Rane Takes Control Back With The Rane Seventy Battle Mixer
It has been a long wait for those who are looking forward to Rane releasing another battle mixer that could take the lead. Back in 2017, they released the Seventy Two and it certainly has its fair share of fanatics.
However, some felt that its a little bit complicated and big as compared to the Pioneer DJ S9.
Earlier this year, they’ve released the Rane Seventy. It comes at such perfect time because its main rival, the Pioneer S9 although it’s still good is still in need of an upgrade or update. Let’s help you figure out if it is really a good buy by providing you a simple overview and review of the Rane Seventy.
Rane has thought of durability when they built this mixer. It is made of textured black steel on the front with large grab handles. It is made to last for a long time and has a similar diecast aluminum paddles. It is a great choice for DJs on the road.
Fully Adjustable Faders
This mixer is fitted with the Magfade Four faders, which are fully adjustable. They feel great and are easy on the hands. These make it easier for DJs to fine-tune it to their scratching style.
Additionally, it also features Akai performance pads. Those are very responsive and durable so they can take on the abuse.
This battle mixer is meant to be used with the Serato DJ software, which is why it features two USB B ports at the back. Plus, there are also two USB A ports for the Rane Twelve controllers. Additionally, there are also line-level auxiliary inputs, switchable phono/line inputs, and Session inputs and outputs, which have designated volume controls.
At the rear end of the mixer are two microphone inputs. These can also be switched to line level for use with wireless mics. Additionally, there are settings for the mic that can be modified through the knobs on top of the mixer and an echo button.
Performance And Mixer Effects
Instead of a touchscreen, which we find in the Seventy Two, the Seventy has an OLED display. Additionally, there are flex effects namely: delay, brake, echo, phaser, flanger, and reverb. These effects can blend well by using the auto BPM detection mode, the time scroll knob, or the TAP button.
One thing that is unique about the Seventy is the instant doubles button. These can be used in a variety of creative ways. They can toggle sync, produce an instant double, and can be used for silent cues. Another thing to take note of is the loop section, which allows for better creative mixing.
As for the layout, quality, and features, the Rane Seventy is really a great choice. This is a great upgrade to what is currently available in the market today. It is also simple enough and not overly technical or complicated like its predecessor.https://www.studiodelphin.com/rane-takes-control-back-with-the-rane-seventy-battle-mixer/https://www.studiodelphin.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Rane-Battle-Controller-Front.jpghttps://www.studiodelphin.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Rane-Battle-Controller-Front-150x150.jpgDJ Gearbattle mixer,dj mixer,Rane SeventyRane 70 Battle Controller It has been a long wait for those who are looking forward to Rane releasing another battle mixer that could take the lead.
