NAMM is one of the biggest music trade shows around, showcasing everything from high-tech DJ equipment to the latest piano accordion fashions. Winter NAMM 2010 was held January 14 to 17 at the Anaheim Convention Center, California.
Modern DJ setups may bear some resemblance to the turntables of days gone by, but these days disc jockeys pack more technology than most musicians. Numark's recently announced NDX800 CD-based turntable boasts an adjustable touch-sensitive platter for better control over the music. The turntable offers a number of effects and the ability to cue a track from different points. Best of all you can use the NDX800 as a software controller in conjunction with software like Traktor or Ableton Live.
