Pioneer DJ have announced details for the all new DDJ-RZ, the latest DJ controller released from the well-known brand. This new controller has been exclusively designed to manage the new Pioneer Rekordbox DJ software and is reliable, fast and produces quality sound within any location.
Pioneer DJ have captured the need for fast, dependable software that is easily transportable with exceptional sound. Combining the DDJ-RZ DJ controller with the Rekordbox DJ software has meant that DJs no longer have to take equipment to venues but instead can prepare and play directly from the laptop or export to a USB and use the industry standard equipment that is found in the majority of venues across the globe, all from one single library.
The RZ looks very similar to the prominent DDJ-SZ with the added compatibility with the all new Rekordbox DJ software. This is reflected in the RZ controller which emulates the software layout for ease of use. The four-channel controller allows you to perform with all four of the Rekordbox DJ decks and each channel has its own level meters and trim pots for maximum control.
The features of the Pioneer DJ DDJ-RZ include:
• full-sized jog wheels
• spacious layout with large controls for perfect scratch response
• On jog display – with cue point countdown and track playback position
• digital cue point marker
• jog illumination showing which deck is in play
• jog feeling adjust
• 16 performance pads with multi-coloured cue point LEDs which DJs can instantly trigger Hot Cues, Roll, Slicer and Sampler
• Magnetic crossfader for enhanced operability
• 2 USB sound cards for smooth DJ handover
• Slip mode for precision scratching.
The Pioneer DDJ-RZ DJ Controller also comes with four inputs which enables easy connection to DJ equipment along with using it as a four-channel stand-alone mixer. The RZ also consists of two master outputs (XLR and RCA) and a booth output enabling connections direct to professional PA equipment. The two MIC inputs have been improved to eliminate any distortion. There is a Rekordbox DJ software expansion pack supplied with the purchase of the DDJ-RZ.
The DDJ-RZ is available in December 2015 at an SRP £1549 inc. VAT.
