Mixing Made Easy

Built-in audio ports in the DDJ-WeGO deliver high quality sound input and output. A built-in sound card allows for expanded music storage and portability. This valuable DJ tool's compact size weighs less than four pounds for easy transportation.

Jog FX

The Jog FX feature allows users to combine multiple effects and control them simultaneously using the Jog wheel.

Pulse Control

Pulse Control provides users with visual prompts with a variety of colored lights on the Jog platters. The mix pulse mode shows the difference in pitch of songs currently playing through the light of the Jog wheel. As the pitch of songs begin to match, the intensity of the light increases, allowing the user to visually check that the beats are in sync. In conjunction with the music, the pulse of lights helps to improve beat matching skills. Launch pulse mode triggers a red light on the Jog wheel to signify that music has been loaded successfully. And FX pulse mode allows the effect being applied to the currently playing song will not only be heard, but will also be represented visually via the light movements on the Jog wheel.

USB Powered

The DDJ-WeGO utilizes power from USB connections found on most computers, eliminating the need for an external power supply.

The Pioneer DDJ series are mostly of plastic chassis (only exception is the DDJ-SX which is metal). I own 2 DDJ models, the T1 and the ERGO-V. I'm reviewing this product to let hobbyists and beginners know that this is a good product if you're looking on something to start with. As a professional turntablist, it's not a very serious product. As far as controllers go in this price range, you'll never regret paying for what it is "cheap and cheerful" not "cheap and nasty". The 2 deck layout is nice, the buttons are tactile and responsive unlike the Gemini CNTRL/FirstMix series or Numark Mixtrack. Like the ERGO-V, it's powered via USB but doesn't have "docking space" to tuck your laptop under the controller. Buyer beware, with all touch top sensitive platters I recommend buying a case or a lid for your controller unless you're a hardware junkie who can repair it at home. I know some other reviewer stated that the faders feel plasticy but I also own a few Pioneer mixers as well, as far as the fader buttons, they all feel plastic. What does matter is about the feel of it gliding back and forth and working reliably. All their faders are of the same standard whether if you pay $200 or $2000. They don't wear out unless you're just flat out abusing them. My only concern when I demoed the WeGO is that it's very light and feels easier to break.

Conclusion:

PROS:
- Actually cheap and cheerful, not cheap and nasty
- Tactile and responsive buttons
- Quality faders
- Compact design
- USB powered
- MIDI compatible w/ other DJ software

Cons:
- Professional standpoint, not "club-worthy" more of a small gig to gig or bedroom set
- Too light which feels like it's easier to snap
- First-timers, invest in a lid or case to protect the platter otherwise you'll know what I mean later.

Pros:

- Controls feel logically laid out
- Jog wheels are weighted
- Regardless of how you feel about Virtual DJ, the software and the hardware work great together
- Lots of lights on this controller. Looks great in a dark room. Lights are also useful for monitoring your mix
- Controller is bus powered, meaning it takes all of its power from your computers USB port. Amazing when you consider...
- ...it has a built in audio interface. Plug your speakers directly into it, as well as your headphones for beat matching
- Extremely portable, probably close to best in class for this, it's feature set, and price
- Already key mapped for Traktor Pro 2, and they work wonderfully together

Cons:

- Light weight and plasticky feeling cross fader*, but not as bad as really early offerings
- Feels sturdy enough for the bedroom, not necessarily for crazy house parties
- Cost is low IMO, but still possibly prohibitive to the target market
- Not much else, yet, but this is my first controller so I have nothing to compare it too. And I suspect that's exactly what Pioneer has in mind

If you're thinking about starting to DJ using a controller as opposed to turntables or a CDJ, this device from Pioneer could be a great starting point. I came from using 2 Technique 1210's and a Vestax mixer over 10 years ago, to getting this on a whim and feeling like I picked up right where I left off.

It's incredibly easy to set up so you'll be spending all of your time in the mix as opposed to troubleshooting. The fact that it's bus powered is a pretty big win in my opinion. Power goes out and you can still keep it moving so long as you've got some battery powered speakers. I do...

The Asio Sound Card that the WeGo came with keeps displaying errors. I looked it up online and it is a common occurence. Because of the sound card error the WeGo doesn't play right away and you have to keep trying to turn it off and back off again. It got pretty scary right before a gig I had when it decided to not recognize the Asio sound card. Also, everytime you try to minimize the screen our log off of the virtual dj screen it freezes everytime. So, don't try to minimize the screen while djing or you will be without music. Once it's going and you don't do anything but play music your fine.

Received the Pioneer DDJ WeGo for Christmas. I am an amateur DJ that spins house parties and the occasional reception/events for friends.

I am very happy with this controller. It is hard to beat its features/benefits for the price.
I also like that it is extremely portable. I use it with DJay by Algoriddim and it has worked flawlessly.
It is capable of handling most of the tasks that an amateur DJ would need.

I agree with other reviewers that it is likely a too small for a club DJ application...but anyone spinning at that level has the $$$ to spend on Pioneer's more professional gear.

bought it and returned it. reason: it stopped working with my macbook pro's (all 3 of them). I update the firmware, tried different OS's. it seemed to work best (when it did) with Virtual DJ LE, but never worked with Serato. I tried Panasonic customer support and could not get through. "Try your call later" (after navigating through their call center answering system). are they kidding? Also having support hours from 7am to 4pm Pacific Time seems inappropriate for DJ's. 4pm? Many DJ's are just having breakfast then. And yes, it's Pacific Time, California time, but Panasonic sells more DJ products in the U.S. to California than anywhere else, and California is the 12 largest economy in the world, so "Hello! Panasonic, get your customer support in order": 1. answer the phone 2. change your hours. 3. provide an online forum. thanks. (Interestingly, I picked up a Denon MC2000 and it worked right off the bat, no "not recognized" issues with the computers.)
