The DDJ-S1 allows for easy transfer of music from the user’s laptop using 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 is compatible with Serato DJ software (Ver 1.2.0) and can be downloaded at no cost at http://www.serato.com/dj/downloads.
Key Features Include:
- Plug-and-play USB Connectivity – All buttons and knobs have been pre-programmed for Serato DJ (after firmware update), so users can quickly connect the controller to their laptops with the use of a USB cable, enabling them to start their performances without having to adjust any complicated settings. Additionally, the DDJ-S1 can be powered through the laptop’s USB port2.
