Reloop’s new touchscreen DJ controller changes the game

Re-invent the way you DJ with Reloop TOUCH, their new DJ controller with a worlds-first addition – a full colour touchscreen to mix with.

Reloop’s new DJ controller blags the claim of creating the world’s first DJ controller with a 7″ touchscreen built into its body. Developed in association with Virtual DJ the controller has been optimised to run straight into VirtualDJ and give you unparalleled power in your mixes.

With a full colour, 7-inch DJs have a whole new world of accessibility available. The screen can display waveforms for in-depth editing, track and queue information for both sides of the deck and more helpful info. Using the XY panel you can take real-time control over effects, browse tracks easily, organise your library within the controller, pull up various visualisations of performance modes. You can even work with video and audio to create unique visual possibilities within your set.

The screen is sick, but what’s going on beyond that? TOUCH is designed in a classic 4-channel club mixer layout and with a combined EQ/filter section. Via colour-coded deck switching, DJs will always know which deck is currently playing. The two deck sections are equipped with high-resolution jog wheels, which are perfect for pitch-bending thanks to their special non-slip design.

Two fader-FX units offer direct control over effect and video parameters via four short-throw linefaders each. The multi-functional XCoder controls various modes, combining three convenient functions (Loop Size, Key and Grid Adjust) to use with one encoder.

The 8 RGB performance pads are located below the respective fader-FX unit, offering a large number of creative mixing possibilities. As well as classic performance modes such as HOT CUE, ROLL, SLICER, SAMPLER, CUE LOOP, SAVED LOOP, BEAT JUMP, and KEY CUE, TOUCH also offers PAD MODE, allowing you to switch between pad functions and SPLIT MODE, making it possible to combine up to two different modes at the same time. All performance modes can be adjusted extensively via the PARAM button.

TOUCH has a powerful built-in audio interface with high-retention USB port which is especially sturdy, protecting you from unwanted cable pull-outs. As well as both balanced and unbalanced master outs (XLR/RCA), there are two headphones connections (3.5 and 6.3 mm) and a mic input connection (6.3 mm). Moreover TOUCH is fully MIDI compatible with other DJ and audio software.

The Reloop TOUCH DJ controller will release next month (November) and will be available for the cool price of $699/£620.
