LONG BEACH, Calif.--Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division today unveiled its most affordable controller to date, the DDJ-WeGO, an ultra-compact system that enables consumers and music enthusiasts alike to mix their own music creatively. For easy setup, the DDJ-WeGO is bundled with the Virtual DJ™ Limited Edition DJ software and has the ability to perform music stored on a Windows PC or Mac.


The DDJ-WeGO is available in five body colors, white, black, red, green and violet, to match a user's individual taste. The unit also features multi-color LED backlighting for the Jog wheel, and the user interface of the included software can be color customized.

"We wanted to develop a product that anyone can simply pick up and start their quest of becoming the next big DJ," said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "Even if you have no experience in DJing, the DDJ-WeGO is designed to make it easy for you to mix songs together."

Mixing Made Easy

Through various visual and audio cues, the DDJ-WeGO DJ controller makes it easy for beginners to learn how to mix with built-in effects and features:

*Jog FX - Allows users to combine multiple effects and control them simultaneously using the Jog wheel.

*Pulse Control - Provides users with visual prompts with a variety of colored lights on the Jog platters:

*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, allowing the user to visually check that the beats are in sync. In conjunction with the music, the pulse of lights helps to improve beat matching skills.

*Launch Pulse - Triggers a red light on the Jog wheel to signify that music has been loaded successfully.

*FX Pulse - The effect being applied to the currently playing song will not only be heard, but will also be represented visually via the light movements on the Jog wheel.

The DDJ-WeGO has the ability to support other DJ software including Algoriddim "djay."1

*USB Power - The DDJ-WeGO utilizes power from USB connections found on most computers, eliminating the need for an external power supply.
