When you're performing you need to know the decks can make your creative vision a reality and handle everything you throw at them. As Pioneer DJ's most advanced player ever, the CDJ-3000 has been designed to do that and more. The new MPU powering the deck is a first for any CDJ, it drives the unit, delivering stable performance and enabling advanced new features, and it works with other parts of the player to create a smoother DJ experience.

The best just got better!
- Key Features
Pioneer have revolutionised the way the CDJ is driven and made it work in a smoother, more stable way than any of its predecessors. The MPU’s processing power enables exciting new functions that weren’t possible before and allows the introduction of more features via future updates.
Pro DJ Link with Gigabit Ethernet
With Gigabit Ethernet for Pro DJ Link, you can share and play audio files from USB devices and SD cards on up to six CDJ-3000 units.
Better screen visibility
The maximum screen brightness has been improved by more than 150% compared to that on the CDJ-2000NXS2 improving visibility.
The high-quality aluminum top plate and redesigned play, cue, and Hot Cue buttons are stronger than ever before.
Enhanced audio design
The CDJ-3000 unifies internal audio calculation processing to 96 kHz/32-bit floating in all playable audio formats making it the best sounding deck that Pioneer DJ has ever produced. As a result your audience will hear the true sound of the music and every nuance of your performance.
9-inch, high-resolution touch screen
With a touch screen that’s bigger and clearer than the previous generations the CDJ-3000 now shows extra information, shortcuts, and buttons for frequently used categories and functions. The interface will feel familiar to CDJ-2000NXS2 users and now you can now swipe on the screen to navigate and use the sort function to rearrange the track list. All this makes for an improved workflow and helps you to browse tracks more instinctively.
Listen to any part of a track you want to preview by simply touching its waveform in the relevant place in the browse section. If you have multiple CDJ-3000 players connected with the DJM-V10 or DJM-900NXS2 mixer via Pro DJ Link, you can even preview tracks from another player thanks to Link Cue.
Listen to another part of the track that’s currently playing by touching the waveform – the crowd won’t hear what you’re doing. This comes in handy when you need to familiarize yourself with the progression of a track to identify a mix point, especially during DJ handovers and back-to-back sets.
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
3Band Waveform uses different colors to indicate the volume of each frequency band in files analyzed by rekordbox so you can see the composition of the music just by looking at the waveform.
Mix in perfect harmony
Hit the Key Sync button and the CDJ-3000 will automatically adjust the key of the incoming track to match the one playing 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.
Smoothest-ever jog wheel
The redesigned mechanism inside the jog wheel feels slicker than any unit CDJ ever made, and the touch latency has been halved compared to the CDJ-2000NXS2. The LCD screen in the center indicates playhead position and displays artwork for a quick visual reminder of which tracks are loaded on each deck.
Eight Hot Cue buttons
Intuitively trigger Hot Cues via the eight 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 possibilities. Want to make polyrhythmic loops? Use the expanded options for odd-numbered loops to remix sounds on the fly.
