We continue to see growth in the DJ market and the need for creating professional, as well as innovative, digital products¡± said Jason Pook, Product Planning Manager for Pioneer Europe. ¡°Pioneer remains committed to offering the high quality equipment demanded by professional DJs and clubs around the world. The DJM-1000 is an example of that commitment.¡±
Pioneer's heritage in digital technology has been used to create a high-grade digital audio path for the DJM-1000. The mixer has a 24-bit/96kHz digital sampling rate and a 32-bit/96kHz digital sound processor. The DJM-1000's digital input-output signal path allows for transparent signal processing of Pioneer's CDJ and DVJ series of digital decks, ensuring the best possible sound quality.
Analogue input signals are also digitised by a high quality A/D converter and mixed without any deterioration to the audio. The unit has a rigid chassis to minimise vibrations and a high performance power supply to produce clear, powerful sound.
The inclusion of a 3-band Master Isolator allows the user to control the levels from +6dB to - ¡Þ (Kill) dB in each band. It can also be used to attenuate and accent partial bands. A 17 phase fader curve allows adjustment not only of the cross fader curve but also the curves of the channel faders. This enables DJs to customise the feel of the mixer to suit their own personal style.
The DJM-1000 is also designed to integrate easily with the new Pioneer EFX-1000 Effector along with future Pioneer Pro-DJ products. All will share the same high quality sound and can be controlled via digital links to give even greater variety to a DJ's performance.
Unique features and industry firsts included on the DJM-1000 are: A new Sound Link / EFX Link function that is used to control other Pioneer equipment via a link cable. A BPM Synchronise Function that synchronises the BPMs of all attached equipment, i.e. CDJs and an EFX unit. A Visual Link Button used when other visual equipment is connected, which enables control of visual effects and fades with the Pioneer MIDI cross fader.
¡°In complete honesty the DJM - 1000 is the best all round mixer I've ever used. The problem I've had with mixers in the past is that there has never been one that has it all just right for me. The perfect mixer was always a cross between two or three different mixers. What makes a good mixer is a number of things and this has them all. Awesome sound, tank style build, two send and returns for separate FX units which can both be digitally linked and controlled by the cross-fader which also boasts complete curve control. At last someone has made a mixer I'd be happy to use in any situation. Whether it's DVJing, Effecting, Scratching or fluid beat matching this is the all round winner.¡± James Z abiela, DJ.
The bespoke ALPS line faders can be easily changed for rotary versions giving clubs the flexibility to cater for DJs preferences.
