Just yesterday Denon DJ announced that they were producing a new all-in-one DJ controller aimed at the entry-level or beginner DJ market who may not want to spend an arm and a leg on this new-found hobby. Pioneer DJ has also jumped on the entry-level DJ controller bandwagon with their own announcement earlier today of the all-new DDJ-WeGO. This new all-in-one Digital DJ Controller is clearly aimed at beginners with five-color combinations to choose from, a limited number of controls, and a low price.

The Pioneer DDJ-WeGO will be available in five different color combinations including red, green, violet, black, and white. The DDJ-WeGO will come bundled with Virtual DJ LE 7, but people who purchase the DDJ-WeGO early on, can still get the free upgrade to Virtual DJ LE 8 when it's finally released. Even though this is a tiny controller, there are buttons for the layering of Decks C and Deck D through the push of a button which will turn this into a four-deck controller. At first glance, the controller looks to have the same non-push-top style jog wheels as the new XDJ-AERO that will be released in October. There's a few effects knobs on each side, four Hot Cue buttons located under the jog wheels with the Play/Pause and Cue buttons along side them. Above the jog wheels are three FX buttons and other controls that are situated in a round-ish circular design around the jog wheel. This is something pretty new and fresh and we'll be sure to let you know how these buttons play out in actual use.

The Pioneer DDJ-WeGO is USB powered, has a quarter-inch Microphone input, and an RCA output. Absent from this controller is a set of gain knobs on top of the EQ section, but I'm sure most DJ's in this realm will be satisfied with the autogain feature in the VDJ software. Also missing from the design is a true manual IN and OUT loop control, but there is an autoloop button for easy one-touch loop assignment. Again, this is aimed at the beginner who will like to have lots of functions automated until they get the hang of everything. The DDJ-WeGo will probably come in at around $399 when it's released to the public sometime in October. We are already on the list for review units and we'll be sure to bring you an in-depth HD-Video review ASAP! Check out the press release and links below for more information and Stay Tuned!

Pioneer DJ is steadily rolling out brand new products that work in perfect harmony with the new Serato DJ Software. Last week they unveiled the new Pioneer DJM-900SRT and the DDJ-SP1 that will work with the new Serato DJ 1.5.0 update and today they announced the new DDJ-SR which is a 2-channel Digital DJ controller that also controls the Serato DJ software. The Pioneer DDJ-SR is essentially a trimmed down two-deck version of the DDJ-SX which controls four decks of Serato DJ. The new DDJ-SR is more compact than the DDJ-SX and adds a new PAD PLUS button that gives the 16-performance pads even more function.
