DJ and Grammy Award winning producer Tiësto has teamed up with a well-known kids electronics company to launch The Next Beat by Tiësto, dubbed as “the first Midi controller geared towards budding DJs”.

With this limited-edition controller, Tiësto says he hopes to inspire beginner DJs by “empowering them with an easy-to-learn, user-friendly interface, along with the music they need to begin their creative journey into the world of DJing”.

Integration with Beatport DJ is seamless, making it easy for DJs at any level to get started quickly.

The Eldohm-manufactured controller works with Beatport DJ, the DJ app from Beatport and Beatsource that runs in a browser, so new DJs don’t have to worry about buying music, instead being able to use those streaming services, with a 30-day trial included. (This also means it will work on Chromebooks.) It also works with Algoriddim’s djay software on Mac and iOS, the latter available via Bluetooth, built-in to the controller. Basic tuition from the man himself is also included.
