Overview

NS6 is a 4-channel Digital DJ controller with a complete, built-in mixer and four decks of software control. A true DJ controller and standalone 4-channel mixer with effects, the NS6 gives you tons of versatility and control for professional DJs. NS6's easy-to-use dual-platter system has been designed in collaboration with Serato to deliver powerful breakthrough performance to DJs of all kinds.

Nice Wheels
NS6 borrows from the popular designs of Numark's award-winning NS7FX and V7 controllers and delivers substantial new features including some of the most responsive, high-resolution touch-activated platters ever produced in a DJ product. The wheels on the NS6 deliver 3600 ticks of resolution per rotation; when combined with NS6's automatically adjusted platter sensitivity, the result is ultra-precise, high-definition turntable control.

In addition to high-quality control functionality, NS6 contains a fully functional 4-channel digital mixer that can be used with or without the computer, making the NS6 one of the most versatile DJ controller and mixer combination in the world.

Enhanced Strip Search
Numark introduced Strip Search virtual needle drop technology to the DJ world with the NS7. NS6 takes this one step further by adding position indicators that allow you to always know track position, giving one less reason to need to look at the screen. Bi-color LEDs also surround each wheel, providing both an indication of the deck in control and also a deck's playback status. Effects can be instantly accessed by channel.

Like an Old Friend
The simple-and-intuitive design of the NS6 includes favorites like mouseless Serato library navigation, Key Lock, complete Pitch Control, manual and instant Looping and Hot Cues. New features have been added including direct access to beat grid controls and beat skip, which allows you to juggle the track inline with the beat so that it never loses sync.

The NS6 includes a professional 24-bit audio interface to guarantee pristine audio quality from the computer. A full array of inputs and outputs are present, including XLR outputs, headphone out, two mic inputs, two phono inputs, four line-level inputs, and USB to connect the system to a Mac or PC.

The NS6 comes with Serato's ITCH DJ software and tightly integrates with ITCH thanks to close collaboration between Serato and Numark. NS6 also employs the proven, cutting-edge control technology invented by Numark in the NS7, in which turntable and control information are communicated between the hardware and software at more than ten times standard MIDI resolution. This massive data stream creates the rock-solid, latency-free control for which DJs worldwide have hailed NS7. Because NS6's communication is based upon MIDI, you can use it with a variety of MIDI software.

Ok guys after reading some of these reviews, I see that you can't please everyone. So this goes out to all the newbies as far as using MIDI mixers. I have been DJing since 84 and this is my first time ever buying a mixer like this one. I am here to tell you this mixer is a great one. If you are having issues setting it up please call tech support instead of taking it back. Now I myself use windows xp and it worked fine when I set it up. If you have Vista, you may have problems with it. I tried on my laptop with vista and had problems installing the software. As for as the mixer, I was suprised how quickly I got use to scratching on jog wheels. They are made solid and I like the size of them (saw a few up close and they were too small). Mixing with four channels is nice too. My first gig I did with the mixer, I played music for six hours with no issues what so ever. I even used my 12's with it. This is a great mixer. If you have the money, this is well worth its weight in gold.

This controller was a solid controller for Serato Itch. It has Itch branding on the unit, and was made specifically for serato itch. Serato Itch is End of Line as seen here http://serato.com/dj/faqs and Itch users will have to wait for an upgrade in 2013 for Serato DJ which will only be available for Pioneer as of November 2012 for Pioneer's upcoming Pioneer DDJ SX DJ Controller. This was a solid unit when Itch was released. 4 deck control, easy access to effects and crates for loading songs without the need of a laptop keyboard. Sound quality is amazing. Also works with Traktor software (doesn't support full funtion for the remix decks included in the latest version of Traktor) This controller is dead in the water for those purchasing a new controller now. There is limited support for the latest version of traktor (remix decks) and Serato Itch is end of line, you're stuck with a controller branded with End of Line software. Re-sale value is terrible because of the Itch branding on the controller (which is now end of line)

Still the best, sold by the best

By Harold

from pgh, pa

Comments about Numark NS6 Digital DJ Controller:

The NS6 has been through a bunch of Serato software upgrades and continues to be a solid performer. Solid design and instinctive controls. Guitar Center is the only place I buy my gear because of their first class customer service.

NEW TO THIS...

By Curnel

from Jamaica.NY

Comments about Numark NS6 Digital DJ Controller:

I'm...51yrs. young....This is my first controller. I haven't mixed in 30yrs. I am very impressed with this unit. It didn't take to long to get it set-up and running but I love it. I highly recommend it to anyone be it PRO or NOVICE (which I am)...so I've been playing with it for about 5 days... I know there is so much more this thing can do, and I'm gonna learn as much of it as I can...I give 10 stars...Oh another thing if your playing a song and it goes blank, the song has the problem...not the mixer, I found that out today, if you have another version, play that one ,it should take care of the problem.

Solid Product

By steven

from Arizona

Comments about Numark NS6 Digital DJ Controller:

I bought this controller about a year ago, used it heavily every weekend since and it's still rocking great. I originally bought this controller for its price, style and features that is had over other controllers. Like I said I've used, or should say beaten the heck out of this thing from club venues and other special events just about every weekend and it's still going strong. I am very surprised that a controller can be so tough. It is a strong build, metal, not plastic and doesn't feel cheap. Platters are very responsive and can take some getting used to but are awesome. Only problem that I have had was a power issue and it just seems to have a weak power cord, but you can buy a replacement or one that has a thicker cord and it does great. Pros : Great Value. Solid build. Great Features. Work Horse. Cons : Power Cord seems flimsy, No Independent Channel meters.

Not recommended - won't work with current Mac software

By Evan Smith

from Bethesda, MD

Comments about Numark NS6 Digital DJ Controller:

I really liked this controller and it worked fine, until I needed to upgrade my Mac OS to access other software, and found out that Numark is not providing software updates for the NS6. The current OS X version, Mavericks, has been out for seven months, but Numark says they do not have a driver for it, nor can they say when (or if) they will ever provide one. Their tech support solution is to use another computer or reformat your drive and fall back to an earlier version of OS X. Providing updated drivers within a reasonable time so you can continue to use your purchase with the latest operating systems is a pretty basic obligation for manufacturers. If you have a new Mac, this product won't work with it. Or, if you have an old mac and want to run current software, you also can't use the NS6. Personally I wish I had known that Numark doesn't devote enough resources (or maybe any resources) to support. A product this expensive should have more than a 6 month life.

JUST BECAUSE IT LOOKS NICE DOES NOT MEAN IT IS GREAT.

By Andre Lewis

from Jersey

Comments about Numark NS6 Digital DJ Controller:

I purchased the NS6 and played with it for a while. I liked everything about it but I had to take it back because the channel faders were terrible. I would turn the channel fader up to the middle (50%) position and would not here hardly any sound. I then turned it up to 75% and yet still could hardly hear any music. I had to raise the channel fader all the way up to the 85% position just to here the audio sound. I I even tried to adjust the channel curves and that did not even word. The only way you could here music from the 5%, 10% or 25% position is to have the channel curve set for sharp cuts (meaning full volume at at all %percent levels (10%, 25%, 75%, or 85% etc.).

Best Digital Mixer

By Taylor Lovett

from Oxford, Ohio

Comments about Numark NS6 Digital DJ Controller:

This is by far the best digital-only mixer out there. No CD's, no vinyl. Just the mixer and your computer. It's exactly what I wanted and exactly what I expected from Numark. ITCH is not my favorite software but its not terrible, works just fine. I love having 4 channels to mix with and the assignable effects are great, including the slider to use them. It took me a few hours out of the box to get it working but once I figured it out, it was a lot of fun to play around with. The unit itself is well put together and feels high quality. The turntables don't move like the NS7 but that doesn't bother me because my last controller didn't either. The lighting effects on the unit are pretty sweet, my school colors are red, black, and white, so I liked it right off the bat. The thing I like most about the NS6 is that you really don't have to use the computer at all. Almost everything is controlled with the NS6. My old controller wasn't like that at all. Now I find my computer switching to screensaver because I don't use it very often. The only downfall is that the software/controller require a fairly fast processor to work well. Every once and a while a track will pause for a few seconds if I have a bunch of other stuff running on my computer. Very solid mixer though, I would definitely recommend it.
