New budget controller adds LCD displays, 24-bit sound and four-deck capabilities
Numark has annouced a new addition to its Mixtrack range of affordable DJ controllers, Mixtrack Platinum.
Mixtrack Platinum boasts a broadly similar feature set to last year's Mixtrack 3 and Mixtrack Pro 3, but new additions to the spec sheet include hi-res LCD displays on each jogwheel to show BPM, track time and pitch, as well as a new "4-deck" mode. The new unit also offers 24-bit DSP and upgraded touch-capacitive platters, and now ships with Serato DJ LE rather than Virtual DJ LE.
Like the previous models it features 16 multi-purpose pads and still includes a Prime Loops remix tool kit, and like the Mixtrack Pro 3 (but not the Mixtrack 3) incorporates an audio interface with 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch headphone connections.
The Mixtrack Platinum is available now, priced £239 (or $299 in the US). For full details, see the Numark website.
