|AlphaTheta Corporation announces the release of the DDJ-FLX6-GT 4-channel DJ controller for multiple DJ applications from its Pioneer DJ brand – an updated version that will replace the popular DDJ-FLX6.
The fresh design of the DDJ-FLX6-GT introduces a new look and feel for its full-size jog wheels, which feature a graphite color plus a metallic texture on top and a rubberized coating on the outer ring for improved playability. The rest of the unit also boasts a sophisticated look, with a brand-new matte gray color across its body. Another major update to the DJ controller is its compatibility with an expanded range of software. The new unit adds support for VirtualDJ (license available separately), while retaining free compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro. The VirtualDJ software will also be available to use with the original DDJ-FLX6 (black/white models) by updating the unit to the latest firmware version, and TRAKTOR PRO 3 will be available to use with either model by downloading the mapping files (TSI file).
The DDJ-FLX6-GT includes all the features of the original unit including Merge FX, which makes it easy to hype up the audience and mix songs from totally different genres. You can effortlessly change from hip-hop to house, from rock to EDM, or between any other styles you want to play. And, with the Jog Cutter and Sample Scratch^ features, you can easily spice up your sets with pro-sounding scratch effects.
To use the DDJ-FLX6-GT with rekordbox, install the latest version of the software. To use the unit with Serato DJ Pro, install the latest version of the software and use the bundled vouchers for the FX Pack and Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Pack to unlock those functions. To use the DDJ-FLX6-GT with VirtualDJ and TRAKTOR PRO 3, you’ll need to buy a license key or subscription for the latest version of the software.
