Pioneer DJ just announced the DJM-450 mixer ahead of BPM|PRO 2016. It’s a two-channel mixer that inherits some features from Pioneer DJ’s own DJM-900NXS2, such as the Magvel crossfader and Sound Color and Beat FX. It comes with a USB sound card onboard for hooking up to your laptop, meaning you can use it with Pioneer DJ’s Rekordbox DJ software, and is compatible with the Rekordbox DVS add-on as well, letting you spin with timecode CDs or vinyl. The DJM-450 comes in a smaller form factor that makes it an ideal mixer for the similarly sized XDJ-700 multi players.
• The Pioneer DJ DJM-450 will be available from November 2016 at US$699. Check the Pioneer DJ website for more details.
