It’s a wireless mixer, but this one’s for lighting, not audio. American DJ’s WiFly could revolutionise the portable lighting market and find a whole new niche for itself.
You know how we love doing things in new ways here at Digital DJ Tips. We love clever portable, good value and modern ways of doing things. So we fell in love instantly with the American DJ WiFly lighting concept.
