Pioneer DDJ-SB / DDJ-SB2 Product Description

Pioneer DDJ-SB Entry Level Serato DJ Controller

Pioneer’s DDJ-SB is the compact controller, perfect for the entry level DJ seeking a simple yet high-end piece of kit at an affordable price.

Despite its compact nature the Pioneer DDJ-SB retains a classic and slick design and is fitted with a pair of premium 112mm aluminium jog plates, creating a professional, exclusive look.
Pioneer have packaged the DDJ-SB with Serato DJ Intro’s interface, making it easy for you to quickly grow comfortable with the Serato DJ Intro controllers. And if this was not enough, the Pioneer DDJ-SB can also be used with the Serato DJ upgrade, which will enhance your use and performance of the controller.
The compact and professional design alongside the Serato DJ software will enable you to juggle beats at a higher level and with increased ease.

Pioneer have also fitted the DDJ-SB with eight performance pads which will allow you to trigger Hot Cue, Manual Loop, Auto Loop and Sampler alongside Cue, Play, Shift and Sync functions. In doing so Pioneer’s DDJ-SB allows you to mix in exciting new ways: to the best of your abilities, no distractions.

What truly differentiates the Pioneer DDJ-SB from similar models is the Filter Fade function, a step up from the standard cross fader that will set your mixes above that of the rest. The Filter Fade Function will give your sets the professional edge by manipulating both volume and base filter, creating an incredibly seamless and slick mix that would otherwise require two hands.
Not only does this create a sound so much smoother, the Filter Fade function also provides you with the freedom to create more with your free hand and the eight performance pads at your disposal!

DJkit consider the Pioneer DDJ-SB controller to be the must-have piece of compact, feature packed gear for the in-the-know entry level DJ.

The Pioneer DDJ-SB is now replaced with the new improved Pioneer DDJ-SB2

Pioneer DDJ-SB / DDJ-SB2 Bundles


Technical Specs

1. Designed for intuitive plug-and-play control of Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ
The DDJ-SB has dedicated controls for all the bundled Serato DJ Intro software’s features including loops, four Hot Cues and four samples. Plus the DDJ-SB has two FX units per channel, with six FX to choose from, the parameters of which can be controlled using one Level/Depth dial.
DJs can also purchase the full version of Serato DJ for intuitive control of even more cue points, samples and loops – plus advanced features including Slip Mode, recording mixes, and FX Powered by iZotope.
2. Industry first: Filter Fade enables DJs to do more than just mix
The new Filter Fade function takes mixing with the crossfader beyond simply fading the volume of one channel up and the other down. By hitting the Filter Fade button, DJs can add two high pass filters to the crossfader – so both volume and base filter can be manipulated using just one hand. Seamless mixing becomes effortless, and DJs can use their spare hand to unleash their creativity, triggering samples, loops and cues.
3. Tactile controls add a fun, physical element to performing
The DDJ-SB’s layout mirrors Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ interface, so getting hands on with the controller’s tactile buttons and dials soon becomes second nature. Highlights include:
Performance Pads: four rubber pads enable DJs to trigger Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler – while a further four give immediate access to Play, Cue, Sync and Shift functions.
Low-latency jog wheels: two 112-mm aluminium jog wheels are highly responsive for precision scratching.
Manual filters on each channel: independent low/high pass filter dials for each channel are inherited from the premium DDJ-SX and DDJ-SR controllers.
4. USB powered for ultimate ease of set up
The DDJ-SB is USB powered, so DJs simply connect the controller to their PC or laptop using the provided USB cable – there is no need for additional connections.
5. Professional design and build in keeping with Pioneer pro-DJ products
The latest in Pioneer’s range of professional controllers for Serato DJ, the DDJ-SB is constructed from premium materials and audio circuitry. The robust build ensures durability, while the distinctive styling and aluminium jog wheel deliver a professional feel.

very impressed
i'm a club dj and bought this to record some mixes at home, i'm amazed by the quality for the price, and highly recommend it. i also purchased the serato dj upgrade. The intro version that came with the controller is fine, but the full version is needed if you wanna record (plus you get more functionality with the full version).

Christmas present for my son
We bought the Pioneer as a christmas present for my son who is 10, loves tech and has recently got into music. He'd played a little with some friends decks and controllers that where all pretty high end so we wanted something cheap but that still had plenty of features so he wouldn't be disappointed. This hit the spot and he has hardly left it alone since Christmas. The experience as a whole was fantastic, prompt shipping, great support even when you are asking stupid questions. I had bought the upgrade to Dj from Intro but couldn't find the code to upgrade the software. djkit.com where prompt and frindly with there response that it was on the invoices second page that I hadn't check doh. The controller is of very high quality and feels premium the layout is really friendly and it's light enough to carry about the house. Serato have some great intro features to get you going with the software and the controller and once you upgrade there is even more to play with, better effects more control over queues etc. Brilliant entry level controller and software that is simple enough for anybody to play with even if you have no DJ knowledge, lots of features and quality interface to have everybody smashing the choons out.

This controller is everything you'll need
I have never had any experience DJ-ing and didnt understand anything with regards to controllers and what you need. This is perfect for a beginner to learn on, but also any intermediate users. The quality is really high and it has all the functions you need to, with the only very small down side is that it doesn't come with samples. The Serato intro software is easy to use, and after a couple of youtube videos you can easily pick up the basics of how to mix tracks using the pioneer controller. I would highly recommend to anyone because of the great quality. The customer service by DJ-Kit was excellent as well, I spoke to them on the phone and they were very helpful and the parcel arrived the next day by courier.

Amazing piece of Kit for Beginner DJ's
The DDJ-SB is a very well designed controller with all the features a DJ would need. It's brilliant for mixing tracks and is equipped with a brand new feature called Filter Fade which allows you to seamlessly mix into the next track and is very effective at doing so. I would recommend this controller to any DJ who is looking for a new, cheap but superb controller. Joe

Came with all the software and does everything I need as a first controller. Delivery was surprisingly fast too, only downside was I needed to buy a cable to link it to my speakers but that was only a few quid so no biggie.

Excellent bit of equipment!
Very impressed with this product overall! The unit itself is of a high build quality, with the faders/knobs feeling solid, not cheap. I would highly recommend buying the full version of Serato DJ, as the features it unlocks are well worth the money. Very portable and easy to set up. Perfect for beginners, or someone on a budget that wants to buy from a reputable brand.

1st controller.. great product .. dont hesitate
Just wanted to say a few words about the SB, its a great product, do not hesitate to get one, I have been DJing for 30 years with 1210's and CDJS so this was pretty much my 1st full on digital Dj purchase, I am so pleased I did, in the past I have always gone with Numark for the value for money and nearly went for the Mixtrack pro II, I am glad I have spent the extra for the pioneer, its so well made, and with the Full Serato DJ upgrade, its basically everything I have always wanted, there is so much you can do with it and found the software very user friendly. I have to mention also that I received a great service from djkit.com from start to finish and would recommend them to you.

Simple, smooth & easy.
This is a fantastic product, especially for the price, it has it's similarities with the Numark Mixtrack Pro 2, but this does beat it for the fact that its easy to use with Serato. Would definietely recommend this to anyone, just as a mess about, starting to DJ or switching from Numark!

Fantastic Controller
Great DJ controller for beginners and pros alike. I'd strongly recommend purchasing the full Serato software with this controller - you get a lot more features and it gives you the ability to record your mixes. The size, weight and build quality of the DDJ-SB is fantastic. 10/10, well done Pioneer.

no more can be said really it all turned up on time in full working order. due to disability i only will go on when im able which will be occasional, but will help me get back into doing the things i love. Had the numark mixtrack pro (1) and that was great but so far the Pioneer is awesome too. Would love the higher end products but in my budget this is more than adequate. Thank you

Great for the price although it requires the purchase of Serato DJ to access all features.
I bought this mainly for practice and the road. It is well constructed although plasticy. The platters feel nice and have a nice smooth movement. The pads are limiting as the bottom four pads are limited to the basic controls. The FX section feels empty but I am putting that down to Pioneer not wanting it to be "too good" of an option compared to the higher end DDJ products and the same goes for the lack of Serato as well. As I said in the title, to enable all of the features you need to have the full version of Serato DJ which is annoying, but not the end of the world as it is perfectly mappable to pretty much any other DJ software. Just ignore the Serato branding I guess. It does what it does well and I am very pleased with both the product and djkit.com.com's service. I ordered it yesterday at 4pm and received it by courier at 11 the next morning. Very impressed.

I have had both the Pioneer and the Numarks in this class, and the Pioneer outperforms it for me. The Pioneers controls feel robust and sturdy whereas the Numarks felt cheap and plastic like. I would recommend this over the Numark Mixtracks any day. Bargain price as well.
