Announcing Pioneer DJM-450; a 2-Channel DJ Battle Mixer

Announcing Pioneer DJM-450; a 2-Channel DJ Battle Mixer. Pioneer DJ has released a new 2-channel mixer (inheriting the features and design of the DJM-900NXS2). This mixer has a Magvel fader, smooth EQ and channel fader curves. DJM-450 has Sound Colour FX and Beat FX with parameter control which opens up new creative possibilities. It also has a whopping 64-bit digital signal processor.

Furthermore, the DJM-450 comes with license keys for rekordbox DJ and rekordbox DVS. So you can also DJ with tracks stored on your PC/Mac when using turntables and control vinyl.


Professional Layout

Mixing on the DJM-450 feels instinctive thanks to the layout design, which inherits traits from the DJM-900NXS2 professional mixer.

Smoother Mixing

The EQ lets you balance the high, mid and low frequencies on every channel. Choose you preferred EQ level or use the isolator to totally eliminate each EQ band for the perfect mix.

Robust Faders

The robust Magvel Faders ensure smooth control over long-term use. Two metal shafts supports the faders knobs, while the contact-free magnetic system is designed to endure millions of performances.

Professional FX

You can also engage 8 different types of Beat FX – Delay, Echo, Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Flanger, Pitch and Roll – in sync with the BPM. Or trigger 4 studio-quality Sound Colour FX – Dub Echo, Sweep, Noise and Filter – and use the parameter knob to add more creativity to your mixes.

RekordBox DJ Bundled

You get a free RekordBox DJ license key bundled with this mixer. Simply activate your license key for your DJ software, connect to your computer via USB and start deejaying.

RekordBox DVS Bundled

You also get a free license key for RekordBox DVS included in the box for low-latency scratching with CDJs and XDJs. Or play and scratch with tracks from your RekordBox library using analogue turntables and the Control Vinyl.

High Quality Sound

Whether you are playing from digital or analogue sound sources, a warm, high-quality sound is created by the 64-bit digital signal processor using dithering technology.

Independent Send/Return

Use built-in FX and external FX from mobile apps at the same time. Simply connect your smartphone or tablet via USB to engage instrument and FX apps.

Flexible Connectivity

The XLR terminal and gold-plated RCAs deliver premium sound quality on all connections. The GND terminal easily attaches ground wires from analogue turntables.

Independent Mic Section

Use a microphone and the AUX input at the same time.
