Pioneer has just announced a new monster DJ Deck due to be released in September 2016 and expected to retail at about $1,199.00. This monster deck is a USB-only multiplayer (no CDs) and it has features that are similar to features of the Pioneer XDJ 1000 and both decks inherited features from the CDJ-2000NXS2. This monster deck supports high quality FLAC and ALAC files with a 7-inch full-colour high-resolution touched screen and full Qwerty touch-screen keyboard.
The XDJ-1000MK2 has enhanced track browsing functionality and track filters (this filters tracks by key and BPM). What more you can add on a DDJ SP1 controller (sold separately) to access all 8 cue points via the large performance pads. This monster deck has features that will raise the bar on what a digital DJ deck should be.
Equipped with the same size jog wheel and a 7-inch LCD touch screen as our CDJ-2000NXS2, you get intuitive control over your mix.
Next to MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF, the XDJ-1000MK2 supports high-quality FLAC and ALAC sound formats up to 48kHz/24-bit. A digital output has been added to send audio without degradation, while the power supply for analogue audio is completely separated from the digital circuit to reduce noise.
Easily browse your rekordbox library using the rotary button next to the display, or use the Qwerty keyboard to search for specific keywords. Advanced features such as Matching and Track Filter help you play the right track at the right time.
8 Hot Cues allow instant playback at a preset point, while Quantize allows you to play cue and loop points in time with the music on tracks that have been beat analysed in rekordbox . Use Beat Jump to jump backwards or forwards 1, 2 or 4 beats from the current playback position.
ADD A DDJ-SP1
Add the DDJ-SP1 to your set-up and access even more performance features. Simply plug in a USB cable and control up to 4 XDJ-1000MK2s using Pro DJ Link.
PRO DJ LINK
Pro DJ Link lets you connect up to 4 players or laptops via a simple LAN connection. Combine this with rekordbox and get your hands on enhanced performance features and track info, such as Beat Sync, Beat Countdown, Beat Jump and Phase Meter.
