Cases are cases, right? Well, maybe (although some definitely are better than others), but we wanted to cover this little case today because it’s for what is turning out to be a very popular brace of controllers (the Akai Pro AMX and Akai Pro AFX), and it has a nice little twist giving it a “double life”. Let’s find out more…
If you’re going to spend the not insignificant sum required to take ownership of a Traktor Kontrol S8, not protecting it in any way would be a trifle silly. And while the box that comes with it will do the job for a short while, in the end you’ll want a case. The Magma CTRL Case for the S8 could be your solution.
Magma has just released three new models in its CTRL-Case line. Built to spec for the Numark NV, Traktor Kontrol S8, and the Akai AMX / AFX modular controllers, the cases are zippered clamshells that have a foam-lined interior.
We’ve rounded up for you a list of DJ and controller bags that were on the NAMM 2015 showroom floor; from small accessory cases to the largest of DJ controller carry-on bags, here are the ones that caught our attention over the four-day show proper.
Magma’s Riot is the company’s top-of-the-line range of bags designed for DJs who travel a lot. Today I’ve got the smallest (simply called the Riot DJ Backpack) as well as the largest (the humungous Riot DJ Backpack XXL) up for review. Let’s dive right in!
Upon arriving at the Digital DJ Tips office this morning I was greeted by an imposingly large box at the front door. “That’s the Magma flight case for the DDJ-SZ we’re reviewing today, Joey” Phil casually mentioned, “Won’t you bring it inside please and we’ll have a proper look.”
