RANE MP-4 1U RACK MIXER W/ USB FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE
There is a major evolution going on in the DJ world. More and more DJs are incorporating digital music files into their traditional turntable and CD player set ups. The Serato / Rane partnership combines world class DJ software with sound card and mixer technology, providing a complete DJ system. Digital files virtually eliminate the need to carry vinyl or CDs to the gig. Heavy, invaluable music stays safe and sound(less) at home. The DJ is able to record special events and performances as well as convert vinyl into digital files.
The MP4 provides the convenience of playing digital music directly from your computer while still supporting traditional analog inputs for total flexibility. The MP 4 is the perfect mobile DJ product, providing superior software and a one-box hardware solution using a single USB cable connected to a PC.
The MP 4 allows the user to simultaneously:
Play analog sources
Play digital files
Record a stereo source and cue another source (digital or analog) using the built-in headphone cueing system.
The MP 4 is a two-bus mixer with two stereo Line/Phono inputs, two stereo USB digital audio inputs and one stereo digital audio output to USB. A-bus, B-bus, Master Mix or Microphone may be assigned to the USB record channel. The MP 4 allows easy digital recording of analog inputs not available on software-only solutions.
Ground isolation is provided between the mixer and the PC, removing a major obstacle to good quality PC sound. The MP 4 is always self-powered from the internal universal switching power supply using IEC 320-C6 inlet and cord.
The MP 4 supports bit depths up to 24-bit and sample rates up to 48 kHz. The MP 4 ships with a CoreAudio driver for Mac and an ASIO driver for Windows, allowing it to act as a high quality sound card compatible with many audio applications, including Scratch LIVE.
The MP 4 is ideal for DJ's who want to mix and beat-match digital files along with analog sources, but don't require the ability to "scratch." Serato Scratch LIVE software is included, and features a new control screen for the MP 4. The Scratch LIVE MP 4 control screen has the same great library management and file handling features, without direct vinyl and CD manipulation. This means that there is no control vinyl or CD with the MP 4, and all control is via the new on-screen features such as pitch-bending and nudging.
