Mixing Made Easy

  • Through  various visual and audio cues, the DDJ-WeGO DJ controller makes it easy for beginners to learn how to mix with built-in effects and features:
  • Jog  FX  – Allows users to combine multiple effects and control them simultaneously using the Jog wheel.
  • Pulse Control – Provides users with visual prompts with a variety of colored lights on the Jog platters:
    • Mix Pulse – 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 – Triggers a red light on the Jog wheel to signify that music has been loaded successfully.
    • FX  Pulse  – 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.
  • DJ  Software  – The DDJ-WeGO is bundled with the “Virtual DJ Limited Edition”  software by Atomix Productions (Windows or Mac) that offers a  broad  range of functions for mixing songs, including making loops and  creating samples,  as  well  as  the  ability to mix up to four channels  for  unlimited user creativity and mixes.  The DDJ-WeGO has the ability to support other DJ software including Algoriddim “djay.”
  • USB Power – The DDJ-WeGO utilizes power from USB connections found on most computers, eliminating the need for an external power supply.

Other features

  • Built-in audio ports for high quality sound input and output.
  • Built-in sound card for expanded music storage and portability.
  • Compact  size  and  weighs  less  than  four  pounds  for easy transportation.
