As controllers continue to rise in popularity among consumers and DJs
alike due to their ease-of-use and increased functionality, Pioneer
Electronics (USA) Inc.'s Professional Sound and Visual Division
continues to develop the most advanced controllers in the market and
today introduced its latest DDJ-SX2 controller for Serato® DJ with
"Serato Flip" functionality. The new DDJ-SX2
is the industry's first controller to use Serato Flip, which can record
and playback a user's hot cue operations. In addition, the model
features specially designed operation buttons, multi-colored Performance
Pads, and improved JOG wheel reaction time.

"The release of our first generation DDJ-SX made a huge impact in the DJ
community and we expect nothing less with this next version," said David
Arevalo, director of marketing, Professional Sound and Visual Division
for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "The DDJ-SX2 features the latest
updates, including Serato Flip capability, that enable DJs to be more
creative with hot cues, as well as multi-colored Performance Pads found
on the flagship DDJ-SZ."
Serato DJ's "Serato Flip"
Serato Flip is a new function in Serato DJ that lets DJs record hot cue
combinations and replay them on a loop. DJs can record themselves
triggering cues using the Performance Pads and automatically loop the
sequence back on demand. Up to six recordings (slots) of Hot Cue
sequences can be made for playback at a later time. Pioneer added Record
(start/stop recording), Start (start/stop loop), and Slot (store)
buttons to quickly access the Serato Flip operation.
The DDJ-SX2 provides the same functional layout of its predecessor with
quick access to a multitude of Serato DJ features. The layout of the
buttons, knobs, sliders and Performance Pads deliver the best DJ
controller experience designed to match the applicable software
The DDJ-SX2 features four external inputs for connection with CD
players, analog turntables, microphones and more, with the ability to
act as a stand-alone mixer (without the need to connect to a PC/MAC).
The controller includes two Master Out and one Booth Out outputs for
connection to external public address (PA) equipment. The DDJ-SX2 also
features support for the Serato DJ DVS function. Users will have the
ability to purchase Serato's DVS Expansion Pack and perform Serato DJ
deck control on the DDJ-SX2 with Pioneer CDJ players or analog
The DDJ-SX2 will be available in October with a suggested retail price
The first 10,000 units of the DDJ-SX2 sold worldwide will be bundled
with a free of charge license to the Serato Video plug-in (worth $149).
