Pioneer announces CDJ-2000 Nexus

Music stored inside Wi-Fi/USB-connected iPhone/iPod touch/iPad devices can be transmitted to the CDJ-2000nexus using the iOS version of Rekordbox for DJ play. The touch panel displays of iPads, etc. can be used for intuitive music selection with controls that users will already be familiar with.

This and slip mode, quantized syncing of tracks and easier looping tools open up a lot of new possibilities for “hardware” DJ’s. The best demo video is the one with Eats Everything.

It’s interesting to see that computer technology and DJ hardware is growing closer and closer together. There are many digital only DJ solutions, but with technology like slip mode, Pioneer is doing things that are currently not possible with Traktor or time-code setups.

I would love to get my hands on a few of these, but they are way too expensive to justify a purchase for home use.
