Denon DJ, a leading manufacturer of premium-grade DJ equipment, introduces the DN-MC6000 Mixer and MIDI Controller, a four-channel/eight-source standalone digital DJ mixer with MIDI interface and internal sound card. With an astounding amount of features, real-time channel matrix operation, slim tabletop design, state-of-the-art solid steel chassis construction and quality sound, the DN-MC6000 is one of Denon DJ's flagship controllers. Also acting as an audio interface (with a 2 in/2out stereo soundcard included), the DN-MC6000, when paired with the user's software of choice, is a turnkey control solution for mobile DJs and party DJs, and a clear centerpiece to any DJ rig.

It comes bundled with Virtual DJ LE, Audio/Video/Karaoke mixing software in North/South America and Canada, and Native Instruments TRAKTOR LE for Europe and Asia. The DN-MC6000 is MIDI-mapable and compatible with other popular DJ programs. The unit interfaces seamlessly with Mac OSX and Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Unlike other comparable products, the DN-MC6000 has a selectable Video/Audio control cross fader feature. Each side of the unit can control up to two decks (for a total of four), with visible deck color change for intuitive, straightforward operation. Also notable is the fact that the DN-MC6000 is a real mixer, able to process audio inputs for external devices without a connection to a computer, as a dedicated mixer unit would.

Key features include rack-mountability (with included 19" rackmount accessory kit), a number of on-board MIDI effect controls, durable construction, intuitive layout, dual jog wheels, pitch fader, channel fader, cross fader and much more. The unit's Pitch/Fader/Volume lock function holds the last known Audio value and position until the NULL point is again reached. It is also easy for users to find where they are going, with the included File browse navigation keys and rotary encoder file selector knob with illuminated ring. Also featured are the unit's high-quality, high-output headphone amp, the independent 3-band Channel EQ with "Kills" (high-mid-low) and various Utility presets to customize user settings.

The Denon DN-MC6000 ushers in a new product category as an integrated, full blown mixer, and ‘dual deck" MIDI Controller. This flagship Mixer / MIDI Controller combines a 4-channel / 8-source standalone digital mixer - featuring real time channel matrix operation - USB MIDI control and 2 x stereo in / 2 x stereo out USB audio interface. A slim tabletop design with solid steel chassis, paired with the DJ software of choice, the DN-MC6000 is a complete turnkey control solution.

The DN-MC6000 is bundled with Native Instruments TRAKTOR LE and interfaces seamlessly with Mac OSX and Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Using the ‘dual layer" function, each side of the DN-MC6000 can control two decks (for a total of four) in TRAKTOR Pro, with visual deck colour change.

The mixer features 3-band Channel EQ with high-mid-low kills, on-board EFX, and a highly intuitive software controller layout. This has a newly designed high resolution 105-mm touch sensitive jog wheel, smooth 60-mm long 14-bit high resolution pitch slider, 45-mm channel and cross faders, eight (4 + 4) hot cue/sampler buttons with dual bank selector key, Auto Loop button with Beat Jump (loop cut), Manual Loop In/Out buttons, large size Cue & PLAY buttons, select and parameter controls for the on-board EFX, multiple GUI controls - Mixer, Video, Scratch, Sampler, REC, etc., file browse navigation keys and ring illuminated rotary encoder file selector knob, and Denon's legacy Pitch Bend keys with Vinyl and Pitch Bend Jog modes.

Inputs include two phono lines, one XLR Mic/quarter-inch and one quarter-inch microphone jack, and two phono AUX inputs. Outputs include balanced master XLR, unbalanced master phono, quarter-inch booth/send out, phono record out, and stereo headphone out. Also featured is a USB Audio in/out selectable routing switch.

Weaknesses

 

Lack of pro range, no notoriety among pro DJs

No analog mixer, 4-Mx is dedicated to computer DJing

No impressive jog wheels in this price range

Jog wheels are at a distance from the cross fader, so quite far from the DJ's hands

 

 

Crowded controls, low space between all transport buttons

 

 

 

Complicated navigation

 

 

 

Buttons on front panel: risk of damage during transport

*This mechanical type of detection in the controller works under all conditions and eliminates the kind of interference that can disturb electrical detection: an electrical touch sensor can be interrupted by static electricity, or by lighting truss systems, carpeting or shoes which electrically insulate the DJ.
