I was never please to hear the news of Rane launching three new mixers to the world. The 61,62, and the 62z. They make very solid, American made gears that has a good feel and sound. I myself have a 57 and a chrome 57. I am looking at buying a 62. Here is some general info on them.
The Rane Sixty-Two is a plug-and-play package supporting two computers, 2-deck digital vinyl simulation, SP-6 sample player, software and hardware effects and all the record and playback channels you need. Software controls for Library, Loops, Cues and SP-6 are laid out for fast and intuitive access. Choose the Sixty-Two and join a community of users dedicated to advancement of the art.
If you are looking for the same bullet-proof construction, pristine audio quality and integrated 20-channel sound card but prefer to use your own MIDI controller with outboard software or hardware effects and a single computer, consider the Rane Sixty-One.

Rasta Root hooked up Dj Jazzy Jazz with a pair of Smokin Shells at the rehearsal for the Grammy Word Preservation event in LA this past week. If you don’t know who Jazzy Jeff is…please close this window and don’t ever come back to our site! Seriously though, follow Jeff at @djjazzyjeff215
Dj Imi is one of the last purists to still rock all vinyl sets. Whether it’s classic 45s or rare pressings, she either has them or know’s where to get them. A vinyl veteran who has worked at places like FatBeats La, Stacks Vinyl Authority and Amoeba Records etc.
Dj Rasta Root was sent to La to convince her to dabble in Serato Scratchlive. We’ll see how that goes!! In the mean time, Imi has the honor of being the first female with Smokin Shells on her decks. Make sure to follow her on twitter @AIMEEJOSELLIA
Dj Boi Jeanius was voted 2010 Best Midwest DJ. He’s been doin’ his this for a minute and was one of the first to show interest in Smokin Shells. He finally got a pair and was so gracious as to send us some pics of his install. Seems like using natural light is the best way to capture the natural shine of Smokin Shells.
