Rane TTM 56S
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Compact design tucks into a storage compartment or in a crate with the rest of your gear. Controls are simple and obvious, no trick to them. Heavy-duty construction for years of use without a problem.
The Cons:Hard to see it in the dark, need to have a good memory of the controls.
The Rane TTM 56S is a mid-priced DJ mixer. Rane promotes this mixer as the world's most popular performance mixer. The universal internal power supply, a common feature on Rane's mid to premium offerings, allows you to plug this mixer in anywhere you can find a 100-240 VAC outlet.

There are four inputs on the Rane TTM 56S, and each input has a Phono/Line switch, which means that you can plug in four turntables or four CD players at the same time. The TTM 56S has Kill switches that allow you to shut off a frequency on a dime. Each of the three magnetic faders (crossfader and two channel faders) has a Reverse switch and independent Contour control, which is continously adjustable. Rane emphasizes the fact that the text on the TTM 56S is readable in black light, a key feature if you intend to use this mixer for live performance. The TTM 56S has many of the same specs as the high end 57SL, except that the 57SL has eight inputs in total, can handle XLR connectors, and is equipped with Serato Scratch Live vinyl emulation software.
