The Pioneer DDJ-SB Entry-Level Serato Controller
Take a look for yourself: the Official Pioneer taster video below shows off some of the DDJ-SB's exciting new features.
Features of the DDJ-SB
Those familiar with Pioneer products, will be pleased to know that the DDJ-SB is a similar package to the DDJ-SX/SR . As well as offering software loops, samples, FX and Hot Cues, the DDJ-SB also comes with a free copy of Serato DJ Intro software for home DJs. This music mixing software is a popular choice for new and accomplished DJs and offers all the tips and tricks you'll need to improve your mixing skills.
The DDJ-SB also comes with tactile performance controls, eight performance pads, 2 jog wheels and manual high/low pass filters.
As demonstrated in the video above, the DDJ-SB now comes with a Filter Fade. This new feature allows you the DJ to create slick smooth mixes with seamless transitions between tracks. The addition of the filter fade cuts the time spent on transitions, enabling you to spend more time on being creative behind the decks.
The DDJ-SB has dedicated controls for all the bundled Serato DJ Intro software’s features including loops, four Hot Cues and four samples. Plus the DDJ-SB has two FX units per channel,
with six FX to choose from, the parameters of which can be controlled using one Level/Depth dial.
DJs can also purchase the full version of Serato DJ for intuitive control of even more cue points, samples and loops – plus advanced features including Slip Mode, recording mixes, and FX Powered by iZotope.
Industry first: Filter Fade enables DJs to do more than just mix
Tactile controls add a fun, physical element to performing
The DDJ-SB’s layout mirrors Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ interface, so getting hands on with the controller’s tactile buttons and dials soon becomes second nature. Highlights include: Performance Pads: four rubber pads enable DJs to trigger Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler – while a further four give immediate access to Play, Cue, Sync and Shift functions.
Low-latency jog wheels:
two 112-mm aluminium jog wheels are highly responsive for precision scratching. Manual filters on each channel: independent low/high pass filter dials for each channel are inherited from the premium DDJ-SX and DDJ-SR controllers.
USB powered for ultimate ease of set up
The DDJ-SB is USB powered, so DJs simply connect the controller to their PC or laptop using the provided USB cable – there is no need for additional connections.
