    Default So what happened to Ecler's DJ division?

    eclerdjdivision.com hasn't been updated in over 3 years and I've not heard any news about them in some time. Does anyone know what's going on? Have they completely given up on making new DJ gear?

    You can still buy their mixers so I assume they are still making them. I hope they are not on the way out, I'm a huge fan of their gear.

    no one wants high quality analogue dj mixers any more on a commerical scale i guess?

    Its's a bit sad to think that there will be a whole generation that thinks a DJM800 is nice to mix on...

    No real information there either.

    I'll just cross my fingers and hope that they become a bit more active when the economy picks up. God knows I'd love to see a new version of the Evo 4 with improved effects and an internal USB soundcard.

    Honestly I'd be thrilled just with a firmware update for the Evo line! I still have my Evo 5, can't really bring myself to part with it for what I'd probably have to sell it for. The hardware is soooooo good; it would be great to have firmware that let it do even half of what it's capable of.

    You're right that link didnt have much info; I remembered a thread where there was more info, I think even someone from Ecler weighed in, and it sounded pretty certain that the DJ Division is no longer

    It would be cool to open source the firmware then, there's a lot of smart cats in the interwebs

    Actually a firmware update would be awesome. A software upgrade to the effects processors would do a world of good to the Evos. It's certainly make me consider getting an Evo 4.

    So what do you want to see in an Evo 5 firmware upgrade?

    Wow, that actually could be a cool thing, write to Ecler to see if the firmware could become open source.
