Motorized Scratch Style DJ Controller
It must be deja-vu... Pioneer DJ are back with yet another series of DJ controllers! The DDJ REV series is the latest range of dj controllers set to put the DJ world on notice and for good reason. The DDJ REV-7 takes the form of a professional DJM-S Series dj mixer and smashes it together with a PLX feeling turntable setup. That's right scratch DJ's now you can have the feel of vinyl without vinyl!
If you are a travelling DJ (which is almost everyone we know) then the DDJ REV-7 makes like a little easier, especially if you're performing scratch routines at parties. The new VINYLIZED JOG wheels are something to see and feel to believe. Giving an almost natural feel to scratching on digital - yet with the option to adjust torque and friction settings. The top of the platter almost feels like a 12" under your fingers its amazing where technology is taking the art of DJ'ing.
Add to that the MAGVEL FADER PRO which really is like butter to mix with you have one hell of a setup. You get the normal hot cues, performance pads and effects you would expect from Pioneer DJ but with a few new additions.
But let's get the elephant in the room out of the way...
The pitch control on the top of the controller like a real battle setup takes this thing to new heights. If you are real scratch DJ this is a game changer, to have the feel of a battle setup on a dj controller gives you the flexibility and control you always wanted.
This really is a game changer for the scratch DJ's out there even those djs who are looking to dive into a real setup. Now you can digitally.
1. Brand-new motorized, VINYLIZED JOG: Feel like you’re playing with records At the heart of each deck on the DDJ-REV7 is the new 7-inch motorized jog wheel, which features the same rotational stability as a 12-inch turntable and is built to feel like you’re playing with real records. The acrylic top plate is finished with a vinyl-like texture for effortless finger grip, and you can choose between low and high torque settings and use the included slip sheets – which fit neatly inside the jog wheel – to find your preferred amount of friction. Switch between a rotation speed of 331⁄3 or 45rpm whenever you like and use the Stop Time setting to adjust how long it takes for the music to end when you press pause. You can make it halt immediately or slow down gradually, as if you’ve turned off the power on an analog deck.
2. On Jog Display: Keep an eye on essential information In the center of each jog wheel, a 3.5-inch LCD keeps important information at your fingertips so there’s far less need to switch your gaze between the decks and your laptop. Thanks to an omnidirectional viewing angle, you can see what’s being displayed from any angle, and you can turn off the digital marker that indicates the playback position whenever you want. You can also mark each jog wheel with the included stickers if you prefer this method to the digital marker
See the overall waveform of the track on that deck, plus the detailed waveforms of the tracks on both decks side-by-side to help you make quick, intuitive adjustments. You’ll also have an eye on the BPM, playback speed (tempo), remaining or elapsed time, digital marker for the playback point (which you can turn off), and the number of beats in the loop when one is playing.
•Virtual Deck mode

•DJ Logo display

3. Instant Scratch: Rapidly fire samples with dedicated buttons The DDJ-REV7 has 4 original scratch samples that you can trigger by pressing the corresponding hardware buttons. Because the sounds are built in, you can fire them at any time – even if the controller isn’t connected to your laptop. If you want to use your own samples in your set, you can instantly load scratch samples from 4 banks that you’ve assigned in Serato DJ Pro with the Scratch Bank feature.
6. Plug and Play compatibility with Serato DJ Pro: Enjoy free use of the software As soon as you’ve downloaded Serato DJ Pro to your PC/Mac, you can simply connect the DDJ-REV7 via the supplied USB cable and start DJing. Enjoy tactile control of various features and effects in the software by manipulating the buttons, knobs, faders, and jog wheels on the controller. A voucher for the Serato Pitch 'n Time DJ Expansion Pack is included, which enables key shifting and key syncing with perfect audio quality.
7.Portable, sophisticated design: Take your performances anywhere The DDJ-REV7 is solid and robust, yet still lightweight enough to grab by the handles on the chassis and carry to your next gig. Contrasting matte and hairline finishing in different sections of the aluminum top plate create distinction between the deck and mixer sections, so the layout looks like a traditional 2 x turntable + mixer setup, while the On Jog Displays mimic the label in the center of a vinyl record.

Had a unit in-store last week and its solid. Amazing quality soundcard coming from the DJM S7 mixer and motorised jogs feel great. My other favourite feature is the simple yet revolutionary battle lay-out of thd players. Winner all round.
