Ahead of this years NAMM conference Mixars have launched a brand new 4 channel mixer called QUATTRO and a 2 channel controller called PRIMO.

MIXARS PRIMO – 2 Channel Controller

Primo Two-Channel Controller

Called the Primo, it follows similar design cues as the Quattro but offers even more performance features for Serato DJ. Instead of the four performance pads per channel seen on the Quattro, each of the Primo’s channels feature eight RGB pads. Costing just $599, Primo represents serious value for DJs wanting to use the full version of Serato DJ.

We see this as a pretty direct angle for Mixars – trying to offer a comparable feature set to the DDJ-SR, which Pioneer DJ has yet failed to upgrade for the year. 

Utilizing Mixars DVS experience, the Primo also offers Serato DVS upgrade ready capabilities, making it one of the most affordable DVS-capable controllers. Another interesting thing about the Primo is its asymmetrical layout mirroring modular gear with two identical “player” sections flanking the central mixer.

The Primo will be available later this year (Q2) costing $599.

MIXARS QUATTRO – 4 Channel Mixer

Mixars Quattro Four-Channel Mixer

The mixer, called the Quattro, takes much of the features found on their popular Duo mixer released a year ago and adds two additional channels. The DVS capable mixer has four full-EQ channels with a fifth vertical fader for the Serato SP-6 sampler and four channel instant effects (Noise, Filter, Gate, and Crush).

At the edge of the mixer are 8 RGB performance pads with four assigned per deck and rotary knobs that either control track loading or trigger auto loops. DJ switchovers seem straightforward with the Quattro’s twin USB ports located at the top of the unit. Interestingly, the mixer appears to have built-in effects in addition to the Serato software effects, suggesting this mixer could be easily used by non-software DJs.

According to Mixars, the Quattro will be available later this year for $1499.
