Same Day Music is an
authorized Numark dealer
At the heart of the matter, a DJ is a guy/gal who blends different kinds of music sources. Sometimes that source is a CD, sometimes it's an iPod or a USB flash driver or even an analog player. Any way you slice (cut or scratch) it, the performing DJ needs a system that can handle, well, everything. Numark's MIXDECK is that system. It confidently accepts whatever audio type you throw at it, be it CDs, MP3 CDs, USB flash drives, an iPod, your computer, or other analog players. This performance station has the traditional two-decks-and-a-mixer layout you're used to, but that's where time-honored DJ tradition meets Numark innovation.
The MIXDECK has two large, touch-sensitive illuminated platters and controls for cueing and scratching your music. Each smooth, fast, reliable, slot-loading drive works with both CDs and MP3 CDs. Need to access your vast MP3 collection but don't want to lug around a laptop computer? MIXDECK says, "no problem! I eat USB flash drives (one on each deck) for breakfast!"
"But I want
to use my laptop," you say, "can the MIXDECK be used as a software controller?" We're glad you asked. Connect the MIXDECK to your Mac or PC with a single USB cable and you can seamlessly control the music on your computer. MIXDECK's MIDI communication enables you to easily map virtually any DJ software for direct connection from your fingers to software.
The connection can also be used to receive two stereo audio channels from your computer, allowing you to mix software audio with CD tracks.
Lastly, (but not least...ly) MIXDECK also has an integrated Universal iPod Dock so you can play tracks directly from your iPod and record your set into the popular portable music device. MIXDECK has a dedicated iPod fader, physical transport and menu controls, and click knob so you won't have to touch the iPod once it's docked.
MIXDECK has a full-featured mixer built in. Each input channel has its own gain and three-band EQ/rotary kills (+12dB/ -INF). The mixer channels control the audio from MIXDECK's onboard players, incoming audio from your computer, or external sources such as turntables, MP3s players and more. MIXDECK has two sets of stereo, switchable phono/line inputs for external sources. MIXDECK's replacable crossfader has switchable slope and reverse so you can customize its performance based on your preferences.
You can work the room thanks to MIXDECK's 1/4-inch mic input with its own gain and +/-15dB high and low EQ. There's also a complete cueing section with dual 1/8 and 1/4-inch headphone outputs, dedicated cue gain, and mini-crossfader control. You can keep an eye on your master output levels with MIXDECK's dual-color stereo LED meters.
MIXDECK has a flexible output section too, with balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA stereo Main outputs, as well as Booth and Record outs for sending your mix to different locations and systems including recording to your iPod. There's also a direct stereo output from each deck for use with timecode control interfaces including Serato Scratch LIVE software or external effects processors.
We know you, you're the kind of DJ that wants their platters to feel
good too, right? Well, Numark does too and that's why these advanced platters are touch-sensitive for superb accuracy and smooth control whether your reading discs, flash drives or controlling software. The platters' outer rings illuminate for visual indication of deck performance and mode. Thanks to their independent start and stop-time controls on each deck, you can adjust MIXDECK's players to perform just like those old trusty vinyl turntables.
Effects? How 'bout fully adjustable; chop, echo, filter, flanger, pan, and phaser. Sound good? Numark put them on both decks so you can add flavor to your performances with these integrated, beat-synced DSP effects.
MIXDECK contains a set of beat and pitch tools that will help you with beat matching and harmonic mixing. Start playing a track and MIXDECK automatically analyzes its BPM (tempo), and displays it on the screen. There's also a Tap tempo button for manual BPM entry and you can alter the track's BPM by +/-6, 12, 25, and 100% using the pitch fader. For each of those ranges, you can also engage Key Lock, which holds the pitch (key) of the track while you independently manipulate its BPM. There's also a set of pitch-bend buttons on each track for quick tweaks.
Real Time Remixing
MIXDECK gives you a complete range of remixing tools for on-the-fly creativity, including seamless looping on a set of easy-to-understand controls, sampling, and easily accessible hot cues. Numark's familiar Bleep/Reverse gives you the ability to keep time moving forward while you cut or reverse the track.
You can play tracks from discs in single-track, continuous, and programmable playback modes for flexible performance. Fader Start enables MIXDECK to start playing the track you have cued up when you move the crossfader for effortless transitions. You can also use Fader Start with compatible CD players connected to MIXDECK's inputs.
Let's face it, most of the clubs, party's and events aren't very well lit. It may seem like a small thing but Numark knows different, that's why they built MIXDECK with two large, backlit displays for keeping tabs on each deck even in poorly lit conditions. You can monitor BPM, CD and MP3 text tags, navigate folders, and keep an eye on effect status on these big, bright screens.
MIXDECK gives you the ability to perform, mix, remix, and record with virtually any popular music media. Whether you play parties, clubs, events, or in a group, MIXDECK gives you the freedom to DJ all in one unit, with the flexibility to add on and expand as much as you like.
