Pioneer RMX-500 - Gearjunkies review

Effect processors today are part of the standard tools DJs use. Many DJ mixers have them build in and DJ software features effects as well. Overall the available choice is overwhelming. Yet as DJ hardware effect processors Pioneer is the market leader. Build in to the DJM900 and DJM2000, which are also the default standards in most clubs. Also the standalone RMX-1000 effect processor is well known amongst DJs and even producers. So Pioneer came with the RMX-500 its little brother. Because we like the RMX-1000 very much we were keen to check out the RMX-500 and put the results in this review.

Reloop BeatMix 4 DJ Serato controller- Gearjunkies Review

The new generation of DJs uses controllers, especially the DJs playing at home. They don't buy an expensive CDJ set anymore but start out using a controller and a laptop or tablet. In the stores these controllers are the big sellers. Advantage of this is that there is an abundance of choice. Budget wise, style and possibilities you can make the choices you want. Especially for the people that start out you can start with a modest budget because playing can be an expensive hobby. So the majority of manufacturers will enable this like for example with the Beatmix4 of Reloop with recently a reduced price. Does the Reloop Beatmix4 give value for money or should you save money for something else? Our opinion about this controller with a limited price tag will follow.

Audiorealism ReDominator - Gearjunkies review

Today we are going back into time to the beginning of the 90s. One sound changed a whole part of the dance music scene. It's patch title was: What the F.., for those in the know immediately know what i'm talking about. One of the very first records i heard it's sound on was Mentasm by Joey Beltram. But that one sound got very famous with the release of Human Resource's Dominator. This sound was later dubbed a Hoover since it sounded a little like a vacuumcleaner. This massive sound came from a small synth called the Roland Alpha Juno 2. Audiorealism took on the big task of recreating this old love of many of us into ReDominator.
