7 of the Best DJ Controllers for Beginners in 2022 (under $600 range)

7 of the Best DJ Controllers for Beginners in 2022

Overview

In this buyer’s guide, we’ll provide a simple (yet comprehensive) overview of the 7 best DJ controllers for beginners in 2022, along with everything you need to make a buying decision.

As the market leaders in this category, these are the best entry-level DJ controllers under $600 USD.

The idea of this post isn’t to give an exhaustive review of each controller, necessarily, but instead to help you quickly identify the best DJ controller (or controllers) for your circumstances.

Need some help before we get started? 

Depending on where you’re at as a DJ, you might want to consider checking out these two posts before we jump in:

Post #1: A quick introduction to DJ Controllers: This post is mostly for beginners. It explains everything you need to know before splashing out on a DJ controller.

Post #2: A quick introduction to DJ software: This post provides an overview of the 4 biggest players in the DJ software market right now. It’s worth a read if you’re new to digital DJing, or even just skimming over if you need a recap on the key players and what that means for you.

Who exactly are these beginner DJ controllers for?

Assuming that you’re currently in the market for a DJ controller, these controllers will be most appropriate if you fall into one of these 4 categories:

  1. You’re an aspiring/beginner DJ just starting out.
  2. You’re a ‘just for fun’ or party DJ on a tight budget.
  3. You’re a ‘just for fun’ or party DJ that wants something basic and portable.
  4. You’re a working DJ of some sort looking for a budget backup controller to add to their existing home or studio setup.

How to choose?

As all of these controllers are roughly in the same price bracket (we’ve already done that bit for you), their build qualities and connectivity specs will often be fairly similar by comparison.

With that said, we’d suggest it’s more about which one you prefer and what your objectives are rather than getting too caught up in the specs.

So, once you have an idea of which DJ software you plan on using, what’s MOST important is to consider their unique selling points and what that means to YOU and your situation.

An important note before we get started

One common problem with some of these ‘best controller’ blogs you see online, is they tend to date very quickly. This is mainly due to the rate at which new DJ controllers hit the market.

This post, however, is regularly updated by our team as things change or appropriately when new controllers get released. 

In other words, whenever you’re reading this, you can rest assured that it’s as up-to-date as you’re going to get!

So then, here are 7 of the best DJ controllers for beginners in 2022!


1. Pioneer DJ DDJ-400 

Pioneer DJ DDJ-400 (the best pioneer dj controller for beginners)

Description:

The DDJ-400 is a beginner/entry-level DJ controller from Pioneer DJ. It comes with their proprietary music management and DJ software, rekordbox.

Others in this series include the middle-market DDJ-800 and the DDJ-1000 in the higher price bracket. It was released in 2018.

Power supply:

Powered by a USB connection to your laptop, it has a built-in 24-bit soundcard so you can directly plug in headphones, microphones and speakers. In other words, it’s ready to go out-of-the-box for PC or Mac.

Key features/specs:

  • 2-channel mixer.
  • Compatible with Pioneer’s rekordbox DJ software (licence also includes in-software tutorials for beginners).
  • Also compatible with Algoriddim’sdjay’ for iOS and ‘djay Pro’ for PC/Mac.
  • Layout designed to emulate Pioneer’s CDJ media players and DJM mixer club set up.
  • 3-band EQ as standard, with filter and gain knobs on each channel.
  • Large jog wheels with touch-capacitive response (the track will stop if you touch the top plate).
  • 8 multi-function performance pads for each channel for Hot Cues, Beat Looping, Beat Jump and Samples.
  • ‘Beat FX’ feature and onboard sequencer for enhanced performance capability.
  • Longer pitch fader range than on earlier models, for better manual beatmatching.
  • 1 x 4-inch microphone input.
  • 1 x 4-inch headphone jack.
  • Size: Width 482mm x Depth 272.4mm x Height 58.5mm.
  • Weight: 2.1kg.

Key takeaways/conclusion:

As the market leader in DJ hardware, Pioneer still dominates the DJ booth with its industry-standard club gear. The layout of the DDJ-400 is designed to mirror this workflow, offering beginner DJs a smoother transition to using their club gear if or when they decide to play out in bars & clubs.

Although rekordbox introduced a 3-tier subscription model earlier in 2020 (‘free’, ‘core’ and ‘creative’), fortunately, you’ll still get some of the ‘core’ features when you purchase a ‘hardware unlock’ controller (which includes this one). In other words, unless you decide to upgrade later, you won’t need to pay a monthly subscription for the software.

The DDJ-400 has everything you could possibly need or ask for in an entry-level controller. And as long as you’re happy jumping into the Pioneer/rekordbox ecosystem, there’s no doubt it would make an excellent choice for any beginner DJ.

Overall Rating:
★★★★★
★★★★★

Approximate price:

Between $250 & 300 USD.

Best suited to:

Aspiring club DJs looking to get started with Pioneer/rekordbox, and just anyone looking for a budget DJ controller for house parties, etc.

2.Traktor Kontrol S2 Mk3 

Traktor Kontrol S2 Mk3 - the best DJ controller for beginners if you use Traktor

Description:

Part of the broader Native Instruments brand, the Kontrol S2 Mk3 is Traktor’s flagship entry-level DJ controller for beginner DJs. It comes bundled with their proprietary Traktor Pro DJ software as standard.

The S2 is part of Traktor’s latest series of controllers, which also includes the mid-tier Kontrol S3 (a level up from this one) and the Kontrol S4 MK3 in the top-tier price bracket. The unit was released in 2018.

Power supply:

Powered by a USB connection to your laptop, it has a built-in 24-bit soundcard so you can directly plug in headphones, microphones and speakers. It’s ready to go out-of-the-box for PC or Mac.

Key features/specs:

  • 2-channel mixer.
  • Compatible with Traktor Pro DJ software (software can be used offline once installed).
  • 3-band EQ as standard, with filter and gain knobs on each channel.
  • Large silicone-damped, touch-sensitive jog wheels with rubber-coated outer rim (scratch friendly).

  • 8 multi-function performance pads for each channel for auto-looping, cue points and sampling.
  • Hyper-accurate pitch fader for better beat matching.
  • IOS input/power supply to run the Traktor DJ app.
  • 1 x 4-inch microphone input.
  • 1 x 4-inch / 8-inch headphone jack.
  • Size: Width 486mm x Depth 265mm x Height 59mm.
  • Weight: 2.4kg.

Key takeaways/conclusion:

The S2 MK3 has a nice build quality and user-friendly feel to it, and it’s the obvious entry-point for an aspiring DJ/producer that’s interested in using Traktor Pro.

Whilst it has to be mentioned that Traktor Pro isn’t seen as the market leader it once was, Traktor controllers are still a popular choice amongst DJ/producers of electronic music (a lot of techno DJs use it) due to their performance/live-remixing capabilities when integrated with the software.

As with the Pioneer DDJ-400, this unit is excellent value for money, and you definitely won’t need to upgrade the software later (there’s only one ‘Traktor Pro’ license). As with all the controllers in this price bracket, its size & portability make it perfect for outdoor gatherings and house parties as well.

Overall Rating:
★★★★★
★★★★★

Approximate price:

Between $250 & 350 USD.

Best suited to:

Beginner DJs looking to get started with Traktor, and anyone looking for a budget DJ controller for house parties, etc.

3. Numark Mixstream Pro

Numark Mixstream Pro - arguably the best DJ controller (or 'DJ system') for a beginner

Description:

The Mixstream Pro is a beginner/entry-level DJ system from Numark. It comes with Denon’s proprietary operating system Engine DJ built into the unit itself. Note that Numark and Denon are owned by the same parent company ‘inMusic’.

Released in October 2021, the Mixstream Pro is the only standalone DJ system on this list, which means it doesn’t require a laptop to operate it. It also has built-in WiFi connectively; another completely unique feature in this category.

Power supply:

It’s ready to go out of the box, either as a standalone unit (just plug it in) or as a DJ controller powered through your laptop/USB port.

Key features/specs:

  • 2-channel mixer.
  • Engine DJ embedded operating system for laptop-free DJing.
  • Built-in WiFi for access to streaming services: TIDAL, Beatport LINK, Beatsource LINK, and SoundCloud Go+ (subscriptions required) / option to stream your music library straight from Dropbox.
  • 7-inch multi-touch high-definition touchscreen (you can swipe, plus zoom in-and-out with your fingers).
  • Built-in speakers with volume control for home use/practicing; could also be used as monitor speakers at house parties or a small venue.
  • 3-band EQ as standard, with gain controls on each channel and a large filter knob on each deck.
  • 6-inch capacitive-touch jog wheels with Smart Scratch feature for on-beat scratching.
  • 2 x USB / 1 x SD Card input in the back for loading music files/MP3s.
  • Engine Lighting embedded lighting control for Philips Hue smart home and DMX lighting.
  • Dedicated FX section with 4 x effects and 2 x spring-loaded toggle switches (1 for each deck).
  • 4 x dual-layer performance pads on each deck (Cue, Saved Loop, Auto Loop, Roll) (dual-layer means that 4 can become 8 if required).
  • Pitch Bend buttons and dedicated Pitch Slider with 6 different selectable pitch ranges.
  • Balanced XLR / RCA Main outputs; meaning you can connect to professional sound systems.
  • 1 x 4-inch microphone input.
  • 1 x 4-inch / 8-inch headphone jack.
  • Size: Width 566mm x Depth 284mm x Height 74mm.
  • Weight: 3.68kg.

Key takeaways/conclusion:

Not only do you not need a laptop to operate the Mixstream Pro, it also has WiFi connectivity and built-in speakers. So technically, all you need to get going are a set of headphones and an applicable streaming subscription!

It’s the fact that it has Engine DJ’s operating system built-in, together with that large, high-definition touchscreen (with all the same functionality found on Denon’s Prime gear), why it’s easily the most expensive option in the category. At around $600 USD, it’s roughly double!

As the only standalone DJ system on this list, the Mixstream Pro is, in many ways, in a league of its own. As a present for a brand-new DJ with no laptop or digital music collection, it’s certainly the best out-of-the-box option. And whilst you may wish to use digital music files (MP3s, etc) and get some better speakers, if you’re only using this unit in your bedroom you don’t necessarily need to.

Note: If you DO have a laptop, you can use the Engine DJ desktop software to export your music library or playlists (if you own MP3s or other music files) onto USB drives and load it straight up. The unit can also read third party playlists/USB sticks, such as Rekordbox for example, and will convert them into an Engine playlist.

The Mixstream Pro has a solid, mostly plastic build, which is consistent with the competition in this beginner range.

Overall Rating:
★★★★★
★★★★★

Approximate price:

Upon release: $599 US / 599 Euro / £500.

Best suited to:

Beginner DJs that want to use streaming services and like the idea of DJing without a laptop. It would also make a good gift for someone without an MP3 collection and/or speakers.

4. Numark Mixtrack Platinum FX 

Numark Mixtrack Platinum FX - one of the DJ controllers for beginners

Description:

The Mixtrack Platinum FX is Numark’s flagship entry-level DJ controller for beginner DJs (note: it’s not a standalone DJ system like Numark’s Mixstream Pro). It comes bundled with Serato DJ Lite, which is standard for Serato controllers in this price bracket. It was released in May 2020.

Power supply:

Powered by a USB connection to your laptop, the Mixtrack Platinum FX has a built-in 24-bit soundcard, so you can directly plug in headphones, microphones and speakers. In other words, it’s ready to go out-of-the-box for PC or Mac.

Key features/specs:

  • 2-channel mixer, with 4-deck mixing capability.
  • Comes with Serato DJ Lite (Serato DJ Pro upgrade available/optional)
  • 3-band EQ as standard, with filter and gain knobs for each channel.
  • Large 6-inch jog touch-capacitive jog wheels.
  • Hi-res color LCD multi-function displays on each jog wheel; details essential track data such as BPM, Pitch, and time remaining.
  • 6 x onboard Serato FX  in the center of the controller with convenient on/off toggle (as found on some scratch/battle mixers)
  • 8 multi-function backlit performance pads on each deck for auto-looping, cue points and sampling.
  • Dedicated loop controls; positioned at the bottom-right of each deck
  • Long, sensitive 100mm pitch faders for accurate beat matching.
  • 1 x 4-inch microphone input.
  • 1 x 4-inch / 8-inch headphone jack.
  • Size: Width 536mm x Depth 246mm x Height 51mm.
  • Weight: 2.3kg.

Key takeaways/conclusion:

It has to be said, the build quality of the Mixtrack Platinum FX is excellent – the buttons, performance pads, and jog wheels all feel great. Also, it’s the only DJ controller in this category that offers high-res, ‘on jog’ displays – minimizing the time you’d usually spend staring at your laptop.

Like the other 6 controllers on this list, it has all the necessary functionality (and more) required for a beginner DJ that’s just getting started. And whilst there’s no doubt it’s fantastic value for money, just don’t forget to factor in the software upgrade to Serato DJ Pro later on.

Overall Rating:
★★★★★
★★★★★

Approximate price:

Between $250 & 350 USD.

Best suited to:

A beginner DJ looking to get started with Serato in the most cost-effective way; one that’s not necessarily decided on a particular direction yet.

5. Roland DJ-202

Roland DJ-202 - one of the best DJ controllers for beginners/electronic producers

Description:

Targeted at DJ/producers, the DJ-202 is Roland’s entry-level controller for beginner DJs. It comes bundled with Serato DJ Lite.

Released back in late 2017, it’s part of their flagship series of DJ controllers that also includes the mid-tier DJ-505 and the DJ-808 in the upper price bracket.

Power supply:

The DJ-202 is powered by a USB connection to your laptop and has a built-in 24-bit soundcard so you can directly plug in headphones, microphones and speakers. It’s ready to go out-of-the-box for PC or Mac.

  • 8 multi-function performance pads for each channel; for Hot Cues, Loops, Sequencer and sampling.

  • 1 x 4-inch headphone jack.
  • Size: Width 478mm x Depth 297mm x Height 62mm.
  • Weight: 2.1kg.

Key takeaways/conclusion:

There’s no question the DJ-202 is a fantastic option for Serato users, and/or if you’re an aspiring DJ/producer of electronic music. In addition to its excellent performance capabilities, the inclusion of the classic drum machine samples from the acid house era of the late 80s is a fantastic selling point.

Just remember, you’ll want to upgrade to Serato DJ Pro at some point if you’re half-serious. Once again, its size & portability make it perfect for outdoor gatherings and house parties!

Overall Rating:
★★★★★
★★★★★

Approximate price:

Between $300 & 400 USD.

Best suited to:

Aspiring electronic music DJ/producers and musicians that currently use (or want to use) Serato.

6: Pioneer DJ DDJ-REV1

Pioneer DJ ddj-rev1

Description:

Released in January 2022, The DDJ-REV1 is an entry-level DJ controller from Pioneer DJ that’s specifically targeted at aspiring scratch DJs.

Same as the Numark Platinum FX and the Roland DJ-202, it comes bundled with Serato DJ Lite, which is standard for Serato controllers in this price bracket. It also works with Virtual DJ.

Power supply:

It’s powered by a USB connection to your laptop, with a built-in 24-bit soundcard so you can directly plug in headphones, microphones and speakers etc. In other words, it’s ready to go out-of-the-box for PC or Mac.

Key features/specs:

  • 2-channel mixer, 4-deck capability within Serato DJ Lite.
  • Comes with Serato DJ Lite (Serato DJ Pro upgrade available/optional)
  • Also works with Virtual DJ.
  • Layout designed to closely mimic a battle-style/scratch DJ setup, ie two turntables turned 90 degrees with the tempo adjust and other controls at the top.
  • Battle-style Paddle FX controls on the mixer; layout mimics Pioneer’s DJM-S7 and DJM-S11 pro mixers.
  • 3-band EQ as standard, with filter and gain knobs on each channel.
  • Large, touch-capacitive, 4.5-inch jog wheels optimized for scratching.
  • 8 x performance pads for each channel for Hot Cues, Auto Loop, Tracking Scratch, Sampler, Trans and Scratch Bank.
  • Multiple ‘Tracking Scratch’ pad modes for assisted scratching.
  • ‘Scratch Bank’ pad mode allows you to load scratch samples from 4 banks that you’ve assigned in the software (works in Serato DJ Lite).
  • Long 60mm pitch controls for accurate beat matching.
  • 1 x 4-inch microphone input.
  • 1 x 4-inch headphone jack.
  • Size: Width 526mm x Depth 256mm x Height 59mm.
  • Weight: 2.1kg

Key takeaways/conclusion:

The DDJ-REV1 is the follow on from the DDJ-SB3 (from 2018), and Pioneer has gone all-in with regards to targeting aspiring scratch/battle DJs.

As you can see, all the deck controls (pitch fader, etc.) are located at the top as if you’d turned an actual turntable on its side. Also, the layout of the mixer is designed to closely mimic Pioneer’s DJM-S7 and DJM-S11 pro battle mixers, with the performance pads located on the mixer rather than on each deck (battle style), creating more room to manoeuvre for scratching.

It’s worth noting that the buttons are slightly smaller than you’d typically get in this price bracket, which might cause an issue if you have big hands.

It’s a fairly simple equation this one: Unless you’re an aspiring scratch DJ, there are probably better options on this list, simply because of the layout/workflow of the unit. However, if this is you, then the REV1 is definitely a no-brainer in this price bracket.

When you do have more cash, the logical step up from here would either be to get the REV7 in the upper price bracket or a set of turntables with a battle-style DJM-S11 pro mixer (or the S7 mixer).

Overall Rating:
★★★★★
★★★★★

Approximate price:

$249 USD when it came out in January 2022.

Best suited to:

As well as aspiring scratch/battle DJs; just any beginner DJ on a tight budget that likes the look of the controller.
