Pioneer have announced the XDJ-RX2, which is an upgrade of the popular XDJ-RX.
The 2-deck, 2-channel all-in-one system delivers a professional DJ experience whether you connect it to rekordbox dj via your laptop or music stored on a USB device and also combines with features and traits from the flagship NXS2 series.
The 7-inch large 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 for finding 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 4 Channel DJ mixer. It also has 2 USB slots, the second allows you to record the mix straight to a USB.
The XDJ-RX2 will be available from September 2017 at an SRP of €1699 including VAT.
