Pioneer has created a new DJ controller for dedicated use with its professional performance application, rekordbox dj. The 4-channel DDJ-1000 features a club-style interface in a portable body.
The new controller has been designed to help you 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.
The controller's professional features include full size jog wheels inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS2 with added On Jog Display so you can keep an eye on important track information without looking at your laptop. Bring creative flair to your mixes with 14 Beat FX and use the 16 multicolored Performance Pads (8 per deck) to trigger various features including Hot Cues, Pad FX and Keyboard Mode, which enables you to play a Hot Cue in different semitones. This allows you to improvise with sounds and create musical phrases as if you were playing on the keyboard of a synthesizer or other instrument.
The 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 you're playing. And the improved rekordbox dj Plus Pack brings new additions such as Automix, which uses the software's upgraded track analysis to automatically mix tracks.
The DDJ-1000 will be available from mid-February at an MAP of $1,199. It comes with a bundled licence key for Pioneer's professional DJ performance application rekordbox dj, worth $129.
All the buttons and knobs on the DDJ-1000 are arranged in the same layout as those on our club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 set-up. The jog wheels are inherited directly from the CDJ-2000NXS2, so they look and feel familiar to use.
Color On Jog Display
A high-definition LCD screen in the centre of each jog wheel displays information such as playback time, BPM, waveform, playback position and Hot Cue and Loop points. You can customise the information you want to see, so there's no need to look at your laptop during a mix or scratch routine.
14 Beat FX including new additions
The DDJ-1000 is loaded with all ten Beat FX from Pioneer's DJM mixer series plus four new FX for adding creative flair and texture to your sets. You can instantly reference BPM and the name of the selected FX without looking at your laptop thanks to the dedicated Beat FX display.
- Enigma Jet, Mobius Saw, Mobius Triangle - FX that add sound with a feeling of infinite rising or descending
- Low Cut Echo - echo-derived effect that cuts low frequencies of the echo sound
Improved MAGVEL FADER
The DDJ-1000 features a new MAGVEL FADER crossfader, which inherits the design architecture of the MAGVEL FADER PRO from the DJM-S9 professional battle mixer. Plus, Pioneer has refined the software processing for jog wheel and crossfader operation to significantly reduce latency.
Multiple input/outputs enable different set-ups
There are two USB ports for PC/Mac. The DDJ-1000 has four external input terminals for DJ players and analog turntables, plus two Mic inputs. You can also use the DDJ-1000 as a stand-alone DJ mixer without connecting a PC/Mac.
