Pioneer DJ has announced the launch of the DDJ-REV1 – a 2-channel controller from the brand-new DDJ-REV series of DJ controllers.

With unique features, the DDJ-REV1 is the ideal piece of kit for any beginner wanting to kickstart 2022 with a new hobby for National Hobby Month by learning the art of scratching and mixing.

Accompanied with the free Serato DJ Lite software, the controller boasts a brand-new battle-style layout that’s easy to use and ideal for learning the craft. Whether you’re mixing from hip-hop to pop or battling it out in a DJ scratch competition, the DDJ-REV1 has it all.

For the first time ever on a Pioneer DJ controller, the tempo sliders have been moved to the top of the deck and turned horizontally to imitate PLX turntables arranged in a battle configuration. As well as this, 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 users to energetically change the sound during performances. With all the controls designed in harmony, this new and improved layout makes it the ideal piece of kit for music lovers.

Perfect for beginners and hobbyists alike, the DDJ-REV1 is now available to buy for £259. You can also use the controller with the free Serato DJ Lite software, which can be downloaded here. For more information, go to
