Behringer X 1 INFINIUM OPTICAL FADER, Non-Contact optical technology for an extremely long service life Extremely high precision digital (128 positions), Genuine analog feel, Fully adjustable friction with Contact-free magnetic. Use in DDM4000
After some considerable use the original crossfader on my DDM4000 needed replacing and the X1 optical fader represented a significant upgrade for a small amount more than the standard replacement item. The fader came with good fitting instructions but I did find space a bit tight when clipping the cable into place.
If you have fat fingers I would suggest removing the whole faceplate and not just the faderplate to fit this fader.
You can set the cut in from each side so its perfect for scratch djs. The tension setting doesnt seem to tighten things up too much so the fader glides very smoothly. I dont see this being an issue as scratch Djs will only really be potential buyers for this.
In operation It is a huge improvement on the original and really turns a already good mixer into a great mixer. I noticed a clear improvement on my cuts.
