Pioneer is big in the DJ controller business and has numerous products to its credit. One thing most of those products have in common is that they are far from cheap. Most of the pioneer gear we talk about for DJs isn’t something that the entry-level person just getting into the art is likely to be able to afford. Pioneer has unveiled a new DJ controller called the DDJ-WeGo that it says is the most affordable DJ controller it has ever offered.
The controller ships with Virtual DJ Limited Edition DJ software. That software allows the user to perform with music stored on a Windows PC or a Mac. The DJ controller is available with five different body colors including white, black, red, green, and violet. The device has multicolored LED backlighting on the jog wheel and the user interface of the DJ software included can be color customize to match the DJ controller.
This controller is designed to be easy for beginners to learn and has multiple features. Features include Jog FX to bind multiple effects to the jog wheel. Pulse Control provides visual prompts with a variety of colored lights on the jog wheels with lights for mix pulse, launch pulse, and FX pulse.
The device gets power from the USB connection on a computer so it doesn’t need an external power supply. It features integrated audio ports allowing for high quality input and output of different sounds. The controller also features an integrated soundcard for extended music storage and portability. The design for the controller makes it physically small and weighs less than 4 pounds. Pioneer will launch the controller in September at an MSRP of $399.
