Topic: Pioneer XDJ-RX Compatibility
bagpussPRO InfinityMember since 2003

As this device is now supported, I'm considering it as an option due to the built in media player.

I have two questions regarding the way the controller works with VDJ,

1. Is the mixer/FX in hardware mode or midi mode when used to control VDJ?
2. Is it possible to switch between sources (USB to VDJ) seamlessly? For example, mixing from laptop (deck A) to USB (deck B).

Thanks

1) You can use both Software and Hardware Mixer modes. However the predefined mapper assumes you're using it as a Software/MIDI mixer.

2) Yes. However keep in mind that due to the fact that the unit has only one screen, mixing between PC and USB is not something that you would want to do regularly (an entire gig as an example).

Thanks, and I understand the waveforms now work with VDJ?

The Track Progress / Overview waveforms work ok. The big SCRATCH waveforms don't work since unit doesn't support this function in controller mode.

Finally, is it fair to say the XDJ-RX2 will not be supported until they release an RX3?

We can't give an ETA but XDJ-RX2 will be supported soon.

Holy cow, do you know if it will also work with the mixer in hardware mode? And if the scratch waves will show?

Hardware mode is optional (and can be used with XDJ-RX as well)
As for the big scratch waves, yes, the official mapper will have them working as well

Looks like a decent piece of kit. Only 2 channel though and the price is way higher than the MCX8000.

I've never needed more than 2, 2 tracks at once is confusing enough for most people.

I only use two decks as well, just saying the price is very high for a 2 deck controller.

It ticks quite a few boxes though, it's more portable than the MCX8000 and still has the back-up option of standalone. It also has hardware FX and a touchscreen.

Pioneer consider it a bargin because they're almost competing with their own range, if you break it down to the modular equivalent you would pay a fair bit more.

its a sweet controller, ive seen nothing but problems from the denon mc8000. Even using serato i see its been buggy.
