Pioneer DJ Announces DDJ-SZ2 Serato DJ Controller

Pioneer DJ has announced a new version of their Serato DJ controller, the DDJ-SZ2. The DDJ-SZ2 has been built on the strong foundations of its predecessor, the company’s flagship DDJ-SZ controller. The upgrade allows the user to get hands on experience with the latest additions to Serato DJ that includes key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip. With improved jog wheel latency it makes scratching more responsive and precise and the multi-coloured performance pads gives the user an instant feedback on playing status and pad modes.

The user can play with the keys and pitch, adjusting them while mixing with three new Serato DJ functions embedded in the controller. Key shift, key sync and pitch play gives the power to play it by ear.

PLAY WITH PITCH Pitch Play grant the users the freedom to hit their cues across a range of different keys. They can use the performance pads to assign their hot cues and broaden the scope of their creativity at the touch of a button.

SERATO FLIP CONNECTION The users can record Hot Cue combinations with three dedicated buttons, enabling them to play back their tracks, make custom edits or even skip or repeat selected sections on loop.

PROFESSIONAL OSCILLATOR The users can create a more versatile sound by turning the knob to overlay their track with Noise, Drop, Laser or Siren. They can modulate using the dial to add texture as well as tension to the tracks.

LARGE ALUMINIUM JOGS The DDJ-SZ2’s full-sized jog wheels are optimised for a good scratch response and can use Jog Feeling Adjust to set the preferred resistance. The jogs have illuminated cue point markers and an accurate countdown for even greater precision.

BACKLIT PERFORMANCE PADS Instantly trigger Hot Cues, Roll, Slicer, Sampler, Cue Loop, Saved Loop, Slicer Loop and Pitch Play. The multi-coloured backlit LEDs give a visual reference to which modes are in play and will reflect cue points the user has pre-set in Serato DJ.

The DDJ-SZ2 comes bundled with the latest version of Serato DJ. The Pitch n’ Time and Serato Flip expansion packs are also included so that the user can use the new features straight out the box.
