Behringer Announces DDM4000 – Digital DJ Mixer
Behringer has introduced the DDM4000, a 32-bit digital DJ mixer, packed with tons of features in a very un-ergonomic package. The 4000 is certainly not short on attributes with 4 stereo channels, each with fully programmable EQ and Kill switches, Multi-effects modules that can be synced to BPM, two BPM counters, and a digital crossfader with custom curve adjustment.
The 4000 also features a BPM-synced Sampler with real-time pitch control, loop and reverse functions. However, the biggest problem with this mixer is that its design is a mess. Like the almost completely unusable B-Control DeeJay BCD2000, Behringer must think that a DJ’s fingers are the size of an infants. However, this mixer is less than 500 beans, so who are we to nitpick…
