Pioneer DJ has linked up with influential fashion designer Virgil Abloh and his Off-White brand on the DDJ-1000-OW controller. The co-branded unit is compatible with rekordbox and Virtual DJ 2021 software and features an exclusive colorway and subtle design details throughout.

The controller is being released alongside the “Pioneer DJ c/o Off-White™” capsule collection, which includes tees, hoodies, a jacket, and accessories inspired by the concept of “SOUND ENGINEERING.”

“As with the skeleton CDJ and DJM I designed with Pioneer DJ, I wanted to take this opportunity to bring together technology and human interaction,” Virgil Abloh states in Pioneer DJ’s press release. “And this time we took it one step further with ‘SOUND ENGINEERING’ bringing together this medium that unites so many of us with a fashion element. Both music and fashion, in my opinion, are these intense forces that have the unique power to bring people together while letting you make your own statement all at the same time.”

The DDJ-1000-OW controller will be available worldwide, in limited quantities, starting mid-July at a suggested retail price of $1799. The clothing collection will be available at Off-White’s website, Farfetch.com, and select Off-White™ stores worldwide.

Pioneer DJ has announced their latest two-channel battle mixer, the DJM-S7. The unit is geared toward open-format DJs, allowing a range of customization options to tailor the mixer to each individual’s performance style. It also comes in at a more affordable price point than Pioneer DJ’s other two-channel mixers.

The DJM-S7 has the 16 large performance pads (eight per channel) and Magvel fader their battle mixers are known for. Each channel’s pad modes are independent, meaning, for example, deck one’s pads can be set to trigger hot cues while deck two is set to the sample bank.

The effects section includes all 22 Beat FX from the DJM-S11, and the mixer also has Bluetooth connectivity for additional audio routing. Other features borrowed from the DJM-S11 (when used with Serato DJ Pro) are Scratch Bank, Gate Cue, and the aforementioned Combo Pad mode.

Loop MIDI, a new feature exclusive to the DJM-S7, allows DJs to use the effect levers to send MIDI messages to Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox, as a way to control performance features rhythmically.

Pioneer DJ’s DJM-S7 is available now at a suggested retail price of $1399 USD. Watch Mojaxx’s first look below.

Mojaxx Reviews Pioneer DJ’s DJM-V10-LF

Pioneer DJ DJM-V10-LF

In this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes an in-depth look at Pioneer DJ‘s new DJM-V10-LF six-channel mixer, which is a variant of the original DJM-V10 model.

The DJM-V10-LF’s crossfader has been removed in exchange for longer channel faders with optimized curves and a new custom-designed curve preset to ensure smooth and accurate mixes. This allows the new 60 mm shaft slide faders on the DJM-V10-LF to extend further down the top plate than the 45 mm faders on the original mixer. This development enables users to control the audio source volume from each channel more precisely.
