Numark Launches New Mixtrack Platinum DJ Controller
Numark has today (1st of August 2016) announced the introduction of its latest DJ controller, the Mixtrack Platinum. This new feature-packed controller comes bundled with Serato DJ software and offers hi-definition LCD displays positioned in the centre of touch-capacitive jog wheels.
The Mixtrack family (Mixtrack 3 and Mixtrack Pro 3) is Numark’s number one selling series of DJ controllers. The company attributes this success to the controllers’ simple, highly-functional design attracting DJs at all levels, from skilled amateurs to the most demanding professionals. They’re designed to be fun, easy-to-use and full-featured, while offering professional build quality at an affordable price. The Mixtrack Platinum extends those attributes by adding hi-definition LCD displays at the centre of each platter, 4-deck capability and gain controls for each channel.
The Mixtrack Platinum’s full-function display screens (showing BPM, track time, pitch position and deck number) makes it possible for DJs to keep their eyes on the controller, not buried in their computer screen, allowing them to better stay connected with their audience and the action on the dancefloor. With independent transport controls, 24-bit audio output, wide-ranging 100mm pitch controls, Serato DJ Intro, multi-function touch strips and 16 back-lit performance pads, Mixtrack Platinum has a lot to offer DJs at all levels.
In addition, it features Numark-exclusive touch-capacitive platters that give DJs the ability to scratch or stop a track simply by touching the top of the platter, while at the same time allowing them to adjust the pitch by manipulating the platter from the side. The touch control is also intelligent and self-correcting, sensing every motion and touch to ensure solid, reliable operation every time. In addition, they’re made from heavy-duty metal, so they stand up to heavy-duty use, night after night.
“The Mixtrack Platinum is the perfect controller for DJs anywhere, from the skilled amateur all the way up to the demanding professional,” said Chris Roman, Senior Product Manager for Numark. He added, “It has every feature DJs need for outstanding performance and instant response. Plus, the LCD readouts and those one-of-a-kind touch-capacitive platters give the DJ instant feedback and ultimate control. This is a fun-to-use, pro-level controller at an incredible value that will be a hit with all DJs.”
The Mixtrack Platinum is due to arrive in the UK soon with a retail price of around £239.
