Reloop - RP-8000

SETUP



Connections


Normally the RP-8000 will be used as a Digital Vinyl System (DVS) also known as Timecode mode. Up to 4 x RP-8000 units may be linked (chained) as per the following diagrams. Connect one RP-8000 with a USB port of your computer and use the provided USB/link cables to connect any additional unit as Slave units.
Use the provided RCA (or any standard RCA) cables to connect each RP-8000 with the Line/Phono Inputs of your DVS Ready Audio Interface or Mixer.

For each timecode Input (RP-8000) a stereo input and a stereo output channel is required. E.g. for a 2xRP-8000 setup a USB Audio Interface 4out/4in or a USB 2-channel mixer 4out/4in is required at least.
Connect the RP-8000 units to AC using the provided cables and power on from the top On/Off switchers.

Firmware & Drivers


Firmware: Update the firmware of each unit to the latest version. Note that some of the features mentioned in this guide may not be available with outdated firmware. http://www.reloop.com/reloop-rp-8000

Drivers: No driver software is required for the Reloop RP-8000 to be installed. The device is USB class compliant and your Operating System will auto-install the necessary driver when connected via USB cable or linked as Slave unit.

VirtualDJ Setup


Download and install VirtualDJ 8 from http://www.virtualdj.com/download/index.html (in case you have not done already)

Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear. Login with your virtualdj.com account.

A Pro Infinity, a Plus or a Pro Subscription License is required to use the Reloop RP-8000 as MIDI controller.
For Timecode (DVS) use, an additional Timecode Plus license (in combination with a RP-8000 Plus license) or Pro Infinity license is required.

Without any of the above Licenses, the controller will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ.

A detection window will appear next verifying the proper MIDI connection.


Click to OK.


Unit is now to ready to operate with VirtualDJ.

Audio Setup


The RP-8000 is not offering any pre-defined audio configuration, as no built-in audio interface is available. Depending on the used USB DVS-ready sound card or DVS-ready mixer, manually create the necessary audio configuration (in case those don’t offer a pre-defined Timecode configuration).

By default VirtualDJ 8 will send the Master Output to the built-in (default) sound card of your computer.

The right-sided image is showing the pre-defined audio configuration when a Rane 64 mixer is used (DVS-ready).



MIDI Operation


The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list. The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.

Note that each unit is assigned to Decks 1,2,3,4 by default. See Software Controls on how to assign each RP8000 to control a specific VirtualDJ Deck
