4-channel DJ mixer with plenty of effects and a 24-bit.96kHz high-performance soundcard.
The DJM-900nexus is a high-performance digital mixer designed for todayâ€™s professional DJ performers. An ideal combination with Pioneerâ€™s latest CDJ line of players, the DJM-900nexus offers a multitude of new features including a variety of onboard effects, increased sound quality, and direct PC or Mac connection to enable any DJ to perform to their utmost potential.
Multitude of Effects
The DJM-900nexus follows Pioneerâ€™s traditional control layout enabling an easy transition to the mixer. As with other Pioneer mixers, the DJM-900nexus features a variety of advanced sound effects that allow you, the DJ, to have more creative expressions while mixing your music. Three new Sound Color FX, two Beat Effects, and an X-Pad control were added to the mixer to enhance the your performance.
Sound Color FX – The DJM-900nexus includes Space, Dub Echo, and Gate/Comp in addition to Filter, Crush, and Noise for its Sound Color FX. At any time with a simple twist of the knobs, you can quickly add their choice of audio effects bringing numerous combinations and arrangements to currently played music.
Beat Effect – A total of 13 effects, including two new ones called Spiral and Melodic, can be added at any time to the beat effects through a selectable knob located on the right side of the mixer.
X-Pad – A touchscreen control bar that enables quick access, control, and manipulation of the thirteen built-in beat effects. With a touch and/or slide of the X-Pad control, you can change the parameters of each effect for further creativity in performances.
Part of the DJM-900nexusâ€™s design attribute is combining functionality with great sound quality. The mixer utilizes high-quality components that ensure the best possible audio output when connected to other components.
Built-in 24-bit/96kHz high-performance USB Sound card – Pioneer developed an onboard USB sound card that can simultaneously handle input and output audio signals from up to four (4) stereo sources through a single USB port. The soundcard supports 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution signal processing, and can input and output all audio signals with no degradation of sound quality. Once connected to a PC or Mac, the settings utility tool can be used to customize the mixer’s output signal path to suit various purposes, such as DJ play, song recording, or production. Furthermore, smooth transfers between DJs are possible with the easily accessible USB ports on the top surface of the mixer.
Sound Quality Design – The DJM-900nexus is equipped with the same audio input and output circuits as Pioneer’s flagship DJM-2000 to achieve the most accurate audio reproduction from connected sources. The 32-bit digital-to-analog converter supports all outputs of the mixer, including the master audio outputs, booth outputs, as well as headphones. Additionally, the built-in high-performance, 32-bit digital signal processor (DSP) suppresses any digital and analog circuit noise by way of high-quality balanced hybrid operation amps and full-balanced output circuits.
With more DJs continuing to use their personal computers as part of their rig, the new DJM-900nexus is ready for a direct connection to a laptop PC or Mac, increasing its convenience and functionality.
PRO DJ LINK – Via an Ethernet (LAN) cable, the mixer can quickly link to the latest Pioneer PRO DJ LINK compatible CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900 players (with firmware version 4.00 or later, both sold separately) or a personal computer running Pioneer’s rekordbox software (sold separately), giving you fast access to a song’s beats per minute (BPM) and beat location information, resulting in a precise beat matching capability. Furthermore, the built-in quantize mode compensates for Beat Effect operation timing errors automatically, so effects are matched perfectly.
TRAKTOR Functionality – Using a USB connection with a PC or Mac, the four decks (players) inside TRAKTOR (sold separately) can be connected simultaneously with the mixer, enabling enhanced flexibility with the software. In addition, the mixer is also TRAKTOR SCRATCH (sold separately) certified for TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO / DUO 2 (version 2.0 or higher, sold separately), allowing scratch control functionality when using a time code disc.
Time Code Output – Through its USB port, the mixer can output time code disc signals for DVS (Digital Vinyl System) software when used with a Pioneer CDJ player or analog record player. DJ play using DVS software can be done without difficult and complicated connections.
