MODEL 1 is a performance instrument providing new creative possibilities to artists, and empowering them to PLAYdifferently.

A mixer of uncompromising build quality, intuitive tactile controls and beautifully warm analog circuitry, MODEL 1 is engineered by Andy Rigby-Jones and co-designed by Richie Hawtin, with two years of testing, insight and refinement with artists, clubs and engineers from across the electronic music community.

MODEL 1 has a unique offering of six fully featured input channels plus two stereo returns in a small format frame. It has many features not currently available on any comparable device, such as Input pre-amplifier drive control, hybrid filter/swept bell EQ, dual cue system, dual mixer linking system, and a fully balanced Tascam DB25 connector system.

2 Stereo Returns

Two basic stereo channels for use as return inputs from external effects processors or other sources. Each return features TRIM to adjust the return signal, input DRIVE circuit, and CUE routing to both Cue A and Cue B. Each Return also feature Metering for visual feedback of the signal level, a rotary LEVEL fader to adjust Mix amount and combined Return 1-2 Low Cut EQ and Master Filter routing.

3 High Performance Phono Preamps

3 high performance turntable inputs, optimized for the club environment in order to minimize the tonal imbalance between vinyl and Digital audio, and to eliminate sub frequency feedback. Each phono input has it's own Individual Turntable Earth Binding for greater flexibility.

Precision Sculpting EQ

SCULPT is a semi-parametric swept bell filter, and consist of two controls,FREQ which sets the centre frequency and CUT/BOOST which adjust the gain or an attenuation at this frequency. The level of cut/boost is asymmetric; maximum boost is limited to +8dB, while the cut is extended to -20dB. Sculpt has a wide Q and a frequency range that covers almost seven octaves.

Contouring Low And High Pass Filters

As the name implies these two controls allow you to contour the frequency range of the audio signal. They consist of low Q, High-Pass and Low-Pass filters designed not to add color to the sound as they are swept across their frequency range.

DualCue

Two independent Cue systems, A and B. Cue A routes to the right hand side headphone monitor and the Cue B routes to the left hand headphone monitor. The DualCue system makes it much easier for two DJs to perform on the mixer together in Back2Back setups, as each can select a separate channel to monitor without interfering with the other. This feature also assists DJ's handing off to each other in a smooth and natural way.

ZERO Crossing Circuitry

All internal routing utilizes our zero-crossing detection system that helps minimize audio switching artifacts for channel filter selection, master filter on/off and master eq on/off. This system allows each of these functions to be used quickly and intuitively as performance effects.

Quality Components

Beautifully smooth components each controlling one specific function for intuitive on-the-fly creative performances.

External Power Supply

Powered by an external 90W 24V universal voltage PSU. Internally, the 24 volts from the external supply, is converted to just under +/- 20V for the analogue power rails by using high frequency switching technology, giving MODEL 1 some of the highest signal headroom of any professional mixer, irrespective of its application.

Dual PSU

MODEL 1 offers the utility of powering with dual supplies. This feature - found on premium live sound and recording consoles - can offer greater security by powering the mixer simultaneously with a second supply. In scenarios such as music festivals, each supply can be powered from separate mains phases.
