Introducing Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 [Video]

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 DDJ-RB Tutorial [Video]

The new Pioneer DDJ-RB is similar to the DDJ-SB2 controller for Serato DJ software, but this time it is totally aimed for use on the Rekordbox DJ software. This means that this is the entry-level DJ controller for Rekordbox but it also has a few new features from its Serato counterpart including separate transport controls that mimic the Play/Pause and Cue buttons on their popular XDJ/CDJ lineup. Check out the quick Pioneer DJ Tutorial Videos after the jump to see the features of the DDJ-RB up close and personal.
