TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enter the world of DJing with the DDJ-200, our new smartphone and iPhone compatible smart DJ controller. Priced at just $149 USD, the DDJ-200 makes it easy to start DJing with the help of the Tutorial feature in our app, WeDJTM for iPhone (ver. 2.0), which you can download for free from the App Store.
For over 25 years we've been making DJ equipment, software, professional audio gear, and music production tools that have been used by everyone from bedroom DJs to global stars. Now, the DDJ-200 offers anyone – regardless of their musical or technical knowledge – an intuitive way to make the leap into mixing music. Designed with beginners and hobbyists in mind, the smart DJ controller is compatible with a variety of music streaming apps and offers access to features that demystify many aspects of the craft. You can use the DDJ-200 to mix tracks at home or on the go and take your first steps as an artist.
Connect the DDJ-200 to your iPhone and mix songs from your iTunes via our app, WeDJ. Or connect the software to SoundCloud Go+ and Beatport’s new Beatport LINK streaming service to access huge online sources of music. Download Algoriddim’s djay iOS/Android app and you can mix tracks from Spotify (Premium account required), or download MWM SAS’s edjing Mix iOS/Android app and access content from Deezer. Find more information about iOS/Android app compatibility and music streaming support below.
The layout of the buttons and dials on the DDJ-200 inherits the style of our professional DJ equipment to make it simple for you to get hands-on and find all the controls you need to perform. To help you get to grips with DJing as quickly as possible, we’ve added the Tutorial and Transition FX features to WeDJ for iPhone, both of which are popular with beginners.
The DDJ-200 will be available from mid-May at an MAP of $149 USD. The smart DJ controller is compatible with WeDJ for iPhone and our professional performance app for PC/Mac, rekordbox dj (worth $129). Simply download the software to your compatible device, plug in the controller and start DJing.
To help keep your DDJ-200 safe from bumps and scrapes on the road, the DJC-200 BAG will be available (EMEA only, not available in US). The DJ controller fits snugly into the custom-designed protective bag which features an EVA Durashock molded body, impact-resistant egg-foam, black ballistic polyester, and a soft, fleeced lining.

2. Tutorial and Pop-Hint features to help beginners enjoy DJing

WeDJ for iPhone also offers the Pop-Hint feature that explains the functions of buttons without switching screens. If you’ve never handled DJ hardware before, these features will help you get up and running, and performing, in no time.
3. Transition FX – easily perform professional sounding mixes with various styles
The DDJ-200 can reproduce various patterns of DJ mixes between tracks for people with no experience behind the decks. Activate the Transition FX feature in WeDJ, choose from 11 patterns*7 and simply slide the crossfader to switch from one track to the next via a professional-standard transition.
4. Phrase Sync – world’s first feature on a controller*8 for easy, natural switches between tracks
Our phrase analysis algorithms will analyze the composition of your tracks and detect phrases. When you tap the dedicated buttons in WeDJ for iPhone, Phrase Sync uses the information from this analysis to align the start and end positions of the phrases in two tracks so you can be sure it will sound natural when you switch between them. The DDJ-200 is the world’s first DJ controller to offer this kind of feature.
5. Compact, lightweight body for DJing anytime, anywhere
Take the DDJ-200 wherever you want, thanks to its lightweight and slim body. There’s no need to carry speakers because you can play sound from the built-in speaker of your smartphone, tablet, or PC/Mac. And the DJ controller can be powered via a power bank*9, so you don’t even need to stay close to an outlet.
6. Split output for DJ performances
Use split cables to separate the audio output of your smartphone, tablet, or PC/Mac into master and monitor outputs. This enables you to check audio via your headphones, e.g., cueing the next track, while the crowd hears the master sound playing through the speakers.
