Pioneer DJ unleashes the CDJ-3000, the powerful, innovative and high functioning flagship multi-player. It boasts an all-new Micro-Processing Unit (MPU) which features ultra-quality components and an unprecedented number of functions that allow for ultimate creativity.

Pioneers Most Advanced Multiplayer

The CDJ3000s have been designed to withstand anything that is thrown at them creativity wise. It is the first CDJ to incorporate an MPU. It works by driving the unit so that it provides stable performance, along with enabling the advanced features to work seamlessly with other sections of the player to give a delightfully smooth DJ experience. An example of this would be noticing how fast tracks and Hot Cues load.

Advanced Audio Playback

Audio playback within the multi player is top-notch, thanks to the brand-new audio design where clarity and rich-detail are essential. Pioneer has poured 25 years’ worth of experience into creating equipment that produces exceptional sound quality and reproduction. The CDJ-3000 has a processing speed of 96 kHz/32-bit, and all audio playback formats are supported. Sound reproduction is extremely clear and precise, and with the aid of advanced audio processing technology, a more realistic representation of spatial and musical bass sound is produced compared to any other multiplayer, within the Pioneer DJ range, has ever made.

Enhanced Top Plate Layout

The enhanced layout “lets you play the CDJ 3000 like it’s a musical instrument” Pioneer DJ say. The design includes eight Hot Cue buttons, intuitively situated under the waveform display, Dedicated Beat Jump buttons, Key Sync and a new 8-Beat Loop button, in addition to the 4-Beat control. The top plate is made using high-quality aluminium, and the play, cue and Hot Cue buttons have been redesigned, making them more robust than ever. The unit comes with a quality digital cable and a lockable V-Lock power cable that ensures there are no accidental interruptions.

Flexible Performance Options

There are flexible performance options, in that rekordbox analysed tracks can be played from USB drives using Export Mode. Alternatively, Link Export or Performance Mode can be used when connecting a laptop with USB-HID control. The player is a rekordbox Hardware Unlock device, so in order to use performance mode update to the most recent version of the software. This allows tracks to be played directly from the rekordbox library, including any from streaming services (SoundCloud Go+, Beatport or Beatsource LINK). Audio files can be played and shared from USB devices and SD cards thanks to the Pro DJ Link with Gigabit Ethernet. It is also worth mentioning that an iPhone can be connected via a USB cable and used to mix music directly from rekordbox, iOS version, where it supports several file types including MP3 AAC, WAV, FLAC, ALAC and AIFF.

The Ever-Evolving CDJ

The CDJ has significantly evolved since Pioneer first graced the world in 1994 with the CDJ-500, and despite the CDJ 3000 being extremely different, the core values remain the same. That is to provide the user with an intuitive, good feeling interface that delivers the power to modify the music in any way that can be thought of, or ever even imagined.

Music development is ever-evolving, and this has been shown through the players over the years. It started with a flat-top CD DJ Player (CDJ-500 world first), moved to enhanced performance techniques (CDJ-1000), the introduction of rekordbox and Pro DJ Link (CDJ-2000), followed by Wave Displays, Beat Sync, digital music files, and last but not least the industry-leading CDJ-2000NXS2, a firm favourite amongst clubs, festivals and DJs worldwide. Now with the introduction of the CDJ-3000, it firmly represents Pioneer DJ continuing to be a revolutionary brand within the industry.

Advanced MPU

The new MPU not only drives the CDJ but ensures it runs more smoothly and increases its stability. The MPU is powerful, which means more features and functions can be introduced and can run at their optimum performance level.

Pro DJ Link with Gigabit Ethernet

Audio files can now be shared and played on up to six CDJ-3000 units from USB devices and SD cards when syncing them with a six-channel mixer (e.g. DJM-V10), thanks to the Gigabit Ethernet connection for Pro DJ Link. There is also a lighting feature available that is connected to Pro DJ Link where sounds can be synchronised with lights. The media player can send phrase analysis information to rekordbox, which means the lighting effects can be controlled using an RB-DMX1 remote which is available separately.

New and Improved Touchscreen Display

The super 9-inch high-resolution touch-screen display features all the information and functions you require and more. Extra information has been added, along with shortcuts, and more buttons for the more frequently used categories and functions, such as Search and Playlist. This is to ensure easy accessibility and time-saving.
The Graphic User Interface (GUI) has a familiar feel to it, primarily if you have used the CDJ-2000NXS2. However, now there is the ability to set the information you want to have displayed, along with other preferences, including text size.

The touchscreen is super responsive and can use a swiping action to navigate. As a result, the user has an entirely customisable device which saves time, provides excellent flexibility and intuitive workflow.

The 9-inch touch screen display has had its maximum brightness improved by over 150% when compared to its predecessor. This increase in flexibility is ideal for users to ensure visibility can easily be adapted to the environment they are playing in.

Several new features have been added to aid in track selection including:

Stacked Waveform – on one screen there is an enlarged waveform of the track on the master player, along with the one you want to cue up. There is the ability to identify mix points, and visually check that the beat grids are lined up perfectly.

Touch Preview – listen to any part of a track by tapping on the waveform in the right place, within the browse section. Here you can preview tracks from connected players using the Link Cue mode.

Touch Cue – listen to any part of the track that is currently playing by tapping the waveform, without the audience noticing. This feature is useful when handing over to another DJ or back-to-back sets. Again, Link Cue allows listening to different parts of a track that another DJ is currently playing on a separate CDJ3000.

3Band Waveform Support – Provides the ability to understand how a track sounds without listening to it. Different colours are used to identify the volume of each frequency band in files that have been analysed by rekordbox. As a result, the composition of the music can be seen by looking at the waveform. This feature is in addition to RGB and Blue options.

Key Sync and Key Shift

The Key Sync automatically adjusts the key of the track that is incoming to ensure that it matches the one that is playing on the master deck, creating a smooth transition. The Key Shift feature is available on the touchscreen and means the user can manually shift the key of a track up or down.

Enhanced Layout

The top plate is made from high-quality aluminium, and the Hot Cue, Play and Cue buttons have been redesigned, making them stronger than they have ever been. The arrangement is such that it allows the CDJ to be played like it is a musical instrument.

Eight Hots Cue Buttons – the eight robust buttons are conveniently and intuitively located under the waveform display and are used to trigger Hot Cues. Their positioning makes selecting cue points according to the position in the track more natural.

Dedicated Beat Jump Buttons – The buttons allow the user to jump forward or backwards from the current playback position within the track. The quantised number of beats can be set to a value of ½, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64 beats.

Auto Beat Loop section – In addition to the 4-Beat Loop control, the CDJ-3000 includes an 8-Beat Loop button which allows for advanced creativity. Sounds can be looped on the go by using the expanded options for odd-numbered loops and polyrhythmic loops.
A V-Lock power cable is included which protects against accidental interruptions or disconnections. The console also comes with a quality digital cable that is easy to manoeuvre and ideal for use in professional setups or clubs.

Redesigned Jog Wheel

The mechanism inside the jog wheel has been redesigned, making it feel a lot sleeker. The latency has been reduced by half when compared to the NXS2. The handy little high-resolution screen display in the centre of the wheel is perfect for displaying vital track information at a glance.
Flexible Performance Options

Rekordbox analysed music can be played from sources such as USB drives using the Export mode, or through connecting a laptop with USB-HID control and using Link Export or Performance Mode. The player is a Hardware Unlock Device which means Performance Mode can be used for free, and all tracks from a rekordbox library can be played including any from a streaming service such as SoundCloud Go+, Beatport or Beatsource.

There is even the option to connect an iPhone through a USB cable and mix music directly from the iOS version of rekordbox. This supports several file types including MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, ALAC and AIFF. There will be news on official support for the use of Serato DJ Pro in the coming months.

CDJ-3000 now supports djay PRO AI for Mac

CDJ-3000 now supports djay PRO AI for Mac

The CDJ-3000, Pioneer's flagship multiplayer, is now fully compatible with Algoriddim's DJ programme, djay PRO AI for Mac, via the USB-HID*1 control feature.

When djay PRO AI is running on a Mac connected to the multi-player, you can now browse playlists and catalogues of streaming services linked to the software on the screen of the CDJ-3000. The CDJ-3000's advanced interface lets you manipulate scratching, loops, Hot Cues, and more.

You'll need a licence for djay PRO AI for Mac in order to use it with the CDJ-3000.

Learn how to use 3Band Waveform and Stacked Waveform

New and improved, the 3 Band Waveform feature on the CDJ-3000's has built on the iconic classic blue and RGB indicators found on Pioneer's CDJ-2000NXS2. 3 Band Waveform splits the frequencies into high, mid, and low frequencies that are assigned to their respective colour, allowing for more outstanding operability and quick adjustment to be made on the go as you can quickly recognise each frequency from the colour.

  • Blue = Low frequencies
  • Amber = Mid frequencies
  • White = High frequencies

Using the Stacked waveform view allows you to see the waveform of the track you're cueing next to the master, which will enable you to easily beat match and make sure your mix is in phase.


The CDJ-3000 features an all-new cueing feature called Link Cue. Connect your CDJ to any compatible mixer to unlock the full power of this feature. Touch Preview lets you listen to tracks in your library without having to load them onto your CDJ, allowing you to plan and select your mix more carefully on the fly.

Touch Cue will enable you to preview certain parts of the track currently selected and playing through the CDJ without interrupting your mix.

Learn how to use and customize the browse section

An enlarged 9-inch touch screen on the CDJ-3000 allows for more information to be delivered and read, making it easier to see what you are cueing or browsing through compared to the CDJ-2000NXS2.

Visualise the new 3 Band Waveform on the 9-inch display, full-sized tracklist and browse function, track artwork and covers, as well as BPM and other critical information available within the compact screen. Adjust the settings to work with you; text size, screen brightness, and sort options are some of the customisable features you can adjust to get the optimum experience.
