Welcome to our review & walkthrough of the Pioneer XDJ-RR stand-alone multimedia player. The XDJ-RR is Pioneer DJ's latest 2-channel player with a layout which is very similar to the big 2000NXS2 Setup. It's going to make it easier to transfer your skills over to the professional gear setups.
Could this be one of the most popular stand-alone players for beginner DJs?
We provide lessons on the XDJ-RR as well, look for more on our course page!
The XDJ-RR is the little brother of the Pioneer XDJ-RX2, which has been a breakthrough due to it's price and the abillity to play with a stand-alone set and Rekordbox from an early stage. In fact, both the RX2 and the RR offer the exact essentials that DJ's use on the expensive CDJ-2000-setup.
That is why we recommend young DJ's on a budget to start off with such a Pioneer player. It prepairs you for the more professional gear in the future. Even on small parties or at various non club occasions it is really handy to bring your own portable gear.
Ofcourse, investing money in more expensive stand-alone gear is always an option. But when you just start out DJ'ing, many just don't know yet, if they will actually go on to become more professional.
Also, we advice to spend more time in building a proper music collection, rather than spinning records all the time. The musical aspect is much more important than learning the skills, in the beginning.
So as you work with Rekordbox software with the XDJ-RR, you can go downloading and start organising your music right away! You can make CUE-points in your tracks and set markers, in order to know your intro's before you spin them! This is what we advise to do befor you hit ANY button!
We get all our gear at Tonecontrol.nl and we have a discount for our students at this store. See THIS PAGE for more on the XDJ-RR at Tonecontrol!
