The DDJ-SX2 is the industry’s first controller 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 is the only controller with designated buttons – Record, Start, and Slot – to put intuitive Serato Flip performances at their 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.

AT A GLANCE:
  • 4-Channel Performance DJ Controller Designed for Serato DJ
  • Dedicated buttons for Serato FLIP
  • Updated Jog Wheel with "Hot Cue Countdown"
  • Multi-Colored, Velocity Sensitive Performance Pads
  • Serato DVS Upgrade Ready
  • Includes Serato DJ

Serato Flip
Serato Flip is a new function in Serato DJ that lets DJs record hot cue combinations and replay them on a loop. DJs can record themselves triggering cues using the Performance Pads and automatically loop the sequence back on demand. Up to six recordings (slots) of Hot Cue sequences can be made for playback at a later time. Pioneer added Record (start/stop recording), Start (start/stop loop), and Slot (store) buttons to quickly access the Serato Flip operation.

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.

  • High Quality Audio – A low-jitter clock and high-performance digital-to-analog converter (DAC) provide accurate and clear audio playback
  • 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
  • Aluminum Finish – The DDJ-SX2 sports an aluminum top panel and a brushed aluminum finish on the JOG wheels for optimal look and feel
  • Multiple Connection Options – The DDJ-SX2 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
  • 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 – Suits any type of mixing style
  • Channel Fader Start – Enables use of the channel fader to control and play/cue tracks.
  • Assignable Settings – Pioneer offers a TSI file for use with the Native Instruments TRAKTOR PRO2 soft

      One of the best options for a professional DJ set up. This board not only has a great feel to it, but also all the features you could ask for. Overall if you need a professional board with 4 channels, this is a great option.

              The Pioneer DDJ-SX2 Performance DJ Controller has created the first controller that natively supports the Serato Flip controls inside the Serato DJ software. This controller has two of the top features from the DDJ-SZ line. It has performance pads with velocity control and on-jog digital cue point markers. This is the professional choice for DJ controllers. You will love it. This is a real hands-on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Phoenix.

                Great controller for immediate recording of tracks and then using them while in sequence. I also enjoyed the very sensitive control pads. A great controller for anyone looking to perform or record professionally. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

It has dedicated controls for Serato Flip, which lets you record and replay cues on the fly! Pioneer knows what they are doing when they make a controller. It is kind of a combo of the SX and the SZ.
