DJDeals.com is proud to be the World's largest retailer of Audio Innovate Innofader Pro!
DJDeals.com introduces the Audio Innovate Innofader Pro, a replacement crossfader for industry standard VCA faders, with the advantages of Audio Innovate´s exclusive non-contact, variable capacitor technology. With an 8mm stem, sturdy, long body construction, and without a fader brush to wear out, the Audio Innovate Innofader Pro is designed to last over 4 million cycles of use - with zero maintenance.
The Innofader Pro uses the same quality construction as the original Innofader and fits the following mixers:
1) All of the Innofader compatible mixers (except Ecler Eternal fader replacements)
2) Rane TTM-56/57 and Pioneer DJM-800 without any extra adapters.
3) All A&H Xone mixers
4) All mixers previously requiring the Innofader + Innofader Output Adapter (Tascam XS-4, XS-8, old Ecler HAK 300/310/320)
5) Numark M series and Vestax VMC-002 without mods
6) Virtually any analog mixer that fits it, but possibly requiring mods.
In addition to being compatible with a wider range of mixers, the Innofader Pro has the following improvements over the original Innofader:
1) No polarity testing is required. The Innofader Pro is a plug and play device for most mixers.
2) Works over a full +/- 15V or 0 to 30V range.
3) Allows crossfader forward reverse switching on all compatible mixers.
The Audio Innovate Innofader Pro uses variable capacitor technology which, unlike current optical technology, makes it 100% resistant to smoke, dust, and moisture that plague most DJ working environments. In addition, currently used magnetic faders only work in the same brand mixers, leaving DJs limited options for upgrading their mixer faders. The InnoFader Pro is designed to work with mixers from a variety of manufacturers.
The crossfader is at the very heart of the DJing experience. So why do so many mixers come with faders that feel like an afterthought? The feel of the crossfader is as important as any other feature of your mixer, so you deserve to have the best at your fingertips.
The Audio Innovate Innofader Pro was specifically designed to completely change the way you feel about the crossfader. Having studied the habits and requirements of today's DJs, the innoFADER offers unparalleled levels of quality and adjustability that you just don't find in other crossfaders.
So thanks to the Audio Innovate Innofader Pro, you'll no longer need to be less than satisfied with the stock fader in your mixer. Buy the Audio Innovate Innofader Pro today and change your DJ life forever.
Wouldn't you rather have a fader that you just plug in and forget about? Isn't it a real pain to have to keep taking it out every few months to clean it, just so it continues to work? Such is the weakness of traditional faders - contact technology that will eventually break.
The Audio Innovate Innofader Pro has been built from the ground up to utilise a new form of non-contact technology - capacitance. For you, this means installing and forgetting about it, rather than constant faceplate removing sessions to remove the build up of daily DJ dirt.
That's not all - the innoFADER has a whole arsenal of adjustments as well as an almost universal plug and play architecture, making it the most user friendly fader in the DJ scene.
One of the biggest technological hurdles facing faders is contact. On a traditional VCA fader, the fader body runs along rails, but one side has to physically be in contact with carbon strips. This contact causes resistance to the touch as well as longer term wear, which in turn requires regular cleaning. The innoFADER however uses a unique capacitance based technology. The fader body glides on rails between 2 circuit boards which track the location and feed it back to the mixer digitally.
No contact means no bleed, which is when audio comes through even if the fader is closed - a classic problem for traditional VCA faders. This is caused by the grime from worn Carbon fader tracks as well as the gradual build up of daily DJ dirt interfering with the fader action. The innoFADER has no Carbon tracks to wear down or that can be effected by dirt which gives you 3 distinct benefits:
The life of the Audio Innovate Innofader Pro is vastly increased compared to conventional VCA technology
Instead of very regular cleaning, only routine maintenance is needed to keep the rails running smoothly.
A reduction in friction, leading to a smoother fader action.
So owning an innoFADER means no more fader brush cleaning, prolonged fader life and near guaranteed bleed-free smoother performance.
The success of a mixer is largely down to the feel of the crossfader. It's a highly personal experience that is often ignored with stock faders. You need to make it your own and feel that the fader won't break in your hands.
The innoFADER comes complete with a solid steel 8mm fader stem, designed to withstand even that hardest battering from a heavy handed scratch DJ. But thanks to specially designed polished Steel rails, the innoFADER runs as smooth as butter, responding to even the lightest touch.
But that's not all - if you prefer a little more resistance from your fader, the innoFADER has a special tension adjust control. It's also been designed so that the tension adjust screw stays in place - no working its way free inside your fader.
Understanding that a mixer will live or die simply by the feel of the fader, we've gone to great lengths to make sure that the innoFADER offers the best possible feel for the broadest range of DJs and styles.
DJs have a tendency to be less than gentle with their faders. The traditional 4mm stem isn't that strong, which is why we use an an 8mm Steel stem. Not only does this give the greatest possible strength to weight ratio, but also adds a few extra grams to the feel - often so important for many DJs.
The rails are equally important to the feel of the fader. They're made from the finest Stainless Steel, machined and polished to the highest tolerances, and importantly humidity tested to ensure that they remain clean and smooth, not matter what conditions you work in.
For the ultimate in adjustability, the innoFADER comes complete with tension control. Essentially, this is a shaped washer mechanism, acting against the top rail and adjusted with a small screw. With one turn of the supplied adjustment tool, you can adjust the feel of the innoFADER from ultra loose (for the turntablists) right up to pitch fader style firm (for the mix DJs). Importantly, the tension mechanism was specifically designed so that the screw doesn't get dislodged with constant fader movement.
Finally, to eliminate the much despised "clicky" noise often experienced with other faders, the innoFADER has Silicone rubber stoppers at the end of the rails.
We all like to do things in our own special way don't we? But when you"re trying to fit a different fader inside your mixer, the likelihood is that it"ll be a less than straightforward process.
Right out of the box the innoFADER should fit into your mixer. But not all mixers are created equally, and the chances are you"ll need to break out wire cutters and a soldering iron to fit your new fader.
Unless you have an expensive scratch mixer, the odds are that you"re left with little in the way of fader curve control. But here at Audio Innovate, we feel that every DJ should have as many controls as possible to tweak.
Curve control is common across a broad range of mixers, but is often not as good as it could be. Far less common is lag adjust, and is often manually modded by users. The innoFADER however gives you control over both - directly from the fader itself.
So with the innoFADER, you can now have professional level adjustments, even on the oldest or cheapest VCA based mixers that may not have had any adjustments at all.
Just drop an innoFADER inside and you"re playing in the big leagues.
The key points of the InnoFader Pro are as follows:
Even the best conductive plastic (CP) or carbonized conductive plastic (CCP) contact faders will eventually bleed and require cleaning. Since the InnoFader Pro is non-contact, no cleaning is required.
Sturdy design - 8mm stem, long body type
Many DJs have experienced issues with bent or broken 4mm fader stems, thus the InnoFader Pro adopts the emerging standard 8mm stem, ensuring almost no chance of breaking the stem. The long body type ensure a rigid construction which when combined with the heavy stem ensures a solid and long lasting crossfader.
No calibration required
The InnoFader Pro is designed to automatically compensate for circuit tolerances to the point that no calibration is required to adjust for the <0.5mm tolerance on fader cut-in position.
Standard VCA output
Many manufacturers design their faders to work with custom outputs, and interfaces that make plug and play with 3rd party faders almost impossible. The InnoFader Pro will work as a drop in replacement for analog faders. Why?
1. The pinout is a 4 pin industry standard +Vin, VCA out #1, VCA out #2, and ground. 2. The VCA out signals are from 50k digital potentiometers with 256 taps, and the output can short to Vcc or ground for a full on/off signal. 3. The entire fader power draw can be as low as 0.5mA so that circuits designed for low power 50k fader connections will work.
Ultra wide range tension adjustment
At the lightest setting, the InnoFader Pro can move with the slightest tap. On the other extreme, the InnoFader Pro requires a steady push to move it. DJs can adjust the InnoFader Pro to any tension setting depending on mixing style.
Analog VCA faders have fixed A, B, or D-type curves. The InnoFader Pro has an output curve adjustment to fit any of these configurations. In addition to fitting these configurations, the InnoFader Pro can be set for full cutting at the top or bottom.
Single cut-in adjustment for both sides
This ensures that the InnoFader Pro can work in any sized fader slot. Since the adjustment is electronic, the actual active fader area can be shortened, unlike others which have a fixed active fader area. This often requires adjusting the mixer to fit the fader, while the InnoFader Pro can be electronically adjusted to fit the mixer.
Not affected by dust, smoke, temperature, moisture
One main drawback of optical faders is that they stop working once there is internal dirt buildup. The InnoFader Pro´s electronic signals are unaffected by environmental factors experienced in harsh DJ environments.
No cleaning required
Unlike other contact fader technologies, only routine light maintenance is required to keep the rails lubricated and free running. Because of the closed construction of the long body, this is kept to an absolute minimum.
Reasonable cost The InnoFader Pro comes in at a very reasonable price for the quality and performance it offers.
The innoFADER boasts another first for any crossfader - onboard adjustment of both the cut-in point and the curve
In most cases, mixers do not offer cut-in point control, instead being left to under the hood manual modifications to reduce the unusable dead space of the fader. The innoFADER however offers a "cut-in" adjustment and depending on your needs, can be used to reduce or increase the dead space.
Often the factory fitted curve just isn't good enough. Sometimes the cut isn't sharp enough, there's a "dip" in the middle, or the DJ just wants a curve that feels more natural. The innoFADER "curve" trim pot offers full control of this mid point all the way to pin-sharp at either end of the curve, keeping even the most fussy of DJs happy.
Mix DJs however have need of greater control over the fader curve linearity. Not all mixers are created equally so the innoFADER has the ability - via an easily removed jumper connector - to fix the mid-point and adjust the curve accordingly. This can especially come in handy for mixers with mono VCA crossfaders, allowing you to sharpen or soften the curve equally for both channels.
The innoFADER gives you all the options you could ever need to achieve the perfect curve response on mixers that might not even have any curve options at all.
