Numark NS7FX

Designed by Numark in collaboration with Serato, NS7FX represents the pinnacle of digital DJ performance. NS7FX combines a premium mixer with two motorized, adjustable-torque turntables, real vinyl, and a professional audio interface to deliver a complete performance solution that will satisfy the most hardcore turntablist. NS7FX also includes powerful effects controls for hands-on manipulation of the wide range of effects built into the included Serato ITCH software.

A full complement of premium faders, knobs, buttons, and our new Strip Search virtual needle-drop control integrates seamlessly with ITCH. NS7FX exchanges turntable and control information with your Mac or PC at more than ten times standard MIDI resolution, resulting in a rock-solid hardware/software system that feels and as good as it looks.

You want the feel of real decks and vinyl. You want the power and flexibility of a computer-based DJ system. You need NS7FX.


DEVELOPED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SERATO
NS7FX was a collaborative development effort with Serato to develop the finest computer-DJ experience. It is a one-to-one hands-on control instrument for Serato ITCH.

Because it was designed for ITCH, NS7FX setup time is the bare minimum. No tweaking, no mapping; just plug and perform.


PERFECT FEEL
Forget your experiences with other controllers. NS7FX has two seven-inch, motorized, high-torque aluminum turntable platters. The turntable controls feature modern and classic settings that alter the feel to model the feel you prefer. Seven-inch, legit vinyl records with 45RPM adapters sit on real slipmats. There’s no simulation here – NS7 is the real deal.

Solid, rugged, rubberized buttons and knobs compliment a high precision, replaceable CP-PRO crossfader and D-TYPE line faders for an unquestionably high-quality feel. We selected the CP-PRO digital-VCA crossfader because it is outstandingly durable with low wear for a long life. It has a solid feel that is smooth and rigid. It’s only natural that our finest crossfader is a component of our finest controller. We selected high-performance, D-Type digital-VCA line faders for their rugged, long-life performance. Like the crossfader, the line faders are replaceable. The crossfader offers contour adjust and reverse adjustment, enabling you to customize its operation.


SYSTEM SIMPLICITY
Forget the mouse. Forget the keyboard. NS7FX renders ITCH software perfectly simple to operate, with its click knob and large, backlit buttons navigating though your music library. You’ll spend less time looking at the screen and more time enjoying performing thanks to the visual feedback you get from NS7FX’s more-than 100 LEDs and more-than 100 hands-on controls.

NS7FX has onboard audio outputs so it’s the only piece of gear you need to connect to the PA system or powered speakers. NS7FX outputs 24-bit, 44.1 kHz digital audio to the sound system on XLRs and RCAs. The front panel contains mic input, RCA line input, and both 1/4" and 1/8” headphone outputs with volume control.

NS7FX comes with an integrated laptop stand that supplies safe, secure mounting for your laptop. You can use an ultra-small space because NS7FX elevates your laptop off the table. The NSFX effect controller mounts conveniently on the laptop stand for integrated effects control without taking up any additional space in your setup.


PRECISION CONTROL
NS7FX sends control information over USB at more than ten times the standard MIDI rate. This innovative communication technique yields extremely high-precision, low-latency control.

There’s nothing like dropping the needle on a record for quickly locating a point in the track. We took that idea and developed our own modern take on it with Strip Search, the unique virtual-needle-drop touch strip. You can locate a point instantly within the track using the on-screen waveform and Strip Search.

Five hot-cue-assign buttons on each deck digitally mark your cues on the track. These marker points are recallable in ITCH and Scratch LIVE, and you can load Scratch LIVE cue points in ITCH.

We developed an extensive Serato-style loop section on each deck for creative remix capabilities. You can choose between manual and auto-loop functions and an automatic BPM analyzer further assists loop makers. Creating automatic smart loops of any measure length is a breeze, and you can mutilate and modify to heart’s content with a variety of controls such as Doubling, Halving, Shift, and manual controls. Multiple loop banks per deck make NS7FX a great choice for scratch and club DJs alike.

Beat matching is straight ahead with 100mm, smooth, stiff pitch sliders and plus and minus buttons, by popular request, for bending. There’s a zero-point LED, so it’s easy to know when you’re in the middle.


AUDIO QUALITY

We took extraordinary care in selecting the components of the audio signal chain. NS7FX contains a host of professional audio connectors and a multichannel, 24-bit USB digital-audio interface.

The high-definition post-mix analog audio output features a minimized circuit path with containing only one audiophile-grade bipolar capacitor. This optimized design maximizes phase coherence, ensuring that audio is tight and punchy.


PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE

NS7FX’s dual decks flank the mixer section. Its recognizable, professional appearance is supported by clean design in matte and glossy black. The entire unit is housed in a heavy-gauge, industrial-strength metal casing that is ready for the torture of travel.


SERATO ITCH SOFTWARE
Serato ITCH is already familiar if you use Scratch LIVE. The new program builds on Scratch LIVE’s popularity and adds some key, new features. ITCH doesn’t require a timecode interface, so the system can be as simple as, say, NS7FX and your computer! Since ITCH makes timecode a thing of the past, you won’t need to worry about needles skipping or vinyl wearing out. You can load your Scratch LIVE crates, loops, presets, and cue points seamlessly in ITCH. NS7FX also works with most other MIDI DJ software and supports iTunes.

ITCH is a high-performance portable music system with internal mixing and platter-style playback control. Because it is designed specifically for use with hardware control, ITCH has a clean information display.

ITCH handles audio processing and mixing including channel fading, EQ, crossfading and track trim are processed for outstanding control and management of your tracks, ease of recording your set, clip-proof gain management, and BPM calculation using the power of your computer’s processor.

Serato's unique color waveforms provide an easy identification of sound and changes in the track. ITCH can set and store cue-points. It offers three-range pitch control: ±8%, ±16%, and ±50% with Key Lock for manipulation of pitch and tempo independently.

ITCH has library management tools for backup and restoring your music. Advanced input and mix recording capabilities include recording your mix or just the aux input for sampling. The software supports AIFF, WAV, MP3, and AAC audio files.

The History function in ITCH keeps a comprehensive record of every track played and exports sessions from your history to 'txt', 'csv', or 'm3u'. ITCH also has a Loop Roll function that provides a looping effect where the playhead jumps back to normal time when you release the loop. Built-in key support ensures that ITCH reads key tags from MP3 files and displays them in the 'key' column in your library.

Wow.

November 15, 2010

Has to be the best controller in its class. Has the feel of real vinyl and saved me from buying a lot of other equipment. Can't think of any pro's/con's off hand only because the NS7FX has too many pro's to list and the con's are basically nitpicking. If you want a superb DJ controller, look no further. This will get the job done. I mean, I actually SAVED money by going with this controller by not having to buy other expensive mixers. Also in my setup I use a PC and a Mac, this works exceptional with both. It took a little set up but I use both constantly.

Pros: AWESOME fun Easy to use Nice layout Dead on feel Cons: For flawless software playback, you HAVE to use a MAC. They like to break, the service department is slow, and prone to mess ups.
