The MP2015 from Rane is a high-performance rotary-style DJ mixer aimed at house & techno DJs and designed for high-end audio systems. This music-mixing performance instrument offers mastering-quality converters, studio-quality phono-preamps, S/PDIF connections for connecting CDJ digital media players, and a professional quality microphone pre-amp with selectable +48V phantom power.
Each channel offers a 3-band, full-cut EQ with selectable crossover points and a resonant sweep-filter with selections for low-pass, high-pass, and low & high-pass filter types. The Isolator EQ section is a master-bus 24 dB/octave (4th order) phase compensated Linkwitz-Riley design with continuously variable low-mid-high crossover points. All the EQ, filer, and tone controls are accurate, high resolution, fast, and artifact free, with all filter coefficients accurately calculated for the selected sample rates.
The MP2015 also features a submix channel, which combines 1 to 4 channels plus session input into a submix with a dedicated EQ, filter, and volume controls. This function allows DJs to combine and process multiple tracks with single knob controls, instead of juggling multiple knobs and buttons. Additionally, the submix can be used as a 5th input channel from the session input section.
The dual port USB interface allows for two computers to be connected simultaneously, enabling back-to-back DJ sets without interruption. The USB port is class compliant for Mac OS X, while high-performance ASIO drivers will run on most Windows DAW and DJ software. Each port supports 10 playback and 14 record channels, letting you record all four decks, the submix, session input, and the main mix.
The ergonomic design features an effortless layout for professional performance playback and offers classic-spun aluminum knob caps, 16-segment level peak-hold meters, and back-lit push switches. The rugged chassis is made from 1.22 mm thick, cold-rolled steel with an aluminum-zinc alloy that is rust resistant. A Lexan overlay is used in lieu of silkscreen printing, which not only provides a matte surface to prevent glare and enhance readability in low light, but also prevents wear which would eventually make the printing unreadable. The MP2015 ships with a power cord.
