Reloop has announced its first digital mixing controller designed for Serato: Terminal Mix 4. The new addition to Reloop Family offers a wealth of features, including 3-fold EQ with intelligent kill technique and filter modulation capabilities per channel. Any of the 4 channels can be easily assigned to the crossfader via the controls on the front panel, where you will also be able to adjust the curve of the crossfader. In addition to the popular Trax Encoder, the master section is now equipped with four 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, at an impressive XXL diameter of 15.5cm, have also been enhanced by 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. Trigger Action Deluxe: 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 of many DJs, and for the first time have integrated a 14 bit pitch fader with 100mm increments, allowing for ultra-precise mixing and blending.
Power House Interface: 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 (6.3 mm & 3.5 mm), 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 routed to the master or even software.
Terminal Mix comes ‘plug and play’ ready with Serato DJ Intro and a Virtual DJ 4-Deck LE (Reloop edition). Traktor Pro 2 mappings are also available.
