The most versatile DJ Controller in the DDJ Range, with compatibility with both rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro.
Overview By GAK
The DDJ-FLX6 is a 4 channel DJ Controller with full-sized jog wheels and compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro.
The Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX6 has brand new features that allow you to take your mixing to the next level. If you are a DJ that needs a controller to suit any musical application and slot in a mix of different setups, the DDJ-FLX6 is the one for you.
Laid out in the easily recognisable and widely used Club DJ format, the DDJ-FLX6 is comfortingly familiar to DJs that may have upgraded from beginner systems and first-time DJs will be able to transfer to top tier DJ setups easily.
Plug-and-Play With Serato DJ and rekordbox
One of the major benefits of the DDJ-FLX6 is that it is a DJ Controller made for both Serato DJ and rekordbox users. Pioneer DJ has made the experience of using a DDJ-FLX6 truly plug-and-play. Simply plug the included USB cable into your chosen laptop and you will be able to use the in-built Audio/MIDI interface. Better yet, it is USB Bus-Powered, limiting too many messy cables.
The Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX6 works out of the box with rekordbox, as the software will unlock all the relevant features for that controller. For Serato DJ Pro users, the DDJ-FLX6 comes with license keys for the FX Pack and Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Packs in the box, so you can get creative with advanced features, no matter which software you choose. The DDJ-FLX6 seamlessly slots into almost any workflow.
The DDJ-FLX6 is Pioneer DJ’s most affordable DJ Controller in the DDJ Range to feature full-sized jog wheels and 4-channels, making it the ideal unit for events DJ. The FLX6 also enables DJs to start feeling the benefits of lining up tracks with the same sized jog wheel as a flagship CDJ, like the CDJ-3000.
A major benefit of using a full-sized jog wheel is that feels you are “scratching” on a traditional turntable. With the help of a technology named Jog Cutter, you will be able to perform scratch patterns just like the pros.
When Jog Cutter is turned on via the dedicated button on the front panel, the jog wheel is split into 6 different sections. Each section will have a specific professional scratch effect applied to the last Hot Cue or Playback Position used on the deck.
In addition to the 6 different sections, you can choose between 10 different scratch pattern samples, which have been recorded by Professional Scratch DJs. This feature is perfect for the beginner or hobbyist DJ that has not yet mastered scratching and still wants to perform these sounds.
To help make your DJ mixing more creative, professional and smooth, the Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX6 features 8 different Merge Effects. Merge Effects allows you to add drama to your sets and easily mix different tracks, no matter the BPM or key.
When pressing the Merge Effects knob, your chosen effect will engage and respond in different intensity levels as you move the knob left or right. You can create more tension and energy in your sets by moving the knob at different speeds.
For Example: Simply specify which Merge Effects pattern you would like to use. One example would make the pitch of the track start to climb while a snare drum sample is triggered at shorter intervals, continuing to build until you’re ready to drop your next song.
When you press the knob again, the effect is released, the next track will play and, if you’ve chosen one in the settings, another sample will trigger. To end a track, you can simply hit play on the other deck to introduce the next song or genre of music.
Sample Scratch is a rekordbox specific Pad Mode that enables DJs to choose a sound that has been assigned to the sampler and load them directly into a deck. This is great for live remixes of a track or to add texture to the music.
In Serato DJ Pro, you can use Scratch Bank to trigger the samples whilst using the Performance Pads to achieve a similar result.
Placed at the very front of the unit is a Microphone Input, with its very own level control. Make announcements, hype up your crowd or MC over your mixes and command every performance.
Built For The Booth
The Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX6 is the perfect controller for the performing DJ, including a wide array of monitoring options. As well as a Headphone output, the DDJ-FLX6 features 2 pairs of RCA outputs, one for the Master and the other for Booth.
Having a Booth Output means that you can perform in a DJ Booth with speakers, so you can hear yourself and not compete with the front-of-house PA System. You can play loud and proud.
