"DeadMau5 uses a very unique setup. He’s running [Abelton Live](http://equipboard.com/items/ableton-live-8) on a 17" [MacBook Pro](http://equipboard.com/items/apple-macbook-pro) outputting to an [Apoge Ensemble](http://equipboard.com/items/apogee-ensemble-firewire-audio-interface) soundcard to which he is running 4 stereo outs from his Ensemble to whatever club mixer is at hand, in this case, a Pioneer DJM-800." - [TySymes12345](http://tysymesblogger.blogspot.nl/).more
Prior to using the newer DJM-900 Nexus mixer, Aoki used this DJM-800.
DJM is a range of DJ mixers made by Pioneer Electronics.
Mixers in the DJM series include the DJM-300,DJM-350,DJM-400, DJM-500, DJM-600, DJM-700,DJM-750, DJM-707, DJM-800, DJM-850, DJM-900 nexus, DJM-909, DJM-1000and the DJM-2000. They also have many cueing facilities and effects that can be applied to any channel, in conjunction with the CDJ range of CD players made by Pioneer, with the control wire plugged in between mixer and CDJ-type CD player, so that either can be started/stopped remotely by the other (Relay Play) or with the so-called 'Fader Start' of the mixer.
Key feature for Pioneer is the BPM tempo synchronised sound effects section (world first) and VU meter for each channel. The DJM-909 was the world's first mixer with a LCD Touch sensitive control.
The mixers of the latest digital generation all have 32-bit DSPs so, they have much better sound quality.
Digital Processing Models : DJM-250, DJM-350, DJM-400, DJM-700, DJM-750, DJM-850, DJM-900NXS, DJM-900SRT, DJM-1000, DJM-2000NXS, DJM-900NXS2
Analog Processing Models : DJM-300, DJM-500, DJM-600*, DJM-800, DJM-707, and DJM-909*
"*" = While the FX on these units are digital, the unprocessed signal from the playback device, i.e. turntables, will remain analog throughout.
This is a great 4 channel mixer. It has all the goodies and if you are a mid level dj I would suggest this mixer for starters. The only thing I can complain about is the size. It is very big and somewhat bulkier than the djm 900.
