[Video] Reloop Jockey 3 Remix Announced

Reloop has just announced a new update to their already released DJ controller that is sure to have Traktor DJ's up on their toes. The new Reloop Jockey 3 Remix is now here and it brings with it a new minimal layout and the new performance section with intelligent tri-colour LED illumination along with a new clever mapping for Traktor Pro 2.6 users that will allow DJ's to play in Track Deck Mode (normal playback), Sample Mode (triggering/manipulating samples), and the Remix Mode (Jog Wheel & Fader controlled Effects).

Most of the layout and design of the Reloop Jockey 3 Remix is unchanged from the original with its all metal and heavy-duty construction and good fader/jog wheel feel. Check out my original Video review of the Reloop Jockey 3 ME to get an idea of what to expect on the new machine. I will re-do the review as soon as we get our hands on one of these Remix editions, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the demo video by DJ Angelo below and then scroll down for all the official documentation on the new Reloop Jockey 3 Remix.

Reloop Jockey 3 Remix: The Next Level Controller 2.0

The new edition of the award-winning Jockey 3 ME: Jockey 3 Remix. As the name already suggests, this controller aims at advanced Traktor PRO users who want to elevate their mix to the next level: Live sampling, remixing and spectacular effect manipulation. All of the Jockey 3 ME’s popular features, such as the high-quality manufacturing, 24 bit BurrBrown interface, high-resoultion jog wheels or stand alone mixing function, have been kept.

Jockey 3 Remix

Tri-Colour LED illumination
Besides the new minimal layout and the new performance section with intelligent tri-colour LED illumination, a completely new control concept has been realized here, which disposes of 3 different mighty modes.

Track Deck Mode
In this mode you have total control over all important deck features like playback, cue/loop or effect control. And with the new dedicated beatjump buttons you can jump to an appropriate beat faster than ever before.

Sample Mode
In Sample Mode (blue illumination) it is possible to access all a sample deck’s important parameters without having to switch the deck. This way you can quickly record, load or trigger samples. In the sample deck samples can be scratched, filtered and modulated. Moreover, you will always have a lock on volume control thanks to the sample.

Remix Mode
The Remix Mode (green illumination) is basically the playgound for creative mixers and will give pleasure to all effect lovers. The Jockey 3 Remix is the first controller on the market that can combine powerful effect combos with the push of a button, allowing for modulation via jog wheel, pitchfaders or linefaders. Dramatic build-ups in a track can be realized in no time. The independent Roll & Mash modes that can be used to either chop up a track or re-trigger it on-the-fly, are also brand-new.
