    Default Pioneer DDJ - SX, first "serato dj" controller

    So, I just read an article on ddjt where they say that Pioneer is working on a new controller for the newest serato software. The controller will be launched on the first of November. Here are some specifications from the new controller.



    1. Performance pads. Similar to the Novation TWITCH and the Vestax VCI-380 (and velocity-sensitive, like the latter), the controller’s performance pads will control samples, cues, loop rolls and a slicer

    2. “Dual Deck” mode. This will apparently let you link two decks (ie A&C, B&D) and manipulate them as one

    3. 4-channel standalone hardware mixer. Like the Vestax VCI-400 (finally), the unit will also work as an analogue mixer

    4. Slip mode. Slip mode lets you manipulate the track (scratching, looping, triggering cue points), then when you exit slip mode, the track will continue where it would have been before you began. It’s a popular feature on CDJs from Pioneer and Denon

    5. Other high-end features. Fader start, dedicated filter knobs and large platters point to this being very much a pro controller, that ought to appeal to those playing out as much as bedroom DJs. Assuming it has decent microphone ins and balanced/booth outputs, that is…
    (source: http://www.digitaldjtips.com/2012/10...o-dj-software/)

    So, what do you think? A new ground-breaking product or another regular dj-controller?

    You can always post some new updates of information about the new controller in this thread.

    Great news Looking forward to the new fx and midi mapping. damn izotope fx too... O_O

    Smells like the start of something larger though for serato - spider sense is tingling.

    Too bad it will likely be ridiculously overpriced. I'm guessing $1,399 street price.

    And this happens one week after I switch from SSL+1200's to S2+1200's+Audio 6

    But I have no regrets, it's hard to beat the form factor the the S2
