Pioneer DJ has announced that there is a brand new Serato DJ controller coming out next month called the Pioneer DDJ-SX2. The DDJ-SX2 is a new version of the ever-popular

Pioneer DDJ-SX

which we reviewed when it was released almost two years ago. The new Pioneer DDJ-SX2 inherits all of the features of the original and adds multi-color RGB backlit Performance pads, hotcue markers on the jog wheel display, Serato Flip controls, and it is Serato DJ DVS compatible right out of the box.

The original DDJ-SX was a great controller that was also the first controller to work with Serato DJ. The new DDJ-SX2 plans to expand on the original by adding the new functions to the unit that the new versions of Serato DJ already have available in the software. The RGB backlit performance pads makes it easier for DJ's to know what is stored on the pad at a glance. The Hot Cue markers on the jog wheel display are going to be a major help to those who are going to use lots of hotcues or for those who are going to be using the new Serato Flip feature where multiple hotcues can be triggered in sequence and in loops. The Serato Flip feature also gets a record and play/pause button so that users can perform and recall their performance on the fly. The Serato DJ DVS compatibility is another strong feature add where users can easily connect timecode CD decks or turntables and digitally control their music without the need for an additional soundcard.

The first 10,000 Pioneer DDJ-SX2's that are sold will include a Serato Flip voucher and the Serato Video voucher for free. The DDJ-SX2 will cost around $999 when it's released in October. I'm pretty sure that the

Pioneer DDJ-SX2

will be on hand at next week's Atlantic City DJ Expo where we'll be bringing you all of the goodness right from the showroom floor, so keep it locked.

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.

Pioneer Announces DDJ-SX for Serato DJ

Serato DJ software was just announced today and with it came the announcement of its newest and first official DJ controller called the Pioneer DDJ-SX. The new Pioneer DDJ-SX looks to be one of the most professional-grade DJ controllers from Pioneer to-date with a brushed metal chassis and heavy duty appearance. The DDJ-SX will be very tightly integrated with the Serato DJ software and below each jog wheel there are (8) velocity-sensitive performance pads that can be used for Cue-points, Loop Rolls, Slicer, and the SP-6, similar to the way Vestax VCI-380 does it today with Serato ITCH.
