The DDJ-ERGO-V controller will offer native support of Serato DJ Intro software from mid December, providing intuitive operability and high quality sound to Serato users who love to play out.

16 November 2011, updated 15 December 2011

Already popular for its sharp design and portable dimensions, the DDJ-ERGO-V places emphasis on the DJing experience, bringing simplicity to both set-up and performance without compromising on features or sound quality.

The DDJ-ERGO features two players and a two-channel mixer, making it the perfect partner for Serato DJ Intro.

The DDJ-ERGO-V is the perfect partner for Serato DJ Intro; its layout mirrors the software’s graphical user interface (GUI) and all of its major features are available via dedicated controls. DJs can access Serato DJ Intro’s two decks, while Hot Cues, samplers and effects are positioned for instinctive operation.

As part of our continued efforts to make products that are loved by all DJs, the DDJ-ERGO-V comes bundled with Atomix Productions’ Virtual DJ Limited Edition and a TSI control file for Traktor software. The MIDI output already makes it compatible with most other DJ software on the market. And from December, it will offer native control of Serato DJ Intro – making it one of the most versatile controllers a DJ can buy.

    The DDJ-ERGO features two players and a two-channel mixer, making it the perfect partner for Serato DJ Intro. DJs can showcase their skills with dedicated buttons and knobs for all their favourite Serato DJ Intro features, including Hot Cues, samplers and effects.
  • Innovative laptop integration keeps GUI in DJ’s view at all times
    Our laptop design enables DJs to place laptop keyboards underneath the controller to use as little space as possible and keep Serato’s GUI in their line of sight at all times. The controller can be adapted to sitting or standing positions using its removable legs, making it perfect for every set up.
  • Plug-and-play through a single USB
    DJs simply need to connect the DDJ-ERGO-V to a laptop running the latest version of Serato DJ Intro , and the software settings will be automatically updated. The controller is fully USB-powered, without compromising on audio output or lighting levels. So DJs can just arrive at a venue, plug and play.
  • Boasts features from our pro range for top quality sound and ease of operability
    The DDJ-ERGO boasts many features that are unusual at this price point, including the 115mm Jog Wheel from the pro-DJ range. The controller has also inherited the same layout as the popular DDJ-T1 and DDJ-S1 controllers. Plus the controller employs the same audio circuitry as our professional mixers for the master out terminal, ensuring a clear, powerful reproduction with no sound degradation.
