Pioneer offers first ever wireless DJ console

Pioneer has surprised the music world once again having become the first company to offer a wireless DJ console. The so-called XDJ-AERO is also the first product of this kind to allow a Wi-Fi connection with mobile and stationary devices.

As with all digital devices software is key and the Pioneer XDJ-AERO is not an exception. The DJ console is based on the “rekordbox” software while connectivity is provided by an application that will become available on App Store and Google Play at the end of August. Having said connectivity the new DJ console can directly connect to up to 4 devices such as smartphones, tablets and stationary PCs. Being wireless means no wires either and if you tend to travel a lot the XDJ-AERO also provides you with the option to work on your songs using a tablet.

The latest Pioneer DJ console can also work as a standalone mixer if you wish thanks to two separate channels and an equalizer that has all the functions you can imagine. Not surprisingly the console also supports Beat functions such as Trans, Flanger, Roll and Echo. There’s also very strict volume control that allows the DJ to seamlessly switch from one song to another without awkward pauses. Perfect synchronization can be achieved with the SYNC button and there’s of course auto loop too.

Finally the Pioneer XDJ-AERO works with Traktor, Virtual DJ and Serato DJ Intro, which means there’s support for MIDI and HID.

As with everything there’s a downside too – the device does not support CDs and sometimes depending on circumstances the Wi-Fi connection isn’t reliable. Price can also be a problem for some people – in Europe the Pioneer XDJ-AERO will cost around 1000 EUR.
