|At Plasa 2003 Pioneer Pro DJ released of two 2-channel DJ mixers to complement Pioneer's CDJ-1000 and CDJ-800 CD Digital Decks. The DJM-909 and DJM-707 offer precise cross fader/fade curve control, user-customizable cross fader glide adjustment and touch screen control of the built-in effects (DJM-909).
Pioneer has created two new battle / performance DJ mixers that match Pioneer's CDJ Digital Decks in both form and function. The DJM-909 and DJM-707 sport sensitive yet solid gripping EQ knobs, durable transform switches and precise and accurate cross fader curve control. Pioneer has developed an original 'non-contact' cross fader technology to ensure durability and reliability.
The most important feature on any battle mixer is its cross fader and fader performance. Pioneer's DJM-909 and DJM-707 introduce a highly durable cross fader which has double fade control allowing each half of the cross fader the ability to be adjusted independently.
On the DJM-909 all fader curves can also be seen and adjusted with visual reference on fader curve adjust screen. The cross fader feel can also be adjusted to your preference. Each channel fader curve can be adjusted from a smooth volume change to a dynamic volume on/off at the tip of the channel faders (bottom or top).
Both mixers can connect with Pioneer's CDJ series to employ the fader start capability. The user can automatically start or stop playback by the sliding cross-fader or channel-fader.
Both the DJM-909 and DJM-707 are similar in layout although the DJM-909 boasts built-in effects and a touch sensitive display. Both mixers also offer a very clean, open fader area for scratching and beat juggling. Both mixers have a session line-in with volume control, cueable master output, mic input, and selectable phono / line switches. In addition, the DJM-909 has a tempo tap button, cueable effects switch, and a plug in for foot switch to control effects.
Pioneer's DJM-909 and DJM-707 were designed with scratch DJs, the studio / production DJs and the Turntablist in mind, however they are also excellent units for all DJs wanting to improve their performance level.
