Pioneer DJ DDJ-800 Performance Controller for Rekordbox DJ

Light and compact, but heavy on features, the DDJ-800 gives you control over 2 decks in Rekordbox DJ with on-jog color displays, Feedback Reducer and more.
Take a pro setup wherever you go with the Pioneer DDJ-800, a compact 2-channel DJ performance controller for dedicated use with Pioneer DJ's professional performance application, Rekordbox DJ. The DDJ-800 is designed to help you get the most from Rekordbox.

Inheriting the layout from Pioneer's pro-level DJ controller, the DDJ-1000 -- which has earned a strong reputation with professional DJs who perform at weddings, parties, and events outside the club environment -- the DDJ-800 packs a host of performance features into a lighter body.

The DDJ-800 is the first piece of hardware compatible with the Feedback Reducer feature in Rekordbox DJ which automatically lessens the "howling" sound of microphone feedback. The DJ controller also features Color On Jog Display, giving you all the information you need for professional performances right in the center of each jog wheel.

Compact, Lighter, Portable Body

Take the DDJ-800 wherever you want thanks to its portable design, which is smaller than the DDJ-1000 by 22% in volume and 1.3 kg in weight.

Color On Jog Display For Quick Reference And Accurate Performances

The DDJ-800 is Pioneer DJ's first 2-channel controller to feature high-definition LCD screens showing information such as playback time, BPM, and waveforms in the read more center of each jog wheel. Cue Scope indicates the distance in bars from the current playback position to Hot Cue points and Loop points, enabling you to mix quickly and more accurately. You can choose to display full artwork on the displays, helping you instantly identify the track loaded on a deck by simply looking at the jog wheel.

Feedback Reducer: The First Feature on a DJ Controller to Lessen Microphone "Howling"

Pass the mic around with confidence. The DDJ-800 is the first controller that supports the new Feedback Reducer feature in rekordbox dj, which instantly detects the "howling" frequency of feedback and brings it down. Plus, two independent mic inputs give you greater flexibility when you're juggling DJs, MCs, and guest speakers.

Club-Style Layout and Features

Perform with the DDJ-800 as if you're using our flagship setup. All the buttons, knobs, and faders on the controller are arranged and used in the same way as those on Pioneer DJ's club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 setup.

Use Feeling Adjust to set the resistance on the jog wheels to your preferred weight for scratching and spice up your sets with the popular Sound Color FX and Beat FX from Pioneer DJ's DJM mixer series. You can instantly reference BPM and the name of the selected FX without looking at your PC/Mac thanks to the dedicated Beat FX display, making it easy to use the FX whenever inspiration strikes.

Audio Mixer Feature: Control External Input Volume

You can use the DDJ-800 as a mixer to control the volume of audio input from an external device -- even when you're using it on its own -- by adjusting the trims, channel faders and EQs. And, when the controller is connected to Rekordbox DJ, you can use Sound Color FX and Beat FX too.

- Performance Pads: use the 16 tactile illuminated rubber pads (8 per deck) to trigger Hot Cues, Pad FX, Beat Jump, Sampler, Keyboard mode, and more

"For the most part I like it quite a bit."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Was looking for a new controller to replace my Denon MC6000MK2. I do weddings and needed a portable controller, with 2 Mic inputs, stand alone, with at least an aux out. The DDJ 800 hit all the check marks, but I found it quite pricey. After some serious thought I pulled the trigger. I am a Virtual DJ user and was a bit worried about using Rekordbox I own Serato but still prefer VDJ. The Rekordbox program is simply outstanding. The controller is the right size for a mobile DJ. It is quite light , and built decently. I was disappointed that for $900 it was all plastic. I would have preferred at least a metal top plate, but that would have added additional weight, so it's a give and take. The unit works like a charm. Adding my music, and downloading the program was a breeze. The sound-card is simply beautiful to listen to. It seemed like my mixes and transitions were easier, than on my MC6000MK2. Virtual DJ is already working on a mapping, but I might just stay using Rekordbox. The attenuation on the mics is a welcome addition. Most DJ controllers have poor mic inputs. Your Mic is usually too hot. The unit allows you to correct a too hot mic. I Have not used it on a gig yet, but I feel pretty confident with it. I am happy with my purchase and for the most part I love the unit, but $900! (ouch!!!) If not for Play as You Play I might have skipped this unit.
