The gadget geek in me really wants to get my hands on one of these cool Pioneer DJ controllers. I spent my fair time scratching up my dad's records as a kid trying to scratch like RUN-DMC and never succeeded. The new line of DJ controllers is digital today with jog wheels that let you scratch with digital files.

The latest controller for DJs for Pioneer is the DDJ-S2 for Serato ITCH. Serato ITCH software is included with the machine to allow you to play music using the controller from a laptop without having to use the keyboard. The S1 has a balanced XLR input/output for connection directly to professional PA gear and a microphone for talking over tracks. Other features of the controller include various other inputs and outputs.

The thing has a huge number of controls and buttons. It features an optimized audio circuit in the master output area to allow high sound quality. The controller also has needle search function to let the DJ skip through a song to a preferred playback point. The S1 will land in the UK soon for £1099.
