Equipped with PRO DJ LINK, the function that makes linked multi-DJ play a reality
Sharing an SD Card*1/ USB Storage Devices
The music files and control data saved on an SD card*1 or USB storage device can be shared and played on up to four multi players*2 via this mixer.
The music files and control data inside rekordbox™ can be called out and played on multi players*2 via this mixer.
Sound input from a MIC or sound output from the MASTER can be recorded to this mixer and played on a multi players*2. Voice recorded from the MIC can be immediately used in scratching or for other new performances.
The music files in rekordbox™ can be monitored on headphones. This allows the DJ to check the song before playing it on a player, thus smoothing out the process of selecting a song and playing it.
The status of each connected channel is sent to the multi players*2. Live on-air*3 deck feedback shows the channel in play allowing the status to be checked at a glance and making for a worry-free performance.
“BEAT SLICE” function to create new track slices using the touch panel.Spontaneously sample, slice and chop tracks to create original arrangements – while the unit’s Quantize function analyses rekordbox™ track information on connected players*2 to automatically snap new creations to the beat.
“SYNC MASTER”, collectively controlling beat of multiple players.Beats (tempo and beat position) of tracks playing on CDJ-2000nexus connected to the mixer via LINK can be automatically syncthronized with the master clock of the mixer. The playback tempo can also be adjusted using the mixer touch panel. The unit’s Quantize function uses “PRO DJ LINK” to retrieve rekordbox™ BPM and beat grid information from connected players*2 or laptops, to automatically sync all Beat Effects in perfect time with the mix.
Pioneer DJ multi players*2 that are compatible with PRO DJ LINK and a computer with rekordbox™ installed can be connected to the mixer via a LAN cable, allowing to use PRO DJ LINK features.
Please refer to our support site for PRO DJ LINK set up guide and the list of the verified switching hubs for PRO DJ LINK.
The intuitive layout makes performance a breeze and facilitates original arrangement to music.
The interface has been placed in the center of the mixer to enable an individual, intuitive performance. A DJ can add arrangements to the music with a variety of controls, such as Tap, Warp and Trace on the three Effect sections. And the three Effect sections can be used in combination, giving the DJ all the more scope for original arrangements.
■Four New Performance Modes using the 5.8 inch Full-Color, Multi-touch Display
We’ve adopt a 5.8 inch large LCD multi-touch panel display. So the DJ can see and hear the result of effects, while easily and intuitively operating the mixer like none before, and we’ve added 4 kinds of performance modes. The BEAT SLICE REMIX, creating new track slices, the SIDECHAIN REMIX, with its seven kinds of dynamic effects, the FREQUENCY MIX, enabling a more precise music mix, and the four types of MIDI mode that allow the DJ to use a computer-all making every DJing scene and DJ playing style possible.
BEAT SLICE REMIX SIDECHAIN REMIX FREQUENCY MIX MIDI
■Evolved BEAT EFFECTS manipulate every frequency and alter sound to the beat with the automatic beat matching function “QUANTIZE”
Equipped with an evolved BEAT EFFECT, a highly acclaimed function of the DJM series. EFFECT FREQUENCY allows the DJ to control the level of effects to add to each frequency band, so an echo can be added just to the vocals, or the hi-hat rhythm can be doubled, providing flexibility to perform like never before. Physical buttons have also been added for selecting effects and beats, making it possible to jump between different measures instantly.
■BEAT EFFECT accuracy with the addition of the QUANTIZE*4 function
The Quantize function has been added which automatically corrects BEAT EFFECT to play on-beat using the beat position information as analyzed in rekordbox™ music management software. Even if you miss the input timing for an effect while you are DJing, the effect will be adjusted automatically to the analyzed beat position, allowing you to apply effects on-beat with 100% accuracy.
■REVERB function for dynamic song arrangement
In addition to the length of the reverb effect, you can now adjust the openness of the simulated space at the same time. This increases the strength of the effect and allows you to dynamically arrange songs as you mix them during your DJ performance.
■FILTER function for quick effect performance
Pioneer changed the FILTER BEAT EFFECT so that when you turn the level knob for the effect all the way to the left, the FILTER function turns OFF and only the source audio is output. This allows you to turn the FILTER effect ON and OFF smoothly for quick and easy effect performance.
EFFECT SELECT AND EFFECT FREQENCY
■INST FX allows effects to be applied intuitively, with just the turn of a knob
Six effects(NOISE, HPF, LPF, JET, ZIP & CRUSH) on every channel with rotary control for an intuitive performance. The PARAMETER knob allows for fine tuning of each effect. Pioneer broadened the adjustment range for the NOISE to increase the maximum output volume for this effect. This allows you to add sufficient NOISE even to songs that are input at a high volume.Maximum volume of “OSCILLATOR” and “SAMPLE” in SIDECHAIN REMIX*5 have been increased as well.
Internal USB Audio Interface
The mixer is equipped with a USB Audio Interface, which allows the audio signal of music playing on a computer to be input to the DJM-2000nexus via a USB connection with the computer*6. This makes it possible to use a computer, even without an external sound card, for DJ play. From one computer up to a maximum of four sources of audio signal can be assigned to each channel and mixed. It is also possible to choose to output the audio out of the master channel to the computer. This makes it extremely convenient to record the mixed audio*7.
Newly developed peak limiter that allows playback while limiting track distortion, even at high audio volumes
The mixer comes with a new peak limiter that allows playback of master output tracks while limiting distortion, even at maximum output sound levels. This prevents delays in the output audio, while limiting track distortion naturally without affecting the powerful rhythms of tracks.
High-durability channel fader used for non-stop smooth operations
A high-performance channel fader has been used to improve durability. This ensures smooth operations even in the demanding surroundings of a club.

Advanced design that matches the professional CDJ-2000nexus model
Chrome-plating has been applied to knobs used for adjusting effect frequencies, and a white LED has been used for the beat button used to control beat effects. The look matches that of the CDJ-2000nexus system when they are placed side-by-side, while designed with an advanced appearance.
