Just a quick update.
I have just taken delivery of the brand new DJ Tech DIF-1S mixer. For those of you who are wondering what this is, it is a brand new entry level scratch mixer with a mini innofader inside. The reason it’s so interesting is that it costs just £99 / $199. Crazy!
The most important part of any scratch mixer is the fader and the innofader is renowned for its quality performance.
I hooked it up alongside my Rane TTM57 and have given it a 15 minute side by side comparison.
I will be doing a video to show this but so far I can tell you that I am blown away. The fader feels really very nice, maybe even smoother than the Rane. I can do all the scratches I normally do on the Rane and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. The cut in point of the fader is slightly longer on the DJ Tech DIF-1S, but nothing major.
People always ask me which scratch mixer to buy when they are on a budget and up till now the choices haven’t been vast. Now I can safely say that this is the way to go.
Stay tuned for further updates and videos. Make sure you sign up below to get on the mailing list and be notified of new articles.
Please note that I do not do paid reviews, I bought this mixer with my own money and am giving you an honest insight.
