Christie Zee – one of the main forces behind the DMC Championships – posted the above photo gallery of the Rane Seventy-Two on Saturday, giving the world a great look at the mixer. It looks to be squarely aimed at competing with the DJM-S9 mixer.

Features of the Seventy-Two

From the photos, here’s what we can deduce as the major features of this new Rane DJ 72 mixer so far – clearly designed to go hand-in-hand with Serato DJ based on the labeled features:

-A high-resolution screen in the middle of the mixer section – we haven’t seen the display in action yet
-8 performance pads per deck with 10 modes: Pitch Play, Man Loop, Pad FX, Fader FX, Transport, Cue, Auto Loop, Roll, Sampler, and Slicer
-“Mag Three X3” tension adjustable faders – more details TBD
-Dual FX toggles that look very similar to the switches used on the DJM-S9/RMX-1000
-Independent Sample
-High/Low pass dual filters for each deck
-Dual USB ports/soundcards
-Two “turntable” USB inputs – see below
-Crossfader controls and reverse switches for each fader on the front of the mixer
-Two mic inputs, with built-in echo effect on Mic 1
