Otherwise the two boards are the same, with 5 dual input stereo channels and 2 microphone input channels. Each channel has a 3-band kill EQ with its own gain control and level meter. Phono amps are built in to allow for the use of unamplified turntables. Beat matching is assisted by dual BPM counters that automatically detect the beats on two assignable channels. Mixing is handled with an Ultraglide fader on a VCA-controlled crossfader, and the curve is adjustable to match personal styles. Balanced, zone and subwoofer outputs are all included.
