We've been waiting for one of these to come through ever since they have been released and now its finally here. We'll cover all of the features in the new DDJ-SX hardware as well as the new features and improvements found in the new Serato DJ Software. The unit just arrived yesterday, so the review is a couple of weeks away. For now, we'll take a quick look at the DDJ-SX in our Unboxing and First Impressions Video to see what you get in the package...
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.

Our good friends over at Pioneer DJ spent some time with DJ Blakey in late 2012 in order to get him familiar with the Pioneer DDJ-SX when it was originally announced. The Pioneer DDJ-SX is still one of the best DJ controllers out on the market today for the full Serato DJ software and there is also a new mapping to use the controller with Traktor Pro 2.

[Video] Pioneer DDJ-S1 Now With Serato DJ!
The Pioneer DDJ-S1 was released back in 2011 and was designed to work with perfectly Serato Itch. We reviewed the controller and found it to be a great DJ control surface for Serato software DJ's. Now that Serato Itch software has been replaced by Serato DJ with a better layout and new features, the DDJ-S1 owners can now reap the benefits by downloading the new firmware and Free Serato DJ upgrade to get the full use out of their controller. Check out the full press release, download links, our video review, and the new Serato DJ/DDJ-S1 performance video after the jump.
