The ergonomic design features 8 multi-color and velocity sensitive performance pads on each deck with four modes of operation including Hot Cue, Pad FX, Slicer, and Sampler. The large aluminum jog wheels can be Dual Deck enabled at the push of a button, allowing two tracks to be controlled, scratched and hot-cued simultaneously. Additionally, The RZ includes the OSC Sampler, which generates noise, sine, siren, and horn sounds, as well as user samples from within rekordbox.

The mixer is capable of connecting mics, turntables, CD players and other external audio sources. Each channel features trim, FX, 3-band EQ/rotary kills, a two-way filter, and level fader. The RZ ships with an AC power adapter and a USB cable.
