Pioneer DJ DDJ-1000
The Pioneer DDJ-1000 rekordbox DJ controller is a DJ controller that features a LCD display screen at the centre of each jog wheel and gives up important information such as length of song, BPM of the song and other information. What's really great is that this information is customisable so you can display the information you want to see, meaning you don't need to keep looking at your laptop when you're in the middle of a mix. What's also great about the Pioneer DDJ-1000 is that it's layout is the same as the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 set up so anyone who has used that setup at home or at a club will feel right at home with this controller.
The DDJ-1000 offers the ideal solution if you want to play at events and party venues other than clubs thanks to its easy portability and brand-new user interface, which is similar to the familiar multi player/DJM club-standard set-up. Its professional features include full size jog wheels inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS2 with added On Jog Display so you can keep an eye on important track information without looking at your laptop. Bring creative flair to your mixes with 14 Beat FX and use the 16 multicoloured Performance Pads (8 per deck) to trigger various features including Hot Cues, Pad FX and Keyboard Mode, which enables you to play a Hot Cue in different semitones. This allows you to improvise with sounds and create musical phrases as if you were playing on the keyboard of a synthesizer or other instrument.
The significantly updated version of rekordbox includes enhancements to the Related Tracks feature, adding more options for quickly finding tracks that are well matched with the one youre playing. And the improved rekordbox dj Plus Pack brings new additions such as Automix, which uses the softwares upgraded track analysis to automatically and seamlessly mix tracks.
Portable DJ controller with club-style layout
All the buttons and knobs on the DDJ-1000 are arranged in the same layout as those on our club-standard CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 set-up. The jog wheels are inherited directly from the CDJ-2000NXS2, so they look and feel familiar to use. As a result, using rekordbox dj with the DDJ-1000 creates the same experience as playing from USB drives with a NXS2 set-up. The DJ controller is compact and portable, too, so you can easily take it wherever you go.
Colour On Jog Display for quick reference and accurate performances
A high-definition LCD screen in the centre of each jog wheel displays information such as playback time, BPM, waveform, playback position and Hot Cue and Loop points. You can customise the information you want to see, so theres no need to look at your laptop during a mix or scratch routine.
14 Beat FX including new additions
The DDJ-1000 is loaded with all ten popular Beat FX from our DJM mixer series plus four new FX for adding creative flair and texture to your sets. You can instantly reference BPM and the name of the selected FX without looking at your laptop thanks to the dedicated Beat FX display.
Enigma Jet, Mobius Saw, Mobius Triangle FX that add sound with a feeling of infinite rising or descending
Low Cut Echo echo-derived effect that cuts low frequencies of the echo sound
Improved MAGVEL FADER
The DDJ-1000 features a new MAGVEL FADER crossfader, which inherits the design architecture of the renowned MAGVEL FADER PRO from the DJM-S9 professional battle mixer. Highly durable for more than 10 million movements, the new MAGVEL FADER enables complicated, intricate performances with a smooth feel. Plus, weve refined the software processing for jog wheel and crossfader operation to significantly reduce latency, so scratching feels more intuitive than ever.
Multiple input/outputs enable different set-ups
DJ changeovers are a breeze for rekordbox dj users thanks to the two USB ports for PC/Mac. The DDJ-1000 has four external input terminals for DJ players and analog turntables, plus two Mic inputs. You can also use the DDJ-1000 as a stand-alone DJ mixer without connecting a PC/Mac.

After selling my XDJ 1000s and DJM 700 mixer last year for wedding funds, I've been desperate to get another home setup. Coronavirus lockdown came and it's the perfect time to get some use. I would have liked to buy a similar setup to what I had but now the 1000s are silly money as opposed to the mk1s I had. So I looked at controllers for the first time. Studying lots of videos on YouTube, I opted for this controller. The 800 was my first choice, but i just wanted the full size jog wheels. I have to say I'm really glad i went for this setup. So far it's been really fun to use. Layout wise it feels like I'm on my old setup. But with the addition of sample and effects pads which are fun to get to grips with. I really think the only thing I miss is needle drop. Sometimes it's a bit more fiddly now. But apart from that I would highly recommend this controller. Even having the jog wheels adjust on it too. The displays on the jog wheels are handy for a quick glance at the waveform.. Still getting used to using the laptop as I've always been a USB stick DJ. But that only took a couple of sessions to get used to. Really happy with the purchase and the guys here got the order to me next day and also recommended some speakers which I have also been impressed with for the budget price. M audio AV 42. Perfect for this controller setup.
Absolutely delighted with this product. Such a good feel to it, great familiar pioneer layout. Stacked with quality effects. The full size jog wheels are great! Its also a good size too. Get In The Mix had it delivered the day after ordering so really fast as always!
