Gear Review: Denon DJ MCX8000 Controller



Looking for a higher-end controller with an award-winning resumé? The Denon DJ MCX8000 may be exactly what you're looking for. It just won the 2016 DJ Mag Tech Award for Ultimate DJ Controller, and the reviews are impressive. Check out the feedback and some cool videos of dj routines using the MCX8000:

'The Denon DJ MCX8000 makes a compelling case for itself: you're getting top-end build, features and sound, real flexibility, and a unit that is a pleasure to DJ on, for less than any of the comparable competition, putting the MCX8000 currently into a class of its own.' - Digital DJ Tips

'The Denon DJ MCX8000 is as good a Serato DJ controller as you can get right now. And the standalone Engine operation is a solid signal for the future of Denon DJ.' - DJWorx.com

A couple impressive routines from DJ Undoo and LigOne on the MCX8000:

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
