When I first saw the Reloop Neon controller, it was immediately clear to me that to make best use it from a turntablist perspective (because I feel it really is best suited to turntable use), you were going to need two of them. And this new performance video featuring JFB demonstrates that perfectly.

It’s an interesting performance that sits somewhere between turntablism and what would be more aptly described as controllerism. For me, controllerism isn’t just someone who uses a controller, but is more about the techniques used such as looping, sample and hot cue triggering, and effects control too. And the Reloop Neon is ideally suited to helping deliver a controllerist performance within the turntablist sphere. Some might buy a Neon just to fire off one-shots, but JFB isn’t just triggering cue points and samples, but is including traditional scratch and juggle techniques in there too, with more emphasis on what the Neon is good at.

Our review is complete and just needs fact checking with Reloop. Expect that to appear next week.

Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
