Pioneer has launched XDJ-AERO, the industry's first Wi-Fi enabled all-in-one DJ system and native rekordbox player.
Retailing at £869, the XDJ-AERO allows DJs to load music wirelessly from smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs, instantly taking the hassle out of a set up. It also functions as a standalone mixer and can be used as a MIDI and HID controller.
The system creates its own private Wi-Fi network, enabling users to connect up to four wireless devices at once. Members of the DJ's audience can even send tracks from their own smartphones or tablets.
As the first native player for Pioneer's rekordbox music management software, the device lets DJs create and edit playlists on the fly, view beat grids, analyse BPM and load wave forms during sets.
Users can switch between the XDJ-AERO’s mobile and USB inputs at the touch of a button and, at just 45mm thick, the portable, lightweight system is the world’s thinnest combined player and mixer.
