Legendary Pioneer Control with Epic Visuals
We’ve seen almost every top-level DJ controller here at Sweetwater, and few have wowed us like Pioneer DJ’s DDJ-RZX. The DDJ-RZX was built for Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox video plus pack for rekordbox dj (both included), providing you with a fully hands-on DJ/VJ system that lets you create stunning visuals to go with your music, all while letting you stay totally focused on the mix. Set everything up in rekordbox and then perform with DDJ-RZX’s comprehensive controls – all while manipulating a full set of Sound Color FX, Beat FX, Release FX, and visual effects via three full-function 7″ touchscreens. Add to that an amazing audio interface, and we’re still just scratching the surface of what the DDJ-RZX has to offer.

Comfortable layout any digital DJ will loveIf you’re just getting into DJing, then you really can’t do much better than the Pioneer DJ DDJ-RZX, and if you’re a seasoned digital DJ, then everything about this awesome controller is going to feel totally familiar. The large aluminum jog wheels include On Jog Display, and the multicolor trigger pads cover all your cueing/sampling/looping functions. Plus there’s a Needle Drop touch strip for fast-track searching, full effects controls, and all the buttons, knobs, and faders you need for 1:1 control over Pioneer’s comprehensive rekordbox dj software. In short, it’s everything a professional DJ could ask for.
Three touch displays keep you focused on the mixOne thing that Sweetwater DJs picked up on right away is the DDJ-RZX’s awesome touchscreen controls. In an era when we all carry iPhones, iPads, and other tablets, the familiar feel of a touchscreen display on a DJ controller is a welcome sight. Well, Pioneer took it a bit further and loaded the DDJ-RZX with three 7″ touchscreens. These screens make browsing tracks, zeroing in on waveforms, managing loops and cues, and all kinds of other tasks totally intuitive. You can even pull off some mighty impressive effects work, thanks to its X-Y Touch FX mode. Simply put, with three of these amazing displays at your fingertips, there’s no reason to even open your laptop anymore, and your crowd is going to love that.
Add stunning visuals to your set with rekordbox videoPioneer DJ released the DDJ-RZX to launch their rekordbox video software, which includes all of the power of rekordbox dj, plus mind-blowing video control. If you never VJed back in the day, then let’s just say, it wasn’t easy, but with rekordbox video, you can add stunning visuals to your set, without even thinking about video most of the time, unless you feel like mixing visuals on the fly. Instead, you can use rekordbox to set up video and still images to go with your tracks, define your effects, and have the whole show ready to run before you get to the club. And with support for USB cameras, text overlays, and other advanced functions, you’ll be amazed by what you can do with rekordbox video.
Access advanced effects to highlight your showWe already mentioned the amazing effects blending and control you get with the DDJ-RZX’s Touch FX X-Y touchscreen control, but that’s just a fraction of what this controller can do. You also get awesome Sound Color FX for added flavor, Beat FX that sync to your tracks, and Release FX that let you create epic breaks and transitions. What’s more, you get a lot of the same control over your video effects, so while you’re sweeping a filter and building up a jet wash, the intensity of your visuals can automatically keep up with your music.
Killer sound quality includes external mixingIf you know Pioneer gear the way Sweetwater does, then telling you that you’re going to get the best audio performance in the industry out of the DDJ-RZX’s high-performance, low-jitter Asahi Kasei 32-bit/96kHz converters isn’t even necessary. What’s more, these premium-quality analog and digital signal paths are open to external inputs too, so you can mix in turntables and even take advantage of your onboard effects, without breaking a sweat. And if you’re sharing the spotlight with other DJs, then you’ll appreciate the DDJ-RZX’s dual USB ports, which make handoffs a piece of cake.
