For Dj's these days there are many quality mixers available on the market. These can range from 2 channel mixers to 6 channel, and even extra mic channels to bridge the gap between a DJ mixer and a small live mixer.
The Pioneer DJM series has been a very popular Dj mixer series for many years and the DJM 600 is a 4 channel version with built in effects unit.
The DJM 600 has been one of the industry standard mixers in previous years although it has now been replaced by newer models such as the DJM 800. Since this mixer has been used in so many top clubs in the world, you know that it's a quality product that can be trusted.
The four channels are great as it means you can have 2 turntables and 2 Cdj's attached at the same time. Adding in extra inputs is easy and switching between a phono or line input on each channel is as easy as flicking a switch.
Each channel gives you great control of low mid and high eq as well as individual gain knobs. Each channel has a Cue button so that you can listen, and see the levels on the led indicators, to just that channel with headphones.
The effects on this mixer are great and range from reverb and filters to delays and flangers. Effects can be routed to a single channel or over the master output but a simple rotary knob. To put an effect on there is a large LED lit button that flashes when pressed to let you see that the effect is on. The level of the effect is adjusted by another rotary knob.
The crossfader on this mixer is good as you can assign which channels can be each side of the fader and you can also adjust the fader curve. This fader feels good and can be used well for scratching and precise fading.
This mixer sounds great and is built really well so will last the test of time. I would recommend this mixer to anyone who wants a good Dj mixer.
Although there are more updated versions of this mixer, this mixer is great and since newer models are out there you can probably get a good bargain on a second hand DJM 600.
5 stars from me!
