Mix Beats With Any Device
Cross Platform Controller: Made for iPad, Android & Mac. The BeatPad 2 from Reloop is the only professional and truly reliable cross-platform controller that is able to completely utilize the full potential of the award-winning DJAY 2 mixing software from Algoriddim.
Based on the original BeatPad controller, which quickly established itself as an affordable yet professional DJ tool for “Smart-Device DJs“, the BeatPad 2 works plug-and-play across all platforms. Whether you’re using DJAY 2 on your iOS or Android device, or using DJAY Pro on Mac– the integration is seamless and completely stress-free. No other hardware offers such versatile support, and inside the box with the BeatPad 2 are USB, Apple Lightning and Android OTG cables.
Slicer, loop, sampler and dynamic multi-effect control are just a few of the new, exciting remixing possibilities that can now be controlled directly via the BeatPad 2.The touch-sensitive drum pads with smart RGB illumination give you visual feedback for the selected mode so you know exactly what you’re doing. Colour-Coded Hot Cue & Sampler Mode Matching the colours of the software, 8 cue points and 6 samples per deck can be triggered straight from the BeatPad 2’s control surface.
Auto-Loop / Bounced Loop Mode
With Auto-Loop it is possible to activate an automated loop in 8 different lengths via the performance pads. Bounce Loop fires 8 different loop rolls with the touch of a button.
Touch FX / Jog FX Mode
Touch FX and Jog FX mode are two new, creative options for mixing with DJAY 2’s extensive effects section. In Touch FX mode you can define and dynamically use a total of 8 different FX presets via the performance pads. The effect’s intensity is influenced by the pressure applied to the pad. Jog FX mode offers the possibility to modulate two effects via the jog wheel. This way, effect parameters as well as the dry/wet intensity can be adjusted with optimum accuracy. The pulsing multi-colour LEDs at the jog wheels’ edge give you visual feedback regarding effect selection and parameter adjustments.
Slicer / Slice Loop Mode
BeatPad 2 is the first controller on the market that can directly control DJAY 2’s Slice and Slice Loop mode. In Slicer mode, the track is divided into short segments that allow spontaneous remixing. In Slice Loop mode, loops can be deconstructed in the same way. EQ Preset Switch for Filter / 3-Band EQ
