|Launched at bpm 2011 in Birmingham, UK, the Serato DJ Intro software will now be included with select Numark DJ controllers. Numark announces the new collaboration with Serato Audio Research to include the all-new Serato DJ Intro software with Mixdeck, Mixdeck Express, Mixdeck Quad, Mixtrack Pro, and Numark’s latest controller, N4, a four-deck digital DJ controller and mixer.
Having worked together on numerous innovations, Numark and Serato are determined to continue revolutionizing the art of DJing. Their collaborations have produced professional-level controllers that deliver seamless hardware/software integration. The DJ tools include the NS7, NSFX, NS7FX, V7 and NS6 professional DJ controllers, all of which were designed to work seamlessly with Serato software.
Serato DJ Intro software provides DJs with a platform that is solid, intuitive and innovative. As with previous Numark/Serato offerings, Serato DJ Intro will interface with Numark DJ controllers seamlessly, allowing DJs to mix and perform effortlessly, with little or no need to touch their computer’s keyboard or mouse.
Moving forward, DJs who purchase Mixdeck, Mixdeck Express, Mixdeck Quad, Mixtrack Pro and N4 will receive Serato DJ Intro software in the box. DJs who previously purchased Mixdeck, Mixdeck Express, Mixdeck Quad, and Mixtrack Pro will be able to download Serato DJ Intro software for free.
“This collaboration is a win win, for Numark and Serato, but most of all for DJs,” said Chris Roman, Numark Product Manager. “Together, Numark and Serato are now giving all DJs, from beginner to professional, the performance tools they need to advance their craft, innovate, and make the most of new technology.“
Also at BPM 2011, Numark unveiled N4, featuring 4-decks of software control plus a built-in mixer that can be used with or without a computer. N4 is designed for DJs who want powerful capability in a lightweight, portable package. This complete 4-channel controller features large, touch-sensitive platters, 4-decks of software control with loop and effects controls, a built-in USB audio interface and a comprehensive mixer section with EQ, and gain. N4 will come with both Serato DJ Intro software and a 4-deck version of Virtual DJ LE.
The N4 DJ controller with a mixer is built for flexible control of virtually any music source. Its built-in DJ mixer allows DJs to mix any external source including turntables, CD players and MP3 players. DJs are able to instantly switch from controlling 4 decks of software to controlling 2 decks of software plus 2 channels of external source.
With the ability to use time code, N4 sets a new standard for 4-channel DJ controllers in its class. In addition to 4-decks of MIDI software control, N4 gives DJs the ability to use their CD player or turntable to control advanced DJ software by employing turntables with time-coded vinyl or CD players with time-coded CDs.
