Reloop Digital Jockey 2 IE


I saw this in use in a club a few days back. I must say that it looks pretty sturdy. This Reloop controller comes with Traktor LE and it can work with Virtual DJ with a TPI mapped file. There are quite a few controllers that have the robustness of the Traktor S4 and S2, as well as the Denon MC3000 and this one feels like it can. It is pretty small, and can fit in a backpack with ease. The only issue, unlike my Hercules, is that it does not come with a cover. You need to buy a separate cover for it to protect it. And like my Hercules, it has inputs for turntables and CD-players…a very useful backup should your computer fail on you. From what I can see, it looks like it has what it takes to deliver what a DJ needs. From the Reloop website, here are the specifications:

  • Professional DJ USB/MIDI controller with integrated audio interface
  • Integrated 4-channel USB audio interface with 16 bit/48 kHz
  • Stereo RCA inputs (with phono pre-amp) in order to connect CD players and turntables plus 6.3 mm microphone jack (with an equalizer of its own)
  • Stereo RCA outputs for the connection of a master sound system and 6.3 mm headphones jack for direct monitoring (with an equalizer of its own)
  • Record gain at the device’s front side
  • ASIO drivers with minimum latency and best audio characteristics
  • Optimized for the world’s leading mixing software Traktor Pro (clearly arranged shift double assignment, control of up to 4 decks)
  • Comes with Native Instruments Traktor LE
  • All controllers in full size
  • Altogether 73 MIDI controllers (42 buttons, 5 faders, 9 encoders, 6 push encoders, 9 turning knobs, 2 touch-sensitive jog wheels)
  • All MIDI controllers are freely assignable
  • USB bus power: power supply also possible via USB
  • Anti-theft device: Kensington safety slot
  • Mac OSX and Windows XP/Vista compatible
  • Clearly arranged mixer/CD player design for quick and easy access
  • Plug’n’Play ready for Virtual DJ (from version 7.0.4 Pro)

I just might keep an eye on this one, even though the Denon MC-3000 and the MixVibes are also on my radar.
