WNAMM09: New DJ Audio Interface


Native Instruments have introduced Audio 4DJ, a performance-optimized USB 2.0 audio interface specifically designed for Traktor and other DJ software. Here's the details from their press release...
With its versatile feature set, outstanding audio quality, extremely low latency, and its compact and robust aluminium casing, Audio 4DJ is the ideal centerpiece for a wide range of club and studio setups. Based on the acclaimed Audio 8 DJ interface that is also at the heart of Native Instruments' TRAKTOR SCRATCH DJ system, the new Audio 4DJ offers a 4-in/4-out configuration with the same pristine audio quality, but with an even smaller footprint and at a more affordable price. Two stereo inputs with software-switchable phono preamps allow DJs to connect turntables, CD decks and music production gear for various live performance and recording purposes. Two stereo outputs provide the necessary connectivity for routing two decks into an external DJ mixer, or outputting a separate master and cue signal when mixing in software. All audio connections are in RCA format for straightforward interfacing with DJ equipment.
Audio 4DJ is equipped with studio-quality 24bit/96 kHz audio converters from Cirrus Logic that provide crystal-clear treble and rich bass response, and features special high-gain output stages that deliver a powerful +10dBu signal with additional headroom. Low-latency operation down to less than 4ms enables the high degree of precision and responsiveness that professional DJ performances rely on. Audio 4DJ also features a ground point for turntables and an adjustable headphone output, as well as signal level LEDs for all inputs and outputs. The interface is completely bus-powered, making a cumbersome AC adapter unnecessary.
Audio 4DJ comes as a full-featured DJ system due to the inclusion of TRAKTOR LE, a compact version of Native Instruments' TRAKTOR software that offers two decks with high-quality time-stretching, an integrated mixer, performance effects, loop and cueing functions, and a powerful track database. All owners of Audio 4DJ can also take advantage of a discounted upgrade to the full-featured TRAKTOR PRO software at any time.
Pricing and Availability:
AUDIO 4 DJ is available now for a suggested retail price of $249 / 229 ¬ at authorized dealers and in the NI Online Shop. More information:
