Pioneer unveils the CDJ - 900 Nexus

The evolution of Pioneer’s premium NXS lineup continues, with the addition of the CDJ-900NXS digital player. The latest player builds on the success of its predecessor, the CDJ-900, plus it’s packed with new technology including a full colour LCD screen, Beat Divide, four-deck Beat Sync. The CDJ-900NXS comes with Pioneer rekordbox™ music management software for PC/Mac and a free download of rekordbox app for smartphones and tablets. DJs can then prepare amazing sets and playlists wherever they are, and load them onto the CDJ-900NXS via USB or Wi-Fi*1. The Pro DJ Link enables DJs to share one source with up to four decks via LAN cable.

The CDJ-900NXS boasts Pioneer’s highest resolution screen yet, giving DJs a quick and instant view of the Wave Display and Wave Zoom and the ability to view and edit rekordbox beatgrids. Like the top-flight CDJ-2000NXS, the CDJ-900NXS features even more intuitive browsing with the option to see tracks in list, artwork and custom views. Plus mixing tools such as Beat Countdown and Phase Meter can be pre-set in rekordbox for easy viewing during performance. The old Auto Beat Loop section has been replaced by the more intuitive Beat Divide buttons, which enable DJs to slice up the beat and roll it around in a loop. Beat Divide can be incorporated with Slip Mode to enter Slip Loop – so the track instantly comes back in at the right place when DJs release the Beat Divide button.

Other features inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS include a four-deck Beat Sync, to automatically sync the BPM of tracks to the master deck, and a dedicated Quantize button, for instant access to Quantized loops, cue and effects. Add to that Active Loop, My Settings, harmonic Key Analysis Indicator, and the stylish, robust build expected of Pioneer pro-DJ products, and the CDJ-900NXS is a performance force of nature.
