Pioneer unveils new mixer and controller for Serato users
There’s a reason why Pioneer has emerged as the face of the DJ tech industry. The company has never been content to rest on its laurels, and its latest line of products illustrate exactly that.
Since its 2011 launch, the DJM-900nexus has reigned as the industry standard DJ mixer. One of the few legitimate complaints about the hardware has been its lack of direct connectivity for Serato users. Enter the DJM-900SRT. The brand new iteration sports an internal Serato sound card for native control of the popular DJ software via USB.
But that’s not at all. Pioneer has also unveiled the Digital DJ-SP1, an add-on controller designed to give Serato users intuitive ease of access to the software’s features. Providing velocity sensitive pad and fader controls for Serato’s four DJ decks, six sample decks, eight Hot Cues and more than 30 Izotope effects, the DJ-SP1 is a true game-changer for Serato users who prefer to use Pioneer products.
Both products will be available starting October 2013. The DJM-900SRT will carry a ticket price of approximately $2,920 US, while the DJ-SP1 will cost approximately $150 US.
