Phase DVS Essential Wireless Controller - A Game Changer?
Since it was announced the Phase DVS Wireless Controller has had DJ's talking. So what exactly is Phase and why all the fuss?
The Phase DVS system consists of two remotes that, when placed on turntables, let you control music from dj software. Where it stands out is you can do it now, no cartridge, no timecode vinyl needed. Its really rather clever, the two small remotes sit on your turntable and they then sends the output to your DVS setup. As with most wireless tech there's always questions of reliability and usability however MWM seem very confident that the Phase DVS can hold up in any environment.
At £269.00 for a pair of remotes, its priced competitively enough to really tempt any DJ. So what makes it stand out compared to existing timecode vinyl DVS solutions?
More Accurate and Stable
MWM claims the DVS is more accurate than other similar digital systems. The remotes are able to detect every time the turntable rotates, even the smallest movements are picked up which should theoretically nullify issues such as temperamental control signals which can be the case using existing DVS vinyl and cartridges due to signal noise. No more disruption of needles bouncing or from the bass of the sub, as the adhesive on the Phase remotes keeps them from jumping.
Precision and Convenience of using a regular record
You can use the Phase DVS remotes with any setup. Many DJ's want to move to digital but can't step away from their Technics SL-1200. Now you can mix any turntables and benefit from all the tools of digital DJ software.
The Phase DVS system is built to work with Traktor
Virtual DJ as well as Rekordbox
so whichever software you choose to use, the Phase has you covered. It comes equipped with 2 RCA Stereo outputs so can easily integrate into any system.
Battery life and build quality
MWM claim that each remote offers 10 hours of mixing time per charge which is plenty of time for you to rehearse and perform. They also offer an ultimate package which comes with two extra remotes. This lets you use two remotes to perform while charging the other two. It also claims to be impact-resistant so should be pretty tough however i wouldn't recommend flinging it against the wall to test that theory.
MWM's Phase DVS is definitely worth talking about! What you have to remember is that these are simply the first iterations of this product and going forward, there is a lot going for it. With the rise of 5G, bringing even lower latency, it can only improve in the future. As for right now? Its compact, affordable and a clever solution for your DVS setup.
