That's definately good advice for those who have rotaries and may want to cut.

For those who have linear and would like to rotate a knob for volume changes, use the channel gain (I know its not really the same, but I like to do it occasionally for some odd reason).

Is the rotary response really smooth and linear all the way from 0 to 10 then?
I'm not liking the slipperness of the faders or the curve on the line version :(
For a mixer that cost a grand, pretty horrible combination IMO

I'm finally doing the switch and changing my linear xone 92 for a rotary one. I can't wait to try this out.

Does anyone know if the rotary has a linear volume curve or is it similar to the fader in that the volume gets significantly louder in the last 20%?


you can fix this by soldering a 47K resistor between pins 1 & 3 on each fader, giving the fader a smooth curve

it would certainly be possible to mod your xone if you're comfortable with that sort of thing... actually you could probably mod the linear faders to give you a diff response if you dont like how it ramps up at the end.

Having owned both the linear and the rotary... I would vote for the rotary version. Firstly, the rotary pots are insanely solid, feeling like something you would find in a tank.... and the action is just so smooth and clean feeling too. But it really all comes down to personal preference and style. I'd say if you do a lot of scratching and cuts, linear is better suited for that, but otherwise go for the R.

Think I'll stick with what Fut 14 Coins I know, and what I'm comfortable with, and buy a linear.

After owning the djm900nexus I went with the db4 3 months in. I've just traded my db4 for a mint condition made in UK xone92r + cash. I have to say, all the talk of the 92 is true--it's the best mixer, I don't think I ever need another mixer and if I do, it'll be the 92 again.

I'm really happy I went with the rotary edition, it's so much smoother and being able to tease in the next track with unmatched refinement brings new elements to my mixing.

Can anyone else confirm this? (47K resistor), as this has caught my imagination...perhaps some form of mini external switch wired in series with said resistor allowing you to switch between volume fader curves as your mixing mood dictates...
