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.

      The 2 channels are perfect for scratching. Built in sound card, and comes with hot cue, auto loop and samplers. USB bus powered, so you dont have to worry about extra power supplies and it comes with Serato Dj Intro. Open the box, plug in and start DJ'ing. Great value.

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

      If you are a beginner DJ looking for an inexpensive & reliable controller, look no further! The Pioneer DDJ-SB has many features of its bigger brothers the SR & SX, but it a smaller and lightweight package. The sound quality and software included are superior to others on the market, and will keep you coming back to Pioneer for all of your DJ needs.

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

      The DDJSB is pioneers solution for the DJ with alot of gigs and too much to carry. Without compromising functionality and flexability, it gives you everything you need without having to break your back going from place to place. Although it only gives rca outputs, the controlling aspect is on point and the mixer still gives you everything you need as far as eq and filtering. Paired with serato, it gives a dj, beginner or pro, everthing needed to rock a party without breaking the bank.

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

            I like to mix music for my friends at home on the weekends so I didn't need something too complicated. Being new to mixing myself, one of my fellow coworkers recommended this piece to me to get me started. I didn't feel like spending a fortune because I am new to DJing... this was a cinderella piece! (a perfect fit!)

            The free Serato software was a bonus and every DJ I know mixes on Pioneer products so I knew I was going to be safe and get a quality product. Highly recommended for beginner DJs. Its nice a portable if you're a DJ on the move. Pioneer makes a large line of products if this unit is too simple for you. Give this thing and spin and see for yourself!

                    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!
