Beatsource Tech: CDJ-3000 Long-Term Review: Still The King?

It’s been almost two years since Pioneer DJ released their latest flagship media player, the CDJ-3000. But with the advent of new competition in the market, their dominance of the world’s DJ booths was no longer a certainty this time around. On the new episode of Beatsource Tech, Mojaxx reviews the players two years in, and examines whether the company has done enough to retain the “club standard” title in 2022.

The Silent Cue feature has been found in Serato DJ Pro for quite some time, but it has never been midi-mappable from within the software interface. This means that not every user had access to it, unless they wanted to get into some midi XML file trickery.

But in the new 2.6.0 public beta, Silent Cue now can now be midi mapped like any other control, so if you haven’t tried it – now is the time. In this episode of Beatsource Tech, Mojaxx talks through how to map it, and why he likes it so much.

A question often asked by some Serato DJ Pro users is how they can get their crates, cues and loops into Rekordbox. Not because they want to switch, but so they can do a gig or two playing just off USB drives on CDJs. On the new episode of Beatsource Tech, we look at Mojaxx‘s favorite tool for doing that job (and a lot more besides): DJ Conversion Utility.

Afrobeats and Dance added as Main Genres on DJcity

At DJcity, we are always working to make sure that the way our record pool functions reflects the needs of our users. Therefore in our latest update, we switched up the main music categories on our website.

Firstly, instead of having house as a main music category, we now have dance, which incorporates genres like house, trap, dubstep, and drum & bass. If you spin electronic music that is the category for you.

In a reflection of what our DJ community is seeking in 2022, we have removed reggae as a main music category and put afrobeats in its place. If you are a fan of reggae, dancehall, or house, don’t worry, we still have just as much music in those genres as we always had. They can be accessed via the genres tab or by clicking on a music tag anywhere on the site.

If you are an existing user, we hope you find these changes useful, and if you aren’t, head over to djcity.com now to see how you could join.

On the new episode of Beatsource Basics, we turn it over to you, asking you to sound off about your preferred way of doing things in the comments, so that the feedback from the community will provide valuable insights for new, up-and-coming DJs.
