The RMP-4 hybrid media player is the latest addition to the well known Reloop RMP series. The robust tabletop designed player comprises of a CD player, USB player and performance software controller. Also included are many new performance modes and outstanding features enabling the RMP-4 to be a very powerful next generation hybrid controller.
RMP-4 boasts four significant performance modes
The RMP-4 boasts four significant performance modes in the form of Hot Cue, Loop Roll, Hot loop and Sampler which allows a separate but personalised mix. Each of the performance modes include 8 trigger pads for direct access in the selected mode. Within the Hot Loop and Hot Cue mode your hot cues/loops are able to be stored, triggered or deleted. In the Loop Roll mode there is the ability to trigger up to 8 different loop roll lengths, ranging from 1/32 to 4/1 beats. These three modes have the ability to be enhanced further due to the incorporated SLIP mode. The final mode, Sampler, allows access to up to 8 ‘one off’ samples and seamless loops.
The performance capabilities are greatly increased when using two RMP-4 players together as a result of the smart-link connection. In Sync mode, both tracks are synchronised via master/slave setting whilst the smart-link connection allows access to one USB source or DJ software at the same time.
The sound that the RMP-4 produces is very sharp and clear and remains so, even when using the high-resolution keylock function (there is no distortion)!
All important track meta data is displayed on a large DotMatrix VFD display which is quick loading and loads automatically. The navigation of the track library is handled by the screens neighbouring push encoder. There is the option to apply individual settings by using the general setup menu.
A big dual-zone jog wheel, with a touch-sensitive surface and an additional high-resolution, 100mm pitch fader, allows for manual beat matching to ± 0.01%.
In addition to the above there is also 2 x USB 2.0 ports and Database Management Software for Mac and PC for analysing the music library for quicker access. MIDI Mappings are available for popular DJ software like Traktor and Serato DJ. The formats that are supported are: MP3, WAV, AAC, AIFF. The outputs are RCA (analogue) which is included and the previously mentioned USB ports. The dimensions of the media player are: 320mm x 340.5mm x 112.6mm and weighs 3.91 kg.
