PIONEER IS IN THE MIX WITH LATEST DJM MIXER
Revolutionary DJM-2000 Features 5.8-inch Multi-Touch Screen, Advanced EFX and MIDI Control

LONG BEACH, CA (March 10, 2010) – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division, is again front and center of the DJ scene as a technology leader with the introduction of the DJM-2000 professional mixer providing new generation digital DJs the ability to creatively produce outstanding performances at an entirely new level. A perfect companion to Pioneer’s CDJ-2000 digital media players and compatible with any player in the market, the DJM-2000 is marked to be the pinnacle of mixers with technological advances that include the industry’s first 5.8-inch multi-touch1 screen effects, Evolved Beat Effects, Pro DJ Link and MIDI controls.

“At the heart of DJing is the mixer and it’s absolutely essential to have the best product in your arsenal when you’re entertaining hundreds and even thousands of club goers. I’m confident that the DJM-2000 will be marked as the ‘go to’ audio mixer in the industry,” said Matt Dever, vice president of professional sound and visual division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.

Performance Driven
For those DJs looking for a serious mixer that can greatly enhance their performance capabilities, Pioneer’s DJM-2000 will deliver incredible audio features and audio effects.

Mixer Layout
The DJM-2000 inherits a larger foot print than its predecessors to accommodate a sectioned layout of features as well as cosmetically match the latest Pioneer CDJ series of digital media players. On the top center section of the mixer resides its EFX capabilities to give DJs a bounty of digital effects. 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 which allow DJs to further alter and create more sound effects. And, at the bottom center of the mixer is a large LCD touch display that provides DJs a window for remixing beats and adding effects with the ease of a simple touch of the screen.

Industry First Multi-Touch Panel
A first in the industry for audio mixers(*1), the DJM-2000 incorporates a full-color 5.8-inch LCD multi-touch panel for adding audio effects. Users can simultaneously manipulate the displayed controls on the panel by touching different areas of the screen. Three different performance modes are available including;

Frequency mix - Enables more precise mixing within seven frequency ranges. For example, users can enhance the bass region within the music they’re mixing.
Sidechain remix – DJs can create seven different dynamic audio effects with touches and movements on the screen.
MIDI mode – Allows the user to 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.

Evolved Beat Effects
A section of the mixer resides an Evolved Beat Effects adopted from earlier versions of the DJM series of mixers to generate a multitude of sound effects. Numerous buttons were added for selecting multiple effects and beat parameters for additional performance capabilities. Further manipulation of the sound effects can be made using the Effect Frequency knobs that changes the low, mid and high frequency bands of the music. Turns of the knobs enhances the effects to each frequency band, i.e., an echo added specifically to the vocals of the music or a doubling of the hi-hat rhythm, providing incredible performance options.

Instant Instrument FX
The INST FX (Instant Instrument FX) provides six additional audio effects that include Noise, HPF, LPF, Jet, Zip and Crush. Each of the effects can be induced into the channel with a turn of the Filter knob. Additionally, the Parameter knob allows the effects to be fine tuned.

Live Sampler
A cool feature of the mixer is its Live Sampler capability which allows the sound from a microphone or from the MASTER(*2) 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.

Pro DJ Link
When used specifically with Pioneer’s CDJ-2000 or CDJ-900 turntables via Pro DJ Link, the DJM-2000 becomes an even more powerful musical tool. The mixer incorporates four Ethernet ports in the back of the unit allowing up to four of the most recent CDJ turntables to be connected (via LAN cables) while sharing only one music-filled SD card(*3) or USB storage device. In addition, up to two laptop computers pre-installed with Pioneer’s music management software rekordbox™ can be interfaced with the DJM-2000 via LAN cables, in cases that two DJs are transitioning for their individual performances.

Link Monitor
When linked with the CDJ-2000 player, the mixer informs the DJ of its connected status. The JOG rings of the turntable changes in color based on the current on-air(*4) status or channel number connection, providing quick visual indications to the DJ

USB interface
The DJM-2000 features a USB audio interface(*5) that allows direct computer connection without the need for an external sound card. Up to four audio sources can be assigned to each channel providing even more flexibility. For additional convenience, the MASTER output can be connected directly to a computer for recording(*6) of performances.

Sound Quality
Continuing the prestigious reputation of Pioneer mixers, the DJM-2000 provides excellent sound quality. By utilizing balanced hybrid op-amp and a perfectly balanced output circuit in the analog processing stage, Pioneer managed to significantly decrease induced noise resulting in a dynamic range of 107dB with 0.004% THD for an extremely clean and powerful sound.

Additional features of the DJM-2000 includes:
• Switching 3-Band EQ/Isolator - Equipped with a switching 3-band EQ (+6dB to -26dB) and 3-band Isolator (+6dB to -?dB) on each channel
• Digital In - Permits audio signal of each channel with no deterioration in sound quality
• Fader Start Play - Connection with CDJ player(s) with PRO DJ LINK or control cable allows the mixer to start the turntable by switching faders
• Talk Over - Lowers the volume of the music when a connected microphone is used
• Peak Level Meter – Displays input levels at a glance
• Cross fader Assign function - Allows the flexible assignment of the input on each channel to the cross fader
• Fader Curve Adjust function - Allows changes to cross fader and channel fader curves

^ , ^^

I don't understand the two of you... are you two not disgraced software DJs now? You don't even use this stuff anymore...

Dion went software when he left Lebanon for Dubai.
And Crow, is there not a topic about you going fully-software in the Music Room?


Faking jizzers.... not cool.

About a week ago Pioneer released another video that really shows some of the incredible functions of the new mixer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3B1RBvoNwE

Downloaded the video & played it like 5 times... it's LOVE!

Some things are close to impossible to do with only 2 hands, hence the "4-hands" at one point in the video.

Also they released their new rekordbox software for free so everyone can use it (much better than iTunes!)

Just fill out the survey and they'll send you a Product Key- all for free!!!

it's Crazy!!!
this is definitely the shit!
It's a bit too much for Trance music though, but for Music with less "melodies" and more percussions (ie House), it's definitely the tool to kill repetition and show ur skills!

you have deck your DJ booth in the colours of Pioneer, the option of connecting up to four CDJ-2000s/900s and two laptops presents itself via their ProDJ LINK technology. In this case, a single computer with their rekordbox program installed can act as the digital crate for an entire set-up, operating over a LAN cable.
