Most DJs are familiar with Numark as a top manufacturer of mixers, turntables and other DJ technology, but did you know they've been getting into the videogame market as well? We've seen examples in the past with the Numark SCRATCH DECK Controller for Scratch: The Ultimate DJ Videogame, and now the company has used their DJ know how to help create Scratch: The Ultimate DJ for iPad, iPhone and PC platforms, a game that combines free-form DJ tricks with rhythm gameplay along with songs from well known Hip Hop artists. When the videogame hits stores later this year, players will be able to remix a song while they’re playing by mixing their own beats and effects into the track using the Scratch Deck hardware peripheral which blends a touch-sensitive turntable and crossfader with a series of beat pads.
The turntable in Scratch: The Ultimate DJ is based on Numark’s professional line of DJ turntables, while the beat pads are identical to the pads on the popular MPC beat machine from Akai Professional. Look-out for more details and pricing soon.
