Numark certainly isn't a brand scared to innovate, having produced the first DJ controller for Serato with screens (the Numark NV), and now, the first with displays built in to the jogwheels. What's more impressive is that the Mixtrack Platinum isn't a high-ticket item; in fact, it's aimed squarely at the budget end of the market. In today's review we'll see how it all stacks up...
Numark just announced its new PT01 Scratch portable turntable at DJ Expo 2016. Aimed squarely at portable turntablists, or "portablists", the Numark PT01 Scratch is a compact turntable with a Scratch Switch, which looks like an on/off crossfader. It runs on batteries and comes with a speaker for portable scratching.
Numark just announced the Numark Mixtrack Platinum, a controller for Serato DJ that comes with LCD displays at the centre of each touch-capacitive jogwheel. The onboard screens show track BPM, time, pitch fader position and the deck number you're currently controlling.

Numark just announced the NVII, the successor to its NV controller that was the first Serato DJ controller with built-in screens. Updates include the displays which now show gridlines for easier visual beatmatching and five-column music sorting, along with updated jogwheels.
We got an exclusive video of the Numark Party Mix in action a few weeks back, but here at NAMM 2016 we have had a chance to see a full production unit upfront and personal, and a demure little thing it is too - much smaller than we were expecting, yet still containing everything needed for basic DJing.
