Is the zone 96 compatible with redkordbox dj?
Asked by: SPECIAL DAY PRODUCTIONS
According to user reports online, rekordbox unofficially supports an open hardware ecosystem, meaning that you should be able to access DVS functionality with a non-Pioneer soundcard - provided it has the correct I/O options to support this. As the Xone:96 offers 4 channels of USB I/O it should be possible to connect the Xone:96 with rekordbox. You will likely need an additional MIDI controller if you are not planning to use a DVS system. You could use a MIDI controller such as the Xone:K2 to access and map playback controls in rekordbox.
