A New Dimension: The Pioneer DJ CDJ-3000
Evolved flagship multi player offers new world of creative possibilities
Harness a higher level of creative power with our brand-new flagship multi player, the Pioneer DJ CDJ-3000 Professional DJ Multi Player. Driven by a new MPU (micro-processing unit) and boasting specially developed high-quality components, it’s a robust unit packed with innovative features to help your creativity flourish like never before.
The evolution of a legend
Since 1994’s debut of the CDJ-500 – the world’s first flat-top CD DJ player – each new flagship CDJ model has become a favorite to many of the most respected DJs and clubs around the globe. The ground-breaking CDJ-1000 enabled more performance techniques, such as scratches that were previously only possible on analog turntables. Then, the CDJ-2000 ushered in rekordbox and Pro DJ Link. For the first time, DJs could manage music before exporting it to USB drives to use with the multi players. Subsequent features such as Wave Display (for better understanding the musical development of tracks) and Beat Sync have made mixing more intuitive. In 2016, the CDJ-2000NXS2 became the first choice for clubs, festivals, and DJs all over the world who perform with digital music files, thanks to its improved feature set and outstanding sound quality.
The CDJ has evolved significantly since the 1990s. And, while the Pioneer CDJ-3000 is in many ways unrecognizable from the early units, it retains the ambition and purpose that have always driven the CDJ range: to provide you with an intuitive, great-feeling interface that gives you the power to manipulate the music any way you can think of (and in some ways you might not have imagined).
The most advanced player we’ve ever made
When you’re performing, you need to know the decks can make your creative vision a reality and handle everything you throw at them. We’ve designed the Pioneer CDJ-3000 to do that and more.
The new MPU in the unit is the first we’ve ever put in a CDJ. It drives the unit, delivering stable performance and enabling advanced new features, and it works with the other parts of the player to create a smoother DJ experience. For example, you’ll notice that tracks and Hot Cues load faster than ever thanks to the capabilities of the MPU and Gigabit Ethernet connection. The Pioneer CDJ-3000 is a rekordbox Hardware Unlock device too. So, to use Performance mode, all you need to do is to update to the latest version of the software, even if you’re using the Free subscription plan.
You pour your heart into your DJ sets, so all your hard work and creativity deserves to be felt by your audience. The crowd will hear your tracks, and every nuance of your performance, in rich detail thanks to the brand-new audio design in the CDJ-3000.
You won’t just hear the improvements in the Pioneer CDJ-3000 – you’ll see them too. You can choose the information you want to view in laser-sharp detail on the 9-inch touch screen, which is bigger and a higher resolution than the one on the CDJ-2000NXS2. We’ve kept the intuitive user interface so you’ll feel at home, but we’ve added handy new controls such as shortcuts to make it easier to jump between different categories in your music collection. New functions such as Touch Preview enable effortless and rapid track selection, and, with a host of other fresh features including Touch Cue, Stacked Waveform, and 3Band Waveform, you’ll always know where the perfect mix points are on the cued track and the one that’s currently playing.
Want to show what you can do and make new music on the fly? Perform on the CDJ-3000’s enhanced layout as if you’re using a musical instrument. Eight Hot Cue buttons – twice as many as the CDJ-2000NXS2 – are arranged from left to right underneath the waveform display for more intuitive triggering. Operate Beat Jump via the new hardware buttons and hit Key Sync to mix harmonically. You can also create a wider range of loops with the new 8-Beat Loop button which comes in addition to the classic 4-Beat control.
Feel is so important when you’re DJing – whether you’re making a tiny adjustment to a track’s pitch or performing the most intricate scratch technique. We’ve redesigned the jog wheel for the CDJ-3000 to create the smoothest action on any multi player we’ve ever made. Touch latency is also better than ever, and you can use the LCD screen in the center of the jog to keep an eye on the playhead position and reference album artwork. Find out about all of this, and more, below.
To use the CDJ-3000 with rekordbox, update to the latest version of the software. To play tracks from your iPhone, update to the latest version of rekordbox for iOS.
All-new advanced MPU brings enhanced performance and rock-solid stability: Have faith in the decks
As well as expanded creative options, the CDJ-3000 brings even more stability and reliability to your setup.
- Advanced MPU
With the new MPU, we’ve not only revolutionized the way the CDJ is driven but also made it work in a smoother, more stable way than any of its predecessors. The MPU’s processing power has enabled us to bring exciting new functions that weren’t possible before and gives us scope to introduce more features via future updates.
- Pro DJ Link with Gigabit Ethernet
Thanks to the Gigabit Ethernet connection for Pro DJ Link, you can share and play audio files from USB devices and SD cards on up to six CDJ-3000 units when you combine them with the 6-channel mixer such as the DJM-V10.
- Better screen visibility
The maximum screen brightness has been improved by more than 150% compared to that on the CDJ-2000NXS2, so you can crank it up depending on the environment you’re playing in and improve visibility.
- Tougher components
The high-quality aluminum top plate and redesigned play, cue, and Hot Cue buttons are stronger than ever and the lockable V-Lock power cable*1 guards against accidental disconnections that could interrupt your show. The unit also comes with a high-quality digital cable that’s easy to handle and perfect for use in clubs and professional setups.
Enhanced audio design: Let your audience hear the true sound of the music and every nuance of your performance
We’ve poured more than 25 years’ worth of experience into creating the ultimate DJ sound, which faithfully reproduces the audio of each track as the producer intended it to be heard, while also reflecting the most intricate details of your performance.
The Pioneer CDJ-3000 unifies internal audio calculation processing to 96 kHz/32-bit floating in all playable audio formats. As a result, the unit can capture the subtleties of the original sound source, including its depth and ambience, and even the slight changes in the timbre of the low range. Advanced audio processing technology such as variable speed playback, master tempo, and the new Key Shift function all help to create a more realistic representation of the spatial sound and a more musical bass sound than any other Pioneer DJ multi player has produced.
To get the maximum performance from the DAC (digital-to-analog converter), we’ve carefully reviewed each part of the circuit that outputs analog audio and made various improvements. We’ve also tuned the digital audio to achieve optimum sound quality in the player as a whole by testing numerous different components to find the best possible design for key parts. As a result, we’ve drastically reduced digital noise to create a natural sound that the crowd will want to listen to for long sets – even at high volume.
9-inch, high-resolution touch screen with never-seen-before features: Find all the information you need at a glance
With a touch screen that’s bigger and clearer than the one on the CDJ-2000NXS2, we’ve been able to add extra information, shortcuts, and buttons for frequently used categories and functions, such as Playlist and Search, so you can access them directly at any time. The GUI (graphic user interface) will feel familiar if you’ve used the CDJ-2000NXS2 before, plus you can customize the information you want to see and set preferences for aspects such as text size. You can now swipe on the screen to navigate and use the sort function to rearrange the track list by touching the display. All this makes for an improved workflow and helps you to browse tracks more instinctively. And a number of new features help you to choose the perfect track and the right moment to drop it into your mix:
- Touch Preview
Listen to any part of a track you want to preview by simply touching its waveform in the relevant place in the browse section. If you have multiple CDJ-3000 players connected with the DJM-V10 or DJM-900NXS2 mixer via Pro DJ Link, you can even preview tracks from another player thanks to Link Cue.
- Touch Cue
Listen to another part of the track that’s currently playing by touching the waveform – the crowd won’t hear what you’re doing. This comes in handy when you need to familiarize yourself with the progression of a track to identify a mix point, especially during DJ handovers and back-to-back sets. Link Cue (see above) even enables you to listen to different parts of the track that another DJ is playing on a separate player.
- Stacked Waveform
Keep an eye on the enlarged waveform of the track on the master player and the one you want to cue up, all on one screen. Identify mix points and visually check the beatgrids are perfectly lined up at a glance.
- Support for 3Band Waveform
Understand how a track sounds without even listening to it. 3Band Waveform uses different colors to indicate the volume of each frequency band in files analyzed by rekordbox so you can see the composition of the music just by looking at the waveform. 3Band Waveform comes in addition to the previous RGB and Blue options.
Key Sync and Key Shift: Mix in perfect harmony
Hit the Key Sync button and the Pioneer CDJ-3000 will automatically adjust the key of the incoming track to match the one playing on the master deck, helping you craft a smooth and harmonic mix. With Key Shift on the touch screen, you can manually shift the key of a track up or down.
Our smoothest-ever jog wheel: Feel the difference
Effortlessly scratch and smoothly bend the pitch of tracks. We’ve redesigned the mechanism inside the jog wheel so it feels slicker than any unit we’ve ever made, and we’ve reduced the touch latency by half compared to the CDJ-2000NXS2. The LCD screen in the center indicates playhead position and displays artwork for a quick visual reminder of which tracks are loaded on each deck.
Rebuilt range-leading performance interface: Effortlessly express your creativity
Get hands-on with the redesigned controls and new features of the CDJ-3000 – all arranged in a way that lets you play the CDJ like it’s a musical instrument.
- Eight Hot Cue buttons
Intuitively trigger Hot Cues via the eight buttons that run from left to right underneath the waveform display. The linear positioning makes it feel more natural to select cue points according to their position in the track.
- Dedicated Beat Jump buttons
Jump forward or backward from the current playback position in the track by pressing the dedicated Beat Jump buttons. You can set the quantized number of beats to a value of 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 beats.
- Advanced Auto Beat Loop section
As well as the popular 4-Beat Loop control from the CDJ-2000NXS2, the CDJ-3000 includes an 8-Beat Loop button for further creative possibilities. Want to make polyrhythmic loops? Use the expanded options for odd-numbered loops to remix sounds on the fly.
Flexible performance options: DJ the way you want to
Play rekordbox-analyzed music from USB drives via Export mode or connect your laptop with USB-HID control to use Link Export or Performance mode. Because the CDJ-3000 is a Hardware Unlock device, you can use Performance mode for free – there’s no need for a paid subscription plan – so you can play all the tracks in your rekordbox library, including any from Beatport/Beatsource LINK and SoundCloud Go+ (subscriptions required for streaming services).
You can even connect your iPhone to the CDJ-3000 via a USB cable*2 and mix music directly from the latest iOS version of rekordbox, which supports lossless file types including WAV, FLAC, ALAC, and AIFF as well as MP3 and AAC.
An upcoming release of Serato DJ Pro will introduce official support for the CDJ-3000, so watch out for news on that.
Pro DJ Link with enhanced lighting support: Take your show to the next level
Sync your sounds with lights thanks to compatibility with the new Pro DJ Link Lighting feature. The CDJ-3000 sends phrase analysis information to rekordbox (PC/Mac) so you can control lighting effects via the RB-DMX1 (available separately) and take your show to the next level.
Stunningly clear sound quality
Your performances will sound better than ever on the Pioneer DJ DJM-A9, which takes the audio quality from the DJM-900NXS2 to another level.
This next-generation club sound comes from extensive development and fine-tuning of existing technology from previous units, plus brand-new components. The channel input section is equipped with an ESS Technology 32-bit high-quality A/D converter for crystal-clear, high-resolution sound, while the master and booth output sections employ 32-bit high-quality D/A converters from the same brand so you can experience sound from the booth monitors that’s the same as the crowd hears on the dancefloor. Even the sound quality of the microphone input and headphone outputs has been improved with carefully selected new parts and design optimization.
Feel like you’re playing a musical instrument when you get your hands on the Pioneer DJ DJM-A9, which inherits the familiar layout from the DJM range but includes updated controls and components for accurate mixing and instinctive scratching.
Increased spacing around the EQ knobs gives you the room to twist your fingers, and high-grade, bright LEDs in the channel section make it easier than ever to get a visual grasp on sound levels. You can perform more dynamically thanks to the frequency response of the isolators, which have been optimized to make the most of the latest music production traits. And, with higher-quality, slicker channel faders than the DJM-900NXS2, plus the third-generation MAGVEL FADER crossfader, you can enjoy silk-smooth mixing and rapid, stable scratching.
Sound Color FX with world’s first Center Lock
Turn on the brand-new Center Lock feature and, when you’re using the popular Sound Color FX, each knob will stop turning when you reach the center position. This means you can twist the dial as quickly as you like, taking the effect right up to the maximum of the hi or down to the minimum of the low parameter, without the risk of going too far and switching to the opposite parameter. When you turn Center Lock off, the Sound Color FX knobs work in the same way as those on the DJM-900NXS2.
Newly advanced Beat FX
The Beat FX section, a long-time favorite element of the DJM series, has been significantly enhanced for the Pioneer DJ DJM-A9. A new color display helps you to quickly and accurately understand the status of the selected effect, and it features lighting that corresponds with the X-Pad’s horizontal arrangement, enabling more intuitive control with a simple finger slide. You can use the X-Pad to change the Echo and Ping Pong effects to create a unique analog tape-style sound. And, within the 14 total Beat FX, there are 3 new ones you can use to add extra variation to your performances:
- Mobius: Changes the frequency of the oscillator to constantly rise or fall in time with the beat.
- Triplet Filter: Changes the cut-off frequency cyclically for the filter according to the beat (based on 3 beats).
- Triplet Roll: Outputs the recorded sound repeatedly according to the specified beat fraction (based on 3 beats).
Even better, the channel selector is now a dedicated button, enabling you to quickly apply effects to your chosen channel.
Enhanced mic section
In response to the evolving needs DJs have when using microphones during live streams and club sets, the mic section of the Pioneer DJ DJM-A9 has been developed so you can enjoy more control and add extra creativity to your performances on the mic. The phantom powered input means you can connect a high-quality condenser mic directly to the DJM-A9, a feature never seen before on a DJ mixer. And there are 3 new microphone effects, with a dedicated reverb effect so you can change the sound of your voice and hype up the crowd with your vocals:
- Echo: Outputs a delay sound several times while attenuating it to add an echo effect.
- Pitch: Changes the pitch of the microphone sound.
- Megaphone: Changes the microphone sound so it sounds like you’re talking through a megaphone.
It’s quick and easy to turn the mic input on or off with the brand-new Push-to-Talk button when you want to grab the mic and address the audience. The audio from the mic can be excluded from the recording output if you want, so you can MC for the live crowd but record your mix without vocals.
Connect 2 different PC/Mac systems at the same time thanks to the dual USB Type-B and USB Type-C ports (there are 2 of each) for seamless transitions between DJs and easy back-to-back sets. And, with a Bluetooth input which you can route to any channel on the DJM-A9, you can wirelessly drop audio tracks into your sets from other devices such as smartphones and use all the mixer’s features and effects to change the sound. The Multi I/O section has an independent channel selector so external effects can be used separately from Beat FX, giving the DJM-A9 true send capabilities. This means you can route the effected sound from an external unit such as an RMX-1000 or a delay pedal to a separate channel instead of the channel it came from.
Dual independent headphone outputs and booth EQ
Plug in your headphones at the same time as another DJ and enjoy the freedom to monitor the channels you want to. With separate cue buttons, volume knobs, and mix balance knobs for each set of headphones, it’s easy for 2 DJs to cue up tracks during changeovers and back-to-back sets. Plus, with the 2-band booth EQ, you can change the high and low frequencies to complement the master output and match the mood in the booth to the feeling on the dancefloor.
Support for the brand-new Stagehand app and built-in Sound Check function
The DJM-A9 is compatible with Stagehand, the industry-first PRO DJ LINK remote management app for front of house teams. Using an iPad connected wirelessly to the mixer via a LAN router (available separately), an engineer can keep an eye on things such as level meters and the DJ’s use of the mixer’s controls, making it easier to maximize the sound system’s settings and run a smoother, more impactful show without needing to interrupt the DJ’s performance or even enter the booth. To download the Stagehand app, visit the App Store.
- Support for rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro
Choose your favorite DJ software to use with the DJM-A9, which includes support for the DVS features in both rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro.*
- DJM-REC app support for reliable recording
Easily record your performances with DJM-REC for iOS/Android. This handy app enables you to share your mixes via platforms such as Mixcloud and stream in real time via services including Twitch.
- Lockable power cord^
Relax in the knowledge that the lockable power cord will always stay firmly in place, even if you knock it while connecting or disconnecting other equipment from the mixer.
- Video and lighting app support
With support for TC Supply’s ShowKontrol and the free app PRO DJ LINK Bridge, DJs, event producers, lighting designers, LJs, video creators, and VJs can produce sound and visual coordination with confidence and create shows that captivate audiences.
*To use Serato DJ Pro, you’ll need to buy a license or subscription.
^In some regions, a non-lockable power cord is supplied.
