For a long time I’ve wanted a rotary mixer. I’ve got a Clubman at my office that I’ll never get rid of (it has a fader but the circuitry is Bozak quality- it makes the quietist album cut sound like the loudest cleanest 12”) but for my home set up I think it’s finally time to put my beat ass vestax to bed. The bulk of the rotary mixers are a couple thousand dollars which is a lot for a guy making tapes for himself, but now I’m seeing a lot of modified Xones pop up at a lower price point.
Is there a consensus price-conscious pick for rotary joints? I’m not trying to pretend I’m Danny Krivit, I just think the rotary style is far better suited to disco than a fader and I’m hoping there’s at least one mid-market rotary that people endorse.
