    Default Moving from Traktor to Pioneer XDJ-RX

    I am seriously considering moving to the new-ish Pioneer XDJ-RX setup, and am interested in hearing from anyone who has done this already, or who uses both.

    Main reasons are...

    - No Laptop Needed
    - Plug & Play (stick USB full of mp3s in and off you go)
    - Work like the standalone CDJs found in most clubs
    - My Traktor S4 crashes sometimes

    i know Rekordbox is part of the eco-system, but theoretically i could just plug in USB and get on with it. However i will no doubt embrace Rekordbox and see what its all about.

    What's your experience with Pioneer kit, and how does it stand up against Traktor?

    I've moved from Traktor to Rekordbox (very longtime Traktor user) I haven't gone down the "All in one" route, instead i went for the DDJ-RR with my existing MacBook Air.
    So far, everything has been very positive. The software seems pretty solid & the build quality / features of the controller seem way ahead of N.I's kit.

    I switched from VCI 400 to rekordbox ddj rz. I miss the expanded waveform in the traktor player (the zoom) and I miss being able to twist a knob to move my loop without ever getting out of sync or out of phrase. I also miss jog effects.
