'ddj sx2(serato) VS ddj rx(Rekorbox)'
I'm going to buy this week my first controller, And I'm very confused
What to buy because of the supporting software I did a lot of homework online
And I'm more attracted to Pioneer's rekordbox, But it's always good to hear another opinion before i buy so I would be happy to have a professional opinion
"Attraction" should have little to do with it. What is important is what kind of DJ you intend to be, what kind of genres you are likely to play, do you want to scratch, or remix live or be a mobile open format DJ. And more questions like that. As you are starting you will not "know" many of these things but you will have ideas and intentions.
While Rekordbox is as good a choice in software (or almost 😀 as it is still developing more than others to catch up) as any other software, there are two things to keep in mind:
- Both units come with a full version of DJ software, the SX2 with Serato DJ, the RX with RekordBox.
- The SX2 is supported by most other software in native mode (VDJ, Mixvibes Cross, DJay Pro, etx.) and will actually work fine with RekordBox as well. The other way around the RX will play nicely with RekordBox, but no guarantees it will work equally well (if at all) with other software.
My personal advice, if you are not 100% sure that RekordBox is and will remain your software of choice (which is hard as a starting DJ due to lack of actual experience), I'd go with a controller that gives me more flexibility to change software without having to change hardware. Again, you have to make that decision yourself.
Hope the info helps you a bit in your decision-making process.
