Pioneer DJ has announced new additions to its controller family, the DDJ-REV7 and DDJ-REV1, with features specifically designed for Serato users.
Aimed at professionals and those new to spinning, the two-channel controllers are designed to imitate the setup of a professional DJM-S mixer and PLX turntable. Both also come equipped with bigger jog wheels for a more accurate scratching.
The DDJ-REV7 offers a full suite of capabilities for Serato DJ Pro users. It’s packed with motorised jog wheels simulating vinyl response and a 3.5-inch LCD On Jog Display for information such as waveforms, Hot Cues and playback positions.
The DDJ-REV7 also arrives with Magvel Fader Pro crossfader, as well as original scratch samples and 22 built-in Beat FX.
Meanwhile, the DDJ-REV1 is an entry-level controller for Serato DJ Lite users. It boasts a new feature called Tracking Scratch, which lets users automatically take the track to its cue point by either moving the jog wheel backward to forward or lifting the hand away.
There’s also Paddle FX levers for adding texture to the music and Performance Pads with modes including Scratch Bank that lets DJs auto-load samples or tracks.

The DDJ-REV7 and DDJ-REV1 will be available in late January at £1,829 / $1899 and £259 / $259, respectively.
