While the trend for all-in-one controllers continues unabated, the modular movement is also picking up more pace. The Reloop Neon aims to bring all of the functionality on Serato DJ controller pads into a single unit. Matt Powell from Reloop UK and Serato’s Karl Yankovic take us on a short journey through Neon’s features.
Combine a new product, a group of grown but trade-show tired men, and some beer, and what follows is a unique way of reviewing. Reloop’s new Fader Knobs bring an alternative take on customisation, so we logically did a group test that made a lot of sense at 11.30 in the evening in our hotel rooms.
While everyone gets damp downstairs about mothership controllers, it’s often the small ones that have the biggest impact. The Novation Dicers became a fairly standard fixture thanks to size and cost. And now the next generation of more capable but still affordable Serato controllers is here. The Reloop NEON is all that pad based goodness found on big boy controllers condensed down into a single unit.
Applying their established controller skills to the iOS market, the Reloop Beatpad wears many hats, but is aimed at algoriddim’s djay. Review follows.
Reloop dips its toe in the growing DJ/producer pool with the Reloop Keypad. Darren E Cowley flexes his established Ableton Live skills and checks it out.
Headphones have to a lot these days. And the Reloop RHP-30 headphones attempt to work for DJs, producers and casual listeners. Mark Settle wears and writes.
Reloop announced the only new DJ gear at Musikmesse 2014. The Beatmix 2 and Beatmix 4 fill the budget friendly area of Reloop’s range.
It’s time for some Friday fun, courtesy of DJ Angelo and Fong Fong, who fall in the dressing up box and end up in Super Scratch World!
Reloop always has something to show at trade shows, and NAMM 2014 brought forth the Terminal Mix 8 controller, and an RP-8000 demo from DJ Angelo.
Put the Terminal Mix 4 in the blender with Serato DJ and out comes the Reloop Terminal Mix 8, a familiar controller with all that is good and RGB coloured.
