mixer and mixers
Here in europe i dont think we can say we had a good "rotary mixers" experiency,it really didn´t came out to be "fashionable" or even matter of talk until the Rane MP 2016 came out and ,and all this rotary "mania",going trhu history (Urei and bozak).
The main reason ,i think, was that both Urei and Bozak didnt enter in the European market,at least in a wider scale,everyone knew that NYC dj´s used rotary mixers ,but there werent any available here.
I also had my first rotary mixer experience 2/3 years ago (Rane 2016) and i liked it,a lot,to point of considering buying an Urei. ( i guess i will not be banned from this forum...lol)
From all the info i gathered on mixers components and quality,the best option for a non-rotary high quality mixer ,its the formula Sound Pm-90,it was discontinued 4-6 yaers ago,but to my knowledge (and to a lot of techs also)it can match the sound of an Urei,with slide faders,eq per chanel,crossfader,and it´s completly modular up to 8 fader modules.
You can get these used in good condition,because everyone started to replace them with "fashionable" Pionners Djm or Rane MP2016,but like the Urei ,they can get very pricey.
I think this is the best quality you can get,way beter than Rodec,ecler or Allen &heath.
I aldo can ask and try to get you one,email me if you need more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
