This isn't the first time we've seen something like this (American DJ had something similar on show at NAMM 2017, which we covered in our Best of the Rest post), but it is worth revisiting the simple yet practical idea you see here, in this instance, in the Numark Production Hub.
Numark's Lightwave speakers are all about combining stuff. Want some speakers you can use for both home use and small parties? Want some speakers that you can plug iPads/iPhones, DJ controllers, and microphones into? And - of course (the clue's in the name) - want some speakers that are also, erm, lights? That'll be the Numarks! In this review, we find out what they're all about.
There is still a market for turntables among DJs. Whether for listening to or mixing with old (and sometimes new) vinyl collections, ripping vinyl to USB, or DJing and scratching using digital vinyl and software, the turntable still soldiers on. Numark's TT250USB is priced at the lower end of the DJ turntable market. In this review, we find out how it stacks up.
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.
Those controllers with screens built in? All the rage nowadays. But what if you're into the idea, and your controller doesn't have screens? Well, if so - and if you're a Serato DJ user - the Numark Dashboard may be an alternative solution. Let's take a closer look...
