Phrase Sync worlds first feature on a controller for easy, natural switches between tracks:
Phrase analysis algorithms will analyze the composition of your tracks and detect phrases.

Compact, lightweight body for DJing anytime, anywhere:
Take the DDJ-200 wherever you want, thanks to its lightweight and slim body. There's no need to carry speakers because you can play sound from the built-in speaker of your smartphone, tablet, or PC/Mac. And the DJ controller can be powered via a power bank so you don't even need to stay close to an outlet.
Split output for DJ performances:
Use split cables to separate the audio output of your smartphone, tablet, or PC/Mac into master and monitor outputs. This enables you to check audio via your headphones, e.g., cueing the next track, while the crowd hears the master sound playing through the speakers.
