Mojaxx Reviews PLAYdifferently MODEL 1.4 Mixer

A few years after the release of the MODEL 1, techno legend Richie Hawtin and the PLAYdifferently team are back with the MODEL 1.4. Like its predecessor, the MODEL 1.4 was engineered by Andy Rigby-Jones, the mastermind behind Allen & Heath’s XONE series.

The 100% analogue build features two high-performance phono preamps, studio-grade 60mm faders, and more. The Mixer Link feature, as the name implies, allows for multiple mixers to be connected.

The MODEL 1.4 is available now at a suggested price of $2,299. Check it out here and watch Mojaxx‘s review above.

Pioneer DJ has announced their latest two-channel battle mixer, the DJM-S7. The unit is geared toward open-format DJs, allowing a range of customization options to tailor the mixer to each individual’s performance style. It also comes in at a more affordable price point than Pioneer DJ’s other two-channel mixers.

The DJM-S7 has the 16 large performance pads (eight per channel) and Magvel fader their battle mixers are known for. Each channel’s pad modes are independent, meaning, for example, deck one’s pads can be set to trigger hot cues while deck two is set to the sample bank.

The effects section includes all 22 Beat FX from the DJM-S11, and the mixer also has Bluetooth connectivity for additional audio routing. Other features borrowed from the DJM-S11 (when used with Serato DJ Pro) are Scratch Bank, Gate Cue, and the aforementioned Combo Pad mode.

Loop MIDI, a new feature exclusive to the DJM-S7, allows DJs to use the effect levers to send MIDI messages to Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox, as a way to control performance features rhythmically.

Pioneer DJ’s DJM-S7 is available now at a suggested retail price of $1399 USD. Watch Mojaxx’s first look below.
