DDJ-T1 controller is about to get improved. On the heels of Native Instruments’ release of TRAKTOR 2, Pioneer will today update the DDJ-T1 software to TRAKTOR PIONEER DDJ-T1 EDITION 2.

The update includes an improved user interface with a high-resolution colour waveform display and greater zoom levels, for more detailed cue point setting. And the improved synchronisation accuracy makes advanced four-deck mixing even quicker and easier.

The DDJ-T1 controller bundled with the latest software will be on the shelves from late August. If you already own a DDJ-T1 there’s no need to wait – download the TRAKTOR PIONEER DDJ-T1 EDITION 2 software free of charge from today. And DJs already using TRAKTOR PRO 2 can just plug-and-play with any DDJ-T1 controller.

Clear, high-resolution colour waveform display

The operability of the DDJ-T1 is even better than before, thanks to a new, easier to use, interface with high-resolution colour waveform display:

  • The waveform is colour-coded by instrument, making it quicker and easier to view beat elements – such as kick, hi-hat and snare – and plan creative mixes in advance.
  • The number of zoom levels on the display has increased from two to nine – for more detailed cue point setting and ultimate control using the job wheel and cue buttons.
  • In addition to the innovative laptop integration design of the DDJ-T1, which places the laptop screen in DJ’s line of sight at all times, the improved user interface minimises eye movements for more instinctive operation.

Improved synchronisation accuracy

TRAKTOR’s automatic tempo synchronisation is now even more accurate for effortless beat mixing at the touch of a button.
