The Urei 1601S Digital Scratch Mixer with Sampler is packed with unique features: two 32-beat, 24-bit assignable samplers with footswitch, hi-pass filter to instantly remove turntable rumble and an aural exciter to boost those tightly pressed vinyls and to accentuate your scratches. Built to last with fully replaceable faders and knobs and reverse/curve adjust on all faders.

DJ-friendly features
The 1601S is a two-channel performance mixer with a clean, open fader section for quick maneuvers; 360-degree customizable phono line switches; crossfader monitor selector; backlit headphone out with EQ; ultraclear input and output level monitoring LEDs; full cut hi, mid, low EQ rotary pots; send and return fx loop; non-wear anodized top plate; and many more DJ-friendly features.

Channel inputs
Stereo line and phono inputs are provided on unbalanced RCA phono connectors. A front panel mic/line input is supplied via a balanced XLR/jack combi connector, while a separate stereo line input is also available via rear panel unbalanced RCA phono connectors. An unbalanced insert point on 1/4" jack allows an external FX processor to be patched into the mic/line signal path.

Booth output
The Booth output is provided on both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA phono connectors, and is controlled by the master Booth level control. A "Mic Defeat" switch mutes the signal from the mic to the booth output to avoid feedback.

Master output
The Master output is provided on both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA phono connectors, and is controlled by the Master level control.

FX loop
The send-and-return FX loop is supplied on unbalanced RCA phono connectors, and works in conjunction with the top panel aux/FX level and routing controls.

Phones section
The front panel illuminated headphone output is supplied on both 1/4" jack and mini-jack connectors for total flexibility.

Power supply
The high-quality internal PSU is fed via an IEC mains inlet, allowing a detachable mains cable to be used. A cable retaining clip provides total cable security.

Sampler footswitch facility
Both sample banks can be triggered via external footswitches, connected to the 1601S via the supplied 1/4" jack sockets.
