I’ve only had it for 12 hours, so I can’t do a proper review yet of the NuVJ, but its strange MIDI mappings (and those of the Total Control) have caused me enough trouble that I’ve posted about it on CDMusic. the Total Control jogwheels use a bizarre schema for their endless encoder messages.

Numark’s NuVJ as a DJ/Music Controller; No Nudge on iDJ2 iPod DJ Mixer (But Some Won’t Care)

Numark’s new VJ product looks like it could be the missing link DJ controller hardware a lot of us wanted.
