No matter what type of DJ you are or what type of gear you own, having a two-channel mixer in your arsenal is a good idea. It’s like the multitool of DJing, and will help you with everything from DJing with friends, to good old fashioned DJing with – god forbid – real turntables. Reloop’s new RMX22i is just such a traditional mixer.
In a major upgrade to its djay Pro platform for Mac, Algoriddim has added comprehensive support for Pioneer CDJ and XDJ models; live video mixing; and a host of other features, helping to make djay Pro a serious alternative for use in pro DJ booths.
