The Gemini G2V is a budget DJ controller for Virtual DJ. It comes with VDJ LE, has aux in and balanced XLR booth out, 8 performance pads per deck, large jog wheels and a solid metal case build. All in all a pretty good deal for a controller priced at around 200 USD!

The Gemini G2V is very decent Virtual DJ controller, well featured and compatible with Traktor Pro as well.

It has 8 performance pads per channel, these can be used for samples, hot cues, and loop rolls. The jog wheels are big and responsive. The mixer has two channels, filter knobs, and a 3 band EQ.

On the back, you will find XLR booth out and even an AUX input, which is a good thing for any budget controller.

Despite being a Gemini product, the build quality is decent and this controller should be able to withstand some abuse.
