The company’s latest rotary model “provides everything needed with nothing else added.”
Last year’s NAMM conference saw Washington state’s finest Rane unveil their latest rotary mixer model in the shape of the MP2015, a rather attractive wood-framed four-channel model that was designed with consultation from a stellar range of selectors including Tim Sweeney, Ben UFO, Oliver Hafenbauer and Anthony Parasole. This year’s edition of NAMM sees Rane add to their rotary range with the unveiling of the MP2014 two-channel mixer which can be seen as a scaled down companion to its big brother, carrying almost all of the same features (the sub-mix channel has been discarded) but at a much more affordable price.
Tailored specifically for the “discerning perfectionist DJ who only needs two channels but requires the utmost in technology, simplicity, reliability and portability,” the MP2014 is projected to cost around £1,999 according to DJ Tech Tools, though no release date has been set yet. Some of the standout features to transfer down to this two-channel model from the MP2015 include a high resolution isolator with adjustable crossover, for playing with the master out, high-resolution beautiful-sounding filters that switch between high pass, low pass, and Dual (bandpass), studio quality phono preamps, and of course the overall design. A detailed run-down of the MP2014 features is available over at the Rane site.
Rane will retail the MP2014 for approximately £2000 however a release date is yet to be disclosed.
