Pioneer are world-leaders when it comes to the creation of expert DJ equipment. Their unquestionable ability to design and build for the professional is also applied to their range for less-experienced DJ's who want a taste of the sublime. Enter the Pioneer DDJ-400 Portable 2 Channel Rekordbox DJ Controller. With professional features and an affordable price tag, DJ's of all levels can simply plug in and get mixing right away with any relatively modern PC or Mac.
The Pioneer DDJ-400 has a layout style not too dissimilar from the top of the line NXS 2 - including two large aluminium jog wheels each 111.6mm in diameter at either side of the unit. In addition, you have play and cue controls, a generous 60mm smooth action fader for excellent tempo control and backlit performance pads. Dead centre, you will find mixer knobs and faders, gain pots and a light-up VU meter for accurate signal measurements.
BACKLIT PERFORMANCE PADS
To add your bespoke signature to any mix, you need to drop in personally selected samples and phrases, the Pioneer DDJ-400 excels here also thanks to the inclusion of 16 performer pads situated underneath each jog wheel. These can be used to trigger anything you need from samples and sequences to real-time Pad FX, beat jump and slicer.
CLASS COMPLIANT SOUND CARD
The Pioneer DDJ-400 hosts a powerful soundcard that can be connected straight to your speakers or amplifier via USB. This same USB port can also connect the DDJ-400 to any Mac or PC to be used live with Rekordbox DJ. As the DDJ-400 is class-compliant, you can wave goodbye to having to install any additional drivers.
Other connectivity options of the Pioneer DDJ-400 include a 1/4 inch jack input for a microphone, RCA (phono) outputs for your master signal and a headphone socket (3.5mm) for personal monitoring. The Pioneer DDJ-400 Portable 2 Channel DJ Controller is exceptionally powerful and is ideal for DJ's of all ages and skill levels, all it needs is you!
