Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division today unveiled a new addition to its “DDJ-S” Serato® based line of controllers, the DDJ-SB, which features similar operability as Pioneer’s extremely popular DDJ-SX and recently announced DDJ-SR. More compact and portable than the other models, the DDJ-SB 2-channel DJ controller is designed for the entry-level DJ who wants the same look and feel as the two upper models but with more basic operability and at a more affordable price. The DDJ-SB uses the Serato DJ Intro software and incorporates multiple performance pads, large jog wheels, and a new Filter Fade function that assists users in smoothly blending together tracks of different styles.
“Serato continues to rise in popularity due to its ease-of-use and intuitive user interface, and we’re continuing to support the software with an extended lineup of controllers,” said David Arevalo, director of marketing, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The new DDJ-SB is a great way for beginners to start learning how to DJ using software like Serato DJ Intro, and once they’ve mastered this combo of hardware and software, they can easily move up to the more advanced level of products.”
Excelled Performance with DDJ-SB
The DDJ-SB offers a range of advanced functions including the popular Performance Pads and new Filter Fade.
The DDJ-SB will be available in January 2014 with a suggested retail price of $299.
