Rane FOUR Controller Review

The Lowdown The Rane Four is a high-end, four-channel DJ controller designed to offer ultimate control over Serato DJ Pro software, for performance-focused DJs. With fixed platters and a four-channel mixer, it is not a scratch unit like the Rane One, although you can scratch great on its 8/5″ platters. Instead, it focuses on features such as pro-standard hardware FX, deep Stems compatibility, and public performance smarts like dual laptop […]

Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX4 Controller Review

First Impressions / Setting up The DDJ-FLX4 is strikingly similar to the DDJ-400, which it replaces. That is a good thing: The DDJ-400 was a very popular controller which did pretty much everything right for its price range. We’re glad it didn’t take its cues from the DDJ-FLX6, which looked like a few ideas stuck together in a box that wasn’t quite right for any of them. So it’s a […]

Halloween Ends Review

Forty-four years, 13 movies, and innumerable corpses later, it sounds naïve to think “Halloween Ends” will really mark the end of anything, but like the holiday for which it’s named, it’s fun to pretend. The producers do seek to bring finality to this latest trilogy featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, although that turns out to be the only original idea they conjure in an odd, tedious film. Indeed, movie No. 13 […]

Werewolf by Night Gives Marvel A Chance To Unleash Its Monster-ous Side

Flexing different muscles, Marvel’s “Werewolf by Night” is a nifty Halloween-timed special designed as a black-and-white homage to the Universal monster movies of the 1930s and ’40s. Told with wry humor while tapping into unexplored quadrants of comics lore, it’s a bit too gory and scary for younger kids but a gift to fans that raises enticingly monster-ous possibilities. A brisk 50-ish minutes, the program assumes a fair amount of […]

Pioneer DJ DDJ-REV7 Review

The Lowdown The DDJ-REV7 is a new flagship DJ controller for Serato and Pioneer DJ, aimed at both scratch/battle DJs and open-format DJs who’d prefer a turntable-inspired system.

Rane One Review

First Impressions / Setting up It’s very much, “Honey, I shrunk the Rane set-up!” The look and feel of this mid-sized DJ controller is pure Rane: The same all-metal construction, the same type of buttons, faders, and knobs, the same color scheme and decal. It’s just… smaller. That’s not to say it isn’t a substantial device: The sharp edges and four jumbo deck-style feet give it an imposing feel, even […]
