Pioneer DJ DDJ-XP1 Review

In September, Pioneer DJ announced the DDJ-XP1 controller, the “spiritual successor” the company’s beloved DDJ-SP1.

The DDJ-XP1 is similar to the SP1 but differs in key two ways. Firstly, it has colored pads, unlike the DDJ-SP1’s monochromatic blue pads. And secondly, and most importantly, the DDJ-XP1 only works with rekordbox dj.

As a MIDI controller, the DDJ-XP1 can connect with any software that supports MIDI mapping, such as Serato DJ. However, if you want the DDJ-SP1’s native functionality, you’ll need to use it with rekordbox dj.
