Deckadance releases a new version of its software, but under a new name and new company.
Browsing the internet sphere this Thursday, I stumbled on what is being claimed to be a legit leak on a MK2 version on the Pioneer DJM 900. The 900 first came out about 5 years ago, and has become a staple in the DJ booth. It came Traktor certified, then a Serato certified version came out. So yeah, it was Pioneer making sure their mixer would be the go to choice in the DJ booth.
The NI Team continues releasing brand new soundpacks for users of its popular Maschine Production Stations to keep things fresh for aspiring producers when making new tracks and beats.

Check out the details after the jump!
Turntablism has seen somewhat of a resurgence in the last few years, also with more DJ softwares offering pretty advanced DVS systems. And there are great options from Super-OEMS to entry level, and Numark wants to bring something “in the middle-ground”. The Numark TT250 turntable is just that and we have a quick demo video with DJ A-Smooth directly from Numark to show what they can do.
The new V-MODA Crossfade Wireless is the company’s first cordless headphones that sport the same over-the-ear 50mm drivers and overall construction as my favorite DJ headphones, the M-100’s. The Crossfade Wireless headphones are rechargeable via USB, can use the same accessories and shields as the M-100’s, and they even have almost the same sound signature when running in wireless mode and cable mode. Check out our unboxing & first impressions video to see all that comes in the package.
Numark has recently released its newest flagship controller the NS7III. In this newest version, the Numark NS7III has all the same features and layout of the NS7II controller we reviewed last year, but it also adds three new 4.3-inch full-color screens for full track and navigation information without the need to look at the laptop screen. Check out our full video review where we put these claims to the test and see if the new NS7III is a real improvement.
