Day 259: Dawn of a new species arrives.

Good morning early crew!

Today Pioneer launch their hotly anticipated, er, *thing*. It's been kept so much under wraps that we don't even know what it's called, or, really what it is.

We do know it is their new flagship DJ controller/Deck, so it is safe to assume that it is the successor to the CDJ1000.

We know it is likely (ok certain) to allow USB storage attachment instead of (or actually as well as) CDs. Also we know there is a software element, that allows for set preparation, looping and I suspect effects.

So in short it looks like they are directly aiming at removing the need to bring a laptop into the equation, replace all that functionality, and tighten up the CDJ1000 with all the new features that DJs expect these days. Sounds pretty good to me!

The unit launches today, sometime after 8, hence the early post, as for once I gotta work :(

So no doubt will dissect the deck fully tomorrow, in the meantime here is the last in the series of teaser videos!
