Pioneer DJ has introduced the XDJ-RX3 DJ set controller, which comes with a new 10.1-inch touchscreen, more effects from the DJM-900 NXS2, brand new release FX, and an optimized operating layout along with improved sound. And just in time for the Christmas business. So clear your account and make space under the Christmas tree?
The Pioneer DJ XDJ RX3 is a DJ controller and standalone workstation in a personal union. Namely, the DJ console can work with tracks from rekordbox USB storage devices. On the other hand, the DJ can use his laptop and hang up with the RB performance mode via USB-HID control. In addition, the newcomer in the Pioneer cosmos should be compatible with Serato DJ Pro, the latter, however, only from 2021.
Many readers should already be familiar with the predecessor XDJ-RX2 Pioneer DJ mixer and its features and flexibility. Let’s take a look at the updates. It starts right away with the new 10.1-inch touch screen which was equipped with a redesigned user interface including a browser from the CDJ-3000.
This not only allows you to search through playlists and the library, track and waveform display, but also to control effects via the X-Pad or to display the status of the Performance Pads modes. The screen has a higher frame rate and resolution than its predecessor (1280: 800 (WXGA)). The number of tracks displayed in the browser increases from 8 to 12.
The waveforms now come with three-band frequency coloring and preview for sections such as intro, chorus, and bridge. The possibility of touch preview (i.e. a preview function) has also been integrated as well as a new playlist bank for access to the 4 most important playlists.
Pioneer DJ equipment packages also donate a countdown timer, for example for midnight on New Year’s Eve or DJ handover times. Useful for sound checks or when you have to get away from the deck for a moment: the repeat mode for tracks or playlists.
With the Pioneer XDJ-RX3, all 14 FX of the DJM-900 NXS2 are now on board, including ping pong, filter, phaser, slip roll, vinyl brake, and helix.
There are also 6 Color-FX now with Space and Crush. On top of that, 4 favorite effects can be saved in the also brand new Beat FX Bank. As already mentioned, the X-Pad was integrated directly into the touchscreen. As if that weren’t enough, new release FX is also arriving. Great for changing tracks or whatever comes to mind. A total of 8 effect types are available: Vinyl Brake (short/long), Backspin (short/long), Echo Out, Build Up, Mute and Ducking.
There have been some adjustments to the club players, for example concerning the lighting of the play/cue buttons and the color-on-jog display. The jog wheels can now be adjusted in terms of resistance and offer a visual overview of the track information, cover art, and the like via an integrated display.

Something has also happened under the hood because there is a new audio circuit with the result that unwanted noise is a thing of the past and the sound is clear and natural, according to Pioneer.
