Pioneer’s DJM-707 is 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.

THERE IS NO BLACK DJM-707 !
Allthough there were a few models of the DJM-707 in black, it were only test samples. Far before final introduction the decision was made that The Pioneer DJM-707 would only be available in the color SILVER
The DJM-909 would be available in the colour BLACK. There are no black models of the DJM-707 available in stores, eventhough some shop show the picture of the black model : It's NOT available
(nor will it ever be).
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.
Most importantly, 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 fader.
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 module.
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 different functions!
Each 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.
