Serato DJ is teaming up with Italian-based DJ gear manufacturer MIXARS to introduce the MIXARS Duo, a Serato DJ and DVS-enabled two-channel mixer.
The new mixer serves as the launch for the MIXARS brand, which will act as a new subsidiary for dBTechnologies as part of the RCF Group. Promising to “create high end products to fulfill the needs of demanding DJs,” the new brand is set to release a premium range of DJ technology.
The MIXARS Duo features an integrated 24-bit/96kHz audio interface, a Mini-Innofader, eight rubber performance pads, and control for Serato DJ FX. The unit is also equipped with a USB hub to power USB devices and MIDI controllers, and easy-access Mic and AUX inputs make setup a breeze.
