Pioneer DJ is pushing their NXS line-up to a new level with the addition of the CDJ-900NXS. The new player an evolutionary step from predecessor the CDJ-900 comes packed with new technology – including a full colour LCD screen, Beat Divide and four-deck Beat Sync, as well as allowing you to jam sets from a smarthphone.
The CDJ-900NXS comes with music management software called rekordbox™ (PC and Mac friendly) and a free download of the rekordbox app for devices like tablets and smartphones. All of this allows DJs the ability to prepare sets and playlists on any device. Loading your music onto the CDJ-900NXS is done via USB or Wi-Fii – so your music library is on hand wherever you are. A Pro DJ Link also enables DJs to share one source with up to four decks via LAN cable.
The CDJ-900NXS boasts a high resolution screen, giving DJs a quick and instant view of the Wave Display and Wave Zoom and the ability to view and edit rekordbox beatgrids. Like the top-flight CDJ-2000NXS, the CDJ-900NXS features even more intuitive browsing with the option to see tracks in list, artwork and custom views. Plus mixing tools such as Beat Countdown and Phase Meter can be pre-set in rekordbox for easy viewing during performance.
The old Auto Beat Loop function has been replaced with Beat Divide and Slip Loop: two new functions that make it easier to drastically alter the rhythm and add micro edits, knowing the breakdowns and drops will come when expected.
With Beat Divide, DJs can use the familiar beat buttons to divide each beat by the timing selected and roll the first chunk around in a loop to give a staccato effect that changes with each beat and bar of the track. Engaging Slip Mode transforms the same controls to command a Slip Loop effect, for even more creative expression. This is all in addition to loop functions inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS: Loop, Loop Cutter, Loop Edit and Active Loop.
Other features inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS include a four-deck Beat Sync, to automatically sync the IDM of tracks to the master deck, and a dedicated Quantize button, for instant access to Quantized loops, cues and effects. Add to that Active Loop, My Settings, harmonic Key Analysis Indicator, and the stylish, robust build expected of Pioneer pro-DJ products, and the CDJ-900NXS is a performance force of nature.
