JimboSpins's review"With ITCH only"

Pioneer DDJ-S1
The Pioneer DDJ-S1 is a controller for Serato and basically on for Serato. I am not sure if it is “officially” compatible with other software’s but I didn’t have good experiences when using it with other software programs like Virtual DJ (and a few others). Also, at first this controller seemed to be price a little too high to me, but after I got my hands on it I could see why it was more expensive. The build of it is very good, it is not made out of cheap plastic materials and provides a great feel for the user.
There are balanced XLR outputs and 2 XLR inputs and ¼ inch Phone to run it to PA equipment if needed. I was using this interface for a few months in 2011 and it never gave me any issues. When using this interface I did notice some small lagging issues via the microphone output when using it. It was a small delay when speaking and most of the time this was not really an issue because it did sound “cool”. But for some this could be a big issue. I have never used this for a major gig, mainly only smaller clubs and bars.
This controller is for the Serato ITCH user and lover. If you are not sure about using Serato ITCH I would not recommend this controller. If you are already familiar with each and love working with it then this controller will suit you perfectly. I do not recommend this to the new user either because it is restricted to Serato, I encourage new users to try a few different programs until they fine one they are comfortable using. The controller is a professional controller though, but it was not for me because I do not use Serato that much anymore like I use to .

I have been using it since March 2011 after testing it in a mixing conference show in paris. Before that I used the Reloop Digital Jockey Interface Edition 2 ... what I like most is to be able to find the location of the buttons (in pioneer) and not to have to look at the functions when you know the brand. Value for money is perfect, it's pioneer.

Pioneer DDJ-S1
How long have you use it?

Almost five months.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Controllers: Hercules DJ MP3 e2, Hercules DJ Control Air, Pioneer DDJ Wego
Tabletop Mixer: Reloop RMX 400 Blackfire

What thing do you like most and least?

-Large Pitch
-Semblable In materials / functions to Pioneer CDJs
-5 Hotcues
-Size Correct, easily transportable
-Slip Fashion
Start -Fader

-Jogs To "velocity", not as in touch Traktor Kontrol DDJ SX or S4
-5 Hotcues, it misses 3
Average -Integration to Serato DJ (no slicer, no assignable micro effects, no possibility to switch between sample libraries, no possibility to switch from to cut thru to the crossfader from the controller)
- A meter to 2 outputs so no master volume management back from the controller

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...

It was released in 2011 at a price of 1000 euros on Itch, too expensive. Today it can be found at prices ranging price from 300 to 700 euros, a far more decent rate.
If I had to buy a controller, I'd take over the S1, or even the SX or SZ, because the possibilities for live remixes are limited compared Traktor Kontrol S4 at home Native Instruments.

Overall rating:

S1 controller is often forgotten today when he came out there was 3 years old. I went from Wego in H1 and there is no comparison. With a design very CDJ 350 and a host of features, it can make good progress or move from / config CDJ Vinyls smoothly.
Serato is not my favorite but in my case (occasional discomobile) soft, the presence of meter is essential to me so I did not take the T1.
What I miss now is all the new features of the controllers to remix live, I think my Hotcues will soon morfler if it continues (thanks pads) ..

If you have the opportunity to have it used in 500th, go for it!
Above, take a DDJ SR or SX, or go to the competition ie Native.
