Numark komt met een opvolger van de NS6, de NS6II. Een verbeterde versie welke vrij weinig meer weg heeft van zijn voorganger (behalve dan dat de controller nog steeds met Serato DJ geleverd wordt) en lijkt wat dat betreft meer op de Mixtrack Platinum van Numark met wat extra buttons van de NS7II. Controller moet €799,- gaan kosten en zou ergens in eind Q2, begin Q3 leverbaar moeten zijn.
NUMARK INTRODUCES ALL-NEW NEW NS6II 4-CHANNEL DJ CONTROLLER, CONTINUING ORIGINAL NS6’S AMAZING LEGACY
World’s leading innovator of DJ solutions introduces premium 4-channel controller with dual USB ports, built-in displays, line/phono switching and full Serato® DJ
Numark (numark.com), the world’s leading innovator of DJ solutions, today announced the introduction of the NS6II, an all-new 4-channel DJ controller with a full roster of professional features and uncompromised performance at an amazing value. Just as the original NS6 broke barriers and was the first standalone professional 4-channel controller, the all-new NS6II strengthens Numark’s reputation for innovation, performance and fun by delivering a 4-channel controller with dual USB ports, two built-in 2-inch high-res display screens and the full version of Serato® DJ.
The NS6II is a Numark first—a DJ controller that enables connect two laptops to be connected simultaneously, each engaging Serato DJ, for seamless DJ hand-offs. With a push of a button, both DJs can switch between the two laptops and play at the same time between four channels. The possibilities are endless—your creativity has been unleashed!
In addition to the dual USB ports, the NS6II contains a standalone mixer to connect turntables and external media devices. Users can connect two media devices to the RCA line/phono inputs and instantly switch between them. A pair of microphone inputs with independent EQ ensure the DJ can manage their night with ease. With its audiophile-grade circuitry, the NS6II delivers impeccable 24-bit sound quality without compromise.
Its Numark-exclusive capacitive-touch technology really makes the NS6II something special. Utilizing revolutionary Numark technology, the platters are intelligent and self-correcting, sensing every motion and touch to ensure solid, reliable operation no matter what’s going on around you. No other brand of controller has this technology as well as heavy-duty platters that stand up to rigorous use, night after night. In addition, this exclusive capacitive-touch technology is also in the NS6II’s knobs, allowing for unique filter effects, instant and spontaneous effect control, as well as EQ frequency elimination simply by touch.
Rubber MPC style performance pads give users quick access to hot cues, auto loop/roll, manual loop mode sampler and slicer. Each function doubles-up with sub functions to give DJs access to a total of 16 velocity-sensitive pads.
