Full DescriptionView Full Description
The DDJ-SX has been built for professional DJs to withstand the rigours of the booth. The aluminium jog wheel and top plate are stylish and durable. The wealth of connectivity options provide multiple options to the DJ including using the unit as a four channel standalone mixer allowing connection to CDJs or turntables for even more performance options. Two master outputs (XLR and RCA) and a booth output enable connections direct to professional PA equipment whilst two mic inputs open up possibilities for MCing and announcements. The controller inherits its high-quality audio circuitry from Pioneer's pro-DJ equipment. A built-in 24-bit soundcard, low-jitter clock and high-performance DAC ensure a clean, powerful sound with no degradation.
Tight integration with Serato DJ
The DDJ-SX has been designed in partnership with Serato to deliver intuitive, plug-and-play control of the software's exciting features. Developed specifically for Serato DJ, the DDJ-SX controls are tightly integrated with the software features giving you the best hands on control over your performance. Serato DJ combines the popular features of Serato ITCH and Serato Scratch Live, and adds new features that will be popular with lovers of both.
Performance Pad Section
The DDJ-SX sees the debut of eight LED illuminated velocity sensitive, Performance Pads to control Cue Points, Loop Rolls, Slicer and the SP-6.
You can enter Velocity Mode to trigger the SP-6 Sample Player slots. The harder or softer you hit the performance pads, the louder or quieter the sample sound giving extremely natural and intuitive control and putting the DJ back into the heart of the live performance.
Dual Deck Mode
Developed specifically for the DDJ-SX, this allows you to link two software deck layers and manipulate them as one, so scratching on Deck A can be simultaneously applied to Deck C. Or go crazy and layer sounds!
Trustworthy Pioneer touch sensitive platters with platter illumination and a jog wheel display allow for tight control of the virtual decks in Serato DJ.
Keep everything in time and within the groove. Turn on this mode and trigger cue points, loops or scratch. Once you are done, the track will go back to the position it would have been had you done nothing. The new FX Mode also enables effects to be applied to two decks at once.
Hardware FX Controls
Dedicated hardware controls for the brand new FX engine Powered by iZotope in Serato DJ. It features ten high-quality sound effects including reverb, echo and ping pong delay.
Chop sections of your tracks up and re-arrange on the fly. The Slicer cuts a section of your track into 8 pieces, which can be triggered creatively with the 8 performance pads.
Dedicated HP/LP Channel Filters
A dedicated High Pass / Low Pass filter per channel gives you more control to create smooth blends, sweeps and interesting sounds. This works with the software and external sources with a hardware filter built-in.
Channel Fader Start
Start playback of your tracks by opening the channel fader.
Improved Pioneer Jog Wheel
The DDJ-SX has the industry's lowest latency jog wheel which has been fine tuned to give professional DJs the level of performance they have come to expect from Pioneer.
