Take Your Performance Anywhere: Pioneer DJ Introduces the New DDJ-800 Controller, Designed for rekordbox dj – 2-Channel DJ Controller with Professional Performance Capabilities in a Compact, Portable Body

Sponsored by Businesswire

Take a pro setup wherever you go with the DDJ-800, a new compact
2-channel DJ performance controller for dedicated use with our
professional performance application, rekordboxdj. The
DDJ-800 is designed to help you get the most from the new features
coming to the software with the release of rekordboxTM ver.
5.5.0 today.

Inheriting the layout design of the DDJ-1000 – which has earned a strong
reputation with professional DJs who perform at weddings, parties, and
events outside the club environment – the DDJ-800 packs a host of
performance features into a lighter body.

The DDJ-800 is the first piece of hardware*1 compatible with
the brand-new Feedback Reducer feature in rekordbox dj,*2
which automatically lessens the “howling” sound of microphone feedback.
The DJ controller also features Color On Jog Display, giving you all the
information you need for professional performances right in the center
of each jog wheel.

The DDJ-800 will be available via our
at an MAP of $899. It comes with a bundled license key for
our professional DJ performance application rekordbox dj, worth $129.

To help keep your DDJ-800 safe from bumps and scrapes on the road, the
DJC-800 BAG will be available from our
(available EMEA only). The DJ controller fits snugly into
the custom-designed protective bag which features an EVA Durashock
molded body, impact-resistant egg-foam, black ballistic polyester, and a
soft, fleeced lining.

1. Compact, lighter, portable body

Take the DDJ-800 wherever you want thanks to its portable design, which
is smaller than the DDJ-1000 by 22% in volume and 1.3 kg in weight.

2. Color On Jog Display for quick
reference to enable accurate performances

The DDJ-800 is our first 2-channel controller to feature high-definition
LCD screens showing information such as playback time, BPM, and
waveforms in the center of each jog wheel. Cue Scope indicates the
distance in bars from the current playback position to Hot Cue points
and Loop points, enabling you to mix quickly and more accurately. You
can choose to display full artwork on the displays, helping you
instantly identify the track loaded on a deck by simply looking at the
jog wheel.

3. Feedback Reducer – the first feature
on a DJ controller to lessen microphone “howling

Pass the mic around with confidence. The DDJ-800 is the first controller
that supports the new Feedback Reducer feature in rekordbox dj, which
instantly detects the “howling” frequency of feedback and brings it
down. Plus, two independent mic inputs give you greater flexibility when
you’re juggling DJs, MCs, and guest speakers.

4. Club-style layout and features

Perform with the DDJ-800 as if you’re using our flagship setup. All the
buttons, knobs, and faders on the controller are arranged and used in
the same way as those on our club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2

Use Feeling Adjust to set the resistance on the jog wheels to your
preferred weight for scratching and spice up your sets with the popular
Sound Color FX and Beat FX from our DJM mixer series. You can instantly
reference BPM and the name of the selected FX without looking at your
PC/Mac thanks to the dedicated Beat FX display, making it easy to use
the FX whenever inspiration strikes.

5. Audio mixer feature – control
external input volume

You can use the DDJ-800 as a mixerto control the volume of
audio input from an external device – even when you’re using it on its
own*3 – by adjusting the trims, channel faders and EQs. And,
when the controller is connected to rekordbox dj, you can use Sound
Color FX and Beat FX too.

6. Other features

  • Performance Pads – use the 16 tactile illuminated rubber pads
    (8 per deck) to trigger Hot Cues, Pad FX, Beat Jump, Sampler, Keyboard
    mode, and more
  • Advanced Super Fast Search – quickly reach any playback position
