Pioneer today introduced a new PC-based software solution for the growing number of DJs who prefer .mp3 files to vinyl, CD or DVD.
Pioneer's DJS software (SVJ-DL01) was designed for professional and amateur DJs to enable full-scale DJ play on a PC. The software offers the same playability and functionality as the company's Pro DJ products, using a PC instead of two CDJ turntables and a DJ mixer.
DJS software combines the key elements of Pioneer's professional digital CD decks and mixers with a host of essential features including auto mixing, waveform display for indicating playing position and cue/loop points, BPM and beat synchronization, eight effects including Delay, Echo, Auto Pan, Trans, Filter, Flanger, Reverb and Pitch Shifter. Of course, channel, fader and
cross fader virtual switches are also included in the main software panel. For creative DJs, the Pioneer software allows setting of four points for cues or loops in a song.
In addition, a ripping function for converting CD, line input signals and wave files to .mp3 are also supported.
The graphic user interface follows the same ergonomic design used in all Pioneer CDJ products and mixers. The DJ can assign basic functions to a particular key on the PC keyboard, a very usefull feature that allows controlling of functions fast through the PC keyboard.
In addition, the 'SYNC' feature automatically beat matches the cued track to the track that is playing and a powerful effects program mimics the effector features of the DJM-600.
Pioneer offers a limited one-year warranty for Pro Audio products purchased from authorized dealers. For more information visit www.PioneerProDj.com
