Pioneer DDJ-ERGO-V to support Serato DJ Intro Software

The Pioneer DDJ-ERGO-V controller will offer native support of Serato DJ Intro software from mid December, providing intuitive operability and high quality sound to Serato users who love to play out.
 
Already popular for its sharp design and portable dimensions, the DDJ-ERGO-V places emphasis on the DJing experience, bringing simplicity to both set-up and performance without compromising on features or sound quality.
 
The DDJ-ERGO-V is the perfect partner for Serato DJ Intro; its layout mirrors the software’s graphical user interface (GUI) and all of its major features are available via dedicated controls. DJs can access Serato DJ Intro’s two decks, while hot cues, samplers and effects are positioned for instinctive operation.
 
As part of our continued efforts to make products that are loved by all DJs, the DDJ-ERGO-V comes bundled with Atomix Productions’ Virtual DJ Limited Edition and a TSI control file for Traktor software. The MIDI output already makes it compatible with most other DJ software on the market. And from December, it will offer native control of Serato DJ Intro – making it one of the most versatile controllers a DJ can buy.

The DDJ-ERGO-V controller is available at a suggested retail price of 499 euros (£429) including VAT.

KEY FEATURES

  • Layout mirrors Serato DJ Intro for intuitive operation

The DDJ-ERGO features two players and a two-channel mixer, making it the perfect partner for Serato DJ Intro. DJs can showcase their skills with dedicated buttons and knobs for all their favourite Serato DJ Intro features, including Hot Cues, samplers and effects.

  • Innovative laptop integration keeps GUI in DJ’s view at all times

Pioneer’s laptop design enables DJs to place laptop keyboards underneath the controller to use as little space as possible and keep Serato’s GUI in their line of sight at all times. The controller can be adapted to sitting or standing positions using its removable legs, making it perfect for every set up.

  • Plug-and-play through a single USB

DJs simply need to connect the DDJ-ERGO-v to a laptop running the latest version of Serato DJ Intro[i], and the software settings will be automatically updated. The controller is fully USB-powered, without compromising on audio output or lighting levels. So DJs can just arrive at a venue, plug and play.

  • Boasts features from Pioneer’s pro range for top quality sound and ease of operability

The DDJ-ERGO boasts many features that are unusual at this price point, including the 115mm Jog Wheel from the Pioneer pro-DJ range. The controller has also inherited the same layout as the popular DDJ-T1 and DDJ-S1 controllers. Plus the controller employs the same audio circuitry as Pioneer’s professional mixers for the master out terminal, ensuring a clear, powerful reproduction with no sound degradation.
