The Numark Orbit is much smaller and much nicer than I though it’d be from the pictures, as you can see from this world-exclusive video. It’s rubberised, with metal bars, and seems well made. It’s also going to be cheap – US$99 is a good price. It’s pretty open as to how you’d use it too – I think as a second controller alongside your main controller it’s be kind of awesome for effects triggering, and the accelerometer is going to give some people some decent performance ideas.
Of course it’s latency-free wireless which is it’s trump card. A few people have tried this stuff before, but the little Numark Orbit may just have what it takes to succeed. I liked it.
Having seen the video, what do you think? Is this something you could see yourself incorporating into your own DJ sets? Let us know your thoughts below, and check out some other miniaturised gear from NAMM in the links…
