Pioneer has just revealed a new professoinal DJ mixer, the Pioneer DJM-2000. The first in the industry for audio mixers, the DJM-2000 incorporates a full-color 5.8-inch LCD multi-touch panel for adding audio effects. Users can simultaneously manipulate the displayed controls on the panel by touching different areas of the screen. Three different performance modes are available.

The unit is small enough to bring with you on the road, but slightly larger than its predecessors. Its designed to match up with Pioneer’s CDJ-2000 digital media players allowing you to mix tracks with anything from CDs to USB drives. With four mixing channels and four USB inputs directly on the mixer, you can manipulate your audio sources with the multi-touch panel’s effects: frequency mix, allowing you to mix within seven frequency ranges.

Sidechain remix lets DJs create seven different dynamic audio effects with touches and movements on the screen, and MIDI mode, where you can assign various controls displayed on the LCD screen to control DJ software via MIDI.

The mixer will be available for about $3,000 in June of this year. [PioneerDj via Engadget]
