The new Reloop Beatmix 4 is an entry to intermediate-level four deck digital DJ controller that comes bundled with the full Serato DJ experience. This new controller is mainly entry level in price while providing the full Serato DJ software experience (for a limited time), full RGB backlit performance pads, and aluminum-top jog wheels with an LED light ring for needle position monitoring.
The Numark NV Serato DJ Dual-Screen controller is on full display at the Atlantic City DJ Expo and everyone who attends can use the new Serato DJ 1.7 and see the full workflow of the Numark NV. We've had some time to play with the Numark NV and in this video, I'll give you my personal First Impressions and show you my thoughts on this new unique controller.
The New Akai AMX (modular mixer) and AFX (auxiliary controller) Serato DJ controllers are both on full display at the Atlantic City DJ Expo and everyone is giving great feedback on them and leaving the booth with smiles on their faces. We've had some time to play with the AMX and AFX and in this video, I'll give you my personal First Impressions and show you my thoughts on these new controllers.
The newly announced Pioneer DDJ-SX2 is on hand at the 2014 DJ Expo in Atlantic City and DJ Flip from the Pioneer Crew gave us a quick walkthrough of the updates to show us the new improvements. The new Pioneer DDJ-SX2 inherits all of the features of the original and adds multi-color RGB backlit Performance pads, hotcue markers on the jog wheel display, Serato Flip controls, and it is Serato DJ DVS compatible right out of the box.
We're here at the 2014 Atlantic City DJ Expo where the Brand new Numark NV Controller promises to change the game by adding 4.3-inch full color displays above each jog wheel deck so that users can see waveforms, cue points, loops, music libraries, effects, and all the other important visual information in Serato so that DJ's can put the laptop away for good. Check out the full walkthrough video with Chris Roman of the Numark team to see what the Numark NV has to offer.
The new Akai AFX & AMX controllers are on full display at the 2014 DJ Expo and Ross was on hand to give us a complete rundown video of the features. The Akai AFX is a small controller that lets users manipulate multi-color RGB performance pads, effects, hotcues, slicer, loops, navigation, and the new Serato Flip expasion while the Akai AMX is a mixer-like device that controls the EQ, filters, headphones, two volume linefaders, a mini-innofader crossfader and DVS Capable RCA inputs and outputs.
The new Xone:K1 controller is on hand at the 2014 DJ Expo at the Allen & Heath booth where we have Darren DeSouza giving us the full rundown of what this small but powerful controller has to offer. The Xone:K1 is essentially a Xone:K2 MIDI controller but without the built-in stereo soundcard interface. The Xone:K1 is a universal MIDI controller that can be mapped/programmed to work with any DJ software and it has six push-button rotary encoder knobs, 12 knobs, four faders, and 30 three-color backlit performance buttons to take precise control over specific software functions.
