One of the most anticipated releases of 2017, PLAYdifferently's MODEL 1 is a performance instrument mixer that offers unique and powerful tools all controlled by a fully analog build. Unlike most, the MODEL 1 has six stereo channels, two stereo returns, re-engineered phono preamps, a brilliant frequency sculpting EQ... and no crossfader. Why? The idea is to combine both a DJ and studio mixer which offers not only classic mixing features but also to control various multi-layers of sound. Low/High contouring enable full sonic management and analog overdrive produces the irreplaceable warmth of real life circuitry. The MODEL 1 looks just as beautiful as it sounds and is the next evolution of mixer technology.
