"This is the first time we've made a course for a specific piece of DJ hardware - that's how important we think the Pioneer DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 controllers are for the future of digital DJing, and for the next generation of DJs.

"If you own one of these controllers, you've invested wisely in a DJ system that can grow with you. Now - don't you think it'd be a great idea to stay ahead of the pack by truly learning everything your controller has to offer?

Phil Morse, Digital DJ Tips School Founder
The Pioneer DDJ-1000 (and its smaller brother the DDJ-800) have rapidly become the "standard" when it comes to pro-quality DJ controllers. Pioneer is revolutionising DJ controllers, just like it revolutionised DJ booths with CDJs.

But there is just one problem. These are seriously complicated bits of kit - they're more "pro" than "beginner", with many of the features of top-end gear - which can make them frustrating for newcomers to get to grips with. 

And the thing is, if you don't get to grips with your DDJ-1000 or DDJ-800, not only will you only be using a fraction of what your controller can do, but when you do finally get the chance to play on "pro" club gear, you'll be lost!

In short, if you don't seriously pledge to learn everything about DJing on your DDJ-1000 or DDJ-800, you may as well have just bought something basic. Luckily it IS possible to get up to speed quickly. This course is your answer.

Step-by-step across seven modules and 39 individual video lessons, this course teaches you how to use every single feature of your DDJ-1000 or DDJ-800 Rekordbox controller, fast. You'll learn:
  • What all the parts are called, and exactly what they do - every single name and function clearly explained so you understand all the nuances of your controller's huge feature set
  • How to properly set up your controller - the right way to install the software, and hook your controller up to your laptop, speakers, turntables, microphones, media players and auxiliary sources
  • Where everything for day-to-day DJing is on your controller​- Adding music to your software, loading tracks onto all four decks, cueing and playing tracks, using the volume and EQ controls, using headphones, manual and sync tempo matching and beatmixing, beatgridding problem tracks...
  • How to make the most of the advanced features - using your DDJ-1000 or DDJ-800s' hotcues, pad FX (including how to customise them), beat jump , sampler, "keyboard" feature (to "play" riffs and acapellas), beat loops, key shifting (for instant mash-ups and remixes), slip mode - even how to start tracks with just the faders!
  • How to use the "pro" Sound Color and Beat FX - These are powerful features for expressive DJing, and are the same as those on pro DJ booth gear - but different to most  other DJ controllers you may have used. We'll show you how to conquer them...
  • How to configure all the options in the settings and utilities - Fine-tuning the Decks tab to get your jogs behaving in a way that suits your style, as well as adjusting the mixer settings to your liking... AND how to set the unique functions on both the DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 pages, so your system works how YOU want it to
  • Further ways of DJing with your DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 - Want to spin on vinyl with DVS? How about adding pro CDJs or XDJs in HID mode, to give yourself four physical decks? We show you how...
If you're returning to DJing after a break, or you've always wanted to do this but somehow never got around to it, or you're already DJing but you want to make sure you're doing it right, it's perfect for you. You're going to improve so much by applying these steps in your DJing. 

Likewise, if you've found our website, our free training videos, or our social content useful, this course is your natural next step. As a training programme, a guide, and a reference to come back to again and again, it's something you’ll hugely value having by your side. 

And if you're completely new to DJing, and have no idea where to start? Stop looking - this is the course you need.

The course works with ANY software and ANY hardware - again, doesn't matter if you're using Serato, Rekordbox, Traktor, Virtual DJ or any other software platform, and whether you're using a controller, a standalone systempro gear or even record decks.  It's for all brands, including Pioneer DJ, Numark, Denon DJ, RolandReloop and all the others. (Not even got a clue what to use yet? No problem - we'll show you.)
This is a complete, on-demand course, yours for life including all future updates, delivered online via our unique, custom-built training platform. It's in full HD across 39 video lessons, viewable on your computer, tablet or smartphone, so you can learn anywhere.

It uses multiple camera angles, on-screen annotations, close-up shots, and step-by-step explanations, making the lessons easy to follow and fun! 

You can bookmark lessons to come back to again and again (across this and any other courses you own from us), you can mark lessons as complete to chart your progress, and rate lessons, for your own use or to give feedback.

There are many choices out there for people wanting to learn DJ skills, from free YouTube videos, all the way up to university courses that demand years of commitment. So why do so many people choose Digital DJ Tips? Here are three big reasons... 


As well as being an authoritative, respected and globally recognised and Serato certified DJ school, has since 2010 grown to be one of the biggest DJ tech websites in the world, with 250,000 unique visitors a month, and established and popular YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels with over 750,000 followers and we have a popular weekly live DJ TV show, which is watched by as many as 25,000 DJs each episode. We also wrote the book on DJing, "Rock The Dancefloor!" by Phil Morse (an Amazon bestseller). We are right where it's happening.


Since we delivered our very first course in 2011, we've put high quality teaching at the heart of what we do. We have a proven system for teaching that's not only clear so beginners can easily follow along, but also thorough, taking students as far as they want to go, right to pro level. We prefer action over theory, and showing over telling, and we understand that coaching is just as important as information - in fact, information on its own is rarely enough! We also understand that our students have limited time, so all our training is designed to get you results fast, and fit around your busy life.


Online DJ training is unfortunately a bit of a "Wild West". But unlike many of the operations  out there, when you join us, you get much more than just a username and a password. We have a full-time team to make sure you're looked after, and we take our duty of care for you seriously.  All courses have in-course tutor help, right on tap. And if you ever need any extra help, with anything from technical stuff to billing enquiries, know that two of our team members are dedicated only to customer support. And of course, with our StudentHub and StudentLive community, you get to participate in the biggest DJ school student network anywhere in the world.

We have over 35,000 students in 168 countries. Here is some recent feedback from some of them...

"Your training has taught me everything I know in DJing..."

 I learned everything from beat matching to making transitions and gaining confidence- all ingredients needed for a DJ - the instructional videos are clear and concise and easy to follow- I could not have made it to where I am in my DJ career without these courses! - Maria Cruise

"These people absolutely know the industry inside and out..."

They are very willing to help in any way they can to make you better and more confident no matter where you are in the process. I am a student for life, and I'm proud to say I am associated with this group of instructors and fellow students... very proud indeed! - Michael Gerth

"The way your training is presented is fantastic, you and your team delivers so much inspiration through your video courses, it's amazing..."

The way your training is presented is fantastic, you and your team delivers so much inspiration through your video courses, it's amazing. I can see that you are having fun when you're teaching and this gives the students like me inspiration.
 - Jan Nordin

"I have never DJed before, yet the classes were perfect for me!"

"Your training is so clear and well explained, easy to understand (even for a non-native English speaker, like me) and gets me through all I need to know about playing great sets. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to be a better DJ, or just a person who loves music (like me) to improve their skills. My rating: 10/10! - Raul Mariano Jnr, Brazil

"I have been following your tutorials for years and they are really professionally prepared...."

I like the teachers, structure, the way the videos are recorded, and the amount of valuable input! For me it was like being coached (I am a coach myself) remotely, and unleashed some things that I was not aware of!
 - James Bidwell

"The course absolutely delivered on its promise..."

I'd never taken video training before so I was concerned that if I didn't understand something, I would have no way on asking questions to get help like in a classroom. I found out quickly that the answer to any question I had was just a message away. It's given me the confidence to know that I can handle any opportunity that comes my way. - Kiley Kozlowski, Canada 
"Is this a subscription? Do I have to take it in a certain timeframe?"
No, and no! This is a self-contained course, teaching you everything you need to know to use your DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 like a pro. You pay for it just once, and it's yours for life, including any future updates.

Buy it now and take it today, next week, next month, next year. Come back to it as often as you like. Our team is always there ready to help you with any questions you have, and there is absolutely no timeframe for taking it - take as long as you want. 
"Is this for the Serato DDJ-1000SRT controller, or just for the DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 Rekordbox controllers?
This is only for DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 Rekordbox controller users. While the DDJ-1000SRT is superficially similar to the Rekordbox controllers, it's a very different controller in many ways, and so the material here is not suitable for users of that controller. That's why we have a Rekordbox version of the course. 

One of the things that makes the DDJ-1000 and DDJ-800 Rekordbox controllers so exciting is that they are an awesome way for you to learn the "Pioneer DJ ecosystem" - once you can use them, you're very close to being able to use pro Pioneer gear in clubs worldwide. This isn't an advantage the DDJ-1000 Serato controller offers, and is one of the main reasons we decided to make this course.
"What makes this different from YouTube videos or other online training courses out there?"
There is nothing remotely like this in existence, period - nothing anywhere else has the depth, detail, or quality. We're the world authority in DJ training, and we work closely with Pioneer DJ - so you know you are learning from the best. It's by far the most comprehensive DJ hardware training out there.

What's more, we built our training platform from scratch to help you learn faster and have more fun - and you also get access to our monthly StudentLive "remote classroom" training when you sign up. This isn't simply an "online course" - it's the world's best Pioneer DDJ-1000 (& DDJ-800) training, that just happens to be taught online.
"How is this different from your other courses?"
DJing has five components: Gear, Music, Techniques, Playing Out and Promoting Yourself. We first shared this formula in our Amazon best-selling book, Rock The Dancefloor! - and we have courses that teach one, a few, or all aspects of this formula.

This course, though, is specifically about "Gear" - YOUR gear! We've never made a course of this size for any single piece of DJ equipment before, so you can think of it as an "essential companion", an "interactive manual" - in short, a great addition to any other training you may have or be considering buying from us.
Just like with all of our DJ training courses, How To DJ With Your Pioneer DD-1000 (& DDJ-800) comes with our cast-iron, no questions, 12 month money-back guarantee, which gives you more than enough time to get the results or get your money back - the risk is all ours. 

If at any time in your first year of ownership you decide it's not for you (for absolutely any reason), just tell us and we'll refund you with a smile. Nobody else offers a guarantee like this.
