Pioneer DJ DDJ-1000 Video Review

Watch an in-depth review of the new Pioneer DJ DDJ-1000.

Recently released, the Pioneer DJ DDJ-1000 controller is the latest flagship DJ controller to work perfectly with the Rekordbox DJ software. This version of the controller comes with full-sized mechanical style jog wheels found on the CDJs, with full-color hi-res screens in the middle to show wave-forms and other track information.

The DDJ-1000 controller also includes the on-board familiar Pioneer DJM style beat effects and four popular sound color effects, as well as dual-USB soundcards for easy DJ change-overs and tag team playback.
