THE PROFESSIONAL DJ MIXER
That Push DJ Sound to The Limit
Auto BPM Counter - Only From Pioneer
Let the digital readout confirm what you already know by ear. The
Beats-Per-Minute Counter measures the BPM of virtually all kinds of
dance music, enabling you to check the tempo at a glance. Linking
widely differing types of music is easier than ever with the Auto
Auto BPM & Effects
A single repeat of 1/2, 3/4 and 1/1 beat music can be overlaid over a track. For example, with 1/2 Beat Delay, four beats will be increased to eight, while using the 3/4 Beat Delay produces a "leap sound" effect.
Repeatedly overlaying beats of 1/2, 3/4 and 1/1 is simple. Cutting in 1/1 beat Echo can create an intriguing fade to the beat; applying it to the mike causes microphone output to be reproduced repeatedly to the same beat.
The left-right balance can be changed automatically to the rhythm as rapidly as you like. Auto Pan can do rhythmic switches too quick for human operators.
Switching to the Flanger effect produces synthesizer tones quickly and easily.
Other Effect Features
PITCH SHIFTER The Pitch Shifter corrects
for changes in pitch within a range of +/- 1 octave when using analog
turntables or other vendors' CD players. Used with the

A Great Match For The
Fader Start Play
Connecting the DJM-500 to the CDJ Series
allows you to take advantage of Fader Start Play; by increasing the
Fader on the mixer, the player will automatically override the Pause
control and start the music immediately. Fader Start Play also works
during Cross Fading, an industry first that brings out the best in
Fader Back Cue Play
When the DJM-500
is used with the CDJ Series (excluding CDJ-50OG and CDJ-500), the
Fader or Cross Fader controls can also return you automatically to
a designated cue point if desired. By fading Cross Fader back and
forth or Fader up and down quickly, you can give the "essence" of
scratching a certain point on a vinyl record.
