Accommodates the diverse needs of all DJ mixing styles.
The Rane MP 2016a is a rotary-controlled audio DJ mixer with 6 input channels. It also has booth and house outputs, pre-effects tape outputs, post-effects tape outputs with level control, switchable effects loop, and headphone cueing. The Rane mixer's input channels 1 through 4 feature high quality RIAA phono preamplifiers which may be switched to line input via rear panel switches. Input channels 5 and 6 each provide a balanced mic preamp with input gain trim, mic/line switch, two-band EQ, mic engage switch and an internal booth ducking enable jumper. In addition to the six dedicated preamplifiers, all 6 input channels on the Rane MP 2016a rack mixer may select any of the five stereo auxiliary inputs.
Each input channel on the Rane DJ mixer provides a 6-position source selector, input gain control for matching levels, signal/overload indicators and a studio-grade master mix control.
The booth output may select master or cue as its source. An ultra-low noise, high power headphone amplifier also allows monitoring the master mix or cue mix.
Rane's MP 2016a improves on the original MP 2016 by adding split cue. Individual cue switches on each channel drive a panning master/cue control for the headphone output.
The master mix circuit provides signal/overload indicators, mono switch and high-pass/rumble filters. In addition, the master output features patent-pending, high-performance 3-band, full-cut, accelerated-slope tone controls.
The MP 2016a provides exceptional ergonomics, good feel and a clean, intuitive layout packaged in a compact 19", 3U rackmount chassis, a scant 5" deep.
So you say,"Great, but to accommodate the diverse needs of all DJ mixing styles, I need dedicated high performance three-band, full-cut, Accelerated-Slope tone controls for each of the six Input Channels, high-performance Active-Crossfader with full range contour control, A-Post-B crossfader assign switches and a stereo, 10-segment, peak dBu Master/Cue meter with peak hold; all without effecting the ergonomics of my classic rotary mixer."
Rane has you covered! With the flip of a switch on the MP 2016a front panel, you can engage the DJ mixer's optional XP 2016a External Processor and acquire all of these features.

Comments about Rane MP 2016a 6-Channel Rotary Mixer:
This is the purists mixer. If your sounds quality standards haven't been ruined by terrible MP3 sound, and you're old enough to have heard and appreciated ANALOG electronic dance music, then look no further. For playing vinyl, no DJ mixer will beat this (short of the $6k Allen and Heath V6). Also, if you play a lot of WAV CDR's (or if you're a looser, MP3s) via CDJs, this is still the real deal. Mixing with rotary knobs takes things up to the next level.
