Which DJ controller will be on your 2013 shopping list?


It’s that time of year again where what’s new becomes old and we start looking for shinier, prettier, newer things. Whether it’s a new source for DJ music, new gigs to chase after or saving up for a new DJ controller, it’s something of which we are all guilty.

But since you’ve depleted your bank account buying you and your loved ones the newest gadgets this holiday season, it’s time to look forward. What else is there to look forward to in 2013 but the next DJ controllers to grace your DJ kit? What type of controller do you need for 2013? Is it all in one? For producers only?

Whatever you’re looking for in a DJ controller, here are a few to whet your whistle!

Hercules DJ Control Instinct

This is a good all-in-one DJ controller for those just starting out. While the body does leave a lot to be desired—it’s plastic, small and likely to succumb to usual DJ wear and tear—it also has a lot to endear it to the newcomer.

You get full version DJ software with a soundcard, which is

a huge plus if you’re on a budget or you don’t know a thing about soundcards. Probably the best thing is that this DJ controller has tutoring options that can really help a newbie; you can view the track lengths, the beats and it’ll even help you figure out which song works well after the one currently playing.

For just $121, this is one of the best DJ controllers for beginners and DJs on a budget!

Denon DN-X1600

If you’re looking for a midi-enabled mixer then the Denon DN-X1600 is probably the best DJ controller for you. In addition to a beautiful, sleek and easy to use design, this is a decidedly big step up from the older generation models. If you constantly gig at clubs (or you hope to) this model is just right for you.

You get a four page control area that allows you to map your software and it’s Traktor Scratch certified, making it ideal for software DJs. The one downside is that it is not reasonably priced ($979) so if you don’t need to upgrade just yet you may want to save up before you buy. However if it’s time for you to step up and buy big boy DJ equipment, the DN-X1600 is a good place to start.


MixVibes U-Mix Control Pro 2

This is one of the best DJ controllers for those steadily paving their way in the DJ world. It is an all in one DJ controller with a lot to offer. It may not look like much to the seasoned DJ who requires a good look, solid feel and easy navigation, but it does give you a lot of bang for your buck ($195 to be exact). You get 14-bit pitch faders, an easy to transport body, Mac and PC compatible and excellent software. You will have to eventually make the software upgrade if you want to access all possible features and inputs.

This is one of the best DJ controllers for mobile DJs who regularly need to pack up and head to the next gig location. This lightweight body (4 pounds) and small size makes it easy and fast for you to get from one club to the next without hours of set up.


Traktor Kontrol Z2

You can’t talk about the best DJ controllers without talking about one of the industry leaders; Native Instruments. This is a high end DJ controller that is perfect for DJs who utilize external decks. It comes with two stand-alone channels, an aluminum chassis, remix channels and allows you to use vinyl and CDs if you want to go old school for a gig or two.

The upgrades to the Kontrol Z2 include multi-colored buttons and cues, Flux Mode and mic inputs. This is a DJ controller for pros with a sleek design and colorful buttons so you instinctively know what you need to do without squinting and searching for buttons in the darkness of a nightclub.


At $799 you may not be quite prepared to lay down that kind of cash for a DJ controller, but it is a worthy purchase for 2013.

Pioneer CDJ-2000 nexus

If you’re looking for a really cool DJ controller that has a lot to offer, you’ll get it with the CDJ-2000 nexus which includes amazing features like rekordbox software, access to rekordbox apps on iOS devices, Android phones and tablets. If you’re a DJ who has been known to DJ from his iPad then your sets won’t have to suffer for it.

In addition to the return of Slip Mode you also get gridded waveforms, needle search, zoomable and SD & USB drive inputs. Basically this controllers gives you the functionality of a software controller with the beauty and ease of a hardware controller.


Of course all of these features come at a hefty price–$1995—but we think it’s well worth the cost if you’re looking for a unique device to help you take your DJing to the next level.
