Presenting the DDJ-FLx6 4-Channel Controller

By November 19, 2020No Comments

Pioneer DJ, the innovative leader in DJ technology today announced the newest addition to its line of DJ controllers, the DDJ-FLX6. This new 4-channel controller features a host of new functions and reimagined design. The DDJ-FLX6 also unlocks DJ Performance modes in rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro, offering an artist the freedom to choose which software application to run for free.

DDJ-FLX6

The DDJ-FLX6 introduces a new Merge FX feature, enabling artists to effortlessly switch genres—from hip-hop to house, to rock and EDM, and anything in between. A simple shift of a knob can help transition music and initiate a crescendo. When ready, artists can then press the knob to trigger a perfectly aligned beat drop with an optional punchy sample.

The DDJ-FLX6 is designed to help artists perform energetically and intuitively. The full-size jog wheels track position display enables instinctive music manipulation. With the brand-new Jog Cutter feature, artists can quickly create a variety of slick scratch sounds by moving the jog wheel back and forth without ever touching the crossfader.

The new controller also features the latest rekordbox Sample Scratch function. With Sample Scratch, artists can take sounds assigned to the sampler and load them onto the decks to use with Jog Cutter. The DDJ-FLX6 offers four channels, allowing track play on decks one and two, and sample scratching on decks three and four.

The DDJ-FLX6 design stands out as Pioneer DJ’s first controller featuring a new dark gray matte finish, and a unique jog wheel design to complement the aesthetic. The DDJ-FLX6 is available now at $829.00 CAD.

Add drama to sets and easily mix different styles of music with Merge FX. No matter the BPM or key the next track is, artists can create an exciting transition whenever they choose. Artists simply press the knob to engage the effect, then turn it as fast or as slow as desired to build tension in the music. Depending on the chosen effect, the pitch of the track might climb, while a short interval snare drum sample plays until the artist is ready to drop the next song. When ready, artists can release the effect and quickly introduce the next song or genre of music by pressing the knob.

Artists have eight Merge FX pattern presets to choose from when using rekordbox, and four when using Serato DJ Pro. Regardless of the software, artists have the freedom to use their own samples. When DJing from rekordbox, artists can choose from 41 types of effects within the four categories (Build FX, Build Sample, Release FX, and Drop Sample) making up one Merge FX and combine them to create more than 9,000 different patterns. Artists can also save eight of their own patterns and use the FX Select button on the unit to cue whenever they wish to perform a unique mix.

Jog Cutter: Craft Pro-Sounding Scratch Effects One-Handed

Turn on Jog Cutter and move the jog wheel to apply a professional scratch effect to the last Hot Cue or playback position used on the deck. Artists can choose from ten different scratch patterns, and quickly shift from one pattern to another by adjusting the playhead position shown on the jog wheel display. After lifting their hands away from the board, the track will continue to play as normal from the Hot Cue position.

 Perform Intuitively: Full-size Jog Wheels with Track Position Display

The DDJ-FLX6 delivers natural feeling pitch bending and scratching with full-size jog wheels, same size as those on the flagship CDJ-3000 multi player. Each jog wheel features an On Jog Display allowing artists to keep an eye on the playhead position.

Sample Scratch: Get Creative with Your Favorite Sounds

Sample Scratch is a brand-new pad mode in rekordbox enabling artists to choose sounds assigned to the sampler and load them onto the decks. Sample Scratch empowers artists to add textures with their favorite sounds. Artists with Serato DJ Pro can use Scratch Bank to trigger samples by hitting the Performance Pads.

Play Freely: Plug and Play Compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro

With a built-in sound card and support for the DJ Performance functions in rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro, the DDJ-FLX6 eliminates the need for a paid subscription. Simply connect the DDJ-FLX6 via USB cable to a laptop running either software application to begin DJing. The new controller also includes license keys for the Serato DJ Pro FX Pack and Pitch ’n Time DJ Expansion Packs, allowing artists to use advanced features, regardless of the software.
