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
