The World of Digital DJing: The Pioneer CDJ setup

Pioneer CDJ decks are classic pieces of equipment in the digital DJing world. The CDJ revolutionized the performance DJ world, offering transport controls that could not be found on analog turntables, in a format that could store more songs. With their tactile feel, intuitive controls, and rock-solid performance spinning physical CDs as well as digital files, CDJs found favor with DJs in the early 2000s, and Pioneer's constant innovation has kept them at the forefront since then.

A typical CDJ setup includes two CDJ decks and a mixer -- a simple, modular rig that works with or without a computer. This setup is very similar to spinning vinyl -- so DJs that long for the tactile control of turntables will absolutely love the feel of CDJs. Best of all, today's CDJs are loaded with modern functions that keep them in competition with new and innovative DJ performance gear.

Each section below represents an integral part of the CDJ setup. Make your selections, build your rig, and rock the party!
CDJ Media Players
The Pioneer CDJ is essentially a standard CD player on steroids. Insert a CD, DVD or USB memory stick and play a variety of formats including MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF. Nudge the jog wheels on top of your CDJs to line up songs, and use the pitch/time shifters to beat-match songs. This workflow appeals to DJs that want the classic experience of manually lining up tracks on analog turntables.

Today's CDJs come loaded with the latest technology available for the format. The CDJ-2000nexus features WiFi connectivity, for wireless access to the digital sound library on your WiFi-enabled laptop or tablet. The CDJ-2000nexus also has tools for automatic beat analyzing, quantizing and looping -- ensuring that even the least experienced DJ in the room will never miss a beat!

DJ Mixers
So you've got your CDJs playing some banging tracks -- how do you control what the crowd hears? Add a DJ mixer to balance and transition the music you send out to the club speakers. Your mixer acts as a central hub, taking in multiple audio signals and distributing them via user-operated faders and knobs. Tweak each channel's EQ and add effects to modify your tracks on fly.

The mixer counterpart to the CDJ-2000nexus, the Pioneer DJM-2000nexus boasts a 5.8-inch multi-touch display that lets you tap and swipe to save samples, cue loops, and drop effects into your mix. The DJM-2000nexus also features USB connectivity for external hard drives or your laptop -- so you can transition from "analog" CDJ operation, to full-fledged computer DJ.

For an even deeper mixing experience, check out the Pioneer RMX-1000 Remix Station. With this controller, you can sample, loop, and arpeggiate your music for stunning remixes on the fly. Pro Tip: Scratch your CDJs while the RMX-1000 is engaged to create all-new scratching effects and rhythms using the RMX-1000's tempo mapping.

Headphones
When you are playing in a loud club, your best friend is a good pair of headphones. Headphones are the best way to cue up the next song, match its tempo, and prepare to transition to it, without interrupting the main mix. The DJ mixers listed above have a special output called a "cue out" or "monitor out." This output is the DJ's own monitor mix: it allows you to hear the current song while you audition the next track, and sync up the tempo -- providing the audience with a seamless transition.

You'll need headphones to cue up your next track. But what's so special about DJ headphones? For starters, DJ headphones have large, circumaural, over-the-ear earcups to help isolate you from outside noise. Most DJ headphones' earcups swivel 180 degrees, so you can wear them one-sided when you want to hear what the audience hears. Look for features like a detachable, replaceable cable and a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter, and specs like a wide frequency response and high output.

Powered Speakers
If you're a mobile DJ who plays gigs outside of established clubs or bars, you'll likely going to have to bring your own sound reinforcement. Not to worry: today's PA speakers are lighter, more powerful, and simpler to use than ever before. Active, powered PA speakers with built-in amplifiers minimize the amount of gear you need to lug around. Check out the lightweight QSC K12, which includes DEEP processing to bring more bass out of your music, or consider the Mackie Thump TH15A with its large 15" woofer for supreme low-end response.

Powered Subwoofers
While not every gig requires a subwoofer, you and your audience will appreciate the deep bass that these dedicated low-frequency speakers provide. Since lower frequencies require more energy than higher frequencies, choose a sub with a higher wattage than your main full-range speakers. These powered subwoofers require no external power amps or crossovers -- just daisy-chain your sub from one of your main speakers' "thru" outputs.

Cables
Don't ignore the quality of your cables. Cables -- while not the sexiest purchase -- are one of the most important parts of your setup. A quality cable allows your signal to reach its destination at the correct voltage, delivering the sound you intend.

Connect each CDJ to your mixer with a dual RCA cable like the Hosa Beatport Stereo Dual RCA to RCA Cable. Grab a pair of XLR cables like the Mogami Gold Studio Microphone Cable or Monster Cable Standard 100 Microphone Cable to connect your mixer's output to the PA or club system. And for recording your main mix into an interface or standalone recorder, you may need a pair of Hosa STXM XLR-M to Male 1/4" TRS Interconnect Cables.

Cases
A high-quality case protects your gear from damage while on the go. The hard-shell aluminum On-Stage FC5000CDJ CDJ Player Case will protect your CDJ when it's loaded into a cramped van full of gear. If you travel with your gear frequently, flight cases are essential to keeping it in working condition -- and this is especially true with sensitive electronic equipment such as the CDJ. For even more convenience, the Road Ready RRCDJ200010W DJ Case fits two CDJs, a mixer, and a laptop stand that folds out -- so you can load in, set up your gear, and rock the party in record time.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
