MESSE06: Numark Debuts Hard Drive Mixing Station

Numark have announced the introduction of HD MIX, a complete professional DJ performance system with a built-in hard drive. Specifically designed for professional DJ applications, Numark say that the HD MIX is the only performance workstation of its kind to centralize all DJ controls and music in one simple and easy to use system.
At the core of the HD MIX is an 80 GB replaceable built-in hard drive coupled with a CD drive. The CD drive is included for performance playback and ripping music directly to the internal hard-drive eliminating the need for DJ’s to transport CD’s. To further simplify computer connectivity the HD MIX includes USB 2.0 and is compatible with MAC and PC computer platforms. HD MIX allows the user to record directly to the hard drive from any input source, including the ability to record a live performance while in action.
As a professional player, the HD MIX includes seamless looping, two hot start points, key lock, scratch with effects, BPM and automatic beat keeping. From a song management perspective, HD MIX delivers simple track search by ID Tag information such as song, artist, album, genre and BPM. Users can create custom play lists while performing, and with the onboard audio inputs, they can even record while performing.
The HD MIX provides full support for MP3, WMA, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC (lossless) formats—enabling DJs to dramatically reduce the volume/weight of the music library they transport—making their work easier. The new HD MIX Station offers track search by artist, album, song, genre, and BPM.
The HD MIX incorporates a professional three-channel mixer with Metering, Gain and EQ controls on each channel. Additional inputs are provided for connecting additional line sources or turntables. Outputs include master XLR balanced as well as unbalanced and booth outputs.
Numark CEO Jack O’Donnell had this to say on the new HD MIX Station, “One of the most powerful mobile DJ performance tools available today, the HD MIX truly enables DJs to gain rapid access to a huge music library, easily create custom music playlists and even record their own performances. This product highlights Numark’s leadership and innovation in the DJ marketplace.�
