The BeatPad 2 from Reloop is designed for live performance applications such as DJing at a party or in the club on your Mac/PC, Android 5.0 or iOS 7.0 devices. The controller features an integrated 4-channel USB audio interface, two 100mm faders, a crossfader, 16 multi-function drum pads, multi-color changing 15 cm aluminum jog wheels for scratching and cueing, as well as dedicated filters and push encoders for effects and loops when using Algorithms DJAY software.
The DJAY software includes integration with Spotify (with Premium membership), the popular Internet music streaming software. The integration allows for you to mix your Spotify library in real time, as though the files were physically stored on your computer or iOS device. Furthermore, a new Match feature in Spotify provides suggestions of songs that could be mixed with what's currently playing based on dance-ability, BPM, key harmony, style, and how well the tracks will mix.
For performance, the controller allows you to set up to 8 hot cue points per deck as well as automate loops into 8 different lengths. The eight RGB color-changing drum pads can be used to trigger macro effects when placed in Touch FX mode as well as trigger samples. Additionally, the controller offers a Jog FX mode for modulating two effects via the jog wheel. The Slicer and Slice Loop mode divides the track into short segments that allow for spontaneous remixing.
For I/O the controller includes two headphone connections on the front, two master outputs (XLR, RCA) and an auxiliary input for connecting an iPod, CD player, or turntable. BeatPad 2 ships with a USB cable, Lightning cable, Android cable, and a power supply.
