These days, the Pioneer brand, especially when we’re talking about their beautifully made CDJ’s are as popular as Technics were back in the day. But they aren’t allowing themselves to get all comfy with their prominant position in the DJ booth, releasing a slew of new gear over the years. Recently, they have unleashed two new offerings that have people taking notice.

First, they surprised many with the new XDJ-AERO, a controller without wires; a first of its kind. Well, now they’ve gone and dropped on us a FREE mobile version of their Rekordbox software with an app for both the iOS (download now by clicking image to the right) and Android ecosystems.

You can set cue and loop points, create playlists, all on the fly! All you have to do once you arrive at the party is connect and proceed to rock it! Soon, you’ll be able to control the XDJ-AERO and possibly other Pioneer devices, via WiFi, which Pioneer just might be adding to more gear soon.

Much like Pioneer’s rekordbox PC software, the rekordbox App makes it fun and easy to prepare songs for DJ playback. The app utilizes graphics similar to the waveforms, bars and buttons found on Pioneer players so users can simply touch the screen of the device being used to create and customize set points in their music. The new app also features music file browsing with the ability to customize browsing and sorting menus; log and play tracking for saving playlists on the device; and the ability to change the language of the display from among nine languages.
