Reloop today launched its latest controller, the Beatmix – a two-channel model designed specifically to work with Virtual DJ.
Its focus is “plug and play”, aiming to help DJs to get up and running with the minimum of fuss. But while it is stripped back to basics, it still manages to pack in a pretty solid feature set. Features include individual filters, a microphone input, 14cm aluminium dual-function jogs, channel EQs and gains, and a “beat mash” mode.
It has onboard four-channel USB audio, 70mm pitch faders, and controls for effects, smart looping, hot cues and Virtual DJ’s sampler. There’s also fader start.
The supplied Virtual DJ version is a four-deck “Reloop Edition” LE, but for those wishing to use it with other software it it fully Midi mappable, and Traktor 2 Pro mapping is available.
Output is via twin RCAs, and there’s VU metering too. No word on price or availability yet.
