There’s no “I” in “Team”, but there are three “I’s” in “Digital 1 Audio” (One more if you add the “Inc.”). Our tight group of individuals, each with their own unique set of skills, form one heck of a team that’s not only stood up to the test of time (20 years baby!), but has continued to pursue greatness with unwavering passion.

This is it. This is what we do, and what we get up early every morning and burn the midnight oil for. We strive to create innovative and disruptive DJ and live performance technology that makes your life easier and events more memorable. I honestly couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

It’s been a great year for new product releases, upgrades to existing products, and business in general. We fully understand that you’re the reason we’re here and we sincerely thank you. Those customers that have been championing our products by spreading the word and sending in referrals, you’re superstars in our eye’s. We truly can’t think you enough.

At the conclusion of each year we take a look back at he milestones and accomplishments attained for our DJ software and karaoke software lineup. Here’s how 2018 went for PCDJ:

2018 PCDJ Milestones
