Product information

Replacing the CDJ-800MK2, the CDJ-850 offers some major enhancements over its predecessor. This deck is designed to feel and function like a CDJ-900 or CDJ-2000 and is rekordbox enabled, while maintaining an affordable price.

No matter what source – CD, USB (flash drive or disk) or straight from PC or Mac* – this deck is suitable for your way of working. MP3, AAC, AIFF and WAV (up to professional 24-bit WAV) files are supported.

It’s also rekordbox compatible, meaning that using the free rekordbox software, you can beforehand prepare and manage your tracks on your PC for an extra smooth DJ set.
But you can also easily create your set on the fly. With the Tag List feature, you can plan 20 or even more tracks ahead. Unique to the CDJ-850, you can even add, remove and change the order of the tracks in the list. Wave Display allows you to see peaks and drops in your tracks, helping you make fluent mixes between tracks.


Full-size jog wheel and other pro features
Just like the CDJ-900 and 2000, the CDJ-850 has a full-size 206 mm jog wheel for a professional feel and performance, and a large screen.
The USB HID interface allows you to use more complex DJ software without a control disk.
Additional features include Auto Beat Loop Function, Tempo Variation, CD Resume function and vibration resistance.
* Computer playback via MIDI control of 3rd party DJ software (not included) or when in soundcard mode.

Prepared For Any Performance
Adapting to today’s variety of media formats, the CDJ-850 enables playback of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF audio files from CDs and USB memory devices. A USB port located on top of the turntable enables users to quickly connect an external storage device such as a hard drive packed with music files, minimizing the need to bring a laptop computer to performances.
The CDJ-850 turntable includes rekordbox™, Pioneer’s proprietary music management software that organizes and catalogs a DJ’s entire music library. When music files are imported to rekordbox, the software analyzes each file and prepares them for use specifically with the CDJ turntable.

Tag List Function
The CDJ-850 comes with our Tag List function, which allows a song to be easily registered with the press of a button while playing or selecting a song, so a future playlist can be created. The order of songs in the Tag List can be changed and the list can be saved as a playlist in rekordbox™.

Advanced Auto Beat Loop
The CDJ-850 generates an auto beat loop by pressing the 1,2,4, or 8 buttons. Creating perfect loops that allow DJ’s more time to blend in transitioning music. The CDJ-850 has 10 beat loop options providing DJ’s with a greater level of performance creativity.

Fully Assignable USB MIDI Functionality
MIDI compatible DJing software can be used via a USB connection to a PC. The CDJ-850 is also compatible with USB HID. By connecting via USB HID, the more complex operations of DJing software can be achieved without using a control disc. It can be used as a PC’s audio interface.

Rich Display For Quick And Easy Music Selection
Our GUI, which makes music file information (such as the title, artist and BPM) easy to grasp, and the rotary selector are combined for quick and easy music selection. The WAVE display smoothes out DJ play because it allows the DJ to grasp the flow and dynamics of the whole song
