Expanding Soundcraft’s UREI DJ mixer line, the new 1601E’s digital effects section has a core of five effects (filter, delay, pan, cutter and flanger), but with 25 combo presets in five banks for unique chained effects, such as a combination of filter, flanger and delay effects.
Effects can be individually assigned to each channel, with a bpm fx crossfader selecting the wet/dry blend. Two effect controls modulate key effects parameters, and there are five selectable effects speeds from 1/4 to 2/1. A separate 3-band (LF/MF/HF) isolator lets users choose which music frequencies pass through the effects section and a bpm analysis engine automatically synchs effects to the track bpm. Also standard are six inputs, the UREI Exciter, 3-band isolator EQ, headphone EQ and adjustable channel fader curves.
