rack is
Many connectors
effects sections Intgr
syncho twelve o'clock


simple when you use the fingers of Richard Clayderman in broad daylight.


worthy of its catastrophic Pioneer Premire consoles.
no breath still happy.
qualisation effective. when the low couope mdiums take in again in a serious shot in the wing.


1 week of use before returning it.
I had djm 500 dj, djm 800, Freevox DJ4, vestax pmc-cx.
the two are the only effects INTERESTED echo ping-pong and mini sampler syncho.
Report qualitprix is ​​zero.
I would do no such choice is clear!
here is my exprience on this fisher price table:
buy in December 2011.
1st printing dballage plutt good: nice cover, instructions in English, mtal quite sharp in places and large head screws visible everywhere on the console ...
1st listens and how much to say ... shit!
I will say that I am wrong so I puts the test tomorrow.
Unfortunately, the following tests amplify Premire my impression: I never much of a novelty t especially it Submitted across bte as "the beast" as our English friends say.
qualisation to impressise possible. ultra slippery rubber buttons. effects compltements cans. position in qualisation filter up / down pass unusable. nothing to do with the real hi-fi sound from a pmc-cx for example.
the height is the pr-cost "cue" the west. Indeed, the sound of the master output is much stronger in the costs "cue" the next song. unworkable in the house mix in the headphones. I can assure you I am plutt pain for IT and paramtrages. I changed custom settings but nothing on this point.
the sound of a cold worthy of the first portable mp3.
hello night anxiety to find the buttons not to mention the tiny slecteurs mtaliques not found the night and especially not prvus for intensive use. there is also the game in all potentiomtres rotary. has not really inspire confidence.
the digital screen made me think of Nintendo consoles Premire.
the USB port on top is for the updates and save paramtrages prfrs console. short: anything on top of the console.
the headphone jack is extremely teachers there.
Finally, the change effects during a mix is ​​frankly broken foot.
what a shame for this great brand audio. I who am a fan of Richie Hawtin I get high.
like what the marketing would have us believe that this product can INTERESTED while it is 100%. some effects are so rotten that it says IMMEDIATE user went wrong paramtr effects but no.
one last tip: try the console in BMD in a store before slamming into 2 k this shit.

- 2 outputs REC OUT RCA and S / PDIF

What is the accuracy of the sample (bits / kHz)?

2 USB sound card to 24bit / 96kHz integrated

The parametric equalizer is it?

Yes equalizer be configured as an asymmetric EQ (+6 /-25dB), Isolator (+6 dB / OFF with a slope of 24dB/octave) or reconfigured as a system of high-pass filter / low pass with adjustable resonance

An effects section is it integrated?

Yes, Quad FX Core DSP engine, Looper and double filter.


The general configuration is it simple?

Yes, just plug it using the USB cable and install the drivers on both PC and MAC.

The manual is clear and sufficient?

The manual is comprehensive and explains the features of the entity table.

The usual functions are they easily accessible?

The table is very intuitive and all hands on in spite of the many features.


The equalizer is effective?

Yes even though I have not a lot of reference material.

Introduces it's breath?

At present, nothing.


How long have you use it?

For 3 weeks.

I use it in Traktor Pro 2 with two Xone 1D, a Kontrol X1 that is synchronized with Ableton 8, Apc-40, PK-25 and in Maschine plugin.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

BCD 2000, Xponent, XONE 4D

Not or not only the "mixers" but these are the only references I have.

What is so special that you love the most, least?

Compared to my other systems all in one, there is no picture, there is a range greater level functionality, compactness (vis-à-vis the 4D) and sound.
The looper, effects, filters can change the sound to infinity (do not abuse it either!)

The table also has many internal settings and a matrix, which is very significant.

The only fault I can find is that it can not be aggregated with another sound card (my Audio6 dj in my case) on Mac OS X (to my knowledge).

How would you rate the quality / price?

Good value for money, quality, functionality and innovation justify the price.

With experience, you do again this choice?

Yes of course. This is sheer pleasure of owning this piece of technology.
