The unit’s controls are now more responsive, featuring a new gain structure, improved EQ, and fader curves. Users can now combine both Beat FX and external FX thanks to an independent Send/Return system, and the Sound Colour FX section allows for more nuanced manipulation via a parameter knob. On the routing side, the DJM-900NXS is equipped with four phono inputs, DVS support, and two USB ports.
