Pioneer DDJ-SX DJ Controller for Serato and Traktor
The Pioneer DDJ-SX is pioneers flagship DJ controller designed specifically for seamless integration with Serato DJ Software. Pioneer have pulled inspiration and design from their legendary CDJ-2000 & DJM-2000 lines, so alongside the library of functions that Serato offers, you'll find familiar ground if your used to the streamlined interface and powerful effects that Pioneer bring to their products. Plus, Pioneer have recently released full support for Native Instruments Traktor with the DDJ-SX, giving you complete versatility over both industry standard programs.
The DDJ-SX has 16, high-quality, velocity sensitive pads to use with the hot cue, roll, slice and sample functions, and with Dual Deck control, two songs per deck can be played at the same time for increased complexity in your mix. All new effects engineered by plug in masters iZotope mean you can add even more expression and creativity to your shows and Slip mode found on the Nexus line lets you scratch and resample in time, every time, dropping you right back into the track.
The unit comes with four individual input terminals that can be connected to external devices such as CD players or analogue 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 any scenario. Additionally, the DDJ-SX can bypass the jog wheels entirely and be used as a standalone mixer for use with external CDJs.
