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.

New and Improved Touchscreen Display

Pioneer CDJ-3000 features a 9-inch sharp, high resolution, touch screen display that is 150% brighter than its predecessor, making it more adjustable friendly to the user in differing environments. The intuitive user interface is familiar, yet it features some new additions, including shortcuts to making moving between sections within the music collection more manageable. The new functions include Stacked Waveform, 3Band Waveform, Touch Cue and Touch Preview, which aids in selecting a track quickly. Improvements have been made to the circuit in the DAC (Digital-to-analogue converter) along with critical testing aspects of the digital audio to achieve optimum sound quality. As a result, a reduction in digital noise has been achieved, to allow for natural sound to be created, at high volume, for long periods.

New and Improved Touchscreen Display

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.

Redesigned Jog Wheel

The new and improved jog wheel has a redesigned mechanism and claimed to be the sleekest on any multi-player made by Pioneer DJ. As a result, the user can scratch with minimal effort and can smoothly bend the pitch of tracks. The latency is the best it has ever been, and the handy LCD screen display in the centre of the jog wheel is excellent for a glance of vital track information.

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.

Advanced Audio Playback

Pioneer DJ pride themselves on the consistent quality of their sound reproduction. The CDJ-3000 relays this sound with intricate detail, precision and capturing the likeness of the original sound source over high, mid and low frequencies.

The processor is 96 kHz/32-bit and is playable in all audio formats. The CDJ3000 uses advanced audio processing technology including master tempo, speed playback and the new Key Shift functions, which aids in replicating the realistic spatial sound and musical bass sound.

Regarding the DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) each analogue audio component of the circuit has been reviewed, and improvements made. The digital audio has also been carefully looked at to ensure optimum sound quality is achieved, and the best possible design discovered for critical parts. As a result, a more natural sound has been created through radically reducing digital noise, both at high volume and for more extended periods.

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.
