Topic: Numark Mixtrack Platinum - Page: 1
They finally released a decent mixtrack. It's come a long way since the day of the original Pro edition. I like the screen concept in the middle of the jogs and the dedicated filter knob, but damn...this should have been released with VDJ and not Serato Intro. I'm sure it'll get mapped soon and you really can't beat that price of $299.

Also, to make matters even worse, the hardware manufacturers now seem to be making it harder for the units to be fully mapped meaning some functions don't work. It will be interesting to see how this 'software battle' will pan out.
You'll start to see that with Pioneer gear I bet. Over the months or years, I bet all new Pioneer gear will be 100% locked to strictly Rekordbox. That then will leave Numark, Denon, American Audio, Gemini, and others to fight over whether they allow their products to be opened up to all software or certain ones.

Take a look at the Supported Controllers Wiki page and you will see that almost all the new DDJ-R series are now supported.
As for the Platinum, we already know that there is no "lock" in this case, so support will come really soon ;)

One other thing that you can try is to make sure the sound card of the Platinum is NOT the default Windows sound card and no enhancements are applied.
EDIT. I just tried with my Platinum here and you re right. As soon as any DJ software (VirtualDJ or Serato Intro) launches, there is a humming noise coming out of speakers. And found no way to get rid of that despite the tweaks i tried. I suppose the unit should have its own power supply with all those LEDs, screen displays etc. I am sure Numark wouldnt care much if this was only happening with VirtualDJ, but since its happening with the bundled software as well, i think you should keep emailing them and report whatever issue you are having. One thing is for sure, there is nothing wrong with the way VirtualDJ has mapped this unit.

EDIT. Just spoke to Newmark and they heard the hum but, asked me to download the specific version of Serato to try it and, NO HUM. But go back to VDJ8 and the hum is back again

EDIT. I just tried to strip down the mapping file (well, the definition) and found out that the more i get rid of LEDs, the more the humming noise gets reduced, and if i get rid all of them, the noise goes away completely. This leads me to the conclusion that its definitely a powering issue through USB.
