I finally got my RZX!
I am in love with it, except for a few points.... here are my final thoughts about it:
First, it is HUUUGE. Pictures and videos show a big thing, but when you see it in front of your face for the first time you say... oh man, this is huuuge.
All 3 screen quality are very good. The mixer screen waveforms are a little bit laggy. I must say I expected them to be fine in a 3k controller but it is something Pioneer would be able to fix with an update.
It is very resource hungry. I do use it with a macbook air, i7, 2.2, 8gb and the fans kick right after you plug it up.
It is laggy when you press certain buttons fast... ie: you press PAD FX to change the pad behaviour and it takes a couple of seconds until it finally changes and you can use it. While it is changing, if you press AUTO LOOP, the loop wont start until the pads change....
That is something I would like to see fixed in a future firmware/software update.
Good point is, altought the UI freezed a couple of seconds while that happens, the audio in the background keep playing beautifully, no cracks/pops/dropouts of any kind.
Pioneer did a good job in buffering the user actions and keeping it separate from the audio. that way, the audio keep running smooth on the background.
One really bad point on this controller are the platters.
They are cheap. They look nice, but when you touch them and move them you feel it is cheap plastic. they even not spin well, I mean, the SZ platter were heavier and well "centered" the ones on the RZX feels like not properly centered.
That is the worst point about this controller. If you own a SX/SZ/RX/RZ, you know the quality of your platters, and you laugh on cheaper controllers because of their cheap plastic platters... well, the RZX is in the cheap plastic platters controllers group.
Audio quality is excellent. Haven't tried mic input yet, but should be awesome too!
That's what I think. I love the controller and I am happy with it.
I expect it to improve with some updates in the future.
Thank you, and I hope someone from pioneer reads this.
