Pioneer Introduces First DJ Controllers for Rekordbox

Pioneer DJ have launched two new DJ controllers: the new DDJ-RX, native rekordbox dj performance controller, and the DDJ-RZ, plug and play rekordbox dj professional controller.  

Pioneer DJ is launching the DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RX – the first hardware to deliver native control of rekordbox dj performance software, announced today. The controllers give rekordbox DJs the ultimate flexibility and convenience: to prepare their tracks in rekordbox and then enjoy plug-and-play performance with the software, direct from their laptop.

The DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RX mirror the layout of the software precisely to enable intuitive creative performances. New to these controllers are the beat parameter buttons, Sampler Cue mode and Sequencer mode, which lets DJs record, play and loop pad routines on the fly.
