Released all the way back in 2013 (in ‘DJ controller years’ that’s a lifetime), the DDJ-WeGO2 is an ultra-compact DJ Controller that’s nearly the exact width as a 13″ laptop keyboard.
Pioneer DJ designed the WeGO2 to make it easy for bedroom DJs and hobbyists to learn the DJing essentials by providing users with a simple means of creating “cool and unique mixes with their own music collection”. It definitely screams ‘consumer’ due to Pioneer DJs unique application of LED’s and “pulse control”.
The DDJ-WeGO2 offers a smattering of advanced but easy to use, functions and features that make the art of DJing fun and simple including: FX, multi-color LED illumination, iPhone/iPad/iPod touch compatibility and support for DJ software such as DEX 3 and DEX 3 RE (with the download map file below).
Our team more recently wrapped up support for the newer and currently sold Pioneer WeGO3 and felt a few additional tweaks to the WeGO2 script were in order. Our DJ software and the way it communicates with DJ controllers has been greatly improved over the last 3 years and the updated script will offer tighter, more responsive control when using the WeGO2 to operate DEX 3 and DEX 3 RE.
For bedroom DJs or hobbyists the Pioneer WeGO2 is a solid option, it should hold up well for backpack trips to a friends house party and party-goers should enjoy the built in light show produced by the “Pulse” feature.

Pioneer DDJ-WeGO2 Description
MIXING MADE EASY
The DDJ-WeGO2 utilizes visual prompts and audio cues, built-in effects and features, and includes accessories to make DJ performances effortless:
- Jog FX – Allows users to combine multiple effects and control them simultaneously using the Jog wheel.
- Pulse Control – Provides users with visual prompts with a variety of colored lights on the Jog platters:
- Mix Pulse – Lights around the jog wheel show the beat of tracks in play. The lights lose intensity as the beats go out of sync, giving novices a visual aid to beat matching.
- Launch Pulse – A red light travels from the Load button to the jog wheel when a track has loaded successfully so DJs know when a track is ready to play.

- USB Powered – The DDJ-WeGO2 utilizes power from USB connections found on most computers, eliminating the need for an external power supply.
