The DDJ-400 is a 2-Channel, all-in-one DJ controller that is to be the bigger brother of the extremely popular DDJ-RB. With the new DDJ-400 Pioneer are keen to take the bedroom DJ to the next-level, as not only is a FREE licence key for Pioneer's Rekordbox software included, but the unit itself has a more distinctive 'Club-Style' layout, it included and new 'tutorial' feature and the layout of the looping section, cue buttons and FX are inherited directly from the NXS2 CDJs.
* CLUB-STYLE LAYOUT
As previously mentioned, the Pioneer DJ DDJ-400 is laid-out to be much more like the CDJ-2000NXS & DJM-900NXS set-ups you'd find as standard in today's clubs. It's not just the positioning of the two 'decks' in relation to the mixer. The button and knob configuration also matches the NXS range more.
* PLAYER SECTION
Again, moulded from the CDJ-2000NXS, each of the two player sections is configured as you would find them should you walk into a club and play! The jog wheels, play & pause and cue buttons are exactly where they 'should' be and even the tempo slider has been moved and is not much bigger. Again, to mirror the infamous CDJs.
A switch-up from the DDJ-RB means the mixer section of the DDJ-400 is much more like the industry standard DJM-900NXS. Pioneer have moved the Headphone and Master volume knobs so as the DDJ-400 not only has room for the beat effects on the mixer, but again to re-create that club feel to your playing style.
