    What's wrong with a Xone:22?

    If you're going to settle down with one mixer fo-eva I'd certainly get something a bit nicer. Hell, just use the E&S DJR 400.

    Don't have money for one right now.
    I'd rather spend more on TTs for now.
    When I do upgrade mixers it'll be rotary mixer. In the meanwhile I figure the XONE:22 will do me just fine. I don't scratch so I don't need a Rane or anything with the crazy crossfader from hell.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I thought you were saying it was your dream mixer

    You really have to trust you ears to be able to use a rotary mixer like that.
    Something I found on the net awhile back:

    How to use a rotary mixer by Larry Levan

    "First you should never max-out your input level pots. Never try to get more overall volume by cranking the individual input level, which will only limit your headroom for blend volume matching.

    Always use the master level to achieve overall volume levels. Remember the mixer is a pre-amp and it's driving the amplifiers, so the master level pot is the most reliable source for signal to the amps since it stays constant. This will allow you more flexibility when cross mixing between turntables.

    To get the best sound and to make the mixer work efficiently always use the input level pots between 6 & 8, 8 to10 give’s you the gain on the channel. This gives you a constant blend volume reference for mixing without compromising your overall master volume. Also it maintains a consistent record out level. The master gain pot does not affect the record out signal.The rule of thumb is to set the master level to the overall desired listening volume. Usually between 3 & 6 for low to moderate listening levels and between 6 and 9 for hi-volume listening levels. You never want to run at 10 on the master level pot for fear of over-driving the amplifiers.
