Not much info is available at this time, but expect DJbooth.net to provide you with full coverage and a full written review when these babies hit the market! Judging from the pictures, the CDJ-700 and the CDMP-2700 will both include full color displays and they both "seem" to be built rugged. The CDJ-700 unit looks a lot like the Pioneer offerings with a platter position LED indicator right in the middle of the jog wheel. Let's just hope that they get it right and the price is within reach. Details and Press Release (after the pics) Below.

[Video] 2012 DJ Expo - Gemini CDMP-7000 Rundown

While we were over at the Gemini Booth at the 2012 Atlantic City DJ Expo we were treated to the CDJ-650 rundown video and we were also given a full rundown video of the new CDMP-7000. The Gemini DJ CDMP-7000 can work as a MIDI controller, a stand alone mixer, or independent CDJ-700's with their own dedicated Line level outputs. The Mixer can be used on its own and so can the decks. Basically what we have here is a full 3-channel mixer with two CDJ-700's mashed together into one unit. Check the rundown video after the jump.
