Overview

Designed by Numark in collaboration with Serato, the NS7 console represents the pinnacle of DJ performance control. NS7 combines an all-metal chassis with adjustable torque, motorized, aluminum turntable platters, vinyl, and a professional audio interface to deliver a complete DJ performance solution that will satisfy even the most hardcore turntablist.

A full complement of premium faders, knobs, buttons, and Numark's Strip Search virtual-needle-drop control integrates seamlessly with the included Serato ITCH software. The Numark NS7 delivers hands-on control of every aspect of Serato ITCH and sends data to the software more than 10 times faster than standard MIDI resolution, resulting in a rock-solid hardware/software DJ system that works with Mac or PC and feels as good as it looks. Because it was designed for ITCH, NS7 setup time is the bare minimum. No tweaking, no mapping; just plug and perform.

Serato ITCH is completely compatible with Serato Scratch LIVE crates, loops, and cue points, so the Scratch Live DJ can step up to the Numark NS7 without missing a beat.

Perfect Feel
Forget your experiences with other controllers. NS7 has 2 - 7" motorized, high-torque aluminum turntable platters. The turntable controls feature modern and classic settings that alter the feel to model the feel you prefer. 7", legit vinyl records with 45rpm adapters sit on real slipmats. There's no simulation here”the NS7 turntable controller 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. Numark 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. High-performance, D-Type digital-VCA line faders were selected 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. Numark NS7 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 NS7's more-than 100 LEDs and more-than 100 hands-on controls.

A single USB cable between NS7 and your Mac or PC is all you need to send audio and data back and forth. The Numark NS7 has onboard audio outputs so it's the only piece of gear you need to connect to the PA system or powered speakers.

NS7 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. It also comes with an integrated laptop stand that supplies safe, secure mounting for your laptop. This allows you to use an ultra-small space because NS7 elevates your laptop off the table.

Precision Control
NS7 sends control information over USB at more than 10 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. Numark took that idea and developed their 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.

5 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.

Numark 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 your heart's content with a variety of controls such as Doubling, Halving, Shift, and manual controls. Multiple loop banks per deck make NS7 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. NS7 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 containing only one audiophile-grade bipolar capacitor. This optimized design maximizes phase coherence, ensuring that audio is tight and punchy.

Professional Appearance
NS7'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 features. ITCH doesn't require a timecode interface, so the system can be as simple as, say, NS7 and your computer. Since ITCH makes timecode a thing of the past, you won't need to worry about needless skipping or vinyl wearing out. You can load your Scratch LIVE crates, loops, presets, and cue points seamlessly in ITCH. The NS7 turntable controller 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.

Another benefit of ITCH is that it handles all audio processing and mixing duties, including channel fading, EQ, and crossfading. Track trim are processed for outstanding control and management of your tracks making recording your set easier. There's also clip-proof gain management and BPM calculation using the power of your computer's processor.

It also 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.

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 3-range pitch control: ±8%, ±16%, and ±50% with Key Lock for manipulation of pitch and tempo independently.

I bought the NS7 as a little hobby of mine. I like to collect music, I also help a buddy of mine dj, he is old school with turntables, I am new school with my laptop. The NS7 is very nice I dont think it was to hard to learn all the buttons on it. It was well worth the money in my opinion. I love it, I played some music at my nephews birthday party and had so many people ask me about it and if I do parties.

Sorry Numark, but you missed the mark on this one by going with Serato. The software performance is soooo sub-par! The unit itself is nice, very solid, etc, decent buttons, placement, the platters feel good to the touch. The most noticeable shortcoming is the lack of FX! NO FX? Who made that decision? And itch is so limited, and obviously does not handle the HID information well. If I was Numark, I would have gone with TRAKTOR, which supposedly has support now, for general HID. Still, until the kinks are worked out, took mine back, :( The rep at the store said every other one he sold came back. Beware, especially Mac users. I have heard of pc users having slightly more success, but go to their forums and read... you'll see.

NS7 Rocks!

By Jose A Gonzalez

from East Brunswick New Jersey

Comments about Numark NS7 - DJ Turntable Controller with Serato ITCH Software:

The NS7 by Numark is a very well put unit, solid in construction and all the main buttons that you would normally use are big in size, attention to detail was a big key to the making of this unit. I�ۡ���m from the old school, 70�ۡ���s, and 80�ۡ���s music with the milk crate full of records, now with the digital area everything is so much easer, I bought 2 15 inch Behringer's 2-way B215XL speakers and that�ۡ���s all I need to rock out a party. I like the XLR and RCA capability it has and you can fine tune your style of mixing weather it is scratching which this unit is amazing to do it with or if you just like to mix. I would and have recommended this unit to all me friends and even one of my good friends who never touched a pair of turn tables had a blast with it. This was the best investment I have made. The one thing that would make this the ultimate of ultimate is if it had a section dedicated to some sound affects like echo built in the unit. Hope this helps. Practice and Enjoy. DJ Joey G.

Decent equipment

By Rufio

from New York, NY

Comments about Numark NS7 - DJ Turntable Controller with Serato ITCH Software:

I just purchased this item at the beginning of June 2009 and the price of the equipment was definitely worth the convenience/multiple functions. However, in contrast to Serato Scratch Live and my MK1200s, the feel is just not the same. I would recommend a strong labtop in terms of the RAM processing because Itch seems to time out more often than not.

Best Mobile DJ set up so far!

By Ali Santiano

from Austin, TX

Comments about Numark NS7 - DJ Turntable Controller with Serato ITCH Software:

First, about me: DJ since 1990, used everything from home made mixers to grandma's turntables, to 1200's, CDJ's, RANE etc... Played at hundreds of events so far... The NS7 is the best DJ righ out there right now if you prefer "active" platters and Serato Like softwares. What i LOVE about the NS7: Less cables! I can now set up my entire rig and ready to sound check in 15 minutes! Music control in the mixer just like the RANE 57. Definitely a plus! Build quality is great! All controls feels good and unit also has a far to keep things cool. ITCH software is very easy to learn and provides everything a Mobile DJ needs. If you were to piece together a similar set up seperately, it will cost more (CDJ, Mixer, Serato etc..) This is by far the best system i've owned and i've owned a LOT... Note for the NS7 case: this will make this rig weigh in at 70lbs... i wish they had a soft case as this entire rig with the case is pretty heavy!

Finally!

By MattiBek

from Lexington, KY

Comments about Numark NS7 - DJ Turntable Controller with Serato ITCH Software:

Excellent, I have used everything from tiny midi's to 1200's with Serato. This blows them away, mapping midi's is a pain and they feel like toys. Everybody stands by Technics and Serato but if your travelling like me from gig to gig setting up is a pain. NS7 is everything in one component but not a toy, with plenty of space you don't feel cramped. The platters are tactile and respond like vinyl without the tone arms to get in the way. Worth the price for any real DJ New School or Old. I can't wait to get the NSFX!

This unit is great for any function. It is light weight and compact. No down falls at all. Numark could have when just a little further with effects. I recommend you try it if your a seasoned pro or new in the game. You will be very satisfied. I have been using it for about 1 month.

By DJ Aiden

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Numark NS7 - DJ Turntable Controller with Serato ITCH Software:

As a Professional DJ I use Serato Scratch Live with turntables on a Nightly basis and the NS7 is the by far the one controller that is most like the "real deal"! Using the NS7 is smooth, very responsive, and all at your finger tips!!!
