The Pioneer DDJ-FLX4
The Pioneer DDJ-FLX4 is a new entry-level DJ controller that uses many of the features of the DDJ-400 DJ controller. However, its user-friendly layout is designed to make it easy for the DJ to learn.
Unlike the DDJ-400 which is limited to Pioneer’s rekordbox, you actually have a choice of DJ software with which to mix music. Additionally, you can use rekordbox’s free Performance mode on Mac and Windows systems, but in early 2023, rekordbox for iOS and Android is getting a major update. You will be able to use the DDJ-FLX4 with your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad or Android tablet!
Meanwhile, Serato DJ Lite comes free with the DDJ-FLX4, and you can upgrade to Serato DJ Pro by purchasing a license or subscribing. In the end, you can play the tracks of your the computer Hard disk or tracks from TIDAL, Beatport, Beatsource and SoundCloud Go+ (paid subscriptions may be required).
The DDJ-FLX4 is on sale for $299.
The Pioneer DDJ-FLX6-GT 4
The DDJ-FLX6-GT is a 4-channel DJ controller that replaces the DDJ-FLX6 controller. The new iteration brings a new design, a new color scheme and support for Virtual DJ!
The new look of the DDJ-FLX6-GT and its full size jog wheels with their graphite color, metallic texture and rubber coating on their outer rings give the new controller a bold new feel and improved playability. And the rest of the controller also has a fancy new design with a matte gray color all over its body.
Like the DDJ-FLX4, the FLX6-GT lets you connect to a variety of software. You will have access to the free version of Virtual DJ and free compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro.
However, you can use the Virtual DJ software with the original DDJ-FLX6 DJ controller by updating the v of the controller to the latest version.
Finally, you can also use the Native Instruments TRAKTOR PRO 3 DJ controller with the DDJ-FLX4 & DDJ-FLX6-GT 4, but you will need to download the necessary mapping files (TSI file).
The DDJ-FLX6-GT is available now for $649.
Access premium audio samples at the best price on the market. For as little as $2.99 per month, you can download royalty-free one-shots, loops, sound effects, and full sample packs from top producers.
