Essential Features of the New DDJ-1000 Controller
Gives you the familiarity of a club-style layout
The DDJ-1000 shares the same layout as the DJM-900NXS2 and the CDJ-2000NXS2. All its knobs and buttons are set up in a way that is familiar to you. The jog wheels are exactly the same as those of the CDJ-2000NXS2.
When you use the rekordbox dj with the new compact and portable DJ controller, you will feel the ease and familiarity of using the NXS2 set-up.
Allows accurate performances and ready reference with the OnJog Display
You have easy access to data like playback position, waveform, BPM, playback time, and Loop and Hot Cue points. The data is displayed on an HD LCD screen located in the middle of each jog wheel. When you do a scratch or mix routine, you don’t have to check your laptop for the said information. You can even customize the data you want to be on display.

The dedicated FX display allows you to immediately reference the name of the FX you opt for and the BPM even without having to look at your laptop.
The new effects include the Mobius Triangle, Mobius Saw, and the Engima Jet – all designed to give sound a sense of descending and infinite rising. You also get the Low Cut Echo for the low frequency echo-derived effect.

Key Features of Rekordbox 5.1
1. Automix for smooth and natural automatic mixing
Drop tracks into an Automix playlist and rekordbox dj will mix them accurately and smoothly. Phrases in a track are now detected by the newly developed phrase analysis algorithm in the track analysis section of rekordbox’s KORETECH engine. In addition to the phrase information, Automix uses track information such as beat position, BPM and key to make mixes sound natural. You can scratch, apply FX and change the order of tracks during Automix.
2. Advanced Related Tracks feature brings more detailed search criteria
The popular Related Tracks feature – which displays tracks that are well matched with the one you’re currently playing – has been significantly upgraded. You can easily find even more relevant tracks using increased search criteria such as artists, comments and file formats, and you can save your custom criteria and call it up at any time. This feature is highly useful for creating unique sets from tracks you might not have otherwise thought to mix together.
