A New Monster from Pioneer – DDJ-1000SRT

A New Monster from Pioneer – DDJ-1000SRT

Pioneer just announced the Pioneer DDJ -1000SRT; a 4-Channel DJ Controller for Serato DJ software. Recall that in 2018, Pioneer released Pioneer DDJ 1000 (click the link) – for RekordBox DJ Software.

The Pioneer DDJ – 1000SRT is similar to its predecessor Pioneer DDJ-1000, however, the main difference is the predecessor is made for RekordBox DJ while this new product is for use with Serato DJ.

Key Features

  • Solidly built like the Pioneer club-standard CDJ + DJM
  • Low-latency, full-size jog wheels with On Jog Display and Jog Wheel Adjust.
  • Monstrous MAGVEL FADER for tight scratching with P Lock Fader Cap
  • 4 Sound Color FX and 14 Beat FX
  • Free voucher for Pitch ‘n Time DJ
  • Multiple inputs and outputs
  • Delicious offer of $299 voucher for Serato DJ Suite for the first 5,000 units to ship worldwide.
  • The suite includes Serato Play, Serato DVS, Serato Video, Serato Flip, and Serato Pitch ‘n Time DJ
  • As usual, 16 Performance Pads to trigger Hot Cues, Rolls, Slicer, Sampler, and Pitch Play at a touch
  • Key Shift and Key Sync function


  • To be quite frank, if you have a DJ SZ2 I do not see a real need to upgrade apart from the on screen display, more effects and a few improvements here and there.

However, this is a great unit if you are building an arsenal of top-notch DJ equipment or you need to replace your DJ equipment or you need a new controller.
