Pioneer Builds Advanced Dedicated Controller for the New Serato DJ Software

DDJ-SX is the Industry’s First Controller Designed for the Newest Serato DJ Software

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division continues to provide the most innovative DJ products in the industry by offering an advanced performance DJ controller designed specifically for the newly released Serato® DJ Software. Pioneer’s DDJ-SX DJ controller utilizes the Serato software as the basis for its control layout and ergonomic design, taking advantage of the software’s features and integrating special trigger pads and controls. Pioneer has also implemented larger jog wheels for precise mixing and scratching, multiple inputs for expandability, and 4-channel mixing flexibility.

                                                             

“Serato’s newest software lets DJs be more creative with their music, so we’ve built a dedicated controller that enables them to access the software’s features with a precision similar to that in our Pro DJ gear,” said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The DDJ-SX is the first controller in the industry that is designed to take full advantage of Serato DJ’s powerful new capabilities.”

Mixing with Serato
Sold as a complete system that includes the controller and new Serato DJ software, the DDJ-SX provides additional features to provide direct, tactile control of the software’s capabilities, which include a four deck sampler function, dual deck control, slip mode, FX mode and more.

Customized Control Layout Works as Great as it Looks
The DDJ-SX can quickly access the multitude of features Serato DJ offers through its buttons, knobs, sliders and performance pads. Thoughtfully laid out to deliver the best DJ controller experience, its buttons and knobs are designed to match the applicable software functions perfectly:
