[NAMM 2013] Numark Mixtrack Pro II Announced (Video Added)
One of the best-selling Digital DJ controllers now has a sequel which will be at NAMM 2013 tomorrow morning. Introducing the Numark Mixtrack Pro II Digital DJ Controller. The new Mixtrack Pro is definitely bigger in size, with illuminated jog wheels and 16 backlit rubberized performance pads similar to those found on the Pioneer DDJ-SX and Vestax VCI-380. The Mixtrack Pro II will come bundled with Serato DJ Intro with an easy upgrade path to Serato DJ (for a cool $129) and compatibility with Virtual DJ and Traktor.
Overall the Numark Mixtrack Pro II looks to be a great update to an already proven and successful entry-level DJ platform. The addition of the performance pads will definitely make the unit more desirable and the backlit jog wheels should provide even more feedback to the user without needing to look at the computer screen. All of the original functions from the Mixtrack Pro are also here in the Mixtrack Pro II including loop controls, hot cue controls, and effect controls. The pricepoint of the Mixtrack Pro will be about $300 at retail and I'm sure it'll be another huge hit for the Numark brand...
The Numark Mixtrack Pro II will be on-sale IMMEDIATELY at your local store following the NAMM Show announcement and we'll be sure to get one into the DJbooth.net Lab immediately for an in-depth HD-Video review... Check out the full press release for more information from Numark below.

Serato DJ includes a wide range of all-new features and capabilities, including stunning new effects powered by iZotope®, ultra-flexible and intuitive MIDI mapping, and the ability to set and trigger up to eight cue points.
“When we first released Mixtrack Pro, there was nothing else like it—it set the bar and gave DJs and aspiring DJs everywhere truly professional capabilities,” said Chris Roman, Numark Product Manager. “Mixtrack Pro II is the next step of that evolution—the bar just got even higher.”
Numark will also be showing Mixtrack II, an all-new version of Mixtrack, which shares all of the same professional updates received by Mixtrack Pro II.
