21st Century : Music : Homemix DJ System
Stop 10 kids in the street today and many of them will be aware of the international stardom that follows such names as 'Fat Boy Slim', 'Pete Tong' or 'Roger Sanchez'. Now many of these youngsters themselves aspire to be the next superstar DJ's, and instead of playing air guitars and singing into their hair brushes, can be seen mimicking strange wrist movements - which no doubt mean that they are mixing.
This sudden rise in fame of the humble DJ to the dizzy heights of pop status is a far cry from the good old days when they were on the same level as glass collectors. There now exists a need for products that can feed this hungry audience, allowing them to cut their teeth and master the skills necessary to make that million.
The Homemix DJ system from Acoustic Solutions taps directly into this vein of energy, and provides the first level of DJ tools required to start along this rocky road to stardom.
Styled for the street, the Homemix is the first DJ product that crosses the boundaries between consumer electronics and the Pro Audio sector.
This product will be sold in national high street shops not normally associated with DJ type products, and also in the traditional Pro Audio stores. The level of functionality that the Homemix offers is unsurpassed, and provides all necessary facilities to start DJ'ing at under £200.
The system is based around a twin CD mixing package that offers pitch control to allow beat matched mixing. A comprehensive mixing desk is included, and an amplifier is built in. With the addition of a mic channel and a split cueing facility, the Homemix gives the aspiring DJ everything required to start performing.
Available from mid October, the Homemix DJ system has already created quite a stir, and will no doubt feature on many Christmas lists this year. The first 5000 Homemix's will come complete with SP1 monitor speakers, headphones and mic free of charge. Also some lucky Homemix owners will find a fun camera inside the box, send in photos of you in the mix, and you could be the next face of Homemix.
