Gemini has announced two forthcoming controllers, the SDJ-4000 and the MAS-1, that aim to take the next step in digital DJing and live performance.
A two-deck, four-channel USB controller, the SDJ-4000 (pictured above) is designed to remove any need for a computer in the booth. Through its hi-res 7" colour screen, the controller allows users to analyse tracks, synchronize effects to the beat and create a database of music from scratch.

As Inspected's first ever live event, expectations were high and nobody really knew what to expect, with a huge line-up consisting of xKore, Asa & Sorrow, Culprate, Gemini, and Inspector Dubplate. The fact the event was completely free of charge made this simply too good to miss.
Gemini seem to be travelling in the right direction with their latest DJ products and the ES Active Speaker Series is one finding favour with DJs who need a decent soundsystem, but also at a remarkable price.
Of late it seems that hardly a month goes by without the release of a new DJ controller, whose raison d’être is to tempt the DJ community into parting with their hard-earned cash. Of course, more choice is always a good thing for consumers but as the market becomes ever more saturated, new products must offer something unique to escape the fate of being left on a shelf to gather dust in a lonely warehouse.
