If you want to get started DJing with Serato, then the Denon DJ MC4000 all-in-one DJ controller is an excellent choice. This 2-deck controller offers all the essentials Sweetwater DJs look for in a grab-and-go rig. We're talking about touch-activated jog wheels, smooth faders, and great-feeling pads that give the MC4000 a professional feel, while easy access to cueing, looping, and sampling make this one of the most fun controllers anywhere near its price point. And if you love to travel light, then all you need is your iPad, a Spotify Premium account, and Algoriddim djay Pro, and you're all set.
Cool 2-deck layout makes performance fun
DJing should be a blast, but a poorly laid out controller can make the job stressful. That's why DJs at Sweetwater instantly took to the Denon DJ MC4000. Its layout is a slight departure from the average 2-deck DJ controller, splitting the hot cue and looping sections and providing more surface-level controls than most other entry-level models. With your hot cues down by each deck section's transport controls, the looping buttons up by the effects, and the sample pads right in the middle of the EQ section, not only is it hard to get lost, but everything just feels like it's in the right place.
Command your mix with tactile controls
Getting your hands on the MC4000 is positively inspiring. This is where Denon's decades of expertise and extensive history of producing superior DJ controllers comes in. They didn't reinvent the wheel, especially not the jog wheel. These touch-activated platters feel perfect under your fingertips, and if you want to scratch, then the MC4000 will not disappoint. Another thing you'll notice is how playable the hot cue and sample pads are. These transform the MC4000 from a DJ controller to an electronic-music instrument. Even the solid steel chassis gives the MC4000 a special built-to-last-the-apocalypse vibe that puts your mind at ease when you pack up for your next gig.

Integrated 24-bit sound card and DSP
Leave your audio interface at home — the MC4000 has all the audio I/O you need. Its 24-bit sound card includes a pair of low-distortion microphone inputs, each with its own 2-band shelving EQ, while a ducking feature automatically balances your mix and vocals, and you never need to touch the faders. A full complement of I/O options ranges from traditional RCA jacks to XLR main outputs and balanced TRS booth outs. Mics connect via XLR or 1/4" plugs, and you get both 1/4" and 1/8" stereo headphone outputs. The bottom line is that the Denon MC4000 sounds fantastic, so whether you're DJing a wedding, tearing it up at the club, or remixing in the studio, you (and your audience) are going to love the results you get.
