On the very last day of the 2012 Atlantic City DJ Expo, my good friends at Pioneer DJ Division hooked me up with an exclusive rundown video of the newly announced Pioneer XDJ-AERO.
This new Digital DJ controller has the capability to playback audio files from USB drives, it can function as a MIDI controller for all popular DJ software, as well as allowing smartphones and tablets to deliver audio files over a WIFI wireless network via the Rekordbox software. The new XDJ-AERO is a SOLID controller and has an even better build quality than the DDJ lineup. The jog wheels feel solid and they don't have that same push-top style design that the other controllers have. This time they are touch sensitive. The crossfader was really crisp and was a joy to scratch with right out of the box. The XDJ-AERO can also function as a standalone mixer as there are RCA inputs around the back for loads of other possibilities. We'll be sure to get one in the lab for an HD-Video review within the next 30 days or so. Stay Tuned!
