We first marked the announcement of Pioneer’s consumer-level, multi-color DDJ-WeGO DJ controller back in August, just prior to its release. The unit sported a customized version of Virtual DJ at launch, but today Pioneer is showing off brand new support for using the controller with Algoriddim’s ever-popular application, djay for Mac.
WeGO owners will need to download a new firmware update for their controller, as well as a free LE copy of djay available on Algoriddim’s site. Take a look at the features that are a part of this software/hardware partnership demonstrated in the below video from Pioneer’s marketing department – not too shabby a setup for beginners:
With the DDJ-WeGO going for $290.62 on Amazon combined with a $19.99 copy of djay, it’s one of the slickest low cost complete DJ systems we’ve seen yet. Additionally, there’s no word yet on support for the controller with the iOS versions of djay, but we suspect it’s just a matter of time at this point.
