Akai Serato Mixer, Built In Audio Interface
The new Akai AMX lets you get hands on with Serato DJ. AMX offers control over two decks within Serato DJ and features high quality faders, touch activated knobs and buttons.
The AMX features a mini-Innofader with an adjustable curve, and can interface with turntables using Serato NoiseMap (DVS) or with HID players, something that will surely interest turntablists and scratch DJs. The Akai AMX also features a built in headphone output and a master output for easy connection to existing systems.
The full version of Serato DJ software is also included with the AMX, professional DJ software trusted by performers the world over. If you already own Serato DJ simply connect the AMX and you are ready to go.
The AMX has two sets of audio inputs which can be switched between line and phono levels. These inputs will also accept time code signal so you can use turntables or CD players to control the virtual decks within the software (Serato DVS expansion pack and time code vinyl required). Until now such systems have come with a hefty price tag, the AMX brings unrivalled flexibility at this price point and offers a rock solid solution that will allow you to get the best from your digital music collection.
The AMX features a mini-Innofader which is renowned amongst the scratch community for it's incredible, smooth response and it's durable build quality. There is also an adjustable curve control and a reverse switch for those that prefer to scratch 'hamster style'.
The EQ and filter knobs on the AMX are responsive and durable but they also have a hidden trick up their sleeve. Activate the 'touch' mode and they become touch sensitive, the EQ pots become kill switches allowing you to mute an entire frequency band with a simple tap.
The AMX is incredibly versatile and manages to cram a load of professional features into a compact unit. The inbuilt studio-grade audio interface supports sample rates up to 96kHz, 24 bit. The AMX could be just the solution you are looking for, whether it is at the heart of your DVS setup or as a compact and portable controller.
