We featured the exclusive look at the hot new CDJ-400 (£449 Pioneerdj ) in last issues tech pages. The incredible feature list makes it an attractive deal for those on the hunt for a high performance, workhorse deck. But the story doesn't stop there. The bods at Pioneer have surprised us by adding soundcard capabilities to this beast, making it a real all rounder for all kinds of DJing. The USB port on the rear of the unit will stream audio from a computer to the CDJ-400, which then connects to a mixer using the usual RCA jacks. Audio and Midi control makes it an ideal deck for Traktor etc.
