AIR control

Why is the controller called DJ CONTROL AIR+?
"AIR" stands for Adjustment by InfraRed: it is a contactless control.

  • The DJ places his or her hand flat over the infrared beam.
  • The controller calculates the distance between the sensor and the hand, and converts it into a gradual MIDI command.
  • This MIDI command modulates a setting in the DJ software.

Does the AIR control require specific lighting conditions?

No: the AIR control functions under any lighting conditions.

  • The infrared light beam projected toward the hand is invisible.
  • The sensor captures the infrared reflection on the hand, and uses the reflection to calculate the hand’s distance.
  • The reflection is the same in both daylight and low-light conditions, allowing the AIR control to be used during the day, at night or in places with weak lighting.
  • The AIR control functions with all flesh tones. The only incompatibility is the use of black gloves (as the infrared sensor would not be able to detect the reflection).

8 pads

2 sets of 4 pads control hot cues and samples.

  • The DJ taps on the pads with his or her fingertips to send commands such as cue points or samples.
  • The pads light up when touched.
  • In addition to a binary On/Off command, each pad can transfer velocity information to modulate the command.
  • For example: in sampler mode, the velocity can control the volume of a sample’s playback. The playback volume depends on how soft or how hard the DJ taps on the pad.

Pressure-detecting jog wheels

The jog wheels detect the pressure from the user’s hand.

  • With scratch mode enabled ("Vinyl" button to switch on/off), the jog wheels scratch when the hand’s weight is detected, and stop scratching when the hand’s weight is no longer detected. This allows the DJ to:
    • stop playback by pressing on the jog wheel.
    • restart playback by lifting up his or her hand.
    • scratch by turning the jog wheel while pressing down, and stop scratching by lifting up his or her hand.
    • bend the pitch (if playback is on) / browse within tracks (if playback is off) by turning the jog wheels using their outer ring, to avoid applying downward pressure.
  • With scratch mode disabled, the jog wheels bend the pitch or browse within tracks when turned, regardless of the pressure applied.
