Lots of new DJ gear has been unveiled at this year's NAMM Show in Anaheim, and one particularly noteworthy announcement is Rane's MP2015 Rotary Mixer. In the flesh, the unit is the epitome of class; its luxurious build quality sets it apart from the cheaper plastic designs we're used to seeing.
Rotary mixers aren't for all DJs - those who favour quick cuts or transitions will probably prefer the traditional format - but it's ideal for more lengthy, precise mixing styles that suit the cooler spectrums of house and techno.
We took time to craft a few blends on the show floor, and were seriously impressed by the sleek EQs and filters (switchable between three different types), inviting you to grab its weighty pots and take control of your mixes with accuracy and cleanliness.
Although scratch DJs and effect addicts might look elsewhere, the MP2015 is perfect for buttery-smooth blends and lengthy transitions, so the more progressive DJs should definitely investigate this mixer further.
Control, sound, reliability and durability distinguish Rane’s new techno house club mixer for high-end audio systems.
Born from a legacy of rotary club mixers beginning in 1971 with Rudy Bozak’s CMA-10-2DL, on to 1982 and UREI’s 1620, then in 1999 Rane’s MP2016/XP2016 combo, and now in 2015, the MP2015 represents the next revival and evolution.
With over 40 years of rotary mixer experience to draw on, along with collaboration and input from the world’s best techno house DJs, the MP2015 is the best mixer produced by Rane—ever. There are no compromises in the design. It has the best sound, the best features, the best feel, and the best reliability and durability.
