Record your best electronic music and mixes using Reloop Tape

Tape by Reloop allows DJs to record live mixes directly to a USB drive.

Compact and retro in design, TAPE records and stores MP3 recordings with simplicity – insert a USB drive, run the mixer into the 3.5mm stereo jack, and press record.

Even mixers that do not feature a separate record output can be connected as Reloop has included a smart Thru port which routes the signal to the amplifier or speakers.

With TAPE’s phono/line switch and grounding post, DJs can quickly convert vinyl to MP3.  Another switch toggles between 192 and 320kbps MP3 recording quality.

Especially helpful in the dark places, LEDs illuminate the status of the power supply, USB drive, recording, and show whether the incoming levels are peaking or in the green.

Missing from TAPE are internal storage, SD slot, battery, digital input and a lossless/uncompressed recording option.  TAPE ships with RCA-to-stereo jack (3.5 mm) recording cable with grounding, AC power supply, and 3 sets of stickers for a customizable retro look – boom box not included.
