[Video] Pioneer DDJ-S1 Now With Serato DJ!

Pioneer DDJ-S1 Digital DJ Controller

The Pioneer DDJ-S1 was released back in 2011 and was designed to work with perfectly Serato Itch. We reviewed the controller and found it to be a great DJ control surface for Serato software DJ's. Now that Serato Itch software has been replaced by Serato DJ with a better layout and new features, the DDJ-S1 owners can now reap the benefits by downloading the new firmware and Free Serato DJ upgrade to get the full use out of their controller. Check out the full press release, download links, our video review, and the new Serato DJ/DDJ-S1 performance video below.

Today Pioneer DJ announced compatibility of the Serato® DJ software with
its DDJ-S1 DJ controller, replacing the bundled Serato ITCH® software.
Serato DJ improves functionality and performance of the DDJ-S1 and adds a
range of creative features and functions including Slip, Hot Cue Fader
Start, Roll and audio effects from iZotope®1.

Current owners of the DDJ-S1 can update to Serato DJ at no charge (DDJ-S1
firmware update Ver.1.10 also required)*.

Pioneer DDJ-S1 Controller:
The DDJ-S1 is designed to give DJs and music enthusiasts an easy way to
access and play their digital music files at home or on the go.

  Professional Layout –  The controller offers the same operability and
  functionality   of   Pioneer’s professional players and mixers.  The
  controller includes 115 mm diameter jog platters, master level meters
  and channel level meters for ease-of-use. The buttons and knobs of the
  DDJ-S1 are pre-programmed for Serato DJ (after firmware update) and can
  be used when connected to a PC.
  Laptop Dock Structure –  The controller is designed for slipping the
  keyboard of a laptop beneath the product to bring the monitor closer to
  the DJ for better visuals of song information.
  Track Song Progress – The DDJ-S1 allows the user to track the progress
  of a song on its easy-to-read LED display.  The built-in Needle Search
  pad enables direct access to specific parts of a music track with a
  simple touch of the pad.
  Powerful Sound –  The controller has been optimized for Serato DJ
  software for powerful and high-quality audio output.
  Additional Features
    XLR input/output (1 system each) for connection with PA equipment2
    and additional         3 inputs/4 outputs for other devices
    USB power through a PC3
    Proprietary lock mechanism called the P-LOCK Fader Cap, designed to
    prevent fader caps from slipping
    Two microphone inputs equipped with a talk-over function to lower the
    music volume when receiving voice input from the microphone
    Built-in sound card

Pioneer DDJ-S1 DJ Controller is available with a suggested retail price of
$699.
