This is the brand new Innofader PNP version which will take the place of the original Innofader.
The original Audio Innovate Innofader has become somewhat complicated to most end-users because the manufacturer has gone to great length to make sure that it fits into every dj mixer imagineable. To try to simplify things for consumers, and to make installation dramatically easier, Audio Innovate has now invented the Innofader PNP. PNP stands for plug & play which when compared to the original Innofader, very accurately reflect the new product. With the original Innofader there were a ton of cables and parts included, with the Innofader PNP that’s all gone, and instead the testing circuitry to determine if it’s working with your particular mixer, is now built-in to the Innofader PNP, leaving a simple selection of 3 and 4 pin cables. To aid with installation, the label on the fader has been changed. It now shows exactly what to do when installing, even down to explaining how easy it is to simply reverse cables or jumpers if the red testing LED comes on. Another issue that the original Innofader had in some installations is insulation. The Innofader PNP now includes a thick insulation strip that insulates the open circuit on the back from the rest of the DJ mixer. It also comes with popular fixing plates too – the regular plate fits almost anything, and there are included plates for the Pioneer DJM-800 and DJM-900.
Purchase the Innofader PNP if:
1) You want to save money.
2) You have a VCA mixer or controller which is Innofader PNP compatible.
3) The future mixers where you plan on using the Innofader PNP are also compatible.
This essentially fits the same mixers as the original Innofader with the following improvements:
No adapter boards!
On-board wiring tester
Reversible 3 and 4 pin VCA cables
Denon / Rane Empath cable included
Added insulator card on the bottom
Added DJM-800 and DJM-900 mounting brackets
2 Vinyl marking stickers included
The only thing we removed is Ecler support. For this please purchase the Innofader Pro.
Since there are no adapter boards, the installation process is much cleaner and simpler. However, please still be careful during installation and make sure to avoid metal-metal contact between circuit board parts and cables. To be safe, use a piece of electrical tape to wrap the mixer cable plugs.
