Exciting news from Pioneer this morning as they launch their brand new flagship set-up in CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2.
They have jam packed the new units with a heap of features with the CDJ they have added a 96 kHz/24-bit sound card and added FLAC/Apple Lossless Audio (ALAC) support – paving the way for more producers to create music in this top quality format.
The player now has two banks of four Hot Cues – eight in total. And, if that isn’t enough, you can connect the DDJ-SP1 controller to add even more Hot Cues and loops and control four players from one device using Pro DJ Link. For us we are loving the look of the brand new qwerty keyboard for finding tracks a lot faster from all your playlists. We love the fact you can filter tracks to pick tracks that work harmonically or with a small % of the beat of the current track playing.
With the DJM-900NXS2 mixer it takes mixing to another level by increasing the processor of the mixer to a 64-bit which will give a more natural, warm and detailed sound.
There is 4 brand new events including HELIX which is a cool pitch effect, the good oldfashioned break which they had on the RMX1000 is a really nice addition to the mixer. The fact there is a now a warning for those numpties that drive the red lines too much when they are mixing, which we all know distorts the sound and should never happen, the mixer will now flash at that specific idiot till they hopefully reduce it out.
The controls are even more responsive, with a new gain structure, improved EQ and fader curves. The Sound Color FX section now has a parameter knob for even more nuanced manipulation.
The inclusion of 2 USBs allows you to plug in such items as your iPad, and layer it on top of the on-board FX, with the new RMX-1000 app, it means you can always carry around the unit and plug it in the mixer. Check out the video below for more information!
