So which mixer is right for you? That depends on how many channels (and features) you think you'll need. If it's something compact and stripped down that you're after, try a model like the top-selling Gemini MM1 2 Channel Audio Mixer. Boasting 2-band rotary EQ with Gain control on each channel, a smooth cross fader, headphone output, mic input and more, this portable stereo mixer is ideal for any aspiring DJ. Another terrific choice is the DJ Tech Thud Rumble TRX Scratch Mixer. Available in black and white colors, this mixer was developed in a collaboration with DJ Qbert's Thud Rumble record label; each channel has trim control, pan slider, fader reverse and curve adjustment, you name it! For switching between traditional analog and DVS, the TRX is the perfect scratch mixer.
Now for all you DJs who need more than 2 channels, you'll be blown away by your options in these pages. For example, there's the Denon DN-X1600 4-Channel Digital DJ Mixer; it's constructed for all applications and it even synchronizes visual effects to the beat. Or how about the Pioneer DJM-2000nexus Professional Performance DJ Mixer. Equipped with Pro DJ Link (the ability for linked multi-DJ play), LAN terminals, built-in USB audio interface and a seemingly endless range of enhanced beat effects, you'll have no problem making a name for yourself on the DJ scene with this powerhouse.
Honestly, the DJ mixers available here are so chock-full of unique effects and features, your best bet is to delve into each model for a closer look at what they have to offer. It's a safe assumption to make that DJs have benefited more than any other musical artist from the digital revolution, and it's obvious when you experience what one of these DJ mixers can do for your performance.
