Want to start DJing? Look for the Pioneer DJ's DDJ-WeGO4 - a new lightweight controller for beginner DJs to step into the world of mixing, using music from your iTunes library stored on your iPad or control tracks stored on your laptop. The DDJ-WeGO4 features all the tactile controls needed to learn to mix, including play/cue buttons, EQ knobs, tempo sliders, a crossfader and jog wheels for scratching. The sampler, Hot Cues and Pad FX are all inherited from professional hardware. Setting up the DDJ-WeGO4 is easy - just plug in the supplied USB cable or a Lightning cable and it's ready to use - and an iPad fits into the slot at the top of the controller to give DJs the perfect viewing angle.
A license key for Pioneer DJ's professional DJ performance application for Mac/PC, rekordbox dj ($129.00 value), comes bundled with the DDJ-WeGO4, so users can plug it into a laptop and start DJing straight out of the box. The DDJ-WeGO4 is compatible with the djay iOS and Android app.
The controller is also compatible with WeDJ, Pioneer DJ's new DJ performance app for iPad (available at an introductory price of $2.99 in the App Store), which lets users easily mix tracks from their iTunes library. WeDJ's colorful animated interface offers users the ability to control the tracks in their iTunes playlists and add a variety of features and FX to get creative with their sets. By connecting an iPad into speakers, users can DJ at parties, or use headphones for practicing on the go.
The WeDJ app looks like a two-channel hardware set-up with waveforms, jog wheels, play/cue buttons, tempo sliders and a crossfader. Use the Sync button to get tracks perfectly in time and Auto Gain to automatically set the volume to the right level, leaving you free to use the performance features including Hot Cues, loops, Pad FX and Combo FX to make your mix unique. There?s also an Automix feature, which seamlessly mixes in the next track before the end of the track that?s playing.
The DDJ-WeGO4 will be available in the U.S. and Canada from September 2016, with a retail price of $299.00. WeDJ is available in the App Store at an introductory price of $2.99 until September 30, 2016, and at the regular price of $4.99 from October 1, 2016.
