Pioneer DJ to display new DJS-1000 sampler at BPM | PRO 2017!

A new stand-alone DJ sampler that lets users create unique sounds and phrases using a DJ-friendly interface, Pioneer DJ’s DJS-1000 will be on display at BPM | PRO 2017 this weekend, giving visitors the chance to see it in action…

Aimed at professional DJs who like to utilise electronic instruments and production gear in their live sets, the new sampler has been designed to help DJs make their performances creative and unique. With an easy-to-use interface, 16 multi-coloured step input keys, 16 multi-coloured Performance Pads, a host of inputs and outputs, plus various other performance features, the DJS-1000 is a musical instrument ideal for taking into the booth.

Adding the DJS-1000 to their set-up will allow DJs to create unique sounds and phrases in advance of their set or on the fly, then sequence and loop them as they wish. They can also improvise new grooves by syncing and mixing with tracks playing on other equipment, such as CDJs, using the Beat Sync tempo slider and nudge features.

At a glance, the 7-inch full-colour touch screen also promises to give DJs all the information they need to perform, thanks to easily recognisable sequence patterns and instrument icons assigned to the Performance Pads.

Other features installed on the DJS-1000 include Live Sampling, which enables users to easily sample input sounds and immediately use them as independent tracks or as FX to add to the mix.

The DJS-1000 will be available from mid-October 2017 at an SRP of €1299 including VAT.
