DJ Mixer As An Educational Project

US Audiotonix launches STEAM kit-based DJ mixer to help develop audio engineering and mixing skills      05/04/24

Audiotonix has announced that they will be introducing the first and only Audiotonix branded product, the STEAM powered DJ mixer kit, as part of a new educational initiative. They say that, designed to engage the next generation of engineers, the self-assembly mixer provides students with new engineering and technology skills and provides schools and education groups with a practical project based on real world audio technology.

James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix, told us, "The idea behind STEAM is simple. Our brands, and many of our partners and customers too, are struggling to bring new talent into our industry. If we want continued success then it's our collective responsibility to help develop the next generation of engineers, starting whilst they are at school. To build more interest in engineering and help develop these core STEM skills, we have created a kit-based, USB powered, 2-channel DJ audio mixer that students can build and assemble themselves or as a team".  

Helen Culleton, COO of Audiotonix said, "With the help of our global partners, schools, youth groups and charities will be able to get kits at a heavily discounted pricing or for free, and the aim is that, for all units sold, we reinvest all the monies back into building more kits that will get into the hands of students who wouldn't normally get access to this opportunity. It's a start, and our aim is to create further STEM and audio engineering initiatives in the future."

The STEAM mixer itself is comprised of three printed circuit boards (PCB's) with individual through hole components that need to be soldered in place. Audiotonix says that the mixer can be simply assembled with the supplied metalwork to make the finished, professional grade, DJ mixer. They tell us that, as it is USB 2.0 (USB B) powered, STEAM is safe to build and easy to use in any location and jurisdiction and that, with dedicated instructions and video content on how to build and use, students will gain an understanding of how the different technical elements work together to create a product they can use to develop their creative skills too.
