The new Pioneer DJM-900SRT Serato DJ Mixer has almost all of the cool features of the DJM-900nexus but with an internal Serato DJ Soundcard that is capable of Digital Vinyl Playback of up to four CD or vinyl timecode decks within the full new Serato DJ software now with DVS control. The Pioneer DDJ-SP1 is designed to be used as a "sub-controller" that works with a primary Serato DJ controller or Mixer+DVS setup to offer the advanced features found on the Pioneer DDJ-SX controller to all Serato users. The DDJ-SP1 is the perfect companion controller for the DJM-900SRT mixer and we've got both in the lab for the full unboxing & review treatment.
The Pioneer DJM-T1 is a heavy-duty Traktor Scratch Certified two-channel professional-grade DJ mixer with built-in Traktor MIDI controls for many of the advanced DJ software features such as loop, samples, hot cues, effects and much more. I've decided to purchase the DJM-T1 for my personal collection and now we're ready to customize the looks to make it fit in with the rest of our setup. With the help of our friends over at 12inchskinz.com we were able to come up with a cool silver and blue design with the DJbooth.net Logo squarely in the middle.

Last month on March 6th, Legendary hip-hop DJ Jazzy Jeff hosted a new Serato In-Store Experience Section unveiling at the Guitar Center store in Hollywood, California. This celebration was to open the new Serato Experience Section in the store as well as to show big-time DJ's from the LA area doing their thing on the decks. Check out the video of the full DJ Jazzy Jeff set from the event inside.
Native Instruments is offering a $50 discount on the new Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and the S4 MK2 from now until the end of the month (April 30th) or until supplies last. This brings the price of the new S2 down to $450 and the price of a new S4 down to only $700. The Interesting part about all of this to me is the fact that they mention the deal is good until "supplies last" which makes me speculate as to whether or not NI has a new controller coming soon.
