(Editor’s Note: Pioneer DJ has officially unveiled the XDJ-RX2, check it out.)
Pioneer DJ has just teased its upcoming XDJ-RX2 all-in-one controller: the screenshot above comes from the DDJ-XP1 promo video, which itself was just released a few minutes ago.
The XDJ-RX2 looks like it will be the follow-up to the original XDJ-RX, and from the image above, it looks like it will have a two-channel mixer, new onboard effects (is that Dub Echo we see?), eight performance pads per deck, and a slightly redesigned layout – the USB jacks now sit on the upper right of the unit, for instance. There are also more buttons on the top of the XDJ-RX2 screen – no news yet whether or not it will be touch-sensitive.
We speculated on the XDJ-RX2 a few months back: we guessed that it would have the bump in performance pads, but our four-channel mixer dreams do not seem to have materialise (XDJ-RZ, anyone?) We’re hoping that the XDJ-RX2 will have a touchscreen onboard, which will make browsing so much easier, assuming that it’ll have a software Qwerty keyboard like the XDJ-1000 media player. We’ll just have to sit tight for Pioneer DJ’s official announcement…
