The Safety of Your Ears is in Your Hands
Get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a
safe level – a level that lets the sound come through
clearly without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time, your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound, so
what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting
your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing
adapts.
ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
• Once you have established a comfortable sound
level, set the dial and leave it there.
BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING
GUIDELINES:
• Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t
hear what’s around you.
• Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized
vehicle; the use of headphones may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.

Features
What’s in the box
This unit is a standard type DJ mixer for professional DJs that carries over the technology of the Pioneer DJM series, the world standard in club sound. Not only is it
equipped with a wide variety of functions for DJ performances, including PRO DJ
LINK, SOUND COLOR FX and BEAT EFFECT, it also uses a high sound quality design
and a panel layout with high operability to provide strong support for performances
to all professional DJs active in the club scene.

Operating instructions (this document)
SOUND CARD
This unit is equipped with “sound card/USB audio interface”.
! Up to 4 sets of audio signals from a single computer can be assigned to the different channels and mixed.
! DVS (Digital Vinyl System) software time code signals played from a DJ player
or analog player can be output to the user’s DVS software. This enables DJ play
using DVS software without all the complicated connections.
! Up to 4 sets of audio signals from the different channels (channels 1 to 4, REC
OUT, crossfader sides A and B and microphone) can be output to the computer.
This is very convenient for recording the mixed sound.
HIGH SOUND QUALITY
Efforts have been made for improved sound quality in the digital/analog inputs/
outputs. Sound processing with 96 kHz sampling, a 24-bit high sound quality A/
D converter and a 32-bit high sound quality D/A converter result in more powerful,
high grade sound.
96 kHz 24-bit USB audio is supported.
SOUND COLOR FX
This unit is equipped with 6 types of effects. Effects can be obtained simply by turning the [COLOR] controls provided for each of the channels, letting DJs adjust the
sound quality of the tracks input to the different channels and make improvisational
performances.
BEAT EFFECT
The BEAT EFFECT function well-received on the DJM series is carried over and
further evolved.
This unit has been newly equipped with an [X-PAD] for achieving various effects
by touch operation, allowing you to achieve intuitive live performances with great
freedom.
CHANNEL FADER
A newly developed high reliability fader is used for the channel fader.
Compared to channel faders on previous models in the DJM series, this new fader
offers improved endurance with respect to deterioration due to dust, liquids, etc.,
getting on the fader. Smooth operation is maintained even under tough usage
conditions.
PRO DJ LINK
The PRO DJ LINK functions can be used when a Pioneer DJ player supporting PRO
DJ LINK (CDJ-2000, CDJ-900 etc.), a computer on which rekordbox is installed and
this unit are connected by LAN cable.
For details on PRO DJ LINK, see About PRO DJ LINK on page 15.
STANDARD LAYOUT
This unit carries over the control panel layout of the Pioneer DJM series, the world
standard in DJ mixers.
The simple, straightforward control panel layout not only facilitates DJ performances
but lets even DJs using this unit for the first time to operate it without hesitation, so
it can be used without worry as a mixer that is permanently installed in the club.

MIDI timing clock. This can be used to synchronize an external MIDI sequencer with
the tempo of the source.
! For the messages output by this unit, see List of MIDI Messages on page 21.
! External MIDI sequencers not supporting MIDI timing clocks cannot be
synchronized.
! External MIDI sequencers cannot be synchronized for sources for which the
BPM cannot be measured stably.
! The MIDI timing clock is output even with BPM values input manually by tapping
the [TAP] button with a finger. The MIDI timing clock output range is 40 BPM to
250 BPM.

When turning one button on switches another button from on to off, MIDI on and off messages are sent from the two buttons.
When there is no button that switches off, only the MIDI on message is sent from the button that was pressed.
When switched from one position to another position, the MIDI ON and OFF signals are sent respectively from both positions.
When the [START/STOP] button is pressed for over 1 second, MIDI messages corresponding to the positions of the buttons, faders and controls are sent in a bundle (Snapshot).
The MIDI Snapshot sends all MIDI messages other than MIDI start and MIDI stop.
