It is no secret that Pioneer is the industry standard when it comes to mixers and players. It is also widely known that they produce some of the best all-in-one DJ controllers. While there are still others producing quality gear such as Numark, Denon, and even Native Instruments, Pioneer has a deep back catalog like no other.
With today’s news, it seems it’s about to get deeper. Pioneer has taken to the web to share with us the newest addition to its highly acclaimed XDJ line, the XDJ-RR. While technically still a DJ Controller, it is not classed with the DDJ Line of products. Instead it is an XDJ, being classified by the company as an “All-in-One DJ system for rekordbox”.
The XDJ-RR is the third in line of the XDJ products, following Pioneers flagship all-in-one XDJ-RX2. The newly announced RR model is almost identical to the RX2, with only a few key differences. One of these is it’s $1,099 price tag, which is $600 less than the $1,699 that the X2 goes for.
The new XDJ-RR will feature three beat FX, to include Echo, Reverb, and a Flanger. It will also include four Sound Color FX, which are a Filter, Noise, Dub Echo, and Pitch. It will include color waveforms, which will make visual beatmatching easier. It will also be smaller and lighter than previous models. A couple of drawbacks for the device are that it will not feature a touchscreen, will only feature four performance pads, and will not include a booth out.
Overall, while still pricey at a whopping $1,099, it is ideal to help an aspiring DJ go from the “BEDROOM TO MAIN ROOM”. It will definitely help in the process of transitioning to a full-blown CDJ setup and will save you nearly six grand in the process. Time to start saving. Check out a photo of the new RR below.
