In a move to expand the DJ industry with new artists and talent, AlphaTheta Music Americas' Pioneer DJ brand today announces a fresh addition to its family of DJ controllers, the DDJ-FLX4. The all-new 2-channel DJ controller combines foundational elements from Pioneer DJs range of professional equipment with an intuitive and educational user interface to help aspiring artists embark on their mixing journey.
The DDJ-FLX4 integrates two new smart features to help beginner DJs start mixingSmart Fader and Smart CFX. Smart Fader allows artists to effortlessly transition between tracks with a simple glide of the crossfader or channel faders. After sliding the fader, the DDJ-FLX4 automatically adjusts the track's BPM, volume, bass volume and other aspects of the music to create a seamless transition into the next song. Artists can also spice up their favourite tracks with the help of Smart CFX-an effect that applies complicated combinations of effects to the music with the turn of a knob.
The all-new DDJ-FLX4 DJ controller design couples a simplistic matte grey body and metallic grey mixer to provide aspiring artists a sleek, performance-intuitive first controller to start mixing on. Artists can familiarise themselves with fundamental mixing skills using the controller's two glossy jog wheels and sampling techniques with eight performance pads on each deck. The controller employs a bright amber orange LED light to illuminate key controls, while still maintaining the controller's minimalistic aesthetic.
Streaming performances to friends, family and followers is easy with the DDJ-FLX4's USB audio output design. This design removes the need for external equipment such as a mixer or soundcard and outputs the microphone from the controller. In doing so, artists can share their set via stream from a single computer. Better yet, the DDJ-FLX4 relies on USB bus power-allowing artists to practice and play on the go.
Pioneer DJ's DDJ-FLX4 extends artists the freedom to mix with their software of choice: Pioneer DJ's rekordbox or Serato. When mixing with rekordbox for Mac/Windows, artists receive free use of the software's Performance mode. Better yet, a major update to rekordbox for iOS/Android coming in early 2023 will allow for DDJ-FLX4 use with an artist's iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad or Android tablet.
The DDJ-FLX4 also offers artists free use of Serato DJ Lite. Additionally, Artists can upgrade their Serato capabilities with a Serato DJ Pro subscription. Both rekordbox and Serato enable artists to play music files stored on their device; as well as tracks from TIDAL, Beatport Streaming, Beatsource Streaming and SoundCloud Go+.
