A new flagship Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2 announced
A new flagship Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2 has been announced. It is a high end performance controller for Serato. The Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2 includes controls for the software’s latest features which you will most likely enjoy.
This new top of the line controller is an upgrade of the DDJ-SZ which came out two years ago. The features includes new dedicated controls for the Serato DJ software’s Pitch ‘n Time mode. This allows you to play track cues across different keys.
Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2 also has controls for Serato Flip. This is a feature that allows you to record and play back cue points and easily recall edits or remixes made in the middle of a set.
According to Pioneer DJ this model has been upgraded with more responsive jog wheels for improved scratching capabilities, and includes an oscillator capable of making four different sounds: siren, drop, noise or laser.
Aside from the new added features the DDJ-SZ2 is more or less the same as its predecessor. It features four channels, performance pads for triggering samples, built-in effects and two USB ports for easy switchovers.
The controller comes with a copy of Serato DJ included, and also includes licenses for the Pitch ‘n Time and Serato Flip add-ons.
Serato Flip allows you to record and playback cue point and censor actions. The simple, yet effective control set designed with the DJ in mind allows you to reimagine your tracks in unlimited ways. Extend or shorten, make clean edits or completely remix and reshuffle your tracks. Use Flip with Quantize cue points on to get perfect edits.
Record Flips on the fly while DJing or you can make them in offline mode. Flips are non-destructive edits.You will get to save up to six different Flips per track without changing the original.
