Pioneer DJM-850 : DJ Mixer with Beat Color FX

The DJM-850 performance DJ mixer comes with a range of features including the new Beat Color FX function.

The Beat Color FX function changes effects by linking the audio input from each channel.

The DJM-850 has also been certified by Native Instruments to work with Traktor Scratch Pro 2 and Duo 2 DJ software. Using the timecode disc bundled with the software and a PC, the DJM-850 is ready for scratch control (DVS) with a CDJ player or Vinyl turntable.

“Pioneer has included innovative new features in the DJM-850 that expand DJs’ creative capabilities when they’re using their favorite DJ software. We see the growing use of DJ software as a great opportunity to bring professional level quality and features to this space,” said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.

As you can see from the pictures, it pretty much follows the mixer layout of Pioneer's other DJ mixers.

Sound Color FX – 4 types of effects (Filter, Crush, Noise and Gate) that can be linked to the input sound of each channel.

Beat Color FX – You can quickly change between the new Beat Color FX and Sound Color FX to suit each tune for further remixing and sound capabilities. By activating the Beat Color FX, you can manipulate the Sound Color FX and Beat Effect simultaneously, resulting in more creative effects that complement the beat of the music.

Beat Effect – This function offers 13 different types of effects (Delay, Echo, Up Echo , Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Filter, Flanger, Phaser, Robot, Slip Roll, Roll, and Reverse Roll) that can be combined to produce up to 100 other original effects.

The built in 24 bit USB sound card provides sampling rates of 96kHz, 48kHz, and 44.1kHz. It has a 32 bit D/A converter for output, and the DSP for effects is also 32 bit.

It comes in both black and silver and has an MSRP of $1,999.
