Pioneer DJM-T1
& Traktor Scratch 2, too.

Out of the box the new Pioneer DJM-T1 2-Channel Traktor Mixer delivers all the quality you'd expect from the legendary DJM series. Bundled and premapped with Traktor's Scratch Duo 2, the DJM-T1 also offers effortless control over title searching, cuing effects, fading, looping and more. The result is a complete analog/digital solution -- a traditional 2-channel DJ mixer and MIDI controller, all in one rugged unit.

Standout features include:

  • Built-in USB soundcard removes the need for an external audio interface and enables the T1 to connect straight to computer via a single USB cable.

  • The DJM-T1 inherits the high-quality audio characteristics of the Pioneer DJM-900nexus and DJM-2000 mixers. Analogue and digital circuits are separated, and analogue inputs are converted to digital over the shortest possible distance, thereby reducing unwanted noise. A 24-bit D/A converter provides the sound quality for the master output and the built-in booth output too.

  • New channel faders on the DJM-T1 promise to be smoother and more durable than ever before, thanks to two metal shafts supporting the fader knobs. The cross fader is an exclusive Pioneer magnetic invention, capable of 10 million crossfades and features all the essential tweaks for today's scratch DJ: lag, tension, curve and reverse functions. Both the cross and channel faders feature Pioneer's new P-Lock caps that are impossible to pull off in use.

  • Along with the bundled software, the DJM-T1 also comes replete with timecode vinyl and CDs; all you need for a fully functioning DVS system is to connect your CDJs or turntables to the T1.

In short: Groundbreaking Pioneer quality and reliability paired with the exciting new features of the Traktor 2 software. Verdict: Winner.

Priced at or around $1599.00

The Menace to Sobriety

The Menace to Sobriety
Tampa Bay's Video Visionaries Look Ahead

What began as more or less a hobby for Tampa IT security guru Mitch Mitchem and partner Chris (DJ Roach) Lutz is, all indicators suggest, going viral. The duo, better known to their many YouTube and SoundCloud fans as Menace to Sobriety, is quickly making a name for themselves as remixers of renown and the authors of a one-of-a-kind video experience.

Building upon backgrounds that merge tech with techno (both profess big love for Tampa Bay's prototypical EDM artists Rabbit In The Moon and all things digital), Menace To Sobriety's synergistic blend of house, breaks, remixes, mash-ups and visuals has to be seen to be experienced.
