Turntablists and A-Trak fans, this one’s for you. RANE and A-Trak announced their collaboration today: an A-Trak take on Rane’s beloved Seventy mixer. It’s a limited edition battle mixer titled – you guessed it – the Rane Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition.
The mixer is built on the foundations of the Seventy, with a handful of enhancements made by A-Trak. On the surface, you’ll find a different faceplate: a silver finish, aluminum-capped rotary knobs and encoders, as well as a custom font. The real digs, though, are the tweaks that lie beneath. Two major highlights to note: first, a new Fader FX that transforms the channel volume faders into linear controllers for performance effects and opens up the capability to change octaves, root keys and more; second, a sound curve customized by A-Trak personally (more on that below, and in our upcoming review of the gear).
Here’s the rundown of the mixer’s features:
- A silver solid-steel exterior with rotary-style + aluminum-capped knobs and dual diecast, rotatable aluminum FX paddles
- Fader FX with 4 tone generators, controlled via up-fader
- A signature A-Trak sound curve, created with custom low-end frequency response and a signal-to-noise ratio of 114dB
- 3 MAG FOUR contactless faders with external control for crossfader tension-adjustment
- 16 performance pads – offering independent pad modes for each channel, and with Scratch Bank support
- 6 post-fader internal Flex FX, stackable with Serato DJ Pro software effects
- Dedicated SYNC buttons with the ability to change to Silent Cue or Instant Doubles, and dedicated loop controls
- 32 MIDI-assignable pads
- Dual USB connections and microphone inputs
- A Rane Twelve connection hub
A special 10″ Serato Sticker Lock vinyl also comes with the mixer.
The Rane Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition sits at $1699 USD. We’ll be sharing our in-depth review of the mixer from DJ Soo shortly, so keep an eye out. In the meantime, grab more details on RANE’s website.
