Motorized DJ Software Control System With Effects And Serato ITCH

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 14, 2010) – Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of DJ technology, announces NS7FX, a complete DJ software control system for Serato ITCH consisting of NS7 and NSFX. Numark developed NS7 and NSFX in strategic partnership with software developer Serato. Numark will exhibit NS7FX at the 2010 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, booth 6400, January 14–17.

NS7FX is a complete computer-performance solution for cutting-edge DJs. It advances the art of performing with software, delivering the feel of motorized, adjustable-torque, aluminum turntable platters complete with vinyl, slipmats and 45 RPM adapters while offering Strip Search (patent pending) virtual-needle drop controls, effects controls and a host of other innovative features. Separating the two turntable decks is a premium DJ mixer with replaceable, digital VCA crossfader and line faders, firm, rubberized knobs, rugged switches and buttons.

DJs will not only be impressed by NS7FX’s feel, but also its precision control. Numark and Serato developed a communication protocol for communication between NS7 and the computer that sends MIDI data over a single USB cable at more than ten times the standard resolution. The result is extremely high-resolution control with full MIDI compliance. As a result, NS7FX can also work with most DJ software including Numark’s CUE 6 and Native Instruments’ Traktor Pro.

NS7FX enables DJs to take full advantage of Serato ITCH's effects capabilities. Designed in collaboration with Serato for the ITCH system, the included NSFX effects controller mounts on the system’s integrated laptop stand, delivering seamless integration and hands-on control of the wide range of effects built into the latest version of the ITCH software.

NS7FX contains a high-quality, 24-bit digital audio interface with mic/line input and headphone and system outputs. Two USB cables carry all audio and control data between NS7FX and the computer for simplicity of system configuration and minimal setup time. Professional DJs will find NS7FX to be built to outstanding levels of quality. Its heavy gauge metal housing and components have all been designed for durability on stage and reliability under the punishing conditions of the road.

“Serato and Numark have worked closely to make sure that the integration between NS7, NSFX and ITCH remains as seamless as it always has been,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Numark. “Now DJs can get the complete, flagship ITCH system in one box with NS7FX.”

NS7FX will be available from musical instrument and DJ retailers Q2 2010.
