What customers say about "Key Specs"
Numark Mixtrack Pro 2 USB DJ Controller
  • The sliders and knobs are decent for the price but the jog wheels feel cheap to the touch and any moderately to advanced skilled DJ would find them awkward to use. I personally LOVE using the touch pads they feel like most pads found on the expensive controllers and I use them constantly.
  • The jogs on this thing are nothing to write home about, but pretty decent considering the build is ENTIRELY plastic
  • This review would be 5 stars if the sliding-scale pricing for the software wasn't such a bummer. If you believe my position to be invalid (hey who knows) then consider it 5 stars.
  • The demo software is plenty accessible for practicing before decide to purchase the full version (currently $100). If you have other softwares like cubase, then the demo software is enough to get serious (you can record into your DAW) .
  • Effects are from Serato, which I have nothing to say bad. Like I mentioned in the review title, it's a great controller for transitioning PC/MAC DJs.
  • Only issue ( sometimes) the right jog wheel feels a little bumpy at one point when it rotates.
Numark Mixtrack Pro 3 Includes Built-In Sound Card
  • The jog wheels are a little small, about 4-5" wide each. There are great and feel solid. They are topped with brushed metal and come with covers.
  • Good responsiveness on touch strip and jog wheels
  • The bonus is I'm finding it offers a lot more via the VirtualDJ 8 software which I'm still in the process of learning.
  • It's got pretty much all of your basic functions for operating virtual dj software (you won't be operating scratch controls on this board) and even adds touch sensitive stripping for the effect control.
  • The plastic housing feels cheap, as do the buttons and jog-wheel.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Numark Mixtrack Pro 2 USB DJ Controller
  • At first I thought the controller would be small or same size as Vestax Spin or Typhoon. Boy, was I wrong! The controller is big and has a good grip feeling to it when you first put your hands on it.
  • The sliders are knobs are perfect for the size and type of material the board is made with.
  • The Mixtrack Pro 2 is a great size for traveling, can easily fit into your book bag, and is very lite.
  • This combines features of a high end Dj controller with the price of a entry level piece but is beautiful and very light weight!
  • It is very light weight, so we have ordered the case for it to keep it safe!!
Numark Mixtrack Pro 3 Includes Built-In Sound Card
  • I was debating between this mixer and the Pioneer DDJ for a long time and ultimately chose this one because I like the size dimensions and functionalities a little better.
  • Other than that the small sleek design is great for portability and has all the necessary components to be dj a great set.
  • It's really lightweight so it's conveniently portable, and seems to have a LOT of functions for a beginner controller.
  • This is a BUDGET controller. It is light and made from mostly hard plastic

What customers say about "Features"
Numark Mixtrack Pro 2 USB DJ Controller
  • The shift button allows for many programmable features if you are keen to mapping, but I would not buy this product if you are considering doing anything even outside a medium house-party.
  • This was a Christmas gift to my newphew. So far he loves it. It has been easy to use Abe everyday he learns to use new features.
  • It's pretty easy to use once you get used to it and you also get a lot of the same features from more advanced controllers on this one. You get your money's worth for sure.
  • The unit offers tons of features though for beginners, for instance; 4 FX soft keys on each deck, and simple dials that are big enough to see in the dark. The Mixtrack Pro 2 is a simple plug and play unit, and anyone can use it right out of the box!
  • Grate performance, accurate, lots of features in one unit. Good entry level controller packed with the pro features of higher level controllers.
Numark Mixtrack Pro 3 Includes Built-In Sound Card
  • It's got pretty much all of your basic functions for operating virtual dj software (you won't be operating scratch controls on this board) and even adds touch sensitive stripping for the effect control.
  • For the controller itself, it has lots of features. It has a touch strip at the top of each 'deck' which controls the effects and you can skip to different parts in the song.
  • First off, let me say that the 5 star rating is not because this is the best controller you can buy. It is because of the combinations of features you get with this controller plus price that you are paying. The value you are getting here simply cannot be beat!
  • Sliding track search / FX manipulator. This is a Pro and a Con for me. I like the sliding track search, again, a more high-end type of feature, however, I would prefer if the FX had nobs for manipulation.
  • 10mm pitch slider. This is invaluable if you are a mixing DJ. You are able to make very small inputs and accurately manipulate the tempo of you track. No controller at this price range offers that.
