PIONEER WI-FI EQUIPPED XDJ-AERO DJ CONTROLLER GETS A MAKEOVER –
NOW AVAILABLE IN EYE-CATCHING PEARL WHITE VERSION
Pioneer DJ today announced a new pearl white version of its popular XDJ-AERO, a Wi-Fi® enabled DJ controller that let users conveniently send music from their smart devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptop computers1 to the controller using Pioneer’s rekordbox™ app.
The new pearl white XDJ-AERO-W offers another stylish option to the current black color version and will be available in March with a suggested retail price of $1,399.
Pioneer’s XDJ-AERO-W features:
• Wi-Fi Connectivity – Pioneer created a rekordbox mobile application for iPhone and other smart devices that enables wireless connection and transmission of music to the XDJ-AERO via Wi-Fi. The system can also access audio tracks on a computer (PC) through the use of the included rekordbox music management DJ software. The XDJ-AERO can identify up to four devices as sources for music playback.
o Wireless Direct – As an added benefit and convenience, the XDJ-AERO can also create its own wireless access point when an established Wi-Fi signal isn’t available or not in range. This feature, called Wireless Direct, offers users quick and convenient connectivity with their portable smart devices.
• Mixer Options and Functions– The combined structure of the system, including two players and a mixer, enables DJs to use the system as an independent 2-channel mixer. The system is also equipped with ports for the connection of external sources, such as CDJ players and turntables, so it can be used as a standalone 2-channel mixer. The XDJ-AERO also features two automatic mixing functions:
o Beat Sync2 – Pressing the “Sync” button synchronizes the music loaded in each player on beat with matching beats per minute (BPM)
o Auto Mix – Playlists created with rekordbox stored in smartphones, tablets, PCs or USB keys and connected to the device are linked together with cross-fade2 or fade-in/fade-out effects
• Simple Jog Controls – The system offers users new built-in jog control and audio effects for unique mixing capabilities and creative music playback.
o Jog Drum – Launch, scratch and manipulate samples by simply turning or tapping the jog platter
o Sample Launch – Includes four built-in sound effects: Scratch, Horn, Siren and Laser, which can be stored on a USB memory device and compiled with rekordbox when using the jog controls
