NUMARK DEBUTS MIXTRACK PRO 3 AND MIXTRACK 3 DJ CONTROLLERS AT NAMM

Mon, January 26, 2015


Cumberland, RI USA (January 22, 2015)—Numark (numark.com), the world’s leading innovator of DJ solutions, today announced the introduction of two new DJ controllers to their family of industry-leading DJ solutions, the MIXTRACK PRO 3 and MIXTRACK 3.

 

Designed with the skilled, professionally-aspiring DJ in mind, the new controllers offer a multitude of features and performance attributes that set them above the entry-level class of product, yet they offer extraordinary value and easy transportability.

 

Building on the previous MIXTRACK models and retaining all the features and benefits that made them so incredibly popular, the new models share the same basic platform and boast several performance/feature characteristics that make them particularly satisfying and effective to use. A good example is the class-exclusive 100mm pitch sliders that make it simple to execute extremely fine pitch adjustments, so it’s easy to keep two cuts in beat sync without any drift. The conventional 60mm pitch sliders on competitive units can’t come close to matching the MIXTRACK’s performance in this critical area.

 

Other important features shared by both models:

1.     Dedicated filter knobs for each channel, which provides a level of sophisticated, precise tonal control rarely, if ever, found at these price points.

2.     A multi-function touch strip for dynamic FX control and Strip Search operation

3.     Independent transport controls for greater operational flexibility, and they both utilize metal—not plastic—controls for long-term durability.

4.     Both include Prime Loops remix tool kit for adding loops and samples to live sets

 

Here is a brief listing of the MIXTRACK PRO 3’s and MIXTRACK 3’s important features:

“These two controllers take their design inspiration from no-compromise professional units like our NS7III controller.

He added, “With their extremely high build quality, numerous features and ability to map virtually any DJ software, they set new standards for high performance at an affordable price. We’re excited to offer them.”
