4-Channel controller for Serato DJ with Performance Pads and Big Jog.

The DDJ-SX is an all-in-one performance controller, with a tactile approach to mixing digital music. This hands-on DJ controller features 2 CDJ-type jog wheels with LCD displays, 16 touch-responsive pads for triggering samples, and an integrated 4-channel mixer with 2 mic inputs, XLR master out, TRS booth out, and a built-in 24-bit soundcard. The DDJ-SX is also completely mapped for control of the included Serato DJ software.

FREE DOWNLOAD OF SERATO DJ
In addition to 4-deck and sampler functions, the latest “Serato DJ”DJ software from Serato also comes with “DUAL DECK CONTROL”, “SLIP MODE”, and FX powered by iZotope to arrange tracks in a wide variety of styles.

Dual-Deck Control
Two tracks played by two decks can be controlled at the same time so that you can perform scratching or set and recall hot cues on the both tracks as if they were performed on a single track.

Slip Mode
DJing function that allows tracks to continue playing in the background while other tracks are looped, scratched or hot cued, without affecting the original track.

New FX powered by iZotope
High quality FX newly developed by iZotope. With the new effects, DJ can apply more creative and more unique arrangement to the music.

LAYOUT EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED FOR SERATO DJ
DDJ-SX with full of features of “Serato DJ” in its exclusively designed layout delivers intuitive and fun DJing. All buttons and knobs of the controller are programmed to the applicable software functions by default so that you can enjoy DJing only by connecting this unit to a computer.

Performance Pads
Large, rubber “PERFORMANCE PADS” on the front of the DDJ-SX are assigned to four functions: hot cue, roll, slicer, and sampler. Tracks can be arranged with a dynamic performance such as tapping and drum rolls, and the volume can be adjusted depending on how strong the pad is tapped. Each Pad has blue illumination built in for the DJ to immediately see the CUE and effect status.

4-Channel Mixer
The DDJ-SX comes with a “4-CHANNEL MIXER” that allows each track played from four decks to be controlled individually. These four tracks can be mixed in a variety of ways for more unique DJing. A master level meter at the center of the mixer and channel level meters on the control interface of each channel allow DJs to instantly identify the sound level of each channel. The mixer can be used with the external input terminal for use as a standalone DJ mixer.

Big Jog
The DDJ-SX has the industry’s shortest control latency, which is the time between touching the jog and sending the signal to the software. The resistance of the knob has been fine-tuned so that “BIG JOG” can be controlled exactly as you intend to. The DDJ-SX also features an “ON JOG DISPLAY” at the center of the jog showing the playback status and position of the current track. This gives the DJ a greater degree of accuracy when scratching tracks.

WIDE RANGE OF I/O CONNECTIONS
The DDJ-SX comes with four individual input terminals that can be connected to external devices such as CD players or analog turn tables. Two individual microphone input terminals, two master output terminals (XLR terminal × 1, RCA terminal × 1), and one booth out terminal provide the DDJ-SX with connectivity in countless scenarios.

      Really suprised and happy over all with this unit, researched alot before pulling the trigger, happy I did. Super sturdy, clean apperance, durable. DJs super cleanly with serato. Used to using 1200, and cdj's. If you really want to scratch stick to turtables though

        Really great controller...others have said that it's too big but all of the features need the space. Otherwise it would be cramped.

        Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX DJ Controller:

        Just got this Great Tool to up my game but still learning it's capabilities. For some reason Serato doesn't read WMA files & unfortunately I have over 200gb of old (quality) music files that now have to be converted to MP3. I also had to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 (or higher) just to operate the mixer. So far its been a "plug n play" but I know there's more for me to learn with this. I'm fairly new to Serato so its taking some getting used to (used Virtual Dj) Right now I'm an overrated Jukebox but with this TOOL, I'm hoping to Up My Game.

          Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX DJ Controller:

          Great controller, links perfected with Serato and also able to use with DJay (Which I occasionally use as well).

          It is well laid out, and the pads are a great addition. There is plenty of input/output connectivity, so you can receive a signal from 2 mics, or 4 audio sources, and route them to many different outputs.

          My one criticism is the mic preamp. The sound is no where near as good as a regular stand-alone mixer (such as a Mackie VLZ or Presonus or Allen and Heath). If I need to do a show with lots of speeches and talking, I will bring along one of those mixers for the mic.

          Overall a great unit, highly recommended.

              I have been DJing for over 36 years. I started using reel to reel to vinyl then CDs to software. I have DJ'd at the top clubs over the years. This controller hands down is the best on the market for the money. A kid could easily make changes to any song like a Pro. The build is high quality as you would expect from Pioneer. It is a little large but its not to tight like my Denon DN MC6000 for mixing on the go. I am so impressed that I will purchase another shortly for my studio.

                  Comments about Pioneer DDJ-SX DJ Controller:

                  This is a really great piece of gear. It seems like Pioneer and Serato thought of nearly everything, and the build quality is something that you'd expect out of either company. I have been resisting the move to controller-based DJing for quite some time in favor of my 1200's/djm800/serato combo, and I'm glad I chose now to switch over -- if I so desired, I could even hook up my 1200's! Really clever features and the software is essentially Scratch Live on a bit of steroids. Well done, Pioneer and Serato!
