The Safety of Your Ears is in Your Hands

Get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level – a level that lets the sound come through clearly without annoying blaring or distortion and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing. Sound can be deceiving. Over time, your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound, so what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.

ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL:

Set your volume control at a low setting.

Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level, set the dial and leave it there.

BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:

Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.

Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle; the use of headphones may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.

S001a_A1_En

POWER-CORD CAUTION

Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed such that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

Features

This unit is a 4-channel mixer optimally designed for DJ performances using the “Serato DJ” DJ software by Serato. It is equipped with an internal sound card that is compatible with Serato DJ, so performances using Serato DJ can be held immediately after connecting this unit with a computer using a USB cable, with no need to make any troublesome settings.

Furthermore, Serato DJ’s scratch function can be controlled using the included CONTROL VINYL (record) or CONTROL CD.

In addition, this unit carries over the main functions, quality and performance of the Pioneer DJM-900nexus, a standard model in clubs throughout the world, offering powerful support for performances by all professional DJs active in the club scene.

PLUG AND PLAY

This unit is equipped with a built-in USB sound card for connecting a computer. A computer can be connected simply using a single USB cable; there is no need to procure a separate sound card in addition to this unit.

Also, when Serato DJ is launched, this unit is automatically selected as the sound device, so DJ performances using Serato DJ can be held immediately, with no need to make any troublesome settings.

Furthermore, Serato DJ’s scratch function can be controlled using the included CONTROL VINYL (record) or CONTROL CD.

HIGH SOUND QUALITY

This unit uses a 32-bit D/A converter and other parts that are equivalent to those of high grade audio equipment, greatly improving the sound quality of not only the

master output but also the headphones and booth output. The use of a 32-bit digital signal processor suppresses digital noise. Furthermore, for the analog circuitry as well, a high sound quality balanced hybrid operational amplifier and a fully balanced output circuitry are used to reduce noise.

SOUND COLOR FX&BEAT FX

This unit is equipped with the SOUND COLOR FX and BEAT FX functions that have been well received on the DJM series. With SOUND COLOR FX, the effects you are aiming to create can be applied simply by turning the knob, letting you make original arrangements of tracks and enabling a wide variety of remixing possibili-

ties. Also, the BPM and beat position information of the track currently playing with Serato DJ can be obtained via USB, so BEAT EFFECT can be applied on beat thanks to the highly precise BPM information. Also, by using the quantize mode, the effect timing is automatically corrected even if the BEAT EFFECT operation is performed off timing, so effects can be applied in beat.

DURABLE FADER

The crossfader and channel faders use a sliding structure in which the fader knobs are supported by two metal shafts. This provides both smooth operation with no wobbling and high durability. It also keeps any adverse effects from liquids or dust getting into the faders to a minimum. For scratch play compatibility, the crossfader uses a uniquely developed magnetic system that provides a high durability of over 10 million operations with subtle operability. The channel faders provide approximately three times greater operation durability as compared to a previous Pioneer model (DJM-800).

STANDARD LAYOUT

This unit carries over the control panel layout of the Pioneer DJM series, the world standard in DJ mixers.

The simple, straightforward control panel layout not only facilitates DJ performances but lets even DJs using this unit for the first time to operate it without hesitation, so it can be used without worry as a mixer that is permanently installed in the club.

Connect to a phono level (MM cartridge) output device. Do not input line level signals.

To connect a device to the [PHONO] terminals, remove the short-circuit pin plug inserted in the terminals.

Insert this short-circuit pin plug into the [PHONO] terminals when nothing is connected to them to cut external noise.

4 CD/LINE terminals (page 11)

Connect to a DJ player or a line level output component.

5 SIGNAL GND terminal (page 11)

Connects an analog player’s ground wire here. This helps reduce noise when the analog player is connected.

B LINK terminal (page 11)

Connect these to the LINK terminals on Pioneer DJ players or the LAN ports of computers on which rekordbox is installed (PRO DJ LINK).

To connect multiple devices, use a switching hub (commercially available). Use a 100Base-TX-compatible switching hub. Some switching hubs may not operate properly.

D REC OUT terminals (page 11)

These are output terminals for recording.

E MASTER2 terminals (page 11)

Connect to a power amplifier, etc.

F MASTER1 terminals (page 11)

Connect to a power amplifier, etc.

Be sure to use these as balanced outputs. Be careful not to accidentally insert the power cord of another unit.

G SEND terminals (page 11)

Connect to the input terminal of an external effector. When the [L (MONO)] channel only is connected, a monaural audio signal is output.

H AC IN

Connects to a power outlet using the included power cord. Wait until all connections between the equipment are completed before connecting the power cord. Be sure to use the included power cord.

WARNING

The short-circuit pin plugs out of the reach of children and infants. If accidentally swallowed, contact a doctor immediately.
