It’s Alive

Four channels of mixing, real slip mats and vinyl, motorized turntables, and a full array of touch-activated knobs and filters and velocity-sensitive performance pads—NS7II is the most responsive DJ console ever created. Nearly every inch is filled with controls that come to life, reacting to your touch and illuminating in response to your style. You get unprecedented visual feedback, ultra-tight control via high-resolution MIDI, and the most comprehensive integration with Serato DJ available. Powerful, cutting-edge technologies blend together perfectly to give you unmatched mixing capability in a rugged, all-metal design that’s born to perform.

The Feel of Real

With NS7II, you can have the best of both worlds. The art of mixing was born on vinyl, and with NS7II that’s where it remains. Like NS7, NS7II has two genuine seven-inch motorized turntables, and both are supported by ultra-high-resolution MIDI—3600 ticks per rotation. You also have your choice of high- or low-torque turntable settings. When it comes to feel, response, and high-performance mixing, it doesn’t get any better. NS7II gives you the unmatched precision and feel of true analog turntables combined with all of the conveniences of your digital music library.

Exclusive Pads from Akai Professional

The heart of music production for decades, Akai Professional’s legendary MPC pads are now front and center on NS7II’s dynamic performance decks. Each pad is multi-color, velocity-sensitive, and instantly switchable between 10 different modes using the Pad Mode buttons. Loop, cue, roll, sample, and slice all with effortless agility and speed while the pads light up in response and give you instant visual feedback. Go beyond mixing and effects to produce in real time, creating new music on the fly and remixing with a depth and musicality never before possible.

Unprecedented Touch-Response Mixing & FX

The world's first and only DJ controller with touch-sensitive knobs, NS7II places an interactive playground at your fingertips. In addition to Numark’s exclusive Strip Search technology, NS7II has filter, effects, and EQ knobs that are intelligent, responding instantaneously to your touch, giving you capabilities you haven’t even imagined ... yet. Perform instant frequency kills, spontaneously combine filters with effects, and more. It’s mixing that is truly interactive and in the moment, making NS7II a live performance instrument built for your creativity and imagination.

Exclusive Serato DJ Capability

Get your hands on the most creative tool for Serato DJ available. NS7II gives you the power to unlock never-before-seen features of Serato DJ through new and innovative hardware controls, including Filter Roll, Filter FX, and Touch FX, which all allow you to control Serato DJ simply by touching an element on NS7II’s control surface. NS7II empowers you with spontaneous performance capability that feels so natural you’ll wonder where you end and the music begins.

Intuitive 4-Channel Control

Ready for anything, NS7II’s four-channel mixer 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 a unhappy crowd. Plus, the built-in 24-bit audio interface was engineered without compromise, giving NS7II audiophile-grade circuitry that keeps your mix clean and clear.

Crushing the Competition

Down to the finest detail, NS7II is in a category all by itself with features and capabilities that other DJ controllers simply don’t have:

Made of Metal

If you want to go pro, don’t go plastic. With its rugged metal body, NS7II crushes the competition, literally. It’s built like a tank.

Dedicated Hot Cue Controls

For the performing DJ, hot cues are simply too important to bury. With dedicated buttons to set and recall, NS7II places comprehensive hot cue control at your fingertips, no digging required.

3-Way Touch Filter Knobs

NS7II’s filter knobs give you unprecedented capabilities. Each filter has three modes: Filter alone, Filter FX, and Filter Roll.

Touch Effects & EQ Knobs

A first-of-its kind feature that revolutionizes modern DJ performance, NS7II’s effects and EQ knobs are intelligent, responding instantaneously to your touch, giving you capabilities you haven’t even imagined ... yet.

Filter Roll

One of the greatest effects you can imagine. By activating Filter Roll, the filter knobs become touch-sensitive and you control a high-/low-pass filter alongside a roll that increases with intensity the more you turn, giving you an instant energy-infusing way to get the crowd moving and leave them breathless. To leave the roll, simply let go of the knob; the filter remains until you’ve turned it back to zero.

Instant Frequency Kills

One tap of the Shift and Touch buttons and NS7II’s traditional EQ knobs become touch-responsive. Kill the low. Kill the mid. Kill the high. Or kill the entire song, all with your fingertips. All four channels on NS7II feature touch-response EQ knobs, giving you instant on/off control for dynamic creative flourishes whenever inspiration strikes.

Filter FX

With one tap of the Filter FX button, each of NS7II’s four filter knobs commands both its filter and an effect of your choice. Turning the knobs will engage a high-/low-pass filter plus the effect, and both the filter and effect increase or decrease in intensity as you turn the knob.

Revolutionary Effects Control

To add an effect, touch the knob. It’s that easy. To adjust the effect, turn the knob. It’s never been easier to interact with your mix. NS7II empowers you with spontaneous performance capability that feels so natural, you’ll wonder where you end and the music begins. 12 Isotope effects to choose from, 2 effects banks per channel, 3 effects per bank, 6 effects simultaneously on any channel.

Real Velocity-Sensitive MPC Pads

For decades, Akai Professional’s MPC pads have been the go-to for performance and production with an unmatched percussive feel and response. NS7II gives you expanded live performance capability with 16 MPC pads—each has classic MPC feel, plus they’ve been updated with RGB illumination, so you have instant visual feedback of what mode you’re in.

Multi-Color RGB Technology

No guessing. No vague mono-color flashing. NS7II’s 16 multi-color pads tell you exactly—and instantly—what mode you’re in, so you can spend your time mixing instead of decoding.

Double-Mode Pads

Each of NS7II’s pads comes equipped with dual-functionality via the Pad Mode buttons:

Cue:

Mode 1: Hot Cue — 8 saved cues
Mode 2: Hot Cue Auto-Loop — Instantly loop your hot cues.

Auto/Roll:

Mode 1:  Auto-Loop — One action with instant access to loop size 
Mode 2: Loop Roll  — Combined with the MPC pads, loop rolls have never been more spontaneous.

Loop:

Mode 1: Loop Bank 1 — 1-4 saved loops and manual loop control 
Mode 2: Loop Bank 2 — 5-8 saved loops and manual loop control

Sampler:

Mode 1: Sample Player — Redrumming has never felt better.
Mode 2: Sample Velocity Trigger — Adding velocity to your samples is easy and natural.

Slicer:

Mode 1: Slicer — Remash your track through replay of 8 slices in time.
Mode 2: Slicer Loop — Remash your loop through replay of 8 slices.

Start Time & Stop Time

NS7II’s direct drive turntables let you start and stop tracks instantly, or you can use the new Start time and Stop Time controls. Another creative tool in your arsenal, this attention-grabbing feature lets you ramp up or ramp down the turntables, perfect for getting the the night started or bringing it to a classic close.

Full Onboard Song Navigation Control

Whether you have 1,000 songs or 10,000 songs, NS7II gives you total command over your music library with dedicated controls that keep your hands off the mouse and your mind in the mix.

Ergonomic Pitch Controls

Easily accessible, the Pitch Bend and Tempo controls are exactly where you need them to be with nothing in the way. You'll never graze a slider or button by accident with NS7II's fool-proof layout.

Pitch 0 LED

Mixing in the dark is easy. Every crucial function on NS7II gives you visual feedback, including the Tempo faders, which have a red LED at 0, so you can be 100% sure—instantly—when the fader is back to center.

Master FX

When you want crush, crash, sweep, or surge the entire mix, the Master FX button puts the power in your hands. Apply your effects across all four channels and hang on for the ride.

BPM Meter

With NS7II, beatmatching is visual, quick, and obvious. You never have to look at your computer again to match BPM.

Curve-Adjustable CP-Pro Crossfader

Surrounded with a healthy border of seamless and smooth metal, the replaceable CP-Pro crossfader lets you cut and crab with precision—there are no screws or seams to scrape your knuckles on.

Spring-Loaded Bleep Reverse

With NS7II, critical capabilities have dedicated controls—they’re not buried and don’t require you to use modifiers or spend time accessing submenus. The Bleep/Reverse switch is solid and spring-loaded, so it returns to center automatically.

Split Cue Headphones

No monitor? Blown monitor? No problem. Flip the Split Cue switch and your headphones are instantly split, the house mix in one ear, the cue mix in the other.

Evolved and Enhanced

NS7II picks up where NS7 left off, breaking the boundaries of modern mixing, giving you creative performance capabilities that have never existed before, and expanding upon NS7’s dynamic design:

4 Deck Selectors

Over time, mixing becomes an instinctual experience driven mostly by muscle memory, so NS7II is designed with your intuition in mind. The four new deck selection buttons are large and located exactly where you need them to be. Combined with its multi-color and intelligent touch-response capabilities, NS7II’s entire control surface makes mixing second-nature.

Enhanced Strip Search

Strip Search, Numark’s exclusive virtual-needle-drop technology now includes a parallel string of bright red LEDs, so you can tell where the track is just by looking. In addition, unlike some imitations, the Strip Search touch strips are positioned intuitively, so you will never hit them accidentally.

2 XLR-1/4” Combo Mic Inputs

NS7II’s main mic input has its own dedicated channel, so all four mixing channels are always available, never taken up by your mic. Plus, the second mic input can be assigned to any channel and switched on and off as needed.

External Device Inputs

Connect drum machines, keyboards, microphones, CDs, or even turntables. NS7II has all the inputs you need on the rear of the console.

Instant Beat Grid Control

Underlying the immense creative capabilities of NS7II are practical onboard controls to give your mix a solid foundation. The all-new Beat Grid buttons let you fine-tune your beat grid on the fly, so all of your effects, slices, and loops fire off perfectly.

2 Large Shift Buttons

All of your primary controls are easily accessible on NS7II, and when you need the second layer, two large shift buttons give you instant access from either deck. And they’re positioned so you only hit them when you want to.

Enjoy the Views

Toggle through multiple views at the touch of a button. The new View button gives you full control over how Serato DJ is displayed on your screen as well as multiple options for effects and sample panel viewing.

Slip Mode

Slip Mode keeps the track moving but muted when you grab the record or start scratching. When you’re done, the track will resume as if you’d never stopped it. Slip Mode combines with With NS7II’s motorized platters and real vinyl discs to give you the ultimate modern platform for turntablism.

Low-Profile Spindle

The updated low profile center spindle adapter above each record prevents accidental knuckle grabs during rotation. Plus, it’s fully customizable for your mixing style both in tightness and look—use your own 45.

Timeless Tape Markers

Some things can’t be improved upon. Taking another cue from the classic turntable setup, NS7II features track indicators on both vinyl records to keep you visually locked on your cue points.

  • Does the NS7II have an attached laptop stand option like the original NS7 did?
    • Yes! The NS7II laptop stand will be available in late 2013 (sold separately).
  • What DJ software supports the NS7II?
    • The NS7II is a native plug & play Serato DJ controller. The NS7II may work with other DJ programs as it is MIDI compatible. Check with your favorite DJ software manufacturer for compatibility.
  • Can the motorized platters on the NS7II be disabled?
    • Yes. The NS7II's motorized platters can be turned off by pressing the Motor Off button on the unit itself.
  • Is the crossfader user replaceable?
    • Yes. The CP-Pro long life crossfader is user replaceable.
  • What flight/travel case can I use to transport my NS7II?
    • The NS7II can use any case that fits the originally NS7, as well as new cases built specifically for the NS7II. There are many vendors that offer flight cases.
  • Why should I get NS7II instead of a digital vinyl system (DVS)?
    • NS7II gives you all of the great features of a DVS system without any of the worries of setup, the fear of skipping or damaged needles, or the need to touch a mouse or keyboard. Track navigation is easy using NS7II’s onboard controls. You also get hands-on control of great features like on the fly, instant looping, instant cues, and optional beat-sync operations. With a very easy and setup and installation process, NS7II lets you focus on what you do best. Simply plug it in and go.
  • Can I connect a CD player?
    • Yes. The auxiliary input can be used to connect a CD player for extra flexibility.
  • Will the mixer inputs work without the computer connected?
    • Yes.
  • Can I replace the vinyl and slipmat?
    • Yes. You can customize NS7II with your own vinyl and slipmat for the perfect look and feel. You can also adjust slip pressure to your personal preference.
  • Can I adjust the motor torque and how will this help me?
    • Yes. We realize that every DJ has their personal preference when it comes to turntables so we have included two torque settings. When set to the high "modern" setting, the NS7II feels very similar to a Numark TTX turntable. In this high setting, the pitch fader responds very quickly. We designed the lighter "classic" setting to be very similar to another very popular turntable's feel. In the lower setting the pitch fader response is gentler.
  • What is Strip Search and how does it work?
    • Strip Search is a virtual needle-drop control that employs via a touch-sensitive, force-sensing resistor. This unique innovation enables you to search within a track with ease simply by pointing with your finger on the strip.
