Retro Meets Refined in Reloop’s Tape 2 DJ Set Recorder
With a cool and casual retro design, Reloop’s newest product might make you do a double take.

It allows you to quickly and easily record your mix in WAV or MP3 format directly to a microSD card. Keep reading for more.
The original version of Reloop’s “Tape” recorder was unveiled back in 2013. The updated Tape 2 has undergone some significant improvements since then and now has more forward-thinking conveniences.
Key features include:
One-Click Mix Recording
Easily record your mix to microSD with the push of a button.
Built-in A/D converters offer high-grade, 24 bit sound recording to either lossless WAV or MP3 (320 kbps) formats.
Integrated lithium-ion battery
Battery gives you up to 6 hours of recording on a full charge and is easy to recharge on the go using any standard USB power supply.
Versatile Connectivity Options
Line-level or mic sources, such as CD players, DJ mixers or dynamic mics can be directly connected to the Tape 2 via the 3.5 mm jack input.
Media Interface With Customizable Look
The Tape 2 can also be connected to a computer and be used as a card reader for microSD cards. To keep track of the recorded material, all recordings on Tape 2 can be tagged with a timestamp with the help of the sync tool.
Available later this month, the Tape 2 retails for $179.99 USD. To check out full specs and more features, visit Reloop’s website.
