Designed from the ground up for the serious DJ professional, Pioneer’s flagship DDJ-SZ Controller is a complete game-changer and is set-up for the most intuitive, physical scratch performances yet.

The flagship Pioneer DDJ-SZ is a Searto software compatible controller that offers all the conveniences of an all-in-one system and features more functions than ever; like extra-large jog wheels, velocity-sensitive, multi-colored Performance Pads , a DJM style mixer, dual USB ports, integrated 44.1kHz/24bit sound cards and a MAGVEL cross fader.

Big Wheels Keep On Turning
Perhaps the most obvious CDJ PRO gear integration to the DDJ-SZ is its large 8.1-inch JOG wheels. Not only are these easy to work, they feature effortlessly smooth operation and instantaneous response time, and that all translates into complete precision and accurate control for dependable, smooth scratching and mixing performances, every time.

Also, centrally located in the middle of the wheel is the “ON JOG” display that highlights playback status, cue points and position, while the “Jog Feeling Adjust” will fine-tune the tension resistance to personal preference for more accurate backspins and brake effects.

Pound Those Pads
The DDJ-SZ is equipped with large, velocity-sensitive, LED- illuminated Performance Pads that are easy to locate in low-light environments and also displays a visual reference to which modes are in play, and reflect the cue points that you have pre-set in Serato DJ.

Professional manipulation effects
Create numerous effects thanks to High Quality FX such as popular Sound Colour FX (Pitch, Echo, Jet and Filter) and the new Oscillator which adds Noise, Siren, Cymbal and Horn samples.

High-End Mixer
Emulating the Pioneer’s DJM series of professional mixers, mixing area of the DDJ-SZ also closely mimics utilizing a generous number of controls and effects with features including Sound Color FX and new Oscillator functions to deliver more creative music arrangements. The mixer can also be used as a standalone 4-channel mixer for outboard players and turntables.

Magvel Cross Fader
For extremely smooth transitions and high durability between the DDJ-SZ’s players, the unit features a MAGVEL cross fader (the same component used in Pioneer’s DJM-900SRT) that utilizes a silent, contact-free magnetic system that can withstand more than 10 million operations. The “cut in” time of the cross fader can also be customized to the user’s preference.

Dual USB Ports
The DDJ-SZ includes two USB ports to enable simultaneous connection of two computers. Users can instantly switch between two computers for seamless transitions between two DJs or as additional music sources.

Features:
  • Serato DJ Software – Bundled with the DDJ-SZ for an easy out-of-the-box experience.
  • 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.
  • Needle Search – Users can immediately jump to a specific part of a music track with a simple touch of the Needle Search pad.
  • High Quality Audio – A low-jitter clock and high-performance digital-to-analog converter (DAC) are used for accurate audio playback. In addition to a 24-bit digital signal processor to minimize digital noise, its balanced hybrid operational amplifier and balance output circuit also reduce analog circuit noise.
  • Built-in Sound Card (audio interface)
  • P-LOCK Fader Cap – Prevents the fader knob from slipping off during extreme use.
  • Auto Standby – Automatically switches to standby mode when no activity or input is detected for a period of time.

      Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SZ Professional DJ Controller:

      I have always been a big fan of Pioneer equipment, but, the DDJ-SZ is on of the best, if not the best all in one controller on the market. The SZ work seamlessly with it's version of Serato and you barely have to touch the computer to operate it making the SZ a lot of fun to use. Very accurate and responsive 8.1" jog wheels with the Pioneer "ON JOG display" which feeds you valuable information about playback cues, and position. I could write a three page paper about all the awesome features included with the DDJ-SZ. Highly recommended, buy one and you will not be disappointed. 5.5 stars!

      Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SZ Professional DJ Controller:

      Very rarely do digital turntables feel like a Technics SL1200. While not 100% on point in comparison, it is a strong 95% with far more versatility and of course you don't need stacks of milkcrates to use. Buy this if your a pro or on your way.

                      This is the top of the line for Pioneer's DJ controllers. Being the largest controller that Pioneer makes, it comes with big jog wheels that come with adjustability so that the user can change the resistance from light to heavy. Performance pads with cue, roll, slicer and samplers. An awesome 4 channel mixer. Effects and more. Great investment for the gigging DJ.

                        Just like when DJing shifted from vinyl to CD players, this is the next step. Any self respecting DJ these days is using a laptop and a controller, and this is the best one, especially if you're used to using 2 IDJs.
