Numark's Mixtrack Quad is here to provide beginner and mobile DJs with more complexity in their mixes than any other controller in its class, backed up by the immediate visual feedback to keep it all running smoothly.
The Mixtrack Quad features 4 channels of software control, 16 multi-color drum pads, and color-customizable dual-zone platters that integrate seamlessly with your laptop and place a fully interactive mixing experience at your fingertips.
Numark's Mixtrack Quad is the only four-channel controller in its class to have dedicated mixing controls for all four decks. The low-profile platters are dual-zone and touch-activated, allowing DJs to effortlessly stop, scratch, and pitch-bend tracks.
We included Virtual DJ LE software and installed 16 dedicated effects controls to the control surface to manipulate flanger, phaser, echo, and more. Mixtrack Quad is class-compliant, powered by a USB connection to your computer, and also has built-in audio for simple setup and configuration.
Top Customer Reviews
What I really liked:
1. I have never really used one of these rigs, but within 30 minutes of opening the box I had the Virtual DJ LE software installed on my Mac and was piping tunes and looping over the stereo in my office. This is a very low initial barrier to entry.
2. The controls are well lighted and laid out. The ability to configure the colors for the lighting is important to me because my color vision is very poor (red green color BLIND).
3. It is solid enough to be laid on the table and stay there when in use, but not unnecessarily big or heavy just for the sake of it. Sounds funny, but a lot of gear is heavy and big for marketing purposes ("this is PRO gear"), not for function.
4. RCA line level audio outputs that can interface to amateur audio.
5. Being a Mac user, I really appreciate the integration with iTunes music library on my Mac. As soon as started VDJLE, my tunes were all available. Sweet!
6. Four channels. If you are slow on the buttons as I am, then you will appreciate that having the ability to pre-cue four songs is a lot better than just two. If you start to fall behind the power curve, you still have a couple songs to get back on track vs. the pipe running dry after the next song. I know this seems like a "wimp" thing, but I think it is a huge help, especially if you have other DJ duties to execute in parallel with running the tunes.
Overall, I really like this new musical instrument. I say this because although it makes DJ'ing a lot more accessible, it does require one to practice and learn in order to really be effective. That is, if you don't play the violin and someone hands you a nice one and says "play!", if you are like most of us you won't get too far along with that. This is lower confrontation level than a violin, but it is still requires that you learn about tempo, pitch and have a good feel for the songs you are queuing up. Nothing bad about that, though!
I highly recommend.
1) Everything is backlit on this one. The color coding on the pads make it very easy to know what you're doing without even looking at the computer screen. Pads aren't color coded on the mixtrack pro 2
2) Serato DJ intro (which i think is more user-friendly than the included virtual DJ LE - but that's just a preference) now supports this controller with all four channels. Switching between four deck control and 2 deck control is as easy as one click on the software. Set up was very easy . Took me about 10 mins from unboxing to playing tunes. Serato DJ intro is a free download from the Serato site.
3) I'm hoping once my DJ skills improve I'll be able to use the other extra channels to remix songs and make mashups. In a way this controller is future proof.
Paired with Serato DJ intro this controller has provided lots of fun for me. I got the hang of all the controls in about 45 minutes and now i'm just working on improving my mixing and scratching skills (yes you can deff scratch on this controller, although i'm not that great on it, yet :P). If you're thinking of getting this or the Mixtrack Pro 2 get this instead. 2 extra channels and the backlit make for a much better DJ Deck.
First, let me say I am not a DJ. But this controller makes it so easy... and it has so many functions that suddenly I felt I was the biggest DJ ever!
Let me tell you how it works: take it out of the box. Install the Virtual DJ LE in your computer. Connect the controller through the USB cable. That's it! It took me less than 20 minutes to understand how the software works and how the three pieces (controller, computer and software) work together... but as soon as I started getting the feel of it, it all started to make sense. I'd say anyone can use this. It is so intuitive and logical, there is almost no learning curve.
I loved the placing of all the different controls. They are very easy to understand and quick to respond. I think, there may be other DJ software available... but for me (clearly a starter) it helped me fully understand you can go very far if you take the time to exploit all this controller has to offer. The loops and samples are very easy to create and all the effects sound great. The controller itself looks durable enough. The buttons will stand thousands of pushes. The turntables have a great feel. It is tempting to use it too much.
The lights did distract me a little, but it is clear to me why they are there - so they actually are plus! and the fact that you can customize them at your convenience is amazing - and very easy to do.
In a nutshell, Numark usually makes great products (I do own one of their turntables - and I like it very much), so this controller did not disappoint. In fact, I got the feeling that Numark really listened to the DJ's needs when making this controller.
