[NAMM] Numark NDX800
The NDX800 Controller from Numark is a control for DJs who want to use a DJ software to perform, without giving up the ability to play other types of media such as CDs, MP3 CDs or music on USB flash drives.
NDX800 Controller comes pre-mapped with Traktor LE.
The NDX800 Controller has a large touch-sensitive platter for controlling, cueing, and scratching and its slot-loading drive works with both CDs and MP3 CDs. DJs can also connect a USB flash drive for access to MP3s without taking a computer or CDs to the gig. This deck isn’t just an MP3/CD player; DJs can also use it to control MIDI software by connecting NDX800 to their Mac or PC with a single USB cable and they can control the music on their computer using the included Traktor LE software.
NDX800 Controller has an advanced platter that is touch-sensitive for control of tracks on discs, flash drives, and software. The large, 7.75” platter is surrounded by an illuminated ring that acts as a position display, like putting tape on vinyl. The platter's touch sensitivity is adjustable so DJs can optimize its performance for what best suits their needs, the company says.
NDX800 Controller also enables DJs to use integrated, beat-synced DSP effects including chop, echo, filter, flanger, pan, and phaser. It has an internal sampler with overlay and reverse settings so DJs can grab samples and trigger them on three sample/hot cue trigger pads. NDX800 Controller also has looping on a set of controls including adjustable loop-out point.
Numark’s Bleep/Reverse is designed to give DJs the ability to keep time moving forward while they cut or reverse the track. Five stutter starts and cue point memory storage round out this deck's remix capabilities.
