The DDJ-WeGO is bundled with the “Virtual DJ Limited Edition” software by Atomix Productions (Windows or Mac) that offers a broad range of functions for mixing songs, including making loops and creating samples, as well as the ability to mix up to four channels for unlimited user creativity and mixes.

Built-in audio ports in the DDJ-WeGO deliver high quality sound input and output. A built-in sound card allows for expanded music storage and portability. This valuable DJ tool’s compact size weighs less than four pounds for easy transportation.

Jog FX

The Jog FX feature allows users to combine multiple effects and control them simultaneously using the Jog wheel.

Pulse Control

Pulse Control provides users with visual prompts with a variety of colored lights on the Jog platters. 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 mode triggers a red light on the Jog wheel to signify that music has been loaded successfully. And FX pulse mode allows 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.

USB Powered

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

Good starter controller The Pioneer DDJ series are mostly of plastic chassis (only exception is the DDJ-SX which is metal). I own 2 DDJ models, the T1 and the ERGO-V. I’m reviewing this product to let hobbyists and beginners know that this is a good product if you’re looking on something to start with. As a professional turntablist, it’s not a very serious product. As far as controllers go in this price range, you’ll never regret paying for what it is “cheap and cheerful” not “cheap and nasty”. The 2 deck layout is nice, the buttons are tactile and responsive unlike the Gemini CNTRL/FirstMix series or Numark Mixtrack. Like the ERGO-V, it’s powered via USB but doesn’t have “docking space” to tuck your laptop under the controller. Buyer beware, with all touch top sensitive platters I recommend buying a case or a lid for your controller unless you’re a hardware junkie who can repair it at home. I know some other reviewer stated that the faders feel plasticy but I also own a few Pioneer mixers as well,…

First impressions Pros:- Controls feel logically laid out- Jog wheels are weighted- Regardless of how you feel about Virtual DJ, the software and the hardware work great together- Lots of lights on this controller. Looks great in a dark room. Lights are also useful for monitoring your mix- Controller is bus powered, meaning it takes all of its power from your computers USB port. Amazing when you consider…- …it has a built in audio interface. Plug your speakers directly into it, as well as your headphones for beat matching- Extremely portable, probably close to best in class for this, it’s feature set, and price- Already key mapped for Traktor Pro 2, and they work wonderfully togetherCons:- Light weight and plasticky feeling cross fader*, but not as bad as really early offerings- Feels sturdy enough for the bedroom, not necessarily for crazy house parties- Cost is low IMO, but still possibly prohibitive to the…

Sound Card is Sometimey and screen freezes The Asio Sound Card that the WeGo came with keeps displaying errors. I looked it up online and it is a common occurence. Because of the sound card error the WeGo doesn’t play right away and you have to keep trying to turn it off and back off again. It got pretty scary right before a gig I had when it decided to not recognize the Asio sound card. Also, everytime you try to minimize the screen our log off of the virtual dj screen it freezes everytime. So, don’t try to minimize the screen while djing or you will be without music. Once it’s going and you don’t do anything but play music your fine.
