The Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 builds on the strengths of it's acclaimed predecessor and adds the latest additions to Serato DJ including key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip. The jog wheels have also been upgraded so there's even less latency making your scratching unbelievably responsive. Bundled with the latest addition of Serato DJ, Pitch n’ Time and Serato Flip expansion packs, the DDJ-SZ2 is the ultimate controller for professional DJ's.
Upgraded Jog wheels
The twin jog wheels are derived from Pioneer's range-topping CDJ-2000nexus media players. These large controls provide incredibly precise performance with no discernible latency, and can be adjusted, with control load, continuous backspin time and other parameters tweak-able according to taste. These jog-wheels deliver the fastest jog response time of their kind, making them great for club DJs and turntablists alike. At the centre of each is a display, which shows playback position and status.
World-class audio standard
Like other DDJ interfaces, the DDJ-SZ2 is an integrated all-in-one DJ controller, with audio interface built-in. In-fact, it has two premium interfaces built-in, each with a separate USB socket. Each ‘side’ of the controller can be assigned to either sound card. This is to aid easy DJ switchovers. The next DJ simply hooks up his laptop to the available soundcard, and seamlessly mixes into the last track.
The interfaces are pro-quality devices with Wolfson DAC onboard. This results in superb audio reproduction and dynamic range with impressive signal to noise. In addition to operation as a standalone mixer, via the unit’s four external inputs, the onboard interfaces allow the DDJ-SZ2 to integrate with DVS systems, without the need for an additional interface.
Serato DJ included
Providing four virtual decks, sample-triggering, and comprehensive loop and hot hot-cue trigger control via the eight backlit performance pads, plus hands-on control over the software’s iZotope effects (which range from ‘standard’ reverb, echo and modulations, to Oscillator effects which add sounds to the mix according to analyzed BPM and beat grid).
Whether you intend to play seamless, beat-matched sets with creative effects, perform beat-juggling and scratch effects or deliver mind-blowing controllerist mash-ups, Serato DJ has the tools you’ll need, and the DDJ-SZ2 has the perfect controls to use them.
