There are also other basics and goodies for your mix session: For example a two-channel mixer, navigation elements, streaming support via software, jog wheels, large filter controls, and performance pads per deck to fire effects, cue points, loops, and samples.

Especially those who come into contact with DJing for the first time in these times should not have a large local music collection available yet. However, streaming playlists sometimes do. The two Numark DJ consoles work together with Serato DJ Lite on Mac and PC, are also compatible with Algoriddim djay Pro AI on Mac and iOS (adapter required), and you can also use DJ Player Pro. As a result, you can play music from TIDAL, Beatport LINK, Beatsource LINK, and SoundCloud GO, provided you have a (paid) subscription to the respective service.

Both the Numark Party Mix II and the Party Mix Live have three multicolor LEDs on the back panel, with which beat-synchronized DL lights can be started. However, you can also deactivate the feature. Party Mix Live also wants to score points with built-in DJ speakers, which can be activated at the push of a button and deactivated for pure headphone mixes. The manufacturer gives information about the performance as follows: Two 5.25 mm drivers with 5 watts each are installed, the frequency range is 150 Hz – 20 kHz.
