Gear Review: Numark Mixtrack Pro 3



I've always had a soft spot for all-in-one dj controllers - compact design, easier to set up, and a good all-around value. So what would I buy if I were still spinning? The Numark Mixtrack Pro 3 would be high up on the wish list. Simple to use, and new enough to offer the features a modern dj needs (see the video above), but not so new that it costs an arm and a leg.

A sampling of the feedback from around the web:

'This is the best Mixtrack Pro yet. It's the most 'grown up' looking design to date for this model, being nicely spaced out, and feels very natural in use, especially with those lovely long pitch controls... For the price, it's a steal.' - Digital DJ Tips (4 stars out of 5)

'This is a real plug and play experience. Throw your tracks into Intro and you're off. Syncing works on a very simple level, and should allow you to match beats pretty accurately... DJing is after all about mixing music, and the Mixtrack Pro lets you do that perfectly.' - DJWorx.com

And finally, a quick routine by DJ AP:

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

DJ mix/mashup: roxanne loves cheap thrills (ft. Harry Styles' As It Was x a-ha's Take On Me)

Made with Logic Pro at 86 bpm Quick note on what I did with Harry Styles' As It Was - the original plan was to use that 10 note drum-less synth intro on a loop. But things got a bit more complicated when I realized the 10th note came with a heavy drum hit. So we did a little surgery, subbed in the same note without the drum, and cut it up to get a decent imitation of what I wanted in the beginning.
