My everyday DJ mix recording device has just received a new update. The Reloop Tape 2.0 is the latest edition of the company's compact DJ recording device, adding more portability and versatility to the original.  

The Reloop Tape 2.0 still looks like our beloved '80s cassette tapes, but now DJ's don't have to lug around a separate power adapter and big USB stick to make it all work. The Reloop Tape 2.0 has an internal rechargeable battery and a MicroSD card slot for saving MP3 and WAV files while you're in the mix.

Additionally, the internal battery lasts up to six hours on a full charge and the device can easily be charged using a standard USB power supply. The Reloop Tape 2.0 also has an input gain knob so users can get the perfect mix volume for their set, and a 3.5mm input and another 3.5mm output so users can record their sets even when their device doesn't have a separate or dedicated recording output.

The only option missing from Reloop Tape 2.0 that was present on the first Reloop Tape is the ability to record phono vinyl records without the use of a line level amp. Aside from this minor detail, the Reloop Tape 2.0 is definitely a worthy update.

The Reloop Tape 2.0, which we plan to review in the coming weeks, is available now for $150.

NAMM 2014: Reloop Terminal Mix 8 [Video]

Reloop has just announced their new four-deck flagship controller called the Terminal Mix 8 at this year's NAMM show. The Terminal Mix 8 looks to have much of the same DNA as the successful Terminal Mix 4, while adding 16 Multi-color back-lit Velocity Sensitive Performance Pads for functions within Serato DJ such as hot cues, loops, samples, and slicer. The pads can also be divided into two parts so the user can use the top row of pads for one function such as loops while the bottom row of pads can control another function such as hot cues.
