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-2000 can 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-inch color 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-coded by 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-2000NXS is 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-beat performances 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-2000NXS is 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-R DL (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-sided disc, one side of which contains DVD content — video, audio, etc. — while the other side contains non-DVD content 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.

About ejecting discs by force

!If the disc cannot be ejected by pressing the [DISC EJECTh] button, the disc can be forcibly ejected by inserting the disc force eject pin into the disc force eject pin insertion hole on the main unit’s front panel.

!When forcibly ejecting a disc, be sure to do so following the procedure below.

1 Press the [POWER ON/OFF] button to turn this unit’s power off, then wait at least 1 minute.

Never forcibly eject a disc directly after turning off the set’s power. Doing so is dangerous for the reasons described below.

The disc will still be spinning when ejected and could hit your fingers, etc., causing injury.

Also, the disc clamp will rotate in an unstable way, and the disc could get scratched.

2 Use the included disc force eject pin. (Do not use anything else.)

The included disc force eject pin is mounted on this unit’s bottom panel. When the pin is inserted all the way into the insertion hole, the disc is ejected 5 mm to 10 mm out of the disc insertion slot. Grasp the disc with your fingers and pull it out.

Cautions on use

About condensation

Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit (on operating parts and lenses) in the winter, for example, if the unit is moved from a cold place into a warm room or if the temperature in the room in which the unit is installed rises suddenly (through heating, etc.). The unit will not operate properly and will not be playable with condensation inside. Let the unit stand for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature (though this time depends on the conditions of the condensation) without turning on the power. The water droplets will evaporate and the unit will become playable. Condensation can occur in the summer as well if the unit is exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner, etc. If this happens, move the unit to a different location.

Cleaning the lens

The player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for players are commercially available, we advise against using them since some may damage the lens.

Handling discs

Storing

!Always place discs in their cases and store them vertically, avoiding hot, humid places, places exposed to direct sunlight and extremely cold places.

!Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc.

Cleaning discs

!Discs may not play if there are fingerprints or dust on them. In this case, use a cleaning cloth, etc., to gently wipe the disc from the inside towards the outside. Do not use dirty cleaning cloths.

!Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals. Also do not use record spray or antistatic agents.

!For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth.

!Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.

!Do not let the signal surface of discs get scratched or dirty.

!Do not place two discs in the disc tray, one on top of the other.

!Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to discs. Doing so could warp discs, making it impossible to play them. Also note that rental discs often have labels attached to them, and the label’s glue may have oozed out. Check that there is no glue around the edges of such labels before using rented discs.

About specially shaped discs

Irregularly shaped discs other than standard 12 cm discs cannot be played on this unit (doing so will lead to damage or accidents). Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexagonal, etc.) cannot be played on this unit. Do not attempt to play such discs, as they could damage the unit.

About condensation on discs

Water droplets (condensation) may form on the surface of discs if they are moved from a cold place (particularly in winter) into a warm room. Discs may not play normally if there is condensation on them. Carefully wipe the water droplets off the surface of the disc before loading it.
