    I have to say, it does look very nice. Reminds me of a Moogerfooger range (which I'm a big fan of) with the dials and the wood work:

    Although this is often claimed, I've found them to be worse for doing longer mixes.

    For one, you need both hands to be on the mixer if you want to blend. With a crossfader, you could do it with one.

    Also, the lack of EQs you mention up thread is an issue.

    ah yes, true, but ive given up on cross faders - the curves* are never quite right somehow and the whole thing is too loose..a small touch can have a massive effect - i use upfaders and leave the crossfader in the middle in most cases - most control that way. That needs two hands too. My kingdom for a good crossfader......

    (by crossfader curves i mean

    Id like a crossfader to do a slow fade from those examples...and have physical resistance

    Agreed on using upfaders, but disagree on needing two hands there. Guess it depends on your mixer, but I can easily do two [adjacent] channels on the mixer with one hand, which leaves the other free for record adjustments/EQ/whatever.

    Ideally you wouldn't need to touch the record again, and with a short mix it's not a problem, but longer mixes, defo. Rotaries make it hard - especially as the setups I've used them on have them rack mounted and not close to the decks, making travel time between deck and knob longer - so I just do shorter mixes.

    one on each fader when enough pissing about is required, chopping up and down between the two, tweaking levels during cuts etc.

    I'm not bothered by it in the slightest, but you do seem to be constantly referencing people over 40 these days, and generally not in a positive way. Are you not aware of it?

    Ska used my words verbatim from another thread to have a humorous dig at me - I was responding to that. Does it really need to be explained?

    If you think it's OK, that's fine by me.

    i wasnt digging at you KB, i genuinely thought it also applied for this bit of over expensive gear porn kit - with a bit of humour on top

    younger people are primarily spending their money on rent and maybe mp3 controllers rather than costly retro rotary mixers to blend disco record to. (apart from fez ;) )

    Well - I'm also over 40, and I think it's fine for me to crack jokes about the obsessions and interests of people over 40. many of which I share. Especially when someone else has decided to carry a joke across from another thread.
