iM1 Mixer

NUMARK iM1 MIXER WITH DOCK FOR iPod AVAILABLE NOW
Innovative Mixer Allows DJs to Record Their Sets to iPod or Play from iPod

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 13, 2011) – Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of DJ
technology, introduces the iM1 DJ mixer, a professional 2-channel DJ mixer with
dock for iPod. Numark will showcase the iM1 at the 2011 Winter NAMM Show in
Anaheim, CA, Booth #6400, January 13 – 16, 2011.

Numark's iM1 packs a wide variety of input types into a compact package. You can
plug in turntables, CD players, line-level music sources and a microphone to the iM1,
which also includes a dock for iPod that allows you to play from, or record to, an
iPod. Set the levels with trim and line faders, and tailor the high and low frequencies
with the rotary EQs on each channel. Cue up tracks using the mini-crossfader and
headphone output, and then perform the mix through the master outputs with the
smooth, replaceable crossfader. Quickly create professional-quality mix-tapes to
pass off to clubs and fans by recording your DJ performances directly to an iPod
within the built-in dock. M1 has all the features you need to get maximum
performance out of minimum space.

“A good mixer is at the heart of every great DJ setup,” said Chris Roman, Product
Development Manager, Numark. “With iM1, Numark gives DJs a solid, professional
mixer that can record directly to their iPod without compromise.”

The iM1 mixer will be available in early 2011 from musical instrument and DJ
retailers with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $229.00 and an estimated
street price of $129.00.

iM9 Mixer

NUMARK RELEASES iM9 MIXER WITH DIGITAL EFFECTS and
DOCK for iPOD
Feature-packed DJ Mixer With Effects Allows DJs to Record Sets to iPod or Play
from iPod

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 13, 2011) – Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of DJ
technology, introduces the iM9, a professional-grade DJ mixer with integrated effects
and a dock for iPod. Numark will showcase the iM9 at the 2011 Winter NAMM Show
in Anaheim, CA, Booth #6400, January 13 – 16, 2011.

Numark’s new four-channel iM9 DJ mixer is designed for creating vibrant, engaging
DJ performances. With the iM9, DJs can mix vinyl, CDs, iPod, microphones or any
line-level audio source. Integrated BeatKeeper™ technology automatically detects a
song's BPM, allowing for seamless crossfades from track to track. Sync Lock
ensures that once the beat is locked in between two sources, it’s never lost.

DJs need complete control over how the music sounds and the iM9 mixer delivers
that control, no matter the source. With the iM9, DJs can shape the music as needed
thanks to dedicated three-band EQ controls for every channel or create on-the-fly
remixes and stunning song transitions by engaging iM9's high-quality, beat synced
effects. This level of control is complimented by a pro-grade crossfader, knobs and
LEDs.

The unique digital effects processing section of the iM9 brings to your performance
an easy new way of applying beat synchronized effects - perfectly. First the BPM is
automatically and accurately tracked though the iM9’s built in Beatkeeper technology.
This constantly updated BPM serves as the basis for 10 time division preset buttons,
which allow the DJ to instantly change the pulse – from quarter note to eighth or
sixteenth note, for example – upon which the onboard effects are based. The result is
effects that are always in time with the music. Any of the 10 different digital effects
can be manipulated and applied to any channel including the iPod or the crossfader
or main output.

In addition, DJs can incorporate a vocalist or pump-up the audience with the
dedicated microphone channel with XLR input, independent gain control and EQ. A
second quarter-inch mic input is included for additional. DJs can even record their
performances directly to an iPod, thanks to the iM9’s dock for iPod. Housed in a
sturdy metal enclosure, iM9 is designed to withstand the most raucous performances
and still make the next night's gig. DJs with some distance between the booth and
the floor will appreciate iM9’s dedicated booth output and adjustment for previewing
that puts them right on the dance floor without literally being there. iM9 is ideal for use
in clubs or by mobile DJs or just about any DJ using turntables, CDs or MP3s.

“iM9 is a rock-solid mixer ” said Chris Roman, Product Development Manager,
Numark. “With iM9, Numark gives DJs a gig-worthy, professional mixer with effects
that can record directly to their iPod without compromise.”

The iM9 mixer is available now from musical instrument and DJ retailers with a
Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $499.00 and an estimated street price of
$299.95.
