    The new Pioneer DDJ-400 controller is a fantastic DJ controller for DJs of all levels to mix on a compact, affordable system with the familiarity of a typical CDJ & mixer setup you'd find in the DJ booth. The controller comes bundled with a full license for RekordBox DJ so you can start DJing in no time. The controller is bus powered and features a built-in soundcard for complete "plug'n'play" operation, making it extremely portable and easy to set up.

    The DDJ-400 is the ideal controller for DJs starting out, with the controls allowing you to learn the basic skills on a deck which mirrors a professional DJ setup.

    The Pioneer DDJ-400 is compatible with the new Tutorial feature in RekordBox DJ which explains basic equipment operation step by step for efficient learning. A great way to learn to DJ even for the complete beginner.

    The layout of the DDJ-400 is intended to resemble a traditional Pioneer CDJ player and DJM mixer setup. The jog wheels are raised with finger indents to resemble that of the flagship CDJ2000 NXS2 players. With loop controls, play and cue buttons in the same positions you would normally find them.

    The mixer section is laid out more like a standalone DJM unit with the same style knobs and layouts, with the real advantage being the effects control section. The most iconic part of any DJM mixer through time has been the effects on and off button which is also found here. The effects on the software are selected using a simple button, then the parameters and effects mix are controlled but standard rotary controls.

    Main controls have the standard features of a DJ controller with 16 performance pads with modes including Pioneer's Keyboard mode allowing you play a cue point using the pads as a keyboard. Other modes include Sampler, beat jump and Pad FX. There is also the welcome addition of a large pitch fader with greater range for more precise pitch control.
