Stanton M.207 Mixer - Scratch Perverts
Stanton’s new M.207 mixer caters for the scratch DJs and turntablists out there.
Stanton is a household name among DJs, but it has been a while since they took a foray into the scratch mixer market. Well, all that’s changing thanks to the arrival of their new Stanton M.207 mixer. The mixer that vinyl junkies and turntablists have been waiting for, the M.207 mixer is for the vinyl purists and CD junkies who are shunning the laptop revolution in favour of old school turntablism. Scratch friendly features include individual control settings for each fader (including the crossfader) such as curve and reverse, while the long-throw faders, balanced outputs and FX would make any bedroom or club DJ happy.
Users of Stanton’s DaScratch Midi Controllers will know just how responsive Stanton’s FXGlide touch sliders are. One of these is located bang in the middle of the M.207 mixer and provides sensitive real-time control.
One slight criticism is that the integrated FX on the M.207 are a bit limited in terms of effects compared to other mixers out there. That said, most of the commonly used effects are covered and include phase/flange, echo/strobe, pan/transformer and filters. What is really interesting and quite clever about the effects on the M.207 is that they can be applied to three specific frequency bands without affecting the other frequencies via buttons located at the top of the effects control section.
To make things even more interesting, automatic BPM detection (which can also be the set manually) means the M.207 has seven beat-synchronised effects. Also found under the hood of the M.207 is a phrase and loop sampler with slots for up to five different loops or samples. The in-built sampler also makes use of the auto/manual BPM setting to make slicing up loops and triggering them an absolute breeze.
