Rane Seventy-Two MKII doesn’t disappoint

If you are on the hunt for a feature-loaded 2-channel Serato mixer then look no further than the Rane Seventy-Two MKII DJ Mixer.

With the release in 2017 of their legendary tabletop battle mixer the MKI, Rane has gone on to prove that nobody does it better in this space. Building upon the success of the original, the Rane Seventy-Two MKII again delivers a premium 2-channel advanced mixer but with the addition of a load of top end features all wrapped up in a unit that pushes the user to new levels of mixing. As you would expect from a mixer with this pedigree it again nails all the basics. Although, even with the addition of the many new features, it never feels intimidating or overly complex.

Probably the most important part of any battle mixer are the faders, and the Seventy-Two MKII doesn’t disappoint. With three ultra-light Mag Four faders on board (which indecently are silky smooth) this potentially makes it the best in the business! There is also an external crossfader tension adjust for that perfect custom feel.

There are 16 Akai Professional MPC-Style pads all with independent mode controls allowing you to trigger samples and other effects.

At the centre of it all is a 4.3-inch, full-colour touchscreen sitting between the two channels. When connected to Serato DJ, you can browse and select tracks, view waveforms, and control a host of other features.

There are two USB type B ports for connecting the device to two computers running DJ software and two USB type A ports to connect other devices – so two DJ's can perform simultaneously and handover effortlessly.

With solid steel casing and aluminium paddles it offers the ultimate in durability making it an ideal companion for life on the road.

Rane has been head and shoulders above the rest of the pack when it comes to battle and scratch mixers so whatever your level of DJ expertise, you will find using the Seventy-Two MKII a real treat. Even if you are looking for a knockout second hand unit, you can be safe in the knowledge that it has probably stood up to whatever it has had thrown at it!
