MP2015 Mixer

The Rane MP2015 is a no-compromise music-mixing performance instrument.

Control, sound, reliability and durability distinguish Rane’s new techno house club mixer for high-end audio systems.

Born from a legacy of rotary club mixers beginning in 1971 with Rudy Bozak’s CMA-10-2DL, on to 1982 and UREI’s 1620, then in 1999 Rane’s MP2016/XP2016 combo, and now in 2015, the MP2015 represents the next revival and evolution. This mixer has an analog soul with a digital heart.

With over 40 years of rotary mixer experience to draw on, along with collaboration and input from the world’s best techno house DJs, the MP2015 is the best mixer produced by Rane—ever. There are no compromises in the design. It has the best sound, the best features, the best feel, and the best reliability and durability.

The Rane MP2015 is now Traktor Scratch Certified! See the blog post.

This is a Serato DJ + DVS upgrade-ready mixer. To use this mixer with Serato DJ, purchase the Club Kit (Serato DJ + DVS) license bundle, available here. See Serato's announcement and video.

Sound Quality

A world-class leader in performance, this mixer is designed for playback of High-Resolution Audio (HRA) 24-bit studio master quality sources. Its sonic signature has no equal, satisfying the most stringent vinyl purists. And the dynamics are perfect for DJs that appreciate the uncompressed sound of WAV and FLAC files.

Professional high-end sound quality begins and ends with the audio signal converters. The MP2015 uses premium performance Audio 4 Pro™ delta-sigma modulator converters by AKM [Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation] that meet the highest sound quality standards of recording studios. The balanced differential audio input converters deliver 116 dB dynamic range, utilizing a built-in modified FIR architecture that minimizes group delay, allowing excellent linear phase response. The 24-bit audio output converters have the same 116 dB dynamic range and sport AKM’s proprietary 24-bit digital filter for better sound quality achieving low distortion characteristics and wide dynamic range. The differential outputs eliminate the need for AC coupling capacitors further increasing performance.  Input and output converters support sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, or 96 kHz. Overall Digital/USB in to Line-out, or Line-in to Digital/USB out dynamic range is 116 dB (A-weighted), while Line-input to Line-output dynamic range is a remarkable 113 dB (A-weighted) with vanishingly low THD+N of 0.001%.

Studio-Quality Phono Preamps, and S/PDIF for CDJs

The Phono-CD (or any line-level source) analog inputs feature gold RCA connectors and are true studio-quality preamplifiers providing EMI[1], RFI[2] and transient overvoltage protection against ESD[3]. The circuitry provides low noise, high gain-bandwidth, low harmonic distortion, fast slew rate and high output current. The phono RIAA filter accuracy measures +0.1/-0.2 dB from perfect. Included are 18 Hz high-pass infrasonic (rumble) filters with steep 18 dB/octave slopes and ultrasonic filters beginning roll-off at 50 kHz at a 12 dB/octave rate. A zero-distortion relay selects between CD and Phono operation.

  1. EMI (electromagnetic interference) A measure of electromagnetic radiation from equipment. 
  2. RFI (radio frequency interference) A measure of radio frequency (RF) radiation from equipment. 
  3. ESD (electrostatic discharge) Electrical discharges of static electricity that build up on personnel or equipment, generated by interacting dissimilar materials.

Using CDJs? For the very best sound, bypass the D/A converters and go direct digital with S/PDIF. Regular RCA line inputs work for players without S/PDIF outputs. Switches for each input let you choose.

Sweep Filters

Each of the four Input channels and the Submix channel features a unique and exclusive three-position toggle selector switch. Choose between LP (low-pass), HP (high-pass) or L-H (low-pass, high-pass combo). All have steep 24 dB/octave (4th-order) slopes and are sweepable.

In the LP position, the Filter knob sweeps the low-pass frequency from 20 Hz to 20 kHz (CW to CCW). The 12:00 middle position is 635 Hz. 

In the HP position, the Filter knob sweeps the high-pass frequency from 20 Hz to 20 kHz (CCW to CW). The 12:00 middle position is 635 Hz.

In the L-H position, the Filter knob sweeps either the LP or HP filter depending upon rotation direction from center. The 12:00 middle position bypasses both filters giving a flat, unaffected response. Rotating the knob from fully counterclockwise to center sweeps the LP filter from 20 Hz to 18 kHz. Turning the knob from center to fully clockwise sweeps the HP filter from 35 Hz to 20 kHz. 

The single Resonance (Q) knob controls the shape of all Input and Submix filters. The range is from flat (Q=0.707) to max peaking (Q=12). 

These filters are high resolution, fast and artifact free, with all filter coefficients accurately calculated for the selected sample rate.

Submix Channel

This unique input channel provides grouping any number of inputs for easy multi-source mixing. It allows one set of controls for all functions verses having to deal with multiple knobs and buttons on multiple channels. Plus this becomes another input simply by activating the SUB button found on the Session In section.

The Submix is great innovation for multi-track DJs, combining 1 to 4 channels plus the Session Input into a Submix, thereby controlling multiple tracks with one set of EQ, Filter, and volume controls. This means turning one knob instead of trying to turn several channel knobs at once. Quickly assign or un-assign any Input to the Submix, which has its own meter, headphone Cue, and USB record output. This is also where an external effects unit can be mixed in, and assigned to the Submix or the Main Mix. The Submix can also be used as a 5th input channel from the Session Input. No other mixer on the market provides this ease of multi-track use.


3-Band Full-Cut Tone Controls

All input channels and the Submix channel have exceptional three-band tone controls. These are 12 dB/octave (2nd-order) Linkwitz-Riley, full-cut filters (kill) with selectable crossover points of 150 Hz/6.0 kHz or 300 Hz/3.0 kHz. The crossover points are selected in the user control panel when connected to a computer via one of the USB ports.

Like the Sweep Filters, the Tone Control filters are exceptionally accurate, high resolution, fast and artifact free, with all filter coefficients accurately calculated for the selected sample rate.

Isolator EQ Section

The proprietary three-band output Isolator is a steep 24 dB/octave (4th-order) phase-compensated Linkwitz-Riley design with continuously adjustable low-mid and mid-high crossover points. Like the Tone Controls, these filters are extremely accurate, high resolution, fast and artifact free, with all filter coefficients accurately calculated for the selected sample rate.

Adjustable crossovers allow the artist to match the Isolator to the music being played. Low-mid crossover is adjustable from 80 Hz to 640 Hz. Mid-high crossover is adjustable from 1 kHz to 8 kHz.

These give you amazing control of the powerful lows, mountainous mids, and silky-sweet highs in your main mix.

It's possible to use the rear panel switches to change between 4 turntables and 4 CD decks, with 2 more stereo inputs left for keyboards.

Dual USB Ports for Simple DJ Changeover

One of the biggest challenges of digital DJing has been seamlessly changing over from one DJ to the next and playing back-to-back DJ sets. With the dual USB architecture of the MP2015 mixer, changeover between digital DJs has never been easier. Different DJ or DAW software programs are not a problem. When two DJs are connected to the MP2015, they can quickly swap deck control between computers using the Source Select knobs. Any of the four inputs can be swapped back and forth with a simple knob twist. Nice and easy, just the way we intended.

Each port can stream 24 channels of low-latency 24-bit audio at 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz.

Connect up to four turntables, four CD decks, or two of each.

S/PDIF inputs are provided for equipped CDJs. Connect a fifth CD to the Session In using either analog or S/PDIF.

Connect yet another CD or musical instrument to the AUX line input, available at any of the input channels.

Rane Rotary Mixer Comparison

The two-channel MP2014 uses the same platform as Rane’s MP2015, which is the new worldwide standard for four-channel rotary mixers. Both are no-compromise music-mixing machines.

With a world standard to work with, the creation of the MP2014 was straightforward: remove two input channels and the Submix channel; voilà, you have a MP2014—okay, not quite that simple, but in the critical pristine signal path, it is.

MP2014 Features

  • 2-deck mixing, with additional USB aux / session input.
  • 2 aux line inputs, with 1 on each channel.
  • 3 stereo playback and 7 stereo record channels on each USB port.
  • Mic input has FX loop assign switch.

MP2015 Features

  • 4-deck mixing, with a 5th deck / additional USB aux / session input in the Submix channel.
    • Submix allows grouping any number of inputs for easy multi-source mixing from one channel.
    • S/PDIF inputs on each of the 4 deck channels.
  • 1 aux line input, assignable to any of the 4 channels.
  • 5 stereo playback and 7 stereo record channels on each USB port.
  • Mic input has switchable phantom power.

Both are designed for high-end, hi-res audio systems— whether club or studio, personal or downtown. There are no compromises in the design. They have the best sound, the best features, the best feel, and the best reliability, durability and portability, supported by the best customer service on the planet.

Class Compliant Dual USB Ports

Dual USB ports provide simultaneous connection of two computers, enabling back-to-back sets between laptop DJs running different software without compromise or interruption—no easy feat.

The USB ports are 100% class compliant, allowing hook-up to any Mac OS X device without the need for an additional driver.

The included high-performance ASIO driver runs most Windows DAW and DJ software. Get it from the Downloads tab on this page.

MIDI end points are class-compliant with both OS X and Windows devices.

Serato DJ + DVS Upgrade-Ready

Rane is happy to announce that the MP2015 is supported in Serato DJ version 1.7.7 (and higher) with the purchase of the Serato DJ Club Kit. 

The Serato DJ Club Kit includes Serato DJ and the Serato DVS Expansion Pack. Purchase the kit from Serato.

Here are easy instructions for DVS control with the MP2015.

Traktor Scratch Certified

Rane is pleased to announce a collaboration with Native Instruments to bring you official Traktor certification for the Rane MP2015 and MP2014 rotary mixers.

These incredible mixers are getting a lot of action, but now with Traktor Scratch certification they are through the roof. The MP2015 was the first Rane mixer to have Traktor Scratch certification allowing control of four Traktor decks with vinyl and/or control CDs. It was also the first Traktor Scratch certified mixer with dual USB ports; allowing easy back to back DJing and/or changeovers. The newer MP2014 just received Traktor Scratch certification, so it can also do all of this.

Setup is easy with Rane's class-compliant Core Audio drivers for Mac. Windows users only need to install the Rane ASIO driver. The MP2015 and MP2014 control surfaces are MIDI-mappable to Traktor giving you software control directly on the mixing console. Although Traktor software is not bundled with Rane mixers, it is available for download from the Native Instruments website.
