Features

This unit is a multi player for professional DJs, offering the variety of functions, durability and operability required for working in discos and nightclubs.

MULTI MEDIA, MULTI FORMAT

The CDJ-2000can play not only discs (CDs and DVDs), but also music files recorded on SD memory cards and USB devices (flash memory drives and hard disks). Supported music file formats include not only music CD(CD-DA)and MP3 but also AAC, WAV and AIFF.

The included rekordbox (Mac/Windows) music management software can be used to prepare playlists, cues, loops, hot cues and beat grids required for DJ play unhurriedly at home. This allows you to devote all your attention to your DJ performance at the disco/nightclub on the day of the performance, with total assurance. From acquiring music files to DJ performances, all steps in the cycle of the DJ’s work can be accomplished smoothly.

rekordbox (Mac/Windows)

rekordbox is a software program allowing users who have purchased a Pioneer DJ player supporting rekordbox to manage music files to be used for DJ performances.

The included rekordbox music management software can be used for the management (analysis, settings, creation, history storage) of

music files on computers. Using music files managed with rekordbox in combination with this unit makes it possible to achieve outstanding DJ performances.

In these operating instructions, the version of rekordbox for Mac/ Windows is referred to as “rekordbox (Mac/Windows)”. “rekordbox” is used to indicate the versions of rekordbox (Mac/Windows) and rekordbox (iOS/Android) simultaneously, as well as when referring to rekordbox functions directly.

rekordbox (iOS/Android)

rekordbox (iOS/Android), a smartphone application that can be downloaded free of charge, can be used for the management (analysis, settings, creation, history storage) of music files on mobile devices. Using music files managed with rekordbox (iOS/Android) in combination with this unit makes it possible to achieve outstanding DJ performances.

!In these operating instructions, the version of rekordbox for mobile devices is referred to as “rekordbox (iOS/Android)”.

PRO DJ LINK

Two types of PRO DJ LINK functions are provided: “SD & USB Export” using an SD memory card or USB device (flash memory device or hard disk) and “rekordbox LINK Export” using a computer on which rekordbox is installed.

SD & USB Export

rekordbox music files and management data can be exchanged using storage devices (SD, USB). This eliminates the need to take the computer to discos or clubs.

rekordbox LINK Export

When this unit and a computer are connected by LAN cable, the rekordbox music files and management data can be exchanged directly. This eliminates the need to export the data to a storage device (SD, USB). Wireless connection using a wireless LAN router (or wireless LAN access point) is also possible.

MY SETTINGS

Some of this unit’s settings can be written onto and called out from storage devices (SD, USB). It is also possible to make this unit’s settings using rekordbox. The settings you use at home can be called out immediately, so you can devote all your attention to your performance at the disco/nightclub, with total assurance.

BROWSE

A large 6.1-inchcolor LCD is used to display not only text data but also jacket photos. The combination of a GUI displaying music file information in easily understandable fashion and a rotary selector with easy operation lets you select tracks with no stress.

WAVE ZOOM

An enlarged waveform of the track that can be enlarged or reduced is displayed. This enlarged waveform is color-codedby band, allowing you to check the track’s information visually in greater detail.

BEAT COUNTDOWN

The number of beats remaining to the stored cue points is displayed. When cue points are set and stored in advance at breaks in the tracks, etc., this gives you an accurate account of the number of beats to the set point.

QUANTIZE

The CDJ-2000NXSis equipped with a quantize function for putting a track on beat even when the button is pressed roughly, as long as the track has been analyzed with rekordbox. When setting real time cues and hot cues, the beat is automatically set to the beat closest to the position at which the button was pressed.

On this unit, accurate, on-beatperformances are possible without breaking the rhythm of the currently playing track, not only when making settings but also when using such functions as looping, reversing and hot cueing during playback.

SLIP MODE

This unit is equipped with a slip mode function that keeps the track moving in the background while looping, reversing, scratching, hot cueing or pausing. This enables innovative DJ performances while maintaining the original track’s development, even after looping, reversing, scratching, hot cueing or pausing are finished.

HIGH SOUND QUALITY

The CDJ-2000NXSis designed for thorough improvement of the sound quality, for both the digital and analog outputs.

For the digital circuitry, a high performance Wolfson D/A converter is used to faithfully reproduce even the most delicate sounds, achieving clear, high quality sound with a rich sense of mass and acoustic field. For the analog circuitry, a hybrid OP amplifier is used to reduce to the utmost limits that inaudible noise of 20 kHz and higher that can blur the original sound. Unwanted digital noise is shut out to achieve clear, highly transparent sound faithful to the original.

BEAT SYNC

The tempo and beat position of the track to be played on this unit can automatically be matched to another DJ player connected by PRO DJ LINK. The assistance to mixing provided by the beat sync function

makes it possible to hold performances with mixing, effects, etc., greatly expanding the range of DJ performances. (The tracks must be analyzed ahead of time with rekordbox in order to use the beat sync function.)

Playback of discs created on a computer or DVD recorder

Depending on the application’s settings and the computer’s environment settings, it may not be possible to play discs created on a computer. Record discs in a format playable on this unit. For details, contact your application’s selling agent.

It may not be possible to play discs created on a computer or DVD recorder due to the disc’s properties, scratches or dirt, or poor recording quality (dirt on the recording lens, etc.).

See Handling discs on page 46 for instructions on handling discs.

Creating backup discs

When CD-R/-RW,DVD-R/-RW,DVD+R/+RW,DVD-RDL (dual layer) and DVD+R DL (dual layer) discs are paused or left in the pause mode at cue points for long periods of time, it may become difficult to play the disc that point, due to the properties of the disc. When a specific point is looped repeatedly an extremely large number of times, it may become difficult to play that point.

When playing valuable discs, we recommend making backup discs.

Regarding copy protected CDs

This unit is designed to CD standards. Operation and performance of discs with standards other than CD standards is not guaranteed.

About playing DualDiscs

A DualDisc is a new two-sideddisc, one side of which contains DVD content — video, audio, etc. — while the other side containsnon-DVDcontent such as digital audio material.

The non-DVD,audio side of the disc is not compatible with this player. For more detailed information on the DualDisc specification, please refer to the disc manufacturer or disc retailer.

About 8 cm discs

8 cm discs cannot be played. Do not mount 8 cm adapters on discs and play the discs on this unit. The adapter could come off while the disc is rotating, damaging both the disc and this unit.

!Some USB devices may not operate properly. Please note that Pioneer will accept no responsibility whatsoever for loss of data stored by the user on USB devices or other direct or indirect problems arising due to connection of USB devices to this unit.

!If a current larger than the allowable value is detected at this unit’s USB device insertion slot, it may happen that the [USB STOP] indicator flashes, the supply of power to the USB device is stopped and communications are interrupted. To restore normal operation, disconnect the USB device from this unit. Avoid using USB devices for which excess currents have been detected. If normal operation is not restored using the method above (if communications cannot be established), turn this unit’s power off then back on.

!If multiple partitions are set on the USB device, only the first partition can be used. (When rekordbox library information is present, the partition containing the rekordbox library information has priority.)
