-Manufacturer link: [[http://www.numark.com/​mixtrack]]+This controller as the same as the [[Numark Mixtrack Pro]] but without a built-in sound cardIt has been discontinued and succeeded by the [[Numark Mixtrack Pro 3|Numark Mixtrack 3]].
  
-====== ​Controller description ​====== +====== ​Default Mixxx mapping  ​====== 
-===== Technically ===== +This mapping ​is included in Mixxx as of version 1.11.
-The Numark Mixtrack ​is a fully compliant MIDI controllerIt is interfaced with a computer through a single USB port and it does not include a sound card.+
  
-===== Who should buy ? ===== 
-Anyone who wants an affordable mixing midi controller to start with the hobby and who already has a sound card with two **independent** outputs (one for the headphones and one for the main output). 
- 
-===== Who should not buy ? ===== 
-Anyone who wants a professional grade mixing controller, or a piece of equipment combining both the mixing gear and the soundcard. ​ 
- 
-====== Numark Mixtrack Support in Mixxx ====== 
-===== What is the state of the support in Mixxx ? ===== 
-As of Mixxx 1.8.2, the Numark Mixtrack is fully supported. The controller mapping and backing script is maintained by the community and is regularly updated to take the remarks and improvements into account. 
-As an example, the "​stutter"​ functionality was implemented in the 1.0b mapping, which can be found in the [[http://​www.mixxx.org/​forums/​viewtopic.php?​f=7&​t=1808&​start=30#​p10182|corresponding forum thread]]. ​

-When not in scratch mode, touching the jogs won't pause the song. Turning them will slightly adjust the tempo, which will resume slowly to its speed. This slowness to resume is somehow equivalent to what you would expect from drivebelt turntables. I hate it, and I have not found a way to correct it... This is why I mostly mix using the bitch bend buttons, which allow for an instant resume to the "pitch slider assigned"​ pitch for the track.+When not in scratch mode, touching the jogs won't pause the song.

   * The autolooping functions, altough implemented are quite flawed. The "loop one bar", which is present since the 1.0b version, is making a loop between two bars, which are rarely fitted on real "​measures"​.

-  * Pressing play while "cue previewing"​ should start the track for real, CDJ style.

This is not implemented yet, and is marked as a TODO in Mixxx code, so it is unlikely to get implemented on the controller mapping side. *NOTE: If you use the mapping included with the software, this feature is supported. Controls in this mapping are different than the community made one, so be careful.*
   * Final remark on the hardware design: be very, very careful not to press the "Load A" or "Load B" button, instead of the corresponding track'​s "​cue"​ button. They are very near, the error is easy and produces the most dire effect in a party: an awful blank !   * Final remark on the hardware design: be very, very careful not to press the "Load A" or "Load B" button, instead of the corresponding track'​s "​cue"​ button.

 +====== Virtual DJ-like mapping ======

 +This is an alternative mapping designed to work like VirtualDJ.
