Clear Sound Quality:

With higher-quality, and slicker channel faders than the DJM-900NXS2, plus the third-generation MAGVEL FADER crossfader, artists can produce silky-smooth mixing and rapid, stable scratching. The DJM-A9 also adds increased spacing around the EQ knobs and bright LEDs in the channel section for an easier visual grasp on sound levels.
Sound Color FX:
With the industry-first Center Lock feature for Sound Color FX, each knob will stop turning once the knob has reached the center position.
Advanced Beat FX:
A new color display helps artists to quickly and accurately understand the status of the selected effect, and it features lighting that corresponds with the X-Pad’s horizontal arrangement, enabling more intuitive control with a simple finger slide. Artists can use the X-Pad to change the Echo and Ping Pong effects to create a unique analog tape-style sound. And, within the 14 total Beat FX, there are 3 new ones you can use to add extra variation to your performances:
- Mobius: Changes the frequency of the oscillator to constantly rise or fall in time with the beat.
- Triplet Filter: Changes the cut-off frequency cyclically for the filter according to the beat (based on 3 beats).
- Triplet Roll: Outputs the recorded sound repeatedly according to the specified beat fraction (based on 3 beats).
