Versatile, color- illuminated DJ controller; programmed to work with included DJ LE Software or other MIDI capable DJ software.
This ultra-compact controller gives any music enthusiast the ability to make his or her own unique music mixes. Bundled with the Virtual DJ Limited Edition software by Atomix Productions, the DDJ-ERGO controller enables you to be creative with your music collection as soon as you take the unit out of the box. The new controller also incorporates MIDI functionality, making it possible to be used with other MIDI compatible DJ software. The stylish controller is designed using contoured edges with black, white and gradient colors and a large 115mm platter for increased operability. The system also features Pulse Control that illuminates various areas of the controller to assist in the mixing process.
The integrated Pulse Control of the DDJ-ERGO provides you with visual prompts via various types of illuminations on its buttons and platters. The controller utilizes a new œPure Platter jog wheel that helps guide the user during performance with the movement of lights in accordance with the pitch, beat, and effects of the music as well as when a song is being loaded.
Mix Pulse “ The mix pulse mode shows the difference in pitch of songs currently playing through the light of the jog wheel. As the pitch of songs begin to match, the intensity of the light increases. In conjunction with the music, the pulse of lights increases beat matching skills.
Beat Pulse “ The embedded LEDs in the channel faders illuminate along with the beat of the current song playing. The illumination intensifies and weakens based on the output sound level.
Launch Pulse “ Triggers a red light to illuminate on the jog wheel to signify a press of the track load button.
FX Pulse “ The effect being applied to the currently playing song will be represented not only audibly but also via the light movements on the Jog wheel.
The DDJ-ERGO includes a copy of the œVirtual DJ Limited Edition software by Atomix Productions that offers a broad range of functions for mixing songs, such as making loops, adding effects and creating samples, as well as the ability to mix up to 4-channels and even perform video playback.*

Comments about Pioneer DDJ-ERGO DJ Controller:
This piece of equipment; DDJ ERGO is where it is at. The blue and red lights around the jog wheels are so cool when the filter is on. It makes beatmatching fun too. It has all the functions of a decent quality mixer and two cd players. very similar feel to the CDJs also by pioneer. It's super portable but it's compactness doesn't affect it's quality. Overall it is a great product.
