Pioneer DDJ-SB2 USB DJ Controller @ DV247 £180 Delivered

The Pioneer DDJ-SB2 USB DJ Controller boasts all the features of the original DDJ-SB – including Filter Fade, Performance Pads and advanced features not usually available at this price point – and adds trim pots, level meters, the Pad Trans beat effect and 4-deck control.

The DDJ-SB has been hugely popular with budding DJs, thanks to its intuitive, plug-and-play control of Serato DJ Intro (free) and Serato DJ (paid upgrade), which offers features including iZotope FX, Slip Mode, record and a host of expansion packs. The controller’s innovative Filter Fade lets DJs mix seamlessly, adjusting the volume and high pass filter with just one hand. So they’ve got a spare hand to unleash their creativity – using the tactile Performance Pads and buttons to trigger samples, FX, loops and cues.

Now the DDJ-SB2 adds pro-DJ features usually found on top-flight controllers, including trim pots and level meters to control the volumes on each channel. Also new at this price point are four-deck control and the quantized Pad Trans Pad beat effect, which cuts the volume in time with the BPM when the DJ hits the Performance Pads.

The USB-powered DDJ-SB2 is more compact and portable than its pro-DJ stable mates, the DDJ-SX2 and DDJ-SZ, but offers the same intuitive layout, high-quality build, and many advanced features.

The main features of the Pioneer DDJ-SB2 USB DJ Controller include:

Performance Pads: four rubber pads enable DJs to trigger Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler – while a further four give immediate access to Play, Cue, Sync and Shift functions.
New trim pots and level meters: the DDJ-SB2 is the first controller at his price point to feature trim pots and level meters, putting control of the volume of each track at DJs’ fingertips.
Manual filters on each channel: independent low/high pass filter dials for each channel are inherited from the premium DDJ-SX2 and DDJ-SR controllers.
New quantized Trans beat effect: DJs use the Performance Pads to trigger the Pad Trans effect and cut the volume in time with the beat.
Filter Fade: makes mixing effortless by adding two high pass filters to the crossfader – so DJs can manipulate the volume and the bass filter with just one hand.

Pioneer seem to be well respected with dj's out there. Looks to be a nice piece of kit. Plus the supplier, DV247, has been quite good with some of my customer queries so far.
Pioneer make amazing Controllers, this is somewhat of a low end one though. But for the price it can get anyone started. All you need is a PC/laptop amp and speakers.

If i had posted a top or mid end one, it would of gone cold within minutes

And as stated above Traktor or Serato work with this. VDJ is also available to download (free versions) which someone is mapping for this controller. Might already have been done now.

Good price for a decent quality controller. That said I prefer the official traktor controllers with Traktor myself
What exactly are you sacrificing by buying a low end model? Is it the kind of thing where in 3 months I'll be wishing I got a pricier one?

​club standard high end controllers have extra features that 90% of djs never use so irts never a bad idea to buy a cheaper one from a good manufacturer like Pioneer after some research. I never bought any kit yet I've been playing around London for over ten years. I don't know this particular model, but if it's Pioneer and it works with traktor, you can't go wrong.

Like thomasrykala said, most DJ's don't use all the features. But its nice to have them in case you do. Also the latency in he Top end machines are usually a lot lower meaning when you press the button on the controller their is no time delay..

Also high end controller would have built in soundcards, so the output comes from the controller and not the PC.

This deal does have built in sound but no external power supply. So its only powered by the USB cable.

Start off with something and work your way up, if you upgrade and don't see any difference, stick to what you have.
