CD/MP3/USB/MIDI Player with Scratch Functions
The Reloop RMP-2.5 Alpha is the latest member of Reloop's RMP-series and a true cross media player with additional MIDI function.
Besides playing current audio formats such as WAV and MP3 from CD, CD-R, memory stick or hard disk drive, it is also possible to control any MIDI compatible DJ software, for example Traktor, thanks to the RMP-2.5's full MIDI compatibility. All the user interface's control elements send out MIDI commands; this way this media player becomes the perfect controller for mixing softwares. Via the shift function all control elements are double assigned with MIDI commands which makes it possible to control two virtual decks with only one RMP-2.5 Alpha. The assignments can be stored as MIDI presets for various purposes.
No matter whether audio or MIDI, with the large, touch sensitive jog wheel, the control feeling is always vinyl-like and literally invites you to scratching and beat juggling. Its high-resolution micro pitch of up to 0.02% allows pitch adjustments and bending with the highest precision. The shock-absorbing bearing of the device's feet, as already known from the RMP-3, secures the RMP-2.5 from getting out of place.
Moreover, the RMP-2.5 disposes of some new cool features: In order to play music from one USB source on two players the RMP-2.5 Alpha comes with the possibility to be connected to a further RMP-2.5 Alpha via USB audio link. Also you can use the Data Base Builder software to analyse the desired USB drives, thus obtaining quicker and filtered results.
Another very convenient feature is the Next Track function: During playback you can already select the next track. As combination of CD/MP3 player, USB mass storage media player and MIDI software controller, the Reloop RMP-2.5 Alpha is up to all requirements of modern DJ business.
