Pioneer DDJ-T1 & S1 DJ Controllers at $100 off: $600 shipped

Along with Numark, Pioneer has been a staple in the DJ community for many years and its DDJ line of DJ controllers is no exception. The weapon of choice for many DJs, the Pioneer DDJ S1 and T1 are some of the most powerful DJ rigs available. Amazon is currently offering both decks at $100 off, making this a great time to get your hands on a world class DJ rig at less than half the price at launch date.

Both models came in at around $1200 when they were released and slowly crept down to the $700 price point. Now you can grab both the T1 and S1 for $600, bringing you a savings of $600 off the regular listing, $100 off what Pioneer is charging and the current lowest price we can find.

The main difference between the T1 and the S1 is the Serato scratch software support, to put it simply, if you’re into scratching and that style of music the S1 is the model for you. Another glaring difference is that the S1 is a two channel mixer whereas the T1 is a 4 channel mixer, making it more capable of elaborate live multi-track mixing. Both models support Native Instrument’s industry standard DJ software Traktor.

Pioneer DDJ-T1 DJ Controller, 4 channels: $600 (Reg. $700)

The controller layout and TRAKTOR software interface are identical, ensuring ease-of-use and precise control. The DDJ-T1 is modeled after the proven design of the professional Pioneer DJ player and mixer and integrates 115mm jog dials, accurate search functionality to quickly find playback points, a load button for song data and a master synch button for beat matching across four channels.

Pioneer DDJ-S1 DJ Controller w/ Serato support, 2 channels: $600 (Reg. $700)

All buttons and knobs have been pre-programmed for Serato DJ (after firmware update), so users can quickly connect the controller to their laptops with the use of a USB cable, enabling them to start their performances without having to adjust any complicated settings.  Additionally, the DDJ-S1 can be powered through the laptop’s USB port
