OK everyone just calm down for a moment. Take a deep breath and change your underwear after hearing and seeing the cavalcade of Serato DJ related news. We have to now turn our attention to existing ITCH and DJ Intro product owners, and probably for the most part that’s Numark’s extensive customer base.
It’s late, and this is a very simple message from Numark:
NUMARK ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR ALL-NEW SERATO DJ SOFTWARE IN THE WORLD’S LEADING PROFESSIONAL
The leading manufacturer of DJ controllers works with Serato to provide updates to NS6, NS7 and V7, and to make available upgrades to an entire family of
Serato DJ Intro controllers.
Cumberland, R.I. (Oct. 3, 2012) – Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of DJ technology, announces a collaboration with Serato, the worldwide innovator in digital DJ software, to include their new Serato DJ software with select Numark controllers.
For more than 20 years, Numark has set a pace in the world of digital DJing that no competitor has been able to match, empowering DJs with cutting-edge controllers that continually advance the art form. A deep and long-standing partnership with Serato was established more than 6 years ago, and has resulted in an entire range of professional controllers that have eliminated the line between hardware and software. The NS7, V7, and NS6 controllers define the top tier of DJ performance, reigning as the go-to controllers for DJing and setting the standard by which all other controllers are judged.
Building upon that legacy of partnership and innovation, Numark is proud to announce that the acclaimed Serato controllers, NS7, V7, and NS6, will all support Serato DJ, the most advanced DJ software ever created. Additionally, any Numark DJ who already owns an NS7, V7, or NS6, will be eligible for a free update to Serato DJ. Owners of Numark’s controllers that are compatible with Serato’s DJ Intro software will also be eligible to upgrade to Serato DJ for $199.
“I can’t tell you how excited we are about Serato DJ,” said Chris Roman, Product Manager, Numark. Our professional NS6, NS7 and V7 customers will be able to take advantage of a whole new set of creative tools, and the hundreds of thousands of Serato DJ Intro users who own our controllers will be able to easily upgrade to the most advanced DJ software ever created.”
Serato DJ includes a wide range of all-new features and capabilities, including stunning new effects powered by iZotope, ultra-flexible and intuitive MIDI mapping, the ability to set and trigger up to eight cue points, a totally refreshed user interface, four-deck mixing, and more.
Beginning in December, DJs who own the following Numark controllers can upgrade to Serato DJ, and for a limited time this will also include a license for the powerful Serato Video plug-in: Mixtrack Pro, N4, Mixdeck, Mixdeck Express, and Mixdeck Quad. NS6 will begin shipping with Serato DJ in early Q1 2013, with NS7 and V7 to follow shortly thereafter.
