The CDJ-1000MK3 compact disc player is designed for use by
DJs providing all the functions and performance required in disco
clubs while offering performance, sound quality and functional-
ity superior to any analog player.
The large 206 mm diameter jog dial enables better handling
than an analog turntable.
¶ PITCH BEND
This function changes the music tempo depending on direction
of jog dial rotation and speed of movement.
¶ SCRATCH PLAY
In the VINYL mode when the surface of the jog dial is pressed
playback is discontinued and then continues according to the
direction and speed the dial is rotated. You can also adjust the
startup when the jog dial is touched and released to create new
¶ FRAME SEARCH
Moves the disc from pause position in frame increments (1/75
sec) when the jog dial is rotated in pause mode.
¶ SUPER FAST SEARCH
Rotate the jog dial while holding depressed the SEARCH button,
TRACK SEARCH button, or FOLDER SEARCH button. When this
is done, search will be performed faster than the normal search,
track search, or folder search operations.
¶ JOG ADJUST (Jog Sensitivity Adjustment)
This function allows you to adjust the felt resistance when rotat-
ing the jog dial.
ON JOG DISPLAY
The center of the jog dial displays information regarding disc sta-
tus, cue point position, sound memory status, jog dial touch-
detection, and VINYL mode.
This display makes it possible to find the breakpoint between
tracks in advance and use it as mix point or end point in the
same way as you can on an analog record by checking the posi-
tion of the needle in the groove.
This unit is equipped with a function allowing cue points and
loop points for individual discs to be recorded on SD memory
cards or MultiMedia Cards (MMC); the recorded data can then
be called up when playing the respective disc.
UP to three hot cue points (A, B, C) can be preset, thus allowing
playback to be performed instantly from either of those points.
The hot cue function can be used to record not only cue points,
but loop points as well.
Set the DIRECTION switch to its forward position ([REV] posi-
tion) to play the music backwards.
100 mm high-precision slider coupled with a 0.02 % incre-
ment digital display (within a ±6 % range) allows exact control of
speed to make tempo adjustments easy and accurate.
¶ TEMPO CONTROL RANGE
The maximum variable range can be set to four variable ranges:
±6 %, ±10 %, ±16 % and WIDE to facilitate adjustment.
¶ TEMPO CONTROL RESET
Resets the tempo to 0 % regardless of slider position.
¶ MASTER TEMPO
Changes music tempo without changing pitch.
¶ BACK CUE
After storing the cue point in memory, press the CUE button
while playing the unit to go back to the cue point and start over.
¶ AUTO CUE
Auto cue automatically locates the song’s start point even if it
differs from the track’s frame, allowing the player to start in-
stantly at a press of the PLAY button.
¶ CUE POINT SAMPLER
The sound from the memorized cue point can be reproduced by
one touch, which can be used as the start point check and the
REAL TIME SEAMLESS LOOP
This function simplifies setting and releasing loops. This func-
tion lets you set a loop while you are playing a track. A loop can
also be set at the end of the track so that the track does not
stop. In addition, an ADJUST mode has been added to enable
one-touch adjustments to Loop-in and Loop-out points and facili-
tate loop operation.
Allows you to replay a loop any number of times.
Press the RELOOP button after releasing loop play to return to
the loop start point. Clever use of on and off in combination with
the rhythm make it possible to create new sound effects.
This bar graph provides a visual representation of track playback
progress that enables you to see current playback position just
like you can on an analog record by checking needle position.
The length of the bar shows current position and a flashing bar
provides advance notice of track end.
Discs are loaded directly without opening doors or trays, making
track selection that much faster.
When a Pioneer DJ mixer (sold separately) is connected, the
mixer’s fader operation can be used to perform quick start and
