The Full Potential of Serato DJ at your fingertips
Pioneer DJ controllers and the Serato DJ software platform are world renowned, serving as the top choice of professionals around the globe. The new Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 comes with the latest full version of Serato DJ, building on this incredible partnership by bringing you even more control over all of the features. Connect and edit with total hands-on customization using key shift, key sync, and pitch play – three new functions for Serato DJ. Add in the ability to connect to Serato Flip and you’ll be able to record hot cue combinations, skip or repeat sections with ease, make custom edits, and alter the key of your newly created cues. These can be assigned to the DDJ-SZ2’s multi-colored backlit performance pads.
In addition to all of the newest Serato features, you also continue to enjoy the well-known Serato mainstays such as Slip Mode and the 4-deck/sampler functions. SLIP MODE allows the DJ to loop, scratch and hot cue while other tracks continue playing, ready to come back in at exactly the right spot once the jog wheel is released.
All the Inputs for the Modern DJ
The Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 is all about inspiring you - the ambitious DJ who wants to craft on-the-fly remixes and create one-of-a-kind sets. Utilize the DDJ-SZ2’s four channels by connecting up to FOUR devices! You’ll have two dedicated line RCA inputs for CD/Media Players and two more RCA line inputs that can be used for either CD/Media Players or Turntables. Two USB-B sound cards and ports allow two different DJs to connect their laptops and immediately access the DDJ-SZ2 with the top-loaded A/B switch. The Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 makes it easy to transition from one DJ to the next – it’s the perfect controller for keeping the party going well into the night!
Outputs for showing off your sound
The SZ2 has two sets of master outputs – both XLR and RCA – that can run to a PA system and a TRS stereo output that can connect to monitor speakers in the DJ booth. It goes without saying that the DDJ-SZ2 clearly comes from a long line of high-quality Pioneer professional DJ audio circuitry. Two internal 24-bit sound cards and a precision engineered Wolfson DAC provide a signal-to-noise ratio of 111 dB on the Master Output. The resulting clarity and sound speaks for itself.
Low Latency Aluminum JOG Wheels
The full-sized aluminum jogs of the DDJ-SZ2 sport a generous diameter of 202mm. Your performance accuracy increases further when you add in the illuminated cue point markers and bold countdown display. The DDJ-SZ2 is inherently stable and simple to operate - the ON JOG DISPLAY, and JOG FEELING ADJUST work together to simplify the user experience, while making control load adjustment backspin time and scratch performances a breeze. The Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 also enables scratch performances as they were intended thanks to the industry’s fastest JOG response time ever!
Illuminating Performance Pads
The large rubber performance pads of the DDJ-SZ2 control the SAMPLER and HOT CUE functions, and have the ability to apply various actions to the music such as hits, rolls, and volume swells. The pads are also touch-sensitive and can control volume levels depending on how hard they are hit. With just a quick glance, the DJ can use the multicolor LED lights as a marker for the performance status of each pad.
Have Fun With FX!
Creative freedom is the key to a quality performance - that’s why the Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 includes high/mid/low EQ controls on all four channels and high/low-pass EQ filters for the MIC channels and sampler. These top-notch FX can be tweaked with precision via the rotary dial, allowing the new Oscillator and Sound Color FX to really shine through the mix. If you want to add some excitement to your tracks, overlay some of the wicked sounds (NOISE, SIREN, CYMBAL, and HORN) produced by the new Oscillator. It’s as simple as assigning the sounds directly to the output and tweaking their levels. If more shape-shifting and sonic enhancements are needed, dive into the DDJ-SZ2’s Sound Color FX functions (PITCH, JET, ECHO, FILTER). There is even the ability to synchronize ECHO to the music’s BPM by using the information provided by Serato DJ. Various effects can be added to the music simply by turning the knob, opening up the possibility of a diverse range of remixes. It is also possible to synchronize ECHO to the BPM of the music being played by obtaining BPM information from Serato DJ.
