Setup & First Impressions

The new Denon DJ MC4000 controller comes bundled with Serato DJ, has a great metal chassis, two microphone inputs for Mobile DJ's, and a compact footprint to easily transport and store when taking it on the go. The MC4000 is great for Mobile DJ's as its compatible with Serato DJ, VirtualDJ 8, Algoriddim, and Traktor 2.9!

The Denon MC4000 controller sits nicely between the MC2000 and MC6000 in terms of features and usability. The MC4000 is a step up from the really small MC2000 and offers more controls for the software. The MC4000 doesn't quite have all of the analog inputs and outputs found on the MC6000, but many DJ's don't need the extra connectivity. The Denon MC4000 fills the gap between both controllers nicely and with a $399 pricepoint, it makes financial sense for those who want the best of both worlds. Check out our full video review above for a detailed look at the MC4000.

Pros

  • Purposely Built for Working Mobile DJs
  • Good/Reliable Build Quality
  • Compatible with Many DJ Software (Bundled w/Serato DJ Intro)
  • 2 Microphone Inputs with EQ & Echo

Cons

  • No Bells & Whistles like slicer, slip mode, etc

Denon DJ MC3000 Controller Announced

A few months ago, we brought you the full video review of the Denon DN-MC6000 four-deck Digital DJ Controller and now Denon DJ has unveiled the new compact version of their controller called the MC3000. The Denon DJ MC3000 looks and feels exactly like the DN-MC6000 using the same all-steel chassis and high-resolution jog wheels, but it is in an even more compact body since there are a few less controls and visible channels to worry about. The MC3000 still works as a four-deck controller even though only two are visible at a time. Check the full press release and pricing information after the jump.
