[Archived] Looking For A Cd/hard Drive/external Hard Drive Mixer For Music

Recommended Posts

Ok, I don't know how many of you out there will be able to help, but I am looking to buy a mixer and was wondering if anyone here knew of some good options. I'd like it to be able to run off of an external hard drive, although if it had a built in cd player or could hook up to a computer that would also be a bonus, as would having a hard drive built in. Quality is important and I'd also quite like it to be somewhat portable. My budget would be 500-1000, so not a ton, but should be enough for something decent. At the moment the only one that seems to do the job well that I know of is the IDJ2 from Numark, but it seems a bit of a toy.

So, any advice?

Don't purchase any of the Numark stuff, all of it is like a toy, i have had previous models of Numark IDJ's and they are just a joke. I took it back within a couple of days everytime. I used a Hercules RMX at one time but that again were like a even if it were a great increase in quality. To be honest i would struggle to recommend anything to you without knowing what you want it for? Bedroom DJ'ing? Commercial/Club DJ'ing?

The Rane TTM57SL with Serato Scratch Live looks the business, although I'm not sure it's the type of thing you are looking for. Serato Scratch is a well established software package but you'd need at least one deck for full utilisation of it's features

The TTM57SL mixer (which controls the software via a USB) is based on the TTM56i which is a well established model - the majority of DMC competitors use the 56i and DJ Shadow used to tour with one, amongst many accolades. As far as build quality goes I'd be surprised if you could find better.

The whole package is £999, although you should be able to either find one cheaper on Ebay or ring round places (decks.co.uk / djdeals.co.uk / htfr) to get a best price and then play them off each other to get it down further - I got a ton off a TTM56i about 2 years ago by doing that.
