The DDJ-SB offers the kind of advanced functions your expect from Pioneer including Performance Pads and the new Filter Fade.

  • Dynamic and Intuitive DJ Play – The DDJ-SB is designed as an all-in-one system utilizing a 2-channel mixer and two decks that each feature a large jog wheel for great control while mixing and scratching. Each jog wheel’s resistance was fine-tuned to provide users with the best “feel” and the shortest latency. Four large rubber “performance pads” are found under each jog wheel to provide HOT CUE, AUTO LOOP, MANUAL LOOP, and SAMPLER functions, while a second row of rubberized pads offers the basic DJ functions, Play, Cue, Sync and Shift.

  • New Filter Fade Function – For extremely smooth blending transitions when using the cross-fader, a new “Filter Fade” function can be turned on (via a button in the center of the mixer) even with music that has vastly different styles. The high-pass filter of the left and right decks is linked with the actions of the cross-fader, and the deck’s volume output automatically adjusts while applying the bass filter, resulting in natural sounding mix effects.

  • Serato DJ Intro Software – The controller is packaged with Serato DJ Intro software to provide basic DJ functionalities. An out-of-the-box experience with the software includes HOT CUE, SAMPLER and other cool effects. For expanded functionalities and effects, the controller can be used with Serato DJ (optional, paid software) offering users the ability to arrange tracks using Slip Mode, access various effect functions available from iZotope®, and record tracks with DJ mixes using the record function.

  • Professional Design – For a stylish and sophisticated look and feel, the DDJ-SB sports the same premium look as its big brothers, including large aluminum jog plates.

Additional Features
  • USB Power – The controller can be powered using a USB connection from a laptop1.
  • Built-in Sound Card (audio interface) – Simple connection to a laptop with a single USB cable.
  • Integrated Handles – For added convenience and portability, the DDJ-SB features grip handles on each side of the controller.

          Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SB 2-Channel Serato DJ Controller:

          If you can't trust the name Pioneer, who's can you trust? Pioneer made one of the best controllers for under $300. And it includes Serato Intro! If you have ever wanted to Dj a party or make a great mash up, this is for you. The wheels are a good size and feel to give you an idea what to expect when you move up in the world. The pads are used to cue your tracks and to loop them. It is USB powered so you can easily pack it up and head from party to party making jams for everyone to get down to.

          Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SB 2-Channel Serato DJ Controller:

          Pioneer's new DDJ series is coming in strong with its multiple options to pick up, and this one is the perfect gateway to use to get into DJ'n! A big thing people don't know about when buying a dj controller is that its not 100% about the hardware you start with, its the software. And Serato is one of the best!

          The DDJSB is self powered through USB and comes with a free version of Serato Intro to get started! Just import your music library and get to mixing! You have 4 pads to cue up your tracks and even auto loop. Along with that you have 3 effects per-deck so you can further customize your live mix and show the crowd a little more or what you can do.

          This controller supports 2 channels at once, which may be a downside to more experienced DJ's but this is an entry level piece! I'd recommend checking out the DDJSX if you need more features and 4 channels for that pro-level mixing!

                So this Pioneer controller is excellent for those who want to get into mixing/DJing, but don't know where to start. The simple 2 channel mixers allow beginners to master the art of mixing on the fly, in addition to the easy to use software the comes with it. The price is also great too! If you're an aspiring DJ looking to hone your chops, this is the right controller for you!

                The name of Pioneer says it all!! Great product without the hefty $$ tag! We are a multi-op company performing up to 5 events / weddings in an evening. It is nice to have this as a back-up mixer we can use for anything (additional set-up, ceremony, etc). It has only 2 channels but offers a lot more with cool functions, effects, and extra add-ons that you will discover the more you use it. If you are just starting out, this is a perfect entry level mixer to use without spending over $300 for it!! Great job Pioneer!!

                  Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SB 2-Channel Serato DJ Controller:

                  This has to be the best compact DJ controller I have used. It is the intro model in the Pioneer DDJ S family, and it definitely lives up to its name. The jog wheels feel good and all of the controls are very well laid out. The sound card provides excellent quality at home or at an event. For mobile DJs, the compact size makes this an excellent choice for portability.
