LAB REVIEW

In a crowded DJ controller market, Pioneer has delivered a unique solution that incorporates several modes of DJing. Firstly, the XDJ-R1 design mimics the traditional CDJ + mixer setup and also functions like one (it accepts CDs). Secondly, the XDJ-R1 works as a standalone controller (no computer needed to function). The addition of the iOS wireless capability and the new Remotebox app, expands the controllers functionality making it easier to find songs or control complex effects. Thirdly, the XDJ-R1 can act as MIDI controller for your preferred DJ program (just hook up your computer via USB). Lastly, the XDJ-R1 can function as a standalone 2 channel mixer (connect turntables, mic or other sources).

With all these features, you might think the XDJ-R1 might be an oversized, clunky piece of hardware. However, Pioneer has perfected the design to be both simplified and portable (it only weighs 15 lbs. and is roughly the size of comparable controllers on the market). Traditionalists will like the CDJ integration, while controller DJs will like the expanded features and touch-sensitive screen the iOS app offers (some features are exclusive to the app). In addition, Pioneer has drawn its best features (filters / effects, sampler, hot cues, etc.) from its high-end components and integrated them into the XDJ-R1. Recommended.
