Pioneer DJ has recently released a brand new entry-level Digital DJ controller for their Serato DJ lineup called the DDJ-SB. This new compact and USB-Powered controller has the familiar 16 Performance Pad layout, Slip-Mode, built-in Low Pass/High Pass filter knobs, and comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro for the excellent street price of only $300.
The new Pioneer DDJ-SB is a good addition to the more powerful DDJ-SZ, DDJ-SX, and DDJ-SR while still maintaining lots of the features and functions that are found on the pricier models. The DDJ-SB has a new Filter Fade mode button that allows DJ's to crossfade the music while implementing a High-Pass filter simultaneously. The DDJ-SB still has the familiar aluminum top jog wheels, hot cues, loop controls, effects, and sample controls right where they are expected. The Pioneer DDJ-SB will come bundled with Serato DJ Intro instead of the full out Serato DJ software which definitely helps on the price and the ease of use for beginners. The full written and video reviews are on the way, but be sure to check out our unboxing and first impressions video above to see all that comes in the box.
