The Numark Mixtrack Quad Pro DJ controller has just been announced and is on its way to this week's Musikmesse 2013 show in Frankfurt Germany for all to see. The Mixtrack Quad is the 4-deck version of the newly released (and reviewed) Mixtrack Pro II Digital DJ controller. With the Mixtrack Quad, the user gets two additional decks/channels to mix with, multi-colored LED's on the performance pads/jog wheels, and even better construction for added durability.

We reviewed the Mixtrack Pro II which is the basis for the Numark Mixtrack Quad, so head on over to our review (

found here

), so you can get an idea of what to expect on the Mixtrack Quad. One of the main differences between the Mixtrack Pro II and the Mixtrack Quad is the software offerings. The Mixtrack Pro II comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro and can be upgraded to the full Serato DJ to take advantage of additional features. Since the Mixdeck Quad is a four-deck controller straight out of the box, Numark decided to use a four-deck version of Virtual DJ LE so that users can use all four decks without purchasing an additional software upgrade.

The Numark Mixtrack Quad now has multi-color backlit indicators for the 16 performance pads which probably identify which "Mode" the pads are in or which deck they belong to. The jog wheels now also have multi-colored rotating LED indicators which will let the user know which of the four Virtual DJ decks they are currently controlling. On the screen in Virtual DJ, the four decks each have their own color which will match the color of the jog wheel in use. There are reports that there will be better construction with better materials used, but from the early release pictures I can't quite verify those claims until we get an official press release of some sort.

There are no additional inputs and outputs besides the standard headphone jack, microphone, and RCA outputs for the master speakers. The unit will also be fully powered via USB as there is no power adapter outlet for additional power supplies. On a side note, The Reloop Terminal Mix 4 is probably the only other four-deck DJ controller that works via USB power only...

The price of the Mixtrack Quad will be $349 at retail and you can bet your bottom dollar that we'll have one in the DJbooth.net Lab for a full review (and perhaps another giveaway) so keep it locked!
