Ecler Hypes Overhauled Nuo5 For MusikMesse

Spanish equipment maker, Ecler, has begun hyping a new product for the MusikMesse show in Frankfurt by setting up a new website with an apocalyptic count down timer. Rumors are swirling online to what will actually premier. Some say a dedicated effects box, others target the DJ controller market. However, our guess is that with the current Nuo lineup getting a little long in the tooth, it will most likely be a new flagship DJ mixer that expands upon the Nuo feature set to compete head-on with Allen & Heath’s Xone:3D/2D, Korg’s Zero8, and other DJ mixer/controller hybrids.

Our best guess is that it will have at least 5 channels of analog I/O, dedicated digital controls, all knobs, faders and buttons will be able to send MIDI controller data, and hopefully some internal beat sync’d effects in addition to their unique pre/post fader Send/Return loop. It should also have a sophisticated, high-resolution internal soundcard, something we asked for in our Nuo4 review.

Include the silky Eternal Magnetic CrossFader from the HAK series, a well lit interface that can be seen in the darket of clubs, and the magical economical price point that Ecler achieved with the Nuo4, and they could steal the show.
