First, the good news: the new Ecler NUO4 has been launched, and it’s got some hot features, including completely-assignable controls so you can easily integrate computers running software like Traktor DJ or Ableton Live.

UPDATE:
Thanks to everyone that attended, esp. Howard, Frank and Dan. Props to Sean from Wish Bar and Lounge (1539 Folsom St. SF) for hosting. Great spot – check it out.
