Artists are invited to get hands-on with an interface emulating two PLX turntables and a DJM-S series mixer – a
common pro battle DJ setup.
The DDJ-REV1 provides artists with space to perform mixing and scratching techniques with a new
control arrangement. Tempo sliders are longer than sliders on the DDJ-SB3—measuring at 60mm—
giving artists finer control. Sliders run horizontally above the decks while the Performance Pads are in the
mixer section allowing artists to intuitively combine effects, trigger samples, and scratch tracks.
Jog wheels on the DDJ-REV1 are the same size as jogwheels on the DDJ-SR2—a popular Pioneer DJ
Artists can dynamically add texture to their music with Lever FX in the mixer section, by pulling down the
levers and holding them to apply effects from Serato DJ Lite in short bursts. Alternatively, artists can also
push the levers up, to lock on effects and free their hands for scratching or track browsing.
Tracking Scratch: Get a Helping Hand with Scratching
The DDJ-REV1 helps artists have fun scratching without doing it all for them. Artists will still need to hone their
skills, but the Tracking Scratch feature will silently take the music back to the cue point the moment they move the
jog wheel backward or lift their hand away—in turn, saving them from needing to close the fader and find the right
track place to start the scratch again. All artists need to do is select the Tracking Scratch Pad mode, press a
Performance Pad to choose their desired Scratch Crossfader Cuts pattern and move the jog wheel.
Mixed Microphone Audio: Easily Add Voice While Streaming
For the first time in a Pioneer DJ controller at this level, the output of the master audio integrates with the
microphone sound—removing the need for external equipment such as a soundcard or separate mixer. All
sounds are sent to Serato DJ Lite so you can stream from there.
Serato DJ Lite Integration: Enjoy Full Use of the Free Software
After downloading Serato DJ Lite to their PC/Mac for free, artists connect the DDJ-REV1 via the supplied USB
cable and begin DJing. Artists enjoy tactile control of various features and effects in the software by manipulating
the controller’s buttons, knobs, faders and jog wheels.
With Scratch Bank pad mode, artists instantly load scratch samples from four banks that they’ve assigned in
Serato DJ Lite or Pro by simply tapping the dedicated Scratch Bank button. Artists can load from a specific start
point too – handy if they want to use this feature to drop in full tracks during a routine.
