Numark Introduce V7 – The Turntable, Evolved
The latest new piece of DJ gear to come from Numark has been unveiled as the V7, a motorised turntable software controller, developed in strategic partnership with software developer Serato. The V7 is based around the acclaimed adjustable torque, motorised-platter design from Numark's flagship NS7 and delivers a host of professional features including real vinyl and a slipmat that analog turntablists will love, ultra-precise turntable control, effects controls, mouse-less library navigation, and Strip Search virtual-needle drop.
The V7’s link function enables DJs to combine one or two V7s with their favorite mixer and their Mac or PC for a completely customisable, totally seamless performance environment. V7 offers the modern DJ a solution to the problems of CD players skipping and vinyl and needles wearing out, while retaining the ‘hands on’ feel of a hardware player.
The V7 contains a full compliment of effects controls, which enable DJs to access the same effects as in Numark’s NSFX. The V7 includes a professional 24-bit audio interface that supports dual decks. It is outfitted with premium faders, knobs and buttons including controls for selecting tracks and blending audio effects in the included Serato ITCH software. This motorised turntable controller employs the proven, cutting-edge control technology pioneered by Numark in the NS7, in which turntable and control information is exchanged at more than ten times standard MIDI resolution. This massive data stream creates virtually latency-free control however, because V7’s communication is based upon MIDI, it is MIDI compatible, and therefore DJs can use it with a variety of MIDI software.
Derived from Numark’s popular TTX professional turntable, the V7’s powerful, direct-drive turntable motor delivers 12-inch-platter feel on a more-manageable seven inch platter with high-torque “modern” and low-torque “classic” feel settings. Numark’s exclusive Strip Search virtual needle-drop control and complete effects controls for audio manipulation empower DJs’ creativity, and the V7’s rugged, all-metal construction with premium knobs and buttons delivers the look and feel that professionals demand.
DJs will find that they virtually never need to touch their mouse when performing or preparing sets with the V7. Extensive track-access, loop and cue controls keep the DJ’s hands and eyes away from the computer. “V7 melds traditional vinyl feel and pristine sound quality with minimal mouse and monitor software control in a rock-solid performance turntable controller,” commented Chris Roman, Product Development Manager for Numark.
The V7 will be available from your local Numark stockist soon, with many stores already offering pre-order to allow customers to reserve the first units to arrive.
