The Pioneer CDJ-2000 is the current cream of the CDJ crop, introducing advanced features that build upon 15 years of experience and the CDJ name that Pioneer themselves introduced in 1994. The CDJ-2000 is the indisputable king of the CD-DJ food chain.
The CDJ-2000 introduces a wide array of features designed to make the professional DJ's life easier. In addition to audio CDs, the CDJ-2000 can read digital audio files in WAV, MP3, ACC, and AIFF formats from data CD-Rs, DVD-Rs, USB drives and SD cards. Connect multiple CDJ-2000s together with the Pro DJ Link Port and each deck will have access to a USB Drive or SD card connected to the master deck. Up to four decks can be connected in a Pro DJ Link network--perfect for tag-team DJing.
RekordBox Media Management Software
The LCD display on the CDJ-2000 is the largest yet for a CDJ. This pairs perfectly with RekordBox, the sophisticated media management software included on every CDJ-2000. A wealth of track information can be edited and displayed, including BPM and key information, track length, and even album artwork for instant recognition. RekordBox can also be used to assemble and manage playlists of tracks and prepared loops and samples, and a quantizing feature makes it easy to set perfectly beat-matched hot cue points and loops. What this means for the DJ is quicker track selection and more time to focus on keeping the party rockin'.
More Connectivity and Better Sound
The CDJ-2000 features advanced MIDI implementation (35 controls can be assigned to DJ software or external MIDI-capable effects modules), and audiophile-grade Wolfson Digital-To-Analog converters deliver the best audio quality yet in a CDJ.
Vinyl Feel Without the Vinyl Noise
CDJ-2000's eliminate all the problems associated with traditional turntables while recreating the tactile experience of scratching on LP platters. At the literal and figurative center of the CDJ's design is its 7.5-inch jog-wheel. With the deck in "Vinyl Mode," DJs can interact with this jog wheel the same way they spin a record. The cut, cue, scratch, nudge, fast-forward and reverse moves are all read with laser-accuracy. The CDJ-2000 even set stops and starts to ramp up or down, and playback can be stopped on a dime by pressing down on the top of the wheel. Finally, the CDJ-2000 introduces the needle Search feature which can be used for quick starts and to simulate needle drops. Just about any move possible on a vinyl turntable can be performed on a CDJ-2000, and in pristine, CD-quality sound. The jog wheel is also resistance-adjustable, so it can be fine-tuned to any player's touch.
Digital Sampling and Looping
The CDJ-2000 features three "Hot Cue" points, each with their own dedicated button, can be used to capture and trigger samples on the fly for one-shot accents or stutter effects. Real-time looping is a breeze, too; loop in- and out-points can be adjusted during playback, and everything can be digitally locked to tempo, an impossibility with analog vinyl decks. Loops and samples can be stored on the included removable SD card.
