The Numark NS7 was and still is a huge hit amongst DJ's who want the feel of good old fashioned vinyl mixed in with the convenience of a Digital DJ Controller. At this year's NAMM, Numark has announced the successor to its super successful controller called the NS7 II. The NS7 II has the same vinyl top actively spinning motorized platters found on the original NS7 along with two extra channels of control, a standalone mixer function, and 16 performance pads that will all work in perfect harmony with the new Serato DJ software.

Sporting the same 16-performance pad layout of current Serato DJ flagship controller the Pioneer DDJ-SX; it seems that the Numark NS7 II is aimed towards taking the top-honors for the best DJ controller to use on a Serato DJ platform. These 16 multi-color backlit performance pads were taken directly from the Akai MPC line so you know you are getting top-quality drumming style buttons to mash on while performing. The NS7 II pads will be used for Hotcues, Samples, Loop Roll, and Slicer functions of Serato DJ.

The Motorized Platters on the NS7 has finally found its way to a true four-deck DJ controller. I, for one, asked Numark to do this back when they released the NS6, but I guess it wasn't quite ready yet for the market. I'm sure there are lots of DJ's out there that really want that true vinyl and spinning platter feel of original turntables even on a DJ controller, and the NS7 II makes this possible while also providing four decks of control and the same durable and mostly-metal build quality of the original Numark NS7.

Another really cool and innovative feature on the NS7 II is the inclusion of touch sensitive knobs for EQ's. Yes, you read right... the EQ knobs are touch sensitive so that they can also be used as MIDI buttons to kill or add EQ's throughout playback.

There is no word yet on the price or release date of the NS7, but as soon as we know more information from the NAMM 2013 showroom floor, we'll let you know. We'll also be 100000% sure to get one for a full out Video review. Stay Tuned!
