Overview

Versatile 3-channel, 10" format DJ mixer. Durable Lexan top plate. Universal internal power supply accepts 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60Hz power, for use anywhere in the world without adapters. Auto-gain prevents performance-wrecking swings in program level when changing sources. The music is never too soft or clipped. FlexFX is a post-fader external stereo effects loop with individual dry/wet pan controls for mic and input channels 1, 2, and 3.

Smooth, accurate and reliable mixing is made possible by employing the most respected name in audio faders, Penny & Giles. 2 kinds of fader caps are provided for different mixing preferences: soft rubber caps for smooth mixing and hard plastic caps for fast mixing. Flash-Cue allows the DJ to rapidly select Crossfader A-Cue-sum or Crossfader B-Cue-sum with the flick of a switch, a normally slow and complicated operation on other mixers.

Nothing is more frustrating than arriving at a club and finding their jacks don't match. House systems may have XLR, TRS, or RCA connectors. The Empath provides all 3. Low and high headphone tone controls allow the DJ to match their mixer to their headphones. Both 1/8" and 1/4" headphone jacks are simultaneously usable.

2 assignable CD triggers work with any CD player with fader-start ability. Accelerated-slope, full-cut, 3-band tone controls are the most flexible and highest quality available. Crossfader assign switches allow any input channel to be mixed on the A-side, B-side, or post crossfader. Level meters show stereo cue, stereo master mix, split cue, or main output signals. The Auto-Gain circuit is a built-in 3:1 ratio compressor, keeping your levels consistent. All of these features are wrapped in the smallest, most portable chassis of any 3-channel mixer. Excellent control ergonomics allow this small package to feel as open and comfortable as much larger units.

The best 3-channel mixer period!

By chexican

from Denver, CO

Comments about Rane Empath Touring/Club Mixer:

My Empath is a little over 4 years old now, and nothing I've owned prior has held up like this Rane has. Sound quality and fader performance is as good as brand new and held up with a few house parties and many hours scratching. The Linkwritz-Riley type eqs sound amazing without distortion even when maxed out, The phono preamps also provide a really clean, low noise floor level sound perfect for vinyl recording.

The Cream of Scratch Mixers.

By Shawn Kahl

from eugene, or

Comments about Rane Empath Touring/Club Mixer:

There is a lot of hype today about what scratch style mixer claims the throne. Many top-notch companies have thrown in their bids, and the Rane Empath is definately a contender for the crown. Designed by the legendary Grand Master Flash, the industrial strength Empath mixer is fit to join the legacy of its creator. The Rane Empath comes stocked with three channels of stunning audio quality, each equipped with linear faders that are seriously smooth, a sensible eq switching mechanism located front and center on the face, and eq pots that make mixing a breeze. The resistance-adjustable cross-fader can be tailored to even the most of discerning Dj's, and the sophisticated cueing system leaves more time for you to pay attention to whats really important: tight mixes and hot tracks.
