It’s been a while, but now Pioneer has announced the launch of two new DJ controllers: the DDJ-FLX4 & the DDJ-FLX6-GT.

Rekkerd reports that the DDJ-FLX4 is the brand’s new entry-level DJ controller. While it utilizes many features you’ll find on the DDJ-400, the user-friendly layout of the DDJ-FLX4 is set to make budding DJs learn the skills easier. Meanwhile, the DDJ-FLX6-GT is replacing the DDJ-FLX6…

The Pioneer DDJ-FLX4

The Pioneer DDJ-FLX4 is a new entry-level DJ controller that utilizes many characteristics of the DDJ-400 DJ controller. However, its user-friendly layout is set to make learning to DJ easier.

DJ Tech Tools reports that, unlike the DDJ-400 which is limited to Pioneer’s rekordbox, you actually have a choice of DJ software that you can mix music with. Additionally, you can use the free Performance mode of rekordbox on Mac & Windows systems, but in early 2023 rekordbox for iOS & Android is getting a major update. As a result, you’ll be able to use the DDJ-FLX4 with your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad, or Android tablet!

Meanwhile, Serato DJ Lite comes free with the DDJ-FLX4, and you can upgrade to Serato DJ Pro by purchasing a license or subscribing. Ultimately, you can play tracks from your computer hard drive or tracks from TIDAL, Beatport, Beatsource, and SoundCloud Go+ (paid subscriptions may be required).

The DDJ-FLX4 is on sale for $299.

The Pioneer DDJ-FLX6-GT 4

The DDJ-FLX6-GT is a 4-channel DJ controller that’s replacing the DDJ-FLX6 controller. The new iteration brings a new design, a new color scheme, and support for Virtual DJ!

The DDJ-FLX6-GT’s new look and its full-size jog wheels with their graphite color, metallic texture, and rubber coating on their outer rings give the new controller a bold new feel and improved playability. And the rest of the controller has a new sophisticated design too with a matte gray color across its body.

Like the DDJ-FLX4, the FLX6-GT lets you connect to a variety of software. You’ll have access to the free version of Virtual DJ, and free compatibility with rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro.

However, you can use the Virtual DJ software with the original DDJ-FLX6 DJ controller by updating the v of the controller to the latest version.

Finally, you can also use Native Instruments’s TRAKTOR PRO 3 DJ controller with the DDJ-FLX4 & DDJ-FLX6-GT 4, but you’ll need to download essential the mapping files (TSI file).

The DDJ-FLX6-GT is available now for $649.

Get access to premium audio samples for the best price on the market. For as little as $2.99 a month, you can download royalty-free one-shots, loops, sound effects, and full sample packs from top producers.
