Both of these mixers restored the popularity of Pioneer mixers after Rane gained popularity again. Now, the Pioneer brand has made waves yet again by releasing its new motorized battle controller. The new REV7 was released as part of the entry-level REV1 and was designed to be the ultimate controller.

The Jog wheels

The DDJ-REV7 comes with dual motorizes steel platters 9 inches long that have built-in jog displays. Unlike what you would typically find on the Rane 1 controller, the REV7 does not have a central spindle which means that the controller can have screens mid-jog.

The Mixer section


The new DDJ-REV7 also has a battle-style mixer section. The controller consists of 2 channel faders and a Magvel Pro fader, which is easily one of the most advanced in the market.
