Pioneer release the DDJ-1000SRT – A club-style 4-channel performance DJ controller for dedicated use with Serato DJ Pro

If you’ve been eagerly anticipating a Serato-compatible version of our pro-grade DDJ-1000 controller, good news: The wait is over.

The 4-channel DDJ-1000SRT inherits the layout of the DDJ-1000, which feels familiar to a CDJ+DJM club-standard setup. All the same professional features are there too, including low-latency, full-size jog wheels from the CDJ-2000NXS2 and the slick MAGVEL FADER for tight scratching.

Keep your eye on important track information thanks to colour On Jog Display. Build excitement on the dancefloor with 4 Sound Color FX and 14 Beat FX and use 16 multicoloured Performance Pads (8 per deck) to trigger various features including Hot Cues, Slicer, and Pitch Play. The portable DDJ-1000SRT also offers multiple inputs and outputs, enabling you to connect external equipment and assemble different setups.

The DDJ-1000SRT will be available from August at an SRP of €1,499 including VAT. Simply plug it into a laptop running Serato DJ Pro to unlock the software – you don’t need a license key or subscription – and use the included Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Pack to enable advanced key-related features. The controller is Serato DVS-ready (Expansion Pack available separately).
