The DDJ-SB2 takes you beyond control. Not only does it boast all popular features from the DDJ-SB, it also adds some amazing new pro-DJ functions, as well...

Hitting the decks has never been easier and more intuitive - even for first-time DJs. This controller has been upgraded with 4-deck control and dedicated buttons to switch between channels effortlessly. Plus a trim knob and level meters to master the input volume, and Pad Trans beat effects will uplift your DJ skills in no time.

Serato DJ Intro
Download Serato DJ Intro, connect your computer to the controller and start DJing. You can easily organise and build music libraries or integrate songs from iTunes. Just drag a track to the deck, set and trigger cues, loops and samples, and apply basic FX.

Ultimate ease of set up
The DDJ is USB powered, so you can simply connect the controller to your computer using the provided USB cable – there is no need for additional connections.

Built-in soundcard
No more hassle with external soundcards. Thanks to its built-in soundcard, this controller connects straight to your speakers or amplifier

Tactile Performance Pads
Four rubber pads enable you to trigger Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler – while a further four give immediate access to Play, Cue, Sync and Shift functions.

Large Jog Wheels
This compact controller comes with large jog wheels, providing a dynamic performance with great scratch response and accuracy.

Authentic & dynamic DJ play
The TRIM knob gives you control of the input volume for each channel, while the level meters allow you to adjust it quickly and accurately.

Manual Filter
On every channel, to manipulate tracks input from either the software or external hardware.

Make The Cut
With the Quantized Pad Trans beat effect, you can cut the volume in time with the BPM by simply hitting the performance pads.

Do more than just mix
By hitting the Filter Fade button, you can add two high pass filters to the crossfader – so both volume and bass filter can be manipulated using just one hand. Seamless mixing becomes effortless.

MIDI Controller
Fully assignable MIDI functionality can transmit most control information to external devices and can also be used as a MIDI controller.

Comments about Pioneer Ddj-Sb2 Portable 2-Channel Dj Controller For Serato Dj:

In have Been a DJ since vinyl and have been looking for a controller that is Pioneer and I can afford.
This suits all my needs and then some. The action with Decks is unlike any I have tested. They are perfect, the layout of the entire Deck Controller is nice and familiar. But the Ddj-Sb2 does so much more. Bottom Line - It's a PIONEER. Everything about it is Pro! Also the price is Right!!

  • Smooth controls
  • Virtual DJ compatibilty

Cons

  • low-quality Mic input
  • Noisy and gets Interfernce

Best Uses

  • On the Go
  • Practice

Comments about Pioneer Ddj-Sb2 Portable 2-Channel Dj Controller For Serato Dj:

The DDJ-SB2 is a excellent controller for beginners, amateurs, or for constant mobile DJs. I love everything about this controller in terms of functionality. It works excellent, very responsive, ease of use ... until I discovered a problem... A SERIOUS PROBLEM!! While a song is paused, I noticed a lot of hiss and interference from the Controller into the mixer and into the FOH speakers. Even though I lowered the Mic volume, I switched RCA cables, I switched mixers, switched computers, switched USB cables, and I even used a Stereo DI box AND THE NOISE & INTERFERENCE DOESN'T GO AWAY!! I discovered that the culprit of the problem is within the controller itself. I opened it and found an open ground connection at the RCAs and very poor shielding of the Mic input. C'MON PIONEER!!! 40 days had passed and unfortunately, I can NO LONGER RETURN IT. Buy a controller that has balanced TRS or XLR outputs!

Great Little Controller - with one MAJOR problem

By 

from South Florida

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Pioneer Ddj-Sb2 Portable 2-Channel Dj Controller For Serato Dj:

Great little mixer/controller,except for one thing - the most important thing. There is a PRONOUNCED hiss coming from the output, and there is apparently no way to mitigate it. I have tried everything: swapping cables, master/trim/filter settings, numerous speakers, numerous laptops, and in fact numerous DDJ SB2 units. I am on my third one is as many months, all with the exact same problem, which was easily duplicated in the Sam Ash store where I bought the unit. Returning this one and I am done with Pioneer. Tech support says the same two things each time I call to report the problem: 1) we've never heard of that happening, and 2) return it or send it in for repair. Thing is, this hissing issue is ALL OVER the internet, so it's obviously not just me - and it's impossible that Pioneer has never heard of the issue. NEVER AGAIN. Too bad, cause otherwise I like it a lot.

Jump Start Your DJ Career

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

Pros

  • Ease Of Use
  • Easy To Transition From
  • Quality Entry Level Gear

Cons

  • Only Serato Intro

Best Uses

  • Aspiring Bedroom Dj
  • Learning The Craft
  • Practice Parties

Comments about Pioneer Ddj-Sb2 Portable 2-Channel Dj Controller For Serato Dj:

Thinking about getting into DJ'ing? If you want to seriously consider making it a career, look no further than THE entry level piece from Pioneer. Aside from making it easy to transition into pro gear like the first version of the Pioneer DDJ-SBx line accomplished, the SB2 has 4 decks and 2 channels unlike the 2 decks and 2 channels of the SB1. This allows for set transition to be easier without cutting the music in a party.

The only downside is that it comes with Serato Intro, but the good news is that it will work with the full program, so the upgrade lane is seamless.

Perfect For Getting Started

By 

from Los Angeles CA

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Pioneer Ddj-Sb2 Portable 2-Channel Dj Controller For Serato Dj:

The SB2 is the perfect controller if you are looking at getting into the DJ world or if you just need something simple to practice with. It's USB powered so cables are at a minimum. It's light, easy to use and responsive. The price point makes this guy the ideal controller for those looking at starting their DJ career.
