Pioneer DDJ-1000 Controller
It really wasn’t that long ago that Pioneer DJ launched a plethora of hardware from the highly anticipated XDJ-RX2 along with the forward thinking DJS-1000, it seems Pioneer DJ are still all-guns-blazing with their latest controller, the DDJ-1000.
At first glace there are immediate stand out changes from the existing range. Firstly the layout is certainly geared towards those more familiar with the club style CDJ/DJM setup with is great news for those looking to increase familiarity from their home setups to club without spending £6000 on a new Nexus set up. Secondly the new in-jog digital display gives DJs key info with less time looking at the laptop, from the images the information is looking a little busy but we’ll be getting our hands on one very soon to see what it looks like in real life.
Along with the layout there are some other key features which make this is stand out controller from the Pioneer range and we hope will set the trend for future releases:
- 4 channel DJM mixer with Pioneer DJ hardware effects section.
- 14 beat effects with 4 new Enigma Jet, Mobius Saw, Mobius Triangle and low cut echo.
- Effect selection screen.
- Improved Magvel Fader.
- 4 sound color effects (hardware).
- Multiple inputs including 2 mic.
- Full size (bullbearing) CDJ jogwheels with tension adjustment.
- In-jog display screens showing waveform, track data, album artwork, hot cue and loop points, playback time and playback position.
- 2 USB ports to connect 2 laptops at once.
