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.

The eight rubberized MIDI pads can be used to control functions such as hotcues, loops, samples, or anything else the user wants to trigger. The four MIDI layer mode buttons are used to change the function of the eight bigger pads. The over-sized encoder knob can be used to browse through the library of music and select tracks, playlists, or folders. The RP-8000 turntables also have a USB link port to daisy-chain up to four RP-8000's together so the user only has to connect one turntable to the computer to save those precious USB ports. The full written and video reviews are now in the works, but be sure to check out our Unboxing & First Impressions video above to see what comes in the box.
