Gemini’s forthcoming SDJ-4000 is a lot bigger and heavier than it appeared in the press pics.

Well now that was a surprise! We expected, from the PR images, two built-to-budget plastic items, and instead it turns out these two forthcoming products from Gemini – on show here at NAMM 2017 – are all-metal affairs, the MAS-1 in particular being much bigger and better built than we’d thought.

MAS-1 Video

This is a clever and original controller for DJs who want to perform using Ableton Live. This talkthrough contains a lot of info re the workflow, so if it intrigues you, watch and listen carefully. That stand is not in the slightest flimsy, by the way…

SDJ-4000 Video

This is an early prototype and Craig who demos it, had literally set hands on it a couple of hours before the video, so expect the finishes to improve and other details to change made before production. It was heavy!

So, surprising stuff from Gemini? Let us know your thoughts on either or both of these in the comments below.
