News Numark Mixdeck Quad

Numark introduces the MIXDECK QUAD, a DJ controller and player with integrated effects, direct connection for iPad or iPod touch, and inputs for CD and USB flash drives.

 

Numark will unveil the MIXDECK QUAD at Hall 5.1 Stand #B45 of the 2011 Musikmesse show from April 6–9 in Frankfurt, Germany.

MIXDECK QUAD is a DJ system with 4-channel analog and MIDI mixer. With the integrated four-channel mixer/controller, DJs can cue and layer, mix, remix, and record with music media including CDs, MP3 CDs, USB flash drives, DJ software on a laptop or iOS devices like the iPad and iPod touch.

 

Based upon the MIXDECK controller, the MIXDECK QUAD adds support for core MIDI on the iPad and iPod touch, opening the world of iOS Apps like Algoriddim’s DJAY to the DJ’s rig. MIXDECK QUAD also offers a functional four-channel digital/analog MIDI mixer, allowing control of a connected iPad or iPod touch and a computer while mixing from CD, flash drives, mics, or external sources.

 

MIXDECK QUAD comes with Traktor LE DJ software in Europe and Asia, while North and South American DJs will receive Virtual DJ software in the box. When combined with MIXDECK QUAD, these DJ software packages are designed to “turn a Mac or PC into a digital DJ system.” Users of other DJ software can control their MIDI software application with MIXDECK QUAD without the need for timecode, using a USB or 30-pin connection.

 

Each one of MIXDECK QUAD’s decks enables the DJ to shape their performances with integrated, beat-synced DSP effects that include chop, echo, filter, flanger, pan, and phaser. Each is adjustable and a dedicated wet-dry fader controls them all.

 

MIXDECK QUAD contains a set of beat and pitch tools designed to help DJs with beat matching and harmonic mixing. You can start playing a track and MIXDECK QUAD automatically analyzes its BPM (tempo), and displays it on screen. There’s also a Tap tempo button for manual BPM entry. You can alter a track’s BPM by ±6, 12, 25, and 100% using the pitch fader. For each of those ranges, DJs can also engage Key Lock, which holds the pitch (key) of the track while the DJ independently manipulates its BPM. There’s also a set of pitch-bend buttons on each track.

 

MIXDECK QUAD also delivers remixing tools, including looping on a set of controls, sampling, and accessible hot cues. Numark’s Bleep/Reverse is designed to offer the ability to keep time moving forward while the DJ cuts or reverses the track.

 

DJs can play tracks from discs in single-track, continuous, and programmable playback modes. Fader Start enables MIXDECK QUAD to start playing the track that is cued up when the crossfader is moved for “smooth” transitions. DJs can also use Fader Start with compatible CD players connected to MIXDECK QUAD’s inputs.

 

Availability

The MIXDECK QUAD will be available Q3–2011 at MI and DJ retailers.
