Pioneer DJ has announced a new controller, the DDJ-800. Designed to be used with the company’s rekordbox DJ software, the DDJ-800 takes cues from the popular DDJ-1000. However, the DDJ-800 is smaller and more affordable.
The device offers two channels, switchable between four virtual decks, with a wide selection of Sound Color and Beat FX.
Its five-inch jog wheels feature full-color screens in the center, providing real-time display of waveforms, BPM, time, and more. They also have tension adjustments, enabling DJs to personalize the resistance.
Several pad modes are found on the DDJ-800, including hot cues, keyboard mode, beat loop and jump, Pad FX, and pitch shift. It’s also the first rekordbox DJ controller to support the software’s new Feedback Reducer feature, which is designed to instantly detect and remove the howling sound of feedback when using the unit’s two microphone inputs.
The DDJ-800 will be available worldwide in mid-April for $899. Get more details here, and stay tuned for Mojaxx’s first look this week.
Pioneer DJ has announced the XDJ-RR, its latest all-in-one DJ system for rekordbox.
The device is intended to help DJs “make the transition from playing at home to performing at parties, bars and eventually clubs.” As such, it inherits a number of features from the company’s professional NXS2 range.
Like the XDJ-RX2, which was recently reviewed on DJcityTV, the XDJ-RR can be used standalone with USB drives or with a laptop that’s equipped with the rekordbox dj software.
Its features include:
– Dual USB ports for playback and mix recording
– Seven-inch color screen
– Performance controls including hot cue, beat loop, slip loop, and beat jump
– Three beat FX: echo, reverb, and flanger
– Four sound color FX: filter, noise, dub echo, and pitch
– Comes with rekordbox DJ software
The XDJ-RR will be available in early September at a suggested price of $1,099. Find out more on Pioneer DJ’s website and watch the promo video below.
Pioneer DJ announced the DDJ-1000 on Tuesday, the latest controller for their rekordbox DJ software.
A four-channel device, the DDJ-1000 features CDJ size jog wheels which contain full color central displays. They can be customized to display various types of information, including BPM, waveforms, and cue points.
The controller’s mixer section includes a lot of familiar effects from the DJM mixer range, as well as some new effects like Enigma Jet, Mobius Saw, Mobius Triangle, and Low Cut Echo.
The DDJ-1000 also features two USB ports for DJ switching, 16 performance pads, and a license for the rekordbox DJ performance software.
It will be available mid-January at a price of $1,199. Check out Pioneer DJ’s website for more information and watch the introduction video below, which features Red Bull 3Style world finalist, Deejay Irie.
