This year’s NAMM was alight with Numark‘s Orbit wireless hand-held controller. We were all over it with an exclusive first play. It’s a smart little device aimed at giving a little more freedom to DJs who want a performance piece, or just a little multipurpose box of tricks to add a little extra into their setups. Or it’s a total toy that only fake wannabes would ever use apparently. Whatever your viewpoint or use, the Numark Orbit finally about to hit the streets — one has arrived at the worxlab, and in true online blog style, I decided to unbox it… and take pictures… sorry I couldn’t resist.
There is an ulterior motive besides the social media sharing and subsequent shameless web traffic. As it’s such an unusual piece, I want to get some idea of what you want to know about it. We can make the usual observations about quality etc, but the function is a different matter.
Do you have a specific use in mind for it? And what would you like to see in the review? Do you have any specific questions that haven’t been answered before? We are planning am extensive detailed review of this so the more questions the merrier.
One last thing — the Simple Simon wisecrack and many others have been done to death, and frankly aren’t even relevant or funny. So just don’t.
