There’s another standalone DJ setup coming today at NAMM, a new launch from Gemini DJ, the SDJ-2000. This is a four channel all-in-one controller/mixer, with a 7-inch screen above the mixer section for loading and playing tracks. It looks pretty similar to the Pioneer DJ XDJ-RX and the just-announced Denon MCX-8000; keep reading for more details.
SDJ-2000 Standalone Controller
What we know so far: Gemini’s new standalone gear is very inspired by other gear out there on the market, but Gemini has developed their own accompanying Mac/PC software, VCase, to act as the music management software (like Engine or Rekordbox). There’s also the capability to expand the control of the hardware by plugging in Gemini MDJ-1000 media players via Ethernet, allowing control of four decks in that way instead of swapping decks between 1/3 or 2/4.
The main SDJ-2000 features include:
- two decks with large, flat jogwheels
- Loop control, effect knobs and pads 4-channel mixer
- 7 ” screen for onboard software (track data, etc)
- 4 deck control, onboard or by plugging in two Gemini MDJ-1000s
- 6 analog stereo inputs
- 2 master outputs (XLR & RCA) + Booth output
No mention of price or launch dates yet from Gemini – we’ll find out more later today at the NAMM show floor. See all the NAMM updates here, or follow us on Twitter orInstagram for up-to-the-minute updates and unique insights.
