Hope you all having a great weekend! I got invited to the reveal of the new Pioneer DDJ-Rev7 ⏮ first motorized SERATO DJ Controller in Malaysia.
The Rev is heavy duty and def a joy to any turntablist OG or new, need more time playing with it to learn about all the good stuff it delivers but from initial trial I loved it!
Overall I was def overwhelmed with the event, its been a long time I haven't been to such a community meet u can say since covid landed on earth 🌍 it was super great to see common faces from the scene and DJ friends that I haven't seen in years and meet new ones 💯
We need more of these community meetups and jam sessions for sure ✌️
The Pioneer DJ DDJ-REV7 is a complete and fantastic package for those looking for the feel of real vinyl. It’s truly impressive that Pioneer DJ brought in so many of the features found on its range of flagship battle mixers whilst keeping the package portable. The internal screens are a nice addition too, helping take away the DJs reliance on the laptop.
Serato DJ Pro is the most popular DJ software used by scratch DJs and the integration here is sublime. We know some DJs will be upset by the lack of Rekordbox support but with no support for moving platters, it’s hardly a surprise. If we are nitpicking for a fault, we would have preferred an internal power supply. Sadly, due to heat and space limitations, this wasn’t to be. Apart from this minor inconvenience, it’s hard to fault the REV7, such are its qualities!
At $2000+, this is one of the most expensive DJ controllers on the market, even exceeding the price of most stand-alone units. That said, the REV7 is uncompromising with its feature set and will leave users wanting for nothing. If budgets aren’t an issue and you’re wanting the best of the best, this is the ultimate controller for a battle DJ.
