NAMM 2012: Cyberstep KDJ-One mobile music workstation

NAMM 2012: This year's NAMM show may have been flooded with iPad-related products, but Cybertstep was showing another mobile music making device in the shape of the KDJ-One.

Featuring a sequencer, synth and audio support, this is a Game Boy-style gadget that can be controlled using a combination of multi-touch screen, directional pad, jog dial and buttons. There's Acidized WAV support, while the synth can be used in your main PC/Mac DAW as a VSTi.

What's more, KDJ-One projects can be exported so that they can be worked on elsewhere.

The device's specs are below and there's a quick overview video above. It's available for pre-order now on the KDJ-One website and costs $799 without Wi-Fi and $829 with it. It's offered in white or black and red colour schemes.
