Numark has announced two new entry-level controllers, the two-channel ProFX and the four-channel Platinum FX.
The Platinum FX features the ability to switch control to deck three and four, as well as controlling decks one and two. It also features six-inch jogs with on-jog displays that tell you time remaining, bpm, platter position and potch adjustment. There are eight performance pads per channel with four modes including Cue, AutoLoop, Sample and FaderCuts, which mimics scratching crossfader techniques.
Akai are making strides in the DJ world with two new controllers — the AFX and AMX — for Serato DJ. The two new controllers add extensive hands-on controls to a variety of DJ set-ups ranging from Serato NoiseMap™ Control Vinyl (DVS), minimalist controllers, HID-capable CD transports, and more.
