The modern art of DJing is all about opening up tons of exciting musical possibilities, going well beyond the “two turntables and a microphone” era of spinning tracks and crafting mixes. Today’s top DJs have swapped their bulky crates crammed with heavy vinyl for a compact, lightweight hard drive packed with tunes. The laptop is the new player, and Serato DJ is the software that makes it all happen. But you’ll need more than just a mouse to take command of that sonic starship. American Musical Supply is pleased to offer the Numark NVII – the performance solution for the digital DJ.

It’s all here, including gobs of expressive real-time control. Dual full-color displays with tempo grids. Illuminated controls. Touch-capacitance knobs. Adaptive jog wheels. The integrated USB audio interface. Four Serato DJ playback decks. Sixteen velocity-sensitive pads. Plus, the Numark NVII features an all-new design boasting an uncanny ease of use.

Take advantage of the exclusive Toolroom Artist Packs and take your production and performance skills to the next level.

Make the most of Serato DJ with this outstanding hands-on controller – the Numark NVII. Enjoy real-time access of up to four decks. The center section offers dedicated mixing controls for each deck, including a gain control, volume fader, three-band EQ, FX buttons, bar-graph metering, crossfader assign switch, plus the tone-bending filter control. The capacitance-touch EQ knobs offer multi-mode functionality. Enable Touch FX and simply touching any EQ knob will have an instantaneous effect. Touch and turn for even more EQ options. The Filter provides both low pass and high pass functions from a single knob, and the Filter Roll delivers powerful sweep/loop filter effects.
Up top are the independent Booth and Master level knobs (with Master metering), as well as the microphone/aux tone and gain controls. It’s also here that you’ll find the Beatkeeper display. Down below is the all-important pro-grade replaceable crossfader and the associated crossfader controls, including Contour and Track Start options. Navigating the NVII is easy - all control functions are clearly labeled in white, while functions labeled in red are accessed using the Shift buttons.
Wings of Desire
The Numark NVII features three main control areas. Look at the wing panels on either side of the center section; this is where the action is. Let’s start with the impressive 4.3 inch, full-color displays. Use the two-axis Select/Load knob to scroll through your songs and simply push down to load the track. The updated menu lets you search for tracks by Album, Artist, Song, Key, BPM, and/or Length. Tempo-derived gridlines appear onscreen to provide effortless looping and beat matching. Surrounding buttons change the onscreen display and modify functions such as the pitch fader range.
Next up is the multi-function jog wheel. Use it to scratch [top surface] or shuttle/search [outer edge]. Hold the shift button to search by the first beat of each measure. The jog wheels feature adaptive learning, conforming to your unique performance style. Here you’ll also find access to the onboard FX (effects processing). As with the EQ controls, the FX knobs use a capacitive-touch design. A simple touch, twist, or tweak will have an immediate effect – you can actually “play” the FX as part of your performance. With all the robust improvements to the displays and control surface, the Numark NVII eliminates the need to switch your attention between the controller and your laptop.
By now you’ve noticed the 16 brightly-lit dynamic pads on the Numark NVII DJ Controller. These pads have a variety of easily-accessed functions that can add an amazing amount of creative audio bending. Use them to select or auto-loop hot cues. Choose auto-loops and loop rolls anywhere from 1/8th of a beat to 16 beats long. Play back previously saved custom loops as part of your performance, trigger saved samples at a fixed velocity, or play each pad expressively using real drum pad dynamics. Use the Slicer mode to select and loop slices of audio that you’ve created using the onboard beat grid. The pad functions are independent for each deck, delivering the maximum amount of interactive performance control to make your set shine.
Hook Me Up
The Numark NVII DJ Controller is ready for the bedroom studio, the concert hall, the house party, or the hottest club. A single USB cable (supplied) provides power for the NVII and a two-way audio connection with Serato DJ running on your laptop. Separate booth and main outputs are provided, each with a dedicated pair of RCA output jacks as well as independent level controls. The booth level also controls the headphone volume; both 1/4" and 3.5mm jacks are provided.
An additional set of balanced XLR outputs allows you to connect the Numark NVII directly to the house sound system in any venue. Inputs include a 1/4" microphone jack, plus a pair of stereo RCA aux inputs that are ideal for adding a CD player, MP3 device, or other external audio source.
