The four wheels on the edges of Otus can be used to scroll tracks, FX send, play order of the tracks, pretty much anything you want.
The deck can be used with the two virtual decks in Traktor 3, by selecting the Otus to control deck 1, or click a button and it will control deck 2.
A nice touch is that in each deck mode Otus will change colour (i.e. green or orange). To control all four decks in Traktor, two Otus can be used alongside each other.
Otus is expected to have a UK retail of £450, and we hope to see it on sale in May 2008.
