Could this the perfect item for life on the move as a DJ, the new Pioneer DDJ-800 a 2 channel midi controller designed for the industry standard DJ software Rekordbox . The Controller inherits the DNA from the now legendary DDJ-1000 its bigger brother in the line up. What pioneer have done here is keep their club standard layout and squeezed it in to a smaller controller without making it feel cramped. The DDJ-800 will be perfect for the DJ that wants to just mix 2 tracks but still have a huge amount of performance features . So if 4 channels mixing is not your thing this has got to a brilliant solution.
The DDJ-800 does boast some new features of which one is the new feedback reducer a feature to be found in the latest version of Recordbox and this is the controller to utilise this feature and will assist the DJ using a microphone to avoid those horrid feedback noises. Also the Jog wheels on this controller have 2 mode , mode 1 will display important track play information like wave form, cue points, time and BPM info. The 2nd mode will be able to display track artwork.
The DDJ-800 maybe a cut down version of its big brother the DDJ-1000, but the connectivity on the unit is certainly not lacking at all. With master out on XLR AND RCA, a booth out on TRS 1/4inch jack. Microphone on a XLR/JACK combi connector. And if you want to add decks or CDJs to the system, the DDJ-800 boasts line/phono inputs on 2 channels on RCA and of course grounding for vinyl decks . And last but not least a handing AUX input on RCA . When it come to the connectivity we feel the DDJ-800 has it covered.
The DDJ-800 is also the 1st unit that Pioneer DJ have made that will not need a licence key for Rekordbox as soon as the controller is connected Rekordbox DJ Performance mode is activated. But the controller does come with a licence code in the box. The ddj-800 is DVS ready but does not come with a DVS licence.
Here a Phase One DJ store we felt there was a controller missing in the line up of the brilliant DDJ range and DDJ-800 plugs the gap perfectly, bring a professional controller to a new lower price level for those DJs that don’t really want to mix 4 decks , but still want a creative tool at their disposal .
