    Default Suggestions on a nice 3 channel mixer>>

    Shopping for a new mixer. Would really like the following features.

    Rack mount
    3 channels
    Crossfader reverse /hamster switch

    I've only owned 2 channel mixers in the past. Want the 3rd channel for the remix decks. I run TSP2/A6 so I don't need a built in soundcard. I like to keep my 1200's in the case, that's why I want rackmount.

    Was looking at the Rane Empath, but it looks like it doesn't have a reverse crossfader?

    Any suggestions are appreciated. Would like to stay under $800 but that's not set in stone.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    Empath is an awsome mixer. As you said though no reverse x fader. I wish I never sold mine

    Ecler Nuo 3.0 if you want 3 full channels.
    Ecler Nuo 2.0 for 2 full channels + a mini channel for the remix decks (volume knob, gain and 2 band EQ without full kill)

    I like the size of the 2.0 & the area around the fader is clear of clutter. Also has rackmount options & the price is nice.

    I shouldn't have a issue routing the F1 to the 3rd channel?

    Thanks Popinjay!

    I've seen several go for under $400 on ebay recently. Saw one end yesterday under $350 shipped with a case.

    cant you just open the mixer and flip the fader up side down? I always open up my 57 when i clean it and it doesnt seem like a tough thing to do.

    I need to be able to turn it off & on. I only use reverse when scratching/transforming

    I'm in no huge hurry, but it looks like the Ecler is it.

    Anyone know if I will have a problem routing the remix deck to the 3rd smaller channel on the Ecler 2.0. If not I'm going to pull the trigger. I like the size & will make my tables even closer together than they are now.If it will be a problem I'll pick up the 3.0

    Thanks
