Two years after releasing their well-received DJ2GO2 portable DJ controller, Numark has delivered the DJ2GO2 Touch. The device features a series of innovative upgrades, including a built-in sound card and Serato DJ Lite. Plus, with the DJ2GO2 Touch, the DJ can perform hot cues, looping, and sampler effects. Most notably, DJs are now able to scratch, as it is enhanced with capacitive touch jog wheels.

Numark has announced the “Scratch,” an affordable two-channel mixer designed to work with Serato DJ Pro.
The Scratch features a mini Innofader crossfader, hardware filters, and other pro features like XLR main outs and a dedicated booth output.

A pair of loop encoders can also be used to select and load tracks. Additionally, the Scratch offers instant access to six effects in Serato DJ Pro, trigged by two-way paddle switches.
Although the Scratch was just announced, it is available in stores now, priced at $499.
