Pioneer DJ DDJ-400 Controller for Rekordbox DJ

Perfect for learners but deep enough for pros, Pioneer's DDJ-400 is an affordable 2-channel Rekordbox DJ controller inspired by Pioneer DJ's top club decks.
If you want to try DJing at home and see how far you can take it, Pioneer has created the perfect controller to learn on: the DDJ-400. Made for dedicated use with our professional performance application, rekordbox dj (free license key included), the 2-channel DDJ-400 is designed to help you get the most from rekordbox software.

Introduce yourself to the DDJ-400 from Pioneer:


The DDJ-400 is the ideal piece of kit for first-time DJs. Its controls enable you to easily learn the basics, plus it's packed with features that will help you develop your skills. The controller is compatible with the Tutorial feature in rekordbox dj, which explains basic equipment operation step by step. Even if you've never ventured behind the decks before, you can learn how to DJ.

Thanks to the lightweight and portable design, you can take the DDJ-400 to friends' houses to practice together or bring it to parties and small venues to perform. And if you want to take mixing to the next level, you'll feel at home in the club DJ booth because the DDJ-400 inherits design traits from our professional range controllers. The layout of dedicated play/pause and cue buttons, Beat FX, CDJ-style looping controls and more is inherited from our NXS2 set-up.

"Back at it after a few years off. DDJ 400 is awesome!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
After taking a break for a few years and, honestly thinking I would never DJ again, I got the DDJ 400 to play a few gigs and start playing at home again. Long story short, I LOVE it! It has allowed me to not only start playing again, but has given me the tools to take my playing to a whole new level. I first bought a Mixtrack Platinum and while I really liked jog wheel display, as a whole, the sound and build quality can't touch Pioneer. Rekordbox is just as good as Serato at the basic level but even better in many other ways, plus you get the FULL version of Rekordbox without having to Shell out another $150-$200.i couldn't be happier with my purchase. DDJ 400 gives you basic professional quality gear at an entry level price. I also can not say enough about the folks at zZounds and their customer service. I will never shop anywhere else. They not only helped me decide what to do when I was unhappy with the Numark, they made the return and exchange process totally painless. 10/10!
