Numark 5000fx Review

The Numark 5000FX is a 5-channel DJ mixer with sampling, scratching, and effects. It features high quality
analog mixing and sophisticated digital functionality in a 14´´ by 12´´ tabletop design. Ideal for club or
remix DJs, the 5000FX offers live audio and sampler scratching, plus 30 seconds of high quality sampling
with pitch adjustment and “smart loop.” Loops can be automatically synced to audio via beatkeeper technology.

Digital effects include chop, echo, delay, isolate/kill/vocal kill, distortion and sonar. An interactive
scratch/effect/pitch wheel allows responsive scratching, smooth effect transitions and precise pitch adjustment
for locking samples to the tempo of incoming music. Other slammin’ features include dual BPM meters,
18 seconds of audio buffering, fader start and a replaceable crossfader with adjustable slope for tight
cuts or gradual crossfades.

The flexible configuration of the 5000FX includes five channels with three phono,
nine line (three switchable to phono) and two mic inputs-including a top-mounted Neutrik jack that accommodates
both XLR and ¼´´ connectors. Each of the five channels includes independent bass, mid and treble EQ controls with
frequency kills, as well as pre-fader level meters. Outputs include XLR balanced and RCA unbalanced master, zone,
booth, record and S/PDIF digital.

All in all a great buy for anyone who loves mixing with no fuss.
