Pioneer DJ has formally announced their latest and greatest mixer the DJM-2000nexus. The new DJM-2000nexus has features I've never before seen on a DJ mixer and its sure to have DJ's everywhere buzzing for some time to come. The DJM-2000nexus is advertised as the perfect companion for the CDJ-2000nexus and it allows the user to take advantage of the internal Pro DJ Link to share music (Via LAN cables) between up to four Pioneer CDJ's using only one SD card or USB drive. The Pioneer DJM-2000nexus can also connect to up to two different computers (also via LAN cables) to make for easy transitions or for sharing music and files between the whole setup.
The Pro DJ-Link also allows DJ's to use the new Beat-Slice and Sync Master features found on the DJM-2000nexus. The Beat-Slice is just like the slicer that is found on the VCI-380 or the new Pioneer DDJ-SX which basically slices the music from the players into smaller equal parts so they can be mashed together for some cool new mixes. The Sync Master feature lets DJ's set a master player so that the other CDJ's can sync to the correct BPM.
The DJM-2000nexus has a 5.8-inch full-color Multi-Touch display for remixing beats and adding effects by touching the screen. There are four different modes to the touchscreen which are Beat Slice, Frequency Mix, Sidechain Remix and MIDI Mode. These modes are explained in more detail in the press release below. The DJM-2000nexus also has a built-in Live sampler so users can record from the Master output or the Microphone input and immediately playback the recording on a CDJ-2000nexus or CDJ-900.
There's so much more going on under the hood of the DJM-2000nexus that I'd be here all day writing to you about it. The DJM-2000nexus will drop sometime this month for a cool $3,000. I'll work on getting a review unit for a full breakdown. In the meantime, check out the demo video above and also read the press release and the Pioneer website (
