The Rediscovery Centre will be running a series workshops on bees in libraries throughout the Dublin, Louth, Kildare and Carlow regions during the summer months. Just when you thought 2 channels were more than enough, along come 2 more to throw a massive spanner in the works, and at the same time create an all new way to make people want to chuck away their last expensive shiny just so they can hang with the cool kids. Most of the big boys have already put out their own take on the 4 channel controller in the last 12 months. What set the NS7 apart from the competition was the stellar build, and that’s been carried on to the NS6. Physically, it falls somewhere in-between its nearest rivals – smaller in all ways than the Pioneer DDJ-T1, bigger than the Denon MC-6000 and similar to the NI Kontrol S4.
So overall, the NS6 is a beast – a smaller and lighter beast than the NS7, but a beast nonetheless.
Note to Numark¬†– 6 big rubber feet only aids stability on the flattest of work surfaces. First off, it’s worth stating here that the NS6 is as much an analogue mixer as it is a controller.
This is especially useful for existing SSL users who want to add a controller to their existing setup, as ITCH and SSL share the same library.
It also means that should your laptop crash, you have a number of analogue options open to you. At its core, the 4 channel mixer section does exactly what it’s supposed to without trying to be too clever.
I however am somewhat more comfortable than most, as I’ve used mixers for years that have only had master meters. To help with this, there is a software limiter that kicks into play when things do get out of hand. Given the sheer number of screws in this unit, I wasn’t about to break out the skratchdriver to pull this NS6 apart to find out what type, but I suspect a quality of short bodied alphas.
The cross is a Numark D-Type – their mid-range fader but retooled to fit the constricted space. As far as other fader controls go – the line faders have a software curve control in ITCH, from a tight scratch curve with 2mm lag to a slight extended linear curve. In these days of auto sync, you’d think that pitch controls would be increasingly redundant. The NS6 features a solid 100mm pitch fader that has enough tension to stay put, but won’t move if nudged accidentally.
A note about pitch takeover – when using 4 channels with just 2 pitch faders, confusion can reign when dealing with pitch differences. Speaking of which, auto sync is allegedly the devil’s own DJ scene destroying function.
When writing these reviews, the same things pop up over and over – especially in Numark reviews. Something that has slowly leached its way into the DJ scene without so much as a fanfare is beat gridding. The one key thing that I fell in love with about ITCH was how it focussed my attention on my DJ gear rather than playing with my keyboard.
The scroll knob does a lot – not only does it scroll lists of tracks but pressing it switches between panels. Another issue that some people have with ITCH units is that enabling effects can mean another hardware purchase.
ITCH gives the NS6 12 effects – delay, echo, reverb, LPF, HPF, phaser, flanger, tremolo, repeater, reverser, braker and crusher.
Having established earlier on that the NS6 is a highly capable analogue mixer in its own right, let’s have a look at the actual connections. Being a new ITCH controller, the software has been suitably updated to enable full ITCH functionality.
It works in the familiar metaphor of having a library of music, organised in crates and subcrates, but also having the additional functionality of smartcrates, where a crate can automatically contain tracks based on a number of predefined parameters.
Once your library is all sorted (although you can just go at the NS6 with raw unorganised files), using the navigation controls becomes second nature as you zip around windows and crates with ease.
One of the issues with making controllers acceptable to the masses is with the accuracy of the jog wheel. Taking the Traktor mappings first – Traktor 1 and 2 are catered for, with a separate 4 deck and sample deck maps for Traktor 2. Virtual DJ gave me solid results too, and also offered the extra dimension of video mixing. What you get is generous scoops of the important bits of key markets, all neatly squeezed into a solid beast of a controller. What Numark have delivered with the NS6 is a unit that takes the key ingredients of a diverse range of genres and ticks the vast majority of potential buyer’s boxes with a big fat marker pen. The NS6 sits happily in the same price bracket as its peers, but arguably does more and has a superior build.
The Numark NS6 has something for everyone – a real jack of all trades yet master of many that does everything well and has a lot to set itself apart from its competitors. I loaded the original fly me to the moon and the remastered song on to a sound editor on my PC. As for subjective listening, I find the remaster sounds less edgy(more analog-ish), with a small hint of air.
Best example is black and white fax machine where you have only two colors to play with but how do you make images appear better?
JVC uses advanced dither algorithms (though without noise shaping) in their proprietary K2 technology to transfer the analog or digital source to physical disc. If analog, the source material is first converted to digital via JVC's patented K2 20-bit or 24-bit analog-to-digital converter. The musical information is next encoded on a magneto-optical disk for transport to JVC's Yokohama manufacturing plant, where jitter reduction is applied.
This forum is moderated by volunteer moderators who will react only to members' feedback on posts. The bee workshops are part of the library Summer Reading Buzz scheme.  During the workshops, children learn about bees in Ireland, how a hive works and how important bees are to our everyday lives.
Yes, the 4 channel gravy train is rampaging through the industry, leaving a 2 channel graveyard in its wake.
But one notably missing exponent of such things is Numark, who blazed a trail with the eversowonderful NS7. Like a handful of other media outlets, we got an NS6 in pre-launch, and like the good hack that I am, I’ve given it a thorough beating to see how well it holds up to all styles of DJing. Sporting 4 channels, it has effects built in (so no extra ITCH box to buy later) and can handle analogue inputs too. But if you plan to travel a lot with it, it just too big for hand baggage, so it’s in the hold for the NS6, right next to the DDJ-T1, while the Denon and NI units sits happily in the cabin. For example, I tested running Scratch Live with the SL3 though it (you always need Rane hardware to run SSL), and I could switch between ITCH, SSL and regular analogue without a hitch.


So rather than having to pray that the crowd doesn’t hang you for more than a few seconds silence, you can funnel that backup iPod of CDJ that might be hanging around through the NS6. Unlike 4 channel mixers, the NS6 designates the middle 2 channels as 1 and 2, with 3 and 4 being the outer channels and carrying red markings on the faceplate.
It’s a highly pleasing range that sounds great with the 3 EQs doing a safe amount of work without pushing their ranges too hard.
I say thorny because it seems to have been the one thing that people have been quite vocal about online. That said, I’m long in the tooth, whereas the newer generation of DJs, especially those who are used to make more control over sound or come from a 4 channel background have every right to feel a little short changed. It shows you on screen like a peak meter, but automatically keeps the volumes from maxing out the White LEDs all the time. You simply cannot squeeze a full sized 4 channel mixer into a portable unit, thus Numark have optimised the line fader section by using 60mm faders, but only giving them a visible 45mm throw. As mentioned, you can assign channels to particular sides of the crossfader, depending on your preferences.
Usually enabled by a separate mini-jack cable, this feature really becomes an incredibly useful creative feature in a controller.
So you can imagine how people felt when Numark announced a 4 channel jog wheel unit instead. Well it’s no NS7, but the NS6 puts in a solid performance given the touch sensitive nature. So Numark have added takeover LEDs to the pitch, so that when swapping layers, an arrow will come on showing which direction to move the pitch fader to get the setting back to where it was. This touch sensitive strip lets you navigate the entire length of the track and drop in at any point. Pressing the skip button and moving the jog wheel moves the track in single bar increments, bang on beat as well. Assuming the BPM is calculated correctly, auto loop will engage to the correct beat and loop depending on the buttons you press.
Maybe because like auto sync it’s seen as cheating, but it has nonetheless become a relatively standard feature in many products. And this extends to loading tracks too, and the NS6 has all the controls necessary to make dropping the right track into the right channel really simple.
But only 2 effects at a time, so that’s 2 effects on one channel, one effect on a channel and one on the master etc.
Master output is via balanced XLR (which apparently you can thank me for insisting on their inclusion), as well as unbalanced RCAs. It is the beating heart of the hardware, and it can be said that ITCH drives the hardware, rather than the hardware controlling ITCH.
Loading tracks is really easy, but you do have a few tricks in the preferences for good measure – things like playing tracks immediately when loaded and setting the play point to be from the first cue point are pretty handy. And of course, ITCH shares the same library as SSL so changes made in one are reflected in the other.
Instead of being focussed on my laptop, the screen is little more than a big library, with all the work being done on the NS6. The NS7 and V7 absolutely nail the feel in ITCH, but translating that to Traktor for example has proved to be harder than most might expect. And while buttons, knobs and faders are all pretty standard, it’s always the jog wheels and platters that let the side down when trying to map to other software. Obviously having 4 decks means a pretty complete map of the main functions, as well as compromises on mapping Traktor specific features to spare buttons, or just having to leave them off completely. Overall, I would say that I was much happier with the VDJ mapping, and when some smart user decides to make an NS6 skin, this is going to be a pretty tight user experience, and will certainly give people unhappy with ITCH an alternative. The hype has impacted even on the look and feel of skratchworx, with Numark buying a serious amount of ad space to promote a product that they obviously have a lot riding on.
Many wanted a 4 deck NS7, and for the most part that’s what Numark have delivered plus effects and a full on analogue mixer being built in. 4 oh so trendy channels, a dollop of effects, advanced looping and hot cues, a full analogue mixer and various flavours of software support. To me, that’s the biggest barrier to adoption of digital decks and abandoning analogue ones.
The company claims to have studied how inferior CD-remastering techniques degrade the master tape sound and strives to minimize this loss. XRCD2 is the first to record to a magneto-optical disk via the digital K2 regenerator, while XRCD24 upgrades the original music signal's bit depth signal from 20 to 24 bits. Mindful of how their faithful customers would be knocking down their door for the next scoop of controller goodness, they teased their own future offering at BPM 2010, thus ensuring that their loyal customers would wait, rather than jumping aboard the aforementioned gravy train early just to satisfy their hunger for new tech. As you can plainly see, you get 2 jog wheels, with access to all 4 channels via the layer buttons. But after extensive research and listening to user feedback, these have been eradicated on the NS6, and replaced with hard plastic ones. I do however wish that the movement exhibited by the plastic posts could have eliminated by putting metal pots in there. And all this can be done without ITCH running or your laptop plugged in too, and the EQs and fader curves operate independently of ITCH.
It means you have to run SSL and ITCH at the same time, but given the relatively low footprint of both, it should be manageable to most users. I’d say that as long as you use a separate audio interface, you can run any DVS through the NS6. In tests, there is the tiniest of audible clicks in your audio chain when using the switch, but only when you listen hard. Thankfully in the potentially complex soundscape being weaved across 4 channels, Numark saw fit to include a split cue, something that I think is pretty near essential on 4 channel units. Being a 4 channel unit, DJs migrating from a 4 channel mixer are used to having a meter for each channel plus a master meter. Given that Pioneer own the club scene with their 45mm throw line faders on the majority of their mixers, a lot of users will be perfectly happy with this.
And I’m not the biggest fan of the faceplate fixing either as my fingers rubbed against the screws when scratching.
You can assign each channel to either side of the crossfader or simply leave it in the middle to play through unhindered. And with 4 channels all synced together, it’s an all new world of slam mixing synced pitch control heaven. It conforms to the usual metaphor of the top being touch sensitive with a plastic edge that can be used for pitch bending, or at the press of a scratch button, the whole wheel becomes a pitch bender. The simulated platter speed can also be switched between 33 and 45, and can also simulate spin and up braking speeds too. Traditionally, this words better for speeding up, but ITCH gives you a safe maximum range of 16%.
The NS6 strip search search has been improved with LEDs that indicate the approximate location in the track.


So not only do you get to jump around your track at speed, but it also provides you with another creative tool. But some tracks need work, that maybe as little as defining the first bar, or even stretching a beat grid locally on tracks with an uneven beat.
I suggest much messing around with them to see what works and to come up with some crazy combos too. The most interesting output for many will be booth out – something that the DDJ-T1 and Kontrol S4 lack, much to the annoyance of end users. You do get some options as far as layout goes – waveforms can be viewed on the left, right or on the bottom.
So when Numark announced that the NS6 would not only have full ITCH support, but also have Traktor and Virtual DJ support on day one of release (today as it happens).
But obviously each bit of software does things in different ways, so mapping controls to features in alien software is probably a matter of personal preference than anything. You have to remember that the 4 channel market is already established and based upon people NOT using turntables or indeed even requiring any kind of wheel at all. Each manufacturer is doing their own thing and putting their own twist on what they feel the market needs.
The slightly under specced fader setup and lack of motorised platter won’t endear the NS6 to turntablists either.
We discuss the decline in bee populations, threats to bees and ways the children can help to conserve these vital insects as they have a have a huge impact on our world. More or less every control on the NS7 had a hard plastic frame around it as well as custom moulded buttons. Numark tell me that these are tried and tested on other products in their range so I imagine that they’ll be just fine. So if you wanted to get clever with doubles in analogue and digital, then it should be smooth. But not being one for numbers, and rather more being about how something feels or sounds, especially when it comes to sound. If you’re migrating from a mixer with 60mm throw faders however (and the list is quite long), you need to work out if this is compatible with your established styles. But a CP-Pro would have been better given the premium nature of the NS6, but apparently there wasn’t enough room. Deleting is a matter of shift cue button, thus clearing the cue and making it available again.
The NS6 give you these tools locally to do pretty much all the beat gridding adjustment and fixes that you want. And for the record, this controller isn’t USB powered so expect to take the supplied wall wart everywhere. BPM, beat grid and waveforms created, you can set about sorting them however you want, and can predefine loops and cues rather than having to do all this while DJing. Having 4 decks does make things a little cramped, even on my 15″ screen, but I personally prefer the waveforms at the side, leaving more space for my library. I know many controller users feel handcuffed by the closed nature of ITCH, but this is also its strength.
Numark have made the Traktor mappings independently of Native Instruments, and the Virtual DJ mappings come straight from Atomix. The same is true with NI’s Kontrol range within Traktorworld as well, so you can imagine how increasingly wearing it is to have to load TSI files and configure this option and select that option to get stuff to work.
Another thing that ITCH has over any other software is post fader effects, which for me is a bit of a deal breaker. And while jog wheel response was good enough for mixing, I was only happy doing the very basics of scratch techniques. So I would take the available mappings as a starting point – something for the experienced mappers and MIDI geeks to get busy with and make better. Thus including a jog wheel is the best compromise, and it allows for a smaller size, radically reduced weight and subsequent competitive pricing. But these are niggles more than faults – some of which could be fixed with software and firmware revisions.
But I do find myself really liking the NS6 because of the true plug and play nature, wide software support on day one and stellar build quality. This optimizes the linear velocity of the glass master, giving precise pit lengths to eliminate time jitters, controlled by an extremely precise Rubidium clock.
Bees are the most important pollinator of flowering plants, and pollinate around ? of all of our food crops.
So if I were to describe it, I’d say that the NS6 exhibits a loud sound with a generous bottom and and bright highs, but importantly exhibits no digitalness whatsoever. It only has master meters (11 part Red LEDs with the top 2 telling you to turn stuff down) and for some this is a step too far. The crossfader gets a tradition sharp to linear curve control, and reverse is handled by the crossfader assign controls. To be honest, I find to be nothing more than decoration, but does give you a visual guide for deck focus.
I did however have to slightly adapt my timing for the NS6 when comparing side by side with Scratch Live.
So you can do the important prep work wherever you are, even if it’s the other side of the world from your gear.
ITCH v2 will feature SSL like views, but for those users who won’t use 4 decks, being able to switch them off completely would be a very good idea. And heaven forbid if you have to go through the process of MIDI learn to make your controller do things that supplied files don’t do. Traktor is known for complex effects, but due to a lack of buttons, only a limited feature set has been mapped. Children will learn how to create an upcycled flower pot using old yogurt pots and plant seeds to make their gardens more bee-friendly! The slot is big enough, and the connector is catered for in the Innofader kit, but the NS6 just isn’t deep enough. Given the possible hit and miss nature of beat grids, I find sync works better with grids off.
And having glimpsed the future with ITCH v2, the potential for further greatness is just around the corner. Some may prefer the rubber type, especially if repeated button bashing is your game, but I like these just fine. It doesn’t always hit the right transient, at which point pressing sync a few times will eventually make it match. If you absolutely must have the Innofader, you’ll be cutting a hole in the NS6 baseplate and almost certainly screwing any warranty you had.
