PLAYdifferently Releases MODEL 1.4 – 4-Channel Analogue DJ Mixer.
Four years after the launch of the acclaimed and award-winning MODEL 1 DJ mixer, PLAYdifferently are bringing the same unrivalled analogue experience to MODEL 1.4, a compact 4- channel design with the same uncompromising approach. Engineered by Andy Rigby-Jones and co-designed by Richie Hawtin with feedback from artists, clubs and engineers, MODEL 1.4 features the attention to build quality and comprehensive feature set that put MODEL 1 in a class of its own. “With MODEL 1 we set out to build a new breed of DJ mixer, more akin to an instrument, with levels of control and quality that inspired creativity,” say Hawtin.
“We always felt a compact version would be welcomed in home studios and perfect for streaming. At a more affordable price, but with no compromise to the purity of design and components, this is a smaller format MODEL 1 with four channels, perfect for the home, as a compact club mixer, or as a nimble tour instrument.” With a price of $2,299/€2,199, MODEL 1.4 cuts no corners.
Built in the UK and sharing MODEL 1’s 100% analogue design, key features include four stereo channels, two stereo send and return channels, two mix outputs and two high performance phono preamps. Each channel also has its own hi- and low-pass filters, precision SCULPT EQ and analogue overdrive circuit. Just like MODEL 1, MODEL 1.4 also boasts two independent cue systems, D-Sub I/O for high end sound card integration and the Mixer Link system that allows multiple PLAYdifferently mixers to be linked together, giving you a truly scalable system to grow with your ambitions and not limit your creative possibilities.
“MODEL 1.4 remains true to our original concept of ‘DJ mixer as instrument’ and delivers it in compact, more affordable package. I can’t wait to see and hear how it’s going to inspire the current generation of DJs.”
