The Pioneer DDJ-FLX6 is a 4-channel DJ performance control for rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro. The controller is bus powered and unlocks both rekordbox DJ and Serator DJ Pro software without the need for a subscription. The format of the controller borrows heavily from the flagship DJM and CDJ line of equipment. Full-sized jog wheels feature on-jog displays with playhead positioning.
The DDJ-FLX6 introduces several new features including Merge FX and Jog Cutter scratch effects. Merge FX add dramatic flair to your sets and allow you to easily mix different styles of music regardless of BPM or key. Simply engage the Merge FX knob and turn to start building tension in the music. Once you’re ready to make a drop and move the next track, simply press the Merge FX knob again. You can customize each Merge FX type from a list of 41 FX types for each element (Build FX, Sample, Release FX, Drop Sample), and combine them to create more than 9000 different patterns.
Engage the Jog Cutter feature, and move the jog-wheel to add professional sounding scratch effects to the last Hot Cue or playback position when you engage and move. There are 10 different scratch patterns and you can switch from one to another simply by moving the playhead position shown on the jog wheel’s display so that it points toward the angle of the scratch you want to use.
The ergonomic design features 8 multicolor and velocity sensitive performance pads on each deck with four modes of operation including hot cue, roll, slicer, and sampler. You can load samples and tracks into Serato DJ Pro or rekordbox DJ and play with the onboard pads. The center panel of the DDJ-FLX6 is a 4-channel mixer with a built-in soundcard with stereo RCA master and booth outputs. A 1/4″ mic input with attenuator and level controls is included for making announcements or performing live. Two sets of headphone outputs (1/4″ and 3.5mm) are available for any style of headphone. The Pioneer DDJ-FLX6 ships with a USB cable, Serato DJ’s Pitch ‘n Time, and Serato DJ FX pack.
New Merge FX
Add drama to your sets and easily mix different styles of music. No matter what the BPM or key of the next track is, you can create an exciting transition whenever you want. Simply press the knob and turn it as fast or as slowly as you like to start building up the tension in the music
- Select a Merge FX Preset and Press the Knob: Choose one of the 4 assigned Merge FX patterns, and press the knob to start building the tension
- Turn the Merge FX Knob: Increase the influence of the effect by simply turning the knob. Depending on the preset pattern you’ve chosen, the combination of different effects and samples is triggered at the same time
- Press the Knob Again to Release the Effect, Then Play the Next Track: When you’re ready to make a drop and move to your next track, simply press the knob again. The effect is released, and when one is assigned in the preset, the sample plays. The track stops automatically, so all you need to do is hit play on the other deck to drop your next track
- Customize Your Merge FX: In the new Merge FX section in rekordbox (PC/Mac), you can customize each effect type and the samples used in each pattern to create your own variations. Choose from 41 types of effect for each element (Build FX, Build Sample, Release FX, and Drop Sample) and combine them to create more than 9000 different patterns
Jog Cutter: Create Pro-Sounding Scratch Effects, One-Handed
Turn on Jog Cutter and simply move the jog wheel to apply a professional-sounding scratch effect to the last Hot Cue or playback position you used on that deck. There are 10 different scratch patterns, and you can switch from one to another by simply moving the playhead position, shown on the jog wheel’s display, to point toward the angle for the scratch you want to use
Full-Sized Jog Wheels with Track Position Display
Pitch bending and scratching feels natural thanks to the large jog wheels, which are the same size as those on the flagship CDJ-3000 multi player. Each one features an on-jog display too, so you can keep an eye on the playhead positions
Sample Scratch: Get Creative with Your Favorite Sounds
Sample Scratch is a new pad mode in rekordbox, which enables you to choose sounds you’ve assigned to the sampler, and load them onto the decks. So, when you want to create a live remix of a track, or simply want to add some texture to the music, you can scratch with your favorite sounds
Plug and Play Compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro
With a built-in sound card and support for DJ Performance functions in rekordbox (equivalent to the Core plan) and Serato DJ Pro, all you need to do is connect the DDJ-FLX6 via USB cable to a laptop that’s running either software application and you can start DJing. You don’t need a paid subscription plan for either
Updated Aesthetic Design
The layout of the controls on the DDJ-FLX6 is similar to that on the club-standard CDJ + DJM setup, so you can perform intuitively. However, this DJ controller introduces a fresh look, with a high-quality dark-gray matte finish and redesigned jog wheels that will make your setup stand out
The mixer section has 4 channels, so you can freely create mashups or scratch on the fly
