Mixars have been really busy of late and today I had a chance to check out the Mixars Primo. I already reported on the controller but seeing it for real changes the perception a bit… for the better.
As I said in my previous article, the Primo is for me a very, very interesting Serato DJ controller.
Two things stand out:
- The mixer is hardware, and it comes with its own set of effects, including an echo on the mic.
- The build quality looks (behind glass, unfortunately) to be very good, so this should be a controller that can take at least a bit of a beating.
In the video you will see Tobias from Mixars take us through a few of the key features. I took the risk of bringing up my DDJ-SR/RR comparison and he didn’t seem too offended 🙂
As a quick reminder if you are too lazy to jump to the previous article, the key specs:
- 2-channel Controller for Serato DJ
- Serato DJ enabled
- Serato DVS Upgrade Ready
- 16 RGB Performance Pads for control over Hot Cues, Roll, Slicer, Sampler

That is a lot of features for such a compact controller, right? I insisted that when the time to launch arrives
