Yes, the picture we posted earlier this week of the MPC DJ was very much real, and we’ve got a full look at what the prototype unit looks like. Additionally, we took a quick look at the brand new Numark 4Trak controller, designed to be Numark’s flagship Traktor controller, in response to users who were dissapointed with the NS6/7 mappings for Native Instrument’s DJ software.
So it looks like the MPC DJ isn’t quite ready for prime time, but they’re most certainly looking for feedback. What are your thoughts on it? If you were a product designer, what would you do?
Here’s the complete stats on the Numark 4Trak:
