In February 2006 Pioneer launched their CDJ-800
MK2. The CDJ-800
is since than
also referred to as CDJ-800 MK1.
Best of both worlds
DJs can take their skills to new levels of performance and creativity with the
CDJ-800. Not only does it reproduce the touch and feel of a vinyl deck, it also
provides an impressive array of innovative digital functions, so that DJs get
the best of both worlds. In Vinyl mode, the touch-sensitive Jog Wheel allows
DJs to stop/cue up tracks and bend and scratch sounds. In CDJ mode, the Jog
Wheel lets DJs speed up or slow down the music, fine-tune cue points and use
all the other acclaimed CDJ functions.
In addition to the Jog Wheel technology that has reinvented the art of DJing,
the CDJ-800 includes the following new, easy to use functions. When using Vinyl
mode the Quick Return feature enables a track to return instantly again and
again to a cue point just by pressing the surface of the Jog Wheel. The Auto
Beat Loop feature uses 4 timing buttons to instantly create perfect 1, 2, 4,
or 8 beat loops. When a loop has been produced manually with the loop in and
loop out buttons, this feature allows instant 1/1, 1/2, 1/4/, 1/8 beat cuts
of the initial loop.
The Touch Release dial allows CDs playing in Vinyl mode to be slowed, stopped
and relaunched at different speeds when the Jog Wheel is touched or released.
Playing out can also be enhanced with the deck's "Wide" Pitch Control function.
DJs can use the +/- 100% pitch control range to create new sound effects from
opposite ends of the sound spectrum and also to BPM match completely different
tracks. Last but not least, the Digital Out function ensures that all of the
CDJ-800's digital features are carried over to any connected digital environment.

impressive list of outstanding features. The stunning-looking CDJ-800 unleashes
Pioneer's cutting edge technology onto the worldwide stage and delivers digital
power to aspiring and professional DJs today. These ground-breaking functions

Cue/Loop Memory. Master Tempo locks the pitch of a track even when its speed
is changed, allowing DJs to speed up or slow down the beat, without any difference
to the vocals and instruments.
Cue/Loop Memory allows a DJ to set a cue or loop
point and then save it to the deck's internal memory. The CDJ-800 has enough
capacity to save one cue point for up to 500 CDs, so that DJs can locate their
favorite cue points instantly.
The future now

In vinyl mode, the touch-sensitive Jog Wheel gives DJs fingertip control of
their digital music. Users can stop and cue up tracks, bend and scratch sounds,
just as they would with vinyl. In CDJ mode, the Jog Wheel lets DJs speed up
or slow down tracks, fine-tune cue points and use all the other exceptional
The Jog Display shows you a more advanced playing status, mimicing the rotating
op a vinyl players platter.
When using the CDJ-800
in vinyl mode, DJs can scratch the same sound again and
again, without re cueing every time. Simply touch the Jog Wheel and the CDJ-800
finds the cue point instantly.
One button touch release
This allows the sensitivity of the Jog Wheel to be adjusted, so that CDs can
be slowed down, stopped and relaunched according to the DJ's own style.
This is used to either speed up or slow down the tempo of a track, by moving
the Jog Wheel (in CDJ mode) either forwards or backwards.
"Wide" Pitch Control
The pitch control function of the CDJ-800 has an incredible range of +/- 100%.
This means that DJs can use new sound effects from opposite ends of the sound
spectrum and also match the BPM of their played track with virtually any other
This world-famous function locks the pitch of a track, even when its speed is
changed. DJs can speed up or slow down the beat, without any difference to the
sound of the vocals and instruments.
This function is used to playback in reverse, but without having to stop or
start the track. There's no loss of tempo or pitch either.
Once a DJ has set a cue or loop point, it can be saved to the deck's internal
memory. The CDJ-800
has enough capacity to save one cue point for up to 500
CDs, allowing DJs to use all sorts of different tracks without having to find
the cue points manually.
This is the fastest way for DJs to find the first beat of a track, although
it can be turned off for manual cueing.
Cue points can be set anywhere on the CD, in either vinyl or CDJ mode, by making
adjustments with the Jog Wheel or manual search buttons. The cue point is stored
in the deck's internal memory until it's overwritten by a new cue point.
Real Time Cue
Press the In/Real Time cue button to set a cue point instantly, then save it
to the internal memory.
Auto Beat Loop
DJs can create a perfect 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 or full bar (1/1) beat loop instantly,
just by touching the right button.
Loop in/out Adjust
Fine-tune loops quickly and easily by adjusting Loop Out points. The results
can then be saved to the internal memory.
Real time seamless loop
Set a loop quickly and simply, while a track is playing. Once the loop is set,
it can be looped continuously until the Reloop/Exit button is used. When released,
the track continues without a pause.
The CDJ-800 does not have an MMC like the CDJ-1000
(mk2) but it does have a memory
to store 1 CUE or a Loop per CD for a total of 500 Discs. It's not possible
to memorize more than 1 point/loop per CD.
information to another CDJ-800
Although the CDJ800 doesn't have a MMC it is
possible to get this information into another CDJ-800 player. To perform
this you'll need 2 CDJ-800s and just have to follow these guideline step-by-step

appear in the display of both players when the transfer is complete.
message appears on one of the players, the
data transfer was interrupted. Just reboot both players and start again
from the first step with this procedure.
If any of the Loop In button of the receiving player, or the Loop Out
of the sending player is flashing very rapidly, there is something wrong
with the connection between both players. Fix the cable and start this
procedure from the beginning again.
Pioneer has included this function on the CDJ-800 in response to the demands
of the professional DJ market. When the deck is being used in digital out mode,
all of its features - including its superior sound quality - are carried over
to the connected digital environment.
Fader Start/Back Cue Start
When the CDJ-800 is used with any DJM-series mixer you can start the music by
sliding the cross fader. By sliding the fader back,it will return the CDJ-800
back to the previously selected cue point.
Connecting two CDJ-800
?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
Legato Link Conversion
Equipped with Pioneer ?s wide range technology ?Legato Link Conversion.The CDJ-800
is capable of reproducing sound frequencies above 20kHz, which are lost during
normal CD-format playback. Not only does this give great sound reproduction
but sounds closer to the original recording.
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).
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.
