Pioneer Unveils DDJ-T1 – Traktor DJ Controller
Pioneer has announced the DDJ-T1, a dedicated Traktor Pro DJ controller. The DDJ-T1 controller offers DJs of all levels the same operability and functionality of a professional player and mixer setup along with excellent audio quality.
The DDJ-T1 easily connects with a user’s laptop via USB for quick “plug-and-play” capability. For further convenience, the controller also comes with a computer dock that allows a laptop’s keyboard to slip directly under the controller, bringing the monitor closer to the DJ, providing fast visuals of song information while mixing. The device adopts Pioneer’s “P-LOCK Fader Cap,” designed to prevent the fader caps from slipping.
