We’re expanding our range of rekordbox dj controllers with the DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR. Both feature two channels while the DDJ-RR includes Deck Select so you can switch between all four rekordbox dj decks at the touch of a button. The controllers introduce buttons for new features in today’s rekordbox 4.1.1 software update, including Sequence Call, which lets you create and save sample sequences then play them back without touching your computer. The DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR are also the first controllers to support PC Master Out, for playing master output through your computer’s internal speakers or a connected desktop speaker while using the controller for your headphones at the same time. Both new controllers come bundled with rekordbox dj performance software worth €139.
The entry-level USB-powered DDJ-RB is all you need to get started with rekordbox dj performance software. The layout handles like a pro-DJ set-up with play/cue buttons, jog wheels and a VU level meter. You can use the Performance Pads to trigger Hot Cues, Beat Jump, Pad FX and Slicer, plus there’s a button for the new Sequence Call feature. The lightweight, flexible controller supports PC Master Out and is perfect for use on the move – fitting snugly into the new DJC-B/WEGO3+BAG protective carry bag, available separately.
The DDJ-RR adds to these features, packing in all the traits of a pro-DJ set-up. Stay in control with large jog wheels, illuminating on-jog indicators and customisable multicoloured Performance Pads. Get creative with Slip Mode and Release FX, and hit the new Sequence Load button to load your sample sequences to the deck to scratch them. Multiple inputs and outputs give you flexible connectivity and the option to use the DDJ-RR with rekordbox dj software or as a stand-alone 2-channel mixer using multiplayers or turntables.
The DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR are available from late May at SRPs of €249 and €699 respectively, including VAT. Both controllers come bundled with the rekordbox dj Plus Pack (worth €139, including VAT).
