Pioneer DDJ-RB Drivers and Firmware Download
What are the system requirements are concerned, the manufacturer has a minimum stated machine with a Core 2 Duo processor at two gigahertz, four gigabytes of memory and a resolution of 1280 × 768, while the recommendation to have a processor from the Core series (i7, i5, i3), more memory and higher resolution. Operating systems are supported by Windows 7 or later, and Mac OS 10.9 or later, updated to the latest versions.
With the hardware you get the key to activate RekordboxDJ software, while the software itself must be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. After installing drivers and software, in order to access the mix, we first had to register on the Quo site. We did not do it normally through a program on one of the computers, because for some reason we reported that we did not have a connection to the Internet, and we had to do offline activation (even for trial, yes). After that, we successfully launched the program and tried the functions. When using for the first time, you need to pay attention, because when starting, the program enters the CD player registry mode, regardless of the fact that we selected the DJ controller mode in the initial "wizard", and the mix mode for the mix should be selected when the program starts. After that, the program automatically recognizes the controller and moves "kissing".
As far as the trial is concerned, it works great, but we also have a few complaints. There is no total kill in the EQ section of the mixer (by Hi, Mid and Low), but only on Trim by channel and master. When selecting songs, it always returns to the beginning of the list at Knob rotation , which may change in settings, but it is not clear why this would be useful to anyone, even as an option. Pitch (although short, hardware) has a super response and is accurate, but most importantly, it has a click on zero. Jog controls are exactly in the Pioneer style - they are large and not "light", which makes them very comfortable to control the software. Crossfaderis somewhat of a lower quality than sliding and circular level controllers per channel. Filter per channel, located just below the EQ section is also a big plus. Navigating through folders is easy, and there's no need to touch the laptop when searching and downloading songs.
This controller is both priced and quality designed for people who are just entering the world of digital DJs. Of course, the overall quality and our impression in the use of its application are not limited to beginners, but on the contrary, we see this controller as a good tool for anyone who wants a decent controller at a decent price, with which he will be able to comfortably run his "gig" in bar or club, while not having a bad quality that can be experienced with certain devices from the same price range. If you decide to buy this device, it is recommended that the songs be first recorded in Rekordbox, and then they are released, because in this way you have all the essential elements pre-set and ready to rumble.
