AlphaTheta Corporation has introduced two additions to its new line of Pioneer DJ controllers.

The DDJ-REV1 is a two-channel unit that comes equipped with Serato DJ Lite software and boasts a new battle-style layout for artists looking to begin scratch and open-format DJing. Enabling artists to maximize the full potential of Serato DJ Pro performance software, the DDJ-REV7 two-channel unit features a brand-new design including large, vinylized, motorized jog wheels with On Jog Display to create a tactile connection between artists and their music.

The DDJ-REV series is a fresh range of DJ controllers with layouts that emulate a professional DJM-S mixer + PLX turntable setup, including specialized features for open-format and scratch DJs.

For the first time ever on a Pioneer DJ controller, the tempo sliders have been moved to the top of the deck sections and turned horizontally to emulate PLX turntables arranged in a battle configuration. The Performance Pads have been placed in the mixer section along with Lever FX paddles, exactly where they’re found on DJM-S series mixers, enabling you to energetically change the sound during performances.

The DDJ-REV1 will be available late January, at a MAP of $259 USD, while the DDJ-REV7 is expected in mid February, priced $1,899 USD ex. VAT. Both units included 3 months of TIDAL HiFi for free during a limited time launch offer.
