Pioneer DDJ-SB Entry Level Midi Controller

  • PDF

The DDJ-SB is even more compact and portable than the premium DDJ-SX and DDJ-SR controllers, yet it offers the same intuitive operability, with plug-and-play access to the bundled Serato DJ Intro software’s loops, Hot Cues, samples and FX. Alternatively DJs can purchase the full Serato DJ for plug-and-play control of even more exciting features.

New to this entry level controller 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. So they’ll have a free hand to remix and mash-up tracks using the DDJ-SB’s tactile performance controls, including eight Performance Pads, two highly responsive jog wheels, and manual high/low pass filters on each channel.

Plus a dedicated website will support DDJ-SB users through set up, preparing and mixing, and advanced skills such as scratching and recording.1

Like the DDJ-SR, the DDJ-SB is compact, light and USB powered – with a professional design and build to ensure it is robust and stylish enough to be at home in any environment.

Designed for intuitive plug-and-play control of Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ

The DDJ-SB has dedicated controls for all the bundled Serato DJ Intro software’s features including loops, four Hot Cues and four samples. Plus the DDJ-SB has two FX units per channel, with six FX to choose from, the parameters of which can be controlled using one Level/Depth dial.  

DJs can also purchase the full version of Serato DJ for intuitive control of even more cue points, samples and loops – plus advanced features including Slip Mode, recording mixes, and FX Powered by iZotope.


Industry first: Filter Fade enables DJs to do more than just mix 

The new Filter Fade function takes mixing with the crossfader beyond simply fading the volume of one channel up and the other down. By hitting the Filter Fade button, DJs can add two high pass filters to the crossfader – so both volume and base filter can be manipulated using just one hand. Seamless mixing becomes effortless, and DJs can use their spare hand to unleash their creativity, triggering samples, loops and cues.


Tactile controls add a fun, physical element to performing

The DDJ-SB’s layout mirrors Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ interface, so getting hands on with the controller’s tactile buttons and dials soon becomes second nature. Highlights 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.
Low-latency jog wheels: two 112-mm aluminium jog wheels are highly responsive for precision scratching.
Manual filters on each channel: independent low/high pass filter dials for each channel are inherited from the premium DDJ-SX and DDJ-SR controllers.


USB powered for ultimate ease of set up

The DDJ-SB is USB powered, so DJs simply connect the controller to their PC or laptop using the provided USB cable – there is no need for additional connections.


Professional design and build in keeping with Pioneer pro-DJ products

The latest in Pioneer’s range of professional controllers for Serato DJ, the DDJ-SB is constructed from premium materials and audio circuitry. The robust build ensures durability, while the distinctive styling and aluminium jog wheel deliver a professional feel.
