The Pioneer DDJ-800 DJ Controller is a compact and powerful performance controller designed for rekordbox DJ. With 2 channels and all the professional performance capability, you expect from Pioneer the DDJ-800 will enable you to perform at clubs, parties, weddings and anywhere else thanks to its wealth of features all housed in a lightweight body.
Club Standard Layout
The Pioneer DDJ-800 features the same layout found on Pioneer's club-standard setups. All the buttons and faders are where you'd expect to find them making this controller just as intuitive for the Pro DJ as it is for the Hobby DJ. Armed with Pioneer's 'Feeling Adjust' feature you can set the resistance on the jog wheels to your preferred weight for scratching and spicing up your sets with the built-in Sound Color FX and Beat FX from Pioneer's DJM mixer series.
Color On Jog Display
The DDJ-800 features a pair of high definition LCD screens showing a variety of information such as playback time, BPM and waveforms in the middle of the jog wheel. Cue Scope tells you the distance in bars from your current playback position to Hot Cue points and Loop points, enabling you to mix quickly and accurately. The display also lets you instantly reference the name and BPM of your track or FX without having to look up at your PC/Mac allowing as well as utilising the built-in FX whenever inspiration strikes you.
Audio Mixer, Feedback Reducer
More than just a controller, you can use the DDJ-800 as a mixer, controlling the volume of an audio input from an external device by adjusting the trims, channel faders and EQ. When the controller is connected to rekordbox dj you can also use Sound Color FX and Beat FX making for one seriously versatile piece of kit. The DDJ-800 is also the first Pioneer controller to support the Feedback Reducer feature in rekordbox dj, letting you pass the mic around without the fear of screeching frequency feedback. This feature instantly detects the frequency of feedback and silences it, so alongside the two independent mic inputs you get incredible ease of use when using MCs or guest speakers.
Alongside all these fantastic features the Pioneer DDJ-800 also has 16 tactile illuminated rubber pads (8 per deck) to trigger Hot Cues, Pad FX, Beat Jump, Sampler, Keyboard mode and more. The Advanced Super Fast Search lets you quickly reach any playback position and the Page feature gives you the ability to switch between Hot Cues A-H and I-P. Dedicated buttons for Key Shift and Key Sync let you take direct control of rekordbox dj key-related features, giving you complete control over the mix.
The Pioneer DDJ-800 DJ Controller is an incredible piece of kit, feature packed and housed in a lightweight, portable body to let you take your mixes anywhere. The intuitive display will make this a hit with new and veteran DJs alike and it's connectivity options make it versatile enough for a host of applications, so whether you're hitting the club or DJing a wedding on the weekend this controller will allow you to mix masterfully.
