Reloop’s adding a new entrant into the controller fray, the heart of which is a new performance pad section that brings the Terminal Mix 8 up to what’s rapidly becoming an industry standard: 8 multi-color drum pads for triggering cues, slices, samples, and loops. Particularly interesting is that the color-coded pads have the ability to go into “Dual” mode – meaning each row can be set for different modes (ex: the top row set to loops, the bottom set to cue points).
The controller has a 4 channel mixer, and each channel has a dedicated hardware filter. There’s also the expected slice, loop, and SP6 sampler modes that mirror the functionality of the DDJ-SX (and most other Serato DJ controllers), as well as an effect section. See the full set of controls and features in their intro video:
The Terminal Mix 8 includes a full version of Serato DJ, and will be available in February for €579 / ~$792.
