[DJ Expo 2017] Rane Seventy-Two Mixer & Twelve Controller Video Walkthrough

We were on hand at the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, NJ Earlier today to talk to the Rane people about their latest products. The newly announced Rane Seventy-Two Mixer and Twelve Turntable Controller are a reality. The Rane Seventy-Two mixer is a two channel battle mixer which looks like a Pioneer DJM-S9 with a screen in the middle and three Rane Magnetic faders. The Rane Twelve Turntable Controller is a solid all metal digital turntable that does not use a needle or tonearm for sound, but rather digital USB connections to work with Serato DJ. Check out my quick rundown video below and stay tuned for reviews as soon as these bad boys are released. Check out the additional info below for even more on this dope new setup.
