The Denon DN-MC6000 is a high quality digital mixer and controller that comes ready to go and easy to set up right out of the box. This controller has just about any function on it that a DJ could as for in this price range. All of the buttons light up making it very easy to see in poor lighting conditions. This controller is a 4 channel standalone digital DJ mixer that has a built in MIDI interface and its own sound card. I have used many Denon controllers over the years and I am very pleased with the quality of them. They also seem to make sure they all have a solid build to them and are not made out of plastic.
This unit comes with Virtual DJ LE software which is far from my favorite software but you can use it with just about any DJ software you may just have to do some tweaking of the functions within the program to get it to response correctly. There are vinyl pitch bend jog modes and even oversized cue and play buttons.
This interface and controller will work with any Windows system fluidly (not sure about Windows 8 yet). If you want to use it with a Mac you can, just make sure you have a good processor. There are 45mm cross faders and XLR balanced and RCA unbalanced master outputs. This mixer was a great live performer for me because of the mic ducking function and built in echo effects for the microphones.
I was able to set all of my functions up via the presets settings to be the way that I like to have them for each one of my shows. Being that at the time I was sharing this unit, this was a critical feature for me so I didn’t have to reset everything the way that I wanted it each time I wanted to use it.
