    Default Recommend a mixer

    Hello everyone, I'm planning to buy some cdj's (prob 850's) and I need advice on the mixer

    I've looked at pioneers so far, but am not impressed by the 350... There are not many effects or filter knobs

    The djm400 looks nice, but is it worth it? It has nice effects but is old technology

    The others I'm looking at are the djm700, but it is also old and I really don't need four channels. This leaves me with the djm-t1... Can it be used by itself without traktor, because I'm trying to get away from a laptop?

    Any other cool mixers I should check out? The top of the line 4channel mixers are out of my price range and are way more than i need.

    Important features for me are filters and delay sound. I like the t3 delay in traktor

    Thanks!

    DJM-T1 can be used without a laptop, but I don't see why you would want the DJM-T1 if you aren't going to use Traktor. It's made for it.

    Check out Denon. Pretty much every mixer has filter. I coulda swore the DJM350 had delay though..

    Thanks, I will check out denon. I've never used a 350, I was just looking at the 4 effects buttons so I am probably wrong lol

    I would rather have a dedicated filter knob instead of a filter effect for simplicity

    Wow, you're right.

    I had no clue it was so stripped down.

    I definitely understand wanting the dedicated filter knob. Just too important of a knob. What's your price limit? That'll really help.

    I have heard good things about the Denons and the Allen and Heath DB2.

    Also a great 'bang for buck' mixer is the Behringer DDM 4000. A few of my mates swear by them, although they all say if they suddenly got a wad of cash they would go pioneer or A:H.

    For 500 and less definitely get a Denon. You aren't going to be able to get a 4 channel Pioneer for that.

    DDM4000 is a great mixer as well. I really want to get one, but I rarely use effects so I'm leaning towards an analog mixer, absolutely LOVED my Xone 42. Maybe consider the Behringer NOX404 or 606.
