Pioneer DJ drop an early Easter present…
Anticipated by some but still a welcome addition to the family, the Pioneer DJ DDJ-800 DJ Controller, professional kit that boasts rekordbox dj (license included) so that you’re ready to go straight out of the box. Whether you’re practising your skills at home, laying it down at a house party or taking to the stage, Pioneer DJ pour years of know-how into this little beauty to equip you with everything needed to DJ on the move.
Familiar and intuitive layout
From top to bottom the DDJ-800 is bursting with features and happily plays well with others. Thankfully, by borrowing the control layout from the DDJ-1000 it is delightfully easy to keep on top of everything as you perform. At the centre of each jog wheel you’ll find all the visual info you need thanks to the Colour On Jog Display, with up to 14 Beat FX, 16 Performance Pads, and 4 Sound Colour FX thrown in for good measure. Tailoring and tempering your mix is a joy and encourages you to let loose and push those boundaries.
The DDJ-800 makes the most of the compatible Feedback Reducer in rekordbox dj, preventing the worst from happening should your MCs wander too close to the in-house monitors/speakers. Notice we wrote “MCs” – that’s correct, there are two mic connections for you to take advantage of.
Whether you’re going independent or want to integrate external audio sources, there are connections aplenty to ensure that the DDJ-800 can sit at the heart of the most elaborate of setups.
