DJM-400 Offers Perfect Match for Pioneer’s CDJ Turntables

ANAHEIM (January 19, 2006) – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today introduced a new two-channel mixer with the world’s first in-loop sampler and provided demonstrations at the NAMM show at the Anaheim Convention Center. The new mixer matches Pioneer’s CDJ-200 CD turntable in both function and design, allowing DJs to expand the range of DJing and remixing. Its new symmetrical design is the same size as a CDJ-200 enabling an easy fit in a compact DJ coffin.

World’s First In-Loop Sampler

An intelligent 96kHz/24bit sampler automatically detects the tempo of a song during playback, sampling it for a length of 4 beats; then loops the sample. Since the sampled sound is in sync with the beat of the tune being played, no matter the tempo, it enables live remixing like never before. Samples are automatically stretched and compressed to match the beat. The DJM-400 will store five samples onboard.

“The combination of the new DJM-400 with the CDJ-200 is a great combination for pro DJs looking for a great entry-level system,” said Karl Detken, director of product planning for Pro DJ products at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “It offers the reliability, a wide range of features, and the high quality audio for which Pioneer products are known.”

Onboard Effects and Equalization

Onboard effects automatically detect the beats per minute of the music and sync to the beats. The DJM-400 includes seven onboard effects: Delay, Echo, Filter, Flanger, Phaser, Robot and Roll. All effects are processed at 24bits for the highest quality sound. A new Beat Select button allows more intuitive and aggressive DJ playing and remixing.

Each channel has a 3-band isolator EQ with full cut capability. The EQ ranges from +9dB to -∞ (infinity) for total control of the sound.

The DJM-400 offers a number of key features for a professional DJ, including:

- The ability to select either of two microphone connections or one stereo line connection;

- A fader start so playback can be started by simply sliding the cross fader or channel fader when connected to a Pioneer CDJ product;

- A peak level meter so the DJ can check audio input levels for each channel or for the master;

- A Talk Over feature that automatically lowers track volume for the DJ to speak over the track.

Mein persönlicher Geschmack ist es nicht. Scheint erstens völlig überteuert zu sein und wirkt zweitens absolut überladen. Auch die Optis sehen eher rutschig aus. Und Effekte haben mMn nix am Mixer verloren. Dafür gibt es externes Euqipment, dass seinen Zweck 1000x besser erfüllt. Aber wers braucht...

Dieser Mixer ist praktisch der Nachfolger des DJM 300. Er wurde technisch auf den neuesten Stand gebracht und das Design wurde ein bisschen überarbeitet!

Hat auch eine kleine Speicherfunktion für Samples sowie der 600er! Pioneer empfehlt den gebracuh des Mixers zusammen mit den neuen 200er CD Playern!




PREIS DJM 400: 699 €

Denke der Mixer ist ganz in Ordnung, nur der Preis :traurig:, aber das ist bei den Pioneer Produkten ja meistens so!

Qualität und Markenprodukte haben eben Ihren Preis!
