15The Numark NS7-II is another example of the extreme-sizes trend in DJ controllers. Weighing in at 35 pounds, this full-featured controller is a force to be reckoned with. Motorized platters are this controller’s big pull, but it has plenty of other features to keep you busy. The rotary effects encoders look really nice, and the sixteen pads (non-RGB, whew!) are borrowed right from Akai’s MPC line. It truly is a dream to play with.
