DJing has evolved into something far removed from where it started. But sometimes you just need to mix tracks without the bells and whistles that today’s überunits find themselves laden with. And that’s what Reloop’s RMX-10 BT excels at, but it does so tipping its hat to the way digital music is delivered — for it includes Bluetooth connectivity so that you can feed your phone into the channels. .
Obviously, Reloop has provided uncharacteristically just the right amount of information. And here it is:
RELOOP RMX-10 BT
The RMX-10 BT is a compact 2-channel DJ mixer, which facilitates wireless music streaming directly to the mixer via the integrated Bluetooth interface.
This way it is possible to use a smartphone or tablet as playback source and route the signal through the mixer. The Bluetooth signal can be routed to both channels. Moreover, the 45-mm crossfader is user-replaceable and the smooth linefaders make mixing more comfortable. Each channel has an individual gain control and 3-band EQ that raises or lower the frequencies at 100 Hz, 1 kHz and 10 kHz.
The RMX-10 BT has a 6.3-mm microphone input with separate volume adjustment, as well as a 6.3-mm headphones output with volume adjustment and cue-mix function. Master output volume can be monitored via LED level chains. The space-saving and sturdy construction is made of metal.

BUT WHAT’S THIS BLUEDOG OF WHICH YOU SPEAK?
I’m glad you asked. For those of a certain age, Numark’s Blue Dog mixer aka DM900 was a diminutive blue mixer that delivered the absolute basics. The small size and limited feature set reminded me of that, and it made for a great literary device for the headline.
But it does bring me back to my basic point — some of you will rightly say that it’s of no use to you. And that’s fine — it wasn’t made for you, but was made for those that just need to mix multiple sources with the basics covered, with the added benefit of being able to drop a track from a mobile device into the mix without a rewiring job.
I know, it’s got a bad reputation because of the latency. Indeed, you’ll only find it on devices like cheap OEM mixers and controllers. The big boys won’t normally touch it with a barge pole because it’s difficult to mix with, especially if trying to do so with wired sources. But I’m happy that Reloop has, because it is incredibly convenient.
You get the idea — I needn’t try to concoct a long-form piece about this. Read the PR to find out what it does, how much it costs, and when you can have it. I’ve just made a one-pot chicken pie that won’t eat itself. Now go away.
