Audio mixing has taken a new twist since the inception of the digital age but nothing beats the true art of dubbing and mixing sounds with the use of an actual turntable. Apparently Pioneer is bringing back that practice by coming up with two new CDJ digital turntables that makes it easier to mix some good tracks compared to the use of laptops or PCs for all the DJ wannabes.
The two new Pioneer digital turntables are the CDJ-2000 and the CDJ-900. Both allow the playback of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF audio files from CDs or USB drives. As far as the CDJ-2000 is concerned it has the usual LCD panel and Graphics User Interface, a needle search and a Jog Dial for DJ use.
The CDJ-900 on the other hand features a Slip Mode and an Advanced Auto Loop which allows users to customize sounds with a touch of a button.
The CDJ-2000 will retail for $2,150 and shall start shipping this November. The CDJ-900 will be available in December 2009 for a MSRP of $1,600.
