On a new episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx gives the first review of Mixars’ latest big product, the QUATTRO. Unveiled last January, the QUATTRO is a four-channel club mixer designed for Serato DJ. It has 16 dedicated RGB pads for cue, loop, and sample controls, and two USB ports for easy DJ changeovers. It also serves as the big brother to the Italian manufacturer’s DUO battle mixer. There are a lot of good 4-channel club mixers in the market. Does the Quattro standout? Watch above to find out.
