From the internet I managed to gleen that the Evolution X-Session MIDI controller is basically a DJ tool that can be used to scratch, cut loops and mix tracks using a 60mm cross-fader.

It’s other features include,

1. 10 assignable buttons that allow you trigger audio loops and digital effects.

2. You can also instantly mute and un-mute tracks.

3. 16 MIDI assignable knobs that give you control over volume, panning, digital effects and other MIDI controlled synth parameters.
