Pioneer DJ has just announced the CDJ-3000, the latest upgrade to their flagship media player. The player, which is also available in white, features an enhanced processor, key sync and key shift features, an improved jog wheel, and more. The player’s nine-inch, high-resolution touch screen features touch preview and touch cue functions along with stacked waveform and three-band waveform views (three-band waveform view works with tracks analyzed by rekordbox).
Alongside the media player, Pioneer DJ has also re-released the four-channel DJM-900NXS2-W mixer.
The workshop, which will take place on August 18, will cover the fundamentals of DJing utilizing the Beatsource LINK streaming service and Pioneer DJ rekordbox performance software. It will be hosted by Crossfader’s Jamie Hartley, DJcity’s Mojaxx, and Pioneer DJ’s Pulse.
Topics to be discussed include getting DJ software, finding music, setting cue points, and mixing tracks. There will also be a raffle.
Space is limited, so RSVP now before it fills up.

The latest update to Serato DJ Pro has arrived and includes support for the Pioneer DJ DJM-V10 mixer. With Serato DJ Pro 2.3.7 and a Serato DJ Club Kit license or subscription, DJs can fully tap into the capabilities of the six-channel mixer.
By using Serato DJ Pro or Serato DVS, DJs are able to control up to four decks, while the mixer offers a number of ways to creatively sculpt your sound including four-band EQ, filters, and effects.
Serato’s Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren says “The Pioneer DJ DJM-V10 gives professional DJs all the flexibility and creativity they need. It’s the first 6-channel mixer supported in Serato, and we’re excited for DJs to be able to add extra instruments and dimensions to their set, while keeping control over the 4 decks in Serato DJ Pro.”
