Not content with only showing off the Mixars Primo, the first DJ controller from Mixars, they also presented the Mixars Quattro, a 4 channel fully featured Serato DJ mixer.
The eyecatcher here are obviously the 16 rgb colored performance pads, that offer control over your cues and samples. Not sure they can trigger other features though.

Apart from the 4 central effects (Filter, Noise, Gate and Crush) the mixer has 14 additional effects and a small LCD screen to check which effect is selected.
The Mixars Quattro is DVS enabled as it’s intended to use with Serato DJ DVS. It also has 2 USB inputs for easy DJ switchovers. On the back we find FX send and return and the usual input/output options.
After Mixars Duo launch last year this is another very competitive offering from Mixars. Four channels, 16 performance pads, FX send & return, 2 USB ports… that is a lot on offer for the asking price of USD 1.499. Combine that with DVS plug and play support and Mixars have got a remarkably complete product on their hands.
I will for sure be passing by the Mixars booth at Namm hoping there is a working unit I can get my hands on to try out, expect more details soon in this space.
The Mixars Primo is scheduled to be available spring 2017.
