Pioneer DJ has long served as the industry standard for mixing equipment in the EDM/dance music domain. After a song have been produced in a DAW many DJs and producers travel the world and play their songs on the Pioneer CDJ’s. Their line of CDJs can be found in just about any nightclub or EDM festival setting, while their DJM mixer continues to be a top choice for DJs everywhere. Pioneer has now just released two new items from their Rekordbox line.
The new Pioneer controllers are the DDJ-RB and the DDJ-RR, and they have added some incredible new features while maintaining the classic and essential components that the DDJs are known for.
From the bandpass filter to the Play/Cue buttons, the current features have become the standard in any mixer sold today. In other words, the latest members of the Pioneer family must add a level of upgraded quality that can really wow its users. A new “Sequence Load” allows DJs to add samples after linking them to corresponding beat pads on the mixer. This gives the DJ the option to utilize vocal bits and sound effects into a live mix with ease. The new “Sequence Load” feature also gives performers the freedom to scratch these audio cuts independently of the playing music so as to not interrupt the current track.
Another additional feature with the new Pioneer DDJs come in the form of a three band mic EQ. Previous models were only equipped with two bands: a lowpass and a highpass.
Both mixers will be available in late May 2016.
