Numark has been pioneering in the mixer department for many years, including the groundbreaking HDCD-1 which was the first DJ playback system with a built-in hard drive. Now the company is giving innovation another crack with the Numark Scratch, a performance-oriented two-channel mixer that promises a versatile array of features that are simple to use and easy to access.
Numark has been in the mixer game for a long time, but now they’re back with the Scratch, an innovative performance-oriented two-channel mixer
A highlight of the Scratch is its six direct access software FX buttons, which let the user access a range of effects, tweakable with timing and intensity controls. Each effect can be triggered with performance-based toggle pads and four additional pads which can trigger hot cues, rolls for buildups, stab beats and sample controls.
Separate looping controls are supplied for each channel, as well as a Low/High-pass filter independent of software allowing it to work effectively with analog turntables. For the price, you also get a full version of Serato DJ Pro with the complete DVS Expansion Pack.
