Pioneer Unveil DDJ-SB Serato DJ Controller For Newbie Jocks

Pioneer DDJ-SB

The folks at Pioneer DJ might be known for their wide range of professional DJ gear, but they haven’t forgotten the newbies in the marketplace. Today the company announced a new addition to its line, the entry level DDJ-SB Serato DJ controller. The unit is compact, easily transportable and brandishes all of the bundled Serato DJ Intro’s cues, loops, FX and samples. The DDJ-SB sports what it says is “the industry’s first Filter Fade, which helps aspiring DJs create seamless mixes by adding a high pass filter to the crossfader – enabling smoother transitions with just one control.” The DDJ-SB, bundled with Serato DJ Intro, will go on-sale January 2014 at an SRP of €249/£199, including VAT.
