Enhance your creative power with our evolved flagship multi player, the CDJ-3000. This robust unit is powered by a new MPU and packed with specially developed high-quality components and innovative features.
The MPU (micro-processing unit) is the first we’ve ever put in a CDJ. It drives the unit, delivering stable performance and enabling advanced new features, and creates a smoother overall DJ experience.
Compatible with rekordbox CloudDirectPlay
Simply connect the CDJ-3000 to the internet via a Pro DJ Link connection with a LAN cable to start using rekordbox CloudDirectPlay. In advance, you’ll export an authentication key from rekordbox to a USB storage device which, when plugged into the CDJ-3000, enables you to browse and play all the tracks in your cloud-based library.
*rekordbox Creative or Professional plan subscription is required.
Enhanced performance and rock-solid stability
Have faith in the decks. As well as expanded creative options, the CDJ-3000 brings even more stability and reliability to your setup.
We’ve revolutionised the way the CDJ is driven with its new MPU, making it smoother and more stable than its predecessors. The MPU’s processing power allows for new functions and lets us introduce more features in future updates.
Pro DJ Link with Gigabit ethernet
Thanks to the Gigabit Ethernet connection for Pro DJ Link, you can share and play audio files from USB devices and SD cards on up to 6 CDJ-3000 units when you combine them with a compatible 6-channel mixer such as the DJM-V10.
Better screen visibility
The maximum screen brightness has been improved by more than 150% compared to that on the CDJ-2000NXS2, so you can crank it up depending on the environment you’re playing in and improve visibility.
The high-quality aluminium top plate and redesigned play, cue, and Hot Cue buttons are stronger than ever. Also, the lockable V-Lock power cable* guards against accidental disconnections that could interrupt your show.
Full audio file caching
The cache of the CDJ-3000 can now handle a full audio file. This means a track will continue to play until the end – even if there’s an unexpected problem such as poor connection of the LAN cable in the Pro DJ Link network.
Enhanced audio design
We’ve poured more than 25 years’ worth of experience into creating the ultimate DJ sound, which faithfully reproduces the audio of each track as the producer intended it to be heard while also reflecting the most intricate details of your performance.
Realistic spatial sound and a more musical bass sound
The CDJ-3000 unifies audio calculation processing to 96 kHz/32-bit floating in all playable audio formats . Hear the nuances of the original sound source – like depth, ambience, and shifts in the timbre of the low range – for realistic spatial sound and a musical bass sound.
A natural sound – easy to listen to for long, high-volume sets
To maximise performance from the DAC (digital-to-analog converter), we’ve improved the circuit that outputs analog audio. We’ve also tuned the digital audio for optimum sound quality, hugely reducing digital noise, to create a natural sound that will keep crowds listening.
9-inch, high-resolution touch screen
With its bigger and clearer touch screen , we’ve added extra info, shortcuts, and buttons for useful features such as Playlist and Search. Customise the info you want, set your own preferences and swipe to navigate. The improved workflow makes track browsing easier.
Audition any part of a track by touching its waveform in the right place in the browse section. With multiple CDJ-3000 players connected to the DJM-V10 or DJM-900NXS2 mixer via Pro DJ Link, you can even preview tracks from another player with Link Cue.
Listen to another part of the track that’s playing by touching the waveform – the crowd won’t hear you. Learn the progression of a track and identify a mix point — useful during DJ handovers and back-to-back sets. Use Link Cue to listen to a track on another player.
Keep an eye on the enlarged waveform of the track on the master player and the one you want to cue up, all on one screen. Identify mix points and visually check the beatgrids are perfectly lined up at a glance.
Support for 3Band Waveform
Understand a track’s sound without even listening to it. 3Band Waveform uses different colours to show the volume of each frequency band in files analysed by rekordbox, so you can see a track’s composition at a glance. RGB and blue waveform options are also available.
Key Sync and Key Shift
Hit the Key Sync button and the CDJ-3000 will automatically adjust the key of the next track to match the one on the master deck, helping you craft a smooth and harmonic mix. With Key Shift on the touch screen, you can manually shift the key of a track up or down.
Our smoothest-ever jog wheel
Effortlessly scratch and smoothly bend the pitch of tracks. We’ve redesigned the jog wheel so it feels slicker than ever, with a reduced touch latency. The LCD screen in the centre shows playhead position and artwork for a quick visual reminder of loaded tracks.
Rebuilt range-leading performance interface
Get hands-on with the redesigned controls and new features of the CDJ-3000 – all arranged in a way that lets you play the CDJ like it’s a musical instrument.
Eight Hot Cue buttons
Intuitively trigger Hot Cues via the 8 buttons that run from left to right underneath the waveform display. The linear positioning makes it feel more natural to select cue points according to their position in the track.
Dedicated Beat Jump buttons
Jump forward or backward from the current playback position in the track by pressing the dedicated Beat Jump buttons. You can set the quantized number of beats to a value of 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 beats.
Advanced Auto Beat Loop section
As well as the popular 4-Beat Loop control from the CDJ-2000NXS2, the CDJ-3000 includes an 8-Beat Loop button for further creative options. Want to make polyrhythmic loops? Use the expanded options for odd-numbered loops to remix sounds on the fly.
Flexible performance options
Play rekordbox-analysed music from USB drives via Export mode. Connect a laptop with USB-HID control to use Link Export or use Performance mode for free. Or connect your iPhone to the CDJ-3000 via a USB cable with a Lightning to USB3 Camera Adapter (sold separately) and mix from rekordbox for iOS.
Sync sound and visuals for better performances
You can sync lighting, video displays, and pyrotechnics in real-time with audio played on the CDJ-3000, enabling you to craft more engaging performances.
Pro DJ Link with enhanced lighting support
Sync your sounds with lights thanks to compatibility with the new Pro DJ Link Lighting feature. The CDJ-3000 sends phrase analysis information to rekordbox (PC/Mac) so you can control lighting effects via the RB-DMX1 (available separately) and take your show to the next level.
