Reloop Jockey III Master Edition: Full Metal Jockey

Leading European DJ Manufacturer Releases Flagship Traktor Pro Controller

North Hollywood, CA, May 24th, 2011 – Reloop is proud to introduce the Jockey III Master Edition, its new flagship Traktor Pro controller, audio interface and stand-alone digital mixer. From its bulletproof metal body to its ultra high resolution jog wheels and BurrBrown® converters, Jockey III is constructed only from the highest quality components, ensuring a high standard of durability and reliability for professional DJ’s.

Jockey III enables control of all four Traktor Pro decks thanks to its “classic mixer-style” smart deck switching system, and includes 90 fully assignable MIDI controls designed especially for Traktor’s advanced functions like hot cue points, smart loops, effects and track browsing. With the Jockey III, Reloop introduces new, larger jog wheels with an impressive 4096 impulses per rotation resolution and mechanical tension control for custom adjustment of the wheels’ response. Also featured are high quality encoders with LED rings for precise control and feedback over loops and effects and rubberized buttons for fast trigger action of cue points and samples.

On the audio side, the included interface features 24 bit / 96 kHz BurrBrown® AD/DA converters, two pairs of phono/line inputs to connect CD players or turntables, a microphone input (which can be routed to the software for recording, or direct to the output for live use), a headphone output with dual jacks, booth output and balanced master output.

As if being a top notch controller and audio interface isn’t engouh, the unit is also fully capable of running without a computer. Simply connect a pair of decks to the rear inputs, and use the mixer section to mix the old fashion way, but in full digital flavor: Jockey III is a full featured stand-alone digital mixer!

The Reloop Jockey III Master Edition will be in stores June 15th at a competitive street price of $699.99 ($899.99 MSRP), including Traktor LE. All Reloop controllers purchased after January1st, 2011 are eligible for a free upgrade to Traktor 2 LE.
