All In One Controllers
The Numark Mixtrack Quad is the 4-deck version of the newly released (and reviewed) Mixtrack Pro II Digital DJ controller. The Mixtrack Quad comes bundled with Virtual DJ LE and the user gets two additional decks/channels to mix with, multi-colored LED's on the performance pads/jog wheels, and even better construction for added durability. We're currently working on the full HD-Video and written review which will be completed shortly, but be sure to watch the unboxing and first impressions video to see what comes in the box.
The folks over at Serato DJ spent some time with Nick Hook to talk shop and to get busy on the Pioneer DDJ-SX with some cool Trap style mixing. The Pioneer DDJ-SX is still the premier DJ controller for the full Serato DJ software and to date it still offers the most control over the extensive features in the Serato DJ software.
Pioneer DJ has just announced its next generation DDJ-WeGO2 compact DJ controller that is essentially the same as the original but adds a new carry-handle that functions as a iPad/iPhone stand and a new Pioneer/Apple lightning cable to connect to the new iOS devices. The new DDJ-WeGO2 looks almost identical to the original DDJ-WeGO, but the added Multi-Purpose Grip and iOS cable are sure to appease many iPad/iPhone users who are looking for a good quality and compact controller to get in on some DJ action.
Some time ago, we reviewed the Hercules RMX-2 and the 4-MX DJ controllers which were both made of metal and had lots of professional features for all levels of DJ's. This week, we received the newest Hercules DJ controller called the Control Air+ (Plus) which is an update to the first Control Air which is the first DJ controller to integrate an IR sensor to control effect parameters. The Control Air+ has an updated layout and more features than the original.
Calling all DJ's!!! We want your feedback! We need DJ's like you to answer a few short questions about the way you DJ, how you DJ, and what you DJ with on a regular basis in order to help companies better understand the direction of the industry. We will randomly select a survey participant for the excellent grand prize in the form of a Traktor Kontrol S4 DJ Controller, (2) Stanton ST-150 Super-OEM turntables, and a Traktor Scratch Package to bring it all together for some DVS timecode fun!
The Traktor Kontrol S2 Digital DJ controller is now near the end of it's product run as Native Instruments slashes the price before making space in their warehouses for the "future". Following the final pricedrop of the Traktor S4, the S2 is now also on sale for only $399. We reviewed the Traktor Kontrol S2 about two years ago and its still a VERY formidable controller for any DJ who needs a great compact controller for Traktor Pro.
The Numark DJ booth was buzzing big time this year at the Atlantic City DJ Expo because there were three brand new controllers on display and open for everyone to use. There was the Numark Mixtrack Quad, the Mixtrack Edge, and the holy grail of all Numark controllers... the NS7 Pro II. We spoke to our good friend and Numark staff-member DJ AP (Allen Joseph) who gives us an Exclusive Demo and Walkthrough of the NS7 Pro II that will be available to the public in early October.
The Numark Mixtrack Edge was also on display at the 2013 Atlantic City DJ Expo and we were able to get lots of play time with the Edge. The Numark team was gracious enough to give us an exclusive walkthrough video to let us know what the Mixtrack Edge it's all about. This new ultra-slim DJ controller has a high-quality aluminum build while providing easy-to-use controls for DJ's on the go or DJ's with limited space or budget
