MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. Drawing from Pioneer’s rich DJ heritage with our passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX takes the music from an iPod®, iPhone®, or USB device and plays it back with added transitions and effects, creating a virtual DJ inside the DEH-P8400BH.

The DEH-P8400BH features MIXTRAX EZ which makes automatic remixing of tracks extra-quick and easy without using MIXTRAX software for Non-Stop Mix Play. Tracks are joined by various random sound effects in Non-Stop Mix Play to keep the mood moving in full swing.

The receiver’s cool Club-Style Illumination function enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights on the receiver start pulsing to the beat of the music, livening up your in-car entertainment. Choose among six patterns of lighting color variation. You can also select either of two synchronization modes: sound level or low-pass.
