The Empath mixer
combines the vision of Grandmaster Flash and Rane technology. Compact
size, exceptional performance and advanced features set the Empath
mixer apart. The Empath is the most able 3-channel, 10" format
mixer available. The name implies: understanding, awareness and
sensitivity to the needs of DJs.
Only the Empath
The Empath mixer
meets the requirements of all DJ genres: trance · progressive
· techno · electro · jungle · breaks · funk
· hip hop · scratch · house · disco · drum
'n' bass · acid · live music · goa · dance hall
· freestyle · reggae · dub · garage · goa
· ambient · gabber · rap
finding power supply adapters is difficult. A universal, 100 to 240
VAC, 50/60 Hz internal power supply allows using the mixer anywhere
in the world. Auto-Gain prevents performance-wrecking swings in
program level when changing sources. The music is never too soft or
clipped. The FlexFX external effects loop with individual Dry/Wet pan
controls for Mic, Input Channels 1, 2 and 3, provides versatility for
the most demanding mixing styles. Smooth, accurate and reliable
mixing is made possible by employing the most respected name in audio
faders. Penny & Giles faders are simply the best money can buy.
Two kinds of fader caps are provided for different mixing
preferences: soft rubber caps for smooth mixing, and hard plastic
caps for fast mixing.
Cue selection for
a three-channel mixer can be slow and complicated. Flash-Cue allows
the DJ to rapidly select Crossfader A-Cue-sum or Crossfader B-Cue-sum
with the flick of a switch. Nothing is more frustrating than arriving
at a club and finding their jacks don't match. Systems may have XLR,
TRS or RCA connectors. The Empath provides all three. Two-band
headphone tone controls allow the DJ to match their mixer to their
headphones. More headphones are compatible with the Empath. It
provides both 1/8" and ¼" headphone jacks, which may
be used simultaneously. Two assignable CD triggers work with any CD
player with fader start ability.
Accelerated-Slope, full-cut, 3-band tone controls are the most
flexible and highest quality available. Crossfader assign switches
for each Input Channel allow any program to be mixed on the A-side,
B-side or Post crossfader.

All of these
features are wrapped in the smallest, most portable chassis of any
three-channel mixer. Excellent control ergonomics allow this small
package to feel as open and comfortable as much larger units.
