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