Reloop Terminal Mix 2 Digital DJ Controller

Reloop Terminal Mix 2 Digital DJ Controller

2-deck Serato controller from Reloop
German manufacturer Reloop today announced a new DJ controller: the Terminal Mix 2.

Looking remarkably similar to the company's equally high-end Jockey 3 controller for Traktor Pro 2, this time it is licensed for Serato, comes with Intro, and boasts several innovations of its own.

Features include gain and filter per channel, improved library access, crossfader curve adjustment, 15.5mm vinyl-covered aluminium platters, booth output, and 2 layers across the 8 performance buttons for sample deck control, cue points and smart looping.

There are Hi-RES pitch faders, and the microphone (with EQ) can be routed various ways including through software. There is one external input, which can be switched between phono and line, and as well as booth output there are balanced and unbalanced master outs.

With the Terminal Mix 2 Reloop complements its Serato controller series by a dedicated 2-deck variant.

The Terminal Mix 2 disposes of an integrated 2 channel mixer that besides 3-fold EQ with intelligent kill technique also offers gain and filter modulation per channel. The crossfader curve can be adjusted comfortably on the device's front side.

In addition to the popular Trax Encoder, the master section is now equipped with 4 convenient management buttons which allow direct access to playlists, crates or further layout views without the need to touch your laptop. This means a desired track can be located and loaded instantly into any deck via the designated load buttons, a fader start function can also be activated if desired.

As a further highlight, Reloop have developed brand new ultra-flat aluminium jog platters which with an impressive XXL diameter of 15.5cm have also been enhanced with a non-slip vinyl-grip coating for even more control over your tracks. With a total of 3 modes (pitch bend/vinyl/quick search) it's possible to easily switch between pitch correcting, scratching, or browsing through tracks on the fly.

The entire transport section is fully equipped with rubberised buttons which offer a comfortable pressure point whilst also being extremely durable.

The performance section features an extensive 8 button layout which can be utilised over 2 separate layers for true versatility. On the first layer 4 hot cues can be fired off and 4 sample decks can be triggered simultaneously.

Depending on the software used, other creative possibilities are available, for example the option of accessing hot cues/samples 5-8 on the second layer, or with future software updates this section can be enhanced even further with brand new performance modes (Cut'n'Slice) for live remixing.

The extensive FX section is equipped with 4 buttons, 3 rotary knobs, and 1 endless encoder to provide even more creative possibilities in the mix. The smart loop section also features 4 independent controls allowing users to quickly set beat-precise loops, adjust the size of the loops and even move the loops whilst in a live situation.

Reloop also listened to the requests by many DJs and for the first time has integrated a 14bit pitch fader with 100mm increments, allowing ultra-precise mixing and blending.

The audio section offers a vast array of connecting possibilities for your master PA (including balanced output jacks), a zone function and a DJ booth system. Also very practical are the 2 headphones connections (6.3mm & 3.5mm) which can be adjusted with a 1-band equalizer. A microphone connection with a 1-fold EQ for MCs, hosts or singers has also been integrated and can be adjusted via a flexible routing switching system. Furthermore, it's possible to connect a turntable, CD/MP3 player, or iPhone/iPod to the Aux input which can be routed to the master or even software!

The Terminal Mix comes plug and play ready with Serato DJ Intro. The Traktor Pro 2 mappings are also available.
