Gemini just released their second Digital DJ Controller and it looks like quite a versitile controller. It's got alot of buttons and a built-in soundcard like most controllers... The exciting thing is that you get all this for about $250 USD!
It's got big buttons and rotary buttons, but are missing two rotary knobs and som button placement to fully support the design of the effects section in Traktor. It's also got a led indicator on each channel, but that requires som heavy duty hardware to support. They have however a section that would support a very good workflow on jumping, moving and looping. The transport buttons are a bit small.
It's got alot of connections both XLR and RCA. The built-in Soundcard is said to have a frequency from 20 Hz-20kHz, but the specs doesn't say anything about the sample or bit rates... Probably not top notch, but it has to be atleast 16 bit... :)
I haven't thought about or looked on Gemini products since I started DJing. Then only reason why we used Gemini was because it was the cheapest products on the market and that also reflected the poor quality of their products, but that was back in the 1990's. :) Hopefully they've improved in the last 20 years and are now delivering reasonably good quality products. Who knows? :)
