Gemini Releases New GMiX Media Controller System
Adding to their GMX range, Gemini has released the GMiX; its new multi-format media controller. As a high-resolution USB/MIDI software controller with built-in professional 24-bit PC/MAC audio interface, the GMiX is perfect for the mobile DJ who needs a portable and multi-functional device and is ideal for quick set-up in small venues.
Working as an independent media player or as a 24-bit PC/MAC audio interface over USB 2.0, the GMX is professional from the inside out. With multiple high quality output options – including an RCA booth output with dedicated volume control and front 1/8” and 1/4” headphone outputs – monitoring, recording, and playback through a sound system are simultaneously available via balanced XLR and RCA master outputs.
DJs can play tracks from a single USB drive or from a laptop as a versatile software controller for Virtual DJ (or another host application). Direct playback of MP3, WAV, AAC, and AIFF files from a USB memory device also allows the GMX to operate independent of the laptop and newly designed touch-sensitive mechanical jog wheels and eight large performance pads on each deck ensure total control over playback. The GMiX also comes with Virtual DJ LE and VCASE music management software.
The new mechanical and touch sensitive jog wheels allow users to reach new levels when it comes to scratching, beat juggling, or finding track points with precision. With advanced tools - including Hot Cues, a Loop section with auto and manual loop, reverse, and dedicated filters on each deck - the mix decisions you make are instantly realised at the push of a button. The GMiX features a 2-channel mixer with 3-band EQ and gain control on each channel, as well as a front 1/4” microphone input, also with gain control.
The high-resolution USB/MIDI data-stream contains 14-bits of continual control information, meaning that every turn of a knob or jog wheel can have the precision of 16,384 possible level settings. This makes GMiX the ideal choice for precise pitch and tempo control or any other function DJs desire to control within their software of choice. The high-contrast screens, with adjustable waveform displays, allow easy visualisation of the changes a user is making to each of their tracks and the Variable Pitch Control, Master Tempo control, and BPM Lock allow DJs to paint the big picture by matching tempos and keys together with ease.
