NAMM 2010: Numark NDX800 DJ music player and software controller
Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of DJ technology, announces NDX800, the professional MP3/CD/USB player and software controller.
NDX800 is high-performance control for DJs who blend different a variety of music sources - whether their music is on CDs, MP3 CDs, USB flash drives, or their computer, NDX800 enables DJs to play and manipulate their music.
NDX800 has a large touch-sensitive platter for controlling, cueing, and scratching and its smooth, fast, reliable, slot-loading drive works with both CDs and MP3 CDs. For added convenience, DJs can also connect a USB flash drive for access to thousands of MP3s without taking a computer or CDs to the gig. This advanced deck isn’t just an MP3/CD player; DJs can also use it to control MIDI software by simply connecting NDX800 to their Mac or PC with a single USB cable and they can control the music on their computer.
NDX800 has an advanced platter that is touch-sensitive for superb accuracy and smooth control of tracks on discs, flash drives, and software. The large, 7.75” platter is surrounded by an illuminated ring that acts as a position display, just like putting tape on vinyl. The platter's touch sensitivity is adjustable so DJs can optimize its performance for what best suits their needs.
NDX800 also enables DJs to use integrated, beat-synced DSP effects including chop, echo, filter, flanger, pan, and phaser. NDX800 also has an internal sampler with overlay and reverse settings so DJs can easily grab samples and trigger them on three sample/hot cue trigger pads. NDX800 also has seamless looping on a set of easy-to-understand controls including adjustable loop-out point. Numark’s familiar Bleep/Reverse gives DJs the ability to keep time moving forward while they cut or reverse the track. Five stutter starts and cue point memory storage round out this powerful deck's remix capabilities.
“NDX800 plays and controls all kinds of music media,” said Chris Roman, Product Development Manager, Numark. “NDX800 is the perfect touch controller with professional looks, built-in effects, remixing, looping and sampling.”Posted on 15 Jan 2010 17:30 to category : Instruments News
