Vestax introduced its PMC-280Pro, aimed at DJs who work in clubs and do other live music gigs.
It provides four channels and 16 effects with adjustable parameters. Features include a DSP effects unit with 24-bit 96 kHz sampling rate, and two control surface rotaries for adjusting two variable parameters for each effect.
The company says the 16 effects have algorithms designed for DJs. Effects include a ring modulator and vocoder, digital delay, echo, reverb, flanger and auto PAN; and low-, high- and band-pass filters. Digital connectivity is available via optional USB board on the PMC-280’s front.
Additional highlights include channel faders and the CF-PCV cross fader, which Vestax says is for smooth mixing and “lightning-fast” DJ battles. Each channel comes with a three-band isolator EQ. Ten inputs are provided including six line, two phono and two mic, and the output section features two individually controlled RCA stereo outputs and XLR outputs on master.
