“Pioneer has always been about designing DJ products that encourage users to
explore their creativity,” said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager,
Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The
new DJM-750 offers endless effects with its Boost Color FX and Sound Color FX
features.

Multitude of Features

  *Boost Color FX – The new Boost Color FX enables users to change the
    parameter of an effect with the varying rotation speed of the integrated
    controller knob. The degree of the selected effect is intensified (i.e.,
    increase cut rate) the faster the knob is turned. The Boost Color FX knob
    can work on any of the integrated mixer effects and the feature includes
    four different types of effects, Filter, Crush, Noise and Jet.
  *Sound Color FX – The Sound Color FX offers four types of  effects (Filter,
    Crush, Noise, Jet) for more creative mixing options. Users also have the
    ability to switch between Sound Color FX and Boost Color FX to match the
    music playing.
  *Beat Effect – The Beat Effect function presents 13 different types of
    effects (Delay, Echo, Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Filter, Flanger, Phaser,
    Robot, Vinyl Brake <new>, Slip Roll, Roll, and Reverse Roll) that can be
    combined with Boost Color FX and Sound Color FX to create more than 100
    types of effects for extremely original remixes.

Superior Sound Quality

  *24bit/96kHz High-Performance USB Sound Card – The DJM-750 4-channel
    digital DJ mixer is designed with a built-in USB sound card that enables
    simultaneous input-output of stereo signals for up to four
    inputs/outputs^2 with no deterioration in sound quality.

       *The sound card supports three different sampling rates
         (96kHz/48kHz/44.1kHz) and ASIO/Core Audio standards, ideal for DJ
         play and music recording and production.
       *USB port, located on top of the mixer, enables quick connection of
         devices.
       *The signal output path from the mixer can be easily modified using
         its setup tool via a computer^3.

  *Sound Quality Design – The mixer produces clear and powerful audio using
    high quality components such as a 32-bit digital signal processor (DSP)
    and SEND/RETURN circuit parts, as well as a low-jitter crystal oscillator
    installed in the clock of its audio circuits, to deliver the most precise
    audio signals and accurate audio reproduction.

Additional Features

  *Information from operation of the device's knobs and buttons is
    transmitted to external DJ software and effectors, etc. as a MIDI^4
    signal, with a “Full Ensemble MIDI” function built in to enable
    simultaneous control of this device and other external devices.
  *Each channel is equipped with a switch-type 3-band equalizer (+6dB to
    -26dB) and 3-band isolator (+6dB to -∞dB).
  *Channel fader knobs and cross-fader knobs offer a “P-LOCK Fader Cap”
    applying a lock function to guard against accidental disconnection of
    knobs.
  *Auto Standby automatically senses active operation and the presence of
    input signals, switching to standby mode when a long period of input is
    not detected.

The DJM-750-K (black) and DJM-750-S (silver) are both available in June with a
suggested retail price of $1,199.00.
