The folks at Pioneer have been keeping themselves — and DJs around the world — pretty busy lately. It was only a few days ago that we were filling you in on their new DJM-S9 two-channel mixer for Serato DJ, and now here comes another new machine rolling down the pike. This one’s got a much more accessible price tag, because it’s being marketed to a more entry-level user, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a serious piece of equipment, so don’t pass it by without giving it the once-over. The DDJ-SB2 is controller for both Serato DJ and Serato DJ Intro, and the two-channel machine has got all the same things a lot of people loved about its predecessor, the DDJ-SB (filter fade, performance pads, et al).
But of course, the SB2 adds a few tricks of its own, like level meters, trim pots, and the Pad Trans beat effect and four-deck control. It even comes with Serato DJ Intro, for self-starters who want to hit the ground running. We’re looking a September date for this particular piece, and a pretty damn attractive price of around $285.
If you’re intrigued enough to investigate further, you can get some more detailed info on the SB2 on the website. Or if you’re feeling especially lazy on this late-summer day, you can always just look at the video intro below.
