Yet another DJ tool from Pioneer Electronics is now available. The new XDJ-AERO ($1,399) is the first Wi-Fi DJ system that can wirelessly play music tracks from smartphones, tablets and laptop computers. Here we go, get ready for a bunch of new wanna-be DJs to hop on this system which has two automatic mix functions, Beat Sync and Auto Mix which will pretty much do the mixing for you. The XDJ-AERO allows you to mix and arrange tracks stored your device via Wi-Fi, and also from USB memory sticks and computers via Pioneer's included DJ software. This machine can even create its own wireless access point to connect to your portable devices, and it can identify up to four devices as sources for music playback. Pioneer's rekordbox music management software is also included to access audio tracks on a computer.
