Professional Multi-Player

The industry standard has evolved.
Access your music over WiFi/USB from smartphone or tablet.

Industry first1 DJ play using music stored inside smartphones and tablets2 via Wi-Fi/USB connection
Music stored inside Wi-Fi/USB-connected iPhone/iPod touch/iPad devices can be transmitted to the “CDJ-2000nexus” using the iOS version of “rekordbox™” (available on the App Store free of charge) for DJ play. The touch panel displays of iPads, etc. can be used for intuitive music selection with controls that users will already be familiar with. In addition, the enclosed Mac version of “rekordbox™” can be used to send music to the “CDJ-2000nexus” from inside a Wi-Fi-connected Mac. Also, when connecting via USB, the device can be charged during DJ play. Android OS devices can send music via Wi-Fi/USB connections using the Android version of “rekordbox™” (available on the Google Play free of charge), and music can also be transmitted from Windows PCs via Wi-Fi connections using the enclosed Windows version of “rekordbox™”.

Includes “rekordbox™” music management software for advance preparation of music to be used in DJ play
Music files can be analyzed with “rekordbox™” installed on a computer, music can be managed (settings, create/edit, save logs) in the optimum way for DJ play, and the music to be used can be prepared in advance. The “CDJ-2000nexus” features new music file analysis functions such as “WAVE ZOOM (waveform expansion)” and “KEY” as well as new “ACTIVE LOOP” and “HOT CUE AUTO LOAD” settings.
By using an iPhone with the rekordbox™ for (iOS) installed, the iPhone can be used for preparation and management of music used in DJ play through features such as playlist creation, cue/loop point settings, beat location settings, waveform analysis, and so on. Also, by wirelessly transmitting to an iPhone music that has been managed with the “rekordbox™”4 for Mac, preparations can be made while on the move or at one’s destination, and music information configured on iPhone can be wirelessly transmitted4 to computers.

“PRO DJ LINK” function expands scale of DJ performances
By connecting multiple players (up to 4 units) with LAN cables, various new functions have been added to expand the scale of DJ performances alongside the existing content-sharing functions.

Full-color LCD display for quick song selection and instant understanding of musical progress
The “CDJ-2000nexus” adopts a large 6.1-inch full-color LCD to clearly display information that is required when performing DJ play. Music artwork and large quantities of music information are displayed in lists, and the intended music can be found easily and intuitively. In addition to the existing “WAVE” display that provides a visual understanding of all music, “WAVE ZOOM”makes it possible to instantly grasp the preceding music development by displaying waveforms that can be expanded/minimized to five different levels color-coded according to bandwidth.

“SLIP” and “QUANTIZE”3 functions for reliable performance without changing progress of original music

SLIP: The “SLIP MODE” function keeps music moving in the background during LOOP/REVERSE/SCRATCH/ HOT CUE/PAUSE. This makes it possible to produce bold musical arrangements without changing the progress of the original music even after these functions have been used.

QUANTIZE: The “CDJ-2000nexus” is loaded with a QUANTIZE function that automatically and accurately quantizes when using LOOP/REVERSE/HOT CUE, even if the dynamic of the beat has gone out of sync. This enables reliable performance without breaking the rhythm of music during playback.

My Settings function for immediate access to personal preferences
The function settings of this device can be saved to USB storage devices, SD memory cards, smartphones and tablets, and can be applied to this device as necessary. In addition, “CDJ-2000nexus” settings can be made on “rekordbox™” and sent directly to this device, which means that you can instantly switch to your own settings when prepared in advance when alternating DJs.

New algorithm enables master tempo to deliver sound quality more faithful to original tone
A new algorithm has been adopted to deliver sound quality that is more faithful to the original tone, even when there are drastic shifts in tempo during playback of wide-ranging music. This enables high-quality mix playback even when there is a big difference in track tempo.

High sound quality design for faithful reproduction of original tone and clear/powerful club sound
While inheriting the audio circuit from the “CDJ-2000”, this new device delivers a powerful sound that is stable even in high-volume environments such as DJ booths by means of improved anti-shock properties and reduced contact resistance through the adoption of a type of AC inlet that has a large power cable contact area. A clear and powerful sound that is faithful to the original has also been realized by reducing jitter to 1/4 through the high-precision engineered clock of a high-performance D/A converter produced by Wolfson Microelectronics, adoption of a high sound quality operational amplifier, and digital noise reduction of power sources.

Support for various media and formats
A wide range of media and formats are supported to suit various styles of DJ play. As well as smartphones/tablets, music files can also be played from USB storage devices such as flash memory and hard disks, SD memory cards, audio CDs and DVDs. MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF file formats are supported.
