Pioneer DDJ-T1
It is now two years since I used. I had not tried any model before buying it except a small controller Hercules is incomparable.

What I like most is the affected Pioneer, I've realized when I tested other plates are less sensitive buttons less pleasant ect.
I also really appreciate Tracktor. The DDJ T1 4 track which is nice.
What I like least is the price of the flight case ^^.

I find the quality / price ratio great especially now because it casiment half price. It is great for beginners and for professional development. It takes up very little space which is convenient when it is transported.
I think I would do this choice with experience.

freud91's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ideal for those who can not invest in CDJ"

Pioneer DDJ-T1
How long have you use it?

I use it for almost 1 year and a half.


Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Very few controllers, but I had all kinds of CDJ (200, 800, 1000 850) and I had the opportunity to mix on CDJ 2000.
I specify that gave it to me for my birthday.


What is the particular feature you like best and least?

PLUS:
- The pots, faders and buttons are the same as a set CDJ + DJM, so that someone who is used to mix on CDJ is not lost.
- Any kind of features available with Traktor, for which we need to invest a lot of money if you want to stay in CDJ.
- 2 mini boxes effects (one above each plate) on which you can assign three different effects, 7 or 8 are delivered with the software and you can download more. I would add that the effects available on both Traktor and a DJM, operate more accurately and are more manageable than the DJM.
- You can see the entire spectrum of each track (2 or 4 to choose from), in the same way as the nexus CDJ900 or CDJ2000, but with the precision of a real computer screen.


LESS:
- Slight lag somewhat surprising coming out of CDJ, but little embarrassing and that you get used quickly. I said that my pc is not very powerful, so it just be upgraded with a beefier machine.
- Fear of computers: The controller is completely dependent on the PC (or Mac), if the plant ... more sound!
Until now it has never happened to me, but when we do parties, we always branch CDJ and DJM more ...
- The routes console 4 is only for 4-way Traktor. There is no connection to connect CDJ, unlike KontrolS4 for example, and that's a shame!
- The size of the machine: For me it is a PLUS is approached by a pair of small CDJ (200, 350, 400) with a console, which is nice when you are accustomed to real turntables. But for some, it should be a problem, because once in a flight case, it takes almost as much space as real turntables. It loses one of the strengths of the controller: portability. But retains the main: the price!


How would you rate the quality / price?

Excellent as base can already do more things, more simply with the CDJ, and of course, as is the Traktor software on computer, there are always things to download more ... (but no need to my part).


With experience, you do again this choice?

As I said earlier, this is a gift ... But this gift has not happened by chance, friends familiar with the gear mix ...
And for my part if I had to buy a controller, I would have taken this one ;)


PS: T1 (Traktor) is ideal for electronic music, HipHop and for those who like scratch, S1 (with Serrato) is more suitable and jog too.

Pioneer DDJ-T1
I use it for 8 months now
Not very little, especially the numark controller and no

Goodies:
4 votes
Traktor that I found very complicated at first
section pretty cool effect
plug and play

Cons:
I already change the due play / pause button not great for the price and the pioneer qualtité
Sometimes I confuse decks A / C or B / D

Qualitie The report price is pretty good but only occasionally, and with the experience I would do without hesitation that choice!

freund75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent but ..."

Pioneer DDJ-T1
For 5 months.

Yes, CDJ 1000 MK3, DJM600, CDJ 500.

I love the plug and play, no need to be a computer to start using it.
The all-in-one for a nominal fee.
The size of jogs, it is really comfortable with.
The needle search, very convenient not need to turn jogs like a nag to find the right time to the song.

I do not like the finish: plastic ...
The lack of XLR is boring usually in clubs or elsewhere, it's XLR. If you are mobile you obtain 2 adapters Jack XLR male.
Jogs are a bit noisy despite their good sizes.
The absence of a VU meter on the console.
The absence of booth monitor, can not connect back and adjust the volume from the console

With the experience I remake that choice without hesitation. This is a good compromise between the pro and semi-pro

Shepper_H2F's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Predatory pricing to product"

Pioneer DDJ-T1
How long have you use it?
I use it for 1year and a half

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes I had a Hercules RMX

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The +:
The handling of the controller very fast, easy to use with traktor, needs no configuration you connect and played directly, but is no problem has occurred to the levels.
easily transported with carrying bag designed for.
A beautiful aesthetic superb finishes.
You can use the effect on 4 track at the same time and combine three different, on the other hand there are only 2 commands Indeed, it is to say that there will have two effects on two that are identical, but you can select or set ABC or D or four at a time.
The quick search panel (practice ultras)

The -:
No XLR out (in the end it's boring)
sound quality not so good What say whether lack of volume and have is connect directly to a PA system, require to have a governing
loss of earnings are sent when the effects really annoying for a mix!
Button to 1year I start having games in the joystick and start to be less accurate (I mix out as much)
You can not connect two decks above!

How would you rate the quality / price?
too expensive for what it is, the price is unfair. I buy has the basis for a sharp tip is broke me with the final effect I like to play on my old Hercules.

With experience, you do again this choice?
NO, and I de-board, unless you buy to € 300 occasions!

christine83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Bewildered by many beugs appeared after one year"

Pioneer DDJ-T1
Bought it less than a year and immediately the failure of a Cue "impossible" And yet, true and repaired.
This year in June, full training: a loud noise in the PC speakers echoed the monitoring of clicks to destroy anything!
We cut everything back on and it is the B slap instead of a song. The next day is the C.
Verdict of all: "you were told that without Mac, it would not work ..." An Asus PC over 6 RAM, CPU and disk unparalleled dedicated to music "
I await the diagnosis of Pioneer France through LAB 7, much more open to discussion Directorate sale France and the dealer where "everything is possible" "It's the fault of the PC"
Two days later, a colleague sent me several notices (in English) denouncing the same problems! Fortunately, my equipment is not damaged and I test my T1 every day thinking about the exchange against another identical. Would I fell on a bad run? Possible but blocked and can not afford my services!

Padawan06's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Pioneer always effective"

Pioneer DDJ-T1
Bought it a little less than a year,
former follower of vinyl on turntables Technics MKII (90-2000 years)
Very good "all in one" who has remained in my last nickel delivery 8am
no loss of sound quality, it is "Pioneer"!
It does not feel completely "lost" when the material then passes on "Pro" (CDJ800/1000/2000)

Good workaround if one has not the huge budget to equip the entire range directly CDJ2000 Nexus :)

The +:
- 4 "boards" (unlike the DDJ-S1 has only 2)
- Good reactivity
- Very good sound card

The -:
- Research pieces
- No USB slot to put the key made at the last minute ;-)

Remarks:
The "needle search" that my taste might be an option for use with effects like the CDJ2000
Incompatibility with RecordBox (no "controllers" is not elsewhere and it is a shame)

houselover83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" bof"

Pioneer DDJ-T1
I used it in a bar (their gear) with my traktor scratch pro 2 (I play timecode in general)

Very well recognized by traktor, the no worries, however it is very'' old'' plastic when compared to S4, shitting in the mix with a hollow point due to the pitch to + / - 0.5 it is not react the software, not to mention a notch knob hard for loops (in native is 100x better)
short short is not the foot with respect to S2/S4/DDJ SX ..

So I bought the DDJ SX to mix at the bar, and it changes your life!.

Charly302's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Well!"

Pioneer DDJ-T1
I use it for more than a year.

Traktor Kontrol S4.

Pros: Ergonomics, the arrangement of the controls (the visual light), ease of use, the effects in Traktor Pro!
The -: The jogs might be those CDJ's high ranges for such a price, the price, the audio input for use in mixer (CF S4) Traktor Pro not included.

Value for money: good (due to lower prices).
