Its not very well built. (Numark - BattlePack)

The Numark battle pack was created for someone who is just starting out being a DJ and learning how to scratch. It was not made for the advanced DJ. So for beginners I highly recommend this package to, they will enjoy it and will want to upgrade within the first year. If you are an advanced DJ do not purchase this, it is very cheap feeling compared to some of other Numarks gear, this was there bottom line gear that they put out a while ago.

It is very easy to use and to understand how to use, being a DJ especially scratching and fading and all of that stuff takes time to understand how to do. You cant just jump right in and start doing it right away without practice. This is a great unit to practice on and learn for beginners.

The knobs aren't very well built though, they will really not last too long if you are harsh to them. You will need to get a much better mixer within the first year if they even make it a year of taking some punishment. I don’t know how much this package is selling for right now, but you will need to be a vinyl junky in order to want to get this package. Because other wise you will want to go with a cd set up or go 100 percent digital. These type of turntables are getting pushed out of the DJ world each year that passes.

If you are in the beginning stages of learning how to scratch and want to work the vinyl then this is a great buy. I say pass the vinyl and go all digital because it is more expensive keeping up with vinyl. Also digital is easier to take around with you for when you start getting booked.

Bad (Numark - Fusion 494)

The Numark Fusion 494 was very expensive when it first came out, I remember it cost right around 100 dollars , at this point I don’t even know why I purchased it. Because it really wasn’t as good as I though it was going to be. I only used it for about 8 months before reselling it, now I am all digital and do all mixing in a computer program. I was never really a fan of the 2 channel mixer with the Fusion 494 either. Everything with this package was built pretty cheap.

It has 2 different loop points on each player and I think 3 stutter starts. Plus all of your basic stuff like pitch range adjustment and built in tap tempo beats per minute counters. This is a cool package for the beginning DJ who is getting into CD scratching and blending but at this point in technology you mine as well go all digital and forget the CD scratching. There really is no point in taking a step back to use CD now. If you are going to get this mine as well just become a vinyl junkie and go retro, it would be way cooler.

In my short time using this, I realized that CD scratching wasn’t for me. This system right here is what made me go all digital and start working with just software. I can say that I am glad that I did, because the world of software is so much more advanced and you can do things with it that you can do with CD turntables and definitely not vinyl turntables.


Do not buy this, just go out and get a good DJ mixing software and start from there. This is pointless now. Stay away from CD turntables. They are out of the game at this point. They where in the game a few years back everyone jumped on them but they are no good now.

worth the money (Numark - NS7FX)

The NS7FX is a motorized controller that will work with just about any DJ software but it comes with one of its own. I really did love the feel of this unit, it had rubber buttons and knobs and was built to last a long time. The price of it was a lot higher than I would have liked to spend but the quality reflected the price. This unit has 2 motorized high torque platters that have a very classic feel to them like real vinyl. You will not need a mouse or a keyboard with this controller as long as you are going to use ITCH software. ITCH software is the software that comes with it and it is perfectly set up to work with this software. Now using it in other software does bring about some issues when not wanting to use the mouse (or touchpad for laptop users).
Setting this controller up with ITCH software was very simple and it was also very simple to use with Scratch Live. But if you used with any other software it could cause many problems if you want to keep the whole “mouse free” approach.
The quality of this controller/interface is great. The audio signals are clean and sound amazing in almost any system. I recommend this unit to anyone who is into the old school vinyl stuff and wan to start to digitalize there set up. This could be the perfect transition to go to digital because it still has that vinyl feel and will let you leave all of those vinyl crates at home.
Make sure you have a fast computer with this interface, you will need at least 2 GB but a fast processor is a must have if you run it on a Windows Computer. There are several driver issues reported when using it with a Windows 7 computer as well. But Numark is usually on top of their driver updates and fix any issues pretty quickly. I was using this unit back in 2011 and I am pretty sure they have fixed any driver issues by now.
