DDJ-800

Pioneer DJ has announced the widely anticipated DDJ-800, a new two-channel controller for its Rekordbox DJ software. The new system is geared to sit between the entry-level DDJ-400 and the more advanced DDJ-1000.

Pioneer DJ has announced the widely anticipated DDJ-800, which features two channels and jog wheel displays.

In terms of design, the DDJ-800 has taken many keys from its big brother, the DDJ-1000. This is largely because the layout of both units are intended to emulate that of Pioneer DJ’s Nexus CDJ series which remain the ‘club standard’ for most venues. The biggest discernible difference between these controllers is obviously the size and the fact that the DDJ-800 has two channels rather than four.

The DDJ-800 comes with a ‘Colour On Jog Display’ that displays BPM, waveforms, artwork and other details which clearly puts it ahead of the entry-level DDJ-400. The new system also features 14 Beat FX, 16 Performance Pads and 4 Sound Color FX.

A unique addition is a built-in feedback reducer, which eliminates ‘howling’ microphone frequencies. The controller also includes extra inputs so you can plug turntables or CDJs into the mixer.

Pioneer DJ has clearly thought a lot about portability for the gigging DJ, even including a protective carry bag. “The DDJ-800 is the perfect controller for those who love to travel. It comes packed with features and the ability to integrate into bigger club setups.”
