Perfect DJ Controller For Beginners, Or for Anybody
Oisin Brenock, 04.09.2015
I had done my research for some time with dj conrollers and was going to go with the Pionner DDJ SB, this was a bit pricey at 234 euro. I then checked out the Numark Mixtrack Quad, for 237 euro. I then discovered this gem, for 203 euro, with Serato DJ Intro, LED metres, 100mm pitch sliders. It was a steal.
Ok, First off the controller came to me in Ireland in about 4 days. Perfect. On opening the well secured box I was greeted to the Numark box. The dj controller inside well packaged with a standard USB Bus cable which is of ample length (about a meter), a couple of papers, a card for registering your controller with Serato DJ Intro, and an instruction manual.
You must register the controller with Seato to get it to work. You have to use an ID number to register (this number starts with (21). BEWARE, this is printed ON the Numark box, I threw my box out and had to retrieve it to get the number.
Once i set it all up, I imported my music and had a quick go to get used to the controller. The metal jog wheels feel very nice, 100mm pitch sliders (quite rare on budget controllers), LED meters for Master Output only (again very rare), the knobs feel secure and reactive. All the buttons, sliders and knobs are great.
The headphone output takes both 3.5 and 6mm inputs, the volume is quite loud but obviously can be adjusted. Audio output consists of basic RCA, which sound very very nice.
Overall you cant go wrong with this controller, Perfect size, sounds great, looks great, and most importantly, performs great. I, being a beginner would highly highly recommend this controller, for beginners. At 200 euro you must must must get this little-ish gem!
I bought this controller for mixing at home and when i mobile DJ. I am over the moon with my purchase. The first thing i really like is the ease of setup. This controller is literally plug and play. The black casing and red LED's are a great stylish contrast especially in low light. The controller itself is great to use and Serato is a very good entry level software. I prefer using Virtual DJ or Traktor but each to their own. The long throw pitch sliders on this unit are exceptional. The jog wheels are fairly big and the touch sensitivity is very good. I really like the cross fader and pad buttons on this unit also. The previous model had the pads on top of the jog wheels but i believe they are in the right place now. The knobs are a little bit on the small side but nothing to worry about. Overall i would highly recommend this controller for any person starting out as a DJ or for a quick and easy small venue install. It's light weight, very portable, low maintenance and reliable.
