New DJ Controller from Pioneer

New DJ Controller from Pioneer

Pioneer has created a new DJ controller for dedicated use with its professional performance application, rekordbox dj. The four channel DDJ-1000 is designed to help users get the most from the new features coming to rekordbox dj following the release of the latest version of rekordbox (ver 5.1). The upgraded software will be available to download on 18th January 2018.

Pioneer says The DDJ-1000 offers the ideal solution if users want to play at events and party venues other than clubs thanks to its easy portability and brand-new user interface, which is similar to the familiar multi player/DJM club-standard set-up. Its features include full size jog wheels inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS2 with added On Jog Display so the DJ can keep an eye on important track information without looking at a laptop.

The significantly updated version of rekordbox includes enhancements to the Related Tracks feature, adding more options for quickly finding tracks that are well matched with the one the user is playing. The improved rekordbox dj Plus Pack brings new additions such as Automix, which uses the software’s upgraded track analysis to automatically and seamlessly mix tracks.

The DDJ-1000 will be available from mid-January at an SRP of €1,199 including VAT. It comes with a bundled licence key for our professional DJ performance application rekordbox dj, worth €139. No UK prices were quoted by Pioneer.
