The DXM01 is for purist users.
With Subbass Synthesis with Intensity Control, the DXM01 can bring

layout, the DXM01 virtually eliminates inadvertent operation of
secondary controls, helping turntablists and other aggressive DJs
achieve the ultimate performance 'zone'. With an estimated street
price of $169.00, the DXM01 will be the company's lowest priced
24-bit digital mixer.
The DXM03 incorporates a realtime
multiband 12 column spectral display with different display modes
(Master L/R, Master L+R, Ch1/Ch2), which helps DJs recognize and
control tonal variances in the source signal, independently of what's

Techno DJs seeking realtime visual analysis of what's happening in
their mix. The mixer has an estimated street price of $199.00.

digital effects (Flanger, Echo, Tape Echo, 2x Copy, Phaser, and

and response, a reverse switch and continuous rotary slope control, 2
