Pioneer’s DDJ-S1 is the big brother of the WeGO, featuring solid construction, rack mountable, and even includes a dock that allows your MacBook Pro’s keyboard to slip directly under the controller. Pioneer’s “P-LOCK Fader Caps” prevents caps from slipping. This MIDI controller is also a hybrid mixer with built-in digital audio via USB, and analog inputs for your mics and alternative sources. Just plug-n-play with the latest MegaSeg MIDI preset. Denon’s DN-MC6000 is a hybrid 4-channel mixer and MIDI Controller with digital audio in a slim tabletop design (rack-mount kit included).

High resolution 105mm touch-sensitive jog wheels, smooth high resolution sliders, loop in/out, and large cue & play buttons. The VMS2 and VMS4 from American Audio are excellent controller/mixer hybrids that are fully compatible with MegaSeg, including support for newer high-resolution jog wheels and pitch controls, looping functions, superior crossfader response, precision audio circuits, rack-mount options, and an all metal case that’s built like a tank.

The center surface includes a mixer section with crossfader, line faders, deck EQs, and more advanced controls for looping and effects.

With Numark’s DJ2GO you can throw your entire rig into a backpack and have room to spare. DJ2GO is a portable controller that weighs just 13 oz., and provides a familiar layout that includes two platters, a crossfader, pitch and level controls as well as Deck A, Deck B, Master and Headphone gain controls. The Denon DN-HC4500 USB-MIDI controller is a perfect match for MegaSeg, with support of its backlit buttons, VFC‐text readout display, and built‐in high‐quality USB audio outputs, and rack-mount design, this controller has it all...

MegaSeg fully supports Apple’s wireless Magic Trackpad for multi-touch visual beat mixing via our Wave Viewer. This trackpad supports scrolling inertia for realistic momentum. If your current trackpad feels a bit cramped, or your ready to move up from a typical desktop mouse, this is a must have. The Apple Remote is a wireless IR‐based remote control that works seamlessly with MegaSeg. (Other Apple Remote compatible remotes work just as well). Note IR-based remotes work when pointed toward your Mac. In contrast, RF-based remotes (such as the Satechi models below) either use Bluetooth or a special RF receiver, which means you don’t need to aim. The Satechi Bluetooth Multimedia Remote is an RF-based remote that uses the Bluetooth 3.0 standard and works by sending Mac multimedia keys which are compatible with the latest versions of MegaSeg. It’s compact, lightweight, and has a range of about 33 feet. The Satechi SP600 Smart Pointer is an RF‐based (2.4Ghz) wireless remote that comes with a Smart KeyMap software utility allowing ultimate flexibility in custom button mapping to various MegaSeg functionality. It has a 100 foot range (no need to aim), and also sports a built-in laser pointer to entertain your pets. The USB Trigger from Sensorium Embedded is a digital input device that can emulate keyboard buttons from external relay triggers. If you’d like to control MegaSeg with buttons on your desktop or a broadcast control board, the USB Trigger was designed specifically for MegaSeg to handle the job. Connect your own buttons, switches, or relays to trigger MegaSeg’s keyboard shortcuts. It features 24 inputs, all via a single USB connection to your Mac. (Use with USB Overdrive to convert signals to keyboard shortcuts.)
The SRC-2 from Broadcast Tools interfaces two optically isolated inputs and two SPST relays to a RS-232 port (connected to the Mac via a USB-to-RS232 cable). MegaSeg’s Events feature includes a special “Insert Break (Serial Trigger)” function that is pre-configured to communicate with the SRC-2, trigger a relay, and wait until it receives a contact closure to continue. You can adjust the Event settings in various ways to interface with a satellite receiver, or use it to trigger any 3rd playback device. We have an FAQ item that discusses this further.
The MIDI Solutions Footswitch Controller allows you to connect any external relay to control MegaSeg, such as triggering a segue to the next song in the playlist. This box uses a traditional MIDI port, so you will need a MIDI-to-USB converter such as the EMU Xmidi 1x1 USB MIDI Interface.
The Contour Design ShuttlePRO V.2 is a controller with assignable buttons and a pro jog and shuttle wheel. It’s perfect for controlling MegaSeg’s cue and full mixer functionality. Download a preset file here.
Kensington’s Expert Mouse is an incredible trackball that makes it much easier to access all of MegaSeg’s abilities without scooting around a typical mouse. This pool‐sized trackball makes it easy to control your cursor, and you’ll love the weight and feel. The four buttons can be assigned as shortcuts to any keystroke or function.
