Pioneer Builds Controller For The New Serato DJ Software


Pioneer is offering a new DJ controller designed specifically for the newly released Serato DJ Software.

Pioneer's DDJ-SX DJ controller utilizes the Serato software as the basis for its control layout, taking advantage of the software's features and integrating special trigger pads and controls. Pioneer has also implemented larger jog wheels for precise mixing and scratching, multiple inputs and 4-channel mixing flexibility.

Sold as a complete system that includes the controller and new Serato DJ software, the DDJ-SX provides additional features to provide direct control of the software's capabilities, which include a four deck sampler function, dual deck control, slip mode, FX mode and more.

- Dual Deck - The DDJ-SX enables two tracks to be controlled at the same time, allowing scratching or setting and recalling hot cues on both tracks as if they were performed on a single track.

- Slip Mode - While activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a performance loop, scratch or hot cue and resumes audible playback when the loop, scratch, or hot cue operation is ended, creating smoother and more seamless transitions.

- FX Mode - Provides access to two types of effect modes, Multi FX and Single FX



Multi FX Mode - Allows multiple effects to be applied simultaneously Single FX Mode - Allows a single effect to be controlled with numerous parameters

Additional Functions

Up to eight hot cue points can be set for each deck Vertical waveform display for fast tempo syncing Customized Control Layout Works as Great as it Looks

The DDJ-SX can access the multitude of features Serato DJ offers through its buttons, knobs, sliders and performance pads. Its buttons and knobs are designed to match the applicable software functions :

- Performance Pads - Pioneer added eight "performance pads" located below the jog wheel for four different functionalities -HOT CUE, ROLL, SLICER and SAMPLER. Each soft-touch rubber pad illuminates in blue to enable users to quickly tap the pad(s) for each effect, with the output volume varying depending on the strength of each tap.

- Large Jog Wheels - The jog wheels on the DDJ-SX are enlarged for more precise scratching and mixing. The resistance for each jog wheel was fined tuned to provide users with the best "feel" and the shortest latency. The unit also features an "On Jog" display located on the center of each wheel to provide instantaneous visual feedback of playback status and the position of playing tracks.

- 4-Channel Mixer - The DDJ-SX 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.

- Aluminum Finish - The DDJ-SX sports an aluminum top panel and a brushed aluminum finish for the jog wheels.

Additional Features

- Multiple Connection Options - The DDJ-SX offers dual CD and phono/line inputs for external devices as well as two microphone inputs, two master outputs (XLR and RCA) and a booth out terminal.
- A low-jitter clock and high-performance digital-to-analog converter (DAC) are used for accurate audio playback.
- Built-in Sound Card (audio interface)
- Needle Search - Users can immediately jump to a specific part of a music track with a simple touch of the Needle Search pad.
- Adjustable Cross-fader Curve to suit any type of mixing style.
- Channel Fader Start - Enables the use of the channel fader to control and play/cue tracks.

The DDJ-SX will be available in November 2012 with a suggested retail price of $1,199.

The first 10,000 units of the DDJ-SX sold worldwide will be bundled with a free license for the Serato Video plug-in .
