When it comes to serious scratching and turntable wizardry, DJs absolutely love the Seventy's MAG Four faders. They're light and effortless to move, sliding smoothly at the slightest push. And if you think they're too light, don't worry — there's an external tension adjustment that lets you dial in the resistance you need.
The Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition also sports two sets of eight performance pads that let you get super-creative with your mix. And these aren't just any kind of pads — they're Akai Professional dual-layer MPC pads, so they're super-responsive and give you extra control over functions such as hot cueing, looping, sample triggering, and more. And with independent mode controls, switching between functions is fast and easy.
What do you expect from a DJ mixer? Whatever it is, you can expect to find it on the Rane Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition. First, you've got all the basics — only these don't sound basic at all, not once you get your hands on them. Let's start with the Seventy's 3-band EQ. This EQ is fast and easy to use, and since it's a Rane Isolator EQ, you can totally kill frequency bands for advanced mixing techniques. You get an OLED display, and there are also a pair of amazing die-cast aluminum effects paddles that feature full 180-degree rotation to give you access to even more performance options.
Speaking of effects, the Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition was born to tap into Serato DJ's extensive effects library. With six radio-style effects buttons and dedicated controls, dialing in effects takes zero menu diving. At the same time, you get dual dedicated loop sections to quickly set up complex beat juggling techniques, while Instant Double buttons are always at your fingertips.
One of the things that separates professional DJ gear from the rest is the quality and variety of I/O. In the case of the Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition, Rane outfitted this mixer with everything you could ask for. You've got RCA ins for line and phono, and separate phono grounds for both channels. XLR outs let you connect straight to any professional PA system, while XLR combo inputs let you connect mics via XLR or 1/4-inch cables.
But the Seventy's connections aren't done there. There are USB-A inputs for connecting Twelve controller hardware. The Seventy also features a pair of USB-B connections. This pair of connections is absolutely paramount for clubs and multi-DJ setups. Essentially, what you can do with these connections is hook up two laptops running Serato DJ at the same time, allowing DJs to hand off the mixer between sets, without stopping the music.
