See what it means to be a Pioneer
DJ EXPO 2013: Since the introduction of the CDJ-500 in 1994, Pioneer has been at the forefront of the DJ industry. Responsible for revolutionising the industry in the early nineties by bringing CDs into the booth for the first time, Pioneer is continuing to push the industry forward.
Celebrating its diamond jubilee this year, the products on show are every bit as impressive as the company's rich history. As the name suggests, Pioneer has been manufacturing innovative products since it was established in 1938. There have been many firsts along the way and now the world's first wireless DJ controller has been introduced.
The Electronic Dance Music industry is growing and Pioneer is spearheading that growth by injecting its latest range with innovation and ingenuity to allow DJs to reach their full potential.
First up, the recently released DJM-750 with boost colour FX control via a single chrome knob gives DJs a new level of creativity. The stylish entry-level DDJ-WeGO is now iPad compatible with the DJay app and DJC-WeCAi cable, opening the doors to a whole new world of portable DJing.
The XDJ-AERO is the world's first portable Rekordbox DJ controller and allows DJs to play off a smartphone or tablet with Pioneer's proprietary software and app, Rekordbox. It works in the same way as the industry standard CDJ/DJM-2000nexus set-up found in DJ booths across the world giving DJs a chance to perfect their sets before gigs.
The Pioneer XDJ-R1 complete DJ system is the all-in-one dream: the union of CD/USB decks, DJ software control, a top-flight mixer, powerful performance features and - in an industry first - intuitive remote control via iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
The perfect package for DJs who demand flexibility without the fuss, the self-contained XDJ-R1 enables instant switching between multiple sources: twin CD, USB and MIDI. DJs can analyse tracks in the included rekordbox DJ software and load via USB media to access a host of exciting features including Beat Sync and Quantized Beat FX. Or they can choose MIDI to control any DJ software, such as the included VirtualDJ LE.
The XDJ-R1 crams Pioneer DJ's extensive capabilities into one portable, rekordbox ready, affordable unit. All DJs need add is creativity.
The new DJM-750 four-channel digital mixer takes FX manipulation and software synergy to new levels, thanks to the new Boost Colour FX and a built-in 24-bit/96 kHz USB sound card.
The DJM-750 combines the latest audio and FX technology in an attractively priced four-channel mixer. The new addition meets the demands of today's DJs, with PC/Mac compatibility right out of the box.
Loaded with features to inspire creativity, the new Boost Colour FX adds a second effect to the Sound Colour FX in play, and lets DJs control the parameters of both FX with just one knob. The mixer boasts 13 Beat FX – including the new VINYL BRAKE – with a dedicated Level/Depth knob.
Unleash your creativity with the twist of a knob.
DDJ-WeGO is a highly compact and easy-to-carry controller, compatible with Virtual DJ LE, Serato DJ Intro and Algoriddim Djay. Now iPad-compatible, the DDJ-WeGO is more portable than ever, through the DJC-WeCAi cable and DJay/VJay app.
Available in multiple colours and built to the same high-quality standard of other Pioneer products, the DDJ-WeGO is the perfect solution for beginners, including unique pulse control LED lights that aid in perfecting beat matching.
If you are looking to make your first tentative steps in the world of DJing, then the DDJ-WeGO is the perfect introduction. Despite its affordable price, it still has the Pioneer build quality and has a recognisable layout to what you might expect to find on a set-up at a club in Ibiza.
Start at the DDJ-WeGO and guide yourself through the range until you are mixing like James Zabiela. Simple!
Pioneer CDJ-2000 NEXUS
The latest incarnation of the renowned CDJ range has been designed to take DJing to the next level with a whole host of features to unleash creativity.
Keeping the same DNA as its predecessor, the CDJ-2000nexus has new Quantize functions to keep everything in perfect time, whilst dedicated controls for Master and Sync also ensure there are no nasty beat clashes. Mixing in key is also now better than ever with the Nexus - thanks to a traffic light system that allows DJ's to see which will combine well.
Add the ability to load music via USB, CD or now even Wi-Fi as well as an informative, pinsharp display, and the CDJ-2000 Nexus promises a revolution in DJing.
