The layout of the controls on the DDJ-FLX6-GT is the same as its predecessor, echoing club-standard CDJ + DJM setup, so you can perform intuitively. However, a new aesthetic design brings a sophisticated graphite color to the body, plus a smoke-gray shade to the jog wheels, which also feature a spun-grain texture on top for improved grip.
Choose from three DJ software options to use the DDJ-FLX6-GT with. Virtual DJ is compatible with the updated unit (license available separately), which also offers free use of the rekordbox Core plan and Serato DJ Pro. The DJ controller also comes with license keys for the Serato FX Pack and Pitch 'n Time DJ Expansion Packs.
Full-Size Jog Wheels
Pitch bending and scratching feel natural on the DDJ-FLX6-GT, thanks to the large jog wheels, which are the same size as those on the flagship CDJ-3000 multi player. Each one features an On Jog Display, too, so you can keep an eye on the playhead position. The new rubberized finish on the outer ring gives you a much better feeling—especially when using pitch bend.
Add drama to your sets and easily mix different styles of music with this innovative feature. No matter what the BPM or key of the next track is, you can create an exciting transition whenever you want. Simply press the knob to engage the effect, then turn it as fast or as slowly as you like to start building up the tension in the music. Depending on the effect pattern you’ve chosen, the pitch of the track might start to climb while a snare drum sample is triggered at shorter intervals, until you’re ready to drop your next song. When you press the knob again, the effect is released—and if you’ve chosen one in the settings—another sample fires off to end the track, so you can simply hit play on the other deck to introduce the next song or genre of music.
There are eight Merge FX pattern presets to choose from (four if you use Virtual DJ or Serato DJ Pro) and you can use your own samples. If you’re DJing with rekordbox, you’ll find everything is customizable. Choose from 41 types of effects within the four categories that make up a Merge FX (Build FX, Build Sample, Release FX and Drop Sample) and combine them to create more than 9,000 different patterns. You can save eight of your own patterns and use the FX Select button on the unit to call them up whenever you want to perform a unique mix.
Turn on Jog Cutter and, when you move the jog wheel, a professional scratch effect will be applied to the last Hot Cue or playback position you used on that deck. There are 10 different scratch patterns and you can switch from one to another by simply moving the playhead position, shown on the jog wheel’s display, to point toward the angle for the scratch you want to use. When you lift your hand away, the track will continue to play as normal from the Hot Cue position.
The Sample Scratch pad mode in rekordbox enables you to choose sounds you’ve assigned to the sampler and load them onto the decks. So, when you want to create a live remix of a track, or simply add some texture to the music, you can scratch with your favorite sounds. If you’re using Serato DJ Pro or Virtual DJ, you can use Scratch Bank to trigger samples by hitting the Performance Pads.
With a built-in sound card, all you need to do is connect the DDJ-FLX6-GT via USB cable to a laptop that’s running a compatible software—and you can start DJing right away.
