unveiling of the DVJ-X1 hails a new era in the future of video remixing. The turntable-like device is designed to let you scratch DVDs
like records. As a result, anything you could do before with vinyl can now be done with DVD video.
The device lets you manipulate and playback synchronized audio and video, perform
realtime digital video scratching, loop, cue, reverse and pitch shift. It also
has a built-in emergency mix fix button that automatically generates four beats
in time with the BPM, to give you a moment of reprise before jumping in with your
next dynamic. The DVJ-X1
has on-board memory, plus an SD card slot, allowing for additional AV loop and
cut point storage.
Cue It Up
The DVJ-X1 can memorize up to three cue points per DVD/CD. You can then recall these points by
hitting any of the A, B or C buttons, just like a mini sampler!
You can also quickly find the beginning of a track with the Auto Cue function.
Further, you can set the sound level to suit your particular sonic taste
(-36db to 78db).
The Role of Reversal
Control reversal with a flickable switch, with no threat of losing tempo or
pitch. Immediately use your flipped signal within any track without stopping.
The Reverse function can also be used with other functions like Hot Cue and the Loop Sampler.
Once you set a loop on the DVJ-X1, it will loop continuously until you hit the
ReLoop / Exit button. No worries, though. The DVJ-X1 will not halt or skip, and
your track will continue playing without any pause. Then, if you want to start
the loop again, just hit the ReLoop button again and go! You can also easily
adjust the Out point of any of your stored loops.
Hitting the Reloop button will instantly take you back to the beginning of any
loop stored in the DVJ-X1s memory, even if the loop is currently playing.
or at any time while the current track is playing. The loop will remain stored in
memory until replaced with a new loop.
Secure Digital Memory
The DVJ-X1 lets you store Wave data and Cue and Loop
points with a thumbnail image (for DVD memory points only). This data
can be stored on a removable memory card (SD) or within the players internal memory.
The removable SD card can also be used in any DVJ-X1, so once you have stored
your favorite cue and loop points, you can take them with you. (A 16MB SD card is
supplied with the player and will hold up to 500 memory points.)
Control DVDs and CDs with the DVJ-X1s high-quality aluminium buttons,
including Track Search, Search, Cue and Play / Pause. Plus, all of the standard
DVD controls available, including four-way directional control, Enter, Menu, Track
Menu and Setup
Jog It, Baby
Quickly scroll through saved cue and loop points
with the Jog wheel and cue your track with a huge, touch-sensitive jog dial
designed to emulate the control characteristics of a vinyl turntable,
combined with all of the features from Pioneers industry standard CDJ range of CD players. The DVJ-X1 offers a feel similar to the familiar CDJ-1000MK2.
The DVJ-X1 can be set in either Vinyl or CDJ mode. While in CDJ mode, the jog
dial functions just like a Pioneer CDJ player, but without the touch sensitivity.
When the DVJ-X1 is in vinyl mode, the top of the jog dial functions much like a
vinyl turntable pressing down will stop the music and allow you to scratch or cue
your track by rotating the jog dial in either direction.

The DVJ-X1 Is Ready To Gig
Two DVJ-X1s and a Microphone
You can easily connect two DVJ-X1s with a standard 3.5mm mini-plug
cable, to allow one unit to standby while the other one plays. A Relay Play function will
automatically start the second player, enabling the duo to play back to back.
High Quality Sound Conversion
The DVJ-X1 is equipped with Pioneers wide-range technology Legato
Link Conversion. Therefore, this sweet device is capable of reproducing
sound frequencies above 20kHz, which would be lost during normal CD-format
playback. Not only does this give your great sound reproduction, but your links
will sound way closer to the original recording and a lot more analog, like vinyl
Built to Handle Impact
The DVJ-X1s oil-dampened floating suspension prevents sound skipping, even
when subjected to impact during use, or the vibrations generated from high volume
music and low frequency bass. Further, sound jumps and skipping are prevented the
DVJ-X1s 16-second shock-proof memory (for normal DVD/CD play minimum of 10
seconds if scratching and reading wave data at the same time in Vinyl mode). The
DVJ-X1 is also equipped with safety guards around the power and eject buttons,
and has a locking feature to prevent accidental CD ejection or loss of power to the mains.
The DVJ-X1 is equipped with full-feature digital output so you can keep your
scratching and master tempo playback in the digital domain. Users who want to use
the digital output for archival purposes can also do so via the digital mode
switch on the rear of the unit.
Control Your Tempo
A 100mm linear high precision slider is connected to a 0.02% (at +/- 6% and +/-
10%) adjustment indication on the DVJ-X1s display panel. This gives you
total control and ensures that your tempo adjustment is easily and accurately
deployed. You can assign ranges of +/- 6%, +/-10%, +/-16% and +/-100% to the
Tempo Control slider. And there is a recessed emergency Tempo Control Reset
button that will reset the tempo to 0% or original tempo of the track regardless
of the slider position.
It Can Read Everything!
The DVJ-X1 can read DVD Video, DVD-R
(Video mode), DVD-RW (Video mode), CD, CD-R and CD-RW disks.
Pitch Bend It
Speed up or slow down the tempo of your video and audio depending on the
direction the jog dial is rotated either forward or reverse.
Master Your Tempo
Pioneers Master Tempo locks the pitch of the audio track even if you
change the speed. So you can go ahead and speed up or slow down the beat without any noticeable
difference in how the vox or instruments sound.
Cueing It Up Manually
Cue points can be set anywhere on the DVD/CD using either the
Vinyl or CDJ mode. Adjustments are made by using either the jog dial or manual
search buttons. The cue point is automatically stored in the internal memory (If
SD is inserted in DVJ-X1, the cue point is automatically stored in the SD.) until
it is overwritten with a new cue point.
