Classic Cd Player - Pioneer Cdj-1000

Recommended Posts



Pioneer's CDJ-1000 revolutionises the way to play with CD's, just like vinyl you can stop the digital sound with your fingers and cue up in exactly the same way. Even bending the sound or scratching with no sound latency is possible. Never before has digital so successfully reproduced the sounds, feel and creativity of analogue. Thorough research and close communication with professional DJ's has provided Pioneer with the impetus and challenge to develop the first ever digital deck to feature such integrally analogue features in a purely digital environment.


The CDJ-1000 is changing the face of Djing - stimulating and inspiring the DJ to be more creative behind the decks, providing you with more funky features to play,use and experiment with. No longer do you need to spend years learning the 'Cut and Paste'DJ techniques nor gain experience scratching, cutting and defining the 'Rewind' technique. It has never been easier.


Main Display

The main display gives you most information that you might need during your performances. A music-calender, track-time information, cue/loop information, pitch and BPM info


Waveform information

The Wave Display makes it possible to read the CD visually like you would a vinyl record “groove contrast,” so finding a cue / break point is quick and easy.

This information is read and displayed every time you load a CD (takes around 10-20 seconds to display a full track). If you use a MMC (MultiMediaCard) the Waveform is stored on the card and will appear instantly everytime you insert the CD again.



Wave Zoom

Increases the detail of wave data shown in the display (x2 Zoom). Wave Search (Zoom)

This allows you to scroll the wave data shown in the display window from the beginning to the end of a track, making it easier to set cue or loop points. CD Text /Wave

Switches the display between the Wave or CD Text mode. Time Mode /Auto Cue

Switches between time elapsed and time remaining,and also Auto Cue on/off.


BPM Counter - Indicates BPM for the current track.

Reverse Indicator - Lights when the CDJ-1000 is in reverse mode.

Memory Loop Indicator - Displays the selected track loop memory position.

Memory Cue Indicator - Displays the selected cue memory positions stored in memory


JOG display

Indicates current play position in frames – 135 frames for a full rotation. The display is animated showing the direction of play -either forward or reverse. The speed of the animations is about the same as a record that is playing at 33 RPM.


Cue and Loop Point Indicator

Indicates if there is a cue or loop point stored in memory.


Vinyl Mode Indicator

Lights up when the vinyl mode is selected


Vinyl Indicator

Lights when the jog dial is touched or paused in Vinyl mode


Jog Dial

Cue your CDs with the world’s largest Touch Sensitive jog dial (7 ”/206mm diameter) designed to emulate the control characteristics of a Vinyl Deck, together with all the features from Pioneer’s industry standard CDJ range of CD players. The Jog resolution for both Vinyl and CDJ modes is 135 frames per revolution. 75 frames =1 second.


Pitch Bend

Is used to either speed up or slow down he tempo of he music depending the direction the jog dial is rotated – either forward or reverse..


Jog Mode

The CDJ-1000 can be set in either Vinyl or CDJ mode. In CDJ mode the jog dial functions just like a Pioneer CDJ player,but without the touch sensitivity.


Scratch Play/Cue

When the CDJ-1000 is in vinyl mode the top of the jog dial works just like a Vinyl Deck. Pressing down stops the music and allows you to scratch or cue your rack by rotating the jog dial in either direction.


Vinyl Speed Adjust Touch/Break & Release/Start

This allows adjustment in the speed at which he CD slows down until it stops or speed up untill it reaches the right tempo.


Real Time Seamless Loop

A quick and simple way to set a loop while a rack is playing. Once the loop is set, it can then be looped continuously or until the Reloop /Exit button is pressed. When released the track continues playing without any pause. The loop can be re-trigged at any time by hitting the Reloop button.


Loop In /Out Adjust

Another world first from Pioneer -is the ability to adjust both the In and Out points of a loop stored in memory. So now fine tuning a loop is both quick and easy.Loop-In adjust is only available on the CDJ-1000.



Hitting the Reloop button instantly takes you back to the beginning of the loop stored in the CDJ-1000 ’s memory. This can be done either while the loop is playing or at any time while he current track is playing. Clever use of Reloop can create cool sample effects.The same loop is always stored in memory until replaced with a new loop.




Real Time Cue

A cue point can be set on the fly and stored into the internal memory by just simply hitting the In/Real-time cue button.


Manual Cue

Cue points can be set anywhere on the CD using either the Vinyl or CDJ mode. Adjustment is made by using either the jog dial or manual search buttons. The cue point is automatically stored in the internal memory when MEMORY button is pressed* until it is overwritten with a new cue point.


Auto Cue

This is the fastest way to find the beginning of a track. The sound level can also be changed to suit your style of music (-36db to –78db) There is also an option to turn it off if you prefer to cue up your CD tracks manually.


Hot Cue

Memorises up to 3 cue point ’s per CD. These points can then be recalled by hitting either of the A,B or C buttons. This function can also be used like a mini sampler for vocals, stabs or breaks, adding that touch of creativity to any DJ set.




Tempo Control

A new 100mm linear high precision slider connected to a 0.02% (at +/-6%)adjustment indication on the display panel. Gives the DJ ’s that total control and ensures that the tempo adjustment is easy and accurate.


Tempo Control Range

Ranges of +/-6%, +/-10%, +/-16%and +/-24% can be assigned to the Tempo Control slider to offer a greater range of adjustment than on any of the previous Pioneer CDJ ’s. Tempo Control Reset

Resets the tempo to 0% or original tempo of the track regardless of he slider position. The button has been recessed to prevent accidental selection.


Master Tempo

Pioneer ’s Master Tempo locks the pitch of the track even when you change the speed. So unlike Vinyl you can speed up or slow down the beat without any noticeable difference in how the vocal and instruments sound.


MMC -MultiMediaCard*

The CDJ-1000 has a new memory feature that let ’s you store Wave Data as well as Cue and Loop points. The data can be stored on a removable memory card (MMC)or the players internal memory. The removable MMC card can also be used in any CDJ-1000, so once you’ve stored your favourite cue and loop points they’re there for life. The CDJ-1000 also has a feature that allows you to duplicate MMC cards. (Multimedia Card (MMC) is not supplied with the CDJ-1000).


Wave Data

CD Wave data is always saved on to the MMC when inser ed and then appears instantly as if like magic. Cue /Loop Memory

Once you set a cue or loop point you can save it to either the internal memory or MMC card by hitting a button. Delete MMC Data

Gets rid of those Cue or Loop points that you shouldn ’t have bothered saving in the first place. Call MMC data

A quick and easy way to scroll through saved cue and loop points.


*If a Multimediacard (MMC)is inserted into the CDJ-1000,the cue point is automatically stored in the cards memory.



Instant reverse is controlled by using a DJ friendly flickable switch.With no loss of tempo or pitch, it can be used immediately within any track without having o stop or star -which is common with vinyl decks. Reverse can also be used with the Hot Cue and the Loop Sampler providing endless combinations and effects.


Eject Button & CD Lock

The CDJ-1000 has a guard to prevent you from accidentally pressing the eject button. The CD can also be locked for extra security.


Legato Link Conversion

For High Quality Sound the CDJ-1000 is Equipped with Pioneer ’s wide range technology –Legato Link Conversion, the CDJ-1000 is capable of reproducing sound frequencies above 20kHz, which are lost during normal CD-format playback. Not only does this give great and natural sound reproduction but sounds closer to the original recording.


Shock-Proof Memory

Sound jumps or skipping is prevented by using a 16 second shock-proof memory for normal CD play (minimum of 10 seconds if scratching and reading wave data at the same time in Vinyl mode).



An oil-dampened floating suspension prevents sound skipping, even when the player is subjected to impact during use or vibrations generated from high volume music and low frequency bass.


Multi-Read Format

The CDJ-1000 can read CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs. MP3 IS NOT SUPPORTED !


Front Loading

Loading CD ’s without having to open doors or trays makes swapping discs and selecting tracks that much faster. It also helps to keep dir and any nasty substances out of the CD ’s working parts.


Fader Start

When the CDJ-1000 is used with the DJM-600, DJM-500,DJM-300 or DJM-300-S mixer you can star the music by sliding the cross fader.By sliding the fader back, it will return the CDJ-1000 back to the previously selected cue point.


Relay Play

Connecting two CDJ-1000 ’s with a standard 3.5mm mini-plug cable allows one unit to be put on standby whilst the other plays. Relay Play automatically starts the second player enabling them to play 'back to back' to give you endless music play. Built For The Professional DJ

To prevent accidental CD ejection or loss of mains power the CDJ-1000 has safety guards around the power and eject buttons together with a locking feature.
