Autumn arrived with the news that Pioneer were launching an augmented version of their much-loved CDJ-2000 deck.
The CDJ-2000nexus offered all sorts of nifty improvements, including the ability to auto-sync cued tracks to the master deck, a range of advanced looping features, and some onboard recordbox functions. As Resident Advisor report, Pioneer are expanding the range with a newly revamped mixer.
The DJM-2000nexus is an improved version of the DJM-2000 mixer. The principal new change is the ability to link multiple CDJs using ProDJ Link LAN connections, meaning that a single USB device or SD card can be shared between players. Users will also be able to control the BPM from the mixer console, and make use of a newly engineered peak limiter. The console also includes a selection of new “performance” modes – Frequency Mix, MIDI mode and Side Chaining Remix. As per its predecessor, the DJM-2000nexus will also feature a multi-touch screen and a host of Beat Effect and Inst FX.
The machine is expected to retail at approximately 2299€. A video of the kit in operation is included below – head to the Pioneer site for more informatoin.
