The Rane MP 2016a is a rotary-controlled audio DJ mixer with 6 input channels. It also has booth and house outputs, pre-effects tape outputs, post-effects tape outputs with level control, switchable effects loop, and headphone cueing. The Rane mixer's input channels 1 through 4 feature high quality RIAA phono preamplifiers which may be switched to line input via rear panel switches. Input channels 5 and 6 each provide a balanced mic preamp with input gain trim, mic/line switch, two-band EQ, mic engage switch and an internal booth ducking enable jumper. In addition to the six dedicated preamplifiers, all 6 input channels on the Rane MP 2016a rack mixer may select any of the five stereo auxiliary inputs.

Each input channel on the Rane DJ mixer provides a 6-position source selector, input gain control for matching levels, signal/overload indicators and a studio-grade master mix control.

The booth output may select master or cue as its source. An ultra-low noise, high power headphone amplifier also allows monitoring the master mix or cue mix.

Rane's MP 2016a improves on the original MP 2016 by adding split cue. Individual cue switches on each channel drive a panning master/cue control for the headphone output.

The master mix circuit provides signal/overload indicators, mono switch and high-pass/rumble filters. In addition, the master output features patent-pending, high-performance 3-band, full-cut, accelerated-slope tone controls.

The MP 2016a provides exceptional ergonomics, good feel and a clean, intuitive layout packaged in a compact 19", 3U rackmount chassis, a scant 5" deep.

So you say,"Great, but to accommodate the diverse needs of all DJ mixing styles, I need dedicated high performance three-band, full-cut, Accelerated-Slope tone controls for each of the six Input Channels, high-performance Active-Crossfader with full range contour control, A-Post-B crossfader assign switches and a stereo, 10-segment, peak dBu Master/Cue meter with peak hold; all without effecting the ergonomics of my classic rotary mixer."

Rane has you covered! With the flip of a switch on the MP 2016a front panel, you can engage the DJ mixer's optional XP 2016a External Processor and acquire all of these features.

Excellent price, this rotary mixer is accurate and transitions smoothly between sources. The 3 band EQ on each channel is a compliment to any mix.

Comments about Rane MP 2016S 6-Channel Rotary Mixer:

Sound quality is the best, user simplicity is the best, and look at it...IT'S KNOBS!!! NOT SLIDERS!!! That drunk chick that spills a drink on your mixer...That unexpected cloud at your outside gig that rains on the wedding...DOESN'T KILL your event. DJ's, it has TWO XLR inputs for mic's! Who has that!?? The idiot makes a toast that bombs, that singer that sucks, you cut them and keep your mic up the entire time to save the BOMBING of your event or you have a second mic if the client needs to talk... Can't say enough great stuff about it! Best money I have ever spent. I used to invite DJ's into my booth to mix on Sunday nights because their club was dude spilled an entire Margarita on this mixer. HE FELT LIKE AN IDIOT...NOT A PROBLEM, wiped it off and kept going.
