The XDJ-AERO, the industry’s first Wi-Fi® DJ system that can wirelessly play music tracks from smart devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptop computers. The XDJ-AERO enables users to mix and arrange their favourite music tracks stored on their smart devices via Wi-Fi, as well as on USB memory devices and computers via included DJ software. As an added benefit and convenience, the XDJ-AERO can also create its own wireless access point when Wi-Fi isn’t available or not in range, further enabling quick and convenient connectivity with portable smart devices.
Pioneer created a special mobile application for various smart devices that enables wireless connection and transmission of music to the XDJ-AERO via Wi-Fi. The XDJ-AERO can identify up to four devices as sources for music playback. The system can also access audio tracks on a computer (PC) through the use of the included Pioneer rekordbox® music management software.
The rekordbox™ DJ music management app for the extremely popular Apple iPhone® and iPod® Touch. The rekordbox app enables users to prepare and manage music stored on their portable devices as well as the ability to create playlists, cue/loop point and beat location settings, waveform analysis and more. The organized music in the device can also be wirelessly synced with a computer utilizing the Pioneer rekordbox music management PC software, providing additional convenience of preparing music for playback on a Pioneer DJ system.
The XDJ-AERO DJ system takes full advantage of the rekordbox app, enabling the iPhone or iPod touch to become an additional source for music content. The XDJ-AERO also creates its own access point, eliminating the need for hard-wired connections and allowing an iPhone or iPod touch with the rekordbox app to send content wirelessly to the DJ system.
Pioneer's rekordbox DJ music management app is available now at no charge from the App Store and Google Play.
For added convenience and expandability, the system is equipped with audio ports for connecting other sources such as Pioneer CDJ players, and can even be used as a standalone 2-channel mixer. For creative music playback and unique mixing capabilities, the system offers a new built-in jog control, audio effects and more.
- Jog Drum – Launch, scratch and manipulate samples by simply turning or tapping the jog platter.
- Sample Launch – Includes four built-in sounds: Scratch, Horn, Siren and Laser.
- Beat Effect – Four additional effects including Trans, Flanger, Echo and Roll can be added to currently playing music.
- Sound Colour Filter – Each channel of the mixer includes Pioneer’s popular Sound Colour Filter which can be added to music at any time.
The XDJ-AERO also features two automatic mix functions, Beat Sync and Auto Mix. With Beat Sync, a press of the “Sync” button synchronizes the music loaded in each player on beat with matching beats per minute (BPM). In the Auto Mix mode, playlists created on a smart device using the special mobile application, computer or USB memory device are linked together with cross-fade or fade-in/fade-out effects. For added convenience, the system also lets users record their mixes directly onto a USB storage device in WAV format.
The XDJ-AERO combines two digital players and a mixer into a single slim and stylish unit, taking similar design cues from Pioneer’s highly popular professional CDJ digital players and DJM mixers. The unit also features a smoke-coloured acrylic panel, blue and white LED illumination and low-profile jog platter and control buttons.
