I'll definitely check the R1 out when it's released.
The Ipad/Iphone app seems great.
By utilizing the "remotebox" app with an iOS device such as iPhone or iPad, the XDJ-R1 can be remotely controlled wirelessly, giving DJs the ability to continue their music mixing performances even when they move away from the system. The remotebox app provides access to many of the system’s functions directly on the display of a compatible smart device including controlling volume levels, choosing and changing songs, as well as the ability to mix songs from a USB device plugged into the system. Users can also apply the “Auto Beat Loop” function3 that automatically loops music at a specified tempo as well as intuitively control various effects using the X-Y pads from a smart device.
Unlike conventional systems, the XDJ-R1 is equipped with dual CD players in addition to a USB port for media playback. The system supports a variety of different music formats including conventional compact discs and MP3, AAC4, WAV and AIFF files stored on CD-R/RW and USB storage devices. For added convenience, the unit also offers MIDI support for operation of various DJ software.
Mix and Match Features
The XDJ-R1 offers a multitude of fun and convenient features for creating unique mixes including:
•Beat Sync5 – With a touch of the Sync button, the system automatically synchronizes the beats of songs analyzed through Pioneer’s rekordbox music management software
•Hot Cue – The unit features three points of Hot Cues to enable playback of music from specified points
•Sampler – For added effects, the system’s Sampler function enables recorded sampling sounds to be added with the press of a button. Sound sources can be recorded from songs on a USB storage device or a compact disc
•Beat FX – Four different effects including Trans, Flanger, Echo and Roll are available to combine with songs currently playing
•Sound Color FX – The unit offers four additional effects (Filter, Crush, Noise and Jet) for more creative mixing options
•Quantize Function – Automatically corrects synchronization of effects when using Auto Beat Loop or Beat Effect.
•Noise Reduction – To significantly reduce noise, internal analog and digital circuits were separated, and the distance for digital conversion of analog input signals was shortened. All signal processing is conducted using a high-performance CPU for clear audio output
•Independent 3-band isolator
•Internal sound card (Audio Interface)
•Complete with Master Out (XLR), Booth Out, AUX and MIC ports
