A post over on the Polish Pioneer Facebook page appears to suggest that there might be a v2 of the company’s flagship Serato DJ / Virtual DJ controller “soon”. The suggestion came in a reply by what appears to be a Pioneer employee to a question asked by a follower of the page.
Forget those splitter cables – the latest update to djay 2 for Android was released today, and it lets you use the onboard sound cards of supported DJ controllers, meaning you can finally connect your headphones and speakers straight to your controller for full stereo headphone cueing and master output.
Well, it finally happened. We thought Native Instruments might do this first, but Pioneer has finally made what a lot of us felt was an inevitable leap in DJ technology, by releasing a fully digital media player, ie that doesn’t take CDs and is designed for digital DJs solely. It’s called the XDJ-1000, and today we take a detailed look at it.
Pioneer has launched a digitally focused, USB-only media player. The XDJ-1000 features a 7″ full-colour touchscreen, full integration with the company’s rekordbox platform, plus wave zoom, beat counter, phase meter, key analysis, quantised beat-jump / loop move, the ability to load tracks over USB or WiFi, and more.
