[Video] Eclectic Breaks Pro-X-Fade Crossfader DIY Installation
Eclectic Breaks and the Pro X Fade advanced Crossfader have been out on the market for the last seven years, and within that time frame they have been known to produce a very high quality product for DJ's who want an upgrade to the heart and soul of their DJ mixer. The Pro X Fade crossfader is a solid and customizable fader that can be purchased and installed to upgrade your current crossfader found on a DJ Mixer. The Pro X Fade can work with many different mixers made by different manufacturers and the adjustments in tension and cut-in distance allows for an added layer of customization to the feel of a standard mixer.
The EB Pro-X-Fade is compatible with Stanton, Gemini, Vestax, Allen & Heath, Korg, and many other mixers on the market today. Most mixers with four-pin style crossfader connectors will experience a plug and play install, while mixers with three-pin style connectors or special circuitry may require some additional modifications as was the case with my Korg KM-202 in this video. My personal Korg KM-202 mixer has been around for years and we recently added a new Stanton-T.120 style skin to the mixer, installed a Traktor Audio 4 soundcard to eliminate setup cable-clutter, and we also added the rubber coated Chroma Caps from DJTechTools for a better overall look and feel.
The final and most natural upgrade for this mixer is the Crossfader. We are hip-hop DJ's who love to scratch here at djbooth.net and we are always looking for ways to improve on the scratch-ability of our mixers or controllers. The Pro X Fade crossfader was the perfect choice for this mixer as the small under-body allows for an installation even in tight places.
Check out the DIY Install Video and then head on over to www.proxfade.co.uk to see if your mixer can take advantage of this excellent upgrade. The Pro-X-Fade crossfaders cost around $100 each and they are available at the EB Shop.
