Stuff in glass cabinets ain’t too good for video, apart from the fact that you can’t see it in action, it’s all reflecty and really hard to get any decent footage of. So lucky for us, the new Numark/ Serrato DJ controller/software NS7 was up and running for all to see. The NS7 is the first lovechild of the strategic partnership announced earlier this year between DJ hardware specialists Numark and the kings of DJ scratch software Serato. The hardware is used to control the Itch software - Serato Scratch – Itch – geddit? Anyhow, the sensitivity and control of this system is reputed to be top notch and was ably demonstrated by DJ Marcel on the Numark stand. The NS7 is a dual platter direct drive, USB 2.0 MIDI controller and audio interface designed to make the laptop based DJ keep their hands on the decks and away from the mouse. Total integration makes it much more of a tactile and immediate experience, rather than the usual “just checkin my emails� look. NS7 is e3xpected to ship in December 2008 at a UK price of £1199

I'm guessing it would be around $2K, but it may be less as both companies are US based.

ok that looks amazing. i would totally rock that no problem, and i'm a 1200 purist when djing out (with serato of course). only problem is it's numark EWWWW. no numark your motor is still crap compared to any 1200, you shouldn't legally be allowed to compare it.

Not to be a Nay-Sayer but wouldnt it be simpler to just get Serato Scratch with your system than buy one of these? Not to mention far less expensive.

yeah you could do that, but then you have to worry about control vinyls & cd's skipping and getting dirty and overall poor performance with time... this skips all that using MIDI... have one on order now just waiting till feb 2009 to get it!
