Pioneer DDJ-SR Serato DJ Controller Unboxing & First Impressions [Video]

The Pioneer DDJ-SR is essentially a trimmed down two-deck version of the DDJ-SX which controls four decks of Serato DJ. The new DDJ-SR has a smaller footprint than the DDJ-SX and adds a new PAD PLUS button that gives the 16-performance pads even more functions than before. Even though only two channels are present, the controller is layered so four decks of software control is still possible. The full video and written reviews are on the way, but peep our unboxing video to see the DDJ-SR fresh out of the box.

to get familiar with most of the functions found on this new DDJ-SR. The DDJ-SR still has the same overall build quality with a steel top faceplate, aluminum jog wheels, and plastic construction underneath. The DDJ-SR also has the performance pads to control Hotcues, Roll, Slicer, and Sampler, but now they also have a PAD PLUS button that will allow the pads to function as Hotcue Roll, Trans, Combo FX, and Sampler Roll. The DDJ-SR doesn't have the additional channelized inputs found on the DDJ-SX, but it includes an Auxiliary RCA input for emergencies along with a Booth RCA output and Main balanced TRS output to connect the speakers. Stay tuned for the review!
