It features a sectioned layout. The top center section has its EFX capabilities, and located on each side of the middle section is its audio mixing controls for connection of up to four digital or USB sources. Across the middle section, Pioneer added new INST FX (Instant Instrument FX) functions that allow DJs to further alter and create more sound effects, the company said. Finally, the bottom center of the mixer has a large LCD touch display that provides DJs a window for remixing beats and adding effects.
Three different performance modes are available, including Frequency mix, which reportedly enables more precise mixing within seven frequency ranges; Sidechain remix, which lets DJs create seven different dynamic audio effects with touches and movements on the screen; and MIDI mode, which lets users assign various controls displayed on the LCD screen to control DJ software via MIDI. Four types of MIDI modes are available for more performance flexibility.
Other features include Evolved Beat Effects, effect frequency knobs, INST FX with six additional audio effects, Pro DJ Link, and a Live Sampler capability that allows the sound from a microphone or from the master output to be recorded directly into the mixer. The “sampled” sound can instantly be transferred via LAN cable to a CDJ-2000/900 for scratching, Pioneer said.
The art of DJing is now in the digital age, and the next generation of DJ mixers needs to keep pace with the CDJ revolution. Our DJM-2000 truly does that.
The brand new DJM-2000 is our most powerful performance mixer and is the perfect match for the new industry-standard CDJ-2000 digital decks.
With an innovative touch screen and arsenal of remixing FX, the DJM-2000 forms the ultimate club mixer. No less than six individual effects processors lay the foundation for hundreds of music manipulation combinations, so a DJ can always create their own unique sound.
The new DJM-2000 takes advanced features – thought only possible in software – and reinvents them in the physical world. Its intuitive layout will feel natural to existing Pioneer DJM users allowing creativity to flow whilst keeping its technical complexity under the skin.
