"This, dear reader, is about as far away from "toy" as a controller gets ... the NS6 is a beast."
Rock-solid and portable, analog and digital, practical and powerful. With NS6, groundbreaking technology blends with Numark's decades of expertise in engineering cutting-edge DJ gear to gives you one of the world's most advanced controllers. Designed in partnership with Serato, NS6 delivers incredible 4-deck performance with the groundbreaking capabilities of Serato DJ software. NS6 comes ready to control four channels of software plus external sources. Connect and mix CD players, turntables, MP3 players, and more right along side Serato DJ. NS6 is ready to go wherever you want to take it — both physically and musically.
NS6’s aluminum platters are supported by the same ultra-high-resolution MIDI as the award-winning NS7 and the all-new NS7II—3600 ticks of resolution per rotation. It’s the tightest response ever produced in a DJ controller. When combined with NS6’s automatically adjusted platter sensitivity the result is ultra-precise, high definition turntable control. Beyond the platters, NS6 keeps your mix super tight with high-resolution 14-bit MIDI control throughout. Designed to work flawlessly with Serato DJ, NS6 erases the line between hardware and software. Bi-color LEDs also surround each platter, providing both an indication of the deck in control and also a Deck’s playback status, and effects can be instantly accessed by channel.
“Well built, nicely laid out, gorgeous jogwheel performance, true pro feature set, great sound quality, lots of flexibility ... a stylish, fun and professional DJing solution right from the box.” -Digital DJ Tips
At the heart of NS6 is a four-channel mixer that can operate standalone, which means you can mix up to four external sources without even turning your computer on. Connect and mix CD players, turntables, MP3 players, or any other external source—you never have to worry about the awkward silence and inevitable moans of an unhappy crowd. Plus, the built-in 24-bit audio interface was engineered without compromise, giving NS6 audiophile-grade circuitry that keeps your mix clean and clear.
A full range of input and outputs for connecting virtually any device: RCA inputs on each channel and four line-level inputs with two switchable to phono and two switchable to mic. Each of NS6’s four channels has an input selector so you can easily transition between controlling Serato DJ’s four software decks and your external sources. Control Serato one moment; mix in your turntable, iPod, or a mic the next. NS6 makes it possible to grab music from virtually any source and bring it into your mix.
Using just the tip of your finger, you can glide to any point in a track effortlessly, then drop the virtual needle exactly where you want to be. Initially introduced on NS7, Numark’s exclusive Strip Search virtual-needle-drop technology now includes a parallel string of bright red LEDs, so you can tell where the track is just by looking. It’s one less reason to be staring at your computer screen. NS6’s combination of premium features don’t require you to conform to them. They conform to you, empowering you to perform and mix at your highest level. In addition, unlike some imitations, the Strip Search touch strips are positioned intuitively, so you will never hit them accidentally.
