Gemini, one of the more silent and inconspicuous players in the digital DJ industry, are stepping up and launching a brand new controller this year at NAMM – the Gemini G4V. It’s another 4-channel controller, with a layout that feels extremely familiar to anyone who’s spent time around Vestax VCI-400 or the recently introduced Pioneer DDJ-SX.
While we’re still waiting for the complete technical specs and product photos that aren’t computer generated like the image above, the press release sheds a bit more info on what users can expect.
The G4V transforms the standard DJ controller into a dynamic performance controller. With 2 full-featured DJ decks, touch-sensitive jog wheels, 4 channels of audio with 3-band EQ and filter controls, and 16 multi-function performance pads and rotary encoders the G4V delivers the sought after controls for spontaneous and intuitive track playback and manipulation.
The pre-mapped FX controls for Virtual DJ bring immediate results upon first use, while the fully MIDI mappable and high-resolution 14-bit controls give the G4V the ability to grow alongside advances in skill and in DJ software. The multi-function performance pads and rotary encoders are detailed and responsive enough for a vast array of assignments and the vivid lighting of the performance pads, function buttons, and active LED level monitors give the visual feedback required in complicated performances where a computer screen can be pressed for space.
With a professional sounding 24-bit PC/MAC audio interface and all the I/O’s needed to monitor, record, playback, and connect a microphone or an auxiliary source the sound leaving the G4V is only limited by the imagination of the DJ behind it.
It could be work better on Serato…
better pictures and some hands on descriptions.
We got video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc0oT4Eg-Mw It’s real 🙂 And A another video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T200F7b0k1Q 🙂
GOOD+ Long pitch fader
+ Big drumpads / hot-cues
+ Full 4-channel mixer with filter!
+ Smart crossfader position buttons
+ Big wheels
– FX section
Looks to be a full blown FX section actually, as well as manual and auto loop and sample banks with nav. Also independent channel trim/gain u/v and filters! The mockup is blurry, but i’m makin out the writing on the wall and if they follow through Gemini might just get serious in the game.
So… does this thing has a crossfader??
yeah bro.. This is a mockup photo. I seen a copy of this photo elsewhere and it’s ‘fuller’ and the x-fader is *nearly* the same width as the up faders. Gemini ain’t new to the game, but they been having a hard time ‘getting it right’ for a long time keeping up with others. I’m kind of excited to see this and hope it’s successful.
Maybe this image will better suit DJTT’s compressed version?
Hey DJTT staff, replace the image!
It was a joke..
Then make it funny next time 😛
I don’t understand why these guys don’t hire a decent designer, just because it’s a gemini doesn’t mean you have to have horrible designs(or does it?), its all about the details…
point in case……Gemini DJ in a box. comes with all the gear you dont want to start failing @ djing. they just want your money in their pocket. capitalize on the DJ craze and make very poor quality products.
Uh? Where are the cue and play buttons?
look in the comments, there is a better picture..
So basically it’s a “Performance Pad” controller for VDJ
ddjt has a better rendering, has all play, cue, cup, sync.
dont even need to see it in person to know its gonna break / sound like shit / fader crackle
like the idea, doubtful of the execution
