Pioneer DJ upgrades XDJ-RX
The ever restless Pioneer has upgraded its popular all-in-one DJ system, the XDJ-RX, to create the XDJ-RX2. The new two-deck, two-channel system inherits features and design traits from Pioneer’s flagship NXS2 set-up whether used to control music stored on a laptop via rekordbox dj or directly from USB devices.
The seven inch touch screen in the centre of the XDJ-RX2 displays waveforms from both decks simultaneously, plus detailed track information. Users can bring up a QWERTY keyboard on the display to find the next track faster, plus there’s a large rotary selector and Needle Search, Track Filter and Short Cut features. Each deck has eight large, multicoloured Performance Pads for tactile control over Hot Cues, Beat Loop, Slip Loop and Beat Jump, and the set-up also offers Beat FX and Sound Color FX.
The XDJ-RX2 comes bundled with a licence key for Pioneer’s professional DJ performance application, rekordbox dj, moreover a limited number of the XDJ-RX2 systems shipped will also include a licence key for rekordbox video – the Plus Pack that enables users to bring videos into their performances when used with rekordbox dj.
No UK price was quoted but Pioneer says the system has a Euro SRP of €1699.
