At the heart of each deck on the DDJ-REV7 is the new 7-inch motorized jog wheel which features the same rotational stability as a 12-inch turntable and is built to feel like you’re playing with real records.
The acrylic top plate is finished with a vinyl-like texture for effortless finger grip, and you can choose between low and high torque settings and use the two slip sheets included inside each deck to find your preferred amount of friction. Switch between a rotation speed of 33? or 45rpm whenever you like and use the Stop Time setting to adjust how long it takes for the music to end when you press pause.
In the center of each jog wheel, a 3.5-inch LCD keeps important information at your fingertips so there’s far less need to switch your gaze between the decks and your laptop. Thanks to an omnidirectional viewing angle, you can see what’s being displayed from any angle, and you can turn off the digital marker that indicates the playback position whenever you want. You can also mark each jog wheel with the included stickers if you prefer this method to the digital marker.
The DDJ-REV7 has 4 original scratch samples that you can trigger by pressing the corresponding hardware buttons. Because the sounds are built in, you can fire them at any time – even if the controller isn’t connected to your laptop. If you want to use your own samples in your set, you can instantly load scratch samples from 4 banks that you’ve assigned in Serato DJ Pro with the Scratch Bank feature.
