LONG BEACH, Calif. -- September 5, 2013

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division
continues to expand its innovative DJ product offerings with the introduction
of the DJM-900SRT Serato DJ Edition high performance digital mixer. Designed
especially for use with Serato® DJ software, the new mixer eliminates the need
for an outboard sound card when used in conjunction with multiple players or
turntables. In addition to compatibility with the software, the mixer inherits
the same features offered by Pioneer’s highly acclaimed and industry standard
DJM-900nexus mixer including onboard effects and high-performance components
for intuitive operability and excellent sound quality.

“There has been tremendous growth in the number of Serato software users and
the market has been waiting for a Pioneer mixer built with Serato
functionality,” said David Arevalo, director of marketing, Professional Sound
and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The DJM-900SRT is the
ideal mixer for DJs who want to move into a more professional setup using
separate players but still want that software functionality found in a
controller setup that uses a laptop.”

Variety of Effects

  *Internal High-Quality Soundcard – The DJM-900SRT is equipped with an
    internal Serato certified soundcard providing the user with Serato DJ
    software control by simply connecting the mixer to a laptop via a USB
    cable. The included Control Disc^1 for CD or Vinyl enables mixing and
    scratching with up to four CDJs or turntables without the need for
    external hardware.
  *Automatic Beat Sync – With Serato DJ compatibility, the mixer captures the
    BPM of the music and beat location information, automatically correcting
    any mismatches between beats resulting in effects that are perfectly
    synced with the beat of the music.
  *Creative Sound Effect Functions

       *Sound Color FX – The mixer includes six types of Sound Color FX for
         numerous audio effect combinations and arrangements that can be added
         in to music currently playing with a simple twist of the knobs.
       *Beat Effect – A total of 13 channel-assignable effects are available
         that can be added by the user through a selectable knob located on
         the right side of the mixer.
       *X-Pad – A touch screen control bar that enables quick access and
         manipulation of the thirteen built-in beat effects. With a touch
         and/or slide of the X-Pad control, the user can change the parameters
         of each effect for further creativity in performances.

Advanced Design

  *Excellent Sound Quality – The DJM-900SRT is built with the same
    high-quality input and output circuits as Pioneer’s flagship DJM-2000nexus
    to achieve the most accurate audio reproduction from connected sources.
    The 32-bit digital-to-analog converter supports all outputs of the mixer,
    including the master audio outputs and booth outputs as well as
    headphones. Additionally, the built-in high performance 32-bit digital
    signal processor (DSP) suppresses digital and analog circuit noise by way
    of high quality balanced hybrid operation amps and full balanced output
    circuits.
  *High performance channel faders (MAGVEL Cross Fader)– The slide mechanism
    supports the fader knobs with two metal shafts for both longevity and
    smooth operability while the mechanism’s design minimizes the effects of
    moisture or dust particles on the mixer’s performance capabilities. With
    Pioneer’s P-LOCK Fader Caps, the fader channel and crossfader knobs (caps)
    are locked, preventing them from physically slipping off during heavy use.
    Furthermore, DJs can adjust the operational load, fader curve and cut lag
    to suit their preferences.
  *PRO DJ LINK – Via an Ethernet (LAN) cable, the mixer can quickly link to
    the latest Pioneer PRO DJ LINK compatible CDJs or a personal computer
    running Pioneer’s rekordbox™ software, giving users fast access to a
    song’s beats per minute and beat location information, resulting in a
    precise beat matching capability^2. Additionally, the built-in quantize
    mode compensates for Beat Effect operation timing errors automatically, so
    effects are matched perfectly.

Feature Packed

  *Peak Limiter – The DJM-900SRT is equipped with a peak limiter to minimize
    distortion on the master output, even at high volumes.
  *Assignable MIDI Functionality  – Nearly all knobs and buttons operation
    information can be assigned to control other devices. The mixer can also
    be used as a MIDI controller.
  *MIDI LFO –  The built-in MIDI LFO function controls external devices such
    as effecters, and the MIDI signal output changes at beat-by-beat
    intervals.
  *Switching 3-Band EQ/Isolator – Each channel of the mixer is equipped with
    a switchable 3-band EQ (+6dB to -26dB) and 3-band Isolator (+6dB to -∞dB).
  *Auto Standby – The mixer automatically switches to standby mode when
    signal inputs have not been detected for a pre-set period of time.

The DJM-900SRT is a multi-functional mixer that can accommodate various types
of DJs including both traditional and Serato DJ software users, ideal for a
single-DJ set-up in a venue. Additionally, Pioneer’s recently announced
DDJ-SP1 sub-controller is a perfect companion to the DJM-900SRT to offer
Serato DJ users with additional audio samples and effects for enhanced
performances.
