A new firmware update to Pioneer’s XDJ-Aero controller brings the ability to wirelessly control some of the standalone DJ setup’s features using the iOS or Android Rekordbox application. XDJ-Aero users have always been able to load tracks remotely off of their smartphone or tablet via a wireless connection, but the new update means that basic transport and effects are unlocked, including:
- Cue / Play / Pause controls
- Loops (1/32 to 32 counts)
- FX unit for both decks with XY pads: controls timing/depth of the effect + filter
Watch the new wireless control in action in Pioneer’s video:
It would stand to reason that Pioneer may follow this up with a similar feature on other units with wireless Rekordbox integration, like the Aero’s CDJ-enhanced sister unit, the XDJ-R1 standalone DJ console. No word yet on what latency is like on this wireless control – although the video does claim that the app has an “instant” response.
