Serato DJs: Get your hands on Pioneer's top 4-channel DDJ controller -- now more responsive than ever, with key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip.
The 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-SZ2

More 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 DDJ-SZ2 DJ Controller

The DDJ-SZ2 builds on the strong foundations of its predecessor, Pioneer's flagship DDJ-SZ controller. This upgrade to their flagship Serato DJ controller allows you to get hands on with more recent 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.

The DDJ-SZ2 comes bundled with Serato DJ, the Pitch n' Time and Serato Flip expansion packs are also included so you can use them straight out the box.

Features:

DEDICATED CONTROLS
- Play with your keys and pitch, adjusting them while mixing with 3 Serato DJ functions embedded in your controller. Key shift, key sync and pitch play give you the power to play it by ear.
PLAY WITH YOUR PITCH
- Pitch Play grants you the freedom to hit your cues across a range of different keys. Use the Performance Pads to assign your Hot Cues and broaden the scope of your creativity at the touch of a button.
SERATO FLIP CONNECTION
- Record Hot Cue combinations with 3 dedicated buttons, enabling you to play back your tracks, make custom edits or even skip or repeat selected sections on loop.
PROFESSIONAL OSCILLATOR
- Create a more versatile sound by turning the knob to overlay your track with Noise, Drop, Laser or Siren. Modulate using the dial to add texture as well as tension to your tracks.
LARGE ALUMINIUM JOGS
- The DDJ-SZ2's full-sized jog wheels are optimized for a perfect scratch response and you can use Jog Feeling Adjust to set your preferred resistance. The jogs have illuminated cue point markers and an accurate countdown for even greater precision.
BACKLIT PERFORMANCE PADS
- The multi-colored backlit LEDs give you a visual reference to which modes are in play and will reflect cue points that you have preset in Serato DJ.

This is my first professional controller and I love it. I started with the Numark Mixpro II and wow such a huge difference. However, I can't knock my Numark because that was my beginner board for quite some time. Now that I have outgrown my little baby, it's time to enjoy all the extra features. It has many options to connect other attachments. I can control my volume and the fact that it has two sound cards embedded. That gets to be lots of fun if I have any of my friends dee jay with me. Totally worth every penny. I did lots of research and of course their is no perfect controller made, but this is rated on the top ten list. I know this controller will last me years to come. I can use Serato as it is made for Searato and if I want too, I have the option to map it to Virtual DJ. I like to have choices in case something should happen to either operating systems. You also receive in the packaging two Serato packets to download.
Musical Background:
I've been dee jaying for many years ...
Musical Style:
I love all types of music. I'm a Mobile DJ around the world regarding my job. I love it.
