Pioneer DJ just released a silver version of the Pioneer DJ DDJ-400, the DDJ-400-S. At the same time, the DDJ-400 is now compatible with Algoriddim’s djay Pro for Mac and Windows.
This means that from now on, you can stream tracks from Spotify Premium with the DDJ-400 (and the DDJ-400-S) using djay Pro, which is great if you already have a DDJ-400 and a Spotify Premium subscription.
If you are considering the DDJ-400, the offer just got better, as the DDJ-400 was already a great entry-level controller for Rekordbox DJ. With its club-style layout (the effect section is integrated into the mixer, much like on professional mixers), large jog wheels, 8 performance pads per deck and high-quality build, it’s a very good way to get started.
If you want to see what other options there are out there, check out our beginner DJ controller guide.
The buttons and knobs on the DDJ-400 are arranged in the same way as those on our club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 set-up.
- Player sections: Get familiar with jog wheels, play/pause and cue buttons, tempo sliders, a loop section and cue/loop call buttons just like the ones on the CDJ-2000NXS2.
- Mixer section: Use the trim and EQ knobs, and the headphone cue buttons, in exactly the same way as those on the DJM-900NXS2.
- Built-in sound card (audio interface): Plug and play by simply connecting the controller to your PC/Mac using a single USB cable.
- Mic input circuit: clear audio without distortion, even with high input level.
- USB bus-powered: No need to plug into the mains.
Grab handles on both sides: Easy to carry.
- Class-compliant: No need to install a driver.
