DDJ-REV1 DJ controller

Custom-designed Layout Makes it Easy to Have Fun and Play Like Pro Battle DJs

Pioneer DJ announces the release of the DDJ-REV1 in a new series of DJ controllers from its Pioneer DJ brand. This 2-channel unit matches perfectly with the free Serato DJ Lite software, boasting a brand-new battle-style layout that’s easy to use and perfect for playing like a pro DJ.

The DDJ-REV DJ Controller Series is an ideal solution for open-format and scratch DJs. For the first time ever on a Pioneer DJ controller, the tempo sliders sit horizontally on the top of the deck sections to mirror PLX turntables in a battle configuration, while the Performance Pads and Lever FX paddles sit in the mixer section to parallel the DJM-S Series mixer design.

You’ll find plenty of room to try out mixing techniques on this spacious layout, and scratching feels great on the jog wheels which are noticeably bigger than the jogs on previous controllers at this level. If you’re thinking about getting into battle mixing and scratching – and streaming your sets too – the DDJ-REV1 is the perfect piece of kit to start your journey with.

Right away, you can have fun and easily scratch your music with the help of Tracking Scratch. This handy feature returns the track to the cue point automatically when you move the jog wheel backward or take your hand away, so you don’t need to use the crossfader or worry about winding the jog back to the start point of your scratch. Simply choose the Scratch Crossfader Cuts pattern you want to use by pressing the relevant Performance Pad and push the jog forward to scratch.

You can also use the Performance Pads on the controller to instantly trigger your favorite samples or tracks that you’ve loaded to the Scratch Bank in Serato DJ Lite – previously only available in Serato DJ Pro – and, with Deck 3/4 Control, you can play sounds from all 4 decks in the software. The DDJ-REV7 also has 22 Beat FX including 3 brand-new ones and five Sound Color FX for dramatic and texturized performances.

To use the DDJ-REV1 with Serato DJ Lite, download the latest version of the software for free.
