Reloop KUT: Classic Design Battle Mixer with Innofader + FX

We’ve seen a resurgence in turntablism-oriented gear in the last few years, so today’s announcement from Reloop seems like a natural progression. The Reloop KUT is a two channel mixer, with built-in FX and an InnoFader crossfader. To top it off, there’s a look and feel behind the battle-style design that harkens back to classic Vestax PMC mixers. Keep reading for more details.

What makes the KUT unique is that it takes a classic design and modernizes it. As I noted above, the two-tone faceplate battle design is one that DJs recognized for years as a Vestax standard. It was popularized by the Japanese company’s PMC line of mixers. Here’s a PMC-05 next to a Reloop KUT – they’re not the same mixer by any means, but it’s a striking visual callback:

Reloop’s new offering – a nod to Vestax’s classic design?

Reloop KUT Features

The basic rundown is that this mixer is a digital two channel battle mixer. It’s packed with a USB sound card (24-bit/96khZ) built-in, meaning you can run DVS through the mixer as well (pending DVS certification with a software, if required). There’s also “Dynamic FX” on both channels, in dual-pole configurations similar to the Color FX on Pioneer DJM mixers.

For precision cutting, Reloop has put in a replaceable crossfader – and included an innoFader as the default option.

Many DJs have been clamoring for more competition and options at the two-channel mixer level – and we suspect Reloop’s offering will fill a need.
