This is the kind of thing that makes VJ's hearts beat a little faster. The Livid Tactic m2 is a control surface for VJ software, with built-in video preview, crossfader, knobs and faders for controlling effects, buttons for triggering clips, and even a built-in LCD screen. This sort of thing used to be ultra-pricey, but the updated model is now $900 including software. And no white plastic. I want to say one word to you. Just one word. Are you listening? Wood. -P.
