The future of DJ-ing is here...Well almost anyway. With the invention of the new IPAD and other tablet PC's there comes an innovative new idea to create a touch-pad type interface that could emulate an entire DJ setup consisting of decks and a mixing console. Imagine being a Mobile DJ who only needs to carry a touch-pad and a flash drive for an entire gig. Introducing the Multitouch Light Table brought to you by gregwerk.com. Right now it is only in its infant stages, but the possibilities are endless. The Multitouch would also be able to work with standalone gear for added versatility. Will this setup actually catch on one day? Or are we barking up the wrong tree entirely? Only time will tell... For now here's an introduction video brought to you by the creators.

NAMM 2012 Video: Numark IDJ-Pro

The new iDJ-Pro for the apple iPad is really starting to gain traction even though its only been announced for a few days! This is yet another reason to get an iPad as the newest venture with Numark has produced a really nice all-in-one system that plugs directly into the DJ controller in order to encase the entire iPad as the centerpiece of the DJ's setup. We were able to get a full rundown video directly from a Numark representative while at the NAMM show in California for you to enjoy.

[Video] Serato DJ with Numark NS7

The Numark NS7 has been out on the market for over 3 years now, but its still one of my favorite controllers to use with Serato as its still the only controller that contains actively spinning platters and a mixing console all in one single unit. During DJ Esco's written review, we loved the build quality, excellent vinyl feel on the platters, and a high quality mixing section to round out the package. The NS7 now gets a free software upgrade from Serato Itch to the new and improved Serato DJ and DJ CXL is in the Numark Studio to give a quick demo video of the new look and features. Check out the performance video and the (throwback) NS7 written review.
