EXCLUSIVE: native control of the new Serato DJ software
Serato DJ combines the popular features of Serato ITCH and Serato Scratch Live, and adds new features that will be popular with lovers of both. Pioneer worked closely with Serato to combine the features of the software with the operability of the hardware to create true plug-and-play compatibility and intuitive control.
In addition to four-deck control, the DDJ-SX has dedicated controls for new features including:
NEW: FX engine Powered by iZotope
Serato DJs FX engine, now powered by popular manufacturer iZotope, features ten high-quality sound effects, including REVERB, ECHO and PING PONG DELAY.
Dual Deck Control for advanced live edits
DJs can push a button to enter Dual Deck mode and apply scratches, recall Hot Cues, perform loops, use the Slicer and Slip Mode all on two decks at the same time. Trigger a Hot Cue on Deck A and one will also trigger on Deck C.
Plus old favourites such as:
- Eight cue points on each deck
- Syncable six slot sample bank
- Auto Loops, Manual Loops and Loop Roll, for even more loop options
- Slicer to chop up tracks and create new arrangements*
Enhanced performance features for truly hands-on live performances
The DDJ-SX inherits the familiar layout from Pioneer's popular controller range, with a few updates to make the DJing experience even more enjoyable. Pro-DJs can use a combination of buttons, dials, faders, jog wheels and Performance Pads to stamp their mark on every set.
NEW! Performance Pads make mashing up tracks even more fun
The DDJ-SX's large, rubber Performance Pads are assigned to four modes: Hot Cue, Roll, Sample and Slicer. The LED illuminated pads'Velocity Mode means sample volume is controlled by the pressure applied, giving even more control and really putting the DJ back in the performance.
Slip Mode for precision edits
Inherited from the new club-standard CDJ-2000nexus, 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.
Improved jog wheel enhances scratching pleasure
The DDJ-SX has the industrys lowest latency jog wheel that has been fine-tuned to ensure DJs always get the scratch response they expect. Plus the controller borrows the backlit-LED On-Jog Display from the club-standard CDJs, showing the playback status of the current track for even greater scratch and reverse precision.
Sound Colour Filters on every channel
Like the DJM-900nexus professional mixer, the DDJ-SX boasts a Sound Colour Filter for each channel. DJs twist the dial left for Lo Pass Filter and right for Hi Pass Filter, for even more creative sweeps, blends and FX manipulation. This works with the software and external sources, with a hardware filter built-in.
Professional build quality and design
The controller has been built with the rigours of professional use in mind. The high-quality faders are robust and durable, while the push-button style knobs were designed with portability in mind. And the aluminium jog wheels and top plate give the DDJ-SX a premium look that will fit right into any booth.
Multiple input and output options for every DJ set-up
The DDJ-SX is equipped with a variety of inputs and outputs, for ultimate flexibility. Four inputs allow DJs to connect the controller to DJ players and/or turntables, to use it as a stand-alone mixer. Two master outputs (XLR and RCA) and a booth output enable connections direct to professional PA equipment. And two MIC inputs open up possibilities for MCing and announcements.
High audio quality
The controller inherits its high-quality audio circuitry from Pioneer's pro-DJ equipment. A built-in 24-bit soundcard, low-jitter clock and high-performance DAC ensure a clean, powerful sound with no degradation.
