DJM-2000 – Professional DJ Mixer Review

A new mixing console Pioneer DJM-2000 can be called a full-fledged music computer. The DJM-2000 uses a new hybrid operational amplifier and a balanced analog circuit. The noise has decreased to a ratio of 107 dB to the signal and has a non-linear distortion factor of 0.004%. So now the laurels of the best sound among the mixers will go to Pioneer.

In addition, the console has 4 assignable stereo channels and 2 for recording a mix – a real gift for DJs. Now the DJM-2000 mixer completely corresponds to the raised CDJ-2000 bracket and meets all the requirements of DJs for the console of the third millennium. Namely: touch screen, 6 effects per channel, built-in USB Audio / MIDI interface, allowing you to work directly with your computer or laptop without resorting to the use of an additional external audio card … And if you add more reliability of assembly and corporate design – all this and the mass other innovations make this model not only a desired, but also an inevitable replacement of the already popular DJ mixers with the already-worn DJ-fingers.

DJM-2000 has an increased layout in comparison with its predecessors. It takes out the effects and loop control section to the center of the mixer. A similar solution has already been used in another top mixer PIONEER – SVM-1000.

At the top is a section of effects, the choice of which is done by buttons (finally, and then to see them in a tiny circular list is sometimes problematic). In the center is the control of the loops. Below is a multi-touch screen.

Can work in several truly cool modes:
With a MIDI layout, a DJ can use external tools (from a computer), use the panel as an instrument similar to Trigger Finger functions from M-Audio.
The MIX-layout offers virtual crossfaders for several frequency bands to make transitions smoother.
Remix-layout transforms the screen into a kind of sensory effector, which packs release Korg (Kaoss Pad series).

Effects and tools.

The effects management has acquired a new dimension. There was a separate effect equalizer, allowing to emphasize the element of the track. A separate effector, called Instant Instrument FX, will help add to the culmination effects of Noise, HPF, LPF, Jet, Zip and Crush

Live sampler

The new feature of the mixer is the ability to record a signal from a microphone or master-output and send it via a LAN cable to the CDJ-2000/900 for scratch.

Pro DJ Link

Finally, this innovation has acquired a concrete practical meaning. The technology allows you to connect the players to each other, to the computer and DJM-2000 mixer through the usual penny-worth network Ethernet cable, which is widely used in the modern world. This allows you to get rid of the hodgepodge of expensive analog and digital wires, and also get access from all devices to a single repository of tracks / CUE points / loops.
The DJM-2000 has 6 such interfaces (4 for the turntables, 2 for the computer) plus the Link Monitor indicator, which displays the status of the connected devices.

Sound quality

The company PIONEER has reported on this field. Apparently the laurels of not the best sound among the mixers did not bother her. The DJM-2000 uses a new hybrid operational amplifier and a balanced analog circuit. The noise decreased to a ratio of 107 dB to the signal, received a non-linear distortion factor of 0.004%.

Connect your laptop and use also its audio for mixing. With a built-in USB four-channel 24-bit sound card, it has never been easier before.

The DJM-2000 uses a balanced output of the amplifier, and its completely discrete structure allows you to adjust the sound quality on each passband. We have achieved the ideal club sound, lowering the sound to the point that it became audible how the sound resonates.

Functionality, connectivity and quality make DJM-2000 the ideal club mixer.
