Product Description

A powerful piece of Pioneer DJ gear, the Pioneer DDJ-SZ takes the lead from technology and know-how cultivated through development of professional DJ equipment. The DDJ-SZ is a DJ controller with the same level of operability as Pioneer's professional DJ equipment offering the ability to create authentic DJ performances can be given as though playing with a component DJ system combining multi-player and mixer.

Big Jog

The DDJ-SZ features a Big Jog with a diameter of 206mm -- the same as that of the CDJ-2000NXS pro DJ/club-oriented multi player -- with excellent operability. Precise scratch performances have been made possible with the inclusion of an On Jog Display in the center of the Jog, showing the playback status and position. The popular Jog Feeling Adjust feature from the CDJ series also returns, so users can adjust to their liking the control load and continuous backspin time, etc. during scratch performances. The DDJ-SZ also features the industry's fastest Jog response time (the time from operation of the Jog until the operation signal is transmitted to the software), enabling scratch performances exactly as intended.

4-Channel Mixer

The DDJ-SZ inherits its control parts layout from Pioneer's professional-oriented DJM series, which is used in clubs around the world. With a simple, easy-to-understand layout, and generous spaces between each control part, the DDJ-SZ delivers comfortable, dynamic controls. Also, level meters are positioned next to the control interface for the master and each channel, so the input and output levels can be ascertained instantly during performance.

Performance Pad

Large rubber Performance Pads have been positioned at the front of the unit for control of functions such as "Hot Cue" and "Sampler". As well as being able to apply arrangements to music with dynamic actions such as hits and rolls, the audio volume of these actions can be made stronger or weaker depending on the strength with which the pads are hit. Also, the color and on/off status of the multicolor illuminations built into each pad make it possible to determine the mode of the selected pad and the performance status of all pads at a glance.

Two USB Sound Cards

Two sound cards and USB ports enable two computers to be connected at the same time. A dedicated A/B button on each side of the controller enables DJs to split the controller and assign each half between the two USB ports for seamless DJ handovers with no more awkward gaps in the music.

Performance Functions

DJs can enjoy even more creative freedom thanks to a high/low pass filter on every channel, including the two MIC channels and sampler, plus Master channel, while each effects can be fine-tuned using the large rotary parameter dial. High-quality FX include the Oscillator Noise, Siren, Cymbal and Horn -- as well as popular Sound Color FX -- Pitch, Echo, Jet, and Filter.

Oscillator

The DDJ-SZ is equipped with an Oscillator that emits four types of sound (Noise, Siren, Cymbal, Horn). Simply select the type of sound you want to output and turn the knob to produce developments in the music by overlaying sounds on top of the music being played, further emphasizing exciting parts of the music, and so on.

Sound Color FX

The DDJ-SZ includes four types of Sound Color FX functions (Pitch, Jet, Echo, Filter), which are a popular part of the DJM series. Various effects can be added to the music simply by turning the knob, opening up the possibility of a diverse range of remixes. It is also possible to synchronize ECHO to the BPM of the music being played by obtaining BPM information from Serato DJ.

Serato DJ

In addition to 4-deck and sampler functions, the latest Serato DJ software also comes with Slip Mode, and FX powered by iZotope to arrange tracks in a wide variety of styles. Slip Mode is a DJing function that allows tracks to continue playing in the background while other tracks are looped, scratched or hot cued, without affecting the original track. FX powered by iZotope is a high-quality FX developed by iZotope. With the effects, a DJ can apply more creative and more unique arrangement to the music.

Supports DVS control and can be used as a stand-alone mixer

The four external inputs allow DJs to connect CDJs and turntables and use the DDJ-SZ as a stand-alone four-channel mixer. In addition, the unit has two dedicated MIC inputs with Hi/Low EQ, enabling voice MCing without sacrificing mixer channels. Plus two Master Out ports (balanced and RCA) and one balanced Booth Out port mean DJs can connect to a variety of PA set-ups.

Pioneer Exclusive Magvel cross fader

The DDJ-SZ is equipped with Pioneer's own magnetic crossfader for smooth, steady control. Two metal shafts support the fader knobs, while the robust contact-free magnetic system can be used more than 10 million times. The operational load, fader curve and cut lag can be adjusted to suit the DJ's preference.

High Quality Audio Circuitry

The DDJ-SZ inherits high quality audio circuitry from Pioneer DJ's pro-DJ equipment, including two built-in 24-bit sound cards, a precision engineered Wolfson DAC providing a signal-to-noise ratio of 111 dB on the Master Out to ensure incredibly pure sound reproduction.

Features:

- All buttons and knobs, as well as the soundcard, are plug and play, configured for Serato DJ.
- Top plate and jog wheels built with an aluminum stylish finish
- Slip Mode for precision scratching: Slip Mode silently continues track playback during a loop, reverse or scratch, and brings the music back at the right point when the DJ exits the performance. It also adds a further level to the Performance Pads, enabling tricks such as Slip Hot Cue
- Needle Search: touch strip for intuitive, fast searches
- P-Lock Fader Caps are impossible to pull off in the heat of a mix.
- Auto Standby function switches to standby mode when no use or signal for a certain period of time.
- Big Jog for accurate performance
- 4 Channel Mixer using the same layout as in professional models
- Large pads for dynamic performance and comfortable controls
- Two USB soundcards for smooth DJ handovers
- Various performance functions deliver diverse music arrangements and smooth mixes
- The latest DJ software Serato DJ (free to download) for a truly unique DJing experience
- Supports DVS control and can be used as a stand-alone mixer
- Pioneer Exclusive MAGVEL cross fader for enhanced operability and durability
- High quality audio circuitry delivers a professional sound
