Reloop has launched an MK2 version of their popular Serato controller, the Beatmix 4. The Reloop Beatmix 4 MK2 is feature-wise similar to the original version, except for upgraded pads and an all black, sleek finish.

Here is a side to side comparison between the old and the new version:

The new look is certainly an improvement, and the new pads look decent as well. I’ll be dropping by the Reloop stand at Musikmesse tomorrow to check out the Beatmix 4 MK2 myself, so expect a video of it in action in the next few days here on Djtechzone!
