Pioneer DJ have announced the DDJ-200, a new controller for their WeDJ app, recently announced as the first app that will stream Beatport's catalogue directly into the software. The controller features two channels, with two mini jog wheels, 16 performance pads in total, two faders and a crossfader. It also features a basic three-band EQ and a single FX knob, with assignable FX per channel.
Round back there's a single USB port – the controller doesn't feature any audio outputs, you'll have to use the outputs of whatever device you're using. The controller is designed for the Pioneer DJ app WeDJ for iPhone, which now streams Beatport and SoundCloud for those with appropriate accounts. It's the first step into streaming for DJ apps, and this is the first controller specifically designed for a streaming app.
