Numark showcases at NAMM 2013 the first wireless handheld DJ controller tailored for live performance, called Orbit.
With its ergonomic game-controller design, Orbit features 16 backlit pads, large aluminum control wheel, built-in 2-axis accelerometer, belt clip, and 8 hours of use on a single charge.
Orbit can be used wired via the included USB cable, which also charges it, or wireless using 2.4 GHz connectivity. Orbit features 4 selectable banks of 16 backlit pads, 8 on each side, for adding and blending effects, launching hot cues and samples, and more. Located in the center of Orbit are 4 bank selection buttons, 4 virtual knobs, and a large aluminum-faced touch-sensitive control wheel, which controls the selected virtual knob for instantly tweaking effects and filters.
Inside the Orbit, an embedded 2-axis accelerometer can be assigned to 2 different parameters per bank and activated instantly via 2 shoulder buttons.
All of Orbit's controls are fully mappable, so DJs will be able to customize their settings for effects control, transport control, volume control, or any other MIDI parameter. Numark will demonstrate Orbit for the first time at Booth 6700 at the 2013 NAMM show.
