Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2
Top-of-the-line Serato DJ Control
If it's time to get serious about your Serato DJ rig, then it's time to step up to the Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2. Developed by Pioneer, and providing you with as close as it gets to a 1:1 physical control to software function ratio, this all-in-one DJ controller and interface represents the very best control technology to date. Basically, if you can click it, drag it, or fire it off from your keyboard, then there's a button, knob, or fader that will do the job better on your DDJ-SZ2 — and that's just the beginning. The DDJ-SZ2 goes way beyond Serato DJ control, with features such as an onboard effects oscillator and Pioneer's trend-setting Sound Color FX onboard. Check out the full details below.
Second-generation flagship Serato DJ control
As a company that's committed to taking care of our customers, all of us here at Sweetwater take special note when a manufacturer responds to customer feedback by improving their products, and the DDJ-SZ2 is an exceptional example of that. It's the follow-up to the original DDJ-SZ, which many consider the industry standard in Serato DJ controllers already, so Pioneer decided to kick it up a notch. The DDJ-SZ2 adds powerful Key Shift, Key Sync, Pitch Play, and Serato Flip controls to the layout, all of which provide you with greater performance options than ever. They've also updated the jog wheel, tightening up the latency to make scratching more precise than ever.
All the essential functions done really, really well
Some of the most basic functions you'd expect from any DJ controller aren't necessarily the most exciting ones, but they matter more than you realize. With the DDJ-SZ2, Pioneer ensures that you get direct, low-latency control over Serato DJ. For most setups, that means the only part of your computer you'll ever need is the screen — there's no need to touch your mouse or keyboard. It even maps to Serato DJ right out of the box, so there's no tedious setup time before you can get started. Browsing and searching tracks are major functions you want to have covered, and while Pioneer's browsing setup has always made it easy to navigate your song library, Sweetwater DJs love the Needle Search function, which makes finding the perfect drop-in point easy. Top it off with insanely robust Magvel faders, and all your critical functions are covered.
