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

KEY FEATURES OF THE DDJ-SB
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.
