Pioneer DJ announce the DDJ-REV5


AlphaTheta Corporation announces the release of the DDJ-REV5 scratch-style controller from its Pioneer DJ brand. This 2-channel, Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox compatible unit offer an authentic scratch experience and a variety of innovative features to enable more creative open-format DJ performances.
The DDJ-REV5 is equipped with large jog wheels for intricate and precise scratching when used with the robust and slick MAGVEL FADER. The long tempo sliders run horizontally above the deck sections while the Performance Pads and Lever FX are placed in the mixer section, emulating the setups loved by open-format DJs around the world.
The unit also comes with unique Stems control buttons for live mash-ups and remixes so you can individually play or mute different parts of any track: for example, the drums or vocals.

Large jog wheels and MAGVEL FADER

The large jog wheels are responsive, reliable, and easy to operate – with a feel just like those on classic CDJ units – and they each include a display with playhead position so you’ll always know where you are in the track. The MAGVEL FADER is slick, robust, and ready to translate every tiny movement you make so you can scratch with precision.

Dedicated buttons for easy Stems control

Your tracks will be split into different Stems within the software – vocals, melody, bass, and drums in Serato DJ Pro, or vocal, drums, and inst (other instruments including bass and synths) in rekordbox – which you can play separately.

New Piano Play mode

Just like Pitch Play, you can use the 16 Performance Pads to trigger a cue point in different semitones but, now, the changes in pitch are arranged so the pads form a keyboard, with the “white” keys on the bottom row and the “black” ones at the top, as if you’re playing a piano.

New Auto BPM Transition

Mixing between musical genres with vastly different tempos is easy on the DDJ-REV5, thanks to the new Auto BPM Transition feature. Choose a number of bars for the transition and, when you press the dedicated button, the track that’s playing will gradually change tempo to match the track loaded to the other deck so you can mix or drop in the new track at the perfect moment.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
