Instead of buying a new controller every time Serato decides to add a little extra software magic, the concept of secondary controllers came about. These tame the finer points of new features, and the new Reloop Neon aims to make sense of the expanding pad functions including the new Serato Flip. Jared Helfer does the reviewing honours.
Reloop’s toe dipping into production brought the Keypad and Keyfadr to the DJ market. And now they’re getting serious about MIDI and have released a MIDI mapper and extra files for other MIDI software.
The Reloop Neon controller packs a lot into a single small Serato DJ driven controller. And in this video, JFB beats a pair of them into submission.
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.
