Pioneer releases its new CDJ-350 and DJM-350 Combo for DJs in Japan
Already announced last march in the UK but unfortunately not yet available there, Pioneer new DJ CD player CDJ-350 and 2 Channel DJ Mixer DJM-350 are now available in Japan.
Offering something completely new and unique at this price point, the DJM-350 enables you to capture every last nuance of your performance to high quality recording on USB. There’s no need for extra kit or wires, it all works inside the box. Simply plug in a USB memory device into the mixer and you’re able to record professional uncompressed audio into WAV format.
Split the recording as you mix
This could be anything from a carefully crafted mix, or for recording vinyl, ready to be played back digitally on the CDJ-350. And the coolest feature has got to be the ability to split the recording as you mix by hitting the ‘Track Mark’ button providing beautifully indexed mixes ready for burning to CD without needing to make a single edit.
Drag and drop the files into our new rekordbox™ music management software, and all your music will be automatically primed with beatgrids to take advantage of the CDJ-350’s beat-keeping tools.
Prepare and plug in
Being a top performer is often down to serious preparation and the new CDJ-350 comes to life when you plug in your carefully prepared rekordbox™ digital music library. In fact, the CDJ-350 is the perfect stepping stone for DJs looking to break the club circuit as all the work put into preparing a killer music library and playlists will all work on the industry standard CDJ-900 and CDJ-2000 digital decks. If you’re ready to rock the party on the CDJ-350s, you’ll be one step ahead of the rest when it comes to playing in the clubs.
MIDI functionality and effects
Music enthusiasts and DJs making their way to the top will be glad to find a USB connection on the CDJ-350 allowing MIDI controller functionality with compatible DJ software or for use as an audio interface.
We manage to push the boundaries on the DJM-350 which features four subtle yet powerful effects that help you build energy into the music without overpowering the mix. All of this accessed from a single two-directional dial.
Twist the Gate effect to the left to tighten up the high frequency of the track, and to the right to tighten up the bass. You’ll also find filters combined with Bitcrushers, and a manual Jet effect that puts you in direct control of this well loved effect for the first time. And to top it all off it has a gorgeous sounding high and low-pass filter, just like the DJM-800.
