The Numark Mixtrack is a DJ Controller that has 2 jog wheels and comes with Serato Dj Software. The Serato DJ Software that it comes with is not even close to being one of my favorite DJ software programs, but it will work great if you are a new user. Since it is made for Serato you will have no issues installing and using it with that software. You can however use the Numark Mixtrack with whatever software you want to use it with but it could throw you for a loop trying to set it up. It took me forever to get it set up with a few different software programs. I only got the chance to use the Numark Mixtrack for about 6 hours all in one day and the first thing that I notice with it is that it was really fun. There was no way that I could do a live set with it because it just is not made well enough for me to use it but for just messing around with at home made those 6 hours pass in no time.
Setting it up with Serato is simple and you will be using it right away. The learning curve is small if you have used a similar unit like this before. If it is your first time then it will only take you about a hour to get all of the simple and most basic functions of it down and learn to use it with Serato.
The worst part of the Numark Mixtrack is that it comes with Serato, I cannot stand that program and it is not professional at all. I have seen some DJ’s use Serato for their live sets before and the rocked it! But for me it just doesn’t cut it. Serato will never be a part of my set.
