Overview

Numark designed the motorized NS7FX DJ Software Performance Controller in collaboration with DJ software creator Serato. The NS7FX combines a premium mixer with 2 motorized, adjustable-torque turntables, real vinyl, and a professional audio interface to deliver performance to satisfy the most hardcore turntablist. The NS7FX also includes powerful effects controls for hands-on manipulation of the wide range of effects built into the included Serato ITCH software.

A full complement of premium faders, knobs, buttons, and Numark's new Strip Search virtual needle-drop control integrates seamlessly with ITCH. The NS7FX exchanges turntable and control information with your Mac or PC at more than 10 times standard MIDI resolution, resulting in a rock-solid hardware/software system that feels as good as it looks.

Developed in partnership with Serato:
The NS7FX was a collaborative development effort with Serato to deliver the finest computer DJ experience. It is a one-to-one, hands-on control instrument for Serato ITCH.

Because it was designed for ITCH, the NS7FX's set up time is the bare minimum. No tweaking, no mapping - just plug and perform.

Perfect feel:
Forget your experiences with other controllers. The NS7FX has 2 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 is the real deal.

Solid, rugged, rubberized buttons and knobs complement 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. It's only natural that Numark's finest crossfader is a component of Numark's finest controller. Numark selected high-performance, D-Type digital-VCA line faders 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. The NS7FX renders ITCH software perfectly simple to operate, with its click knob and large, backlit buttons for 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 the NS7FX's more than 100 LEDs and more than 100 hands-on controls.

The NS7FX has onboard audio outputs so it's the only piece of gear you need to connect to the PA system or powered speakers. The NS7FX outputs 24-bit, 44.1kHz digital audio to the sound system on XLRs and RCAs. The front panel contains a mic input, an RCA line input, and both 1/4" and 1/8" headphone outputs with volume control.

The NS7FX comes with an integrated laptop stand that supplies safe, secure mounting for your laptop. You can use an ultrasmall space because NS7FX elevates your laptop off the table. The NSFX effect controller mounts conveniently onto the laptop stand for integrated effects control without taking up any additional setup space.

Precision control:
The NS7FX sends control information over a USB connection 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 Numark's 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 the NS7FX a great choice for scratch and club DJs alike.

Beat matching is straight ahead with 100mm, smooth, stiff pitch sliders. Plus and minus buttons, by popular request, are back for bending. There's also a zero-point LED, so it's easy to know when you're in the middle.

Audio quality:
Numark took extraordinary care in selecting the components of the audio signal chain. The NS7FX 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 the audio is tight and punchy.

Professional appearance:
The NS7FX's dual decks flank the mixer section. Its recognizable, professional appearance is supported by a 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 to you if you use Scratch LIVE. The new program builds on Scratch LIVE's popularity and adds some new key features. ITCH doesn't require a timecode interface, so the system can be as simple as, say, the NS7FX and your computer! Since ITCH makes timecode a thing of the past, you won't need to worry about needles skipping or vinyl wearing out. You can load your Scratch LIVE crates, loops, presets, and cue points seamlessly in ITCH. The NS7FX also works with most other MIDI DJ software and it supports iTunes.

ITCH is a high-performance portable music system with internal mixing and platter-style playback control. Because it's designed specifically for use with hardware control, ITCH has a clean information display.

ITCH handles audio processing and mixing including channel fading, EQ, crossfading and track trim, which are processed for outstanding control and management of your tracks, ease of recording your set, clip-proof gain management, and BPM calculation using the power of your computer's processor.

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.

ITCH 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.

The History function in ITCH keeps a comprehensive record of every track played and exports sessions from your history to 'txt', 'csv', or 'm3u.' ITCH also has a Loop Roll function that provides a looping effect where the playhead jumps back to normal time when you release the loop. Built-in key support ensures that ITCH reads key tags from MP3 files and displays them in the key column in your library.

First off. Yes. You will need a performance computer for this piece of equipment. That was one thing a lot of people were irritated about. that being said, there are latency and other settings that can be tweaked so Itch will perform as it is needed even on a "slower" computer. Second off, this is a beautiful piece of equipment. It is perfect for any level DJ. I learned how to DJ on scratch live on a buddys cdj's, and was very impressed with how similar itch was to scratch live. I had invested in a VCI 300 a few years back, and grew with that, both as a DJ and with Itch. I needed an upgrade though, call me shallow, but that little table top thing didnt make me "feel" like a DJ. So I got this. And I loved it. It is versatile, easy to use, but most importantly, it is an instrument. It is a professional level, quality device. I have had this for over a year now, and still feel like a child on christmas when jamming out on it. It performs exactly as expected, and the updates that serato keep throwing at us keep improving the functionality of the device. The new Beat Grids are awesome. Itch gets better and better every day. One of the other shortcomings people are talking about is the customer support. I feel bad, because I have never had a problem with serato or numark. they have always been very helpful. My VCI-300 broke, and im assuming they would have treated this the same. Im a college student, in a fraternity, and I DJ frat parties almost on a weekly basis. This thing will stand up to some crazy abuse, and still perform as it is supposed to. Its been over a year of this abuse, and its still my baby. Another one of the things people didnt like was a "lack of versatility". However, Im confused as to what people are trying to do with it that the NS7FX cannot do for them? They are worried about CD, but there is a way where you can just put it in the computer to take songs off a cd while in itch. If you needed to have a mic, there is a mic input. I feel as if the people that are complaining that there is a lack of versatility just give up at the first sign of "inconvenience". I prefer to have everything run through my computer, rather then depending on the instrument itself. What I mean by this. My music is all on my computer. I have no cds. i have no crazy 8 track players or anything. If I wanted to, I could have uploaded the stuff onto my computer before DJing something. There ARE ways around these things. And its really not that hard, either. There is one thing that I wish it did have. And that would be a computer thru function. So you could listen to youtube videos or something else from the computer without going through itch sometimes. This would be nice when trying to play like an iTunes playlist while you are setting lights up, or if someone has a request you dont have to get it on youtube, but like I said, there is always a way around it. You just have to be handy on a computer. Would I recommend this to anyone? Of course. Would I recommend you play around on one before investing? Absolutely. But I am confident that any DJ on any level, entry level to professional, would be satisfied with this instrument. I am one of those people who is always looking to upgrade things. I like to have the nicest things on the market. I legitimately do not want to "upgrade" this. I think it is the best, easiest, and most fun thing on the market right now. And, its awesome to wow people with it. Hope you consider this piece of equipment. You wont be disappointed.

I purchased my NS7 in March 2010 and in August the strip search on my unit started to malfunction. I called Numark support on 8/13/10 and sent it off. My NS7 returned to me on 9/9/2010. BUT when I open my box, I realized that my unit's platters had not been tightly secured, and had been flopping around while loosely threaded on the spindles. While testing my returned unit, I noticed that, A: My platters now wobbled, did not feel the same, and my left deck made a squeaking noise when back spinning quickly. AND, B: The original problem with the strip search had not been repaired. So�ۡ��_. I called Numark and got a new Return Authorization and a promise from a manager that it would be back to me quickly, and that it would be tested before leaving this time. It�ۡ���s now been almost 12 weeks since I originally sent off my unit and I�ۡ���m losing patience. I can tell the phone techs are growing impatient too (its getting harder to get them on the phone). I�ۡ���ve been told that my unit is repaired and it�ۡ���s in testing. Maybe I�ۡ���m over reacting but it has been �ۡ��̏in testing�ۡ�ݕ�_ at the factory for over 3 weeks. Now I�ۡ���m wondering if my unit will be the same, and if not, what will happen then? Probably more of the Numark service department telling me what I want to hear, and blowing me off.

Great System

By William Laurido

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Numark NS7FX Motorized DJ Software Performance Controller:

I bought this to get back to DJing after 20 yrs out of the game. I was looking for something that provided an all in one system. I didn't want to get turntables, mixer, and software. This provided all that plus I love the turning wheels which no other system provides. The look and feel is good quality. I've always liked Numark for their dependability and reliability. I took the plunge and could not be happier. The system is simple enough that even an unexperienced DJ can figure it out. The size is good as well since it doesn't take a lot of real estate. Overall very happy with this system. Will definitely recommend.

My first DJ controller

By Nickalus Estes

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Numark NS7FX Motorized DJ Software Performance Controller:

As I am just getting started in the business of being a DJ (part-time), I thought I would need one the best controllers to start-off!! I must say, this is no beginners dj controller if you're looking for a professional controller you're on the right controller. The NS7fx is obviously easy to learn and grasping the concepts of mixing, fading, etc is effortless!! As someone who knows nothing about controllers of different kinds and manufactures, I've almost got it down. The best birthday gift from my wife a husband could ever ask for hands down!

DJ Service Done Right

By Nicholas Allemand

from Grants Pass, Oregon

Comments about Numark NS7FX Motorized DJ Software Performance Controller:

I love this product. When I found out getting dj turntables and a dj mixer was expensive, I wanted to get a dj controller. Then I found this product. It has the same characteristics as the turntables and mixer combined plus more great features. You don't even need a mouse to set up your songs. This is the modern and current dj tool. It's the development of the DJ world. Get this product, use this dj controller, it's worth every penny of it. DJ Chili Dogg is out! Deuces!

Back to modern roots!

By TOBY JOHANSSON

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Numark NS7FX Motorized DJ Software Performance Controller:

I came across this unit after being a diehard vinyl junkie for quite some time now. I typically play crate vinyl but also have a Serato SL1 setup with turntables. This setup was the perfect road set for my life! I bought it without the FX(I didn't need/use it whatsoever) and also purchased the flight case because of a lot of traveling. I use an old school Macbook Pro, 2.2ghz C2D, 4gb RAM and I can flawlessly run all night on a 2ms response rate. I know people have complained about the level of computer you need to run this setup, but in all reality if you are going to be a computer DJ, the thing you should splurge the most on is probably the computer itself. Any system, no matter how good or bad, will not work properly if choked by the computer's capability. All in all, spend the money, buy a nice iMac or Macbook Pro with at least 4-6gb ram, and enjoy seamless digital vinyl! Also: For a more traditional feel, buy this with a set of butter rugs and cut them down to size and replace stock slipmats....makes a WORLD of difference in feel and response!

Not perfect, but very good.

By Brandon Mancini

from Morgan Hill, CA

Comments about Numark NS7FX Motorized DJ Software Performance Controller:

The Numark NS7 comes extremely close to giving you the feel of having a digital vinyl system only you no longer have to worry about needles, it costs less, and it is also lighter and more compact. However, there are a few cons that you should be aware of. First, if you plan on using the NS7 with a windows 7 computer, it can be problematic getting the software and drivers to work with your operating system. It's not impossible to do this (I managed with my PC running 64bit Windows 7) but the unit does work better with Macs or PCs with Windows Vista. Also be aware there is no built in sampler, meaning you cannot trigger sounds like air horns or sirens with the touch of a button like many DJs like to do. All in all, I am pleased with my NS7. It�ۡ���s everything you would expect in a digital vinyl system compressed into one unit.

The Best Yet

By Dj Prezz

from Folsom, CA

Comments about Numark NS7FX Motorized DJ Software Performance Controller:

I just received my NS7 and have been on it everyday for at least 2-3 hours getting a feel for it. This is a for sure upgrade from the Vestax VCI 300 which is great in its own right. But with the NS7 I find it a lot easier to manipulate scratches and have more options on hot cues. If you can afford this item out the gate....this is great for any level dj. Whether you are just doing this for fun or for a career....you will not go run with this item. Combine this with a Rain or Mac computer.....one word...FLAWLESS!

Thought I would have some fun for new years 2011. Bought the Numark ns7fx and a whole live sound rig and threw a party! Yeah, a lot of money but it paid off. I'm getting calls from left and right to gig all over town! Definitely a great buy. You'll be the show of the party! Very easy to learn on, good quality nobs, and even feels like real turn tables! I will never forget this purchase.
