AlphaTheta Corporation announces the release of the DDJ-FLX4 from its Pioneer DJ brand. This 2-channel controller for multiple DJ applications has a professional feel and a simple, user-friendly design that’s perfect for beginners who want to learn how to DJ.
The DDJ-FLX4 is an affordable unit that inherits key traits from the professional layout of the DDJ-400 – a standard for entry-level controllers – but its user-friendly design makes learning to DJ easier. There’s a choice of DJ software to mix music with, including free use of Performance mode in rekordbox for Mac/Windows. And when the major update to rekordbox for iOS/Android comes out in early 2023, you’ll be able to use the DDJ-FLX4 with your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad, or Android tablet. Serato DJ Lite is also free to use with the controller, and you can upgrade to Serato DJ Pro if you buy a license or take out a subscription. All these software options give you the choice to play music files stored on your device, as well as tracks from TIDAL, Beatport Streaming, Beatsource Streaming, and SoundCloud Go+ (paid subscriptions may be required).
You’ll find it easy to start DJing when you get your hands on the DDJ-FLX4, even if you’re a complete beginner. The design is clean and user-friendly so you can find your way around the controls, and you’ll find plenty of tutorials in rekordbox to guide you through the basics. There are two brand-new features that make it easy to create professional sounding mixes too: Smart Fader for effortless transitions between two tracks, and Smart CFX, which applies combinations of effects to the music with the turn of a single knob.
When you’re ready to share your performances with friends and followers, the DDJ-FLX4 is the perfect piece of kit. Its USB audio output of the sound from the microphone means you don’t need external equipment such as a mixer or soundcard to add your voice to your mix. Instead, the sound from the microphone is output from the controller along with the music, so you can easily share your set via a stream from a single computer.
Talking about the release of the DDJ-FLX4, Yoshinori Kataoka, President and CEO of AlphaTheta Corporation said, “DJing is a truly unique artform; its ability to evoke strong emotions and create deep connections between music and people is incredibly powerful. We’re developing products that make it easy for people with no experience to start DJing by utilizing the technology, high-quality manufacturing, and knowledge we’ve cultivated over the years. I hope the DDJ-FLX4 can help people take their first steps in learning the art of mixing and to start their DJ journey.”
