I really need a new mixer, I thort buying behringers DJX 700 would be a good idea about a year ago but quickly regretted it. I am now looking at a new mixer and imediately bypassed the DDM4000 as its made buy Behringer, but I heard good things from Youtube videos etc. When I heard it was fully midi mapable, i realised that this mixer must be some good and the effects sound alot better when watching the videos. I was wondering what people thought of this. Is it hard to use when actually doing a set? all those buttons it looks like they've complicated it a bit.

It's a mixer with a lot of functions, really very much functions. I've tried it in a local shop but the Eq doesn't sound very musical and the mixer is very duffycult too work with. All knobs are small, faders are short. Sometimes you need to push different knobs at the same time, the EFX are not just with a on/off button but with 0,01 pitch adjustment and you need to push one of the knobs below, you have to push a knob to select an effect sometimes, it's all really diffecult. And I think that the quality is not much better than the qouality from a DJX-700, poor....

You could do it, but remember it is a BehringerWinking my eye:

DJX-700 Crash 1

DJX-700 Crash 2

The DJX-700 has broken for at least 7 times! Broken faders, effects or an total system failur. I will never buy a Behringer, really never:P.

Aha oke:P. You should better look for an DJM-700 of 800 thanWinking my eye. These mixers are a lot better with there faders and functions.

I've seen you react in more topics where people are asking questions about budget gear and you always suggest expensive Pioneer gear. That doesn't make sense, ain't it? Do you think that someone who's looking for a mixer as this can or want to pay 1000 euro more for a mixer like de 800 or 700? I don't think so.

If it was that simpele there weren't topics like these. I understand that you like your Pioneer gear and I like mine, but it would be nice of you would think realisticly.

i would love a DJM 700/800 but i dont simply want to rule this out as an option, i'm only 17 and am still in full time education so price is a huge factor really, also I want to buy a laptop and Ableton Live and start using that to DJ also.

Jep i knowWinking my eye. It is not an easy choise... I have both tested the DJM-800 and the DDM-4000 at diffirent music stores and i think the Behringer DDM-4000 is not an good choise because it is another look a like Pioneer and if it is the same waste as the DJX-700 what than? The DDM has to much buttons, i don't understand whyCry The display of the DDM is not so clear as if you look to an display of an DJM-700 of 800... I'm not sure about it, i use Pioneer for years now and never had any problem with any product, not even my amp or speakers (these are more than ten years old!). After i had the DJX-700 i never wanted a Behringer anymore! My dad has a Behringer mixer for his home studio productions and that thing was broken for 3 times!!! I know it is not an easy choise because of a budget. But if you want a Behringer you should better earn more money and buy something better. Believe me for the money i had wasted on fuel i could allready buy an DJM-800Cry.

i've tried him @ america where he was standing in a mall and i can say that it is a very fine machine.

it's not to compare with a pioneer, but it felt not wrong.
maybe behringer now have listened to the costumers for once :D.
Music made me who i am

Buy the 4000, have fun with it for a year, then you'll have the money to upgrade to the big ones.

I looked at your booth and saw that u only got quality cd players and TT's :PSo why don't save for a quality mixer? The best thing u can do is save. And ofcource now buy a cheap mixer! But i don't think the behringer 4000 is a good option bcause it's not that cheap. I think the 4000 is around 400 euro. But for that price u better buy a synq or jb.

I have a vmx1000 by behringer and it's working from 3 years...no problems, never...its only problem is the sound quality...but the vmx is very strong...beer, falls...it's still working...I like the allen mixers...the xone42 is very nice...

it took me 4 years to "assemble" my booth! I started mixing with an old, cheap but still nice 2nd hand mixer which I only replaced 3 months ago with a djm800.

The best advice in all investment cases is to know your long term objectives, if that's a djm 800, you should save money to buy one.  in the end it will have saved you money (since you didn't bought other equipment) and time, since you already "saved" the money you didn't spend Happy, laughing
