Pioneer has just announced the new Digital Mixer called the DJM-T1. This new mixer comes bundled with the new Traktor 2 software system and is fully integrated with its internal USB soundcard that eliminates the need for an external soundcard for connectivity. The mixer can be connected to analog or digital decks for full Traktor Scratch Integration without the need for an additional audio interface. Effects, Loops, and mixer buttons are all fully synchronized with Traktor 2 meaning the DJ never has to leave the mixer for file browsing and audio manipulation. Built with the same high-quality features as the Pioneer DJM mixer lineup, the DJM-T1 continues with excellent sound quality, powerful audio outputs, and faders that can take a serious beating. The DJM-T1 will be out in July 2011 with a retail price of about $1800. Check out the full press release below for more information.
Pioneer DJM-T1 Traktor Mixer Video
While scouring through the internet, I was able to find a cool new video on the new Pioneer DJM-T1 Digital Traktor Mixer. This video is a nice demo showing many of the key functions of the DJM-T1 while DJ Jekey shows you all it can do. This mixer also provides full DVS functionality, meaning that you can plug your analog decks directly into it without the need for an additional soundcard like the Audio 4. I've already seen the price tag of about $1500 floating around the internet so it's anyone's guess how many people think it's worth it. Either way, we will have one very soon for a full Video Review. For now, check the video inside.
