NAMM 2011 - Numark NS6 Announced

Another big hit straight out of NAMM this year is the newest digital media controller from Numark called the NS6. If it looks familiar, that's because it is! It's basically a Numark NS7 controller with touch sensitive jog wheels and an additional two channels/decks at the DJ's disposal. With the touch sensitive jog wheels, four-channel mixer, and four-decks of Serato Itch software control, this unit sure seems like a winner to us. I'm sure the rest of the DJ companies with four-channel-deck controllers are now shaking in their boots. Full press release and product details inside.
