Overview

The DDJ-SX2 is one of the industry's first controllers to give DJs dedicated control of the new Serato Flip functions within Serato DJ. Serato Flip is an expansion pack for Serato DJ that gives DJs the power to record and re-play hot cue sequences on the fly. The DDJ-SX2 controller now incorporates designated buttons - Record, Start, and Slot - to put intuitive Serato Flip performances right at your fingertips. The four-channel DDJ-SX2 builds on the popularity of its predecessor, but inherits two must-have features from the top-flight DDJ-SZ: Performance Pads with velocity sensitive, multi-colored LEDs and on-jog digital cue point markers. The DDJ-SX2 is also Serato DJ DVS upgrade ready and boasts improved jog wheel reaction time.

CONTROL LAYOUT
The DDJ-SX2 provides the same functional layout of its predecessor with quick access to a multitude of Serato DJ features. The layout of the buttons, knobs, sliders and Performance Pads deliver the best DJ controller experience designed to match the applicable software functions perfectly:

Multi-colored Performance Pads - Introduced in the top-of-the-line DDJ-SZ, the DDJ-SX2 now incorporates the highly attractive and functional multi-colored Performance Pads that control eight types of Serato DJ functions. The various illumination colors provide quick identification of the different actions/commands such as beats and drum rolls. The eight pads located below the Jog wheel offer HOT CUE, ROLL, SLICER and SAMPLER functionalities. While in velocity SAMPLER mode, the output level from the pad can vary depending on the strength of each tap from the user.

Amplified MIC Input - Improved from the first generation, the controller features a balanced microphone (MIC) input circuit to provide clear audio output with no distortion regardless of the type or brand of microphone used. The controller can deliver clear audio even at high volume levels because of increased headroom and highly improved signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio.
High Accuracy Jog Wheel - The output reaction time of the JOG wheels is significantly improved, further cutting down on latency, ensuring tasks such as "scratch" performances are at their highest levels. The model also features "Hot Cue Countdown" providing users, via its JOG Display, with the time remaining to a Hot Cue point, helpful in quickly arriving to a specified position in the music playing.

4-Channel Mixer - The DDJ-SX2 features an independent 4-channel mixer that can be used with other external sources such as turntables. Its master level meter provides instantaneous sound level adjustment as well as independent output controls with a display indicator for each channel when used as a standalone mixer.

EXPANDED FUNCTIONALITY
The DDJ-SX2 features four external inputs for connection with CD players, analog turntables, microphones and more, with the ability to act as a stand-alone mixer (without the need to connect to a PC/MAC). The controller includes two Master Out and one Booth Out outputs for connection to external public address (PA) equipment. The DDJ-SX2 also features support for the Serato DJ DVS function. Users will have the ability to purchase Serato's DVS Expansion Pack and perform Serato DJ deck control on the DDJ-SX2 with Pioneer CDJ players or analog turntables.

By Andrew

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX2 Performance DJ Controller:

DDJ-SX2 is very good cause its easy with the flip enable buttons it has. Make it easy to for the Serato Flip. It also helps i played around with the color cue point you can choose and it makes easier and quicker to react to them. ALso i like that you have DVS enable for you have to but the upgrade but its woth it if you reable want access to 4 decks. It runs smooth on my Macbook Pro havent had no issues at all

    Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX2 Performance DJ Controller:

    After a few years of using small plastic controllers, I finally decided to upgrade and I am very happy that I did. Pioneer is the #1 brand you find in bars, clubs, and events all over the world and I see why now. This controller is perfect for the mobile DJ, as it is compact but it packs a punch. It is not a controller I would recommend for someone just starting out, go with maybe an SB or SR but once you know the basics and actually have gigs, this is worth every penny. I wouldn't say I am a professional just yet, but with this controller, I feel I can really dig in and hone my skills to get even better. It has the Pioneer feel to it so I should be comfortable being thrown on CDJs, DJMs, whatever when I do a gig where a setup is already supplied (which is just about everywhere). Everything is mapped out perfectly for Serato. There are even some buttons and knobs that I never would have thought would be so useful, as it saves me from having to use my mouse. The only time I have to use the computer is when I am typing in a certain song or editing the colors of my hot cues. It is nice to have a controller that has everything I need all in one and keeps me from not having to check levels and upcoming cues on the screen and allows me to focus more on my crowd and my music.

              Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX2 Performance DJ Controller:

              I shopped around for a while and looked at pretty much every controller. Tried the SB2, but needed something more versatile. This has all the features you would need in a controller. Unlocks serato pro and a few add ons. The pads are great, good crossfader, needlesearch makes it easy to jump around songs, has both a 3.5 mm heaphone jack and 1/4 slot. This has everything you need. Not too heavy or big, so if you're just starting out or more experienced, get this controller, it's worth it. You can probably get this for about 800 if you wait for the right coupon or sale, seems to happen every 2 to 3 months. Put that extra money into a case or something.

                Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX2 Performance DJ Controller:

                I use the SX2 mostly for my mobile DJ gigs. I bought this item exactly a year ago. At first, it looked very intimidating because I never used a controller before. However, this is probably one of the best beginner and advanced controllers you could buy. I did my research between the SX2 and the SZ, I'm happy I got the SX2 because of its mobility and it's more compact than the SZ. Basically the SX2 the mini SZ. One thing I'll say, to think about if you plan to do turntable you probably going to have a difficult time doing it on a smaller wheel. Even on the SZ I find myself having a difficult time scratching. Don't get me wrong it still can be done but it's a little bit harder. It was easy to set everything up with my Mac, especially, I did not have any type of audio or DJ set up experience. I bought this to just for fun to play in small family parties but I ended up having the pleasure of playing for weddings, sweet sixteens, big birthday parties, and charity events within the year. Practice Practice Practice! Practice makes perfect!
