The Xone:K1 would make an ideal companion for any DVS user who are using timecode decks, but need an additional amount of control over the software functions. There are mappings already available for Traktor Pro including Remix Decks as well as mappings for other popular DJ software like Mixvibes and Ableton. The Xone:K1 also has an X-Link RJ-45 connection along side the USB port to connect other X-Link mixers and/or controllers so that they share a single USB port for connectivity. The Xone:K1 will cost around $200 when its released this month. We'll be sure to give you an insider look at the Xone:K1 at the Atlantic City DJ Expo Next week, so STAY TUNED!

Reloop RP-8000 Professional MIDI Turntable Unboxing & First Impressions [Video]

The recently released Reloop RP-8000 Professional MIDI DJ turntables sport some of the familiar Super-OEM turntable DNA including the same high-torque motor and tonearm that is found on the Stanton ST-150, Reloop RP-6000, AT-LP1240, etc. The RP-8000 also has an additional digital Pitch LED display, eight rubberized MIDI pads, four MIDI layer buttons, and an over-sized encoder knob which can all be mapped to any MIDI compatible DJ software out on the market today. The main difference with these new Reloop turntables is that they have a familiar "Technics" turntable look and layout with a brushed aluminum top plate, recessed aluminum pitch sliders, and the familiar aluminum start-stop buttons found on the corners. The Pitch range of these turntables can be switched from +/- 8%, +/- 16% and +/- 50% and there are also start and stop adjustment knobs to control the speed that the platter starts and stops the track.
