The ProFX12 has been built as a user friendly alternative to having a sound guy set up the mixer for you. It has an RMFX (running man) FX 32 bit processor for the effects. There are 16 solid special effects including room reverbs, and choruses with an array of other effects, that help make your mixes more professional without requiring a 2 hour sound check. The mixer comes with a copy of Tracktion 3 music production software, but works with most of the DAW software on the market too. You can record your whole mix via the USB I/O. You can stream the output of your DJ performance or your iTunes playlist and then combine that signal with your turntables plugged into the mixer.

About the Author ()

I’m a part-time DJ and music digger. Although my days of digging in crates have finished for my love of all things digital. That’s unless a real special vinyl pops up for my collection. In my spare time, I enjoy checking out SoundCloud, Bampcamp, and swapping funk soul hip hop, and dance ideas with other DJs. I also have a cat, so any final decision on the music comes down to her.
