Pioneer DDJ-S1

Professional operability for Serato DJ ITCH software.

Serato ITCH logo

The DDJ-S1 offers familiarity, innovation and pure controllerism to maximize performance with Serato ITCH software (which is included).

A Plug and Play connection via USB, a unique XLR input/output to connect directly to professional PA equipment, and a microphone talk-over feature makes the DDJ-S1 the perfect home or mobile DJ set-up.

The space for laptop keyboards under the controller eliminates set-up issues, and places the screen in the DJ’s line of sight at all times.

The controller’s layout inherits tried and tested Pioneer functionality, offering excellent operability. The controls include an alphabetic search function for quick song selection and a slip mode for momentary looping, reversing and scratching without losing the song position on return.

A dedicated effect control area allows you to add Serato ITCH DJ FX to your mixes, while the master and channel level meters allow you to monitor while adjusting the volume.

A Playing Address feature displays track progression on an LED display, while the needle search function allows DJs to quickly skip through a song to a preferred playback point.

Optimised audio circuitry in the master output area, borrowed from Pioneer pro-DJ equipment, ensures high quality sound that has beaten the competition hands down in listening tests. This, coupled with audio characteristics optimised for Serato ITCH software, ensure superior sound delivery.

All buttons are pre-assigned to the software functions, and the controller can be connected to the computer via USB cable, meaning DJs can truly “Plug and Play”. The DDJ-S1 can also be powered by the USB port of a computer.
