The Pioneer XDJ-RX Rekordbox Multiplayer Is the ultimate digital controller for the next generation DJ and is the first Rekordbox USB DJ controller to feature a single LCD screen that displays information from both players simultaneously. Included is a dual waveform display, playback position, BPM and beat grids; which are all useful features when it comes to mixing and performing.
|XDJ-RX Video Introduction|
XDJ-RX DJ Controller has two CDJ-style platters that have a similar club standard layout and gives Artists on-the-spot access to top performance features including Slip Mode, Beat Sync, loops and Quantized cues. The unit's performance pads add a physical element, with immediate access to Auto Beat Loops and Hot Cues, or DJs can select and slice loops live in the mix with RX's brand-new Loop Slice function.
XDJ-RX's integrated mixer boasts four high-grade Sound Colour FX and eight Beat FX, including the hugely popular Spiral; inherited from the DJM-900NXS. Also, the mixer offers two pro-grade Microphone inputs, a LAN port and an array of high-end IN/OUT connections; and can even be used as a stand-alone two-channel DJ mixer. The two USB ports mean DJs can use both for playback while recording their set to either USB device at the same time.
The Pioneer XDJ-RX has a familiar CDJ design makes the transition from the bedroom to the club a simple task! If you are looking for a professional all-in-one multiplayer solution, with many features found on the top-of-the-range CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 setup.
|Rekordbox DJ Now Included|
Rekordbox DJ software boasts ultra-low latency and is extremely reliable, providing a rock-solid performance whatever your laptop specification. The DJ software uses a simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) with the ability to have it split into dual screen view, and the players, waveform, FX, sampler, and browser seamlessly mirror the hardware. The DJ also has the option to select either a 2/4-deck view and to have it displayed either vertically or horizontally. The software includes great effect tools such as Hot Cues, Sampler, Beat FX, Beat Jump, Sound Colour FX, and Pad FX where multiple FX chains can be created across all of the performance pads.
NEW Large full-colour screen for at-a-glance information from both players
The 7-inch, full-colour LCD screen displays information about both players simultaneously for intuitive alignment of beat grids and a visual reference to what features are in play. The screen has two modes:
Play: shows track playback position, dual waveform display with Wave Zoom, BPM and Beat Countdown, FX information, Quantize status and more.
Browse: lets DJs quickly browse and select tracks, with easy access to artwork views and Hot Cue info for each track. Plus the traffic light system shows which rekordbox tracks are in key with the track on the master deck.
Integrated unit with familiar layout and pro-DJ features
The XDJ-RX integrates two USB-driven players and a two-channel mixer, with build quality and performance features inherited from the club-standard Pioneer DJ Nexus set-up.
- Quantize: uses the track’s beat grid to ensure loops and cues are set and triggered in time with music.
- Beat Sync: looks at the rekordbox beat grids, on up to four connected players, and snaps them to the beat of the master deck.
- Slip Mode: silently continues track playback during a loop, reverse or scratch and brings the music back at the right point when the DJ exits the performance.
NEW Loop Slice added to features triggered by the tactile pads
In addition to the familiar CDJ layout, the XDJ’s platters each feature four tactile pads to add a more physical element to sets. DJs hit the pads to instantly trigger Hot Cues they’ve prepared in rekordbox, or to set Auto Beat Loops.
A new feature for the XDJ-RX is Loop Slice. DJs hit the pads to set a loop length (1, 2, 4 or 8 beat loop), then hit the pads again to slice it up and remix it on-the-fly. Single or continuous playback modes give DJs more control and the option to choose a Loop Slice style to suit any dance music genre.
Two USB ports enable DJs to record even while both ports are in use
The XDJ-RX has two USB ports, with Deck 1 enabling playback while Deck 2 allows playback and recording at the same time. So two DJs can perform together and record their set, without sacrificing an input.
Performance mixer boasts high-quality Sound Colour FX and Beat FX
The XDJ-RX’s four studio quality Sound Colour FX are inherited directly from the DJM-900NXS and feature a Lo/Hi Pass control for both channels: Noise, Gate/Comp, Crush and Filter. It also features eight of the most popular Beat FX and an improved wet/dry dial for even better control: Delay, Echo, Spiral, Reverb, Flanger, Pitch, Roll and Trans.
Driven by rekordbox USB or rekordbox app so no need for a laptop or CDs
The all-in-one XDJ-RX is designed to breathe life into tracks prepared in rekordbox or on the rekordbox app on an iPhone, iPod touch or Android smartphone. DJs simply plug in their rekordbox USB or connect their iOS/Android device (wired connection only) to load tracks directly to the XDJ-RX. Preparing tracks in rekordbox gives DJs access to a multitude of performance features including:
Loops and Cues: pre-set loops and tagged cues in rekordbox can be triggered instantly.
Beat Countdown: counts DJs down to cues from up to 64 bars away.
Key Analysis Indicator: a traffic light system in the browser shows which tracks are in a compatible musical key with the master deck.
Active Loop: an automatic loop at the end of tracks ensures DJs are never caught unprepared again.
Can be used as a stand-alone mixer thanks to multiple connections
The XDJ-RX can be connected to additional CDJs or turntables using the switchable Line/Phone input and used as a stand-alone mixer. It also features a LAN port, two MIC inputs, two Master outs and a booth out – making it a versatile solution for any set-up.
