Pioneer DJ - Video Overview

Gearbase product details : Pioneer DJ DVJ-1000

The Pioneer DVJ-1000 is the brother of the famous DVJ-X1, the latter introduced mixing with DVD to the big audience. Since than there has been a lot of changes in the music scene. More and more DJ's are using DVD nowadays as a part of for their complete performance.

The content a DJ would play on the DVJ is getting better available nowadays with companies like MixMash and CD Pool. These companies release new DVD's on a monthly base in a wide variety of musical genres. Now with the DVJ-1000, mixing with DVD becomes within range of DJ's that want to add an extra dimension to their performance, and so supplying a way to stand out in the crowed. The DVJ-1000 is loaded with features that are known of it's small brother the CDJ-1000mk3.

Most parts of the DVJ-1000's feature-set are features that you might already know of previous products (DVJ-X1 and CDJ-1000MK3). The DVJ1000 combines the best of both worlds and add some new stuff.

to retain as much of the audio quality as possible

24-bit/96kHz Technology

The DVJ-1000 is fully digital and upscale's the audio from CD to 24-bit/96kH for internal processing. This is also the format of the Digital Output. So when connected to a DJM with digital input the complete flow of audio is kept 24-bit/96kHz until it reaches the output of the mixer (and even that could be done digitally).

MP3 playback is enhanced

It's now also possible to play MP3 music from DVD-R. All thought 1000 tracks per disc is the limit, I doubt that more is needed. Nearly all formats in a variety of bitrate is supported (CBR & VBR).

When used with a preview monitor, you can browse very easy through the folders on the disc.

For quick navigation you use the DVD Title/MP3 Folder skip buttons to navigate through the folders. Use the regular Track Search buttons for navigation inside a map.

To keep things easy for yourself try to have only folders in the Root Folder of the disc. When the DVJ-1000 is connected to a preview screen you can navigate with the navigation button and use Enter to confirm.

Pal & NTSC

DVD's made for the European market are made conform PAL video standards, discs made for the American and Japanese territories are made conform NTSC video standards. Because other specification of the outputted video signal it is important to know in which format your DVD is recorded. Usually this is mentioned on the outside of the disc.

You should be able to read it without purchasing the discs. Besides a DVD-player, also the display monitors, TV-sets or plasma screen is setup for a specific standard. Both must match so your display equipment displays the video in a proper way.

To overcome problems the DVJ-1000 has a build in PAL/NTSC converter and with the player you can select what standard it uses on the outputs. The selected video standard is shown in the main display in the lower left corner.

Pioneer DVJ-1000 Video Standards SettingSetting PAL/NTSC Output

You can change the video standard that is used on the output of the DVJ-1000.

The changes always follow this order each reboot : PAL -> AUTO -> NTSC -> PAL -> ...

To alternate this, turn off the DVJ first. Hold the DVD Title/MP3 Folder '>' button while you turn on the DVJ and hold it until the standard which will be used is displayed in the display.

Jog Feeling Adjust

Just like on the CDJ-1000MK3 you can set the resistance you feel when using the jog. When the dial is set all the way to the left it resembles the feeling of the CDJ-800. When rotated to around '10-past' (as in the image), you have a feeling that comes very close to that of the CDJ-1000MK2.

Hot Loop & CuePioneer DVJ-1000 Video Standards Setting

The A, B and C buttons on the left back end of the machine are used for the Hot Cue/Loops. With the Rec Mode button you can toggle the functionality of these buttons. When in Rec Mode, the letters will illuminate red to mark that they are ready to record a new Hot Cue or Loop Point. A Cue point will be recorded in all situation. To record a Hot Loop the DVJ must be in Loop Play mode when you press any of the three letters while they are illuminated red.

To recall and use any of the Hot Cue/Loops, toggle the Rec Mode so that the letters A,B and C are green or yellow illuminated. A yellow light indicates a stored Loop and a green light indicates a stored Cue Point. The Hot Cue/Loop will instantly start after pressing any of the Hot Cue/Loop buttons when the DVJ is in Play Mode, it will hold at the Hot Cue/Loop point when pressed in Pause Mode.

Onscreen Display

When the DVJ-1000 is used in conjunction with a preview monitor (connected to the DVJ), you have more overview of what is happening. The on-screen information on the preview monitor can be turned off by pressing the DISPLAY button.

The on-screen information on the top of the screen shows you Track information (number, time remaining, time) and the Waveform / Memory Card information.

The bottom section shows in CD and DVD mode the same information, it only looks different.

When a DVD is played, each of the Hot Loop/Cue's shows a thumbnail of the video frame so mistakes should not be made easy.

When a CD is played the Track number and start time of the Hot Loop/Cue point is show for each (Hot) Cue/Loop.


A loop is a never ending rehearsal of a part of a track or CD and is played until the Reloop/Exit button is pressed. The start (Loop In) point is set by pressing the Loop In button or setting a regular Cue Point. The Cue Point is used as a start point when no specific Loop In point is set.

Pioneer DVJ-1000 Loop control section
The set a loop, just set a Loop Out point anywhere after you've set a Loop In point on a CD. As soon as you press the Loop Out button the DVJ saves this point to it's memory and seamless go to play from the Loop In point onwards.

Loop Adjust

To adjust the Loop In or Out point you have to press the Loop In or Out button while the DVJ is in Loop Play mode. This button will start to flash, indicating you can now set this point to a new location using the FFWD/REV buttons or the Jog. The touch sensor's functionality is disabled during Loop edit.

Loop Back & Forth

This is a brand new feature and performs a specialized loop playback. When you play a loop from DVD the audio sounds good, but the video tends to skip when the loop is restarted. Back & Forth now comes in action by playing the loop reversed every other time. When activated a little bar lights up just above the Back & Forth button.

Pioneer DVJ-1000 Back & Forth Loop explained


After you've exited a loop with the Reloop/Exit button, it is kept in the memory. As long as the Reloop/Exit button is illuminated, a loop is ready to be recalled directly when the Reloop/Exit button is pressed.


This feature loops a piece of 4 beats automatically when pressed. When pressed a Loop In point is set, after 4 beats a Loop Out Point will be set automatically. When you keep this button pressed the DVJ will perform a 1-Track loop, looping the complete track from start to end.

For use with CD this might seem like not such a big issue, but when you're involved in the creation process of looped video content this is something that makes life easy. Instead of looping the video before you burn it, you now only need to create 1 loop sequence which you can easy Play as a 1-track loop. When the video content is created accurately this will make life at the stage very easy.

Faster Searching using the Jog

When you are holding the Track Search button Track Backwards/Track Forwards and rotate the Jog you will scroll very fast through the discs index. 1 Rotation skips about 30 tracks.

When you hold down the regular Search button Search Backwards/Search Forward and rotate the Jog dial, you will search at a faster speed. Fast Search is performed in the direction of which the jog is rotated so it can also be done backwards.

In both cases (track or regular search), it doesn't matter which of the Search Buttons you press (Search Backwards/Search ForwardorTrack Backwards/Track Forwards), the direction of the rotation of the Jog determines the direction.

Pioneer DVJ-1000 Memory Card door

SD/MMC Memory

Just like on DVJ-X1 and CDJ-1000MK3 you can store several things on the Memory Card : All waveforms, 100 Cue Points per disc and 3 Hot Loop/Cue's. The waveforms are written to the Memory Card automatically when they're completely read. Also the last 3 used Hot Loop/Cue's are stored. The total number of disc's you can store depends on the type of disc (CD, DVD or MP3), the number of stored points per disc and the size of your Memory Card.

Use an SD Memory card instead of an MMC. On an MMC card you CANNOT store DVD points, MP3 loops and Cue's.

Using the Memory

If you want to store anything on the Memory Card you only have to press the little black MEMORY button, that Cue Point or Loop is directly stored on the Memory Card for later use. This will be shown to you shortly in the display. Also a little red marker will appear on the main display, just above the playing address bar.

To remove a point from the Memory Card, you recall the point you want to delete and directly after that press the DELETE button. The display will show that a point has been deleted. When you recall any information from the Memory Card you need to decide what to do with it. You can store a Cue Point under the Cue button or the loop. But you can also record it directly on any of the Hot Loop/Cue 's.

When a CD is used you only use the < and > button of the navigation button to go to the next or previous point on the Memory Card. Confirm your choice with the Enter button.

You can see the stored Cue and Loop points as red markers above the playing address bar.

Pioneer DVJ-1000 Display of preview screen -CALL- DVD playbackIf a DVD is used

The functionality for using the Memory card is more advanced when using a DVD. With each Cue or Loop that is stored, a thumbnail picture is made and stored with it on the Memory Card. You now need to navigate through your point using a preview monitor. There’s a video output connection for it at the backside of the DVJ-1000.

On the preview screen you will see al the thumbnail pictures that show the first frame of the video at the begin point. Navigate through them and select any point with the Enter button.

Main Display

On the main display you see all important information that you might need during your performance. The displays is mounted in an angle of about 20 degrees. Reading it is very comfortable. There is a lot of information on the main display :

Bullet Arrow Track (title) number, chapter (if DVD inserted) and total tracks (chapters) on the disc.
Bullet Arrow Time Elapsed or Time Remaining
Bullet Arrow Tempo / Pitch value
Bullet Arrow Video Standards Setting (see explanation above) PAL/NTSC
Bullet Arrow Wave Form, graphical display of the volume of the track (100 pixels width)
Bullet Arrow Markers for points stored on the Memory Card
Bullet Arrow Blue Playing Address indicator, showing your position in the current track


The waveform is the big pointy bar in the center of the display. This is a graphical presentation of the audio volume of the track. 100 pixels are used to give an accurate reading, the maximum height of a bar is 7 dots. This is the same Waveform as used on the CDJ-1000MK3 and has the same specifications.

Audio CD's are read at about 6x speed. When DVD or MP3 music are played the Waveform read real-time, meaning the track has to play at least once for the full length to show the complete Waveform.

Jog Display

On the display that is mounted in the center of the jogwheel you have a visual marker for accurate Cue setting and scratching. When you set a Cue Point, that point will also be marked in the Jog Display by an orange marker. This reflects the stickers that scratchers use to mark the exact right spot... but now digital.

The Jog display gives you also other information like: Vinyl Activated (blue disc in center), Memory Status (flashing of the outer white ring in the center) and the location of the playing address (circling gap)

Cue Stutter Continue

Just like on any CDJ you can use the Cue Button to sample play from your Cue Point. As long as you hold the Cue Button the CDJ plays the track from the Cue Point onwards. When the cue Button is released the CDJ instantly returns to the Cue point and is ready for a restart. Continue playing after you used the Cue Stutter was until recently impossible.

Eject Canceling & Auto Resume Play

When you press the EJECT button, playback will stop and the player prepares for the Eject. Before it shows you 'EJECT' (about 1 second), you can cancel the Eject by pressing the Play Button. This will not stop the sound from stopping, but it continuous playing a lot faster than when it would perform a full Eject. When the disc does get ejected and is inserted it again, playback will continue from the point where it was ejected (track number and time is remembered). This point is being stored in the memory of the CDJ for as long as no other CD is inserted, or the power has been turned down.

And there are also the already familiar features that you will find on about any CDJ, DVJ or CMX product:
"Wide" Pitch Control
The pitch control function has an incredible range of +100/- 100% for audio CD's and -100%/+70% for DVD and MP3 discs. When combined with the Master Tempo functionality of the DVJ the digital effect can be used to uplift your performance even more.

Master Tempo

This world-famous function locks the pitch of a track at 0 position, even when its speed is changed. You can speed up or slow down the tempo without any difference to the sound of vocals and instruments. The pitch-bends that you do while cueing up your track will be unnoticeable for the audience. This function also makes it possible to mix-in an accapella tracks to a beat at nearly any tempo, you can even pitch-bend the accapella without notice.

Tempo Control

This 100 mm linear high-precision slider is connected to a adjustment indicator on the display panel to give DJs total control and ensure that tempo adjustment is easy and accurate. The accuracy declines when a higher pitch scale is selected, 0.02% (at +/- 6%). In the 10% and 16% range the accuracy is 0.05%. When the WIDE range (100%) is selected the accuracy is 0.1% which is small enough to do good mixing.

Tempo Control Range

Ranges of +/- 6%, +/-10%, +/-16% and WIDE range (CD:+/- 100%, MP3: +70%/-100%) can be assigned to the Tempo Control slider to offer a greater range of adjustment than on any previous Pioneer CDJ deck.

This pitch is more accurate if a smaller pitch setting is chosen:

+/- 6%  : 0.02%
+/- 10%: 0.05%
+/- 16%: 0.05%
+ WIDE : 0.5%

Tempo Control Reset

Resets the tempo to 0% of the original tempo of the track, regardless of the slider’s position. The button has been recessed to prevent accidental selection.

BPM Counter

Indicates BPM for the current track. The BPM counter also reads and displays the BPM when the player is in Pause. Without an headphone you can use it to cue up the tracks with an accuracy of 1 BPM, the rest is done with the headphones on your head.


Use this function to instantly set the playback direction in reverse without the loss of tempo or pitch. Reverse can also be used in combination with the Hot Cue and the Loop functions to create endless combinations and effects.

Real Time Seamless Loop

Set a loop quickly and simple, while a track is play. Once set, it can be looped continuously until the Reloop/Exit button is used. When released, the track continues without a pause.

To create a loop you press Loop-In and Loop-Out on the desired position on the CD. You can do this on-the-fly in real time, or you can use the jog/pause mode to get the exact position by editing the Loop In or Out Point.

Remember that the CUE point you set is the same as the Loop-In point. So you can also use the Loop-In button to set a CUE point on-the-fly.


Hit the Reloop button for instant access to the beginning of the loop stored in memory of the player. This can be done while the loop is playing, or at any time during the playback of a track. The last Loop is always stored in memory until replaced with a new loop.

Pitch Bend

Move the Jog Dial (in CDJ mode) forwards or backwards to either speed up or slow down the tempo of a track. When the player is in Vinyl mode only the outer ring of the jog gives you this feature, in CDJ mode all the jog behaves the same.

Jog Mode

The player can be set in either Vinyl or CDJ mode. In CDJ mode, the Jog Dial still functions, but without the touch sensitivity. Advise : Use Vinyl mode only ! to gain most benefits of your deck.

Auto Cue

This is the fastest way for DJs to find the first piece of audio of a track when activated. Also the level at which the Auto-Cue sets its point can be adjusted in a range of levels.

Fader Start / Back Cue Start

A track on the deck can be started by sliding the cross fader out of the corner. A connection to a Pioneer (or supporting) mixer with the supplied mini-jack to mini-jack cable is required. Also Auto Cue must be Activated. Sliding the fader back will return the track to the cue point previously selected on the unit.

Legato Link Pro

Pioneer’s wide range Legato Link Conversion technology delivers high quality audio by up scaling the sample rate of the sound. This regenerates the upper harmonics for best audio quality.


An oil-dampened floating suspension system prevents skipping, even when the player is subjected to impact during use or to vibrations generated by high volume music and/or low frequency bass.
