Pioneer DJ Controllers: ERGO, WeGo, AERO

Lifestyle
Wednesday, 19th September, 2012

I love music and liked to DJ, and had a setup which was pretty sweet a couple of years ago; 2x CDJ1000’s and a DJM800 mixer, but I just never had the time to DJ. I think everyone who likes music, especially electronic or hip hop music has wanted to DJ at some point, since they both have their own DJ scenes. If you just want to have some fun, and have a lot of music on your laptop, Pioneer has a few different controllers for you to buy, each one at a different price point and having different features.

The newest is the DDJ-WeGo which plugs into your laptop and you are away. Very simple, very easy to use and setup, plug in and go, you don’t even need speakers, play straight from the laptop or laptop speakers. The best thing about this little machine is that it only costs Β£249 which is a good price if you just fancy messing around and having fun.

Next up is a bit more pro, unless you are a pro then you probably think it’s for kids πŸ˜€ The DDJ-ERGO has been around for a little bit now, and I do fancy one. It’s more advanced than the WeGo and you can plug big speakers into it, and is said to perform well with good sound quality. This costs a little more, at Β£379, still a good deal to DJ for under Β£400.

Lastly is the XDJ-AERO which I have just been reading about. It sounds like an amazing gadget and DJ tool, you can load music wirelessly from devices such as laptops, tablets, PCs and even smartphones! That means someone can be in the club and send you their song and you can play it out live! πŸ˜€ It really looks to be a great all in one machine. This is more expensive, at Β£869, which is still cheaper than 2x midrange/high end Pioneer CDJs.

I may have to get one to play around with πŸ™‚
