Pioneer Unveils DDJ-ERGO-K

Pioneer’s DDJ-ERGO-V controller is known for its usability, sleek design and compatibility with virtually all DJ software. Now available in black, the unit undergone a bit of a remix thanks to chrome-plated Play/Cue buttons, white LEDs encircling the jog wheel, and rubber pots on the dials. The DDJ-ERGO-K has been ergonomically designed to work natively with Traktor LE 2 software which comes bundled in the box. The controller’s layout mirrors Traktor LE 2’s graphical user interface so the software’s most important features are intuitively positioned and accessible at the touch of a button. The DDJ-ERGO-K will be available in September 2012 (£429/€499 EUR, including VAT). No word yet on its availability in North America. Below is a list of other key features and a nifty promo video.
