Pioneer DJM-850 Product Description
Pioneer DJM-850 Mixer with Serato DJ / Traktor certified sound card
Pioneer’s DJM-850 is an innovative, durable piece of gear. With inherited features from Pioneer’s club-standard mixers alongside exciting new feature installations of its own, the DJM-850 is one of the best products for its price point.
The Pioneer DJM-850 retains the familiar, club standard layout that Pioneer is so renowned for, allowing DJs to play with comfort and intuition. As the internal parts have been fitted deep inside of the gear, the Pioneer DJM-850 is also incredibly durable, this enables DJs to mix in comfort, safe in the knowledge that an unfortunate drink spillage or unruly fist pump will not ruin their kit or their set.
Pioneer has also fitted the DJM-850 with a four stereo channel 24-bit/96kHZ sound card, which provides sound precision and professional quality even at the loudest of club volumes. This also means that software DJs can integrate many devices within their mixes, using only one simple USB cable.
A brilliant and innovative new feature of the Pioneer DJM-850 is the new Beat Colour FX. An industry first, this feature modulates the different effects and keeps them in time with your tracks. The DJM-850 features the old favourite Colour FX; Crush, Noise, Filter and Gate whilst the new Beat feature adds an exciting and creative new spin to your mixes.
Pioneer DJ has also improved the Beat effects in the Pioneer DJM-850 with the new FX BOOST. This mixer offers DJs 13 enhanced beat effects, alongside old favourites. Taking inspiration from the DJM-900 Nexus touch-sensitive X-Pad, the DJM-850 replicates the fantastic quality of sound effects through the FX Boost function which allows the level/depth knob to work more proactively than the standard wet/dry control. The new FX Boost means that the DJM-850 can easily be used by hardware DJs, as well as software DJs.
An exciting, additional upgrade available with the Pioneer DJM-850 is the new plug-and-play support, a feature of the Serato DJ Club Kit upgrade. The DJM-850 comes upgrade ready for the Serato DJ software, enabling DJs to connect via USB, no need for an external soundcard.
DJkit considers Pioneer’s DJM-850 a fantastic piece of kit. Not only does it have innovative FX features, but it also retains the club-standard layout and quality of Pioneer’s industry-standard mixers, making it the perfect mix of old and new.
Pioneer DJM-850 Bundles
Variety of Effects The DJM-850 follows Pioneer's traditional mixer layout, featuring a variety of advanced sound effects that provide DJs with virtually limitless possibilities when mixing their music. Pioneer includes a new BEAT COLOR FX function, which changes effects by linking the audio input from each channel.
Sound Color FX – The Sound Color FX offers four types of effects (Filter, Crush, Noise and Gate) that can be linked to the input sound of each channel. Beat Color FX – Users can quickly change between the new Beat Color FX and Sound Color FX to suit each tune for further remixing and sound capabilities. By activating the Beat Color FX, users are able to manipulate the Sound Color FX and Beat Effect simultaneously, resulting in more creative effects that complement the beat of the music.
Beat Effect – The Beat Effect function presents 13 different types of effects (Delay, Echo, Up Echo , Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Filter, Flanger, Phaser, Robot, Slip Roll, Roll, and Reverse Roll) that can be combined to produce up to 100 other original effects.
The design of the DJM-850 combines broad functionality and high quality components to achieve great sound quality:
24bit/96kHz Built-in USB Sound Card – An integrated high performance USB sound card enables up to four inputs/outputs2simultaneously with no deterioration in sound quality. The sound card supports three different sampling rates (96kHz/48kHz/44.1kHz) and the ASIO/Core Audio standards that can also be used for music recording and production.
The USB port on top of the mixer provides quick connections to use DJ software via laptop. The signal output path from the mixer can be easily modified using its setup utility tool3 via a computer. Sound Quality – The use of high quality components such as a 32-bit digital-to-analog output converter and a 32-bit digital signal processor, separate analog and digital circuitry, and extremely short audio transmission paths results in clear and powerful audio output.
TRAKTOR SCRATCH 2 Certified4
The DJM-850 offers compatibility to the Scratch Control (DVS)with Native Instrument's TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2/DUO 2 software. Using the timecode disc bundled with the software and a PC, the DJM-850 is ready for scratch control (DVS) with a CDJ player or Vinyl turntable.
The DJM-850 is equipped with additional features that add to the versatility of the mixer:
MIDI Signal - Operation information of the mixer's knobs and buttons can be transmitted as a MIDI signal5 for a "Full Ensemble MIDI" function to control other connected devices. Switching 3-Band EQ/Isolator – Each channel of the mixer is equipped with a switchable 3-band EQ (+6dB to -26dB) and 3-band isolator (+6dB to -∞dB)
High Performance Channel Faders - The slide mechanism supports the fader knobs with two metal shafts for both durability and smooth operation. Furthermore, the new mechanism's design minimizes the negative effects of moisture and dust particles on the mixer's performance. P-LOCK Fader Cap - Keeps the fader channel and crossfader knobs (caps) locked, preventing them from physically slipping off during heavy use. Scratch Control - Scratch control6 is possible by using the time code disc7 bundled with DJ software supporting DVS (Digital Vinyl System)8 from CDJ players and vinyl turntables.
Auto Standby - Automatically senses active operation and the presence of input signals, switching to standby mode when inputs are not detected for a long period.
The DJM-850 will be available in black or silver colors in March 2012
