Early this morning Pioneer DJ hit the industry with some serious news. First, the new Rekordbox 4.0 software was revealed as a fully-fledged DJ software that will work with all Pioneer current DJ controllers and players and will soon include upgrade paths for Video plug-ins and DVS plug-ins for vinyl and CD timecode users. Next, the Pioneer team announced two brand new controllers that will work with the new Rekordbox 4.0 software called the Pioneer DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RX. Both the new software and new hardware looks eerily similar to the Serato offerings. The DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RX seem to be almost mirror images of the DDJ-SZ and DDJ-SX controllers that only work with Serato. They will undoubtedly have the same or very similar features and workflows but this time everything will be in-house Pioneer. Check out the full press releases and videos below for more information on these new developments.
Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3 Controller Announcement [Video]
Pioneer has just announced the third iteration in their entry level DJ controller called the Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3. Long ago, we reviewed the original DDJ-WeGO and it was a great controller for any new DJ and it had versatility to work with different software. The DDJ-WeGO3 continues where the original left off with a new sleeker design, stronger construction, and an included iOS lightning cable that also charges the iOS device while in use.
