NS7FX: The Power Of The Computer, The Feel Of Vinyl
The power and flexibility of a computer-based DJ system or the feel of real vinyl decks? The endless possibilities of software DJing or the unmatched control of real turntables? A hard decision, we know. The friendly folks at Numark must've felt the same way because they designed the NS7FX in collaboration with Serato to represent the pinnacle of digital DJ performance.
The NS7FX combines a premium mixer with two motorized, adjustable-torque turntables, real vinyl, and a professional audio interface to deliver a complete performance solution that will satisfy the most hardcore turntablist.
NS7FX also includes powerful effects controls for hands-on manipulation of the wide range of effects built into the included Serato ITCH software. For seamless integration with Serato ITCH, the NS7FX features premium faders, knobs, buttons, and the new Strip Search virtual needle-drop control and exchanges turntable and control information with your Mac or PC at more than ten times standard MIDI resolution. If you need a rock-solid hardware/software system that feels and as good as it looks, the NS7FX is your new best friend.
You want the feel of real decks and vinyl. You want the power and flexibility of a computer-based DJ system. You need the NS7FX.
Push any pre-conceived notions about DJ controllers from your mind, the NS7FX blows them out of the water, anyways. For starters, the two seven-inch, motorized, high-torque aluminum turntable platters feature “modern” and “classic” settings that model the feel you prefer. Seven-inch, real vinyl records with 45RPM adapters sit on real slipmats
. There's no simulation here - NS7 is the real deal.
Solid, rugged, rubberized buttons and knobs compliment a high precision, replaceable CP-PRO crossfader and D-TYPE line faders for an unquestionably high-quality feel. It's only natural that Numark's finest crossfader is a component of their finest controller. They selected high-performance, D-Type digital-VCA line faders for their rugged, long-life performance. Like the crossfader, the line faders are replaceable. The crossfader offers contour adjust and reverse adjustment, enabling you to customize its operation.
Any DJ who's worked with a computer knows that when it comes to DJing, a mouse and keyboard just don't cut it. The NS7FX renders ITCH software perfectly simple to operate, with its click knob and large, backlit buttons navigating though your music library. You'll spend less time looking at the screen and more time keeping the floor bumpin' thanks to the visual feedback you get from NS7FX's high-quality LEDs and hands-on controls.
In keeping with the philosophy of “simple is better,” Numark built the NS7FX with onboard audio outputs so it's the only thing you need to connect to the PA system or powered speakers. You get a variety of ins and outs with a front panel that contains a mic input, RCA line input, and both 1/4" and 1/8" headphone outputs with volume control and outputs 24-bit, 44.1 kHz digital audio to the sound system on XLRs and RCAs.
The NS7FX provides extremely high-precision, low-latency control by sending control information over USB at more than ten times the standard MIDI rate.
There's really nothing like dropping the needle on a record for quickly locating a point in the track. Numark took that idea and developed their own modern take on it with "Strip Search," the unique virtual-needle-drop touch strip. You can locate a point instantly within the track using the on-screen waveform and Strip Search.
Other innovations include: hot-cue-assign buttons on each deck to digitally mark your cues on the track, an extensive Serato-style loop section on each deck for creative remix capabilities and 100mm, smooth, stiff pitch sliders for beat matching.
It's clear that Numark took extraordinary care in selecting the components of the NS7FX's audio signal chain. It contains a host of professional audio connectors and a multichannel, 24-bit USB digital-audio interface. The high-definition post-mix analog audio output features a minimized circuit path containing only one audiophile-grade bipolar capacitor. This optimized design maximizes phase coherence, ensuring that audio is tight and punchy.
Serato Itch Software
Serato ITCH is already familiar if you use Scratch LIVE. The program builds on Scratch LIVE's popularity and adds some key, new features.
Firstly, ITCH doesn't require a timecode interface, so using the system can be as easy as plugging your NS7FX into your computer (sorta goes back to that whole “simplicity” thing we were yapping about earlier). Without timecode, there's no need to worry about needles skipping or vinyl wearing out. You can load your Scratch LIVE crates, loops, presets, and cue points seamlessly in ITCH. NS7FX also works with most other MIDI DJ software and supports iTunes.
Secondly, ITCH handles audio processing and mixing including channel fading, EQ, crossfading and track trim are processed for outstanding control and management of your tracks, ease of recording your set, clip-proof gain management, and BPM calculation using the power of your computer's processor.
Thirdly, Serato's unique color waveforms provide an easy identification of sound and changes in the track. ITCH can set and store cue-points. It offers three-range pitch control: +/-8%, +/-16%, and +/-50% with Key Lock for manipulation of pitch and tempo independently.
And finally, ITCH has library management tools for backup and restoring your music. Advanced input and mix recording capabilities include recording your mix or just the aux input for sampling. The software supports AIFF, WAV, MP3, and AAC audio files.
Of course, that's not all that makes ITCH such a powerful DJ tool, there's plenty more where that came from, but we'd be here all day if you asked us to list everything. And we don't want you to be late to your set, you know?
