Pioneer Professional Multi Player CDJ-2000nexus Supports Compatibility of Serato Scratch Live

Pioneer’s flagship CDJ-2000nexus professional digital multi player is now compatible with the latest version of Serato® Scratch Live® software. CDJ-2000nexus players with current firmware Version 1.13 will work in-sync with the Scratch Live software Version 2.5.0 for intuitive DJ performance using music files stored on a computer, without the need for a control disc.

In Online Mode, Scratch Live software functions automatically link to corresponding buttons and keys of the CDJ-2000nexus player when a computer operating the software is connected via the player’s USB port. For convenience and ease of use, functions such as tempo adjustment, play/cue and loop can be made without having to use a computer keyboard or mouse.

With the built-in color display of the Pioneer® CDJ-2000nexus, detailed track information of the Scratch Live software is indicated including text, album artwork, waveform, cue/loop points and other information, resulting in quicker visual communication and enhanced DJ performance.
