New York native Jaymz Nylon is a name that’s been in the mix for more than a couple of
years. Heralded as the godfather of Afro-tech, Jaymz’ reputation as a sought-after

Pioneer – No More CDs

xdj-1000-cd-free-cdjs-640x360
Pioneer XDJ-1000 $999 All-Digital Player Ditches The CDs
via: Dan White

Pioneer has sneakily debuted a brand new media player for DJs – the XDJ-1000 – that takes the CD out of the CDJ. Instead, it’s purely designed for Rekordbox, USB drive, and HID control purposes – finally bringing to the masses a relatively affordable solution for digital playback in a professional CDJ-style design.

TOUCH INSTEAD OF HARDWARE

The unit has the exact same form factor as the CDJ-2000 Nexus units – same dimensions and control layout – although keen-eyed CDJ users will note the lack of cuepoint buttons, touch strip for searching, etc.
141113_3

Instead, the XDJ-1000 has a 7 inch touchscreen – which allows control for setting loops, beat sync, cuing, slip mode, and a new function, Beat Jump / Loop Move (a basic function that Traktor has held alone in the digital DJ world.
141113_5

There’s also now a QWERTY-style keyboard for searching through your tracks- way easier than just rummaging around folders.
pic_xdj1000_usb3

Also of interest is a new automatic import of player settings (things like Quantize and Master Tempo) from whatever you have them set at in Rekordbox – and a color-coding for playlists that actually corresponds to an LED that lights up around the USB stick plugged in.

FINALLY AFFORDABLE?

Pioneer’s website lists the suggested retail price as being $999 – which implies we might see even lower prices as the minimum advertised price. We’ve reached out to Pioneer to find out if this is an expected street price, but no answer yet.

WHAT’S THE WEIGHT?

Anyone who’s ever moved a CDJ-2000 before knows that they’re around 10 pounds (4.7 kg) – pretty heavy for a piece of DJ equipment. Removing the CD drive (the only moving parts on the player) would seem to reduce the need for at least a few of those pounds. The XDJ-1000′s weight is down a bit to 7.27 pounds (3.3kg) – enough to still keep the unit stable when James Zabiela or DJ EZ inevitably get their frenetic mix sessions on these XDJs, but slightly more portable.

THE FIRST OF MANY?

Pioneer has a very interesting note on their video description:

“… the XDJ-1000: the first in a new line-up of digitally focused, USB-only, rekordbox™-ready players.”

This makes it pretty clear that Pioneer isn’t stopping here – and we’ll see other versions of this CD-free XDJ line in the coming months. Will we go up to a higher-featured XDJ-2000, or perhaps we’ll drop down into serious budget territory and make feature-slimmed XDJ-400s that are easy for any DJ to add too their setup?

SERATO AND REKORDBOX ONLY?

Something strange about the press release stuck out to us – a hint that perhaps Traktor HID mode might not be enabled when the product launches:

“USB-HID control possible with Serato Inc.’s “Serato DJ” software (More information will be published on the support site pioneerdj.com/support/ once available.)”

With Native Instruments very focused on selling their own screen-laden Kontrol S8, it wouldn’t be a surprise if there’s some feet-dragging on both sides to get Traktor HID integration.
