XDJ-RX2 lack of compatibility

Hi all,

I’ve bought myself a Pioneer XDJ-RX2 and a license for djay Pro 2 but I have to say the compatibility is a huge disappointment.

According to the Algoriddim website the XDJ-RX2 is natively supported but once connected only half of the controller possibilities are available.
Not only does there nothing happen on the Pioneer LCD-screen (no track id, no waveform, bpm,… just nothing) but even the VU-meters seem to work with a latency. You have to play with the channel gain a little bit to get the VU meter going.

All the built-in effects on the controller (delay, echo, spiral, reverb, roll,…) are not working. When you press the effect button you only hear a “flanger-like” effect.

Same situation for the built-in color effects. The only effect you get from this knob is a “filter-like” effect.

Hot cues, beat loops, slip loops and beat jumps work properly.
The Spotify integration is perfect. Thank you for that!

When you have a high-end controller like the XDJ-RX2 with pro features you suspect the same from the software. I really hope Algoriddim steps up their game with a new update for the XDJ-RX2.

All the best!

Hi WillyG,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The LED displays and the Effect unit on each channel is being treated internally by Pioneer and are not “onboard” of the controller.

Therefore, we are unable to support them. We are sorry for that.

The displays work with Virtual DJ and the RX2
