The Pioneer DJ DJS-1000 is a standalone performance sampler and sequencer. It lets you trigger sounds and loops using the performance pads, allowing you to layer beats and melodies while you DJ, and it also lets you record and “sample” audio coming from your DJ media player for on-the-fly remixing and producing. The controls look similar to what you’d find on the TORAIZ SP-16 sampler released last year. What makes it different to the TORAIZ SP-16, though, is its form factor. This is the same size and orientation as the CDJ-2000NXS2, which means that it’s a lot easier to drop this in any club or festival DJ booth.
ELEVATE THE STANDARD
Add the DJS-1000 to your DJ set-up to intuitively create unique sounds and phrases in advance of your set, or on the fly. Use the DJ-friendly interface to sequence and loop your samples as you wish.
With a 7-inch full-colour touch screen, 16 multicoloured step input keys, multicoloured Performance Pads, a host of inputs and outputs, Live Sampling and various other performance features, having the DJS-1000 in the booth will propel your sets to the next level.
KEY FEATURES :
Easily create a new groove by tapping the 16 large, multicolored step input keys. Thanks to the keys’ changing colours, you can keep an eye on sequence information on each track, at all times.
TACTILE PERFORMANCE PADS
Load up to 16 samples to the large rubber pads, then finger drum freely to layer sounds on-the-fly. The multicolour LEDs show what samples are in play, while Velocity Mode lets you control the sample volume with the amount of pressure you apply.
Simply touch the strip to change the pitch while using the Pitch Bend feature, or play a drum roll by hitting the Note Repeat option. Customise parameters for even more creative possibilities.
7-INCH TOUCH SCREEN
Tap the LCD display to instantly access one of three screens. The Home screen for an overview of assigned samples, the Sequence screen to view the currently playing sequence pattern and the Mixer screen to adjust each track’s volume.
Sync up your DJS-1000 to a CDJ or XDJ set-up using Pro DJ Link. Thanks to the Beat Sync function, a tempo slider and a Nudge button, you’ll adjust tempo and beat position manually, just like you would on a turntable.
Sample input sounds and instantly use them as individual tracks. Your sampled sounds are automatically synchronised with the current sequence. Play them in a loop and drop them straight into a live remix.
Add flair to your set and be inspired by the moment, using various FX to boost your tracks with ease, changing the tone of the track on the fly.
