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.

For the Audiophile DJ

Comments about Rane MP 2016S 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.


Wicked Mixer!

    Comments about Rane MP 2016S 6-Channel Rotary Mixer:

    If you experienced the sound system at the Paradise Garage, love reggae dancehall, Soca, or Deep and Soulful house music, this is a choice mixer. Although it's not the original Bozak, Urei 1620, or you may not want to spend for an Allen and Heath Xone V6, the analog sound quality from this mixer is wicked. When I spin Garage classics and other records, you can hear each instrument and the vocals, crystal clear!

    It's unreal how you can manipulate the crowd and the sound of the music using the low, mid, and high, full kill EQ's. It's basically a mini Isolator! With 6 input channels you don't have to waste time flipping switches back and forth, in the middle of a mix, going from turntable to CD player. I love the smoothness of the Alps pots when mixing. If you didn't get a Urei back in the day, get this now.
