The Pioneer DJM800 mixer is the new professional-grade mixer. Pure fidelity is delivered by the hi-end 96kHz/24 bit A/D converter that's complemented by 61 assignable MIDI control channels and 'Harmonic Mixing' capability. This is a landmark innovation, that detects a track's key and automatically aligns it to the closest true key, removing inaccuracies created when adjusting the pitch. With digital connectivity, a large bright dot matrix display and a wide a range of high quality effects, the Pioneer DJM800 enables DJs to perfect pristine mixing.
'We're dedicated to finding new ways to improve the techniques available to DJs to create sensational sets: we achieved it with CD mixing and the genre-defining A/V deck, the DVJ-X1. And we've achieved it again with the Pioneer DJM800 mixer.
It offers superlative digital performance, huge MIDI versatility and a new approach to harmonic mixing that replicates the way that DJs intuitively mix music. The innovation, combined with the unit's sonic purity and a range of supporting features will advance mixing techniques. It's the type of breakthrough that clubs, professional DJs and the emerging generation of artists expect from Pioneer,' comments Jason Pook, product planning manager, Pioneer Europe.
Sonic purity is a given from Pioneer and the DJM800 mixer inherits the high fidelity technology of its big brother the DJM1000. The analogue signal from the player is immediately digitised (through the shortest possible route) by a pro A/D converter at 96kHz/24bit, reaching the ultra-powerful (32bit) Digital Signal Processor without deterioration of quality.
