Pioneer DJ has upgraded its flagship Serato DJ controller to create the DDJ-SZ2. This new four-channel controller gives hands-on control of the latest additions to Serato DJ, including key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip.
Pioneer DJ says that improved jogwheel latency makes scratching more responsive and precise than ever, and is bundling the DDJ-SZ2 with the latest version of Serato DJ including the Pitch ‘n Time DJ and Serato Flip expansion packs, allowing use of all the new features out of the box.
Additionally, Pioneer DJ is putting a voucher for a free Serato Video expansion pack in the boxes of the first 3,000 DDJ-SZ2 controllers, for full control of audio and video performances.
More about the controller
The DDJ-SZ2 is the best Serato DJ controller Pioneer makes, offering mirrored CDJ-style set-up, dual USB ports for smooth DJ changeovers, and Magvel crossfader. The fact that the company has upgraded the controller indicates continued support for Serato DJ software, something many doubted would happen due to Pioneer DJ now having its own software platform, rekordbox DJ.
• The DDJ-SZ2 is available now at an SRP of €2,099 including VAT.
