Based on the original BeatPad controller, which quickly established itself as an affordable yet professional DJ tool for Smart-Device DJs, the BeatPad 2 works plug-and-play across all platforms. Whether you're using DJAY 2 on your iOS or Android device, or using DJAY Pro on Mac.
New, Multi-Sensorial Pad Mode Section
Slicer, loop, sampler and dynamic multi-effect control are just a few of the new, exciting remixing possibilities that can now be controlled directly via the BeatPad 2.
Matching the colours of the software, 8 cue points and 6 samples per deck can be triggered straight from the BeatPad 2's control surface.
Auto-Loop / Bounced Loop Mode
With Auto-Loop it is possible to activate an automated loop in 8 different lengths via the performance pads. Bounce Loop fires 8 different loop rolls with the touch of a button.
Touch FX and Jog FX mode are two new, creative options for mixing with DJAY 2's extensive effects section. In Touch FX mode you can define and dynamically use a total of 8 different FX presets via the performance pads. The effect's intensity is influenced by the pressure applied to the pad.
EQ Preset Switch for Filter / 3-Band EQ
Thanks to the flexible EQ preset switch on the device's rear side, each channel can be adjusted according to the DJ's individual requirements. You can either switch the dedicated filter in the channel strip to a low and high pass filter, or expand the mixing surface to include a 3-band EQ.
With the key lock tool, a track's tone pitch can be kept when changing the tempo. For harmonic mixing, the key match feature automatically adjusts the key to mirror the current track.
Advanced Track Management
Track preview is now possible within the browser function without needing to load a track, while 'Queue List' represents a virtual waiting queue where tracks can be dropped on the fly. With the library switch button you can quickly change between the built-in and Spotify libraries. BeatPad 2 also allows for editing of beat grids from the hardware. The start point can be reset via the jog wheel, if the beat does not accurately match the grid.
Connections are also well thought out with two headphone connections on the front side, two master outputs (XLR and RCA) and even an aux input for iPod, CD player or turntable on the back of the device.
