MESSE10: 7-Channel DJ Mixer


Behringer have introduced the DX2000USB 7-Channel DJ Mixer. Here's what they have to say about it...
These days a DJ gig can command a lot more than a mic and a couple of turntables. You may need to accommodate a multimedia presentation, a variety of audio platforms (vinyl, CDs, mp3) and multiple mics--all at the same event! That's why BEHRINGER is proud to present the 7-channel DX2000USB with its built-in USB/audio interface--an invaluable tool for the DJ-of-all-trades.
Live Large With More Mediums!
If it can be clicked, spun or spoken, the new DX2000USB can mix it! You get 5 dual stereo inputs plus 2 mono mic/line channels with ultra low-noise mic preamps, Phantom Power, Gain control and Clip LED. The DX2000USB also has enough built-in phono preamps to handle up to three turntables. Finally, the built-in USB/audio interface gives you the power to add your computer's digital music library to the mix.
Old-school feel, new-school performance
The DX2000USB is packed with cutting-edge versatility, but we didn't lose sight of the basic features that make a DJ mixer a lasting part of your rig. This new breed of DJ mixer features super-smooth ULTRAGLIDE faders with up to 500,000 life cycles, and an infi nium optical VCA-controlled crossfader for utmost reliability and smooth audio performance. The DX2000USB comes armed with a 3-band kill EQ and Gain control per channel. Mono channels feature an additional Low Cut switch and an FX switch that routes the channel to the FX SEND and RETURN loop, so you can add a touch of outboard eff ects. These channels, which accept microphones and 1/4" line sources, also feature a Talkover button, a Channel On button and PFL switch for headphone monitoring.
Stereo channels have an EQ on/off switch, as well as a Crossfader button that sends the channel to the main stereo mix or the crossfader. An Assign button selects whether the channel appears on the X or Y side of the Crossfader. For the DJ in need of mammoth bass, the XM2000USB features an XLR subwoofer output (perfect for connecting to an active subwoofer) with adjustable Crossover Frequency dial and Level control. Directly above, the DX2000USB provides a 1/4" main mono ouput for synching your music's strongest pulses with a lighting system. The Main Output section off ers 1/4" and XLR stereo outputs, as well as 1/4" inputs for connection to outboard EQ units. This section also features RCA outputs for recording your set. The Monitor/Zone Output section gives you stereo 1/4" and XLR monitor outputs, as well as 1/4" stereo zone outputs.
Super Software
You get incredible multitracking software and more when you hook up with the DX2000USB. If you're ready to record your projects in style, XT Software's energyXT2.5 Compact BEHRINGER Edition is just the trick. This amazing DAW (digital audio workstation) makes it easy to manipulate your audio and MIDI fi les, turning song ideas into stunning CD or web-ready recordings. energyXT2.5 Compact BEHRINGER Edition includes a built-in synthesizer, which can also be accessed directly via an external controller or programmed by stepwrite mode.
