The Pioneer CDJ400 Designed by DJ's for DJ's and drawing inspiration from Pioneer's industry standard CDJ-1000 series, this latest member of the world-famous CDJ family is fully geared up to serve the next generation of digital artists. The Pioneer CDJ400 allows DJ s to play their MP3 collection off CD-R/RW discs as well as music from mass storage USB devices, such as USB keys, external hard drives and portable media devices [1]. The deck also features the world's first Scratch Jog Effects [2], with three creative scratch effects and an amazing new Loop Divide function. Virtually all of the button and slider functions can send MIDI data via USB output, making it possible for the decks to control DJ software and other applications, such as Pioneer DJS [3] or Serato Scratch LIVE [4] on a PC or MAC. The Pioneer CDJ400 deck is a perfect partner for the DJM-400 mixer and together they provide the ultimate home party set-up.

CDJ400 Review

Aimed at aspiring club DJs to use at home, the Pioneer CDJ-400 will play standard audio CDs as well as MP3s off CD-R/RW discs, but not DVDs. It will also play music directly from mass storage USB devices such as USB keys and external hard drives. Of course, like any gadget worth its salt these days, the CDJ-400 works fully with an iPod. With a price tag of 449 (or 888.99 for a pair) the CDJ-400 is certainly not cheap, but what really sets it apart from other sub-500 DJ decks is its PC mode. When connected via USB to a PC or Mac, practically all of the deck's button and slider functions can be sent as MIDI data to control DJ mixing software such as Pioneer's DJS or Serato Scratch LIVE. The CDJ-400 will also act as a USB sound device with both analogue and digital outputs, so you won't need a separate sound card to connect up to your DJ mixer. Unfortunately, software support for the CDJ-400 isn't currently available but Pioneer inform us that the new compatible version of its own DJS software will be out in January 2008 - at an extra cost - closely followed by an update to Serato Scratch LIVE later in the year. So for this review I'll be focusing on the Pioneer's CD and MP3 playing capabilities.
