The DJ Tech DIF-1S is a professional DJ scratch mixer featuring the all new Mini Innofader crossfader from Audio Innovate.

As a sponsor of DMC’s online battle in 2012, DJ Tech wanted to address the needs of scratch DJs, and the DIF-1S has been designed to offer the perfect balance of features, quality, compactness and value for money.

Mini Innofader

The DIF-1S is fitted as standard with Audio Innovate’s new Mini-Innofader. Building upon the foundation of the industry’s favourite crossfader, the Mini Innofader offers a 4 million cycle long life, as well as a user adjustable cut-in distance and reverse switch. The DIF-1S is also fully compatible with the full-sized Innofader in all 3 fader positions.

“We went right back to basics” said Alessio Foti, DJ Tech’s Technical and Marketing Director.  “At a time when 2 channel mixers are becoming increasingly complex and expensive, we realized that all a turntablist really needs is a good crossfader in a box – and that’s exactly what the DIF-1S is”.

Timecode Mode

Addressing the digital age where DVS systems like Traktor and Serato Scratch Live are commonplace, the DIF-1S also features a dedicated Timecode switch on each channel, which allows seamless changeover between DVS systems with no interruption to the music.

Alessio Foti has this to say – “there are many different methods out there to handle this, but we feel that this is a highly effective implementation that enables DJs to choose between phono, line or DVS“.

Rugged and Compact

Scratch mixers need to be tough. And with a heavy gauge faceplate and metal controls nutted onto the chassis, the DIF-1S is built to last. The small frame adds to the feel of quality and makes it highly portable and easy to fit into any setup.

The DIF-1S isn’t just for turntablists. As a fully featured 2-channel mixer, the DIF-1S features the following:

  • RCA inputs with switchable line/phono control per channel
  • Separate DVS RCA inputs
  • Separate RCA CD inputs per channel
  • 3-band EQ
  • 1/4″ Mic input with volume control
  • 6.35mm and 3.5mm headphones outputs
  • Master and booth outputs with separate volume controls
  • LED meters with PFL/master switch
  • Ground post for turntable input

Price and Availability

The DJ Tech DIF-1S will be shipping in February with a suggested retail price of $149 / €129 / £99.
