Pioneer DDJ-ERGO-V To Support djay 4
The Pioneer DDJ-ERGO-V controller now benefits from native plug & play support built into Algoriddim’s djay software. This collaboration provides instant pairing of Pioneer’s high quality sound and intuitive operability to the popular and ever sophisticated djay 4 for Mac OSX Lion.
“We were blown away by the new version of djay and felt it was a perfect fit for the DDJ-ERGO-V” said Jason Pook, Product Development Manager for Pioneer Europe. “djay packs powerful and innovative features such as Harmonic Match™, enhanced audio FX, and a visual key match wheel.”
Since its introduction in September 2011, the DDJ-ERGO-V controller has been lauded for its sharp design and portable dimensions. Like djay 4 for Mac, the DDJ-ERGO-V places an emphasis on the DJing experience - bringing simplicity to both set-up and performance without compromising on features or sound quality.
The native integration of the DDJ-ERGO-V with djay enables direct access to all key features via dedicated controls, mirroring djay’s graphical user interface. Ensuring a seamless and easy user experience, the unique DDJ-ERGO-V Pulse Control gives a visual representation of pitch, beat and decks in use.
“We are thrilled to pair djay with a controller as sophisticated and fun to use as Pioneer’s DDJ-ERGO-V”, said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “We have always believed in making djay a tool for all levels of DJs. Supporting the DDJ-ERGO-V allows professionals and enthusiasts alike to enjoy this elegant and simple combination of hardware plus software.”
djay 4 has a stunning and efficient visual interface that pros and beginners alike can appreciate for its ease of use while delivering forward-thinking features. Harmonic Match is a perfect example of djay’s seamless integration with the Mac platform and features the iTunes browsing interface built in. djay automatically registers the key of each playing song and matches it to songs of the same key in the iTunes library. For users of djay for iPad or iPhone, djay automatically syncs cue points and other metadata created while using djay over-the-air via Apple’s iCloud service to be readily available when performing live.
The DDJ-ERGO-V controller is available at a suggested retail price of £400 including VAT.
