The Reloop Touch is native Virtual DJ 8 controller and it not only supports audio but video as well. The central touch screen is big, bright and very detailed, and although it might feel a bit cramped, it certainly helps to focus on your audience instead of on your laptop. The jog wheels are relatively small and placed up high, and that might not be to the liking of many.

On the other hand, there are 4 faders per channel to control FX and video FX, which is innovative and actually refreshing. On the back, there is no booth out, but there are two master outs, one TRS and one RCA.

The Touch has a 4 channel mixer and 8 performance pads per deck, supporting performance features in Virtual DJ 8 such as cues, loops, and rolls.

PROS CONS
  • Innovative design
  • Excellent touchscreen
  • Small but high-quality jog wheels
  • Support for Video DJing
  • The design might be too different for some
