Unleash the power of Serato Flip within Serato DJ with the Pioneer DDJ-SX2; the industry’s first DJ controller dedicated to do just that!

As an expansion pack to Serato DJ, Serato Flip lets DJs record and re-play hot cue sequences on the fly. And the DDJ-SX2 is the only controller with designated hardware buttons – Record, Start, and Slot – to put intuitive Serato Flip performances right at your fingertips, precisely where it belongs, so you can keep the vibe flowing all night long and stay in tune with the crowd (and not tune them out by having to navigate through  pesky, tedious submenus. Sweet).

But wait – it gets better…

In a nod to its esteemed heritage, the DDJ-SX2 builds upon the solid foundation of Pioneer’s DDJ-SZ, by incorporating several “must-have” features from its well respected lineage: four input channels, velocity-sensitive Performance Pads, 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

Flip with Serato Flip
With Serato Flip, record hot cue combinations and replay them on a loop. Plus, you can record a trigger cue and then playback the loop at the perfect time – every time. Or you can even trigger cues via the Performance Pads and auto-loop the sequence as you see fit;  a total of six slots of Hot Cues can be loaded up for playback at any time, allowing you the flexibility and creativity to impose any mood on the fly.

About The Layout
If you’re at all familiar with the layout of say the DDJ-SX, you’ll feel right at home with the feel, form and functionality of the DDJ-SX2. The layout of the buttons, knobs, sliders and Performance Pads deliver a DJ controller experience designed to match the applicable software functions.

Multi-colored Performance Pads
The DDJ-SZ features illuminated, multi-functional, multi-colored Performance Pads that offers total control of EIGHT Serato DJ functions. The visual feedback provided by the pads serve as alerts to various states of action and commands for such functions as drum rolls and beats. In addition, Hot Cue, Roll, Slicer, and Sampler functions are conveniently located directly below the jog wheel for instant use during playback.

Amplified MIC Input
Achieve clear audio output with no distortion regardless of the type or brand of microphone used courtesy of its updated balanced microphone (MIC) input circuit; a step up from the first-gen previously provided. 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.

Expanded Functionality
With four external inputs, you can  connect CD players, analog turntables, microphones and more, all without the need to connect to a PC/MAC, if you so desire.  This standalone controller also offers dual Master Outputs along with a single Booth Out for connection to external public address (PA) equipment. 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.

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.

Other Features:
  • 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
  • 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
  • Built-in Sound Card (audio interface)

    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.

                  The Pioneer DDJ-SX2 Performance DJ Controller is a very cool DJ controller with some awesome new features for Serato Flip! 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.
