Pioneer DJ Releases New All-In One System, XDJ-XZ


Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 |

Pioneer DJ has released its new all-in-on DJ system for rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro, the XDJ-XZ.

The latest in the XDJ line of hardware, the XDJ-XZ builds on previous editions of the line, but adds some important features. The XZ combines two full sized decks and a four-channel mixer into one compact controller, adding Nexus2 features.

Users can connect via USB drives on channels 1 and 2, connect your laptop to use rekordbox dj or Link Export mode. With two extra channels, you can mix in audio from external sources like turntables, while Pro DJ Link enables you to browse tracks from CDJs via the 7-inch touch screen on the XDJ-XZ and sync them with your mix. Soon you will be able to perform with Serato Pro when the software is compatible through a firmware update sometime in early 2020.

Three USB ports make transition between DJs or for b2b sets, even b2b2b sets. 14 professional Beat FX and 6 Sound Color FX are taken straight from the DJM-900NXS2 mixer, and trigger software-specific features using the 16 multicolored Performance Pads (8 per deck). The performance pads can take your mixing to the next level, adding another layer to your performance.

To summarize, the XDJ-XZ comes with the following features:

– Advanced features and user experience from NXS2 setup for pro performances

– Support for various media and different performance styles

– High-quality sound and multiple EQs

– Pro DJ Link seamlessly syncs external equipment for expanded creative options

– Touch screen and color On Jog Display

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.


Carl Cox

DJ/Intec Records

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.


Daniel Glass

Glassnote Records

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”


Kaskade

DJ/Producer

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal Records

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.
