A few weeks ago, we reviewed the Reloop Terminal Mix 4 that we enjoyed using very much. This time Reloop has sent us the brand new Terminal Mix 2 which is the smaller and more compact two-deck version of the Terminal Mix 4. The Reloop Terminal Mix 2 has the same excellent Jog Wheels, full features, and all-metal build quality as it’s bigger brother and we let you know how it all comes together in the Full HD-Video review and the full written review at the link in the top of the description.

Garrison Stribling says:

Do you know if there is a mapping for the terminal mix 2 for virtual dj
pro?

DJbooth DJ's says:

Not sure…check ebay or Mixware-dot-net.

Akil Stokes says:

do you get paid to do these reviews

DJbooth DJ's says:

I don’t think you will have problems after one year with the N4, but the
Reloop is just more sturdy…. I personally like sturdy feeling gear.

Bubblestacka says:

Hey Blaze good review. Can the crossfader be replaced on this unit

Chase Zimmerman says:

Which is better terminal mix 2 or vestax vci 400 for scratching

DIAFRICANJEDI says:

Why isn’t this available in the states yet?

DJbooth DJ's says:

The DDJ-SR I like slightly better because it has the pads and can take
advantage of the newest features in Serato DJ 1.5 and it also comes with
the full Serato DJ software while the Terminal Mix 2 only comes with Serato
DJ Intro and you have to pay an additional $100 to get the full version…

Terry_42 says:

It is in the official Wiki on the Atomix site, so I don’t know about Hack
when it is recommended by the manufacturer…. They also write that it is
set at this setting, as they are rather conservative about CPU usage. Also
did not blame you, I ment it as a tip if people look for it. I like your
reviews and you are right to tell people what and how things work out of
the box… According to a beta-tester in VDJ 8 you should be able to adjust
this from the setting menu more easily, …

DJbooth DJ's says:

That’s close… I guess if you need more inputs go with the N4, but the
build quality, jog wheels and faders are all better on the Terminal Mix 2…

Junior Ota says:

I am between “reloop terminal mix 2” and “Pioneer DDJ-SR (2 channesl).
Which one would you recommend me please? and why? Considering that there no
much difference in prices between them.

DJbooth DJ's says:

It only has one AUX input… it does not have multiple inputs for
channels…

Hexa Gon says:

Alright! thanks for the very quick response, i’m going to pick one up this
Friday at Feedback! 😀

DJbooth DJ's says:

The MC3000 is built the best, but the TM2 or TM4 has the better overall
feel and jog wheels. All work well with Serato, so the choice is yours. I
like them all.

Chase Zimmerman says:

Ok thanks

FlossyCandy says:

What do you say between a Reloop Terminal mix 2 and the Numark N4?

supablitz says:

How much is it for this product?

Shaun Pearcey says:

Hey man, due to my N4 not being supported fully with Serato yet, I’m gunna
trade it in for either this, the mix 4 or the Denon MC300.. Out of all
those what would you say? I don’t really play around with acapellas and
instrumentals so can’t see the need for 4 channels but i could be limiting
my future here can you help suggest a better serato option (MC3000 or MIX
2/4) thanks!

Junior Ota says:

Alright, thank you very much for a fast reply! and for the reviews.

Hexa Gon says:

Hey, i’ve bought the Mix 2, i’ve tried it with Traktor Pro 2 at the store I
bought it with (this is the same controller, we unboxed it, tested it, then
boxed it in again) but now my software is misbehaving, when I load a track
into the left deck, it functions properly, but the whole right deck isn’t
working. i’ve tried googling it and called the store, but noone seems to
know what is wrong. since i’ve hooked up the controller the first time, the
right deck doesn’t let off any sounds anymore. :/

Pascal Michler says:

Thanks a lot 😉

Richard Agadjanian says:

can you record your mix on virtual dj LE??? And if you can, do you just
save it anywhere on your computer??

Hexa Gon says:

ok, i somehow got the right deck working again, but now when I want to
actually use my new controller, it’s also misbehaving. In the Traktor Pro 2
setup, I can choose control mappings for my controller, but when I select
them and press ‘close’ again, the controls aren’t on. I open up the
preferences again, and the controls are back to the basic mouse and
keyboard. is setting up always this messy?! it’s not really looking bright
so far..

DJbooth DJ's says:

You can download free trials of both, then see which one you like best…

DJ.Hibaz says:

Dear Kareem, What can you say if you want to compare this controller to the
Stanton DJC.4 , what are the differences, which is better? (I’m using VDJ
Pro, but I prefer more functionality in a controller)

Terry_42 says:

You can make the Latency of the Jogwheels go away in VDJ by editing the
settings file (in Windows it is in the registry and on Mac in the
User/Library folder). The usual jog wheel setting is about 2000, you can
easily set it down to like 860-1000 and you will have as tight jogwheels as
in Serato. If you use VDJ Pro (payed upgrade) you can further adjust the
lenght sensitivity of the jogs.

DJbooth DJ's says:

This is a GREAT controller to start out with. It’s built solid and it works
with many different DJ software so you can try out a few of them until you
find the right one…

Hexa Gon says:

I’m looking to get started into mixing, and i’m wondering what controller I
should get. Someone I know recommended this one, is this good to start
learning with?

Chase Zimmerman says:

So is the rci 400 better for a scratch dj such as myself??

DJbooth DJ's says:

Well, it depends. The best controllers for scratching are: Pioneer DDJ-SX,
VCI-380, Numark NS6, Numark 4TRAK when you use them with the software they
are intended for. The S4 and S2 are also good for scratching, but the jog
wheels are small. The Terminal Mix 2 and 4 both have great jog
wheels…faders feel great too and you can scratch good with them in Serato
DJ as well. Those are probably the best for scratching. Not sure what else
to tell you…

DJbooth DJ's says:

Try it with serato DJ intro for free and see if it works. If it works, then
there is a software problem… If it doesn’t work, then there’s a hardware
problem and you need to take it back to the store…

Shaun Pearcey says:

Thanks man, I do like the TM2 out of all 3 as it seems to be the best
option for me and also has 4 deck functionality for future uses. Should I
stick to what I know with serato or go to a traktor based unit and try it
out?

g40chris says:

why cant this be used as a stand alone mixer if it has inputs for cd
players and a power supply

DJbooth DJ's says:

No.

FlossyCandy says:

yes..but do you think that the jog wheels, faders, knobs and the other
“plastic” things on the N4 will hold a longer time, without getting
problems after like 1 year?

brian kim says:

i want this! this and my x-1 should be a good combo..

supablitz says:

have any idea when it will be stateside for purchase?…and any word on the
competition as yet?

DJbooth DJ's says:

The Terminal Mix 2 is really nice… Better Build quality, jog wheels, and
overall functionality over the Mixtrack Pro 2. The fader is better and all.
The MP2 is still nice though, just not built as well. The Denon MC2000 or
MC3000 is tight too.

Pascal Michler says:

So.. There’s no difference between the Mix 2 and the Mix 4 besides the 2
other EQ’s and Lines?

RockHardSkullzz says:

I’m getting a new DJ console around the $300 range and I was thinking
either the Reloop Terminal Mix 2 or the Numark mixtrack pro 2. Which is
better and are there any other consoles you would recommend?

Terry_42 says:

You are right of course. VDJ in its current version has some pretty hefty
downsides and Atomix is trying to mitigate the situation by releasing such
“sanctioned hacks” until VDJ 8 is released. I hope however that VDJ 8 will
become as good as they promise, so we have some more competition on the
market.

DJbooth DJ's says:

No, it should save your settings of your last MIDI controller if it is
connected to the computer before starting Traktor. Maybe try uninstalling
everything including drivers and re-install again…

DJbooth DJ's says:

There are master outputs and booth outputs, so you can connect two
different speaker setups to this… There are ways to do even more though
if you need…

DJbooth DJ's says:

They are very similar. I guess because the jog wheels on the TM2 are bigger
and feel better, I’d say that, BUT if you add the CF-X2 crossfader to the
VCI-400, then you have a much better long-life and accurate fader than
anything the TM2 can do…

supablitz says:

lol nah…i meant the give away u were having for this product
