The DDJ-RB: Pioneer's Most Affordable Rekordbox DJ Controller

With the DDJ-RB DJ controller, Pioneer has offered a highly portable entry-level DJ controller at a very attractive price. Offering dual decks, onboard effects, and a 16 pad sampler, the DDJ-RB is everything a beginning DJ needs to start spinning beats and turning heads. It's designed to work perfectly with Pioneer's included Rekordbox DJ software -- just add your laptop and a pair of headphones!

DJ Like a Pro

Why spend your money on a more expensive DJ controller that has bells and whistles you probably won't even use? The DDJ-RB has virtually all the functionality you need to DJ like a pro. It's got two decks with robust yet lightweight aluminum jog wheels, enough to crossfade one track into the other, or mashup tracks by playing two simultaneously. There's onboard EQ, filters, and effects with which to remix and add your own creative touch. There's a looper, for quickly laying down background beats. And it's got a complete 16-sample, four-bank sequencing sampler section for triggering hot cues, samples, loops, slices, and sample sequences.

Bundled DJ Software

The DDJ-RB includes Pioneer's own rekordbox dj software which is the perfect package for newcomers to laptop DJing. It offers an intuitive interface that mimics the layout of the DDJ-RB itself, so the learning curve won't be too steep, ever for novices. Similar in format to other industry-favorite DJ software like Traktor Pro and Serato DJ, rekordbox dj is also a great introduction for those wishing to get into other DJ software further down the road. This software retails for $129, but Pioneer bundles it for free with the DDJ-RB -- making this DJ controller one righteous deal.

Features:

- Two-channel portable USB DJ controller for rekordbox dj software
- Per channel control knobs for trim, 3-band EQ, and filter plus effect controls and volume faders
- Two lightweight and durable 128-mm aluminum jog wheels
- Four sample banks with 16 sample slots each

Pioneer DDJ-RB DJ Controller

The entry-level Pioneer DDJ-RB is inspired by the professional controllers for rekordbox dj, the DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RX. This USB-powered, 2-channel controller is all you need to get started with the rekordbox dj performance software.

Perfected for use on the move, the DDJ-RB is a compact, lightweight controller packed with advanced features. It has an intuitive layout, responsive jog wheels and tactile Performance Pads that let you trigger Hot Cues, Pad FX, Slicer and Sampler. Plus a button to call up sample sequences directly from the hardware.

rekordbox dj

You get a free rekordbox dj license key bundled with this controller. Simply activate your licence key, connect the controller and start DJing.

Intuitive layout

Mix instinctively with the jog wheels, play/cue buttons, mixer knobs and faders, gain pots, VU meter and dedicated loop buttons built to mirror the rekordbox dj layout.

Performance Pads with Sequence Call

Create sample sequences then select and play them directly on the hardware using the Sequence Call button. Plus trigger Hot Cues, Pad FX, Beat Jump and Slicer with 16 Performance Pads.

PC Master Out

For flexibility you can choose to hear your mix through your computer's internal speakers, connected desktop speakers, or play through a wireless speaker. At the same time, you can use your headphones to cue independently of the master out.

"Great controller and great purchasing option"
Overall: I've been looking to get into DJing for a while, and did a lot of research about what kind of controller to buy. Ultimately I chose the DDJ RB because it comes with the full version of rekordbox, which is a great deal. Since money was tight at the time I wasn't sure how to afford my new hobby, but then I found zZounds and their 4-payment w/no credit check plan. I was able to purchase the controller right away and I've made the third payment this month and it's been a very easy and pleasant experience, and I look forward to making future purchases from zZounds. The controller itself has been great to use. The jog wheels are a nice size and not too small like on other entry level controllers. It is light and made of plastic but feels pretty durable. All the buttons, knobs, and jog wheels are very responsive. The only thing that's strange is the pitch faders are short, which takes some getting used to. I really enjoy the rekordbox software and was happy to not have to pay for it separately. If you're not sure whether to get the RB or the SB2, the RB is more bang for your buck, since with the SB2 you'd have to buy Serato separately. The SB2 does have a few more features on board but I was willing to sacrifice those for now since I'm a beginner.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "Play as you pay! Brilliant. Most musicians don't have a lot of extra cash on hand. I am disabled and on a low fixed income. If it wasn't for zZounds there is NO way I would have the gear I have today. Plus you carry the best and most PRO level gear around. Most other stores only carry gear for the beginner and people that play for a hobby. That's fine but what about the pros? zZounds does it all very well." - Customer on November 25, 2018

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
