Numark has introduced the NDX900 DJ controller and MP3/CD/USB player at the 2011 Summer Namm Show in Nashville
Here’s what they have to say about it:
The NDX900 DJ controller is capable of mixing music from virtually any digital source including a computer, audio CDs, MP3 CDs and even USB flash drives. NDX900 has a layout that is recognizable to DJs everywhere with a large, seven-inch touch-sensitive illuminated platter, smooth, frontloading CD drive, top-facing USB DJ controller port, powerful remixing, effects control, scratching, looping, and sampling capabilities, all in a chassis that has a solid feel and professional look. NDX900’s Beat-synced DSP effects include chop, echo, filter, flanger, pan, and phaser with full control of the effects blend.
NDX900′s built-in audio interface works plug-and-play, allowing DJs to seamlessly integrate NDX900 with practically any computer and control virtually any DJ software. No drivers or external sound cards are required. With two NDX900s and a mixer of choice, DJs have a powerful and versatile digital DJ rig.
NDX900 includes Traktor LE 2 DJ Software and comes premapped for use with a variety of DJ software including Virtual DJ and Traktor 2 Pro, and is compatible with almost any MIDI compatible DJ software.
