    This is a great mixer. Im very glad i sent the x-1600 back and purchased this 900. Its a huge leap from the 700, and possibly pioneers most well constructed mixer. It feels great, and the usb port allows you to do a great many things by allowing you FULL access to the sound card. (looking at you denon) My only two complaints are the lack of a high quality scratch fader (innofader pro in a cheap unmark m series before this, so i guess I’m spoiled there..) and also the crossfader is part of the entire channel fader unit. however elliot has stated that they have constructed an innofader plate for the 900, so they are working on it. If i get an innofader in this baby the game is over. Just so you brand haters know, this mixer does not “feel” cheap, it is the pinnacle of club mixers, and is designed in such a way that it will last for years and years. Thank you so much for a great product, and a huge leap from the other dim series mixers.

    one question…could be a silly one.

    will the effects be quantized if you use it with Traktor?

    • PioneerProDJ

      If you meant the external effects, quantize will not work (for now)

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Emrah-Gokce-Bayram/523322983 Emrah Gokce Bayram

    A Traktor kontrol s4 would offer more functionality. Dont need to spend 6 grants (2 cdj plus nexus) for these.

    People complain about the price of pioneer products but they are only that high because the whole of the industry’s hardware is overpriced and DJ’s are mugs and pay it. The DJM 900 nexus most probs only cost a couple of hundred dollars to produce in china. Dj’s put brands of equipment on high pedestal’s and in turn force prices up ourselves.

    A lot of the hardware we use is made with old hi fi technology and midi is 70′s technology but has been marketed as something new to DJ’s

    Dj’s get ripped off but we also don’t do ourselves any favours by getting out there and trying cheaper equipment from lesser known company’s that do the same job if not better some times.

    Internet shopping and the closure of record and equipment stores is making it increasingly difficult for people to try equipment that might be more suited to there style of DJ before they part with cash.

    There is a lot of great equipment out there that is made to the same standards as more expensive equipment out there at the moment that is getting overlooked.

    If we all use so called industry standard’s we will all start sounding the same.

    Pioneer and Traktor sell more than Serato and Rane worldwide. It is rare to find a Rane mixer installed in any venues in Europe.

    Traktor and serato users seem to be divided in terms of what music genres the user plays. In Europe electronic music is more popular and in America hip hop and r n b , traktor is more aimed at electronic dance music and serato at hip hop.

    you will find different equipment in venues depending on what the music policy is.

    The 900 nexus is aimed at replacing the 800 in clubs. For home use i would recommend a korg zero 4 , feature packed mixer that does more than the 900. they can be picked up cheap of ebay, i bought one for 350.00 GBP = 565 USD last year.

    The 900 is no good as a midi controller because of its lack of free knobs and sliders and there limited movements. You end up loosing some of the mixers basic functions when used as a midi controller especially when using DVS.

    another problem with the mixer is the lack of control with the fx , some of them are very harsh sounding and its all or nothing. A lot of the big clubs these days with expensive soundsytems are being advised by sound engineers not to use pioneer as there is no way of limiting the fx which can damage speakers.

    No real advantage of getting this mixer unless you have the new cdj’s to get all the features.

    I rate it 7/10

    • MisterDJ

      You where talking about the sound engineers advising not to use Pioneer.. but I believe we CAN change the FX with the DJM-2000s right? so that would be a better choice then? Am i rght?

  • Piopro

    I like the nexus a lot more sensible to the djm that was released a few months back but again this just seem another expensive hardware that not ever1 can afford ($2000… :( , my old djm600 was only £600), SO I got my eyes on traktor 2 for around $200 mark, that seems to have a lot of fx that are similar and that have been mentioned in the nexus for me a little creative mapping 0n My DDM & traktor 2 and pretty sure I’ll have a similar if not an almost exact sound to that…

  • iDJsounds

    Not sure why the guy on this video mentioned pioneer mixers are in 80% of the clubs? In Houston most clubs use the Rane 57SL mixer mainly because of the video capability. Until Tracktor gets video support Serato mixers will still be the industry standard in my opinion.

    • http://www.djpc3.com DJ PC3

      Every club in Chicago has DJM-800s, and every place I’ve performed nationally has had them too (though I’ve never performed in Texas). So I get what your saying. The few places that I know that do video (as well as just basic music) usually make the DJ bring their own set-up… but on those guys do get paid more.

      But I am right there with you…. NATIVE INSTRUMENTS, PLEASE BRING VIDEO!!!!

    I agree that the Xone:92 is much better sounding, I used to own both the 800 and the 92 and did A/B comparisons both on my at home system with active mackie production monitors as well as the funktion one sound system I use at my clubs.

    The Xone has better definition by far. The lows and mids are not muddy compared to the 800 as well. I would possibly attribute this to the 4 band EQ the 92 has plus the superior pedigree of mixer technology by Allen & Heath.

    That being said, the install of choice by a lot of clubs will probably be this mixer and an SL4 box hooked up to it.

    The NI Traktor folks are out of luck though on the ease of transition if this set up becomes pervasive because they don’t have two USB ports to do the switch like the SL4 box has.

    • Guest

      This is not comparable in my opinion

    • Mr. Smith

      im gonna have to say that i purchased an x-1600 before getting the 900. the x1600 by denon is really nice, but the usb connectivity does not support using the sound card any way you want (i.e. recording or playing other computer software through the mixer,) and usb func is really quite limited. the 1600′s  channel faders are a deal breaker. DEAL BREAKER!!!! everything on the 1600 is top quality (including the alps channel faders) However, the channel faders are only held into the mixer by 1 tiny screw on the top and bottom of each fader, and these screws have about 3 threads. after less than a week, the 1600′s 3rd channel dropped straight into the mixer. i opened a 99$ numark and even those channel faders were secured better. i was very disappointed to send it back, as it sounds great and is feature rich. but no, the pioneer 900 nexus blows it completely out of the water in all aspects. (except for the cross fader, which the flex fader  was great and i miss the sharp cut in time for scratching.) so no, as someone who has had both, the denon is great if you are not gonna use it much,are not going to travel with it, are not going to let other dj’s play on it,  and are very very careful cueing tracks. (which i was not rough, like i said less than a week) The x-1600 is a mixer i really wanted to love, and denon, i am extremely disappointed you would try to save a few dollars by putting high quality components with very cheap manufacturing. 

  • Roman Seoul

    This is by far the most useful mixer I can ever want. All the TSP certification, MIDI control, and name brand all in one package. However, the Denon DN-X1600 did all this a year ago and is also TSP certified. My big concern is this ridiculously huge price for the name AND how most headliners would want to solely play on a Pioneer mixer.

    From a promoter standpoint, I’d want to own a mixer that would be universally accepted by all DJ’s we book. But as a DJ myself, I’d actually want the DN-X1600 for it’s simplicity, capability, affordability, and ease of use for anyone who’s new to it. I truly feel that the Denon mixer is more functional and is superior to the DJM-900. BUT, my main concern is if the Denon mixer will be accepted among my peers and regional DJ’s I book.

    I really, really want your feedback and opinions on this! Please help!

      Real reply to this: unfortunately, artists are touchy. If you’re booking big names, a lot of times they’ll specify their specific mixer in their rider (as I’m sure you know). Even more unfortunately, as a promoter you’re in no position to challenge Pioneer’s dominance in the industry, whether or not you believe the Pioneer mixer is best. A few ways to get around having to go with the Pioneer:
      1) Get the 850 and the Denon. Not that the 850 is a huge reduction in price, but who knows, maybe you can find a used, good quality Denon and/or 850.
      2) Rent an 850 or 900 when you know the artist in question demands one. But that option is impractical.
      Of course, you could always just get the Denon and tell people to live with it, but that’s bad business. Unless you have the cash for both, it’s looking like Pioneer’s marketing strategy has steamrolled you :/

    seriously not impressive! for one- the price is out of the ball park! they must be having problems or getting greedy over there! two- most new mixers these days have sound cards (may or may not be used for scratch though, so i guess thats good!) three- its really just an upgrade! four- its not an industry standard yet haha five- if your using your laptop or whatever, why do you need four or so new effects? six- i dont get the complaing about the usb point? good they added it! about time! but if they steering toward digital djing for the future… add more and add the new standard! seven- for 2000 dollars i would at least expect, tried and tested sound card, true balanced outputs, sturdy button and knobs, midi recieve functions, hid support, improved beat detection (thats what they are selling you), improved sound quality, and better customer service and support! haha

    i know the mixer is the centre of what we do, but we make/create the atmosphere, not the mixer! until there is something to orgasm about, a new tecyhnolgy seen no where else, or a full happy package…i wont be spending that much on something that most people really dont need!

    that said i understnad alot of clubs will jump on this! especially if starting out to attract new dj’s or new trends! :) happy buying

      smart thinking Alex, I encountered the same with the Denon 3700′s that i almost bought to be able to switch from Midi to CD. Guess what it takes 10 sec + for the unit to switch. So this was no option . I think you made your point , the easy looking DJ switch will pause the sound…..Plugging in on the unused line input will only take a second.

      Bring a cd with a selection of tunes or transition fx when you go on. While that’s palying or when you’re ready make the usb change!!! Too easy!! Or load your music or transition into an ipod, itouch or nano and plug that into another line out channel and make the change. Again too easy.
      I’m not poking fun at you. I’ve been there so I always carry and Ipod with some cool transition stuff on there. Stuff that doesn’t require bpm matching!! Now, all is too easy!!!
      Plus when it’s busy, I like for people to know that the next dj has come on. So, for me some sweet transition fx works-from ambient to some off beat drumming ( dj tools kinda stuff works nicely) or any crazy shit that fits the moment. I have a variety of different ones so as not to spoil the mood of the room. I keep them on a playlist called TRANSITIONS in my itouch and nano which has a selection to fit any situation!! Slap that baby on, set you shtuff up, do the USB dance and in a few minutes you’re good to go.
      Too easy!

      i have read the replies below but will the mixer do the change without stopping the sound. In my opinion and logical seen the internal sound card will have to switch from analog line to digital usb-midi in. I strongly doubt that that will happen without interuption. Just my thoughts. like man dingo’s solution and i have a itouch that i hardly use.. thnx for this advice. I hope pioneer or some DJ that has tested this unit can tell more

    I’ve been to clubs where you can hear the difference between Pioneer and A&H mixers. I am A&H for life!!!

    One example would be Club Midi in Cluj Napoca, Romania which has a Funktion One sound system and most of the time they use a A&H Xone:92 and it sounds FANTASTIC and well rounded – a pleasure to listen to, but when Steve Lawler, Satoshi Tomie, James Zabiela or some other “paid off” djs come along, they bring in a DJM 800 and it sounds terribly digital – rough peaks, very very rough on the ears.

    Being friends with the club owners, i always ask them what mixer they have installed whenever i suspect that they’ve changed it. If they tell me that the Pioneer mixer is installed, I immediately put my club ear plugs in my pocket because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to stand more than 20 minutes of that rough sound :(.

    This is great for ppl spinning timecode, just walk in and plug in your USB! No more setting up cables in the back I think is a huge benefit. The effects are nice, but with an x1 or 2 you’ve got that all covered and more…..

    Awesome! Just Purely Awesome! But wayyyyyyy outta my price range. And I am so glad to see NI teaming up with a reputable mixer company. Can’t wait for this to become standard, but I know it take forever for most ignorant club owners to realize the potential and upgrade their units… Might have a few “accidents” at the places I spin at to help them intergrate new hardware

    I pray this mixer becomes standard…. not having to bring a traktor box??? and being able to say “your shits too complicated to setup” to the serato guys… I will never buy one.. but i hope every venue in my city does… plug and play traktor would be great.

    hey folks, do you think such mixer is state of the art?
    on the one hand live and traktor provide much more effects, on the other hand even if you are familiar with the DJM-900 you can’t take advantage of your skills when your mixer in the club is a XONE XX for example,

    The new standard setup in clubs will now be a DJM 900, 4 CDJ 2000s and a Rane SL4 box and I for one will NOT be complaining! You’ll be able to use it regardless of whatever software you may be using, no fuss, and that’s nothing but a good thing for us DJs.

    Great addition to the DJM family. Looks like the faceplace over the xfader is full-body though. Going to be much more difficult to install my innofader. But sick union of the 800 and the 2000. Can’t wait to play with one!

    This is another great product from Pioneer, pricey but a top rank mixer.
    I wish to see tutorials available on download showing how to use the Nexus’ effects and its differents settings with the major dvs (Traktor, Serato, Torq) and daw (Pro Tools, Reason, Ableton Live, Logic).

    O you geniuses at pioneer just love put to stuff on the top of the mixer don’t you. I really wonder how long that USB port is gonna last.

    Don’t get me wrong, it looks good but its nothing real crazy. Spose its what was expected from pioneer…just another update, and an over priced one at that.

    Nice mixer, but I’d rather have the Allen & Heath Xone:DB4 for that kind of scratch…

    • DaRkFaDeR

      thats prob because ur a shitty house dj or sumthing that dusnt know or appreciate the titeness of the pioneer mixers, simple

      • Anonymous

        Or it could be that I prefer Allen & Heath and the features of the DB4 over Pioneer, but I guess your personal opinion of the “titeness” of pioneer mixers is superior to anyone else’s opinion.

      • Po Pimpin

        AH is right on par in sound and build quality with Pioneer. I can guarantee you have never even owned an AH mixer. If you had you would not make an idiotic comment like that in a public forum. One more thing: SPELL CHECK is your friend. derrrrr

    • James

      Agreed, would have been nice to have more than just 1 LAN connection on it. But I just went out and bought an 8-port LAN which is even more handy than having 4 LAN ports built in!!! The DJM-2000 has 6 built in which works fine, and I wouldn’t recommend only a 5 port hub, unless you’re 100% only going to use 2 CDJ’s.

      I use the 8 port and connect the DJM-900, 2 CDJ-2000′s, 2 CDJ-900′s, and 2 computers. Works perfect. ;)

  • JD

    Is the USB connection on top near the mic? So a USB wire would stick out and then over to your laptop? Not crazy about that…

    • StrangeMatterDJ

      There’s a reason for that though. If the mixer is part of a club install, the last thing you want to be doing before you play is fiddling around the back of the mixer, in the dark, looking for the USB port. Having it on top is gonna make DJ transitions much easier.
      Personally though, I think there should have been two ports side-by-side like on the SL4 box.

      For me, TS Certification is the reason. And the smaller footprint of the 900.

      Although I do prefer a lot of elements of the I/O layout on the 2000. I don’t like cables poking out the face of my mixers…
