Magma’s new Switchbox V2 Allows for Two Setups at a Time
Magma DJ Solutions is bringing us the new Switchbox V2 that makes it a lot easier for DJ's to switch between two different Software/Computer-controlled setups while being able to use the same Mixer. This would make it so DJ's at clubs won't have to disconnect and reconnect cables to a Mixer when they want to switch their control interface or if there are multiple DJ's working the same gig (i.e. turntablist battles or multiple Genre events). This is probably a product mostly suited for "permanent" setup situations at clubs or bars, but this could also come in handy for DJ's who want to use different types of software or Decks and likes to change them on the fly...(I know you are out there somewhere)...
More Information from the Manufacturer:
The new MAGMA SWITCHBOX .V2 Digital-DJ makes it easier than ever to transition between two DJ’s, without having to unplug the decks and mixer to connect a new soundcard. It provides a hustle-free changeover in the DJ-Booth, enabling two DJ interfaces (any model) to be connected simultaneously to a mixer (even a two channel battle mixer).
The MAGMA SWITCHBOX .V2 features a three-way selector switch to assign the signal from the decks to either interface to switch between two digital DJ setups, or send it directly to the mixer (THRU).
In addition to switching between two soundcards, the MAGMA SWITCHBOX features connections for two turntables and two CD players. A Mode switch enables either system to be controlled via CD or vinyl.
Forget the days of unplugging one deck at a time when you finish your set, and reaching behind the mixer to fish for your cables. You can now patch into the system without getting in the way of the previous DJ finishing his set. When you are ready to play your first record, just select a deck from the MAGMA SWITCHBOX and you are good to go. When you are done with your set, you can unplug at anytime without interrupting the next DJ.
Thus, the MAGMA SWITCHBOX 2.0 enables the so-called “Ping-Pong or Tag Team Style” at which 2 or more DJs are alternating after each song. So if there are 2 DJs performing with each of their laptops (e.g.: DJ A: Traktor Scratch und DJ B: Serato), the turntables (or CD-players) can easily be routed towards the desired audio source
Designed by Skullyleo
Hustle-free connection of two digital DJ-systems/interfaces (like Serato, Traktor Scratch, Mixvibes etc.) to a usual DJ-set (also 2 channel mixer)
Provides switching between the signal of two interfaces without RCA re-patching for simple DJ handovers
Each turntable or Cd-player can be connected independently to eithr the mixer (regular phono or CD) or to one of the two DJ-systems. Meaning 4 different signals (Interface A, Interface B, Phono and CD) can simply be assigned and played oneach of both mixer channels.
Both digital systems can be controlled with Timecode Vinyl as well as with Timecode CDs
No buzzing because of star-shaped ground arrangement passive and no power supply required
