Pull up a chair, because we’ve got a lot of fresh new DJ Tech stuff to tell you about. So why not start right here with the all new DJ Tech DIF-4S. Last year’s NAMM saw DJ Qbert profess the original 2 channel DIF-1S as the best thing since sliced bread, so it was only a matter of time before a 4 channel version made an appearance. But it’s not just an extra 2 channels as the DIF-4S gets filters, effects, and more outputs.
Some more words from DJ Tech:
DJ Tech DIF-4S
- High performance 4-channel scratch DJ mixer
- 5 high-quality digital performance effects in studio quality
- Analogue filter for each Channel
- Integrated premium quality contactless Mini innoFADER as the crossfader
- XLR Master Out and RCA booth output with dedicated volume control
The DJ Tech DIF-4s is a professional 4 channel DJ scratch mixer with integrated Mini innoFADER from famous scratch fader manufacturer Audio Innovate.
Inherited from the original innoFADER, it provides smooth and robust feeling to the Scratch DJs.
The contactless design gives a long life of over 4,000,000 cycles!
The cut-in position can be adjusted by users with simple calibration steps to fit your taste and the Reverse switch allows you to do different style of scratch skill.
The mixer is also compatible with the original innoFADER for future upgrade.
The DIF-4s serves as a full-feature 4-channel mixer: 3-band EQ, mic input,Led level meter for each channel, XLR Output, both 6.35mm & 3.5mm headphones outputs, a Booth output with a dedicated volume control.
Each channel on the DIF-4s has its own dedicated 3-band isolator EQs and dedicated High-Pass/Low-Pass filters.
The DIF-4s provide 5 high-quality digital performance effects in studio quality.
What is the DJ Tech DIF-4S?
Apparently it’s a 4 channel scratch mixer, which given that the DIF-1S was a 2 channel scratch mixer, and the basic DNA is the same. As well as retaining the DVS channel switching on 2 channels, it does add some more mix friendly features, such as per channel filters and 5 effects including flanger, phaser, echo, pitchshifter and reverb. Yes they are basic, and the assignment is a single channel or the master with a wet/dry plus beat parameter adjustment, but given that the basic principle of effects is less is more, this should be more than enough for the target audience. And let’s not forget the proper master and booth output.
UPDATE: Projected price $309, which in the same market place is very favourable indeed.
Colour me impressed. We’ll be probing Signore Foti from DJ Tech once he lands in LA for NAMM.
