Ideal for the professional club DJ with a channel-assignable DSP module and many audio input options.
Each of the 5 channels on the CS-02 music mixer come equipped with an EFX assign button, crossfader assign switch, and an input assign knob that will allow you to customize which input is fed to the respective channel. The Gemini mixer also features a DSP effects module with 25 DSP effects to choose from, each of which can be assigned to any channel. Additionally, the CS-02 features a zone select switch that gives you the power to choose which input is assigned to the zone output.
With the auto BPM/TAP button, a DJ can take advantage of the effect sync feature by syncing the chosen effect with the tempo of the song. The tempo can be set by tapping the button in time. A tempo ratio control is also included for use in conjunction with the effect sync feature.
The CS-02 mixer also features 3-band EQ with gain control for each channel, top-located aux and rec inputs, and fully featured mic and cue control sections.

This is a great mixer for the price if your looking for a lot of features, channels, and hookup options. It has clear sound with low noise. The faders are smooth, and quiet. However do not buy this for the FX! on the first mixer the FX's broke immediately. On the second one they work but not well. Rather unimpressive. The FX's BLEED through all the channels when on. Even the unselected ones. For sound mixing this unit is great for the price, but not for effects.
Overall this is a pretty good mixer, however I wouldn't recommend buying it for the effects. The crossfader is nice and has a switch to select different slopes either sharp or smooth. There is a slight gain in the middle of the crossfader on the sharp setting. The upfaders are all but dead until the 70% mark. The rotary nobs have a nice feel to them. The effects section has a few decent sounds to it, but when when they are turned on they have weird effects on the volume of the playing music, usually it totally mutes the song playing for about a quarter of a second. This is worsened by the fact that there aren't any real sends and receives to use an external effects pad, that the more expensive mixers have. I have figured out a way to rig it with an effects pad by using the zone send and plugging the return into a spare channel. A Big pro to this mixer is the 10 selectable inputs (5 per channel) and the fact that it has five outputs in the sub-400 dollar range. It even has a UV meter for each channel plus a master meter. It has mic inputs and RCA, no digital inputs though.So if you are looking for a board that has multiple inputs to practice on before you upgrade this is a good board to get, however don't expect it to have professional sounding effects like Pioneer boards, although it does have the tempo adjust knob just like their boards.Overall, this is a fairly solid board with pretty good sound. I would recommend it for someone who wants to learn how to work on bigger boards but doesn't have a big budget. I wouldn't expect to see this installed in any major clubs either.
