IN SHORT

 

Pioneer DJ has launched the DDJ-XP2, an add-on DJ controller for Serato DJ Pro and Rekordbox DJ.

The DDJ-XP2 is the successor of the original DDJ-XP1 and is not only compatible with Rekordbox DJ, but also with Serato DJ Pro!

This means that you can now use the DDJ-XP2 as an additional controller in any Rekordbox DJ or Serato DJ Pro controller setup to unlock additional features and no less than 16 pads per channel.

The DDJ-XP2 supports Transport Mode, which was already available in Serato DJ Pro and is now available in Rekordbox DJ. Transport Mode allows you to assign transport controls (cue/pause, play…) to the performance pads. This is perfect for bare-bones DVS setups that provide limited transport controls.

The DDJ-XP2 also supports Silent Cue, which means you can instantly mute a track and bring it back in without touching the faders.

Finally, a Rekordbox license and Rekordbox DVS license are included in the package.

It’s great to see Pioneer DJ giving equal love to Serato DJ Pro and their own Rekordbox DJ, showing their partnership with Serato is stronger than ever.

Key Features

SEAMLESS COMPATIBILITY WITH REKORDBOX DJ AND SERATO DJ PRO

Feel at home using the DDJ-XP2 with rekordbox dj or Serato DJ Pro. You’ll be able to easily trigger popular features such as Hot Cues, Beat Jump and Slicer, bringing more creativity to your performances no matter which DJ performance application you choose.

HIGHLY RESPONSIVE, ROBUST AND PORTABLE DESIGN

Put all your energy into your performances and the DDJ-XP2 will handle everything you throw at it. Built to withstand energetic finger drumming on the 32 tactile multicolored Performance Pads, the robust construction and non-slip rubber surround ensure that the DJ controller stays in place and keeps performing. You can also use the upper section to control key and beat sync status, and to select tracks.

SLIDE FX

Dynamically control your chosen pad effect in rekordbox dj, or a combination of effects in Serato DJ Pro, by touching the Slide FX strips and moving your finger up and down.

SERATO DJ PRO’S FIRST-EVER 16-PAD MODES

The DDJ-XP2 introduces Serato DJ Pro’s first ever pad modes that support 16 pads per deck. These modes assign eight pads each to two different features, e.g. Hot Cue mode and Sampler mode, so you can trigger Hot Cues and samples at the same time, without switching modes. The other new modes expand the creative possibilities of powerful features such as Pitch Play, which you can now use to trigger cue points in twice as many semitones as before (Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Pack required – available separately).

New modes

PAD MODE 1: Hot Cue mode and Sampler mode
PAD MODE 2: Auto Loop mode
PAD MODE 3: Slicer mode and Sampler mode
PAD MODE 4: Saved Loop mode and Manual Loop mode
PAD MODE 5: Pitch Play mode
PAD MODE 6: Roll mode
PAD MODE 7: Slicer Loop mode and Sampler mode
PAD MODE 8: Transport mode and Beatgrid Edit mode
SUPPORT FOR NEW TRANSPORT MODE IN REKORDBOX DJ
The Transport mode in Serato DJ Pro, also now accessible in rekordbox dj, enables you to use the pads on the DDJ-XP2 as transport controls for your music. Play, pause, cue, pitch up/down tracks, and more.

SUPPORT FOR NEW SILENT CUE IN SERATO DJ PRO

If you’re using rekordbox dvs (license key included) or Serato DJ Pro, switch on Silent Cue and the deck will be muted. This means you can silently cue up tracks with the faders open on the mixer and drop them into your mix instantly by hitting a Hot Cue – there’s no need to touch the faders. And, if you’re using rekordbox dvs or Serato DVS (Expansion Pack available separately) with turntables, switch on Silent Cue and the music will restart instantly when you press Hot Cue on a muted deck. This avoids the sound of the music speeding up as the turntable starts to spin. Simply choose a Hot Cue, then hit play on the deck and it will sound the same as hitting a Cue on a DJ player.

  • Loop section from the DJM-S9 – feel at home when using the looping controls
  • Bus power via USB – no need to plug into an outlet
