DIY: Eclectic Breaks Pro-X-Fade Crossfader Installation

The EB Pro-X-Fade is compatible with Stanton, Gemini, Vestax, Allen & Heath, Korg, and many other mixers on the market today. Most mixers with four-pin style crossfader connectors will experience a plug and play install, while mixers with three-pin style connectors or special circuitry may require some additional modifications as was the case with my Korg KM-202 in this video. My personal Korg KM-202 mixer has been around for years and we recently added a new Stanton-T.120 style skin to the mixer, installed a Traktor Audio 4 soundcard to eliminate setup cable-clutter, and we also added the rubber coated Chroma Caps from DJTechTools for a better overall look and feel.

The final and most natural upgrade for this mixer is the Crossfader. We are hip-hop DJ's who love to scratch here at djbooth.net and we are always looking for ways to improve on the scratch-ability of our mixers or controllers. The Pro X Fade crossfader was the perfect choice for this mixer as the small under-body allows for an installation even in tight places.

to see if your mixer can take advantage of this excellent upgrade. The Pro-X-Fade crossfaders cost around $100 each and they are available at the EB Shop.

Reloop RMX Innofader Installation [Video]

The Reloop RMX mixers are built tough and they have great features such as on-board FX and different inputs and outputs for all DJ styles. They also have removable crossfaders which can easily be replaced for the more "scratch-worthy" Reloop Mini Innofader. We've already done two in-depth video installations of the full sized Innofader PNP and the Mini-Innofader PNP last year, but Reloop has just released a quick video showing others how simple it is to make the switch. Check out the video and links for the RMX Innofader after the jump.

[Video] DIY: Traktor/Serato DVS Soundcards Installed Inside Your Mixer

In my latest DIY Video, I'm showing the masses how they can install a Traktor/Serato DVS soundcard inside of your favorite mixer for a nicely updated and compact setup. Some new mixers on the market today come with a DVS soundcard already installed (Traktor Z2, Pioneer DJM-T1, Rane Sixty-One) so that the user only has to connect their CD or vinyl timecode decks directly into the RCA inputs for a plug-and-play solution. I installed a Traktor A4 inside of the Korg KM-202 & a Traktor A6 inside of the Vestax PMC-05ProIV. Check out the writeup & video inside to see how it's done.

GOLD Turntables & Mixer DIY [Video]

The Traktor Kontrol Z2 Mixer and Stanton ST-150 Super-OEM turntables are my battle weapons of choice. I have been using this setup for the last few years now and I always had a vinyl skin on each piece to make it look unique. It's about time to switch up the look, so I decided to contact our friends over at 12inchskinz.com to see what they had to offer. We decided to go with the "All-Gold-Everything" theme to change the Turntables & Mixer to have a loud gold appearance and we were NOT disappointed!
