Features

Trying to find your gateway into modern DJing? Look no further than the MDJ-500 Professional Media Controller. It may be small, but this mighty unit has plenty of capabilities without the need for external software.

MDJ-500 – Tiny, Yet Fierce

A large 4.3-inch vivid full-color screen is the brilliant focal point of this unit, providing real-time visual feedback of your tracks. Full track information including Title, Time, BPM, and Pitch are clearly displayed alongside the precise full-size waveform window. You’ll appreciate the additional visual feedback for Slip Mode, Hot Cues and active Loops meaning you can confidently use scratches or hot cues without ruining your mix. The 100mm pitch fader ranges pitch from 4% to 100%; you’ll mix with surgical precision.

Fast Learning, Faster Results

The MDJ-500’s intuitive interface will have you spending less time learning and free up precious time for you to experiment with the 4 Hot Cues, Auto Loops and 5″ touch-sensitive jog wheel with LCD display and resistance control to Slip and Scratch. Bonus MIDI capabilities mean you can even control the parameters of your favorite DJ software directly from the unit, routing your audio through its 24-bit/192kHz soundcard. Of course, the MDJ-500 is fully compatible with our V-Case Library Management Software, which offers users a faster, easier way to manage their music libraries.
