Pioneer DJ has replaced the smallest mixer in its mixer range, the DJM-250, with the new DJM-250Mk2. A compact and durable mixer it comes with a built-in sound card and Rekordbox DJ and Rekordbox DVS also in the box. Alongside this boasts a Magvel professional crossfader plus per-channel two-parameter hardware filters.

Its condensed size means it will collaborate well with media players such as Pioneer's XDJ-700.

Although it has the same size factor as the XDJ-700 media players, it is designed for bedrooms or more compact DJ set-ups, as it can be seen as a modern take on the classic two-channel mixer design.

Feautring the ability to run a microphone and auxiliary at the same time it also has the two main channels, and the full three-band isolator EQs.

Technologically and licence-wise, it is ready for Rekordbox DVS with no external audio interface or extra software plug-ins needed. The bundled software along sells separately for €248). Users will also have to provide their own Rekordbox timecode vinyl if they want to use it with turntables.

The DJM-250Mk2 mixer has both RCA and XLR master outs and inputs for Aux and Mic. Users can also just plug into their computer to mix Rekordbox music using Pioneer players such as the XDJ-700s, effectively giving full hardware control over Rekordbox DJ software, as if both media players and mixer were a DJ controller.

The DJM-250Mk2 is available this month and will cost €349.
