Who should upgrade to a Pioneer DDJ FLX 6?
If you have a Pioneer DDJ-400 or Pioneer DDJ-SB3, but 4-channels or want bigger jog wheels, then the Pioneer DDJ-FLX6 is for you. Working with both Rekordbox DJ and Serato DJ Pro, the Pioneer DDJ-FLX 6 would be a suitable upgrade for user of all smaller controllers.
If you are a club DJ, but don't have the budget for a club level DJ setup, the DDJ-FLX6 will give you similar sized jog wheels, in a familiar layout, without breaking the bank!
FLEX YOUR BOUNDARIES
The Pioneer DDJ-FLX6 is made to help you perform energetically and intuitively. The full-size jog wheels include a track position display so you can manipulate the music instinctively and, when you use them with some of the new features on the DDJ-FLX6, you can really spice things up.
For example, you can sound like a pro battle DJ when you use the brand-new Jog Cutter feature to create a variety of slick scratch sounds by simply moving the jog wheel backwards and forwards. You don’t need to know how to scratch and you don’t even have to touch the crossfader.
And with the Sample Scratch function, newly introduced to rekordbox, you can take sounds you’ve assigned to the sampler and load them onto the decks. This means you can scratch with your samples and even use them with Jog Cutter. And remember, you’ve got four channels to play with, so you can play tracks on decks 1 and 2, then start scratching samples on 3 and 4.
FULL SIZE JOG WHEELS, 4-CHANNELS AND UNDER £1000?
Pitch bending and scratching feels natural on the Pioneer DDJ-FLX6 thanks to the large jog wheels, which are the same size as Pioneer's flagship CDJ-3000 multi player.
In addition, the jog features a track position display, so you can keep an eye on the playhead position and easily use effects such as Jog Cutter and Sample Scratch.
This DDJ-FLX6 introduces a fresh look, with a high-quality dark-grey matte finish and redesigned jog wheels edge that will make your setup stand out 4 CHANNEL MIXER allowing seamless 3 & 4 deck playback within multiple software programs.
1-2 SWITCH: MERGE FX
Switching between different musical genres is a great way to keep your crowd on their feet. With the Pioneer DDJ-FLX6, you can effortlessly change from hip-hop to house, from rock to EDM, or between any other styles you want to play. There are no limits thanks to the new Merge FX feature.
With simple control of a single knob, you can create a dramatic build in the music and make it rise to a crescendo. Then, when you’re ready, press the knob to trigger a killer drop with an optional punchy sample. You can do all of this at any point in a song – you don’t need to know when the chorus or break is coming – then you can hit play on the other deck and drop your next track, which could be from a different genre with a totally different BPM that would normally be difficult to mix into your set.
There are eight Merge FX pattern presets to choose from (four if you use Serato DJ pro) and within these you can setup your own samples too.
If you’re DJing with rekordbox, you’ll find everything is customisable. Choose from 41 types of effects within the four categories that make up one Merge FX (Build FX, Build Sample, Release FX, and Drop Sample) and combine them to create more than 9,000 different patterns.
You can save eight of your own patterns and use the FX Select button on the unit to call them up whenever you want to perform a unique mix
JOG CUTTER: ONE HANDED PRO-SOUNDING SCRATCH EFFECTS
Turn on Jog Cutter and, when you move the jog wheel, a professional scratch effect will be applied to the last Hot Cue or playback position you used on that deck. 10 different scratch patterns, recorded with real scratch DJs, can be easily accessed by moving the jog wheel backward and forwards at various places within the 6 divided sections on the jog wheel.
Moving the jog wheel forwards selects the pattern. The pattern will be heard when the jog is moved backwards. Patterns will also vary when the playhead indicator crosses between sections, meaning you can create exciting scratch routines with ease. When you lift your hand, the track will continue to play as normal from the Hot Cue position.
SAMPLE SCRATCH: LOAD YOUR SAMPLES TO THE DECK
Sample Scratch is a brand-new pad mode in rekordbox which enables you to choose sounds you’ve assigned to the sampler and load them onto the decks. So, when you want to create a live remix of a track, or simply add some texture to the music, you can scratch with your favourite sounds.
PLUG AND PLAY: REKORDBOX AND SERATO DJ PRO
With a built-in sound card and support for the DJ Performance functions in rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro, all you need to do is connect the DDJ-FLX6 via USB cable to a laptop that’s running either software application and you can start DJing.
You don’t need a paid subscription plan for either. The Pioneer DDJ-FLX6 acts as a hardware unlock device for rekordbox performance mode, and also comes with license keys for the FX Pack and Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Packs for Serato DJ Pro. Meaning you can get creative with advanced features, no matter which application you choose.
