Pioneer DDJ-WeGO Integrated With Algoriddim’s djay

9

We first marked the announcement of Pioneer’s consumer-level, multi-color DDJ-WeGO DJ controller back in August, just prior to its release. The unit sported a customized version of Virtual DJ at launch, but today Pioneer is showing off brand new support for using the controller with Algoriddim’s ever-popular application, djay for Mac.

WeGO owners will need to download a new firmware update for their controller,  as well as a free LE copy of djay available on Algoriddim’s site. Take a look at the features that are a part of this software/hardware partnership demonstrated in the below video from Pioneer’s marketing department – not too shabby a setup for beginners:

With the DDJ-WeGO going for $290.62 on Amazon combined with a $19.99 copy of djay, it’s one of the slickest low cost complete DJ systems we’ve seen yet. Additionally, there’s no word yet on support for the controller with the iOS versions of djay, but we suspect it’s just a matter of time at this point.

Interested in seeing us do an in-depth review of this controller? Let us know in the comments below. 

  • Could this be mapped with traktor ?
    I am interrested in a review.

  • is there any good reason you should buy this over a MX Pro or one of those low costing Vestaxes? If it works with iPad then it may be worth it, but theres still the iDJ Pro which is meant for the iPad.

    The first time I saw one of these was in a music shop here in Japan, and i got my hands on it for a few minutes. it actually felt really good. much better than some of the other budget controllers i’ve played with.

    i didn’t know the price at the time, and actually expected it to be a little more expensive.

    Now that it’s supporting DJAY as well (and if they support for ios too) i think it is probably the best option for people looking at this price bracket, and blows away the Vestax spin series in terms of build quality.

    Please do a review if possible! 🙂

    algoriddim djay does work on an iPad so this is probably the most compatible feature filled dj setup that will have constant development with low overhead

    Lot’s of Pioneer Product this moment… mmm… I try but Pioneer and serato sounds a little beat like Vador and Death star… tin tin tin, ta ta ta… 🙂

    That’s really cool! It would be awesome for travelling or lounge room mixing

  • If this works with an iPad then it’s a game changer- the price is pretty reasonable for a Pioneer product.

      Just map it to DJ Player in 30 minutes, and you have your new game! 🙂
