High quality hardware and a intuitive user interface

With its noble panel made of brushed aluminium the Digital Jockey 2 lies so well in the hand as never before. Its control panel is clearly arranged and is geared to all important Traktor PRO functions. The red illumination is very striking, white captions indicate the way to the second MIDI level. Together with the black chassis the Digital Jockey 2 also forms an optical unit with Native Instruments Traktor which is already included as the latest LE version.

DJs that have been working with CD players will feel at ease with the Reloop controller's second generation just as quickly as DJs that have been controlling Traktor via computer. The new, high-quality pitch faders are very delicate and do not lock at 0%.

Intelligent MIDI-mapping

The Digital Jockey 2's MIDI mapping is enormous: With the glistening white shift buttons a true double assignment of all MIDI commands becomes possible. This way it is possible to control up to 4 virtual decks simultaneously with the Digital Jockey 2 and Traktor.

With the Digital Jockey's Interface Edition 2 it is possible to directly monitor the virtual mixing channel thanks to the headphones input; this way the sound system can also be directly connected by cable to the Interface Edition.

Reloop hat mit der neuen Version der Digital Jockey 2 Interface Edition einen praktischen und komfortabel nutzbaren Controller im Angebot.
Jede Applikation stellt einen gewissen Anspruch an ihren MIDI-Zuspieler - und wenn es um Traktor geht, haben sich die Mannen bei Reloop über dieses Programm lang und breit Gedanken gemacht und diese professionell umgesetzt.
In Sachen Verarbeitung und Ausstattung spielt der Digital Jockey 2 aber locker in der 500-Euro-Klasse der Vestax-Referenz VCI-100 (Test in c't 7/10).
Hat man sich mit den Layout einmal vertraut gemacht, gestaltet sich die Arbeit mit dem DJ2 ME äußerst angenehm. Vor allem die extrem geringe Latenz, der (bis auf das Hintergrundflirren) sehr gute Klang der Sound-Karte und die angenehm bedienbaren Jogwheels machen die Konsole zu einem - in dieser Preisklasse - ernst zu nehmenden Rivalen für Herkules DJ RMX, Vestax VCI-100 und Konsorten.
Ein sehr gutes Gerät mit allem drum und dran, was sich nach kurzer Eingewöhnung intuitiv bedienen lässt.
En general es muy difíl eccontrar algún fallo a este controlador (aparte de las ruedas jog que quizá giran un pulín rápido), puesto que la mayoría de las quejas recaen en el mapeado.
The feel of the controls makes using the DJ2 a pleasure, team this up with Traktor and you are onto a winner.
Preis-Leistung hervorragend! Toller, intuitiv zu bedienender Controller. Die Materialqualität ist durchweg gelungen, wenn mir auch die Dreh-Potis ein wenig zu Plaste-Like wirken. Die Jogwheels sind wirklich super. Die Anordnung der Elemente und das Layout für Traktor sind gelungen. Wer mehr will, muss auch mehr zahlen, wobei ich den Mehrpreis einiger anderer Controller wohl eher in der Verwendung hochwertigerer Materialien begründet sehe.
Der deutsche Hersteller ist schon lange sehr emsig im DJ-Sektor zugange und produziert dementsprechend auch DJ-Controller – dieser hier bietet Kontrollen für zwei Decks und möchte vor allem Einsteiger überzeugen.
