So I've got the decks now.....what are the good mixers these days
My last mixer was a Vestax PMC15 for me the sale point was easy removal x fader, transform scratching buttons and you could put 3 decks though it ( only did this once when my mate brought one of his round)
From what I've seen nowadays you've got fx's buttons, bpm counters (wtf?), scratch mixers
Do scratch mixers have a better xfade?

So much choice now it’s hard to know where to start.

I’d maybe think how many channels you want, do you want it DVS enabled (Serato, Traktor, recordbox) and budget then you can narrow down the options.

If you big on scratching you can most likely buy a “innofader” and fit it to your mixer - these are the best x-faders about and are easily fitted n replaced👍

Er er....wtf is dvs & serato? o_O
I like the ides of the removable xfade...as I always found it was the 1st thing to go, I was never a heavy scratcher more sorta old skool hip hop.
Back in the day when I used to mix (88-95) , I was more along the lines of 'Richy Fingers' I like to be busy always doing stuff rather than just nod my head lining up the next mix.

I've run a similar path to yourself by the sounds of it. I started in the late 80's, 1210's & a Numark by 1990, but then slowly started to back off in 1998 when Bugged Out @ Sankeys shut. I stopped going out & buying vinyl by 2000 and went off to start a business.....
Then in 2014 i started to buy a few tunes and set my decks back up, my old Numark mixer was long gone though. I replaced it with an Allen & Heath Xone 23C two channel with a USB port & INNO fader. great kit!
Strictly vinyl only, for life (y)

For the price its a tidy little peice of kit, sounds great, really well made with a few toys on it. Also has a USB port so you can record on to your laptop via Audacity, for those weird mates that don't accept D90's anymore ;)

Ive got the Allen & Heath Xone 22, I dont think they make it anymore, the sound is really great from it, its quite basic but does have the VCF filter system.
I cant remember what I paid for it now, but I would say I deffo got good value for what I paid..


The only thing is it would of been nice to have a power on/off switch on the unit its self, I think they now have put one on the 23&23c, apart from that its been perfect for me.

I would deffo reccomend Allen & Heath has a brand, I know quite a few people who have the brand and ive not really heard anyone moan about them.
