The Gemini G4V will come bundled with an edition of Virtual DJ and will enable users to control up to four decks at a time.

The Gemini G4V has 3-band EQ and separate High/Low Pass filters for each deck. The eight performance pads remind me of the Vestax VCI-380 or the newly released Pioneer DDJ-SX which both work with Serato, but perhaps Virtual DJ has something cool up their sleeve for this controller...Or perhaps we can use this controller with Serato DJ as well... Stay tuned as we'll get many more details as NAMM gears ahead.
