Pioneer DJ is expanding its range of rekordbox dj controllers with the new DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR. Both controllers feature two channels while the DDJ-RR also includes Deck Select so you can switch between all four rekordbox dj decks at the touch of a button.
The controllers introduce buttons for new features in today’s rekordbox 4.1.1 software update, including Sequence Call, which allows users to create and save sample sequences, then play them back without touching the computer. The DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR are also the first controllers to support PC Master Out, which allows users to play master output through a computer’s internal speakers or a connected desktop speaker while using the controller for headphones at the same time. Both new controllers come bundled with rekordbox dj performance software (a $129 value).
The entry-level USB-powered DDJ-RB is all you need to get started with rekordbox dj performance software. The layout handles like a pro-DJ set-up with play/cue buttons, jog wheels and a VU level meter. You can use the Performance Pads to trigger Hot Cues, Beat Jump, Pad FX and Slicer – plus there’s a button for the new Sequence Call feature. The lightweight, flexible controller supports PC Master Out and is perfect for use on the move.
The DDJ-RR adds to these features, packing in all the traits of a pro-DJ set-up. Stay in control with large jog wheels, illuminating on-jog indicators and customizable multi-colored Performance Pads. Get creative with Slip Mode and Release FX, and hit the new Sequence Load button to load your sample sequences to the deck to scratch them. Multiple inputs and outputs give users flexible connectivity and the option to use the DDJ-RR with rekordbox dj software or as a stand-alone 2-channel mixer using multiplayers or turntables.
The DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR rekordbox dj controllers are available in the U.S. from June 2016, with retail prices of $249.00 and $699.00 respectively. Both controllers come bundled with the rekordbox dj Plus Pack (a $129.00 value).
