Pioneer DDJ-REV5 Scratch-Style 2-Channel Performance Controller for Serato DJ Pro & Rekordbox

Finance - $ weekly (12 mths) | Show More


The DDJ-REV5 is a new-generation controller with Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox compatibility. This 2-channel unit offers an authentic scratch experience and innovative features including its large jogs, MAGVEL FADER, dedicated buttons for Stems control, the first-ever Auto BPM Transition, and Piano Play mode.

The large jog wheels are responsive, reliable, and easy to operate – with a feel just like those on classic CDJ units – and they each include a display with playhead position so you’ll always know where you are in the track. You can also customize the Jog Feel to find your perfect jog wheel “weight”. The MAGVEL FADER is slick, robust, and ready to translate every tiny movement you make so you can scratch with precision.

The long tempo sliders on the DDJ-REV5 run horizontally above the deck sections while the Performance Pads and Lever FX are placed in the mixer section for dynamic performances, emulating the PLX Series deck + DJM-S Series mixer setups loved by open-format DJs around the world. Thanks to the proximity of the pads, levers, and faders, you can fuse scratching with pad play and effects.

Easily make live mashups and remixes using the Stems buttons on the DDJ-REV5. Your tracks will be split into Stems within the software – vocals, melody, bass, and drums in Serato DJ Pro, or vocal, drums, and inst (other instruments including bass and synths) in rekordbox – which you can play separately. You can use the different Stems in combination with Deck Move, so it’s easy to make and control multiple live mashups and remixes at once.

Mixing between musical genres with vastly different tempos is easy with the new Auto BPM Transition. Choose a number of bars for the transition and, when you press the button, the playing track will gradually change tempo to match the one loaded to the other deck so you can seamlessly mix or drop in the new track. You can also set Stems, Auto Loop, and Key Lock control to be applied during the transition.

Just like Pitch Play, you can use the 16 Performance Pads to trigger a cue point in different semitones. But, with the new Piano Play mode, pitch changes are arranged so the pads form a piano keyboard, with the “white” keys on the bottom row and the “black” ones at the top. Choose from 3 scales and, even if you have no knowledge of musical theory or scales, you’ll find it easy to play a tune. You can use the DDJ-REV5 as the center of a larger setup thanks to its wide variety of inputs and outputs, including an XLR master out that’s perfect for use in professional environments. There are 2 USB Type-C ports for PC/Mac too, making it easy to swap between DJs with a simple flick of a switch on the controller.

Choose your favorite software and start DJing right away. You can simply plug the DDJ-REV5 into a PC/Mac running the latest version of Serato DJ Pro or rekordbox to use either application for free – you don’t need a license key or subscription. A voucher for the Serato Pitch 'n Time DJ expansion pack is also included.

This is a great controller

After doing a lot of research in to the ideal controller for me I landed on the Rev 5 from pioneer. I like the pioneer brand and the consistency in their products and I really wanted a 2 channel back to basics controller set up with the stems incorporated. I have found after about 40 hours of use in a couple of weeks that I chose correctly. The weight without the motorised platters of the Rev 7 works great with moving the unit around to gigs and at home. Love that the screens I. The middle of the jog wheel are very basic and all buttons and pads are responsive and work great. Being able to use 3 pad modes at once is awesome and the jog wheels feel great and love love love the magvel crossfadet. This is a significant upgrade in quality and sound quality from the Ddj sx3 which I have played on for the last 5 years and loved. The only reason I’m not giving this 5 stars is the dedicated stems buttons. I would rather have the stems effects on the secondary function instead of solo the stem. Other than that I’m super happy with how this controller operates. The crew at Mix Foundation as always make it easy to do business with them. Cheers team.
