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.

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.

The Reloop NEON is a compact controller that allows users to unlock the advanced features within Serato DJ for those who are using DVS systems or DJ controllers without the infamous performance pads that can control SP-6 sampler (with playback-mode LED indicators for each slot), Pad FX, Slicer modes, hotcues, the new Flip Mode, & loops. Check out our review of the Reloop NEON, then check out the video featuring DJ Cable showing off the new Flip Mode feature on the NEON and the turntables….
The Serato team has just released a few new software bundles called kits that will allow users to upgrade to the full Serato DJ software and experience many of the add-on features for drastically reduced prices. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade or add some of the new features to your setup, then now is a great time to take advantage of the savings.
Just because someone is using the lite version of a DJ software doesn’t mean the DJ can’t pull off some great mixing and show some serious skills on these new entry-level DJ controllers that are out there on the market. We reviewed the Pioneer DDJ-SB controller about a year ago and Sam from the Serato team performs a quick routine using only Serato DJ Intro and some of the entry-level controllers that all cost under $300 and are bundled with the software. If you need more horsepower, then the user can upgrade to the full Serato DJ software which has more features.
