A-Trak’s custom Seventy mixer looks professional. There’s new aluminium capped rotary style knobs along with a stunning silver finish and an A-Trak logo cleverly using the crossfader as the middle dash.
Fader-FX, a new feature for this mixer, adds four effects and four tone generators which can be controlled by the upfaders on each channel. Performance effects include Filter, Roll, Pitch and Ring Modulator while the tones available are Sine, Sawtooth, Square and Triangle whose root key and octave can be changed in the settings.
As Rane and Akai are owned by the same parent company, this mixer has access to the iconic Akai Professional MPC performance pads, which can control a range of functions on the Seventy. Slick, contactless MAG FOUR faders are available on channel and cross fader spots.
“I worked with the engineers at Rane to customise the sound curve to suit, a little bit more, my style” says A-Trak on the new mixer. There is a bump to the low end which is a welcome addition to anyone playing dance music who wants a bit more oomf from their setup.
The mixer comes shipped with two 10″ Serato Sticker Lock Control Vinyl and custom stickers to deck out your DJ equipment.
