PLAYdifferently Releases MODEL 1.4 – Four Channel Analogue DJ Mixer

Introducing the MODEL 1.4

Four years after the launch of the acclaimed and award-winning MODEL 1 DJ mixer. PLAYdifferently have returned with a smaller, more compact four channel mixer. Engineered by Andy Rigby-Jones (Union Audio) and co-designed by Richie Hawtin the PLAYdifferently MODEL 1.4 builds upon feedback from artists, clubs and audio engineers.

PLAYdifferently Model 1.4

“With MODEL 1 we set out to build a new breed of DJ mixer, more akin to an instrument, with levels of control and quality that inspired creativity. We always felt a compact version would be welcomed in home studios and perfect for streaming. At a more affordable price, but with no compromise to the purity of design and components, this is a smaller format MODEL 1 with four channels, perfect for the home, as a compact club mixer, or as a nimble tour instrument.” – Richie Hawtin

Built in the UK by Allen & Heath, the 1.4  shares the original MODEL 1’s 100% analogue design. Key features include four stereo channels, two stereo send and return channels, two mix outputs and two high performance phono preamps. Each channel also has its own hi- and low-pass filters, precision SCULPT EQ and analogue overdrive circuit for ultimate control over the sound.
