Earlier today, Reloop DJ announced their brand new auxiliary DJ controller for Serato DJ called the Reloop Neon. This small pad controller is similar to the recently released
which also works with Serato DJ but the Reloop Neon is even more compact and is mapped to control all four deck's pad functions from a single Neon device including: Sampler, Pad FX, Slicer, Looped Slicer, Cue, Flip, Hot Loops, Loop, and Manual Loop.
The new Reloop Neon is an official Serato Accessory which allows users to unlock the "super" features within Serato DJ for those users who are using DVS systems or DJ controllers without the infamous eight rubberized pads. The Serato DJ features that can be controlled from the Neon surface are the SP-6 sampler (with playback-mode LED indicators for each slot), Pad FX, Slicer modes, hotcues, the new Flip Mode, and three different loop modes. There are also two endless push encoders for volume control, track navigation, loop editing as well as loop Shift and loop roll functions.
Even though the Reloop Neon can control all four decks of pad goodness from a single device, users can also link multiple Neon's together using a small connector cable to give each deck its own control surface. When two of the Neon's are linked together, the user only needs to use a single USB cable to connect both devices to the computer. The Reloop Neon will be available for only $169 each in October 2014. We'll have one in the lab shortly for the full Unboxing & Review treatment shortly, so stay tuned!
