At NAMM 2019 DJs witnessed the unveiling of the prototype of DJ QBert’s Invader DJ Mixer. This latest product of Thud Rumble is born out of the desire to make a DJ mixer with a built-in computer. Inside the Invader is an Intel NUC i5 board with a 3.4ghz processor, 8gb of ram, and a 256gb SSD storage, along with a midi controller and running on Traktor. The model they have revealed has 8 pads on each side of the mixer. Also placed above and below the touchscreen are a number of knobs, for the equalizer, browsing, and other functionalities. The Invader DJ mixer is also set to run any DVS one wishes to use. To add the finishing touches, this design was a collaboration with Hard Rich and custom gear designer Jesse Dean. With only 33 units for the first run, they are now accepting $0 preorders for this $2,500 mixer at www.thudrumble.com.
