Taking a lead from technology and know-how cultivated through development of professional DJ equipment, the DDJ-SZ is a DJ controller with the same level of operability as Pioneers professional DJ equipment. Authentic DJ performances can be given as though playing with a component DJ system combining multi-player and mixer.

"BIG JOG" for accurate performance
The DDJ-SZ features a BIG JOG with a diameter of 206mm the same as that of the CDJ-2000NXS pro DJ/club-oriented multi player with excellent operability. Precise scratch performances have been made possible with the inclusion of an ON JOG DISPLAY in the center of the JOG, showing the playback status and position. The popular JOG FEELING ADJUST feature from the CDJ series also returns, so users can adjust to their liking the control load and continuous backspin time, etc. during scratch performances. The DDJ-SZ also features the industrys fastest JOG response time (the time from operation of the JOG until the operation signal is transmitted to the software), enabling scratch performances exactly as intended.

Mixer parts using the same layout as in professional models
The DDJ-SZ inherits its control parts layout from Pioneer's professional-oriented DJM series, which is used in clubs around the world. With a simple, easy-to-understand layout, and generous spaces between each control part, the DDJ-SZ delivers comfortable, dynamic controls. Also, level meters are positioned next to the control interface for the master and each channel, so the input and output levels can be ascertained instantly during performance.

Large pads for dynamic performance and comfortable controls
Large rubber PERFORMANCE PADS have been positioned at the front of the unit for control of functions such as HOT CUE and SAMPLER. As well as being able to apply arrangements to music with dynamic actions such as hits and rolls, the audio volume of these actions can be made stronger or weaker depending on the strength with which the pads are hit. Also, the color and on/off status of the multicolor illuminations built into each pad make it possible to determine the mode of the selected pad and the performance status of all pads at a glance.

Two USB soundcards for smooth DJ handovers
Two sound cards and USB ports enable two computers to be connected at the same time. A dedicated A/B button on each side of the controller enables DJs to split the controller and assign each half between the two USB ports for seamless DJ handovers with no more awkward gaps in the music.

DJs can enjoy even more creative freedom thanks to a high/low pass filter on every channel, including the two MIC channels and sampler, plus Master channel, while each effects can be fine-tuned using the large rotary parameter dial. High-quality FX include the new Oscillator Noise, Siren, Cymbal and Horn as well as popular Sound Color FX Pitch, Echo, Jet and Filter

OSCILLATOR adds sounds to produce new musical developments
The DDJ-SZ is equipped with an OSCILLATOR that emits four types of sound (NOISE, SIREN, CYMBAL, HORN). Simply select the type of sound you want to output and turn the knob to produce new developments in the music by overlaying sounds on top of the music being played, further emphasizing exciting parts of the music, and so on.

SOUND COLOUR FX adds diverse arrangements to music
The DDJ-SZ includes four types of SOUND COLOUR FX functions (PITCH, JET, ECHO, FILTER), which are a popular part of the DJM series. 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.

OTHER FEATURES:

• All buttons and knobs, as well as the soundcard*2, are PLUG AND PLAY - configured in advance to work with Serato DJ.
• The full-sized jog wheels are optimized for a perfect scratch response, while the illuminated cue point markers with cue countdown give you effortless control without looking at your laptop screen.
• Slip Mode for precision scratching: Slip Mode silently continues track playback during a loop, reverse or scratch, and brings the music back at the right point when the DJ exits the performance. It also adds a further level to the Performance Pads, enabling tricks such as Slip Hot Cue
• Needle Search: touch strip for intuitive, fast searches
• P-LOCK Fader Caps are impossible to pull off in the heat of a mix.
• Auto Standby function switches to standby mode when a state of no use or no input continues for a certain period of time.

this is hand down the best for your buck, without breaking the bank and buying the nexus. I did purchase mine but got a deal...yes i know i am one of the few lucky ones, but man oh man the response time the quality of sound A1 ONLY negative thing i would say about this is finding a light weight case is impossible so if you are getting a case make sure it has wheels!!! other than that this is the perfect controller in my books....its a work horse!!!

I purchased this DDJ-SZ 4 months ago now and can finally say it is a bargain even though the price looks high. It is 1/3 the price of of a full Nexus set-up and has 80-90 % of the features. The full size jog wheels with better displays, dedicated mic out and colour effects are worth the price over the SX2. I would only recommend this product if you plan on taking mixing serious,as the SX2 would be fine for parties. They type of person buying this should be one that doesn't have 7k plus to spend on a nexus set-up but want lots of features or someone who is thinking of taking mixing serious and needs the best to practice on before moving to a nexus set up. This would also be plenty for doing weddings or cooperate events.

I love the feel, the controls, the lights. Excellent sample pads. Job wheels are 100% responsive. A little tricky setting it up to broadcast to online radio, but I managed to figure it out. Overall the best investment Ive made!!
