Rane introduces three new mixers to the dj world

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.

>> Serato


Z-Trip’s Limited Edition Sixty-Two Z Mixer is functionally identical to Rane’s Sixty-Two, with a face plate design by Shepard Fairey and custom purple cables.

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.

La’s Dj Imi reps Smokin Shells

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
