This 10" mixer has a universal internal power supply (which accepts 100-240 VAC or 50/60 Hz power), which means that you can power it anywhere without the use of an adapter. There also multiple input options for the Empath, meaning that you can use XLR, TRS or RCA connectors. The Auto-Gain feature of this mixer keeps the settings level when you are switching between sources, so that there are no unexpected jumps in sound. The FlexFX feature of the Empath is a post-fader stereo effects loop, designed for adding external effects like reverb. There are individual Dry/Wet pan controls for each of the three channels as well as the mic input, so that you can be precise about the effects in your sound. The Flash-Cue feature of the Empath allows you to switch between crossfader A and crossfader B with the flick of a switch. In promotion, Rane emphasizes the fact that the Empath will perform well for all DJ genres, including techno, hip-hop and reggae. There are four color options available for the Rane Empath DJ mixer, including Grandmaster Flash Signature Gold.
