Pioneer DJ has released a new all-in-one controller, the XDJ-XZ.
The device, which can be used with USB drives or a rekordbox-equipped laptop, “feels exactly like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2,” according to the press release. Serato DJ Pro support will be added in early 2020.
“It is the closest thing you can get to a full two deck [Pioneer DJ] NXS2 setup at around a third of the price,” DJcityTV’s Mojaxx says.
The XDJ-XZ is available now at $2,299. Watch Mo’s first look below and stay tuned for a full review.

Serato users should wait to upgrade to macOS Catalina. (Source: Serato)
Serato has issued a warning telling users to hold off on updating to macOS Catalina. The software maker has discovered some performance issues with Serato DJ Lite and DJ Pro while testing the beta version of Apple’s upcoming operating system.
Here’s what Mojaxx has to say:
“At DJcity we always recommend that users hold off from doing major operating system updates until software developers and hardware manufacturers have given the definite all-clear for you to safely go ahead.
In the past, we’ve even seen new audio issues appear between the final beta and full releases of a new OS. So unless you absolutely HAVE to upgrade for some reason, we recommend you wait until you’re certain there won’t be problems.”
Stay tuned for more information from Serato.
