PIONEER DJ: XDJ-RX2 CONTROLLER
Pioneer DJ have upgraded their 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 the flagship NXS2 set-up, 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 from Rekordbox DJ (worth £99) and will be available from September 2017 at an SRP of €1699 including VAT.
XDJ-RX2: KEY FEATURES
7-inch touch screen and other features from the CDJ-2000NXS2
Stay in control of your performances at all times with help from the 7-inch touch screen in the centre of the XDJ-RX2. Keep an eye on waveforms and detailed track information, including sync status, from both decks at the same time to ensure seamless mixing. Use Wave Zoom for a closer look at the current playback position and call up a QWERTY keyboard to quickly find the next track you want to play. You can also browse through tracks using the large rotary selector and Needle Search, Track Filter and Short Cut features, all of which come from the CDJ-2000NXS2 multiplayer.
Layout and performance features from the DJM-900NXS2
The XDJ-RX2 EQs and channel faders feature curves equivalent to those on the DJM-900NXS2 mixer alongside Sound Color FX and Beat FX, also inherited from the flagship mixer.
Multi Coloured Performance Pads
Eight large, multi coloured Performance Pads on each deck for instant access to Hot Cues, Beat Jump, Beat Loop and Slip Loop, you can now set up to eight Hot Cues on each deck.
USB connection/Link Export for rekordbox
Import tracks to rekordbox on your PC/Mac to prepare them for performances by analysing BPM and setting up Hot Cues and loops. Using USB connection/Link Export mode, you can connect your laptop to the XDJ-RX2 and play your prepared tracks via the system without needing to export them to a USB device.
Includes Rekordbox DJ licence key
Every XDJ-RX2 comes bundled with a licence key for Rekordbox DJ (worth £99). Thanks to its built-in sound card, you can connect the XDJ-RX2 to your PC/Mac with a single USB cable and use it to control the latest version of the software.
Protective accessories available
The DJC-RX2-BAG is available separately at an SRP of £109. The high-quality bag features an EVA Durashock moulded body, egg-foam and a fleeced lining to prevent damage from vibrations and shocks. For even greater protection, the FLT-XDJ-RX2 is available at an SRP of €539. The lightweight, durable case is made from industrial 6 mm plywood with bonded high-pressure laminate so it’s solid on the outside, while the foam lining makes it soft on the inside. Aluminium reinforced edges, recessed butterfly catches and folding handles make it the ideal way to transport your XDJ-RX2.
