Reloop unveils Neon Serato DJ controller

Reloop has announced Neon, a new controller for Serato DJ users. Promising to "elevate your performance to a whole new level", this official Serato accessory features eight touch-sensitive RGB drum pads with aftertouch that can be used to trigger samples, cues, loops and effects.
