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 who 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 specs will often be fairly similar by comparison. With that said, we’d suggest focusing more on their unique selling points and what that means to YOU and your situation.

Depending on where you’re at as a DJ, you might also 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 6 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.

So then, here are 7 of the best DJ controllers for beginners in 2024!


1. Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX4 

Overhead photo of the Pioneer DDJ-FLX4

Description:

The DDJ-FLX4 is the flagship beginner/entry-level DJ controller from Pioneer DJ. It comes with their proprietary music management and DJ software, Rekordbox, and also works with Serato and Algoriddim’s djay.

Others in the series include the middle-market DDJ-FLX6 and the DDJ-FLX10 in the upper price bracket.

Best suited to:

1} Aspiring club DJs looking to get started with Pioneer/Rekordbox, 2} Hobbyists who are looking for a versatile beginner unit with streaming and multiple software options, and 3} Anyone looking for a budget controller for house parties, etc.

Approximate price:

$300 USD | £320 GBP | €350 Euro | $630 AU (Buy on Sweetwater | Buy on Amazon).

Key features/specs
2-deck, 2-channel DJ controller
Works with Pioneer’s Rekordbox DJ software and Serato DJ Lite out-of-the-box (subscription needed to activate Serato DJ Pro)
Integration with streaming services: TIDAL, Beatport Streaming, Beatsource Streaming, and SoundCloud Go+
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
Beat FX and sound colour FX
8 back-lit rubber performance pads on each channel for Hot Cues, Pad FX, Beat Jump and Sampler
‘Smart Fader’ – adjusts the volume, bass, and BPM as you transition (think of it like a ‘do it for me’ transition)
‘Smart CFX’ – executes a combination of FX with a single knob (beginner friendly)
Connected via USB-C for a more secure connection compared to the standard USB-B
USB audio output for recording mixes as well as microphone audio
1 x 4-inch microphone input
1 x 4-inch headphone jack
Size: Width 482mm x Depth 272.8mm x Height 59.2mm
Weight: 2.1kg

Key takeaways/conclusion:

Released in November 2022, the DDJ-FLX4 effectively replaced the popular DDJ-400 as Pioneer’s flagship controller for beginner DJs.

As well as being a more versatile unit than the DDJ-400 – in part because it also works with Serato DJ – Pioneer has introduced beginner-friendly features on the FLX4 such as the “Smart Fader’’ (think of it like a ‘do it for me’ transition), and also “Smart CFX”, which executes a combination of FX with a single knob.

Other than that, in terms of build quality and layout – ie Jog wheels, faders, knobs, buttons, performance pads, etc. – the FLX4 is very similar to its older counterpart.

Whilst the FLX4 works perfectly well with Serato DJ Lite, we’d recommend sticking with Rekordbox. This way you can utilize 16 pad modes rather than 8 straight out-of-the-box, and you won’t have any need for a ‘paid’ upgrade later, as with Serato (note: both software providers support DJ-relevant streaming services including TIDAL, Beatport Streaming, Beatsource, and SoundCloud Go+).

In conclusion… there’s no doubt this unit has everything you could ask for in an entry-level DJ controller – and you really can’t go wrong at 300 bucks! Additionally, if you use it with Rekordbox on your phone, you’ll be able to connect via Bluetooth or a USB cable – which may appeal to some.

2. Numark Mixstream Pro / Pro + / Pro Go

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

Description:

Aimed at beginner DJs, the Mixstream Pro is a standalone DJ system from Numark. It comes with Denon’s proprietary operating system Engine DJ built into the unit itself and also works with Serato DJ and Virtual DJ using a connected laptop.

Note that Numark and Denon are owned by the same parent company ‘inMusic’.

Originally released in October 2021, the Mixstream Pro is the only standalone system on this list, which means it doesn’t require a laptop to operate it. It also has built-in speakers and WiFi connectivity – two more unique features in this category.

The latest ‘Pro Go’ version of the unit released in May 2023 has a rechargeable battery for DJing on the ‘go’. See our boxout in the conclusion for more details on the different models and how they affect the price.

Best suited to:

Beginner DJs who 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.

Approximate price:

Between $640 and $840 (USD) depending on which edition you get (Buy on Sweetwater | Buy on Amazon).

Key features/specs
2-channel mixer
Engine DJ embedded operating system for laptop-free DJing
The unit works as a DJ controller with Serato DJ and Virtual DJ (licenses required, although Serato DJ Lite is free)
Built-in WiFi for access to streaming services: TIDAL, Beatport Streaming, Beatsource and SoundCloud Go+ with the option to stream your music library straight from Dropbox (subscriptions required. Note that the Pro + version of the unit also works with Amazon Music)
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/practising; 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 significantly more expensive than most in the category.

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.

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. For more resources, check out Numark’s feature overview video below or visit the manufacturer’s product page.

The different editions…

It’s important to note that the Pro+ and the Pro Go have the same build specs as the original model released back in 2021. Here are the key differences and pricing with the three units:

* Numark Mixstream Pro is $640 US (original unit, as released in 2021).

* Numark Mixstream Pro+ is $699 US (the only difference: it works with Amazon Music. This was released in January 2023).

* Numark Mixstream Pro Go is $840 US (key differences: it has a rechargeable battery + silver colour scheme. This edition was released in May 2023 and also works with Amazon Music).

3. Numark Mixtrack Platinum FX 

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

Description:

The Mixtrack Platinum FX is Numark’s flagship entry-level DJ controller for beginner DJs. It comes bundled with Serato DJ Lite, which is standard for Serato controllers in this price bracket. It was released in May 2020.

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.

Approximate price:

$279 USD | £250 GBP | €300 Euro | $450 AU (Buy on Sweetwater | Buy on Amazon).

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 colour 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 centre 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, that 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 who’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.

Best suited to:

1} DJs on a budget who want the authentic feel of mixing vinyl, 2} Beginners looking for ‘something a bit different’, and 3} Aspiring scratch/battle DJs.

Key takeaways/conclusion:

Once again, the DJControl Inpulse T7 is easily the cheapest DJ controller on the market to offer motorized platters. And whilst they’re not as premium as on the Pioneer DDJ-REV7 or Rane One in the top-tier price bracket, it’s still nice to see something like this accessible to beginners!

The unit comes with Serato DJ Lite in the box (paid upgrade required for Serato DJ Pro), and also Hercules’s ‘DJUCED’ software, giving beginners a choice.

The Inpulse T7 is extremely light-weight, featuring 3-band EQ, filter knobs on each channel, 2 x ‘battle-style’ FX paddles in the middle, on-board Stems controls (for use with Serato), 8 x performance pads per deck, and retractable feet as seen on their Inpulse 500.

For an extra $100, there’s also a premium edition of the T7 which has gold paintwork, improved faders, and an included carry case (more details of that here).

5: 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, it comes bundled with Serato DJ Lite, which is standard for Serato controllers in this price bracket. It also works with Virtual DJ.

Best suited to:

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

Approximate price:

$279 USD | £300 GBP | €350 Euro | $500 AU (Buy on Sweetwater | Buy on Amazon).

Key features/specs
2-channel mixer, 4-deck capability within Serato DJ Lite. Also works with Virtual DJ
Comes with Serato DJ Lite (Serato DJ Pro upgrade available/optional)
Layout designed to closely mimic a battle-style/scratch DJ setup, i.e. 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 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).

6.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.

Best suited to:

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

Approximate price:

$340 USD | £275 GBP | €300 Euro | $530 AU

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 who’s interested in using Traktor Pro software.

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

As with the Pioneer DDJ-FLX4, this unit is excellent value for money, and you definitely won’t need to upgrade the software later (apart from an optional add-on, 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.

FAQs

What is a DJ controller?

A DJ controller is simply an all-in-one unit that’s designed to replicate the traditional ‘two decks and a mixer’ DJ setup. Most DJ controllers require a connected laptop to operate them, although some have a ‘standalone mode’, which simply means you don’t need a connected laptop to operate it. These units are usually referred to as ‘standalone DJ systems’.

Are DJ controllers good for beginners?

Getting a DJ controller is a no-brainer place to start for most beginners: they’re smaller, lighter, more portable, and have more capability than any other DJ hardware setup on the market for the price. Thanks to a connected laptop, you’re going to enjoy more FX, performance technology, and other convenient DJ tools all in one unit.

What is the best DJ controller for beginners?

Whilst it partly depends on which DJ software you plan on using, some of the best DJ controllers for beginners include the DDJ-FLX4 from Pioneer DJ, the Mixstream Pro from Numark, and the Kontrol S2 MK3 from Traktor. All of these units have everything a beginner DJ could possibly need to get started.

What does a beginner DJ need to get started?

In addition to your DJ controller and accompanying DJ software, you’re also going to need a set of DJ headphones, a half-decent laptop, and ideally a couple of monitor speakers. Unless you plan on using DJ-relevant streaming services like Beatport Streaming and Tidal, you’ll also need some digital music files – i.e. MP3s.

Can I DJ with just a laptop?

If you don’t have the budget for a DJ controller, and/or if you just want to have a mix without buying any equipment, you can just use a laptop. There are plenty of free DJ software programs online if you only need basic functionality, or you can simply download one of many free mixing applications.

What features should I look for in a beginner-friendly DJ controller?

Beginners should look for a DJ controller with intuitive software compatibility, a simple layout, responsive jog wheels, and essential features like 3-band EQ, faders, and performance pads. They should also consider what audio outputs it has based on what they plan on using it for.
