Pioneer is introducing a new two-channel mixer: the DJM-450. Inheriting features and design elements from the flagship DJM-900NXS2, the DJM-450 is the ideal mixer to partner with XDJ-700 multiplayers or PLX-1000 turntables to create a professional-style set-up. It comes bundled with licence keys for rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs so you can DJ with tracks stored on your PC/Mac when using turntables and our control vinyl (available separately).

Mixing on the DJM-450 is seamless thanks to the smooth curves on the EQs and channel faders. The Magvel crossfader, inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, gives an accurate response and assured feel during complicated scratch techniques. Sound Colour FX and Beat FX with parameter control also come from our flagship mixer, so you can add professional creative flair to your mixes. Warm, high-quality audio from both analogue and digital sound sources comes thanks to the 64-bit digital signal processor, which uses dithering technology, and the built-in sound card means you can connect the DJM-450 to your PC/Mac with a single USB cable and use the bundled rekordbox dvs application to control your digital tracks with turntables and the dedicated control vinyl


Mixing on the DJM-450 feels instinctive thanks to the layout design, which inherits traits from the DJM-900NXS2 professional mixer.

The EQ lets you balance the high, mid and low frequencies on every channel. Choose your preferred EQ level or use the isolator to totally eliminate each EQ band for the perfect mix.

Pioneer's robust Magvel Faders ensure smooth control over long-term use. Two metal shafts support the fader knobs, while the contact-free magnetic system is designed to endure millions of performances.

Engage 8 different types of Beat FX Delay, Echo, Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Flanger, Pitch and Roll in sync with the bpm. Or trigger 4 studio-quality Sound Colour FX Dub Echo, Sweep, Noise and Filter and use the parameter control knob to add more creativity to your mixes.

You get a free rekordbox dj licence key bundled with this mixer. Simply activate your licence key for our DJ software, connect to your computer via USB, and start DJing.

You also get a free licence key for rekordbox dvs included in the box for low-latency scratching with CDJs and XDJs. Or play and scratch with tracks from your rekordbox library using analogue turntables and the Control Vinyl (sold separately).

Whether you're playing from digital or analogue sound sources, a warm, high-quality sound is created by the 64-bit digital signal processor using dithering technology.

Use built-in FX and external FX from mobile apps at the same time. Simply connect your smartphone or tablet via USB to engage instrument and FX apps.

The XLR terminal and gold-plated RCAs deliver premium sound quality on all connections. And the signal GND terminal easily attaches ground wires from analogue turntables.

There are only 4 fairly minor dislikes I can think of. The crossfader could use a little sharper of a cut for scratching and it's slightly noisy unless you are practising in a loud enviroment. Secondly, it is just unfortunate that there is no Booth 1/4" output. Thirdly, I miss the old colour FX from the DJM800, in particular the Bit Crush colour FX. Fourth of all, the Sweep colour FX will not work the same as it did on the old DJM800, which used to cut the Mid-range frequencies when swept to the left and doing the opposite(leaving only Mid-range frequencies) when swept to the right. Mostly just comparisons to the old Pioneer DJM800. Those are hardly complaints, which is the only reason I take half of a star away for Features. If you love the art of mixing then you wont need the features that I have listed above. This mixer is still full of greatness!! Get it, or dont. Think for yourself ;) I approve. Also this mixer works as a Traktor interface(Traktor Scratch Certified) if you upgrade to Traktor Scratch Pro 3, for those not wanting to switch to Rekordbox.
