If you are a DJ then you’ll already be familiar with the reputation of Rane, the American pro audio designer and manufacturer. Now the company has taken its no-nonsense approach and created a dual personality mixer, the SixtyOne, in partnership with Serato Scratch Live.
With the global recession still biting hard, and every possible permutation of DJ controller and retro-chic synthesizer seemingly exhausted, the question must be: is now a good time for the world’s audio manufacturers to be launching a slew of new products at Germany’s annual music-tech blowout Musikmesse? And the answer must be: Jahwohl!
In a week that has seen yet more rumours circle around Technics shutting down manufacturing of the 1200/10 turntable, the organisers behind DMC have announced Rane and Serato have joined the list of sponsors for their annual DJ Championships.
