DDJ-SZ2: The Summit of Serato DJ ControlThe Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 is the ultimate club-ready controller with everything the modern DJ needs -- in one piece of hardware -- all seamlessly integrated with Serato DJ software. It's a complete four-channel mixer with large CDJ-style jog wheels, and multi-functional performance pads with customizable LED-illumination. It offers two USB sound cards for connecting two Mac or PC-based laptops simultaneously for instant DJ changeover or dynamic DJ battles. It also comes equipped with RCA inputs for connecting up to four CDJs or two turntables, and supports digital vinyl simulation (DVS) for spinning your MP3 collection from external media players.
The DDJ-SZ2 comes bundled with the latest version of Serato DJ, the Pitch 'n Time and Serato Flip expansion packs are also included so you can use the new features straight out the box.
New to the DDJ-SZ2More specifically tailored to take advantage of Serato expansion packs, the DDJ-SZ2 adds key adjust and sync buttons for use with Pitch 'n Time DJ and two new buttons for extra control of Serato Flip. The performance pads on the SZ2 now have a new "shift" layer for toggling Pitch Play mode. Also, each deck now has its own quantize button, and Pioneer has improved the jog wheel latency for better performance. It's like the DDJ-SZ, only better.
Pioneer Hardware and Serato DJ SoftwareFor decades, Pioneer CDJs have been the standard for professional-grade DJ gear in club environments.

This upgrade to their flagship Serato DJ controller allows you to get hands on with the latest additions to Serato DJ, including key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip. They've improved the jog wheel latency to make scratching more responsive and precise and the multi-coloured performance pads give you instant feedback on playing status and pad modes.
