Pioneer’s New CDJ 2000 & 900

cdj-2000Sure is pretty, isnt it?As the talk has been, and the market has demanded, Pioneer recently released their first piece of hardware attuned with the steady proliferation of digital DJing software such as Serato, Traktor and Ableton.  This is quite a significant gear release, considering Pioneer has been making the club standard of mixers for a decade, and CDJs for near that.

And so they introduce the CDJ-2000 & CDJ-900…

The CDJ-2000 offers full DVS integration and a variety of other features new to the CDJ line, including (as provided by the Pioneer website)

  • Multi Format Playback – The CDJ-2000 enables playback of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF audio files on CD,DVD-ROM, SD card and USB memory devices.
  • Pro DJ Link – New Pioneer Pro DJ Link that enables up to four CDJ-2000/900s to be connected and share a single music source.
  • 6.1” Full Color LCD panel and Graphic User Interface – For displaying song titles, jacket art as well as detailed track information and wave form display of each song so DJs can find information needed to select a song at a glance.
  • Needle Search – Helps DJs instantaneously get to a specific part of a song with a simple touch of the Needle Search pad.
  • MIDI – Users can assign various buttons of the CDJ-2000 to trigger other devices, such as DJ effecters and software with MIDI mapping capability.

absolutely love the new cdj2000s. Dj’s on them many time but haven’t yet bought any as can’t really justify the £1450 price with my current charges, per event. Maybe in the future when the price comes down a little.
