It’s a great time for DJ technology, with more options than any other time in history for creative performance.  PLAYdifferently’s MODEL 1 mixer is a unique machine for today’s creative professionals.  

Engineered by Andy Rigby Jones (former lead designer at Allen & Heath) and co-designed by Richie Hawtin, the MODEL 1 is a purely analogue mixer with six fully featured input channels, plus two stereo returns.  It boasts unique features such as analogue overdrive on every input, a balanced main mix bus (typically only found on high end studio consoles), and studio grade 60mm faders.

Released in May of this year, the MODEL 1 has already garnered the respect of many world-class artists. In his new video, Richie Hawtin gives a detailed look at how he personally uses the MODEL1.
