Introducing Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 [Video]

By | 3 weeks ago
Pioneer DJ has just announced a new surprising follow-up controller to their top tier Serato DJ controller called the DDJ-SZ2. We reviewed the original DDJ-SZ a few years ago, but now the new DDJ-SZ2 makes a few improvements including lower jog wheel latency, bundling of Serato PNT/FLIP/Pitch Play, new on-board effects, Magvel Crossfader, post-crossfader effects, and more durability.

I'm pretty surprised that Pioneer DJ decided to update a controller that supports Serato DJ instead of their own Rekordbox software. This means that everyone is back playing nicely with each other and DJ's are almost encouraged to check out all software before making a final decision. Check out the intro video below and stay tuned as we will definitely get one of these in the lab for the full review soon enough!

Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2 Official Introduction

We’ve upgraded our flagship Serato DJ controller to create the DDJ-SZ2. You can use the new 4-channel controller to get hands-on with the latest additions to Serato DJ, including key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip. The multicoloured Performance Pads give you instant feedback on pad modes and playing statuses, and thanks to the improved jog wheel latency, scratching is more responsive and precise than ever.

To help you get the most out of the controller, the DDJ-SZ2 comes bundled with the latest version of Serato DJ. The Pitch ‘n Time DJ and Serato Flip expansion packs are also included so you can use several new features including pitch play and key sync.

The DDJ-SZ2 will be available from mid-December.
