Auto BPM Counter
The Beat-Per-Minute counter is capable of accurately measuring the BPIM of almost any kind of dance music automatically. This function includes a digital indication that allows you to confirm the tempo of the current selection at a glance and takes the guesswork out of comparing the beats of different selections. In addition, the DJM's BPM counter works equally well when monitoring CD player and other digital sources or analog sources such as a turntable.
Separate -26dB 3-Band EQ for Each Channel
The DJM-300S is equipped with separate 3-band (High/Mid/Low) EQ that allows the DJ to adjust the output of each channel independently at the turn of a dial. By enabling attenuation of up to -26dB, the system makes it possible to effectively silence unwanted channels or adjust each channel's output level exactly as desired. Pioneer has also included a separate +12dB boost capability for each channel for when you want to add emphasis to particular sections.
Fader Start Play
Connecting the DJM-300S to the CDJ Series allows you to take advantage of Fader Start Play; by increasing the Fader, on the mixer, the player will automatically override the Pause control and start the music immediately. Fader Start Play also works during Cross Fading, an industry first that brings out the best of sampler-style music.
Fader Back Cue Play
When the DJM-300S is used with the CDJ Series, the Fader or Cross Fader controls can also return you automatically to a designated cue point if desired. By fading Cross Fader back and forth or Fader up and down quickly, you can give the "essence" of scratching a certain point on a vinyl record.
Headphone Monitor Switching Function
This handy function makes sound source monitoring more convenient and flexible than ever by allowing you to switch easily between all-channel stereo, all-channel mixed stereo and all-channel left/right distributed monitoring.
Separate Trim controls allow you to perform flexible compensation by individually raising or lowing the input level for each channel to enable almost effortless mixing of selections recorded at different signal levels.
The special equalizer controlling the microphone input means you can set the EQ to HIGH to give your voice greater clarity and presence, or to LOW to enable a variety of microphone sound presentations. Moreover, the EQ can also be used to compensate for feedback or burst sounds.
Phono/Line Switchable Inputs
Using the rear-mounted switches, the rear PHONO inputs can be used as line-inputs to allow the connection of a number of sound-source combinations. In short, the DJM-300S allows even DJs who don't use an analog turntable to make flexible use of four separate sound source inputs.
Master/Channel Level Meter
During normal operation, the DJM-300S's level indicator displays the Master output level. When the Master/Channel Level button is pressed, the input level of each channel can be displayed in turn for quick confirmation of the current channel level input status. A Highly-Reliable Unit that Combines High-Sound Quality with Industrial-Use Durability Pioneer has designed the DJM-300 and DJM300-S as tough pieces of hardware that can cope with hard work. We've employed high-durability industrial-use components for the Faders, Volume controls and other rotary controls, and the Cross Fader is designed to be easily replaced from the top panel. On the audio side, we've paid special attention toward ensuring that, regardless of the sound source, the DJM-300S reproduces all original input sounds faithfully and without unwanted distortion.
