    Default Pioneer XDJ Aero!

    This was just released in the Netherlands, check out this new Pioneer controller!!!
    http://www.xdj-aero.com

    WiFi, USB, Rekordbox... Sounds pretty amazing to me, and a price of only 999 (for Pioneer that's a bargain).

    However those knobs look plastic and the cue/play buttons look like those on the Ergo...

    Had to share it

    I don't get who they are marketing towards with this.. Using wifi would be unreliable and €999 is crazy. If it was cheap it would be a fun unit for playing around at home with friends.

    I think this is the way of the future TBH and what better way to beta test the functions than in a non-mission-critical setting of a bedroom or studio.

    My gut feeling is the next CDJ update will NOT include cd players and this kind of interface is gonna pave the way.

    Sure it may look a small bit Toyish (so do CDJ350's and 400's), but consider for a moment - its a completely standalone device at almost the same price as some of the other pricier midi-only controllers out there (vestax/numark).

    It Features (from my understanding) a real mixer, sound card, wifi streaming, media player and the most cost effective rekordbox setup you are gonna get in an extremely compact party size package and thats just touching on the good points!.

    Only thing I really dislike is the displays though which look like they got pulled from the Gemini's rejects line.

    In saying that even if I were touring and needed something reckordbox compatible to fuck around with in my hotel room I'd snap one up.

    Dont forget you don't have to use the wi-fi function and my gut says this is some kinda bridge they are working on to make DJ swap overs seamless - no cables to start plugging in or out, just find wifi, hit button and sync your next track with ipad/phone or whatever.

    If the Machinery could handle a full track in a buffer (of higher end units), the reliability issue of wifi would be zero anyhow.

    I like how you can judge a piece of gear's quality, reliability, and feel, based entirely off of a picture. Do you have some kind of super 3D monitor that let's you touch it?

    The Ergo is one of the most solid controllers on the market, just because it has rounded edges, doesn't mean it's a "toy."
