Denon DJ has announced a brand new DJ controller, the MC7000, a feature-heavy 4-channel unit with two built-in soundcards. That means that two DJs can be using the setup at the same time with two different laptops, which until now was only possible on the Pioneer DDJ-SZ. Keep reading for a video overview and all the details.
Denon DJ MC7000
We often see a few bits of DJ gear get announced around this time of year â€“ the week of the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Denon DJ is going big with this announcement of the MC7000. At first glance, this is effectively is a non-standalone, no-screens version of the MCX-8000 that was unveiled earlier this year.
- Gear: MC7000
- Manufacturer: Denon DJ
- Price: $999 retail
- Availability: In stores Fall 2016 â€“ get a preorder notification by signing up here.
The biggest feature that is being championed on this controller is two discrete USB audio interfaces, allows DJs to trade-off seamlessly, or to concurrently use the unit to mix back to back.
MC7000 Feature Set
- 16 Velocity-Sensitive Performance Pads
- New Dedicated Key Matching and Changing Controls
- Solid 6-inch Touch-Capacitive Platters with Tracking LED
- 2 Mic Inputs with Dedicated Controls
- XLR Booth and Master connections
- 4-Channel DJ Controller with Digital Mixer
- Dual USB Audio Interfaces
- 3 Serato Expansion Packs Included (Pitch ?n Time, Flip, and Video; worth $200)
- Solid Compact Design
With this level of feature-set and included software, itâ€™s becoming pretty clear that Denon DJ / InMusic (which includes Numark) is very serious about taking on Pioneer DJ, who have dominated the controller market over the last two to three years.
For $999, itâ€™s not a bad price either. For comparison, the Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ is $1,997 â€“ and aside from some onboard effects, thereâ€™s not that much that it does that the MC7000 doesnâ€™t have.
