Pioneer DJ Announces the New DJM-450!

Seamless Sets: Introducing the DJM-450

A Two-channel Mixer Inheriting Several Features from the Flagship DJM-900NXS2

Torrance, CA (September 8, 2016): A new two-channel mixer is joining the Pioneer DJ range: the DJM-450. Inheriting features and design elements from the flagship DJM-900NXS2, the DJM-450 is the ideal mixer to partner with XDJ-700 multiplayers or PLX-1000 turntables to create a professional-style set-up. It comes bundled with license keys for rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs (a $228.00 value) so you can DJ with tracks stored on your PC/Mac when using turntables and rekordbox control vinyl (sold separately). 

Mixing on the DJM-450 is seamless thanks to the smooth curves on the EQs and channel faders. The Magvel crossfader, inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, gives an accurate response and assured feel during complicated scratch techniques. Sound Color FX and Beat FX with parameter control also come from our flagship mixer, so you can add professional creative flair to your mixes. Warm, high-quality audio from both analog and digital sound sources is attributed to the 64-bit digital signal processor, which uses dithering technology. Additionally, the built-in sound card means you can connect the DJM-450 to your PC/Mac with a single USB cable and use the bundled rekordbox dvs application to control your digital tracks with turntables and rekordbox control vinyl (see more information below).

The DJM-450 will be available in the U.S. and Canada beginning December 2016, with a retail price of $699.00.


  1. Professional layout

Mixing on the DJM-450 feels instinctive thanks to the layout design, which inherits traits from the DJM-900NXS2 professional mixer.

  1. Smooth EQs, channel faders and Magvel crossfader

Precise, smooth mixes are a breeze using the EQs and channel faders, which feature curves equivalent to those on the DJM-900NXS2. The EQ curves give precision across the highs, mids and lows, and the isolator feature means you can eliminate each EQ band when you turn the knob all the way to the left. The channel fader curves give accuracy over long, smooth mixes, and the Magvel crossfader – also taken from the DJM-900NXS2 – is a dream to scratch on. Accurate and smooth, it is durable for more than 10 million movements.

  1. Professional FX with detailed control

Add professional FX to your mixes using the filter suite inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, including Sound Color FX, Beat FX and send/return:

  • Sound Color FX – just turn the knob to apply Dub Echo, Sweep, Noise and Filter.
  • Beat FX – add Delay, Echo, Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Flanger, Pitch and Roll in sync with the BPM.
  • Send/Return – connect apps in your mobile device via USB and use them alongside the DJM-450’s internal FX. Choose your preferred return type from Aux or Insert to create the sound you want.
  1. Bundled licenses for rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs

The DJM-450 comes with free license keys for our professional dj performance applications, rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs, so you can play digital tracks from your PC/Mac using turntables and control vinyl (sold separately). The mixer’s built-in sound card means you can connect to your computer using a single USB cable. 

How to use rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs:

  1. High-quality sound

Whether you’re playing from digital or analog sound sources, a warm, high-quality sound is created by the 64-bit digital signal processor using dithering technology.
