PIONEER DDJ-1000 ON SALE WESTEND DJ!

The Pioneer DDJ-1000 is a RekordBox DJ controller with full size jog wheels which have built in full colour displays, 2 banks of 8 performance pads and a full size 4 channel mixer with traditional effects controls over RekordBox.

The DDJ1000 borrows from the flagship CDJ2000 and DJM900 NXS2 players and mixer to give a user experience with RekordBox that is as familiar as a club or bedroom setup. The main unique feature on the DDJ-1000 are the built in, high resolution displays in the jog wheels. This display gives track information such as waveform, artwork, track position, cue points, pitch, key and deck information. All the information displayed is customisable to show what the user wants.

The rest of the deck controls are fairly standard for todays controllers, 8 multi coloured performance pads with multiple modes including Keyboard Mode as well as loop controls, deck selection and track browsing.

The DDJ-1000 has a 4 channel mixer similar to the DJM900 NXS2, with input level meters and colour FX per channel as well as three band EQ. The real difference here is effects section, there are 14 beat fx in total which include 4 new ones : Enigma Jet, Mobius Saw,  Mobius Triangle and Low Cut Echo. The controls for this are typical of a Pioneer DJM mixer so using the software FX is as straight forward as it could be.

The connectivity of the mixer amazingly versatile with dual USB for connecting 2 computers at the same time, phono and line inputs for turntables or CDJs ad two mic inputs. The mixer can be used in standalone mode even without a computer connected. The DDJ-1000 is also DVS compatible with the optional RekordBox DVS expansion pack.

Combined, the controller and mixer section give unparalleled control over RekordBox DJ with the new version 5.1 release.

Features of RekordBox 5.1 include a new Automix function to mix a preselected playlist smoothly while you can still apply FX. There is also a new advance related track function to match tracks using improved search criteria.

The key features of the Pioneer DDJ-1000 are:

  • Full sized RekordBox controller
  • Large jog wheels with tension adjust
  • High resolution LCD displays with track information
  • 4 ch mixer with beat and colour FX
  • DVS ready

PAUL OAKENFOLD BECOMES FIRST EVER DJ TO PLAY AT STONEHENGE

oakiestonehenge

The historic Paul Oakenfold set at Stonehenge we reported on last month happened last night, making him the first ever DJ to play there. 

He played to just 50 people at the show, which was presented by Alon Shulman’s Universe, the brand behind the legendary Tribal Gathering festival. 

The set was recorded and will come out as an album titled ‘Live At Stonehenge’. 

To make it even more of a milestone event, Carl Cox also joined him on the decks or a special back-to-back set. 

On playing there, Oakenfold said: “I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site. The energy here is like nowhere else on earth, and this is reflected in my music. 

“Despite having performed at incredible events and locations all across the globe, sunset at Stonehenge is by far the most magical moment to have the privilege to experience.” 

Alon Shulman said: “Together, Paul and I wanted to create something completely unique. Being known for our ground-breaking performances and collaborations it is fitting that our first special moment takes place at Stonehenge”. 

The event is part of a new series by Universe called Origins, which “incorporates music, film and performance alongside incredible production.” 

All proceeds from the ‘Live At Stonehenge’ album will go to English Heritage.
