August 17, 2010

This 4-channel/eight-source stand-alone digital DJ mixer with MIDI interface and internal sound card offers real-time channel matrix operation, a slim tabletop design, state-of-the-art solid-steel chassis construction and quality sound. Also acting as an audio interface (with a 2-in/2-out stereo soundcard included), the DN-MC6000, when paired with the user''s software of choice, is a turnkey control solution for mobile DJs and party DJs.

It comes bundled with Virtual DJ LE, audio/video/karaoke mixing software in North/South America and Canada, and Native Instruments Traktor LE for Europe and Asia. The DN-MC6000 is MIDI-mapable and compatible with other DJ programs. The unit interfaces with Mac OS X and Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. The DN-MC6000 includes a selectable video/audio control crossfader feature. Each side of the unit can control up to two decks (for a total of four), with visible deck color-change for straightforward operation. Also notable is the fact that the DN-MC6000 is a real mixer, able to process audio inputs for external devices without a connection to a computer.

Key features include rackmountability (with included 19-inch rackmount accessory kit), a number of onboard MIDI effect controls, durable construction, intuitive layout, dual jog wheels, pitch fader, channel fader, crossfader and more. The unit''s Pitch/Fader/Volume Lock function holds the last known audio value and position until the null point is again reached. It is also easy for users to find where they are going, with the included File Browse navigation keys and rotary encoder file-selector knob with illuminated ring. Also featured are the unit''s high-output headphone amp, the independent 3-band channel EQ with “Kills” (high/mid/low) and various Utility presets to customize user settings.
