Update: The CDJ-2000 Nexus has been announced.  Click here.

Pioneer just dropped a teaser on what looks like its next generation flagship CDJ.  Pioneer DJ – An Evolution.  As a CDJ-2000 user, I’m absolutely excited.  Based on what I’ve seen, this new CDJ might have the following key features:

  1. Multi-deck sync.  There was a “Master” button as well as a “Master” indicator under the BPM display.  Laidback Luke also commented on “staying on time”.
  2. Wireless.  I think this is a given based on Pioneer’s recently announced XDJ-Aero.
  3. Zoomable single colour waveform display.
  4. Pads/buttons that launch samples.

The most curious comment was from Armin Van Buuren: “I can really now see what I’m doing like records back in the day.”  I wonder if this means a better display on the jog wheel.

edit: Head over to DJ Worx as Mark Settle has a more in depth perspective of this.
