Numark intros NV controller for Serato DJ

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 18, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Numark has announced NV, an intelligent controller for Serato DJ.

Numark NV
Featuring high-resolution color screens that provide extensive visualization of Serato’s flagship DJ platform and advanced interactive controls, NV opens all-new doors for the modern performing artist.

With two 4.3-inch, full-color screens integrated into its sleek, compact chassis, NV completely redefines the software-hardware experience for professional DJs. Using NV, performers experience feedback of Serato DJ – an award-winning software platform for digital DJ’ing – within critically acclaimed Numark hardware. Another first for DJ controllers, NV includes downloadable Remix Packs from world-renowned Toolroom Records, allowing artists to remix with audio stems from the leading electronic dance music label.

NV’s backlit performance screens deliver vivid, real-time visualization of Serato DJ; complete with spinning Virtual Decks, effects (FX), Cue Points, waveforms and more. Supporting four decks of control, its screens also provide song library navigation and detailed waveforms respective to each deck. Now, performers can manage set elements with the source laptop closed or out of sight without sacrificing functionality. Further, eye travel from the laptop screen to the controller is eliminated for seamless operation.

“NV has that ‘x-factor’ DJs have been searching for,” says Karl Detken, Numark Marketing Director. “It completely re-imagines the DJ experience while infinitely expanding creative performance options. Feedback elements are placed in the middle of the action, not away from it. The crowd will never again question what the DJ is doing in the booth, nor will the DJ question what they are doing with their hands.”

Incorporating the groundbreaking touch-activated controls and performance pad modes introduced with NS7II, NV empowers progressive track manipulation on-the-fly. FX, EQ and filter knobs are capacitive – responding with a twist, a touch or both. Now, DJs can unlock textures and transitions limited only by the imagination. All-new touch-activated metal platters provide jog, scrub and scratch duties while intelligent adaptive platter technology optimizes touch-response based on the user and host environment. Users can expect the tactility and reliability needed for the stage’s biggest moments, every time. A total of 16 velocity-sensitive pads provide intuitive control over 10 pad modes for finger drumming, sample slicing, effortless looping, hot cues and more. The ultra-thin NV and its intelligent controls were painstakingly crafted to inspire confidence in transit or in the booth.

“With its embedded, full-color screens, the Numark NV is a breakthrough in digital DJ controller technology,” noted Serato CEO AJ Bertenshaw. “Numark has achieved an unprecedented level of integration with Serato DJ that blurs the line between hardware and software. We cannot wait for performers to experience it first-hand.”

Numark NV features

  • Integrated displays let you focus on the music, not the computer.
  • Full-color, 1:1 real-time visualization of Serato DJ software.
  • Intelligent, touch-activated EQ, filter and effects knobs.
  • Groundbreaking effects tweaking, EQ kills, and filter sweeps.
  • 16 velocity-sensitive trigger pads with backlit RGB feedback.
  • Plug and play with Serato DJ (included) – no purchase necessary.
  • 4 decks of cutting-edge Serato DJ control.
  • 10 pad modes for triggering samples, cues, loops, and slicing.
  • 2 dual-zone wheels with adaptive touch technology.
  • Includes Toolroom Records Remix Packs.
  • Toolroom Records Remix Pack features audio stems from the world’s premier dance music label.

NV will be showcased at the DJ Expo, August 11-14 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. NV will available for purchase this fall, priced at $699.99 USD.
