Features
4-CHANNEL MIXER
This unit is an all-in-one DJ controller designed specifically for rekordbox
dj. It’s interfaces incorporating various controls such as “DISPLAY”,
“BIGJOG”, “PERFORMANCE PADS” and 4-channel mixer are positioned
with room to spare to allow for more individualistic DJ performances
using rekordbox dj.
Also, the unit provides “SOUND COLOR FX” and “OSC SAMPLER” functions so that original arrangements can be added to the music being
played back.
Furthermore, numerous input and output terminals support a variety
of DJ styles. Featuring aluminum material for the top panel, the design
makes the unit look high quality, which is appropriate in a variety of
scenes such as nightclubs, home parties, etc.
The unit includes “4-CHANNEL MIXER”, which allows the DJ to independently operate songs being played back with four decks. Four songs can
be mixed to create a highly individualistic DJ mix.
Level meters are located near the master unit and the operation interface of each channel, so that input and output levels can be understood
instantly.
This unit retains the control panel layout of the Pioneer DJM series, the
world standard in DJ mixers.
The simple, easy-to-understand control panel layout not only facilitates
DJ performances but also makes it easy for DJs using the unit for the
first time to operate it without hesitation, so it can be used without worry
as a permanently installed mixer in the club.
DISPLAY
OSC SAMPLER
A 7-inch large color LCD has been employed in each deck section and
in the mixer section. This enables more intuitive DJ performances as
not only detailed waveforms but also information on the effects and
PAD modes required for performances are displayed so that they can be
checked in an instant.
The unit is equipped with the “OSC SAMPLER” function for generating four types of sound (NOISE, SINE, SIREN, and HORN). Operation
is simple. Just press the button of the sound type you wish to output.
You can take music to an entirely new level by superimposing oscillator
sound over the music you are playing back or further emphasizing the
climax of music. Also, you can change the tone by simply turning the
[OSC SAMPLER PARAMETER] control, making it possible to generate
oscillator sound that is matched to the music. Furthermore, you can use
sample sounds saved to the OSC SAMPLER in “rekordbox dj”.
BIG JOG & ON JOG DISPLAY
The industry’s top class time has been achieved for the time required
from when the jog is operated until when the control signal is transferred
to the software. Additionally, “BIG JOG”, a large sized jog, allows the DJ
to play scratches as they wish with smooth operability.
At the center of the jog, the “ON JOG DISPLAY” displays the playback
status of music and the current playback position so that the DJ can perform scratching more accurately. Also, the unit is equipped with “JOG
FEELING ADJUST”, which is popular in the CDJ Series. It is possible to
adjust the operation load and back spin continuous time during scratch
play to match particular tastes.
SOUND COLOR FX
This unit has 6 types of effects (SPACE, DUB ECHO, CRUSH, JET,
PITCH, and FILTER). The DJ can adjust tracks to obtain the desired
sound quality and make improvisational performances simply by turning the [COLOR] controls provided for each of the channels. Adjusting
the [PRAMETER] control allows a more varied range of expression to be
achieved.
Creative effect performances are also made possible by assigning your
favorite SOUND COLOR FX included in “rekordbox dj”.
MULTI-COLOR PERFORMANCE PADS
“MULTI-COLOR PERFORMANCE PADS”, large rubber pads used to operate functions such as HOT CUE, PAD FX, and SAMPLER, are positioned
at the front of the unit.
Music can be arranged by dynamic actions such as beating and rolling
and the volume of the sampler can be increased or decreased depending on the strength of the beat.
Also, each pad has built-in multi-color illumination so you can instantaneously understand the information required for your performance from
the color and lighting state of the pad.
SAMPLER SEQUENCER
This unit is equipped with the “SEQUENCER” function to allow the DJ to
create simple phrases by recording and playing “SAMPLER” operation
patterns. Intuitive operation is possible because a dedicated operation
interface is provided.
Furthermore, a created phrase can be loaded into a deck by pressing
the [SEQUENCE LOAD] button. Loading a phrase into a deck allows
arrangements to be added to music using the various functions of the
deck such as scratching and reverse playback to create music performances with even greater originality.
PLUG AND PLAY DUAL USB PORT
Two USB sound cards are provided to connect the unit to up to two
computers at the same time.
The sound cards of the unit and all buttons and controls are set to be
linked with “rekordbox dj” beforehand so that the DJ can begin performances immediately using “rekordbox dj” without having to make
troublesome settings.
The USB selector located at the top side can be used to switch between
the two sound cards with a single action. When one DJ takes over from
another, this function provides a smooth transition between the two
computers without sound being interrupted.
FLEXIBLE CONNECTIVITY
Four external input systems and two MIC input systems are provided to
connect to a CD player or analog turntable.
Mixing is possible without going through a computer, so the unit can be
used as a single DJ mixer as well.
In addition, two MASTER OUT systems and one BOOTH OUT system are
provided to handle professional PA device output.
All kinds of party scenes and DJ playing styles are supported.

DURABLE FADER
What’s in the box
A slide structure is used for the crossfader and channel fader, in which
the fader knob is supported by two metal shafts.
This achieves smooth operability without wobble and also high
durability.
Also, effects on inside the faders caused by liquid and dust are
minimized.
An independently developed FADER is incorporated for the crossfader
to support scratch play, which provides high durability of more than
10,000,000 operations, and fine operability.

HIGH SOUND QUALITY
Leveraging the audio circuit of Pioneer DJ audio devices for clubs, the
unit provides powerful sound quality faithful to the original. It achieves
the reproduction of clear and powerful club sound faithful to the original
by adopting a high performance D/A converter (96 kHz/32-bit) and low
jitter clock circuit made by Asahi Kasei. Furthermore, this unit can also
faithfully reproduce delicate sounds as it also supports 92 kHz/24-bit.
PROFESSIONAL QUALITY DESIGN
Aluminum material on the top panel provides a sense of high quality
design.
This unit is an essential part of DJ performance in clubs and home party
scenes.
SLIP MODE
This unit is equipped with a SLIP MODE function to enable sound to
continue in the background while operations such as looping, scratching, and hot cueing are being performed. This means operations such as
looping, scratching, and hot cueing can be performed without changing
the original track’s composition.
NEEDLE SEARCH
The DJ can simply touch a waveform on the touch display (deck section)
with a finger to instantly search for the touched point. This makes for
intuitive, speedy searching with the sense of touching the music directly.
