Pioneer DJ just released a silver version of the Pioneer DJ DDJ-400, the DDJ-400-S. At the same time, the DDJ-400 is now compatible with Algoriddim’s djay Pro for Mac and Windows.

This means that from now on, you can stream tracks from Spotify Premium with the DDJ-400 (and the DDJ-400-S) using djay Pro, which is great if you already have a DDJ-400 and a Spotify Premium subscription.

If you are considering the DDJ-400, the offer just got better, as the DDJ-400 was already a great entry-level controller for Rekordbox DJ. With its club-style layout (the effect section is integrated into the mixer, much like on professional mixers), large jog wheels, 8 performance pads per deck and high-quality build, it’s a very good way to get started.
