    Default Numark blatantly steals from Akai?

    Saw on scratchworx that Numark is releasing something called the NSP6

    This is what is looks like



    This is what the Akai-LPD8 looks like


    is it just me or is numark literally making the exact same product?

    Seems we post at the same time about the same controller... you must be blind, it doesn't looks like an LPD8 at all

    that's so stupid, guaranteed you're going to have to pay more just so it's "itch compatible". Serato and Numark can suck my nutsack

    Nevermind...numark owns lpd8

    it's still dumb, but the thread can be deleted, there's like 5 of these going right now

    Well it doesn't make it any less true, it's just they're stealing from themselves..

    They took a totally different angle when designing this

    Already familiar with the Akai/Numark relationship so no biggie besides a lazy design department.

    But the fact you can't use additional MIDI controllers in ITCH makes this one pretty good. . and this isn't exactly new. . .
    Vestax did the same with the VCi-300 with that VFX-1?

    But, I dunno why this upsets me. . . .it just does. . . .I can't explain it!
    It is an unknown fact that Mr. T is the original Black Power Ranger.

    This looks like a nice addition to a turntable set-up.

    But WHY OH WHY have they put the USB connection on the front of the unit?!?
