Numark Mixdeck – Review (1)
6 weeks and two gigs later, I’m ready to write my first review of the Numark Mixdeck.
While I was researching DJ controllers, I was looking for a sturdy yet affordable, all-in-one system that can handle multiple audio sources. Fortunately, the Mixdeck does just that – plays CD/MP3 Discs, USB drives, Auxiliary inputs…even has an iPod dock.
As a software controller, the Mixdeck works very well. I wish it worked better with Traktor Pro, and Traktor LE (which ships with the Mixdeck) is a little too limited for me. Fortunately, it works with Virtual DJ. With a few extra control assignments here and there, you have a near-perfect Virtual DJ controller!
A lot of the reviews I read prior to purchasing the Mixdeck questioned its sturdiness. I think the Mixdeck is pretty solid and reliable. I DJ’ed nearly 7 hrs straight a couple weeks ago, with no problems. Of course, it is always advisable to get casing for your equipment, and Odyssey makes one specifically for the Mixdeck.
