Playback from CD-R/W or Via Handy USB!
Modern DJs can't go wrong with the CDJ-400 from Pioneer Pro DJ. Not only can you pop in a CD-R or CD-RW and play back MP3s, you can also connect your USB music hard drive, USB flash drive, or USB MP3 player and play back files. The Pioneer Pro DJ CDJ-400 also adds another cool feature: scratch jog effects. You can get creative with Bubble, Trans, and Wah effects on the fly, using the "hold" button to keep the effects going as long as you want. Beyond all that, if you have DJ software you like to use, you can use the CDJ-400 as a native controller or MIDI controller.Pioneer Pro DJ CDJ-400 CD and USB MP3 Player at a Glance:

USB Integration and MP3 Playback
The Pioneer Pro DJ CDJ-400's features a simple and compact — yet elegant — design, with all of its various controls and features conveniently located directly on the top of the unit. There's a USB port on the face of the player that lets you play your MP3 music collection from thumb drives, MP3 players, or external hard drives. Plus, with the multi-function selector knob/button and its large, bright, dot-matrix LCD display, it's easy to locate and access your files. What's more, you can play back songs from CD and CD-R/RW through the CD slot with just the turn and press of the knob.
DJ Software Compatibility and MIDI Control
With more of today's DJs using different DJ software for their performances, the CDJ-400 is also equipped with a PC mode. In this mode, the CDJ-400 is a native controller for software such as Serato Scratch Live. For example, when you move the pitch slider on the CDJ-400, you can control the pitch slider on the computer software — and no timecode CD is required for audio control. The player can also act as a MIDI controller where you can assign virtually every button on the player to trigger functions inside your favorite software programs.
World's First Scratch Jog Effect
One very cool feature on the CDJ-400 is its scratching capability. In addition to traditional "vinyl" mode scratching, Pioneer Pro DJ implemented the World's First Scratch Jog Effect. Three highlighted buttons, each assigned to a special effect — Bubble, Trans, and Wah — creates unique scratching sound effects that you can enable on the fly. There's also a "hold" button to retain the different effects throughout the session or until its release, which can also be triggered at any point of play.
