The Pioneer CDJ-1000 is an extremely popular digital turntable (2001) still utilized in most dance clubs across the world. It is engineered to handle CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs, and is considered the first CD-based turntable that accurately imitates a conventional vinyl turntable — including even the ability to chop, scratch, and screw. Nowadays, the original CDJ-1000MK1 — as it’s formally known as — has been deprecated due to the release of new and more formidable versions, such as the MK2 and MK3. Regardless, pivotal features that remain constant include a large touch-sensitive platter with a digital display for tracking position; an orange Cue marker for scratching; a waveform display for anticipating upcoming tracks; and a master tempo-function for changing music speed, while keeping the pitch constant.
