It seems like every year, more products are being aimed at the mobile platform. Whether it is for the tablet market or the smartphone market, companies believe that a controller is what people want. This year, the people at Reloop are bringing a portable solution to this growing trend with their controller, the MIXTOUR for the popular mobile software djay.

If it looks familiar to some of you, it is because it probably is. The MIXTURE takes the similar form factor of at Traktor Control Z1, and up the functionality with more buttons for a more seamless interaction with the software. It claims to be the only mobile controller that supports PC/MAC, IOS and Android apps. It features performance pads with multiple modes, instant sound filters and macro FX mode.

This will probably be at display at NAMM this year, as it will be available at the end of January for 179 euros or about 199 US dollars. We will be sure to get it to our lab and give you a comprehensive review on this unit. Check out the full press release below for more info.

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.

NAMM 2016: Mixars DJ Gear

Mixars... that probably does not sound familiar to you. It probably doesn’t ring any bells because it's a new DJ gear manufacturing company... They made their debut at NAMM this year, and they are bringing out products geared at the battle DJ in the form of the DUO and CUT mixers and the LTA Super-OEM turntable.

[Video] 2013 DJ Expo - Virtual DJ Booth

Virtual DJ was back at the Atlantic City DJ Expo this year with lots of different manufacturer controllers as almost all DJ controllers out there come with one version of VDJ or another. And as such, almost every manufacturer had their gear on display at the VDJ booth so that they can show how versatile the software truly is. There were Numark Mixtrack Quad controllers, Mixtrack Edge Controllers, Pioneer CDJ's, Stanton gear, and so much more. Oh and VDJ8 was there as well.

[Video] DIY Innofader PNP + Traktor Kontrol Z2

For the past few years, there's been one DJ crossfader on the market that seems to rise above the competition. The Innofader is a durable and highly customizable fader that can be purchased and installed to upgrade your current crossfader or linefaders found on a DJ Mixer or DJ Controller. The Innofader can work with many different mixers or controllers and can be adjusted in many different ways so the DJ gets a seriously customized feel to suit his/her fader-needs. Users can adjust the tension, the cut-in distance, and the sharpness of the curve on the Innofader. The Innofader comes in many different models such as the Innobender and the Innofader PNP which work with various styles of DJ Mixers and Controllers. Audio Innovative was gracious enough to send me a new Innofader PNP to show the masses just how easy it is to install inside the all new Traktor Kontrol Z2. Check out the DIY video after the jump.
