DJ Controllers | Announcing DEX 3 Support For The Denon DJ MC4000

DEX 3 DJ software with MC4000 DJ controller

The Denon DJ MC4000 Map for DEX 3 is now available for download.

Denon DJ touts the MC4000 DJ controller as “A peerless combination of features and build quality for professionals.” As fans of Denon DJ controllers (DEX 3 supports the MC6000 MKII an MC3000 already), the PCDJ team agrees this is one solidly built modestly sized DJ controller that doesn’t short DJs on functionality.

The MC4000 is a 2-deck controller designed for the professional entertainer. Mobile DJs looking for a smaller form-factor DJ controller that’s road-worthy due to it’s robust steel chassis the MC4000 is likely a great fit. The MC4000’s long-throw 100mm pitch faders are a welcomed plus, and the units overall intuitive layout delivers natural operation. A fanciful addition you typically do not see with DJ controllers at this price point (only $399 USD!) is balanced booth outputs, which feeds the signal to a set of local monitor speakers near the DJ, with the ability to adjust the booth level independent of the main level.

DEX 3 supports all MC4000 features, including the precision touch-activated jog wheels, dedicated hot cue and sample pads for on-the-fly creativity.
