    Default Gear recommendations: new mixer

    I have a Rane MP2014 and I知 absolutely nuts about it. I love the sound, I love the filters, I love the isolator, but for playing some styles it痴 a bit... rotary. I知 not much of a scratch DJ but I do like to cut fast sometimes.

    Can anyone recommend a two-channel fader-based mixer with similarly high end sound quality, useable either as a soundcard or traditional mixer, with good configurable filters and no internal effects?

    And yes, since you ask, I知 a middle-aged man with more money than self-awareness, rather than a working DJ.

    Thank you, but those are all way too tricky and software specific. I have plenty of MIDI solutions, I want something that値l work equally well for Traktor or for two 1210s. Hence the MP2014 as my reference point.

    The 62 and S9 will both work with Traktor.

    Maybe with Traktor 3, but they're not certified for Traktor 2.

    They asked for channel faders.

    In absence of more choices maybe the crossfader will be sufficient.

    Also Mastersounds might be releasing 2ch version of their Radius/Linear 4V. But that's just a thought, not even a rumor so far.

    When buying a decently priced mixer, what's another $50 really in the long run?
