INTRODUCTION

Order Of Magnitude LLC is proud to present the Foundation Precision Instrument, a DJ mixer designed to true professional audio specifications. Conventional mixer functionality is preserved while new tools are presented in a predictable and straight-forward fashion. Significant features include differential phono preamps, pre-fader channel outputs, stereo group insert points, internal modular construction, and an external power supply.

As the primary gain stage, a mixer defines the entire system's performance and should be regarded as the base upon which that system is built. Unsurpassed fidelity and a wide selection of inputs and outputs makes the Foundation the ideal tool for studio work and mixdown recording, while a simple control surface and powerful filter stages make it exceptional for live performance applications. Combining select passive components with high-performance active devices yields an extremely transparent signal path and powerful filter sections that compliment today's ultra-club sound systems.

The end result is a high-fidelity device that achieves new levels of performance in dance music mixing. Solid engineering and industry experience have produced a mixer that brings unparalleled quality and functionality to the dance environment.

IN THE WORLD OF PRO DJ MIXERS,
THE FOUNDATION IS AT A HIGHER LEVEL.
