Pioneer DJ DJM-S9
Pioneer’s DJM-S9, their first two-channel battle mixer for DJs, inherits its high-quality audio circuitry from the flagship 4-channel digital mixer (DJM-2000NXS), and comes with a fully customizable Magvel Pro magnetic crossfader, tactile performance pads and FX buttons that let you tailor the mixer according to your preferences. The power inlet is designed to reduce resistance and deliver the stable sound you need in loud club environments, along with personalized FX and rigorous scratch performances.
For dynamic live mixing, 16 multi-color touch pads give accesss to Hot Cue, Roll, Slice, Loop and more. Their optimized shape and seat switch connections provide great accuracy and response, while the EL display instantly shows which mode is in play. In Pioneer DJ you can map other functions to the pads and allocate specific colors for an even strong visual cue.
Six customizable buttons on each side of the mixer, and two in the middle, trigger effects directly on your hardware. Fire up six dedicated Beat FX on the left banks, or replace them with other popular on-board FX. On the right, you can map your favorite Serato DJ FX* and their parameters. The OEL display puts the effect types and beat settings at your fingertips. Serato DJ offers up to 55 different FX (paid expansion pack needed), and with two USB soundcards this makes it the ultimate plug-and-play Serato DJ mixer.
With the Magvel Fader Pro, the operational load can be changed using the Feeling Adjust dial and modifying its Curve and Reverse configuration to suit your DJ style. On top, it has shock-absorbing bumpers to reduce unnecessary rebounds. A high/low pass filter on each channel lets you manipulate FX by simply rotating the knob. With Serato DJ you can switch to other filter FX like Dub Echo, Noise and Pitch.
The mixer itself has two large style levers that allow you to swiftly turn effects on and off. Give more dynamics to your sets by triggering FX briefly, locking them on, or exiting arrangements quickly. Fully assignable MIDI functionality via USB can transmit most control information to external devices and can also be used as a MIDI controller. The clip display shows you when your input levels are too high, while the peak limiter eliminates distortion on the MASTER output.
