is the ultimate Battle mixer with a huge load of adjustable parameter for optimum adjustability. Alll of these settings are also possible on the DJM-707
but the DJM-909 has a large Touch Screen display.
The Touch Screen display is also the control panel for the effects section. You can pre-select 3 banks of 3 effects per channel for fast acces to your favourite effects. You can chose out of 50 effects, some of them have parameter control by fader.

The switch at the Momentary position returns to OFF when you takes your finger
off the lever, allowing smooth ON-OFF changeover of effects. Also very nice
to use to lift out a certain passage in the music. When turned on, only on the
'snare' in the music gives it a great punch. It's also fun to use it while flashing
the switch in the rhythm or instrument line in the track. When the switch is
at the LOCK ON position, it is continuously switched ON until you return it
to the neutral position. Footswitch Control option for Effects
Universal with almost every foot pedal that is available through your nearest
musical instruments shop. The DJM-909
makes it possible for you to turn the
effects ON and OFF with a footswitch. This gives you a hand free to do other
things, lifting you're set up to an extra dimension.
Besides the accurate automatic BPM counter you can also tab in a bpm manually
by tapping these buttons in the rhythm that you desire. Touch Sensitive Screen for Effects and Fader Curve
The touch sensitive screen has 4 different screens. With these screens you will
have full Control over the 50 effect
that are build into the
effect processors. Each channel has it's own processor so this makes it possible
for you to put a different effect on each channel. Each effect can be controlled
by footswitch or the switch in the effect panel.
In this screen you'll see the effect preset that are assigned to each channel.
When you press the BANK 1-3 button these presets will change according to the
presets that you've made and stored in that bank.
To select an effect simply tap your finger on the square with the desired effect.
This square will turn light to notice you that that's the active effect. You
turn this effect on by the switch or the footswitch.
Above the effect buttons you'll see some basic information : For which frequencies
the effects are activated, the BPM and the parameter of the effect in milliseconds.
These are the parameters for the effect you have selected for this channel.
The information shown on this page is different for some effects because these
effects have different parameters that you can change.
The top 3 square (on this picture no activation is possible) give
you control for which frequencies range the effect will work: LOW, MID and HIGH.
Tap once to activate (square will light up), tap again to deactivate. The BPM information and time settings of the effect (related to
BPM) is displayed below the frequency buttons. All the squares display on which measure the setting of the effect
is set (i.e. 1/4, 1/8 or 2/1). Press these squares to switch the setting of
the effect to the measure that you press.
Try switching between 2-3 different
measures in the rhythm of the music, or drawing figures with your finger on
the screen. On the bottom row squares normally 1square is reserved for AUTO
BPM/TAP BPM selection. For the effect where you Control the parameter with the
fader a square is reserved for FADER/CROSSFADER selection for this parameter.
To assign an effect to one of the banks you have to hold the FADER CURVE / BANK
EDIT for 2 seconds to enter the Effect select screen.
This will be the screen you see here where you can use the parameter rotary to scroll through a list of all available effects.

In the 4th and final screen of the DJM-909
you can set curves for the channel
faders and the crossfader. The fader curve
that the fader follows to increase
and decrease the volume of that channel can be adjusted in 24 steps which gives
you almost seamless control over it. The controls are the rotaries on the front side of the mixer.
From 'hamster switch' on the bottom or
the top to linear or logarithmical curves can be set in just a turn of a knob
and for each channel independent.
The crossfader curve
can also be adjust for each
also with almost infinite combinations. You can move
the x-over point from side to side and place it anywhere on the fader. Variations
can be made between a sharp curve on the left side of the fader to a smooth
crossing in the middle, you imagine it !
And offcourse the DJM-909 also has ALL features of the DJM-707:
and DJM-909 are designed with scratch DJs, the studio / production
DJs and the Turntablist in mind, however they are also excellent units for all
DJs wanting to improve their performance level. The introduction of these two
revolutionary mixers has taken the high-end battle mixer into a whole new dimension
with features that were unknown to this industry before and now revealed for
the first time.
The DJM-707 boast the highest quality in sound and design that exceed today’s
battle / performance mixers offering powerful club sound in a battle mixer.
This was accomplished with sensitive yet solid gripping EQ knobs, durable transform
switches, and precise and accurate cross fader curve control.
Pioneer has developed an original “non-contact” cross fader technology with
unprecedented durability and reliability. Cracks, clicks and drop-outs in the
crossfader are hardly possible.
Both mixers can connect with Pioneer’s CDJ series to employ the fader start
capability. The user can automatically start or stop playback by the sliding
cross-fader or channel-fader.
When you use the FADER REVERSE function the faderstart
will automaticly move to the other side of the (cros)fader. It works by the
principle of : volume down -> CDJ in cue.
The DJM-707 offers a very clean, open fader area for scratching and beat juggling
and has a session line-in with volume control, cueable master output, mic input,
and selectable phono / line switches. There is lots of room around the area
with the faders / crossfaders so nothing is in the way to bother you while performing.
The most important feature on any battle mixer is its crossfader and fader performance.
Pioneer’s DJM-707 and DJM-909 introduce the most precise and customizable cross
fader in the industry to date. The cross fader is highly durable and has double
fade control allowing each half of the cross fader the ability to be adjusted
independently! In the unlikely event that a fader should be repaced, it's always
nice to know that it's an easy job to do so. Each channel fader curve can be
adjusted from a smooth volume change to a dynamic volume ON/OFF at the TIP of
the channel faders (bottom or top). In turntablist slang, you will be able to
crab-scratch the channel faders from either the top end or bottom end of the
The 'lag' of the crossfader can also be adjusted from 1mm to 6mm. The lag is
the area from the crossfader from the corner to the point where that actual
fader starts to open. Some people prefer a bigger area than others, this is
also unique for lots of DJ's because your style could be build on the effects
you make with a certain lag.
Each of the faders can be reversed instantly. On the front left are the 3 switches
that controll both channel-faders and the middle one is for the crossfader.
The faderreverse-function includes a red LED above each fader which lights up
when this function is activated.
The cross fader feel can also be adjusted to your preference (a breakthrough
functionality, industry-first). By easily tightening a screw you can set the
feel (tightness) of the crossfader exactly as tight as you want it to be. A
tool to do this is included with the DJM-707 and the DJM-909
The equalizers (LOW/MID/HIGH) for each channel can be switched on and off by
a lever-switch. This switch has the same grip as the TRANSFORM switch. Great
for giving more accents in certain passages of the tracks you play. Use it to
lift out a snare or istrument (cut down LOW and boost MID and HIGH), switch
only on a certain instrument or melody and use it like a transform switch. The
red LED is light up when the EQ is switched on.
The SEND/RETURN can be used to hook up an extra EFX-500 or any other effects
The output from the DJM-707 and DJM-909 is both on RCA and XLR connections to
meet the standard from nowadays clublife.
With an easy fader the monitor source can be selected. It's also possible to P
isten to the master
or the effects section.
Located on the back of the mixer is the input for a microphone. The connection-type
is a Combo Jack/XLR socket so you can insert a microphone with an XLR or
Phone (JACK) connector. The microphone volume is controlled on the top-left
of the mixer and also had a LOW and HIGH equalizer.
Another unique and industry-first feature is the Session In/Out connection.
This basicly gives you another input with only volume control and is used when
you make a battle set-up. Connect Mixer A's session OUT to the session IN from
mixer B. The output from mixer A goes to the monitor amplifiers from DJ A. During
the soundcheck you can make the final adjustments of the session IN and OUt
controlls of moth mixers. Now the DJ's can both use their own monitor and DJ-system
and without the need of a third master-mixer the battle can begin.
The transform switches also have a unique feature that I've never seen before
with this much flexibility. You can rotate the transformswitches independent
from eachother in steps of 45 degrees.
The switch is 180 degrees rotatetable
and is connecter to the mixer with a system-connector. Replacing a transform-switch
in the unlikely event that it breaks down is as easy as opening the mixer on
the top, loosen 4 screws and you have direct acces to this section of the mixer.
On the picture on the right you see that the switch is originaly moving up (ON)
and down (OFF).
When you want to rotate the Transform Switches
you need to unscrew the screws
marked with a GREEN
When a Fader
needs to be changed you can do so by
unscrewing the RED
And in in the case there's something wrong
with the Crossfader
(I wouldn't know how you could ever do such a thing) you
need to use the screws that are marked with a BLUE
When you want to rotate this switch you have to unscrew the top of your mixer
(4 screws) and lift the deckplate. In the picture you see marks at the screws
that hold the faders and transform switches. Each fader or switch is hold to
it's place by 2 screws. Unscrew only these marked screws because others have
of all replaceble parts are screwed to the mixer by 2 screws. Unscrew them with
a small Philips screwdriver. You can now take out the switch and move it to
the position that you desire. There are holes in the metal housing of the switch
in steps of 1/8 rotation. The wires that connects the switch to mixer has enough
length for you to move freely. If you would like to replace the switch you can
disconnect the little system-connector on the printboard that is located at
the bottom of the switch.
Here the fader is rotated 90 degrees to work horizontaly, but you're free to
set it in any position.
