Product Description

With USB Integration & MP3 Playback, the CDJ-400's cosmetic design is simple and compact yet elegant with all of its various controls and features located directly on top of the unit. A USB port found on the face of the player allows DJs to play their MP3 music collection from a wide variety of portable music devices such as thumb drives, MP3 players or external hard drives. With the use of a multi-function selector knob/button and its large, bright, dot-matrix LCD display, locating and accessing of files from these types of music devices as well as MP3 music files on CD and CD-R/RW through the CD slot are done with a turn and press of the knob. DJ Software Compatibility and MIDI Control With more of today's DJs utilizing different DJ software for their performances, the CDJ-400 is also equipped with a PC mode. In this mode, the CDJ-400 is a native controller for software such as Pioneer DJS computer software and Serato Scratch Live. For example, the movement of the pitch slider on the CDJ-400 can control the pitch slider on the computer software and no time code CD is required for audio control. The player can also act as a MIDI controller were you can assign virtually every button on the player to trigger functions of various DJ software programs. World's First Scratch Jog EffectA highlight and an advancement of the CDJ-400 is its scratching capability. In addition to traditional vinyl" mode scratching, Pioneer implemented the World's First Scratch Jog Effect. Three highlighted buttons, each assigned to a special effect, Bubble, Trans and Wah, creates unique scratching sound effects that can be enabled by the DJ on the fly. A hold" button was also added to retain the different effects throughout the session or until its release, which can also be triggered at any point of play.

I overlooked these for a long time. I got the Denon 1000's under the impression that they played mp3 discs but that turned out to be a misunderstanding. I didn't want to spend CDJ 1000 money so I went to get what I thought was the next level down, the 800's. That's when another DJ suggested I give the 400's a shot. USB port for a flash drive (not on the 800's) effects like a flanger (jet), wah and transform and the seldom used but available bubble scratch (also not on the 800's), all in a smaller package for less money. The 800's do have the adjustable brake, a feature not found on the 400's, but the 400's have a "roll" feature that works even better.

I've had my 400's for a year now and I still love them. In the past I've had laptops fail and external hard drives crash on me. Now I play all of my music from flash drives and play every weekend with no problem.

I am an industry veteran and I'd tell anyone in the market for a media player to check these out. Sure you could spend a lot more money, but why?

I switched from the CDJ-1000 to the CDJ-400 (and DJM-400) last November. After using these for a year, I can happily say that I would highly recommend them to anybody interested in DJing. They are PACKED with features; things that Pioneer didn't HAVE to include, but they did. On top of that these are compatible with Pioneer's "DJS" DJ Software!

FEATURES:
Compact size, full of features. +/- 100% pitch adjustment & Master Tempo (allows the tempo to be sped up or slowed down while keeping track's original pitch). CD/Vinyl Modes allowing the tracks to be "scratched" as well as switches between the onboard effects like. Seamless looping with loop effects. Multi function jog wheel scratch/break and pitch adjust, also can be used to "fast forward" through a track or CD to quickly find a what you're looking for. USB Connectivity to your iPod, memory stick, external hard drive, or PC (via DJS software or other MIDI enabled DJ software). Reads CD and MP3 CD audio. Navigating through digital music libraries is made simple through the use of the multi-function knob. Tracks names and information highly visible on easy to read display including a visual representation of track. My favorite feature is the jog wheel illumination halo which has several different patterns that give a visual representation of the track's movement. Also has stereo RCA and Digital Coaxial Outputs.

PROS:
AMAZING value! You get tons of features that you wouldn't expect to find in a Pioneer player of this price. USB sticks and hard drives mean not having to bring CDs to the gig with you, and not having to rely on a computer means less of a chance for equipment failure! Very easy to use an intuitive design which takes absolutely no time to master. Smaller footprint than CDJ 800-2000, if space is an issue.

Verified Purchase
I bought these over a year and a half ago and I still have fun with them. No problems what so ever. Although you have to update the firmware every once in a while but thats very easy to do. I would not recommend hooking them up to a computer or ipod simply because they do not function as well in full DJ mode. You cannot easily rewind using ipod or computer on the decks and sometimes they freeze for a few seconds. It is best to burn cd's into WAV files for best results or MP3 320k/b if you have to. But if your a 'torrent dj' I would try something more compatible with computers such as the mk2000 or one of the other pioneer cdjs. These are fairly old now, and although they are a great value they are not top of the line anymore and won't keep up over the years IMO.
