Mojaxx Reviews Pioneer DJ’s DDJ-REV1 and DDJ-REV7

Mojaxx reviews Pioneer DJ’s new controllers, the DDJ-REV1 and DDJ-REV7 on the first episode of his new Beatsource Tech series. The DDJ-REV1 is an entry-level, two-channel controller for Serato DJ Lite, and the DDJ-REV7 is a two-channel controller for Serato DJ Pro with motorized platters that provides the mixer and turntable experience in one unit.

Both are part of the new DDJ-REV series that takes inspiration for its layout from a professional DJM-S mixer plus turntable setup and adds innovative features for open format DJs.

“The ‘REV’ series of controllers are a new and exciting chapter for Serato and Pioneer DJ,” says Serato Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren. “Following up on the DDJ-SB3 was never going to be easy, with a brand new layout and innovative features we’re confident beginners are going to love learning on DDJ-REV1. For our professional DJs, the DDJ-REV7 is one of the most powerful controllers we’ve ever worked on and it’s exciting to have motorized jog wheels make their debut on a Pioneer DJ controller.”
