    Default Gauging Interest in 4 Channel MIDI Mixer

    Howdy folks, so the time has come for me to hassle you all again about a potential new product that I'm hoping to bring to market alongside a big company

    This would be a pure 4 channel MIDI mixer; nothing fancy, styled after the Z1 (same height, same length, but twice as wide and constructed with a metal chassis). Up faders will be damped for smooth mixes, and the crossfader MAY be an Innofader Mini depending on how much it'd change the pricing by.

    3 band EQ per channel, dedicated filter knob, and a gain knob. There'll also be kill switches for each EQ band, possibly as a separate button or - more likely - as a push-down on the knob with an indicator light.

    It'll have a basic 4-out/4-in audio interface built in which will let you hook up a microphone or two AUX inputs for live playback through decks C and D in Traktor, and unbalanced and balanced outputs.

    So, would there be interest in this product?

    I just ordered the Z1 yesterday but would still like to get a similar 4 channel mixer and with a 4in/4out sound card it could be used for timecode mixer with Mixvibes Cross witch I would be using it with for sure.

    Yeah that'd definitely be a possibility The only problem is that due to the prohibitive cost of Traktor Certification we wouldn't be able to offer it as a DVS for Traktor (or Serato), but Mixvibes, Mixxx, VirtualDJ and Deckadance would all be options for DVS users

    Primarily, however, I envisage it being used alongside an pair of X1s or PL-1s as a Traktor mixer. The idea is to provide enough flexibility for people to use it however they want by not artificially limiting specific features like some of the other pieces of kit on the market, so DVS would still be an option for those not using "the big two".

    I'll sell my Z1 to get this!
    I've written a few bangers and played a few raves but have since sold out.

    Haha Well you could always disable the feature in the mapping (or even with a physical switch on the unit) if we didn't use push-knobs, what would you prefer? Physical kill switches or buttons? And located where? Beside or underneath the knobs?

    Given it's a 4 channel, I love the way the layout is on the K2. Also, VU's would be great! Considering how easy they are to map too. At least 20 little LEDs would be great but 10 would do! Right now I deal with 4! Haha!
