The NS7 features two seven-inch motorized, adjustable-torque, aluminum turntable platter controls complete with vinyl, slipmats and 45 RPM adapters. Separating the two turntable decks is a premium DJ mixer with replaceable, digital VCA crossfader and line faders; firm, rubberized knobs; rugged switches and buttons; Strip Search (patent pending) virtual-needle drop controls; and host of other innovative features.
Numark and Serato developed a protocol for communication between NS7 and the computer that sends MIDI data over a single USB cable at more than twice the standard speed. The result is extremely high-resolution control with full MIDI compliance.
NS7 contains a high-quality, 24-bit digital audio interface with mic/line input and headphone and system outputs. A single USB cable carries all audio and control data between NS7 and the computer for simplicity of system configuration and minimal setup time.
The controller carries a U.S. retail price of $1,599.00, and a street price of approximately $1,299.95.
