Designed for Serato software users, specifically for "Serato DJ," the DDJ-SP1 is a slim and compact sub-controller that uses multiple performance pads, controls, buttons, and knobs to trigger a variety of unique audio samples and effects. The DDJ-SP1 is designed to be the ideal companion to Pioneer's new DJM-900SRT mixer but can also be matched with other systems via its MIDI controller functionality. The DDJ-SP1 takes your current DVS or controller setup and gives it the top performance features from the DDJ-SX, making it possible to combine the feeling of vinyl and CDJs, with the endless creativity that controllers introduced.

Designed for portability, the SP1 has a rugged build with an aluminum faceplate and requires only one USB connection to get going, so its perfect for gigs and clubs. The layout is simple and easy to navigate. The left and right sections both have the same controls for each deck, including the same 16 velocity-sensitive pads found on the DDJ-SX. When used with the sampler, they allow for truly expressive hands-on performance. You even get a dedicated sampler volume fader in the center for leveling it into the mix. Not only are the pads useful for sampler functions, use them to trigger hot cues, engage loops, loop rolls and remix the track using the Slicer function. There's a Sync button to keep the BPMs of your mix locked in, and a Slip button that enables you to use all of the features of Serato DJ, but never lose your track positioning or timing.

Serato DJ comes with a wide range of effects developed by iZotpoe, and they can each be fully controlled with the two FX sections located on the SP controller. You get a level depth control for each of the three effects that you have engaged, and a beat timer control. Each effect can also be triggered using the individual on/off switches. In the center you individually assign the FX, and performance controls to any of the four decks. This is also where you can find the browse controls where you can load tracks to the selected decks. The SP1 also has a dedicated Serato Video Control Mode, allowing you to add FX and transitions during your mix. The SP1 can integrate with any Serato system, so you can use your existing soundcard and DJ set up to get your music going and use the SP1 to perform with Serato DJ's enhanced features.

    completes the serato dj experience

    By Ron

    from Indianapolis, IN

    Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SP1 controller for Serato DJ:

    Still learning new tricks with this, but I will break it down like this. I bought the fx package from serato, and now I am able to have a complete fx experience. I would like to be able to scroll through effects to change during performances but if you are good with three extra killer fx then this is good enough. I would suggest the following for this unit: 1) enable fx banks for each channel so you can use more fx 2) enable switching between banks in the sp6 mode These may already be possibilities but I haven't figured them out yet. The overall quality build, and the sound that it gives is amazing. The convenience in loading tracks and switching between int and rel mode are very nice. I also enjoy the loop roll and slicer functions esp during my dance music sets. Definitely recommend this unit, doesn't matter if you are using a pioneer or a rane mixer.

    Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SP1 controller for Serato DJ:

    Have had Serato for a while, and realized that I hadn't been getting the most out of my mixing, because I wasn't accessing the effects and loop functions efficiently. After trying two other controllers for midi functions, I found that I had way too much stuff to remember with the midi setup. I finally broke down and decided to get the DDJ-SP1; it looks and feels great. The only issue that I'd had was when connecting the midi cable into the unit, I didn't realize initially that the cable had to be pushed in firmly until it clicks/locks into place. I thought that I had a faulty unit that kept losing the connection, but realized my error. Still learning my way around it, but it is very user friendly, and there's nothing to set up, just plug and play. Really liking the slicer function; lots of possibilities with this controller.
