By Ahsan Khan, 13 August, 2021 Forum Hardware and Accessories I’m thinking of purchasing a DDJ 1000 to use with djay Pro AI. Is this controller accessible? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Accessibility Hi, I have had the DDJ1000 and used it with Djay software for a few years now. You don't specify if it's the Mac version or the IOS version of the software. I would say yes, it's accessible on the Mac, but not so much on IOS. That being said, as accessible as the software is, it's a very steep learning curve if you've never used a controller with the software before. Also, you need to do lots of practice to learn the button layout of the controller as it's got a lot of features on it. Pressing buttons on the controller doesn't give you any feedback as to what is happening on screen, apart from scrolling through a song list, which it does read. So you'd need to practice to get to know what each button does and this is where some sighted assistance would be handy in the early stages to help guide you through the process. If you've got any specific questions feel free to drop me a message direct and I'll see if I can help. Cheers, Stu. Hi, I began with Pioneer's… Hi, I began with Pioneer's DDJwego 4 and then moved on to the Tracter S3 controller. An easy way to learn what each button on your controller does is to open the Midi menu and then press "Configure + controller name". A window will open inside which you'll find a table. This table contains the list of buttons and their function. Press a button on your controller and VO will jump straight to its line in the table. Scroll to the left or right and you'll read what function it has. Once you're used to your controller and you find you need a more ergonomic set up, you can change the function of each button. Proceed carefully as it can become messy very rapidly. Good luck!
