DJM-250MK2 2-channel mixer with pro-grade features and built-in sound card

Pioneer DJ has upgraded one of its popular 2-channel mixers to create the DJM-250MK2. The new mixer is the entry point into the DJM series and is packed with professional features including the Magvel crossfader and Sound Color FX filter from the DJM-900NXS2. With its own built-in sound card, the DJM-250MK2 offers high-quality audio and can be connected to any set-up, while the clear-cut controls let the user scratch and mix instinctively.

The clear layout of the DJM-250MK2’s lower half gives freedom to perform complicated scratch techniques. The Magvel crossfader, inherited from their flagship DJM-900NXS2 mixer, feels accurate and assured, and it is highly durable- capable of approximately 10 million movements. The user can also perform seamless blended mixes on the DJM-250MK2 using the smooth channel faders.

The upper half of the new mixer packs in several features including 3-band isolators, which can be used to completely eliminate the chosen frequency range. Each channel has its own filter inherited from the Sound Color FX on the DJM-900NXS2, which can be applied by twisting the dedicated knob and then by adding texture with the separate parameter knob.

Warm and high-quality audio from both analogue and digital sound sources comes as a result of the DJM-250MK2’s dithering technology. The built-in sound card means the user can connect the mixer to your PC/Mac with a single USB cable and use the bundled rekordbox dj application to mix music files stored on their computer via Pioneer DJ multi players. If the user likes to DJ using digital files but prefer the feel of vinyl, they can use rekordbox dj with rekordbox dvs plus pack application, which is also included to control the tracks stored on their computer with turntables and our control vinyl that is available separately.


Magvel crossfader, smooth channel faders and 3-band isolators

The Magvel crossfader – taken from the flagship DJM-900NXS2 mixer is accurate, smooth and durable for more than 10 million movements. Precise and fluid mixes are a breeze using the mixer’s channel faders and the 3-band isolators give precision across the highs, mids and lows. The user can use them to totally eliminate each frequency range when you turn the knob all the way to the left.

Flagship filter with nuanced control

Get creative in the mix using the filter inherited from the Sound Color FX on the flagship DJM-900NXS2 mixer. Simply turn the knob on each channel to apply the filter and then create unique textures by twisting the parameter knob to adjust resonance and add tension to the performance.

Built-in sound card and easy recording

Connect the DJM-250MK2 to PC/Mac using a single USB cable. The USB connection supports sound input and output, so that the user can record mixes to their computer’s hard drive.

Bundled licences for rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs

The DJM-250MK2 comes with free licence keys for professional dj performance applications, rekordbox dj that requires rekordbox version 4.3.0 or higher, available from 1st of March 2017, and rekordbox dvs. The user can use them together to play digital tracks from PC/Mac using either multi players or turntables and control vinyl.
