  1. @32JSE he said he has lots of samples, or either he uses very low KPS tracks, but not sure why he would want that….

  2. tempo shift means that you can adjust the tempo (or bpm) of the song without effecting the pitch. sometimes when you try to match a slow hip hop track (75 bpm) with a pop track (110-115 bpm), the hip hop track will match, but sound really chipmunk like. tempo match allows you to match songs that you want to use without loosing (to an extent) the pitch of the track.

  3. i love my cdj 800s there reliable and good for scratching i can use these for 8 hours straight (i actualy have) i just purchased another pair of these 3 months back
    very good decks would recommend these to anyone. wait about another 2 months pioneer coming out with something better tho

  4. the master tempo locks the KEY of the tune not the pitch. it locks the KEY and lets you change the pitch while the key stays the same.

  5. Thanks for the tutorial, very useful. Just a note about the subject of increasing tempo without increasing pitch. It has a feature called pitch lock, which means the track can be sped up, but the actual pitch will not change. It's useful for speeding up slow tracks, ie hip hop funk, rnb etc without getting the helium vocal effect, hope this helps.

  6. i just looked in the booklet and saw that it has rca connectors so its fine:)dont laugh but its a JBSystems MX4 lol..thnx for the useful tutorial,its a weird feeling to say goodbye to vinyl in a way but as far as i can see it now those Pioneer cd-players are just incredible!i'll have to wait a week though,only one in stock:s but thnx again mate!

  7. As long as your mixer has RCA inputs it should be fine. If you only have 1/4 inch.. get some 1/4 to RCA converters, and there is no reason it wouldnt work 🙂 What kind of mixer do you have?

  8. thanks man,i have a question though,i just bought these 2 cd-players but now i wonder if it is compatible with my old mixer..i think it is ofcourse but i wanna know for sure..greetz Remy

  9. if u can afford them, i wouldnt hesitate in going for the 800's, i wish i had the luxury of learning on a set of Pioneers =)!!

    but then again, if u discover ur crap at it or u dont like it its a bit of a waste of money, thats why people start with cheap products.
    I'd just go for a set of these bad boys….

  10. I'm picking up a pair of 800's sometime next month, i'm tired of ordering vinyl online and waiting 15 day.

    Thanks for the video, now i know what im getting.

  11. I personally favor the 800's. But you cant really answer that question, its like asking, what do you recommend, apples or oranges? Both the 800 and the 400 are great, just depends on what you feel comfortable with, or need. I personally dont need the EFX on the 400's, so i stick to the 8's

  12. Serato is just a source. You still need either a turntable or CD player to play whatever tracks are loaded into Serato. Serato with CDJ's is just about one of the most epic setups!

  13. just to clarify the master tempo for you and other viewers….

    when 'master tempo' is engaged, moving the pitch fader will increase/decrease the BPM as it would normally, however the 'pitch' of the actual song doesnt change, i.e, master tempo will prevent the 'chipmunk effect' on vocals if the BPM has to be increased a lot to facilitate beatmatching…..

    hope that helps!!!

  14. aye, the mixer was a piece of junk, i tossed it out about a week after this video. Just needed something to hold me over

  15. If you are going to make a purchase based around the scratch feature, you will have better luck with the 800. The firmware is the same for both, however just the size and feel of the 800 is more natural – the 400 is more compact, but im sure some might prefer that over the larger, all prefrence i guess. If money is not an issue, and you have to pick between the two SOLELY for scratching, go with the 800
