DJ Shiftee Traktor Kontrol S8 Performance [Video]

We recently reviewed the new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 which is a very powerful DJ controller for Traktor while also working as a DVS enabled mixer for external turntables and CDJ style control.  The legendary DJ Shiftee has just completed a pretty sick turntable timecode DVS performance along with using some of the new cool features on the Traktor Kontrol S8 such as Freeze Mode.  Check out this dope performance video to see what’s possible with the new S8.

Serato DJ Jazzy Jeff [Videos]

DJ Jazzy Jeff is one of the best DJ’s in the World and one of the main reasons I started spinning on the turntables in the first place.  Serato has always been supportive of the World Traveling (Vinyl Destination) DJ and they decided to invite him out to Auckland for a quick interview and for a video of the famous Peter Piper Routine.  Check out these videos after the jump.

Hercules DJConsole RMX 2 Performance [Video]

We reviewed the Hercules RMX 2 Digital DJ Controller over two years ago, but this new video by DJ Timm United lets everyone know that this compact and powerful controller can still rock the stage quite well.  The Hercules RMX 2 has a solid metal chassis, velocity sensitive pads, and a true standalone mixer mode that can be used with external timecode turntables or CD decks for DVS playback.  Check out our full video and written reviews of the Hercules DJConsole RMX 2 then watch DJ Timm get busy.

As we reported in an earlier NAMM 2015 story, the Reloop team has decided to release their flagship RP-8000 turntables in a straight tonearm edition to appease many scratch DJ’s who are more comfortable with the straight arm skip resistance.  The new RP-8000 Straight turntables will have all the same features and functions of the original RP-8000 Hybrid Turntables we reviewed last year with a new tonearm option for those who want it.

The Rane TTM57MKII two-channel Serato DJ Mixer has just been announced at today’s NAMM 2015 show.  The TTM57MKII is a new update to an old favorite.  When the original TTM57SL mixer was dropped from the Serato DJ support model many DJ’s were up in arms.  Now Rane has made things right by reviving the TTM57MKII complete with Serato DJ control, dual-USB ports, 8 RGB backlit pads, Low/High Pass filters, and the superb build quality that Rane is known for.
