Digital Edge: Introducing the XDJ-1000MK2 Multiplayer – Offering Enhanced Track Browsing Features and High-Quality Audio Support

TORRANCE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pioneer DJ has just announced it has updated one of its popular USB-only
multiplayers to create the XDJ-1000MK2. The new player inherits even
more features from the club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2, including its 7-inch
full-color high-resolution touch screen, enhanced track browsing
functionality, and support for playing high-quality FLAC and ALAC files.
Quickly finding the perfect track to play next is easy thanks to Track
Filter, which filters tracks by BPM and key, and the new Matching
feature which displays suitable tracks you’ve previously tagged in
rekordbox when they’re mixed with the track that’s currently playing.

The XDJ-1000MK2 also retains key features from before. You can use the
Qwerty touch-screen keyboard to search for keywords, then scroll through
results on-screen or with the large rotary dial. You can analyze and
prepare your tracks in rekordbox and the screen will display at-a-glance
information such as Wave Zoom, Beat Counter, Phase Meter and Key
Analysis – as well as provide instant access to your pre-prepared cues,
loops and customized rekordbox settings. Plus, you can color-code your
USB devices and the illuminated USB port will reflect that color, so you
instantly know what’s on each device.

To add even more creativity and variety to your performances, you can
connect the DDJ-SP1
controller (sold separately) and use its large Performance Pads for
tactile control of many of the new or improved features on the
XDJ-1000MK2, including its eight Hot Cues.

The XDJ-1000MK2 will be available in the U.S. and Canada from September
2016, with a retail price of $1,199.00.

CDJ-style design

The XDJ-1000MK2 handles just like the club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2.
Large jog wheels and a 7-inch color touch screen give you intuitive
control over your mix.

High-quality files supported among
various formats

FLAC and ALAC files are now supported for high-quality sound, as
well as MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF files. You can play tracks prepared
in rekordbox directly from your USB storage devices, or from your
laptop by using rekordbox, or from your smartphone/iPhone or tablet
by using rekordbox mobile for Android or iOS.

High-resolution color LCD touch screen

Finding your next track on the XDJ-1000MK2 comes naturally thanks to
the new high-resolution touch screen taken from the CDJ-2000NXS2.
The screen displays large RGB waveforms and includes two new
browsing features, Matching and Track Filter.
Browsing features:

Matching: Audition tracks in rekordbox before your
performance and mark the ones that mix well together. When playing
marked tracks in your set, the XDJ-1000MK2 suggests matched tracks
to play next.

Track Filter: Refine your track search by filtering
tracks by rekordbox information such as My Tag, as well as BPM and
Key. Touch the screen and you can easily find related tracks to
fit into your performance.

Search: Bring up the Qwerty keyboard on the touch screen
to search for tracks quickly by name or keyword.


Expanded performance features

Unleash your creativity using a number of features inherited from
the CDJ-2000NXS2.

• Hot Cues: Instantly start playback at a pre-set point. Up
to eight Hot Cues can be set in advance to give you even more
choice in the mix.

Quantize: Cue and loop points on tracks that have been
beat-analyzed in rekordbox and they will automatically set in time
with the track you’re playing. You can fine-tune the Quantize
value even more accurately for total control.

MIDI controller interface: Connect the DDJ-SP1 controller
with a USB cable for tactile control of numerous features of the
XDJ-1000MK2, including Hot Cues, auto loops and Slip Mode. One
DDJ-SP1 can control up to four XDJ multiplayers using Pro DJ Link.


Pro DJ Link

Pro DJ Link lets you play tracks from one USB device across up to
four multiplayers and unlocks a host of information and features.

Link Export: Connect your laptop using a USB or LAN cable
to play tracks directly from your rekordbox library instead of
using a USB device.

Beat Count and Phase Meter: Use rekordbox to mark key
points on a track, and Beat Count will count down the beats to
them from up to 64 bars away. Phase Meter shows the position of
the beat in the bar, so you can compare the phase of each player
with the master deck at a glance.

Beat Sync: Hit the Beat Sync button and you can align the
beat positions and BPMs of tracks that have been beat-analyzed in
rekordbox, playing on two multiplayers connected by Pro DJ Link.


rekordbox ready

Use rekordbox to manage and prepare your tracks on your PC/Mac,
tablet, smartphone or iPhone and use the XDJ-1000MK2’s features for
creative performances on the fly.

High-quality audio

The XDJ-1000MK2 inherits high-quality audio design from the
CDJ-2000NXS2. Along with analog output terminals, a digital output
sends audio without degradation, and the power supply circuit for
analog audio is completely separate from the digital circuit,
reducing unwanted noise.

Other features

Shortcut button: Instantly switch to Browse mode or bring
up My Settings.

Multi-colored wave display and Wave Zoom: Visually shows
entire tracks from rekordbox.

Memory Cues: Check comments on Memory Cues that you’ve
pre-set in rekordbox.

My Settings: Prepare your system’s setting preferences in
rekordbox and instantly switch to your own settings during DJ
changeovers in the booth.

Beat Jump: Instantly jump backwards or forwards 1, 2 or 4
beats from the current playback position.

Multi-colored USB port: Color-code your USB devices in
rekordbox (e.g. red for techno or blue for drum & bass) and the
light around the USB port will reflect that setting for ease of
identification in the booth.

MIDI/HID control: Use the XDJ-1000MK2 with our
performance application, rekordbox dj.
