Northridge, CA (January 24, 2006)–Soundcraft has released a third model in its Urei 1601 DJ mixer range, the 1601E, which boasts a comprehensive digital effects section. The section is built around a core of five effects (filter, delay, pan, cutter and flanger), but also has a set of 25 combo presets in five banks that allow DJs access to a range of chained effects sounds.
For example, one preset could include a combination of filter, flanger and delay effects. The effects can be individually assigned to each channel, and a bpm fx cross-fader allows the DJ to select the desired blend of effect and original sound with a wet/dry mix.
Two effect parameter controls provide a way of modulating key parameters of each effect currently selected, plus there are five selectable effects speeds from 1/4 to 2/1. A separate 3-band isolator allows DJs to choose which frequencies of the music will pass through the effects section (LF, MID or HF).
