The CDJ-850 builds on the DNA of its predecessor, the CDJ-800MK2 and adds some serious enhancements. With its full-sized jog wheels, large screen and pro-DJ features, it feels and functions like a CDJ-900NXS or CDJ-2000NXS – without the top-flight price tag. The CDJ-850 is rekordbox-ready or you can use the USB-HID interface to control the DJ software of your choice.
It still plays your MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF files stored on USB devices.
The large screen displays track information including title, artist and BPM and waveforms, while the rotary knob makes browsing and selecting tracks a breeze.
This unit supports USB-HID control of Serato Audio Research's Serato DJ Pro and Scratch Live DJ software without using a control disk.
Tag tracks to add them to your Tag List then re-order the list to create a set list as you DJ.
Press the Auto Beat Loop buttons to set 1, 2, 4, or 8 beat loops that are precisely snapped to the rekordbox beat grid.
