Pioneer DJ has created a new DJ controller for dedicated use with their professional performance application, rekordbox dj.
The 4-channel DDJ-1000 is 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 DDJ-1000 offers the ideal solution if you 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 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 multicoloured 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 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 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 and seamlessly mix tracks.
Pricing & Availability
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 the professional DJ performance application rekordbox dj, worth €139.
