The chunky but lightweight Magma Digi-Control Bag XL can carry an awful lot of gear.
Full Magma Digi-Control Bag XL Review & Video: Got a Traktor Kontrol S4 or other similarly sized controller? Looking for a substantial bag that can fit your controller and a lot of extra gear too? Then the Magma Digi-Control Bag XL (not to be confused with the Magma Digi-Backpack XL which we have reviewed previously) has you in its sights.
A deep, rectangular affair in black padded nylon with a red interior, this bag is designed to be carried via a handle, or over your shoulder with a detachable shoulder strap. Let’s see how it shapes up…

The Magma Laptop Stand 2.1 has a platform that lets you use it with an additional (shallow) controller as well as with your laptop.
Full Magma Laptop Stand 2.1 Review: There’s more to the Magma Laptop Stand 2.1 stand than many laptop stands. It is still portable, and folds away easily into a flat zipped bag, but being a bit more designed means it can do more – there are more adjustments and more options than most.
That means that if you want something that with two folds and a click you’re ready to rock, this isn’t it. But conversely, if you want lots of adjustment and set-up options, this may well be the stand you’re looking for. Let’s find out more…

Perfect for the S4, the Digi-Control Backpack XL might be just the bag you’re looking for.
You wait all year for Traktor Kontrol S4 luggage solutions to come along, and then three arrive at once! As well as the Magma Digi-Control Backpack XL that we’re reviewing today, shortly we’ll be looking at the bag version (as opposed to backpack) – and we have other Kontrol S4 carrying solutions in the review queue too!
This one, the Magma Digi-Control Backpack XL, is appealing because although it’s a perfect as a Kontrol S4 bag (and the Kontrol S4 is quite a large controller), the bag is actually pretty compact – unlike some Kontrol S4-sized backpacks that look more like you’re carrying your whole house on your back. So let’s take a closer look and see how it stacks up…

The Magma Riser Laptop Stand is a very stable platform for your laptop or controller.
The Magma Riser Laptop Stand is different to most stands aimed at DJs, in that it is an X-shaped design, which is inherently stronger than the “sideways U” usually seen (for instance in another Magma stand we’ve reviewed recently, the Magma Traveler laptop stand). It’s also designed to raise your laptop or controller to a shallower height and with less angle than most other designs.
In this Magma Riser Laptop Stand review, we’ll explain how the stand is assembled and disassembled, and report how it fared with both a lightweight laptop and a heavier DJ controller on it, so you can decide if this kind of design might be better for your needs than a bigger, heavier stand.

Designed for larger-sized DJ controllers plus a laptop of any size, the Magma Control Stand is a good solution for semi-permanent installation.
DJ laptop stands are pretty much the same, aren’t they? A platform for your laptop or controller, and maybe a little shelf for an audio interface, if you’ve bought a posh one. The differences are really down to quality. Right?
Well, not always. One stand that bucks the trend is the Magma Control Stand. This clever stand is designed from the ground up to hold both a DJ controller (and a big one, at that) and a laptop, while playing nicely with any existing gear either in your home studio or at the club. We put one through its paces…
