Pioneer DJ has just announced that they will be releasing a new intermediate-level Digital DJ controller for their Serato lineup called the DDJ-SB. This new compact and USB-Powered controller has the familiar 16 Performance Pads, Slip-Mode, built-in Low Pass/High Pass filter knobs, and comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro for the excellent price of only $300.
The new Pioneer DDJ-SB is a good addition to the more powerful 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 DDJ-SB will be released in January 2014 for $300 at retail. We'll be sure to get one in the lab for the full review treatment. Check out the
