Pioneer today announced the DJM-750, the latest addition to its four-channel club performance mixer range and a clear upgrade from the DJM-700. It boasts new effects innovations, while retaining the digital DJ-friendly built-in four-in/four-out USB audio interface and full Midi control, as featured on its similar bigger brother, the Pioneer DJM-850. A new “Boost Colour FX” knob adds a second effect to the currently enabled Sound Colour effect, which uniquely allows DJs to change FX parameters depending upon how fast the knob is twisted, and a vinyl brake effect has been added to the beat FX options.
Pioneer says the built-in audio interface works with “DVS systems”, but there is no mention of onboard compatibility with Traktor Scratch, as the DJM-850 has. However, Pioneer DJ gear is getting increasingly more integrated Traktor HID functionality without the need for traditional timecode, so maybe this is less an issue than it might previously have been, especially when the unit is paired with, say, a pair of Traktor-friendly Pioneer CDJ-850 media players.
As befits a pro club mixer, its basic spec is good: There are four audio channels, one mic channel, master / booth / record outs, and FX send/return, and the audio interface is the same quality as that of the flagship DJM-900nexus. The DJM-750 will be available in black or silver from June at a suggested retail price of £839 / €999.
