As much as i like my RX which is a great step up from the grim reaper CDJ 850’s lol, i still think they could of added the ability to install rekordbox on to it, along with a touchscreen keyboard and the ability to install apps such as spotify etc:
I do think it’s a great idea the whole rekordbox thing, but it can be time consuming burning to USB, but with rekordbox installed on the unit, it would save valuable time.
The thing I would like the most is a scaled down version of rekordbox DJ installed on to it with a pioneer’s equivalent of DJay & Spotify integration and the ability to download tracks directly on to the unit like you would do a phone or a computer…
I really do believe that in this day and age all the professional DJ gear need to do this sort of thing…
CDJ’s are 2001 technology, there like they Windows XP of the DJ world… lol
That is why Pioneer need to up their game, the Iphone 6 has a similar screen size to the Pioneer CDJ 2000 NXS, so there’s nothing really stopping pioneer creating their own operating system for these players and taking them to the next level or do it when they release the XDJ 2000…
For the money they charge for a full nexus set up which to me doesn’t go far enough in terms of features, they could add something along the lines of scaled down version of rekordbox DJ on each of their players, slightly larger screens, and their own operating system where you can install music apps, or even create their own spotify where DJ’s who dont like to use either cd’s or usb can DJ on the fly for a small fee a month…
I would go for the RX, I recently traded in my old 850’s for it and haven’t looked back… Best piece of kit brought out in recent years…
I was thinking maybe it could be used as background music for when the clients are having dinner etc:
And test again…
I was wondering that as well… Will give that a go…
A good set up for that you’re looking to do would be the RCF ART 710’a along with the RCF SUB 702, I have the 710’s and they give really good sound quality and can do weddings for say up to 100 people tops on there own, but adding the Sub 702 will make them more versitile and you’d then be able to do partys/weddings for 150/200 people…February 21, 2016 at 10:10 pm in reply to: Copying Rekordbox Data From One USB Stick To Another #2358771
Will give that a go, when I transfered them onto USB the last time I did it on my old Apple Mac which was only USB 2, but my new computer is USB 3, will the transfer rate be slightly quicker…
I would go mobile if I were you, once I realized club djing and everything but goes with it wasnt for me, i went mobile and havent looked back. When you said “The resident DJs won’t even talk to me: “I’m busy DJing” A lot around my way are just like that, trust me there not worth bothering with. Also with mobile DJ’ing you dont really need any form of social media bar maybe you’re facebook page as you can advertise on craigslist or create you’re own website.
Tell me about it, the djs around my area that do it as the ones that claim they cant afford to buy music, and dont earn enough from gigs/dont get enough gigs and stuff like that. I currently use the XDJ RX and buy my music from ebay e.g clubland cds, and cd packs from music from different eras, put the music through rekordbox before i export to USB… What baffles me with these djs are that they rely on an internet connection for their gigs when it could go down any time…
A few Djs around my way DJ in public using a controller with an Ipad with spotify tethered to a mobile phone.
Think am gonna go for the Sub 702 as have had heard good reviews on it when it comes to providing the low end, and the SPL matches my tops, the weight is the deal killer for me as it only weighs 17 and a half kilos… How much low end do 12 inch subs provide, what I’m looking for is to just add a little bit more low end to what I already have… The Specs on the RCF Sub 702 are…
Frequency Response -3 dB: 40 Hz ÷ 120 Hz
Max SPL: 129 dB
Woofer: 12″, 2.5″ v.c.
Input connectors: Stereo XLR
Output connectors: Stereo XLR
Input sensitivity: -2 dBu / + 4 dBu
Crossover frequencies: 80-110 Hz Hz
Protections: thermal, rms
Limiter: soft limiter
Controls: Volume, EQ, phase, xover
I currently use the Pioneer S-DJ50X which is similar to the KRK RP5 G3 and highly recommend them, they go for around 87 pounds each on the thomman.de website..
