I'm very impressed with this. My only issue is running it in 4 Deck mode on my 13 inch MBP is almost impossible as I cannot view my track loader because of the diminished size.
Also, the free version it comes with only has 6 audio effects, which is annoying when you're used to having "too many" effects to work with. They are great effects though, and definitely have gotten me through some great sets.
As an experienced dj who doesn't want to hand pioneer $4000 for a set up, this is definitely where it's at.
I just want a coffin case for it though :(
Happy Mixing =D
One of my upfaders is finnicky and will occasionally "dance" down or mute, even when the controller is all the way up. I tried using contact cleaner to fix it to no improvement. May need to replace the upfader myself (about $20), though a bit of a ghetto fix I've rigged is to glue a card aligned against the fader's post as keeping constant pressure to the left on the fader's post seems to solve the issue (for now).
One of my channel's hi knobs initializes to 100% to the right when it should initialize to the middle. I need to turn it all the way to the right, then the left, then back to the middle before I mix.
The 1/4th jack on the front is unreliable. Not an issue since I usually plug into the 1/8th anyway.
Overall, yes I've had some issues but given I've owned this controller for 2.5 years and the minorness of these issues, its still pretty good. Controller's a bit out of date now, you may want an auxillary controller (like a MIDIFighter) to control some extra stuff and maybe do cue drumming or whatever, but if you can find this controller for about $400ish or under, its still a great mid-tier controller, above entry level but maybe not quite where the DDJ-SX or Kontrol S8 or a CDJ setup are in the world. Would still recommend in 2016 if you're willing to pair it up with extra controllers if you want more buttons for cue points or stuff.
EDIT: Review previously complained about Numark's lack of Windows 8 support. I'll leave my original review below for historical reasons, but as of now (Feb 2016), this controller has had Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 support.Read more ›
I ordered a replacement, so hopefully I just had really bad luck...but I have to pay shipping, and I doubt it will be cheap. My advice would be to go to a local store and pick one up, I wish I had.
The reason I am giving the item 3 stars, is that quality control was lacking or build quality wasn't that great for it to have been glitching out from the get go. Should actually be 2 stars for that reason, but other people seem to have had good luck, and the sound quality and controls were great while they lasted. Finally, this is a feature rich mixer at a reasonable price.
