Numark has announced the introduction of two new DJ controllers to their family of industry-leading DJ solutions, the MIXTRACK PRO 3 and MIXTRACK 3. Here is their press release with the details:
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:
MIXTRACK PRO 3: All-in-one Controller Solution for Serato DJ
MIXTRACK 3: All-in-one controller solution for Virtual DJ. Similar to the PRO 3 but it includes Virtual DJ LE 8 and it doesn't have the audio interface with ¼' and 1/8" headphone connections:
"These two controllers take their design inspiration from no-compromise professional units like our NS7III controller. The MIXTRACK PRO 3 and MIXTRACK 3 are performance-driven designs, but with a sharp eye on value," said Numark Senior Product Manager Chris Roman. 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."
Pricing and Availability:
MIXTRACK PRO 3 and MIXTRACK 3 will have U.S. retail pricing of $299 and $199 respectively. Both will be available at the end of the 1st Quarter 2015.
