Primetime is almost upon us and The new SC5000 Prime offer dual layer control - meaning that each player has TWO pairs of audio outputs to feed into a mixer. This means that any DJ need only buy ONE SC5000 unit and they’ll still be able to mix tracks, use one track as a backbeat and scratch a whole different track over the top, or pretty much anything that they could do with two players.
But… what about all you DJs who are keen to move up from midi to standalone technology with two decks… that’ll be four layers/tracks going into a four channel mixer.
How will you have your mixers 4 channels assigned ?
Both layers of the left player onto channel 1 and 2 of the mixer? Then both layers from the right hand player going to channels 3 & 4 on the right of the mixer?
Perhaps both main layers going to the middle channels 2&3 of the mixer, with the 2nd layers of each deck going to the outer mixer channels?
Decisions, decisions… but what’s your decision ?
