Overview By GAK
The Pioneer DJ DDJ-1000 is a 4 channel professional DJ controller for Rekordbox users.
Designed specifically for the mobile DJ, allowing you to play in clubs, bars, weddings, parties or any size of the function. If you are a performing DJ, looking for something portable, robust and reliable, the DDJ-1000 is your ideal companion.
With its aluminium and acrylic-finished top panel, the DDJ-1000 appears sleek and professional while still being compact enough to transport easily between events. It fits perfectly into the Pioneer DJ DJC-1X DJ Controller Bag.
On first look, you’ll recognise Pioneer DJ’s classic Club DJ layout and the on-jog LCDs. All the onboard parameters are exactly where you need them, meaning mixing will feel comfortably familiar.

Customisable On-Jog Displays
The screens show all the vital details you need including; BPM, Key, Waveform, Hot Cue, Cue Scope, Cue Marker, Loop Points, Track Time, Selected Time, Sync, Master and Artwork.
Traditionally, all these settings would be found on your laptop, whereas the DDJ-1000 keeps your eyes firmly “pon deck”. The LCD Displays are customisable within the rekordbox settings, so you can choose what information is shown, keeping you in control of what you see.
Full-Sized Jog Wheels
The full-sized jogs enable you to mix and scratch with pinpoint accuracy. They are made with the same components as the CDJ-2000NXS2 Nexus Pro, which is a premium CDJ Multi-Player. You will also find a dedicated hardware knob named Jog Adjust, which allows you to set your preferred resistance.
As the DDJ-1000 is designed to be used with rekordbox, low latency is essential. The jog wheels are incredibly responsive and the fader has over 10,000 million movements. This means you can perform with the knowledge you will not experience any lag in your mixing.
16 RGB Rubber Pads
To keep you in control of every element of your DJ set, the DDJ-1000 comes with 16 RGB pads (8 per deck). These can be used to trigger samples, launch hot cues and many other performance features.
You can access 16 pad operations per deck by using the PAGE buttons. For example, you can quickly cycle between cues 1-8 and 9-16 to trigger each of them in a single track.
The DDJ-1000 also has Key Reset and Key Sync buttons, enabling you to get truly creative in the booth.
4-Channel Standalone Mixer
The mixer section of the DDJ-1000 has 4 channels and even works standalone. Based on the layout of the DJM-900NXS2 Nexus 4-Channel Pro DJ Mixer, the DDJ-1000 is ready for the elite level DJ.
You can use the 4x line and 2x phono inputs to connect analogue turntables, DJ Players or even your favourite hardware instruments. Each channel on the mixer will control the inputs independently, with dedicated controls for Trim, 3-Band EQ, Sound Colour FX and Cue.
The DDJ-1000 is DVS ready, meaning that you can mix with time-coded vinyl. This feature unlocks once you subscribe to the rekordbox Core plan.
Pioneer DJ has also made improvements to the crossfader, which is now a Magvel Fader. The Magvel Fader is a favourite among scratch DJs and, alongside the jog wheel's improvements, makes the DDJ-1000 a great controller for scratching.
14 Beat FX
To give you even more creative options for your live sets, Pioneer DJ has given the DDJ-1000 14 Beat FX. 10 are popular Beat FX found on the DJM Mixer range, with 4 being effects exclusive to the DDJ-1000.
The effects unique DDJ-1000 Beat FX include:
- Low-Cut Echo - An Echo with a High Pass Filter
- Enigma Jet - Flanger effect with a rise/fall.
- Mobius Saw - An ascending or descending sawtooth oscillator tone.
- Mobius Triangle - An ascending or descending triangle oscillator tone.
As the DDJ-1000 is designed for the professional DJ, you can view what effect is enabled on a dedicated screen under the Beat FX section. You can even see BPM, Beat Parameters and assigned channel.
The switch pot allows you to apply the Beat FX to not only the 4 channels but also the sampler section and 2x mic inputs. The mixer features controls for headphone volume, sample volume, and a cue for the sampler.
This means you can make sure every part of your DJ set sounds right in every room you perform in.
4 Sound Colour FX
Sound Colour FX is a master effect that is used to add texture to your performances. You can use Dub Echo, Filter, Noise and Pitch to creatively transition between tracks, build/release tension and accentuate drops. All four are controlled by the Sound Colour FX knob.
Seamlessly Connect To Any Setup
The Pioneer DJ DDJ-1000 is designed to be taken to any professional gigging environment possible. You can seamlessly connect directly to a professional PA System or Club Setup thanks to the 2 sets of XLR Stereo Master Outputs and Booth Output.
You have 4x line and 2x phono inputs, along with 2x Microphone Inputs.
The Mic inputs have their own 2-band EQ and a switch-pot that allows you to toggle between On/Off/Talkover. This means you are armed and ready to deal with any event that may come into your inbox.
To prevent the music from stopping in during a gig, the DDJ-1000 has two USB inputs, meaning you can connect to two laptops at once. This is perfect in situations where you need a backup computer or if you want to perform back-to-back with another DJ. Both Inputs can be used simultaneously or independently for both of these applications.

This item is spot on, the mag fader is brilliant for scratching and light to the touch. I'm oldschool and prefer 1210's but this unit is versatile and has so many features I've fallen in love with. Signing off Mike melia
Love this bit of kit, wasn’t sure about moving away from my turntables but the ddj 1000 is really easy to use and awesome fun. Was a plug and play transition and you can still choose the feel of the turntables or just go all in with 2-4 channels. Also mixer is awesome. Highly recommended!
My son and I love it thank you ??
