Pioneer DJ division has just announced their newest DJ mixer in the professional "DJM" line dubbed the Pioneer DJM-750. This new four-channel mixer has a built in 4-in/4-out USB soundcard and a host of effects options such as the brand new Boost Color FX, the Sound Color FX, and the Beat FX which can be combined to create over 100 types of effects for even more creative options.
The Pioneer DJM-750 reminds me of a trimmed down DJM-850 with the same internal 4-in/4-out soundcard and similar layout and design. Check out our
for reference. The DJM-750 does not have the same Traktor Scratch Certification as the DJM-850, so its likely (to me anyway) that Traktor will start focusing on their own mixer lineup going forward (Traktor Kontrol Z4?). The DJM-750 should still be capable of DVS timecode playback on other DJ software and the mixer also sends all MIDI data to the computer via USB. The DJM-750 also only has one Sound Color FX knob while the DJM-850 has a knob for each individual channel.
The DJM-750 does have the new Boost Color FX which enables users to change the parameter of an effect with the varying rotation speed of the integrated controller knob. The degree of the selected effect is intensified (i.e. increase cut rate) the faster the knob is turned. The DJM-750 also has all of the Beat Effects found on the 850 and the Sound Color FX can be combined to create over 100 different effects for the DJ to remix with.
The Pioneer DJM-750 will be available in June in black (DJM-750-K) or silver (DJM-750-S) for the retail price of about $1200. Check out the press release below and stay tuned as we'll definitely get one in the DJbooth.net lab for the full video and written review treatment.
