Pioneer’s DDJ-SB 2-channel DJ controller is designed for use with Serato® DJ Intro software. The DDJ-SB features similar operability as Pioneer's extremely popular DDJ-SX and recently announced DDJ-SR. More compact and portable than the other models, the DDJ-SB is designed for the entry-level DJ who wants the same look and fell as the upper models but with more basic operability and at a more affordable price. The DDJ-SB uses the Serato DJ Intro software and incorporates four performance pads, large jog wheels, and a new Filter Fade function that assists users in smoothly blending together tracks of different styles.

Mixing with Serato
Serato DJ Intro
The DDJ-SB is packaged with Serato DJ Intro software and its layout mirrors Serato DJ Intro's interface, so getting hands on with the controller's tactile buttons and dials soon become second nature. Serato DJ Intro provides an out-of-the-box experience with Hot Cue, Auto Loop, 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.
Four rubber “performance pads” enable DJs to trigger Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler, while a further four pads give immediate access to Play, Cue, Sync and Shift functions.
The new Filter Fade function takes mixing with the crossfader beyond simply fading the volume on one channel up and the other down. By hitting the Filter Fade button, DJs can add two high pass filters to the crossfader. This allows both volume and base filter to be manipulated using just one hand. Seamless mixing becomes effortless, and DJs can use their spare hand to unleash their creativity, triggering samples, loops and cues.
For a stylish and sophisticated look and feel, the DDJ-SB sports the same premium look as its big brothers, including large (112mm) aluminum jog plates.
