Power and Convenience with the Pioneer DDJ-S1

The DDJ-S1 allows for easy transfer of music from the user’s laptop with a USB connection for simplicity and quick “plug-and-play” capability. For additional convenience, the controller also comes with a space saving computer dock that allows a laptop’s keyboard to slip directly under the controller, enabling its monitor to be closer to the DJ to provide fast visuals of song information while mixing. The device adopts Pioneer’s “P-LOCK Fader Cap,” designed to prevent the fader caps from slipping. The DDJ-S1 also integrates level meters in the center of the unit, and has an effect control area, enabling DJs to add Serato ITCH DJ FX to their unique mix.

Plug-and-play USB Connectivity
All the knobs and buttons on the DDJ-S1 have been pre-assigned with Serato ITCH in mind, so DJs can easily connect the controller to their laptops through a USB cable and start their show without needing to adjust any complex settings. Conveniently, the DDJ-S1 can be powered through the laptop’s USB port or, if you'd prefer, the included AC adapter.

Multiple I/O Options
The DDJ-S1 controller is equipped with a number of inputs and outputs including a balanced XLR output and 2 Microphone inputs (XLR, 1/4 inch PHONE) for connection to professional PA equipment.

Mirrored From Serato ITCH DJ Software with Advanced Pioneer Functionality
The DDJ-S1 provides solid integration with Serato ITCH DJ software due to their mirrored design, ensuring precise control and efficiency. The unit is loaded with useful and original features such as song progression status on the LED display; an alphabetic search feature for swift song selection from larger music collections; as well as a slip mode for looping, reversing, and scratching without changing the tempo of the song. The DDJ-S1 also features needle search functionality, enabling users to scan rapidly through their songs to a preferred playback point.

The DDJ-S1 is sure to satisfy beginner and expert DJs alike.
