Numark PPD01
Just Digital inputs would be nice.

Price paid

$300

UTILIZATION

It's a scratch mixer with 6 inputs... very easy to use.

Alesis parts inside. Very nice.

SOUNDS

Xcelent... 24bit digital optical and coaxial outputs as well as master and booth balanced outs. Faders effects are nice. Fader maintenance is very easily done with an eraser and some cailube.

OVERALL OPINION

I would buy again.

Numark PPD01
It has all the essential features that a scratch mixer should, ie xfader & upfader curve and reverse, 3 band graphic (which double up as filters too- they're effect is wicked). PPD-01 also featured 8 digital effects (Flanger, Phase, Cut Pan, Auto Cut, etc). Some of these effects are good- the Cut pan works well (especially for chirps) & my favourite effect is the Flanger, but others are not quite so useable. The effects are selected via a 'toggle' switch which is very 'user- unfriendly' as you have to skip past some effects to get to the one you want! no good if you're trying to do it real quick.

Price paid: £220

UTILIZATION

I have found the PPD-01 easy to use, the effects selector- which I mentioned earlier, is my biggest issue with this mixer. It would have made much more sense to have seperate buttons for each effect so that you could just 'hit' the button for the effect you want.

The mixer as a whole seems pretty durable, it's quite heavy too- the faders on the other hand don't seem to take much punishment before they start to bleed.

SOUNDS

The sound quality is good overall- although I do think that some of the higher pitches sound a bit harsh. I have only used this mixer on small/medium size set ups. There is very little (if any) hiss/hum when the mixer is on with no sound playing through it and the monitor sound is good too- it also has a tone adjuster to give a bit more flexibility

OVERALL OPINION

It's a bit different and I like that. I really do feel let down by the effects 'toggle' stick/switch and the quick wearing faders so I can't say 'i love it' but you could certainly do alot worse.

Totally Sweet...!

Price paid

$325

UTILIZATION

Easy as 123.

SOUNDS

Sweet!!!

OVERALL OPINION

Well here is the catch... I had to return one of them because after 1 week I got this nasty feed back. Grandmas Music took it back, and now my Mixer has been working great since then. I was able to pick up 6 Digital Faders for $10 a piece. I have not had to replace them yet. Also you can clean them using an eraser to get the bad stuff of.

it's good... I am still looking though. I have to admit though... it is the best one so far. However I am considering the RANE TTM-56i...

Very good mixer with very good effects.
Ability to scratch easily.
Never had a problem to use.
Note: the first that javais avai bought a manufacturing defect specific PPD01.Une series was defective so I understand those who have had problems with but by bringing it to my dealer changed me directly.
So why not just wash back?

Ben on ac 'is a normal table, flush ..
Oh yes, one for output + numrique, killed with a sound card and the quality is better serious

UTILIZATION

The above as ras, c is a mixer which

SOUNDS

Its quality is going that is good. s can be 'a little fun with the filters but they are not essential ... I think it's more for the mix electronic

OVERALL OPINION

2 years of service and I'm the super, I 'm waiting for a table with a crossfader that final shot and that is really not a must, in addition to what little I use it I d becaufe the taste does dja cross properly, and we find no other for this MODEL ...
I now understand why it is no longer available for sale, if c 'silent again I will change. I have 400 to pay for that price I will have prfr add 50 and buy a PMC 05

Level connectivity, a good point, it is the jack outputs. One wonders why everyone does not have, instead of the ugly little RCA.
The EQ is trs thundering, a nice quality sound, well suprieur the average of what is the price.
It also possde that extra INTERESTED but virtually unusable, it is converted into filter press of a button. The smart ide is to allow a prrglage inaudible until you keep your finger on that button. The Hi-Med-Bass, become Freq-Gain-Res. And return the EQ by the same way. We can not however monitor headphones are we going to get, so the rglage is blind (well, a deaf ...) which means that it is unlikely.
Effects section with a concept but also some exploitable INTERESTED: Actions by the crossfader, and adjustable canned squentielle like speeds on sports cars. So if you want to troisime, you will first hear the 1 and 2! And first if you want anything back, you'll hear all the others first!

UTILIZATION

Well, see above, just use dcu, because all these functions have been promising AVRES a little gadget.
While the sound is excellent, including the filter, the concepts are a bit hazy INTERESTED.
Also, the crossfader is imprcis and digital perfection, it's blabla Merchant: ca spit, it makes false contacts, clear my Vestax mixtisck everything from analog and I possdais before and that is a REAL table scratch did much better and took much longer.

SOUNDS

Hot enough, the table produces a grain INTERESTED, in the words of another speaker. Trsrduit breath, and sampler, it does carrment. I have not used the output numriques, but I guess it still wins clarity.

OVERALL OPINION

Then it is that the Athniens s'atteignirent! The particular feature that I absolutely dtest is that it has just snap in your fingers!
One day a year and a half APRS use, and I turn BAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, its a big mass grave mdium standard for all rsultat saturated. This table has spent all this time warm without manip 'chelou or travel, or DMC Freestyle session or anything.
I sent home for Numark Repair Tool (Swiss distributor), and it tells me, quote pay support, she has "lots of failures!"

Then I think back all those who had deprecated the mark ...
Does the product removed from the range, no accident, therefore, even secondhand, I would like to deprecated. Mine? Bah, I'm ngocier with the distributor for the custody and not make me pay for the quote!
As for tables numriques is what can happen: it's like Mr. Magoo's car, she walks, and then all of a sudden we do not know why she is falling apart.

Nothing else to add ...

UTILIZATION

Same ... is a mixer ... there's no special need for manual!

SOUNDS

Surprising ... a rather special grain and kills supra effective ...

and filters ... hummm, deliciously master!

OVERALL OPINION

Unlike al 'previous opinions, I do not recommend it to fans Skratch ...
the fact is that the cross is a bit hard (compared to a sm or vestax)
but to incorporate its effects has Skratch, it's great!
it brings a touch of originality (which should not be abused certe) that really brings out the Skratch.

Finally, finally, I am a DJ Skratch EXCLUSIVELY (a platinum skracher left and right ... MPC neo metal!)
and I'm a nag ULTIMATE! I never had one problem with this Mix7 ... and there'll be two years that I use ...

2-way
Ideal to use with two turntables.

UTILIZATION

This is a table trs easy to use functions require time to be well maitiss mix.

SOUNDS

The sound is exellent, the qualiseur is a marvel, a veritable massacre, the sound that it is absolutely not mtalique, the stamps are just and prcis, the cash lctronique well the carts and level differences, the feel of knobs is super enjoyable, when you get in the way "to hold preset FILTER MODE", you enter another world, to push the filters beyond the limits, a veritable massacre, never seen on other tables, when mixing techno or electro, it's dlire, intert you have speakers who cash and well that does not saturate, especially regarding the low, all coupled to the multi purpose is to Enfert!
I also admire every day regarding the quality of the filters, a wonder!

OVERALL OPINION

I use this table for ending for two years, I bought used 350 Euros (almost 50% of its new value, compared to the price of the table when she left the era) not a scratch, in a state of looking new + +. When I bought the crossfader silent sucks (there was a loose connection at an end and a consquant repisse sound of the plate once that is teacher, I must admit!) in the dmontant, I glimpse the hooks that hold the guide rails taient lightly twisted (she had apparently belonged , not long ago, a guy who scratchait with a nag), I remarqu that the cross had never dmont t!, I cleaned the tracks with a cotton swab and put a good shot of spray contact, I remont all this, and since it is nickel (I once had this little problem ... in two years ... but trs TRSL ger), like I Redmont cross, cleaned etc ... put the bomb contact, and since we go again as forty, since I no longer of problems.
I do not scratch with the cross is super fragile and requires maintenance (much like the engine of a car, not the drain every 10 000, but put the bomb rgulirement contact every 6 months or more, depending on use), if you do it regularly, you will not have any problem, is that it is fragile little girl! But we understand the fragility which cross the tracks used for gre several multi-effect integr of its complexity or who actually made his heel Hachile ... The engineers have to do this shit, but I forgive them, it have at least one bone CRER single system that does not exist on any other table had to be done! despite its fragility even when I shoot them my hat.
Otherwise, I find that the cross is not made for scratching, I found it "somewhat heavy", the crab-scratch is tedious to do, and the cut is not a terrible redoutabilit, c ' is the least we can say (not very very net net, if you know what I mean ...), why we prfairera cross a Gemini UMX3 more basic (in the low end), a Vestax (in the high end) etc. ... much smoother and faster with a more straightforward and clear cut.
The faders are good quality touch and stroke of the faders + qu'agrable we feel even when it's good stuff and not sham.
This is a relatively complte table, with two rglages on two output levels (eg back and the sound system) practice to grate the two without touching the amp being mix, the headphone output is relatively powerful is that is enjoyable when you hear or mix too returns or the sound in the room, and the sound is good quality and more with an adjuster bass / treble, the return this discretion with a crossfader, which is my taste more convenient and faster than ever strum keys (like the Pioneer DJM500, not the name!).
The VU meters lack prcisions, everything is blue from top to bottom! It's pretty, but how do you know if is saturated or not? I remarqu that sound n'tait not saturated to half and between 3 1/4 gain, APRS must rely on her ear + Another ... default, the quality of "imitation chrome paint" who goes around dconfiture the cross, it's been really ugly, too bad she is so beautiful between my mk2 gray.
It is now two years I possde, and I'm never bored in my mixes., Multi effect adds a + is a table for well o master the muti-purpose ncssite time, it is not in six months that can go around, especially in the techno possibilities are nice, (not the same as a Kaos pad for example) as long as the we have a little imagination and it is known manage the trick ("autocut rate" and "filtered spleen" eg. stall at the same BPM piece etc ...).
Or the price I pay I do not regret my choice, it is still a good table trs, despite the fragility and unreliability of the cot crossfader.
Today I do not regret my purchase, but if I had to put almost 600 Euros I would regrett more "default" of cross-fader ... but for a little over 300 Euros gonna I am happy.
T seen what it's going withdrawn from the market may be becoming a collector's table who knows!
Too bad they laisss drop the original concept of this table without being able to delete the default ... raliser too expensive ...?, Numark he lost too much money on this product ...? raliser not? ... too bad, the good ide silent.
In short, it's a good table for techno, electro, drum'n'bass, filters are good and powerful, the crossfader dconseiller fans of hip hop and other bourrineurs cross!, It must be delicately manipulated and maintained contacts with a bomb graissante regularly, if you follow my advice you will not have Trouble with.
If you find it cheap, this table remains an affair.

Report Kaliti excellent price!
faders and crossfader are one of appalling weakness ....
excellent for electronik musik ..... if the user prefers hip hop .. he would mieu to redo the prosm-1
I'm really not disappointed with my purchase. j hesitated with the Pioneer DJM-600 .... the ppd-01 offers many more useful functions
