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.

[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.
