TTM56S Mixer

The TTM56S is a classic, full-featured battle mixer with Rane’s patented magnetic faders, isolator EQs, reverse and contour controls for all faders and rugged road-worthy construction. This TTM54 descendent has been a top choice of the serious turntablist for many years.

Rane takes performance mixer design as seriously as performing DJs take their art form. To provide the best instrument possible, Rane devoted two years of R&D to developing a mixer with unparalleled performance. The TTM 56 is flexible, durable, and feature packed. The audio quality of the TTM56S qualifies it for use in the most demanding live venue, recording studio or live broadcast applications.

The original TTM 56 was available from 2001 to 2008 and had an external RS1 power supply. The TTM56S replaced it.

The current model TTM56S includes an internal universal power supply that works anywhere in the world, all four inputs are individually phono/line switchable, includes both 1/4" and 3.5mm headphone jacks, and all controls moved to the top panel.

Manuals for both models are available from the Downloads link.

Magnetic Crossfader and Channel Faders

The proprietary Rane magnetic faders are fast, accurate, and long lasting.

The design uses non-contact technology previously reserved for demanding aerospace and industrial applications. No travel noise—no bleed—ever.

Rane's magnetic faders accurately translate hand motion into precise audio level control. Non-contact fader technology is the only way to fully address the needs of the professional performance DJ.

Both channel faders and the crossfader are magnetic. These faders are easy to clean, and with proper maintenance, should last the life of the mixer. Should one become damaged, you can easily replace it. All three faders are interchangeable. 

Continuously adjustable Contour and Reverse switches for all faders

Channel swap plus fader-reverse and continuously adjustable contour controls for all faders provides the ultimate in mixing and ergonomic flexibility. Whether you’re cutting on a channel fader or crossfader, left-handed or right-handed, fast-cut or slow-blend, the mixer is a perfect fit.

Add Serato Scratch Live plug-and-play DVS capability with an SL2 or SL3

Add support for Serato Scratch Live to this classic mixer with an SL2 or SL3 interface. These devices give you the freedom to take your entire digital music collection on the road with advanced Serato Scratch Live features that add extra creativity to your DJing. This intuitive system replicates the traditional DJing experience for "real feel" usability. The Rane SL2 and SL3 USB 2.0 interfaces connect one, two or three standard vinyl or CD turntables to your computer using a single USB cable with audio connections to line inputs on your TTM56S mixer

Dennis Bohn’s paper on “Accelerated Slope Tone Control Equalizers”

The tone control circuits on the TTM56S were specifically designed to isolate the high, mid, and low frequency bands so DJs can be sure that when they adjust one control, it won't interfere with the others. This gives you the precision of a digital tone control in an analog mixer. This paper by Rane's Dennis Bohn describes the electronic theory behind these carefully designed controls.
