Looking for a convenient way to record your DJ mixes without taxing your laptop? How about a fun way to archive and distribute mixes with friends? Itâ€™s all possible with the Reloop Tape 2 â€” the 6-hour portable WAV/MP3 recorder with onboard microSD slot. The Tape 2 design is as straightforward as it comes: simply plug your mixer or computer into the 1/8" TRS input, press record, and mix away. Your set is recorded directly onto a microSD (up to 128GB; not included) as a high-quality 24/48 WAV or 320 kbps MP3, which you can then archive or play back via 1/8" TRS out. A variable input level helps you reduce noise and distortion. And once the batteryâ€™s flat, a quick charge over USB is all it takes to prepare the Tape 2 for the next night. Best of all, the Reloop Tape 2 does it all without sucking precious USB ports and power from your performance laptop. And for a custom look, the three sets of sticker skins are included.
Many Sweetwater Sales Engineers could tell you stories about recording their first albums onto cassette tapes. Crazier still, some of our more, shall we say, classically trained DJs reminisce about making mixtapes at block parties where they had to plug their gear into street lights for power. Yes, Tape 2 is small and easy to keep in your laptop bag for gigs. Yes, it has all of the professional connectivity you need to record any performance straight from your mixer. But our favorite thing about Tape 2 has to be its cool retro look â€” taking us all back to our most formative music-making years. Reloop pays homage to that old-school medium with Tape 2â€™s nostalgic design combined with powerful recording capabilities for the modern DJ.
