Pioneer has revealed their latest DJ device for producers everywhere. The DDJ-FLX6 is a new 4 channel controller that supports a plethora of new tasks, with a fresh redesign.
All-new Merge FX: Dynamically Switch from One Track to the Next With a Single Action
Add drama to sets and easily mix different styles of music with Merge FX. No matter the BPM or key the next track is, artists can create an exciting transition whenever they choose. Artists simply press the knob to engage the effect, then turn it as fast or as slow as desired to build tension in the music. Depending on the chosen effect, the pitch of the track might climb, while a short interval snare drum sample plays until the artist is ready to drop the next song. When ready, artists can release the effect and quickly introduce the next song or genre of music by pressing the knob. Artists have eight Merge FX pattern presets to choose from when using rekordbox, and four when using Serato DJ Pro. Regardless of the software, artists have the freedom to use their own samples. When DJing from rekordbox, artists can choose from 41 types of effects within the four categories (Build FX, Build Sample, Release FX, and Drop Sample) making up one Merge FX and combine them to create more than 9,000 different patterns. Artists can also save eight of their own patterns and use the FX Select button on the unit to cue whenever they wish to perform a unique mix.
Jog Cutter: Craft Pro-Sounding Scratch Effects One-Handed
Turn on Jog Cutter and move the jog wheel to apply a professional scratch effect to the last Hot Cue or playback position used on the deck. Artists can choose from ten different scratch patterns, and quickly shift from one pattern to another by adjusting the playhead position shown on the jog wheel display. After lifting their hands away from the board, the track will continue to play as normal from the Hot Cue position.
Perform Intuitively: Full-size Jog Wheels with Track Position Display
The DDJ-FLX6 delivers natural-feeling pitch bending and scratching with full-size jog wheels, the same size as those on the flagship CDJ-3000 multi-player. Each jog wheel features an On Jog Display allowing artists to keep an eye on the playhead position. Sample Scratch: Get Creative with Your Favorite Sounds Sample Scratch is a brand-new pad mode in rekordbox enabling artists to choose sounds assigned to the sampler and load them onto the decks. Sample Scratch empowers artists to add textures with their favorite sounds. Artists with Serato DJ Pro can use Scratch Bank to trigger samples by hitting the Performance Pads.
Play Freely: Plug and Play Compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro
With a built-in sound card and support for the DJ Performance functions in rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro, the DDJ-FLX6 eliminates the need for a paid subscription. Simply connect the DDJ-FLX6 via USB cable to a laptop running either software application to begin DJing. The new controller also includes license keys for the Serato DJ Pro FX Pack and Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Packs, allowing artists to use advanced features, regardless of the software.
New Aesthetic Design: Be Among The First to Play on The New-Style Unit
The DDJ-FLX6 welcomes a new controller aesthetic with a dark gray matte finish and a unique jog wheel design. Aside from the new design, the controller inherits the comfortable layout found on the renowned club-standard CDJ and DJM setup to deliver intuitive performance.
