A new pearl white version of the company's entry-level DJ system comprises two CDJ-350-W digital media players and a DJM-350-W 2-channel mixer.
The CDJ-350-W will allow users to create DJ performances with various digital music files, including MP3, AAC, WAV, and AIFF files that are stored on different forms of media, including USB mass storage device class products and CD-R/RW discs. The media player also includes Pioneer''s proprietary music-management software, rekordbox™, which analyzes and categorizes music by genre. Connecting a USB storage device loaded with playlists created with the software allows users to choose songs by various criteria such as genre, album name, artist name, etc. Music sessions can also be saved to a USB storage device and then saved in rekordbox as an original playlist.
Other features include BEAT display function, Audio Beat Loop function, auto-bpm lock, and create Playlist function.
The DJM-350-W mixer inherits similar functions and operability of the Pioneer DJM Series of mixers. With its new pearl-white makeover, the built-in level meter''s red, white and blue LEDs create a stunning appearance. The mixer is equipped with four sound effects including the newly added Noise and Short Echo, as well as an isolated 3-band equalizer. The Type-A USB port on the front top panel allow users to record their DJ mixes onto a USB storage device, review their mix and take it with them to listen to on other devices.
Pioneer''s packaged pearl white DJ system will be available in January 2011 and comes with two CDJ-350-W players and one DJM-350-W mixer for a suggested retail price of $2,445.
