The DDJ-400 is an ideal piece of gear for first-time DJs. Its controls enable you to easily learn the basics, plus it?s packed with features that will help you develop your skills. The controller is compatible with the new Tutorial feature in rekordbox dj, which explains basic equipment operation step by step. Even if you?ve never ventured behind the decks before, you can learn how to DJ. Thanks to the lightweight and portable design, you can take the DDJ-400 to friends? houses to practice together or bring it to parties and small venues to perform. And if you want to take mixing to the next level, you?ll feel at home in the club DJ booth because the DDJ-400 inherits design traits from our professional range. The layout of dedicated play/pause and cue buttons, Beat FX, CDJ-style looping controls and more is inherited from our NXS2 set-up.
