projectsoftx6's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"An all-in-one architecture, complete simple and pleasurable to use"

Wacom Nextbeat
No rack, it has a microphone input, headphone jack 3.5, output master and two RCA RCA outputs for each virtual deck
The main features of this product are the tactile surface for the plate, the pitch and the faders and the unit mix detachable table.
Auto BPM calculation is accurate enough as long as you leave the machine to properly analyzing the song

UTILIZATION

It may look like a toy at first, but it's actually a fun instrument! 
Indeed, only after buying it did I get over my biases. It's a real mix up with this machine, I think partly due to the touch.
The screen is very nice with easy navigation. But sometimes the information waveform is not displayed and the first few seconds when switching from one deck to another poster is back in line ... weird. Hope this is corrected in a future update. on the other hand does not change the reading!
The display of the waves is a real plus point to place his cue as to place a loop with the control-independent point of entry and exit.
Part sampler is a must watch as many videos on the net with the possibility of adding each point of the sample.
The touchscreen is very responsive side, the pitch is the only real adjustment to make, but once taken the fold, I mix just as quickly and accurately than a CD player (yes it surprises me too :-) )
Note that I didn't have a problem with stopping the wrong deck. Deck A = orange and Deck B = green, and it shows everywhere! As a bonus you can load music into full play when the fader is at zero so we have extra security (when nervous about making a bad mix)
Note that with my previous board I was already mixing with 2 decks, so I easily found my bearings. No worries about stalling when switching from one deck to another... "it this a DJ or not!?" 
And above all stable and reliable!

SOUNDS

Very slight hiss in the headphones, nothing on the master, lots of potato output! (Headphone and master)
Equalizers are kill total as well as gains.
Responds to any finger and the many demands: it can adjust the volume, speed and pitch all at the same time.
The 6 effects lowpass filter, highpass, flanger, phaser, delay and reverb are well chosen and set in auto mode or manual.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for a few days and I have no hesitations about using this in a performance.
I am satisfied on all points, I only wish there were rubber pots for better feel as well as the ability to remotely change songs.
It easily takes over for my turntables (Denon DN-HS 5500) and I save in size and weight!
Purchase at promo price of € 399 in my shop Dimension'Dj in Strasbourg, I am more than happy!
Have an open mind and experience new sensations! lol

Every night I use it for kiffer music, turn it on and off you go for a session of pure madness! (No need to switch X machines, select your CD's, it's all inside!)
