Pioneer XDJ-RX2 Digital DJ Controller
Pioneer XDJ-RX2 DJ Controller Product Overview by GAK
Pioneer have returned with a new and improved version of their impressive all-in-one DJ system, the XDJ-RX2. The two deck XDJ-RX2 DJ controller benefits from inheriting the best features of Pioneer's flagship NXS2 units.
The onboard 7-inch touch screen gives you overall control of both decks, allowing you to view waveforms, track information and also a QWERTY keyboard to make song selection easier than ever.
The mixer takes a few cues from Pioneer's staple DJM-900NXS2 including the EQs, channel faders and also the Sound Colour and Beat FX.
The performance pads are where you can get really creative with your DJ sets. With 8 multicoloured pads on each deck, they give you the ability to access up to eight instant hot cues, beat jump, beat loop and also slip loop.
The XDJ-RX2 comes bundled with a license key for the Rekordbox DJ software (worth £139.) The software allows you to manage your music collection, analysing BMP's and setting up cues and loops, ready for your sets. There is also a built-in soundcard on the unit, allowing you to connect the XDJ-RX2 to your PC/Mac via USB.
Pioneer Product OverviewWe’ve upgraded our 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 our flagship NXS2 set-up to bring you a professional DJ experience, whether you use it to control music stored on your laptop via rekordbox dj or directly from USB devices.
The 7-inch touch screen in the centre of the XDJ-RX2 displays waveforms from both decks simultaneously, plus detailed track information including sync status and playback position so you can get a quick visual reference during mixes. You can bring up a QWERTY keyboard on the display to find your next track faster, plus there’s a large rotary selector and Needle Search, Track Filter and Short Cut features inherited from the flagship CDJ-2000NXS2 multi player. Each deck has eight large, multicoloured Performance Pads for tactile control over Hot Cues, Beat Loop, Slip Loop and Beat Jump, and you can get even more creative with the Beat FX and Sound Color FX, which come from the flagship DJM-900NXS2 mixer.
The XDJ-RX2 comes bundled with a licence key for our professional DJ performance application, Rekordbox DJ. Simply activate the licence key, connect your PC/Mac to the XDJ-RX2 via a single USB cable and start using the system to trigger features and FX in the software. A limited number of the XDJ-RX2 systems we ship will also include a licence key for Rekordbox video – the Plus Pack that enables you to bring videos into your performances when you play with Rekordbox DJ.
