This customer was digging the tracking on the NS6 so much that I decided to film it. Sorry my hands are so shaky…This just scratches the surface (no pun intended) on the NS6. You have got to check this system out. If you are using Serato Live, you can switch to the itch! No more lugging around your crates and 1200s anymore. All you need is an NS6 and you are in there. I’ve checked out more than a few of the itch controllers out there, and I think this one is the best. Mixing is way too easy on this thing…yes…anyone can mix on the NS6. I even taught my girlfriend how to mix on it in 5 minutes, and she doesn’t even play an instrument.
A few of my favorite highlights:
This thing has four decks! You can mix four decks at a time, and access the 3 & 4 deck with the click of a button.
The resolution on the wheel is amazing. At first, I didn’t like a non-moving platter, but once I got used to it, I prefer it way more. I don’t think I could go back now. So accurate…
It has XLR outs and not crappy RCA outs like other units out there. That’s right. Professional XLR balanced outs that you can connect direct to your powered speaker setup
The mixer can run as a passive mixer and not use a computer at all. Yup. You can hook two vinyl turntables (ground included on mixer!) and run it as a regular setup. You can also use your ipod on one of the extra tables as a fail safe in case you run into computer problems. The future of DJ is here and now!
The software is free and you get free upgrades! You can download to multiple computers. If that club you spin at has a house computer rig, you can set it up there and not bring your computer. All you would need is your NS6 and your harddrive.
Headphone jack is 1/4 in. and 1/8 in.
The contour control is awesome on the fader
You can independently assign all 4 decks to the L or R on the fader. Yes…it’s like a hamster switch on steroids.
All of your old Serato Live files will be compatible with Itch. You can transfer over all those que points and all the work you did on your crates…
It’s a real fader, and you can replace and upgrade it.
It’s compact and fairly light, but it is still strong and sturdy and has a metal chasis…some other itch controllers are plastic
