PIONEER DJ LAUNCH NEW CONTROLLER FOR REKORDBOX DJ AND SERATO DJ

Pioneer DJ have launched a new pad-based controller for use with both rekordbox DJ and Serato DJ. Featuring 32 backlit coloured LED pads, the DDJ-XP2 can control everything from cue points to sample triggering and loops, as well as FX using the Slide FX strip that activates as soon as it's touched.

Transport options can also be assigned to the pads so you can play, stop and cue directly from the unit. There's also a new option where you can instantly mute a deck and reload from a hot cue, right from the pads. Find out more in the video below. The new unit will cost £299. 

Level up with the DDJ-XP2 add-on DJ controller for rekordbox dj and Serato DJ Pro. No matter which DJ application you’re used to, this DJ hardware will enable you to get more out of it than ever before. This DDJ-XP1 evolution adds to the functionality of the original, without sacrificing the intuitive layout and solid build quality. Its sturdy construction and non-slip rubber surround mean you can hit it as hard as you want during performances.

The DDJ-XP2 enhances your setup with 32 robust, multicolored Performance Pads, and puts powerful pad modes at your fingertips. Assign transport controls like play, pause, cue, and pitch up/down to the pads with Transport mode. Use 16 pads to control a single mode (a first for Serato DJ Pro). Trigger Silent Cue to soundlessly cue up tracks with the faders open on the mixer. Then instantly trigger them from Hot Cue points. And feel confident and in control during DJ performances thanks to the looping controls of our DJM-S9 flagship scratch mixer.
