Here's a video talkthrough straight from the NAMM 2014 show floor of the brand new Reloop TM8 Serato DJ controller.
It's a controller that builds on the Terminal Mix 4, improving some of the ergonomics, and crucially adding full dual-mode RGB performance pads, a first in the Reloop range.
We liked the way the RGB performance pads are dual use, in that pressing each selector a second time dials in a related but different mode. The way they've handled scrolling through samples is particularly neat.
It's all explained clearly in the video, but basically if you're a fan of Reloop's products (build quality and jogwheels are the standout things in our view of Reloop's range), yet you've wanted a controller with sample pads built in too, I reckon you'll love this. Price is €579.
So, do you think this looks good having seen the video? Has Reloop got the form factor / feature set about right? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
