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.

DIY: Mini Innofader PNP + Pioneer DJM-T1 [Video]

The Mini Innofader is a user replaceable long life and low profile fader that can fit into many different mixers and controllers to give users a very durable and adjustable upgrade option. The Mini Innofader PNP is like a slimmed down version of the bigger Innofader so that it can fit into smaller spaces, but it still retains the solid/smooth contruction, the ability to adjust the cut-in distance, the polarity, and the sharpness of the curve.
