So, let’s get started!
Setting Up Your DDJ 400
Before you can start using your DDJ 400, you’ll need to make sure that it’s properly set up. The first thing you’ll need to do is connect the power supply to the device.
Once the power supply is connected, you’ll then need to connect the DDJ 400 to your computer. You can do this using either a USB cable or an Ethernet cable.
If you’re using a USB cable, you’ll need to connect it to a USB port on your computer. If you’re using an Ethernet cable, you’ll need to connect it to an Ethernet port on your router.
Once the DDJ 400 is properly connected to your computer, you’ll need to install the drivers for the device. These can be found on the CD that came with the device.
If you don’t have the CD, you can also download the drivers from the Numark website.
Once the drivers are installed, you’ll need to restart your computer. After your computer has restarted, you’ll be able to launch the DDJ 400 software.
Configuring Your DDJ 400
Now that you have the DDJ 400 software up and running, you’ll need to configure it to work with your specific setup.
The first thing you’ll need to do is select the audio input that you want to use. You can choose between using the built-in microphone or an external microphone.
If you’re using an external microphone, you’ll need to connect it to the MIC IN jack on the back of the DDJ 400.
If you’re using the built-in microphone, you’ll need to select it as the input in the software.
Next, you’ll need to select the audio output that you want to use. You can choose between using the built-in speakers or an external set of speakers.
If you’re using the built-in speakers, you’ll need to select them as the output in the software.
If you’re using external speakers, you’ll need to connect them to the LINE OUT jacks on the back of the DDJ 400.
Finally, you’ll need to choose the sampler rate that you want to use. The DDJ 400 supports 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 96 kHz.
If you’re not sure which sampler rate to use, you can leave it at the default setting of 44.1 kHz.
Using The DDJ 400
Now that you have the DDJ 400 configured, you’re ready to start using it.
If you want to control four decks, you’ll need to connect four turntables or CDJs to the LINE IN jacks on the back of the DDJ 400.
You can also connect a laptop to the USB port on the back of the DDJ 400. This will allow you to control the DDJ 400 with the included Serato DJ Pro software.
Once you have everything connected, you’re ready to start mixing.
If you’re using the built-in mixer, you’ll need to select the source that you want to mix from.
You can choose between the four turntables or CDJs, the Serato DJ Pro software, or the line input.
Once you’ve selected the source, you’ll need to adjust the levels for each of the channels.
You can do this by turning the knob for each channel.
Once you’ve adjusted the levels, you’re ready to start mixing.
If you’re using the Serato DJ Pro software, you’ll need to load the tracks that you want to play.
You can do this by dragging and dropping the files into the software or by using the file browser.
Once the tracks are loaded, you’re ready to start mixing.
As you can see, the DDJ 400 is a powerful piece of equipment that can give you a lot of control over your mixes.
If you take the time to learn how to use it, you’ll be able to create some truly amazing mixes.
