To curate a new VR DJ experience featuring Pioneer DJ, Tribe XR announced a collaboration with AlphaTheta. The experience will enable the users to learn how to DJ a gig using hardware that the pros use. The VR title will feature some of Pioneer’s best gear customized to resemble the actual experience closely.
Equipment used by professional DJs worldwide, such as the CDJ 3000, have been incorporated into the experience that can be accessed in Tribe XR right now.
Tribe XR is available on the Oculus Quest platform, and PC VR, including Oculus Rift and other compatible headsets through SteamVR, at a price tag of €24.99 / $29.99 / £22.99. It also offers an optional membership called the Tribe Plus subscription for an additional monthly charge of €4.99 / $4.99 / £3.49, that brings access to extra content such as 4 CDJ-3000 decks instead of the standard 2, equipment skins with innovative designs, live video workshops with resident DJ mentors, and 3D on-demand lessons.
The platform also allows the DJs to create private rooms and interact with their friends at virtual house parties, taking turns playing the soundtracks.
Mark Grotefeld from the AlphaTheta Corporation said, “Pioneer DJ has long been the market-leading hardware and software brand in the DJ industry. Today, we’re delighted to announce our first step into virtual reality via this partnership with Tribe XR. We’re thrilled to be working with Tribe XR to harness VR technology to enable the next generation of DJs to take their first steps in learning the art of mixing, as well as enabling home DJs and professionals to practice, play, and perform on authentic versions of Pioneer DJ products in a virtual environment.”
Tribe XR CEO and co-founder Tom Impallomeni stated, “Tribe XR is the leading VR DJ school and performance platform globally. Our goal is to turn aspiring DJs into performing DJs. We are delighted that our community can now learn and perform with the CDJ-3000 and DJM-900NXS2, in virtual reality, no matter where they are. We hope this will inspire home DJs around the world to become professionals and global stars.”
