Multi Player

CDJ-350

TRAKTOR PRO

Connection Guide

Introduction

The CDJ-350 is equipped with a computer control mode that allows DJ software developed by other companies to be controlled upon connecting the Multi Player to a computer with a USB cable. Pioneer provides a dedicated MIDI mapping file for TRAKTOR PRO, a DJ software product from Native Instruments. By using this file, you can control TRAKTOR PRO from the Multi Player.

You can also use the Multi Player as a TRAKTOR PRO audio output device.

* The TRAKTOR original function does not have a RELOOP function. (It is a unique function of the MIDI control.)

Operate the TRAKTOR PRO browser tree and browser list as follows.

Browser tree : While pressing the [BACK] button (C), turn the rotary selector (D) to your desired selection, and press the selector to choose the selection.

Browser list : Turn the rotary selector (D) to your desired selection. Press the selector to choose the selection.

When you use such functions as scratch and pitch bend, the sound volume and play speed increments will be different from when run on a standalone CDJ-350.

The operation of Multi Player LED indicators (ON, OFF) and the contents of the main unit’s console display are not linked with the MIDI control.

You can change the assignment of any Multi Player button to a corresponding TRAKTOR PRO function by modifying the mapping. For details, refer to the TRAKTOR PRO instruction manual.

If any of these other Pioneer models—CDJ-2000, CDJ-900, or CDJ-400—is used together with the CDJ-350, the MIDI channel for these other models should be set to Channel 5 or higher. For details on how to configure the MIDI channels, see the instruction manual for the respective model.
