Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3 Review

Its a cool looking controller with an aluminum finish on top and a hard plastic shell all around. It looks a lot more “Pro” grade than its previous models.

It works with multiple IPad DJ softwares, its powered by AC adapter, that charges the controller itself, and charges the IOS device you are using. There is also a USB on it that allows you to charge it.

There is a connection so you can plug in your IOS device obviously, also there are 2 headphone adapters, a mic jack with volume control and unbalanced RCA connections.

The WeGO3 comes with Virtual DJ LE and djay for Mac LE, and works with Serato DJ Intro.

The controller works well with most DJ softwares, and its great if you don’t know which software you want to use yet.

When using the WeGO3, the jogs are nice and responsive , buttons are spaced well and are easily operated giving the size of the unit.

The EQ knobs are spaced well, the faders are a bit short for my liking which was a negative, this might make it harder for some to manually beatmatch.

You are able to loop with the 3 buttons and is easier to do than the Mixtrack Pro 3.

Conclusion

The Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3 is one of the best beginner DJ controllers, if you want to use your IPad or Iphone. Its great because it works with a lot of different DJ softwares.

The lightshow gimmick from the jog wheels is a cool added feature, but might not be used by a lot of users. Still its a cool addition if you want to show off and DJ at the same time.

Its a great controller if you just want to have fun and not invest a whole lot, it looks cool and is portable and it will be a great controller for house parties. Also check out the Beatmix 2 if youre not sold on the WeGO3 just yet.
