Numark Orbit was designed with the creative DJ firmly in mind and is perfect for live performance allowing clever music manipulation techniques to be executed in a straight-forward ergonomic way.
Designed to give further control to the creative DJ, Numark orbit is tailor-made for live performance. With a design that looks like a cross-between a CDJ, a Novation Launchpad and an Xbox controller the Numark Orbit can be handheld, strapped to your body or table mounted.
Orbit can be used wirelessly for upto 8 hours from a single charge or powered via USB for extended use. Orbit features 4 selectable banks of 16 backlit pads, 8 on each side, for adding and blending effects, launching hot cues and samples, and more. Located in the center of Orbit are 4 bank selection buttons, 4 virtual knobs, and a large aluminum-faced touch-sensitive control wheel, which controls the selected virtual knob for instantly tweaking effects and filters.
Orbit's live-performance design extends even to the inside of the device, where it has an embedded 2-axis accelerometer, which can be assigned to 2 different parameters per bank and activated instantly via 2 shoulder buttons. All of Orbit's controls are fully mappable, so DJs will be able to customize their settings for effects control, transport control, volume control, or any other MIDI parameter.
