Do you own the Pioneer DDJ-SZ? Why not write a review based on your experience with it.
Pioneer have thought of everything when it comes to this controller. Works like a treat. My only negative view on the unit is the software effects aren't post fader but you can't have everything.
I went from 2 CDJ-900 and a DJM S9 to this controller and it feels like a huge upgrade. I love being able to mix 4 tunes at the same time with it, or having one specifically dedicated to scratching. I miss the echo effect and switches from the S9 but there is so much more to do with the SZ that it's not really a problem. I have had a few issues connecting it, but only after updating windows or needing to update windows, re-installing the drivers has fixed it every time though. I blame windows
I'll try and be detailed with this controller. there really is too much to talk about. from the looks and lights of the buttons right down to the inputs and sound quality, this controller is absolutely perfect. i upgraded to this controller as i wanted the best, i wanted to have more functions on one unit than i knew what to do with. i love every single detail of this controller, everything is laid out nicely and i never find myself accidentally knocking a fader or brushing the jog wheel. on the subject of the jog wheels, they are better than 2000s in my opinion. i don't know why, they just are. i'm mainly a mix dj and my brother in law is a scratch dj, the jogs deliver in both scenarios. the touch sensitive plate on them really give you a responsive scratch from the second you touch it. the display in the middle is helpful to help you avoid looking at your computer when beat juggling etc. the beat pads (as well as literally EVERYTHING else) on this controller are bigger than on the sx and are very comfortable to use in all modes. the pitch fader is also a god send compared to smaller controllers. as for the mixer section, the faders feel sturdy and great to use, especially the Xfader. it has four samples and 4 effects built in with individual channel filters and a dedicated sampler and mic channel. the master volume is controlled by a knob in the corner out of the way rather than on a fader in amongst the others (which i hate) and the led output levels on each channel (including the master). the controller has 2 soundcards for switching DJs seamlessly from computer to computer or just using 2 computers simultaneously. it has both an rca and xlr master oututs, as well as a booth output through 1/4" jack. the 4 channels are rca and can be switched between phono/line. the mixer is standalone and works without being conneted to computer (although would obviously still need power. other extra features that set this unit ahead are: jog wheel stiffness adjustment brake effect on each deck DVS built in magvel x-fader there's plenty of other features that i've missed but all in all it's really worth it's price tag, it's a supreme controller capable of delivering exceptional performance in every situation.
Although this product is high end, I must admit that mixing with this equipment was a lot easier to come to terms with than I originally imagined. I had been using software and a laptop to do pre-produced mixes with an effects unit up until now and took the plunge to learn proper beatmixing. Using Serato seems pretty simple and once you get used to the controls from a basic point of view in the software and also hardware you can start mixing proficiently within a few days i'd say. I am pleased with the effects and also ease of use with the jog wheels etc, the quality is high.... Ive yet to attach my RMX-500 unit which I used to use previously, but the amount of effects on the hardware is great even without it.... Iam still learning how to do a lot of these! Overall great product even if price is high.... but its great I could get this on finance so not to spend all in 1 go! Cant wait to learn more and hopefully use live in a set one day!
Super fast delivery and service ... Great Product ... haven't had a full play with it as yet but as usual packed with amazing pioneer features. Thanks for being my number one choice on this product.
So glad I bought these decks if you want something closer to the cdj2000 and djm 900 without spending the money this is the one you want! Yes its a controller but you still have to choice to beatmatch if you want and not use the sync buttons. Effects sound amazing. So much you can so on it! Would definitely recommend it!
Pioneer really have gone to the top with this controller - and trust me I can seriously recommend it - worth every penny just it's size justifys its price tag - not to mention the build quality of it- and then there's it's sound quality - again a winner - if like me you wanted dvs control with your ddj sx without boxes everywhere and two computers then it's a no brainer - not to say it looks nice in a rig with a pair of turntables - respect due pioneer
