The DDJ-400 is the ideal piece of kit for first-time DJs. Its controls enable you to easily learn the basics, plus it’s packed with features that will help you develop your skills. The controller is compatible with the new Tutorial feature in rekordbox dj, which explains basic equipment operation step by step. Even if you’ve never ventured behind the decks before, you can learn how to DJ.

KEY FEATURES OF THE DDJ-400

Club-style layout
The buttons and knobs on the DDJ-400 are arranged in the same way as those on our club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 set-up. 

Player sections
Get familiar with jog wheels, play/pause and cue buttons, tempo sliders, a loop section and cue/loop call buttons just like the ones on the CDJ-2000NXS2. 
Mixer section
Use the trim and EQ knobs, and the headphone cue buttons, in exactly the same way as those on the DJM-900NXS2.

 *If you want to use it with an iPhone or iPad, you’ll need to make sure you have the appropriate adapter – like a Lightning to USB 3 camera adapter or a USB-C Chroma Cable

DDJ-400 compatible DJ apps and their corresponding devices and streaming services

Do you need a WiFi signal / internet connection to unlock this each time you use it?

I'll be DJ'ing at a festival in a field where there is no WiFi or phone signal. I'm concerned that RecordBox might need to be authorised each time the controller is connected to my iPad.

Thank you.

Nope. I've taken mine outside with laptop to DJ with and it works fine. No internet connection required to unlock the software.

Hi, I'm looking to buy the ddj400 for a youth/dj group. you describe the rekordbox software as FULL and that it's version 5.3, could you tell me if that's the Free, Core or Creative package, how many different devices can use the software and whether this can be transferred between devices as necessary.

As of 17/04/2021 the current version of Rekordbox is 6.5.1 and is free to download from their website. Included with the controller is a "key" for Rekordbox, however, this key is no longer required for Rekordbox and instead the "premium" features are unlocked by the controller itself. (AKA Hardware Unlock).
For a complete list of which controllers offer the hardware unlock and what features they unlock see here: https://rekordbox.com/en/support/link/
You should have no issue using the controller with multiple devices.

Trying to get a mic working with rekordbox and the ddj400. It just wonít recognise one is plugged in and seems to be a common problem with this controller. Are there any special settings I need to change or do you know if this is a bug?

Questions:
1. If I want to record a set, presumably I can do this through separate recording software running on my PC?
2. Is this device compatible with live streaming a set, i.e. on Twitch?
3. Just checking ... can loop intros/outros ... and the loop lenght is fully adjustable?
Thanks

1. The Rekordbox software you get with the controller ( which you download from pioneer) allows you to record upto 3 hrs in the software itself. You can select other routes if you have an external sound card if you prefer via the rca output on the controller.

2.yes see answer 1.

3.yes , loops can be selected in 2 ways. 1 via the manual loop at the top left of either plate or 2 providing your tracks have been properly analysed (which sometimes means going in and manually selecting your first beat point) you can select auto loops via the beat loop function and using the pads at the bottom of each plate.

I have recently sold a ddj 200 and upgraded to a ddj 400, its currently on back order, my question is will the ddj 200 just work for the new person ive sold it too if they install rekordbox 6 on their laptop and will it unlock perf mode for them?

Also on the ddj 400, when i do receive it and plug into my existing rekordbox 6, will that just unlock perf mode, will i have to change anything in the mypage section.
Thanks

Hi. Iím considering one of these controllers. I always djíd with vinyls and cdjs
Couple of questions
I would need suitable laptop to store my music?
I canít run this through a hard drive or usb. I can also run an iPad with music on it ? And also Spotify premium
It mentions a licence for rekordbox. If I install on a
Laptop then change the laptop. Do I need to buy another licence?

Sorry for the question

Hi

The best way to use this controller is with either a laptop or tablet using digital music libraries. . The controller comes with a free licence to use Rekord box software. If you intend to use an IPad or tablet , you will need specialised USB adaptors to power and communicate with the controller. The laptop will is the standard USB port.
Finally , the Rekord box software will integrate with Spotify , Apple Music and other music streaming services

Hope this helps

Justin

Hi Chaps,

Do all the relevant cables and wires come for this mixer? All will I need to Order separately? If so can I be pointed in the direction of the correct wires please

And can I connect my phone to mixer?

Thanks!

Hey Connor

It comes with what you need to get started. A USB cable to link to your PC/Macbook, power cable and a copy of rekordbox DJ (with a license for you to install it).

That would mean you'd be using your PC/Macbook speakers for the output audio and your headphones for the pre-mix.

If you wanted to pump the music elsewhere, e.g. through some active speakers, you would need to buy the cable separately.

As for your iPhone (or iPad), you can use Algoriddimís djay app for iOS and djay Pro for PC/Mac Ė which all link to Spotify Premium, so you can play and mix any track from Spotify. The app and Spotify are an extra cost though.

I hope that helps.

Upgrading from the DDJ 200 but still not overly confident , for a safety net does the DDJ 400 have transition fix (phase sync) ?

Can this set up be connected to my technics turntables ?

Not really, no. It designed to connect to your laptop / MacBook by USB and is then a controller for mixing your virtual software decks. The only other input is a phone for a microphone, which in theory you could put a turntable through, but you cannot use any of the features with the mic input (so you couldn't crossfade to it, for example). If you want to use your desks as well as your laptop, you'd need to look at the DDJ-800 but that is quite a jump in money, unfortunately.

Superb Build quality

I just canít get over how good the build quality is. Having owned many of the more expensive pioneers mixers and controllers over the years, I expect these to be flimsy or slightly toy like. Wow to my surprise, these feel fantastic. Theres resistance on the knobs and buttons, and the up faders. Cross fader feels very nice. Jogs sides are plastic but they very feel nice. The unit has a textured finish to it, and itís small enough to fit on my mouse mat surface. Only phono outputs but you can just buy an adapter. My delivery came next day on a Saturday 2 days before it was due djkit.com use DPD, the only delivery company that actually does a great job. Drivers are always wearing a mask and are respectful. Thanks djkit.com!

Clever bit of kit

Tbh I bought this as a bit of fun. I had been a DJ back in the 70s/80s and missed it thinking I could do so much better than some of the people claiming to be DJs, but I emphasise I had no intention of working professionally/commercially. It really is a clever bit of kit and hats off to anyone who has mastered all of it's capabilities. Most tutorials seem to focus on Electronic Dance Music, which is fine, but not where I am and in my view all the wizardry in the world is no substitute for knowing your music and being able to assess your audience. My problems, if I have, any are more with rekordbox which comes with it. If I was doing this commercially I would deffo buy a more powerful Laptop as it can take me an age to load. For info this kept crashing when I loaded an older version on a 32 bit machine, I think it was the USB interface but effectively the decks kept disappearing from the laptop, the tracks remained Would I recommend if you have £400 quid spare or you already have speakers then go for it, it's great fun

Great bit of kit

First I would like to say thank you to djkit.com for this as it was a prize in the advent calendar prize giveaway. Now the unit itself, what a great bit of kit. I normally a vinyl DJ so didnít think I would get on with it, but after a couple of hours i was well away, love the portability of it to as just been to a 3 night live music weekend at a well known holiday camp, and this was great to carry on the party.
