Through support and innovation, Gemini have helped DJs grow since the 1970s. And after decades of evolution, Gemini's FirstMix USB DJ Controller offered the most intuitive digital DJ solution ever, providing aspiring DJs with a practical feature-set that helped them learn and refine the necessary skills. Now, Gemini have designed a controller to help them take the next step: the FirstMix I/O. Featuring a built-in soundcard and rotary pitch control, the FirstMix I/O picks up where the FirstMix left off, taking functionality a few steps further.
The FirstMix I/O interfaces with your PC or Mac via a standard USB connection, so you can easily use the included MixVibes Cross LE software to choose songs from your existing collections, even your iTunes Library. Offering an impressive level of control, the MixVibes Cross LE acts as a natural complement to the FirstMix I/O hardware with integrated iTunes browsing, automatic BPM detection and manual/auto beat loop capabilities. You can even use the software to record your mixes then share your creations on SoundCloud or Facebook.
Thanks to its clever design, the FirstMix I/O lets you easily navigate folders and tracks using the Browse function. Once a file's been loaded, use the touch-sensitive jog wheels to simulate the effect of scratching or alter the pitch of a track. For a natural, familiar feel, the FirstMix I/O employs the popular setup of 2 decks and a mixer. The central mixer section provides independent trim and 2-band EQ for each deck, allowing you to tweak the gain, treble and bass for individual tracks. The FirstMix I/O also offers a variety of effects, which can be incorporated for additional creativity. After all, giving your mixes that extra unique flavor helps set your performances apart.
To help you become familiarized with the arsenal of functions used by world-renowned DJs, the FirstMix I/O features a built-in soundcard with separate master and headphone outputs to preview and cue your tracks before you drop them. And for enhanced command over beat matching, the unit also sports rotary pitch control. But if you want to match the tempos of your tracks quickly and effortlessly, the Sync function gives you the ability with one-touch operation.
Even if you're a veteran DJ seeking a portable digital solution for parties and impromptu performances, the FirstMix I/O gives you a lightweight, highly functional option. Set the mood at any event and get your friends dancing! With the FirstMix I/O and a laptop, you have everything you need to craft a spontaneous DJ set.
