Anybody Pre-order the DDJ-SX from American Music Supply?

DJ Baby Raj 6:49 AM - 2 November, 2012
Just wondering if anybody did?
Jumbo650 6:54 AM - 2 November, 2012
I pre ordered from zzounds and now I regret it would have been easier to go to my local GC. Because I have not received not even a tracking nuber or anything
DJ Baby Raj 6:57 AM - 2 November, 2012
Yeah they're telling me a week or 2? Must be the storm messing up their shipment.
DJ Baby Raj 6:58 AM - 2 November, 2012
Reason I wanted to use AMS because the payment plan
ToddLarBoy 7:08 AM - 2 November, 2012
I bought a couple of them from Planet DJ and I think they still have 1 or 2 in stock. Also got free sales tax :)
Dj Nyce 7:12 AM - 2 November, 2012
i've used the payment plan in the past with zzounds and i have had nothing but a good experience.

if you have the dough, get it from GC or AGIPRODJ. if you need the payment plan, have patience and stick with AMS or zzounds.

No worries. I had mine pre-ordered at AMS also along with a few others on the board. We have all called/online chatted with different reps and told us they were getting them in today or tomm. The main warehouse supplier in NJ got hit with sandy and once they get them in they will process and ship them out according to the pre-order list (in order). They had 60 units with the free voucher according to 5 different reps I talked to when I was pre-ordering and the first 60 pre-order will get them. Im crossing my fingers as my payment cleared and I was told that I was #54 on the pre-order list. Not getting my hopes up but we are all trying to be patient!
DJ Baby Raj 7:33 AM - 2 November, 2012
I just placed my order! 3 payments! Time to sell the S1 lol... My status says "Verification" what does this mean??
DJ Baby Raj 7:33 AM - 2 November, 2012
Deed, good to hear man!

Verification process in AMS is just awaiting for their credit manager to clear and process your payment from the bank. Sometimes they will call the bank to verify address eta. You prob ordered when the credit dept closed. The sales dept stays longer to take more orders.

Good to hear you pre-ordered hope you get it soon brotha
DJ Baby Raj 11:47 AM - 2 November, 2012
Deed, thanks for the info... Ya man I can't wait to get it!
DeedupDex 9:49 PM - 2 November, 2012
Somebody else call and ask about them from AMS because from what I was told just now it will be a couple more weeks.............. I called yesterday and the day before they told me today. Not looking good for AMS pre-orders...
DJ Baby Raj 10:18 PM - 2 November, 2012
Yeah man I just called and lady I spoke with said possible mid-week I asked how they didn't know but it seems their warehouse in NJ is messing up everything because trucks still have to bring them. A whole story. I just want my mixer!!

Plus I don't know how many they are getting and how ppl are in front of me.
DJ Baby Raj 10:31 PM - 2 November, 2012
Hey deed what does your order ship status say? Mine says "Automatic CC Auth"

Im jealous of seeing all these youtube posts of people already with their SX.

I called to preorder because I wanted to make sure to be under the supposedly 60 units with the video voucher. So I can't check my status online. But according to ams my status is just processing waiting to ship.

"Automatic CC Auth" Is just your $$ being held by the bank. Once they ship the item they will take your first payment. Lets hope we get them soon
DJ Baby Raj 12:21 AM - 3 November, 2012
Keep this posts updated man let me know if you get yours so I can know... We need more people to join unless no one else uses these forums from AMS lol
DJ Baby Raj 12:24 AM - 3 November, 2012
Ok so I just checked my bank account and they pulled the money... and now my online status says "All Backordered" :(
diezdiaz 1:52 AM - 3 November, 2012
I called them earlier, I'm guessing tomorrow or Monday at the earliest. Their stock control is definitely still affected as the page for the SX still says preorder
diezdiaz 1:53 AM - 3 November, 2012
I ordered mine on the fifteenth at midnight, pretty sure I should be near the top of the list and mine says the same - "back ordered"
DJ Baby Raj 2:23 AM - 3 November, 2012
Good to see someone else on the list. Let's keep this updated
djkrazyleo 4:25 AM - 3 November, 2012
On the list for ams and my account says all backordered too so i just need to wait and see.
DJ Baby Raj 4:44 AM - 3 November, 2012
Curous what did you guys pay for the DDJ-SX
Asu 9:08 PM - 3 November, 2012

Yeah i ordered from AMS too.

Oct.10th...five full days before Diaz lol, but i know the east coast warehouse was affected by that hurricane...since i'm in Los Angeles, mine should come from the Arizona warehouse.

i chatted with 2 people from AMS and pointed out some Sam Ash and Guitar center outlets got a few DDJ-SX by Mon(Oct.29th). They all said the shipment dates are different for various retailers/Locations and we may have to wait till Nov.12 at least...if you've set an alert,an e-mail will be sent out when it's in stock.

I'm just scanning my collection with beat gridding activated for now as i tap away at the desk lol

Ordered mines on the 10th also. I know that their NJ warehouse has troubles, but they could at least give the customers an update on our order status. I think they are stalling so that no one will cancel their order and get it from somewhere else. That would be a lot of business lost for AMS.
DJ Baby Raj 10:10 PM - 3 November, 2012
Did they say how many units they were getting?
the SOUNDINSURGENT 10:48 PM - 3 November, 2012
I highly doubt they'll loose anyone cause most the people who use them don't have a grand and if they did they'd more then likely go to GC or something ....... shits really jacked up on the east coast.
diezdiaz 11:04 PM - 3 November, 2012
Lol thought the fifteenth was the day they posted them for pre order... Here's to hoping that if I'm not in the first 60 enough people cancel that I get bumped up
Asu 6:53 PM - 4 November, 2012
Ok got some more info...AMS staff just told me Pioneer told them they should get their shipment this week.

So patience my brothers,DDJ-SX will get to us on time for those thanks giving gigs :-)

Also that Pioneer had a deal with Guitar center to be the first place with a couple of DDJ-SXs.Didn't say anything about Sam Ash...
DJ Baby Raj 8:52 PM - 4 November, 2012
AMS dropped the ball on this. ALL the GC in my area have atleast 3 or more in stock and Sam ash. How is it or a company to promote pre orders fail not have one out after its been almost a week it's been release while some random dude walks in GC and walks out with one. I had this talk with. AMS rep and just got the storm excuse.

Just gotta wait fellas.....
Asu 3:03 AM - 5 November, 2012
i know,i told them it kinda defeats the whole pre-order idea...those who didn't are getting one by just walking into guitar center...then again we should be grateful for the 5-8 payment plans with no interest or tax for those outside new jersey.

We'll just have to be patient....we've already waited this long anyway...1 more week won't hurt
DJ Baby Raj 3:34 AM - 5 November, 2012
Yeah true on the payments thats why I did it.

Yup, hopefully once I get it I'll sell the S1...
DeedupDex 9:00 AM - 5 November, 2012
My AMS pre-order brothers, almost there guys! Ive been in my local GC at least three times where they have the SX setup and have been playing around with it for hours at a time. I can't wait to get mine in.

On a more brighter note: The past couple Ams Cust service reps I have been talking to are super certain they will have a big shipment from Pioneer with the video vouchers on them. Im hoping at least everyone in this board gets one.

Man that really bites! They won't give you guys a solid ship date?
DeedupDex 9:29 PM - 5 November, 2012
Called in today and all the reps have been told to tell all customers regarding any questions about the DDJ-SX that it will be about 1-2 weeks till they get their shipment from pioneer. This was what pioneer told them late last week (thurs-fri). Then It would prob take another week to get to my house after sending it out. This is also assuming they have enough units to send out once they finally get their first batch... But def no str8 answers.
DJ Baby Raj 9:36 PM - 5 November, 2012
Why is it taking so long? Must be a big order... hopefully 200+
DeedupDex 9:41 PM - 5 November, 2012
Im hoping its a big order filled with free vouchers!
diezdiaz 10:26 PM - 5 November, 2012
Jersey is one of the states that got shit on hardest by the storm, hence the delay
DJ Baby Raj 4:44 PM - 7 November, 2012
Any updates?
Asu 5:01 PM - 7 November, 2012
Updates next Monday...that's when AMS should have some in stock...it's funny that's the date Serato had under the DDJ-SX besides the launch date...

So I'm guessing wide release is Mon,Nov 12th...I know apple does the same thing...release a few...hype up the customer base (less supply vs Demand)...then do a general release...
DJ Baby Raj 5:04 PM - 7 November, 2012
Lol... yeah sounds about right, I told the rep at AMS they should give everyone free serato video for this, she said she'll see what they can do... YA RIGHT!
DeedupDex 5:23 PM - 7 November, 2012

They said they never received anything from pioneer. On any of their warehouses. Its Pioneer that's lagging.
spicaly 6:53 PM - 7 November, 2012
zzounds told me basically the same thing... still waiting on first shipment which should be around 100 units
DJKayce 7:01 PM - 7 November, 2012
Mine just shipped from AMS. Checked my account statue and it said shipped Today with Fedex Tracking number. So I should get it by tomorrow. Fingers crossed till tomorrow.
DJ Baby Raj 7:20 PM - 7 November, 2012

I thought there was a limited amount that was giving out free?

DJKayce Make sure you check the box and everything once you get it. Hopefully it wont be a return or the model they demoed with. Just check everything from opened packages and ripped tape eta. But lucky you if it did ship
DJ Baby Raj 8:12 PM - 7 November, 2012
Heres a message I got from AMS on Facebook:

Hey Chris, we are scheduled to get over 100 more than we have on pre order so dont worry you will get one for sure. As to when they get in, I'm not exactly positive but they were scheduled to get in this week so it should be very soon. Im assuming the storm may of put a hold on them but I wouldnt think for too long. Let me know if you have any other questions.

UPDATE ASAP AS SOON AS YOU GET IT K
Asu 8:28 PM - 7 November, 2012
you guys also have to remember Location matters...AMS has wherehouses all over the US so different warehouses will receive on different dates i assume ...if you're in Los Angeles for example....they ship from Reno nevada which is only 5hours from LA
DJ Baby Raj 9:24 PM - 7 November, 2012
DJKayce are you on the west side? Maybe the west side warehouse got them first, I'm on the east side.
DJKayce 10:19 PM - 7 November, 2012

Are they talking about the unit itself or the free voucher with the units?



Also Im in Cali and we have nothing yet.
DJ Baby Raj 10:45 PM - 7 November, 2012
Talking about the units them self
Felonyruckus 1:28 AM - 8 November, 2012
DeedupDex,

Where in Cali are you? I didn't pre-order and I got mine the first day...
DJ Baby Raj 3:58 AM - 8 November, 2012
Where did u get it from? AMS?
DJ Baby Raj 5:42 AM - 8 November, 2012
So I just noticed something... Maybe some of you already did. Since I placed my order last week, the first easy payment was on hold on my bank account, however now I notice the hold is gone and the money is back in my account. Is this normall? I'm guessing they will re-charge me once it's actually shipped out? Looks like this will give me another reason to call them. :)

They only charge you when they ship out...so don't empty that account lol...by monday for sure this thread will be lit up with good news

DJ Baby Raj 6:42 AM - 8 November, 2012
Lol we got the same setup man, I do that now... DDJ-S1 2 K12 and my KW181, can't wait to hear how the SX sounds.

Northern Cali Bay Area. Yes there are two GC's with the SX's available for purchase at the moment. I had mine pre-ordered through AMS.

This is normal. The bank holds the money first until it ships then it clears. In our case since the SX is not in stock, They hold the money then about 4-5 days later the held money goes back in account. They will then take the money out again once it ships.
Felonyruckus 8:10 AM - 8 November, 2012

I would I just ended up picking up a couple of limited white Krk's instead. Since my local GC has the SX on display I just play around with it there. Plus I can see how much of a beating the SX could take. Im seriously beating the hell out of the display model and I am proud to say that thing is solid.
Felonyruckus 9:22 AM - 8 November, 2012
Yeah, it's built very well. I'm actually beating it pretty hard too.

Evryone in this discussion, make sure you post when you get it. Some of you post your unboxing. But make sure you hide your code for SV.


BTW I checked today for my code. Yup, it's there
Maver1ck 2:44 PM - 8 November, 2012

Maver1ck 4:22 PM - 8 November, 2012
I was hoping to test the unit at home all of the month of November before taking it to big holiday events in December. I am not sure if I will have enough time to test it now.
DJ James G 4:09 AM - 9 November, 2012
I ordered mine from Music Trends 2 days ago and It shipped out the same day (got the controller/case bundle)... For those of you still looking to order one, try calling them, as they still have some in stock. Good luck everyone.

Dj Riff Stylez 2:00 PM - 12 November, 2012
I also ordered from AMS and, from what mulitple reps have told me, I won't be getting my SX for at least another month. I can't even begin to explain how livid I am with Pioneer over all this. How did they not anticipate the demand this unit would have once it was introduced? IMO, the SX could arguably become what the Rane 57 mixer is as far as industry standard equipment. The fact that it's priced at $1k, I had no doubt in my mind that damn near every DJ would be ordering one asap.
It's pretty ridiculous that a global electronic giant like Pioneer would drop the ball on this. To all that have gotten their SX, congrats to you and enjoy. You're lucky!!
Asu 2:41 PM - 12 November, 2012
According to AMS reps...they got a few DDJ-SXs first batch from which a few that ordered early (Oct 8th) like Kayce got theirs...i & some of you here pre-ordered Oct 10th...the next shipment is expected this week,so those that orded on the 10th and after for sure are in this next batch...

I was also told they are getting an extra 100 units over pre-orders...so im guessing this is a really big shipment :-)
Dj Riff Stylez 2:48 PM - 12 November, 2012
I really hope your right bro. Thanks a lot for the info.

Dj Riff Stylez 5:49 PM - 12 November, 2012
Yeah, that's the same week I ordered mine. I called AMS last thursday and they said they wouldn't get another shipment for another couple of weeks. I gave my number to a few Guitar Center locations to call me whenever a shipment comes in because at this point, I don't even care about the free video download. I'd rather try and get the $200 off and buy from GC.

you guys who use the mic alot may wanna read the Mic section discussion...seems the specs were not listed and some people are having issues with mic distortion...i'm assuming this is if you don't use the right mic...

but yeah let's wait and see what happens this week
Dj Riff Stylez 8:21 PM - 12 November, 2012
You know what's interesting is I had the same issue when I had my DJM-400 mixed. I had to get a seperate mixer/board to get the mic level right. It was really bad with a wireless mic.
DeedupDex 8:25 PM - 12 November, 2012
Im hoping for a ship out this week from AMS. I don't think I can handle waiting another month when there's 2 stores near by that has them in stock. I just dont understand how AMS cant get a solid answer from pioneer. Only reason Im still waiting is the payment plan. If they say another 2 weeks to a month then im going to cancel and bring my $$$ to another store that can take care of its customers properly.

+1

Their problem is that each time you talk to a AMS Rep., you get a different story. I have bought a lot of equipment from AMS. I guess that is why this is so frustrating. They are normally pretty good when it comes to satisfying the customer. I just want a straight answer. Yes, I want the payment plan, but if I can find it somewhere else, I will go and get it.

RomeBands 9:01 AM - 13 November, 2012
I preordered mine from AMS on Oct 10. When it said they wou b available on the Oc t 28th. Waited till then. Then it got switched to the 1st. Kept getting different stories from Sales Reps. So I had to drive to the GC in NC to go get it. Then decided to cancel the AMS order. Maybe next time they should have enough produxt when taking preorders.

Has anybody that pre-ordered on the 10th got any solid news?
Asu 6:46 PM - 13 November, 2012
I Just spoke to another rep today and he told me they thought they were getting their shipment this week but they haven't heard from pioneer so they can't confirm anything.

Personally i'm gonna wait till friday and if no confirmation still,then i'll just go to my local guitar center and get one...they have that $200 off promotion i think so u pay $799

i don't know if this delay has anything to do with the complaints about the mic section on some units.
Dj Riff Stylez 7:02 PM - 13 November, 2012
Fellas,

Call the GC stores on the west coast. They have some in stock. Have them ship it it to your nearest GC for pick up once you pay for it. I just ordered mine...they said it should arrive in 3 days. Do this ASAP cause they're selling them quick. Good Luck guys
DJ Maniti 7:13 PM - 13 November, 2012
Yeah they have them at my local GC here in Houston.. I will give AMS to the end of the week since they have been great in the past..
Dj Riff Stylez 7:23 PM - 13 November, 2012
I hear you Maniti but you may be taking a gamble doing that. AMS is pretty much the last on the list as far as priority for who gets shipments first. I highly doubt AMS will get anything this week. I would get the $200 discount and go with GC.
DJ Maniti 7:35 PM - 13 November, 2012
Yeah it seem like Pioneer didn't have the supply for demand that it is right now... But u have valid point on not waiting...
Dj Riff Stylez 7:50 PM - 13 November, 2012
Yeah they definitely dropped the ball anticipating the demand this controller would get when they introduced it. Also, keep in mind GC is pretty good about their warranty plans and its more convenient to just bring the controller back to GC if anything is wrong with it rather than having to mail it back to AMS.
diezdiaz 12:06 AM - 14 November, 2012
Called them earlier today as it's been a month, dude said they can't get a straight answer from pioneer and that they're waiting on the next shipment. If you aren't using the pay plan I'd ditch the order and buy it from GC. I'm using the pay plan so maybe another week before I cancel
DJ Baby Raj 5:53 AM - 14 November, 2012
This wait is killing me....... Last week it was this week, now next week?? the Joys of pre-orders.
diezdiaz 7:24 AM - 14 November, 2012
yeah for real, right now all ive got is the traktor pro that came with a kontrol x1, since i sold my v7s for this preorder. im about ready to cancel it and buy a traktor upgrade til the stock becomes steady
diezdiaz 7:30 AM - 14 November, 2012
its annoying that serato has the library management i prefer, but features in serato dj i prefer arent in ssl but (most) are in traktor, but traktors library management is not what i prefer.
annoying consumer bullshit.
DeedupDex 9:48 AM - 14 November, 2012
Checked my bank today and AMS took my first payment on the SX pre-order. Waiting to see If I get an email for shipping tomm (crossing fingers)

I got this from DJ Raj:
Heres a statement from the Pioneer camp: from Pioneerdj USA today - Thanks for the info. Basically due to the high demand of this product, most of our dealers didn't know that Pioneer would sell out so quickly (similar thing happened with Apple iPhone 4, 5). We have a large shipment coming from Japan end of November, so that would be the latest you would have to wait. You of course have the option to check stock at another dealer if wanted. Note that American Musical Supply is a valued dealer of ours and Im sure they trying their best to give you up-to-date order info. Thanks for all the Pioneer support

Looks like AMS might be a priority
DJ Baby Raj 11:13 AM - 14 November, 2012
Deed, when did you order?
DJ Maniti 12:45 PM - 14 November, 2012
Well its some News at least...LOL.. I'm in the same boat at deizdiaz I sold my V7s as well lol.. I hope we all get some good news soon...

Diaz,the one thing i like about traktor is it's auto update of folders & bpm scan of new songs unlike serato...i know we have smart crates but why all the hustle

AMS is killing those of us who wanted to use the pay plan...i need the pay plan as i'm a man with great responsibilities and low resources lol just can't drop $1000 cash on anything right now.

Chatted with AMS & indeed they got a small shipment this week...it wasn't as big as they thought it'd be...so just a few early pre-orders were serviced...it's a pioneer supply issue...next shipment comes in last week of this month...

Those of us who need the payment plan have to wait...if you have the cash then rush to your local GC.
Qoolee Kid 4:02 PM - 14 November, 2012
i pre-ordered from AMS. I placed my order on October 30th. At the time of placing my order, the website said the SX would ship on the 31st. But of course Hurricane Sandy had played a big part in the shipment of items. I already received my SX on the 12th, they only had 126 units on order from Pioneer and it would be a couple of weeks before the next shipment arrives.
DJ Maniti 4:08 PM - 14 November, 2012
Whoa... Where are u Qoolee Kid... U placed yours on the 30th and got it on the 12th thats great...congrats.. I place mine on the 10th and I am still waiting lol
Qoolee Kid 4:23 PM - 14 November, 2012
You'll be surprised... I'm in San Diego, CA and of course the SX shipped from their NJ warehouse.
DJ Baby Raj 4:24 PM - 14 November, 2012
Did u guys pay in full or payment plans? Wonder if AMS is shipping out first to ppl who paid in full. That would suck!!

I'm hoping it's because they paid in full,otherwise that would seriously suck if they are on the payment plan too...cause we pre-ordered much much earlier than that...if it turns out that they just screwed up,i'm cancelling asap...
DJ Maniti 4:36 PM - 14 November, 2012
I paid in full ... Still no luck here in Houston.. I just called AMS and the guy didnt have a solid answer.. Come on Pioneer get them units out... I still hope we get Serato video for free too.

ok looks like whoever is shipping out is going according to most recent order on the list instead of going by dates :-/ ....gonna call then right now and lodge a complaint....that shouldn't happen
Qoolee Kid 4:45 PM - 14 November, 2012
No, I'm paying by installments. Maybe I just happened to get the last order in for that first batch of 126 units.
Qoolee Kid 4:45 PM - 14 November, 2012
Also, I was calling 2-3 times a day asking for any kind of update.

Qoolee Kid 6:00 PM - 14 November, 2012
hahah well believe me or not... it still doesn't change the fact that I received mine on the 12th and the SX is sitting pretty at home in between two of my 1200s, connected to my MBP and Samsung LED.

If I could post a picture within this thread I would. But instead I'll post up a youtube video tonight. Not that I have to, but if it's an issue with AMS, I'd be glad to do it just to help out everybody that's still waiting on their orders. Maybe you guys might be able to use it as leverage when talking to AMS. IDK
Qoolee Kid 6:05 PM - 14 November, 2012
Maybe it has to do with how long I've been ordering from them? or maybe how much I've spent buying products from them? IDK man, I wish I could tell you what's up. I've been an AMS customer since 2007. I place at least one BIG order with them each year. I've been ordering something for the last 4 months so maybe I've been put into some kind of preferred customer group that they might secretly have. I doubt it, but very unfortunate for the rest that ordered before me and still are SX-less. If that were me, I would definitely complain, but like I mentioned in my previous post, I'll post up a youtube video tonight as evidence.

Order #: W4378561
Order Date: 10/29/2012
Items on order: 1
Ship Status: Shipped Complete
Product: $ 999.00
Tax: $0.00
Shipping: $9.95


My mistake, I ordered on the 29th, not the 30th. This is copied straight from My Account information on AMS.

Deed, when did you order?


I ordered Oct 18.

I just called AMS and asked why my money was pulled from the bank. They actually pulled it a week ago. I did not get any shipping confirmation because they were missing a letter on my email. After checking the tracking thru AMS to my surprise it said it was delivered. I rushed to my front door and there it was.

Couple of things that I did differently why I may have gotten my shippent before people who ordered before me was:
1) I ordered though the phone with a rep. Doing this may have rushed my bank approval instead of waiting for it to que with their system.
2) My payment plan was not the 5 payment plan. I did a 3 payment plan with the first payment being a bigger amount which allowed me to use the 3 payment plan under $999

So some good news:
Anyone who ordered around Oct 18 or before it will most likely be getting their SX this week. I def got mine in today and I will post some pictures on it after i feed my baby.
Almost there guys the package came in perfect undented condition so im happy. Pics up soon

thanks for the quick response Kidd...now lets grill AMS...but yeah my order done on the 10th oct and i'm an AMS customer too,some kid probably screwed up lol
DJ Maniti 6:40 PM - 14 November, 2012
Man... WTH... I'am happy guys got your units... This sucks now lol. Ill be starring out door like a lil kid on raining day lol.... I am right behind u ASU
DJ Maniti 6:45 PM - 14 November, 2012
Damn my order number starts with W436....ugggg lol
Asu 6:46 PM - 14 November, 2012
yeah i'm grilling them right now...i'm hoping they sent it out and just forgot to send me an e-mail or update my status online
Asu 6:53 PM - 14 November, 2012
mine starts with W4361205 so you see i ordered way before kidd...yeah i'm grilling 'em...i've asked for a manager or supervisor...will let you know results asap
Qoolee Kid 6:57 PM - 14 November, 2012
That does suck huge monkey balls though. I'm thinking maybe it's because I called so many times that they chose to bump me up even though I never requested such a thing. But good luck though, keep us posted.
DJ Maniti 6:58 PM - 14 November, 2012
Yeah the guy I talked with earlier had no clue... I really think there picking random.. Mine is even before yours Asu am in the W43605 area of the deal lol... I thought I was ahead of the game lol... I got mine cheaper than the GC with there 200 off special they have going.. But my GC have there units we dont lol
DeedupDex 7:02 PM - 14 November, 2012
You really cannot go by the day you ordered.

Guys remember that the date you ordered does not land on the day you checked out online or even get off with a rep after talking. You will get a order number regardless but you will NOT be put in that pre-order list until your bank clears and confirms your name/addy eta. This takes a few days to do depending on if their credit department was open or not. So no one really knows how the order is regarding on where you are on the list. I remember when I called to order, they told me I have to wait behind a few people for the credit manager to clear my order before I could be even put on the pre-order list.
Qoolee Kid 7:06 PM - 14 November, 2012
^^ That makes a lot of sense. Now that I think about it, since I've been ordering a lot just in the last few months, I didn't even get a call from the credit department because I've been using the same card information for all my most recent purcahses. So I may just have been placed on the pre-order list just by that reason alone.
DJ Maniti 7:11 PM - 14 November, 2012
Yeah I feel u Deep my account was charged the full amount on the 12th... So am in the waiting game... AMS has been good to me for when I used there payment program or bought the ideas straight out like this one.. Ill give them a little bit more time because I know pioneer dropped the ball on the units

I see what you're saying but that process for me took abt 3 days...and you can tell when that initial payment is pending on your bank account which happened three days after I orded...I know they actually charge you when they ship...so either day it doesn't take 30days to clear...
Asu 7:17 PM - 14 November, 2012
But I'll wait till the end of this week before I cancel and just go to my local guitar center...I'm not gonna wait till the next shipment @ the end of the month which will mean early December delivery

Made some good money last week so "all options are on the table" lol
Qoolee Kid 7:20 PM - 14 November, 2012
Also take into account all the other products that people are ordering on the payment plan. They may have just been catching up on high order volume. Usually when I place an order it's after hours and the credit department calls me first thing the following morning to verify my information. But hopefully they can get a lock on all your guys' orders. AMS is a great company and I've had no issues with them in the past.
Qoolee Kid 7:23 PM - 14 November, 2012
@ Asu... I almost cancelled my AMS order when I sold my NS7. I was gonna take that money straight to GC with their $200 off purchases over $999. But instead of going there right before they closed on a Monday night. I called the 2 local GCs and none had the SX in stock and it was the last day for that $200 promotion. Then the next day I checked AMS to see that my order is being packaged for shipment.

That's why i'm waiting till weeks end incase it's a lack of communication issue...but i'm glad you got yours...just don't break it with all your excitment lol
Maver1ck 7:50 PM - 14 November, 2012
I have emailed them 3 times asking if they have a ship date, but they only respond with "we are waiting to get more in stock any day now." I placed the order on 10/13...

All this hype... This might be the fastest selling Pioneer product in a short time... Def took a page out of the Apple books. Either way people will buy it delayed or not. Good thing I did not sell my DDJ-S1 yet.

I wonder after all the sales are done and hype has settled what plans will pioneer have for it I'm curious to see.
DeedupDex 8:06 PM - 14 November, 2012
I think we all know by now that AMS's stand on this wont change. We all know they wont give anyone a solid date just to be careful. It really isn't AMS's fault. What bothered me was it didn't feel like they were really pressing to get an answer from pioneer.
DJ Baby Raj 8:08 PM - 14 November, 2012
Yeah, AMS got shafted by Pioneer.
DJ Maniti 8:09 PM - 14 November, 2012
Yeah I dont think it was really there fault.. But a mass email on status would have cut down on the calls they where getting on this.. DeedupDex did yours have serato video key?

Hey, Kid. How come AMS bump the line for you? That's not fair for ppl that ordered way before you.

I only waited for AMS 'cos of the 5 Pay plan.
AMS are shipping but slowly so have more patience guys. It will get to you.

<AMS Customer Service Rep>: Michael, Welcome to the AMS Customer Service Center. How may I help you?
<Steve>: Hello my name is steve. How can i help you today?

<Michael>: Hello Steve. Checking on the status of W436XXX

<Michael>: Hello????

<Steve>: ok one give me a minute please.

<Steve>: It is currently still on backorder.

<Michael>: Steve there are people who placed their order after me who have received their order. Why haven't I??

<Steve>: we have not recieved any shipments from pioneer at all.

<Michael>: Wow......every rep tells the customer a different story. Is there no word on when Pioneer will ship???

<Michael>: You guys call this customer service????

<Steve>: still no word from them. we are just as frustrated as everyone who has placed the order.

<Steve>: we can't force the product from pioneer. when they deliver, they deliver.

<Michael>: Yes, I undersatnd what you can't control. But I'm talking about the things you can control. People are receiving their orders that actually placed their order after me. Are you saying that did not happen???

<Steve>: one moment michael i will look into it.

<Michael>: This order was shipped...W4378561

<Steve>: ok my supervisor is looking into it, i will get back to you as soon as i hear something.

<Michael>: Thanks for trying

<Michael>: Still there?

<Steve>: yeah

<Steve>: we have the info of both orders and we are looking into it. this is not usually how we do buisness. my supervisors are looking to see if there was some sort of computer error in the warehouse.

<Michael>: There is a DJ forum out there and the DJ's talk to each other. I know you can't control shipments coming in, but you can control shipments going out. It gets frustrating when things like this happen.

<Steve>: I know, thats why i said they are looking into what is happening with the computers in the warehouse. I wish i could do something for you, or make this situation right for you.

@DJKayce - I have no idea how or why I got bumped up. After reading all the posts here, maybe it's luck, maybe it's human error, we don't know. Hopefully the rest of those that pre-ordered get their units soon.

One thing for sure though is AMS doesn't waste time in shipping out the units as soon as they arrive in their warehouse(s). I saw my order was being packed for shipment and I was debating if I should expedite the shipment to 2-day or next day, but the CSR couldn't tell me if the order was being shipped out of NJ or NV. So I waited a few hours and saw that there was tracking # available and it read estimated delivery November 12th which was almost a week. So I called AMS to see if I could still switch the shipping method but it was already out of the warehouse.

+1 on this. I now truly believe they do a good job on shipping them out asap once they get them from pioneer.

Btw did you also do a phone order Qoolee Kid??
Qoolee Kid 10:43 PM - 14 November, 2012
I guess it's safe to say this first batch had vouchers as mine did too. Hopefully the rest of you that pre-ordered before me get a voucher.
Qoolee Kid 10:45 PM - 14 November, 2012
@DeedupDex - No, I placed my order online. There was a hold for the first payment in my account for a couple of days then it dropped off. Then charged once the order was being prepped for shipment.

Wow... I love AMS, but sometimes their CSRs can't answer simple questions and they beat around the bush. If an order doesn't go through smoothly, then good luck. All the times I called, I only talked to one rep that gave me a reasonable explanation of what the delay was, instead of just saying "we haven't received any updates or shipments from Pioneer" or "we don't know."

Jumbo650 11:20 PM - 14 November, 2012
Has anyone gotten a shipment from zzounds?? I pre ordered on the 10th and still nothing. I thought that AMS and Zzounds use the same warehouse.
Asu 12:18 AM - 15 November, 2012
THANKS FOR HELPING US OUT KIDD

But i hope someone isn't getting fired for this...cause an order placed on the 29th and then arriving in San Diego on the 12th is mind-blowing due to earlier pre-orders.

my second theory is kidd got on their nerves and they got tired of hearing his high pitched voice so they bumped him up & shipped him an SX just to shut him up and stop the 5 calls per day he was making lol
Qoolee Kid 3:08 AM - 15 November, 2012
^^^ well that could definitely be it!!! LOL
CalVic 8:46 AM - 15 November, 2012
Interesting, The UK Have been having big issues with shipments. The UK aren't receiving ANY stock until the 26th and that's from Pioneers mouth. However some retailers have secured stock from elsewhere and I received a phone call saying I was in the allocation of the new stock they had received and will be delivered today, Obviously I'm happy as larry, But certainly feel for those that have yet to receive a pre-order

Pioneer have really stuffed this up.
Maver1ck 1:50 PM - 15 November, 2012
So the status on the order now says "Automatic CC Auth" but if I click on the order number the unit still says "Backordered." Any ideas what the first status change means? I may have to buy something else since my old cdj and mixer set-up has already been sold. What should I buy that would not be a waste of money and would serve as a backup once the DDJ-SX arrives? I was thinking a rane 62 but then I remembered that it would not run the serato dj software. Would the Pioneer XDJ-AERO be a good backup?
Asu 2:20 PM - 15 November, 2012
Only the DDJ-SX can run Serato DJ right now...but other controller support is coming later check on the serato DJ page under controllers...you may have to wait till spring 2013 at the most for some controllers...so choose wisely...meanwhile serato DJ is getting an update...wonder what they're gonna add or fix
Maver1ck 2:28 PM - 15 November, 2012
Okay, it looks like the ergo and the s1 are the only pioneer controllers that are going to get the update. I was thinking the aero would be the best backup because of its flexibility to run of iOS and usb.

yeah but keep in mind, if you use a DJ intro controller then u need to pay $199 for serato DJ upgrade...
DJ Maniti 4:54 PM - 15 November, 2012
Hey guys anybody with a update today?
Asu 5:43 PM - 15 November, 2012
Yes looks like if you still want to use the Payment plan...you're gonna have to wait till early December for deliverly...AMS sent me 3 e-mails after a couple of calls about actual deliverly of more units.

They will receive a shipment last week of this month for sure to cover all pre-orders...the ealier units received as i told you guys wasn't enough to cover us all...

I decided to be patient with AMS cause they've been good to alot of us here in the past...only kidd seems to have jumped the line due to a glitch in the system :-) which they apologized for.

Pioneer seems to have under estimated the demand for this unit thus the shortages.
DeedupDex 5:50 PM - 15 November, 2012
If it makes you guys feel better. The wait might have been a good thing. I've tried all night to manipulate all the bugs everyone is having with the unit under these forums and I cannot duplicate anything. I have not even updated the firmware on it yet and out of the box there aren't any problems so far. From the platters to the mic to any other bugs seen on the help forums section I have not ran across. The build on my SX was Oct 2012 and maybe they delayed enough to fix some of these things?? Im really starting to believe the recent ones shipped were a second better updated batch than the early ones. Maybe its just me but I really feel that way.

That's true,the batches coming later have alot of issues resolved so i'm looking at it that way too...so i've decided to wait a few more weeks...i changed my shipping to next day air too just to have it asap.

A wise man once said "Patience pays" :-)
Qoolee Kid 6:02 PM - 15 November, 2012
@DeedupDex +1 on that... I have absolutely no issues with my SX either, as far as all the known bugs that have been expressed on this forum. platter response is tight, mic sounds as good if not better as any other mixer/controller I own or have used in the past. Again my only gripe with the SX are the stiff line faders and the loose pitch faders.

@Asu... at least you now have a solid answer from AMS rather than playing this waiting/guessing game. Good decision on expediting your shipping! I wish I was able to do the same, then I would have had the SX last Wednesday.

Yeah once my kid fell asleep I pretty much set everything up and mixed with this thing for about 4-5 hours till the morning. No firmware updates either. Everything was on point. Im actually glad now that I waited for a "better" batch. I also have big hands and tried to hit the pitch faders (non mirrored image rants from others) on "accident" and it just wasn't happening.

I find the stiff faders to be not so bad and good for control. The pitch faders could be a little more solid but I found miixing on the fly was just too easy and no probs with them.

Well, for my style, I like to do stab skratches and volume fade skratches so the tension makes it tricky. But I'll just hit them with some Deoxit5 and tell you guys if it helps any.

thought you had traktor pro already Diaz?
diezdiaz 9:27 PM - 15 November, 2012
Traktor pro, but not traktor scratch pro.
Bought an x1 during the summer because it said it came with pro, didn't understand that there's a difference. Another reason I'm not to big a fan of dealing with NI, their licensing is annoying as hell. They burned me when I bought a used audio 4 too, bought a complete time code audio 4 kit, but the previous owner never un registered their license. Annoying to buy a physical object and then be told "well tough shit, you don't get the software"
Asu 10:07 PM - 15 November, 2012
oh ok,i'm using traktor pro too for now cause it's plug and play with alot of hardware out there...but my serato DJ Library is ready too....do you know of a simple program that can convert traktor library with cue points?....i figuredout how to move my playlists as they are into Serato but the cue points are gone in serato ;-( (i already re-scanned grids for serato though)

Damn I ordered mine from AMS on 11/3, I got my first wedding gig coming up on the 1st of December. Hopefully I get it before then. Or I may just cancel my order and get it from GC next week.
DJ Boom Bap 1:14 AM - 16 November, 2012
P-TraX, I hope you have a great computer. I have been using my SX everyday since the 2nd and I get at least 2 audio dips a night. I'm running a MBP 2.53 Ghz, 4 gb ram. 10.6.8. Just a heads up. Also, if you are planning on using a mic with the SX, you need to pay a lot of attention to the gains.

Good luck!

What up boom bap! Yeah I just bought my 2.9ghz i7 8gb of ram 750gb hdd mid 2012 mbp last week. I hope that's good enough. Yeah, I really need to get the sx so I can mess with the mic stuff. AMS is screwing me right now, definitely going to GC next week if ams doesn't ship it out to me by next Tuesday.

Wassup guys...

Just got confirmation that my SX was delivered to the GC near my house. I ordered it on Tuesday from Tucson, AZ. Can't wait to pick it up.

So, it looks like the best route to take is thru GC. I don't believe one word from the reps at AMS. GC gets more units than they do so your chances of getting one are better.

Good for you Riff...i'm waiting due to the payment plan with AMS...plus i got gear i'm using right now.

But yeah guitar Center had that exclusive deal with Pioneer so that definately played a part in them having more units when everyone else got a few...

i'm choosing to be patient that way i get a better batch too...Happy spinning otherwise mate
Dj Riff Stylez 7:46 PM - 16 November, 2012

So I ordered mine 11/1 from AMS, and I have been getting the total run around from AMS. No one seems to know anything from that place, despite drilling them to ask their sales rep at Pioneer.

So I emailed Pioneer, and after getting the run around there and pushing some more, I finally got this answer:

"More units are expected to come in early next month. However, we cant confirm any specific dealers ETA.

Sincerely,

Nicole
Customer Service Representative"

I don't need it, necessarily, this is my first unit I bought to start practicing DJing, but it still irritates me that there are units just sitting in that shit hole called Guitar Center. The main reason I went to AMS was for the free extended warranty - does anyone have experience with this? I'm debating just cancelling my order and purchasing it from somewhere else.
D-Twizzle 11:19 PM - 16 November, 2012
I called AMS to see how long it would take to get if i pre-ordered now, and they said they have over 100 units to fill first ahead of mine, so it's going to be a while and they couldn't give me an exact date. I'm guessing over a month tho.
good luck
DJ Baby Raj 11:20 PM - 16 November, 2012
Yeah I feel your pain, I just called AMS and some dude who sounds 12 tells me he doesn't know, just pisses me off!

I have only adjusted to 2ms latency ever. I have always had this problem with itch. I just power through it. Also, 60% of the time I have the internet on through Ethernet cable, so most of it is my fault.

But, ever since I got the SX, I don't use the internet. I also use an external HD, but that spins at 7500

I bought mine from that "shit hole." I've had mine since November 1st and I got it for $799...meanwhile you bought it from a company that MUST be better than Guitar Center because you chose to order from them, yet you're complaining about the company? And with all the complaints you haven't cancelled yet?

Felonyruckus 6:02 PM - 17 November, 2012
hahaha...nope sorry I'm not affiliated with GC but, thats where i bought mine for cheaper than anywhere else i could get it. Actually I was going to buy from PSSL, I'm lucky enough to have both PSSL and GC close to me and PSSL said they had only enough for their pre-orders.

And, the GC employee actually said he wasn't allowed to buy one yet because of the demand.
Maver1ck 4:22 PM - 19 November, 2012
I have pretty much given up on the SX, I think I am going to pick up something else in the mean time. What would be a good backup? If I get the S1 would the library be okay to share once I get the SX? Would a standalone mixer be better (DJM-T1 or Kontrol Z2)?

why not wait unless you have nothing to use...a DJM T1 costs the same as DDJ-SX and you get quite less...just hang in there man...2 more weeks at the most

the Library is the same...no worries...but i'm gonna wait...plus i already got traktor mapping so i can use it on Traktor too :-) although i'd say don't expect fluid functionality with Traktor since it's native to Serato DJ.

That is my problem, since I pre-ordered back in October I listed my CDJ and Mixer for sale. The CDJ and Mixer sold instantly. I have a gig on Dec 8 so I wanted to have my library analyzed and at least a few weeks to test and get familiar with the SX. I feel like if I keep waiting I will be cutting it pretty close and I still haven't received a solid date.

This weekend I stopped by Guitar Center and saw that they had 1 SX still in a box. I immediately grabbed the first sales guy I saw and told him I wanted to take it home. Then the nightmare began... I had the $200 and the guy said he could not allow me to use it since he would be selling the SX for less than cost. I told him other people were able to use it successfully to buy the SX, but whatever I was willing to give up the coupon.

Then the guy said that serial for the SX was marked as a "demo" so he wasn't sure if he could sell it. He went looking for managers to see what he could do. After waiting there for a good 30mins or so he was unable to figure out how to sell me the unit.

I couldn't use the coupon and I couldn't even pick up the unit a full price. SO close but yet SO far. I was touching the sx! FML lol
Maver1ck 1:31 PM - 20 November, 2012
Have they told you guys 2 weeks? Every time I contact AMS I never get a definitive shipping date.

Whoa Maverick... Ive been told 2 weeks at the most.... My unit has been pre-order since the 10th like alot of us... U might to pick up something do your gig then take it back.. I have gig in Dec as well so I like have to use a friend sl2 with my 1210s to hold me over
Maver1ck 1:49 PM - 20 November, 2012
It would be nice to get it by at least the 30th. Then I would have a week to test and get familiar.

Hey, Kid. How come AMS bump the line for you? That's not fair for ppl that ordered way before you.

I only waited for AMS 'cos of the 5 Pay plan.
AMS are shipping but slowly so have more patience guys. It will get to you.


That's funny, I also ordered on the 8th, mine came in yesterday from Nevada, I live in NYC. I haven't opened it yet so I don't know if the video code is in there.

DJ Baby Raj 5:40 PM - 21 November, 2012
So I just spoke to Dan from AMS on their Facebook page. Seems he knows a lot of detailed information of the units. So heres what he says:

"Hey Chris, We have more coming in on Friday or Monday. The problem is they dont ship them out all at once, we get about 40 at a time. We are scheduled to get them all by December 7th but since you ordered yours a while ago I think yours should ship out before that. Sorry for the wait I know its annoying but you should have it soon.

Seems to me they sold the units without having enough units on order.....very misleading with dates...
DJ Maniti 6:41 PM - 24 November, 2012
I am actually one the few that didn't do payment program with AMS I paid for the unit since they matched GC discounted price and its never been a issue with AMS before.. I would shop with AMS again no problem. The issue came with Pioneer under producing the product (which is smart business wise but sucks for us lol).. My local GC only had 5 units on release day and have been getting a couple units per week. Seems like no one had these units in abundance.
MusicDan 7:12 PM - 24 November, 2012
Below is my order history with AMS. They are a legit company, and the payment plan works great. This has nothing to do with their payment plan. Most of these items were purchased with the payment plan, and most went out in the same day or next depending at what time I ordered it. The one cancelled order was for the Xone DX, dodged a bullet there didn't I?

I agree, they are a legitimate company. And it is not their fault that they do not have the product. But, it is their fault for not communicating with the customer. If you call them and talk to 5 different reps, you will get 5 different answers. Then, they ship out an order to a customer who clearly placed an order after people who placed their order earlier, and all they can say is "we don't know how this happened". Accurate information would put a lot of peoples concerns to rest....ijs.
Dj Nyce 5:53 AM - 26 November, 2012
you guys are bitching and whining. most stores do not have to do a payment plan. they are the one taking all the risk. you should be grateful that a few pro audio stores have this feature. if it wasn't for this feature some of you would be ass out.

obviously the sx is a high demand product and ams isn't the only out of stock.

that being said i would order from AMS and zZounds any day.

Let me get this straight.....so you're saying that since they offer a payment plan, we as paying customers should not speak on the level of service we get? Now that's some bullshit! The payment plan is a part of the way AMS does business and I have taken full advantage of the way they do business. That does NOT mean I say nothing when something is wrong. All any of us wants is a timeline on when we might receive our order, which in my case, has been on preorder for almost 2 months. It is understood that AMS does not make the product. What is wrong with communicating with your customer?

This thread is full of people who have their product and share their experiences with us and people like me who are still trying to get their product. Obviously, you don't have this issue. I've read plenty of your comments in other threads and you always seem to be helpful, but your comments here are rediculous. If people want to "Bitch and Whine", they have every right to do so.

I agree....I typically get my stuff from GC because they have never let me down...earlier I stated I would be weary of the other avenues such as AMS after this discussion. Simply because I feel they and others fell down with communication regarding timelines to their customers.
I am glad to hear the "bitching and whinning" as it may prevent future problems for me!

Quick question. I ordered a Oddesey Coffin that was made for the NS6. I want to fit the DDJ SX in it. Will that work, or should I return it? Im on backorder since the 15th for the DDJ SX AMS. They did respond on thier facebook page stating that they are recieving shipments this week so I have my fingers crossed. I hate borrowing my friends gear for gigs.
DJ Baby Raj 4:50 PM - 26 November, 2012
I'll bitch and whine, so what. I've waited this long and I'm sure most of of us are over it now. Hoping this is our week!
Dj Nyce 4:51 PM - 26 November, 2012
as a paying customer you have every right to bitch and whine. that's not what i'm talking about. stating that you will never order from ams because you have to wait for the sx which is in short supply because of high demand and pio not mfg enough to meet that demand is silly.

the reason that i mention the payment plan is because that is what separates ams from other retailers. you if you want the sx now, step your bank account game up, cancel your ams order and order it from guitar center. if you can't, then wait for it to ship.

This is exactly why i'm waiting,plus we all know a bunch of first production SXs have issues with the mic preamps and other response issues...the payment plan is the big deal for me with no intrest,no tax + price match....you can't beat the price after getting all three on one order :-) i appreciate this very very much.

anybody else pre order his unit from DJ Depot in canada ?
Qoolee Kid 5:08 PM - 26 November, 2012
I almost cancelled my AMS order and bought from a local warehouse. They don't advertise prices and don't give out pricing over the phone. You have to physically go into the store and talk to them, but they usually have great prices. A couple buddies of mine pre-ordered for $865 OTD and even received the SX on October 30th.

But yes, AMS payment plan does help a lot of people buy the gear they need when they need it. I'll continue to buy from AMS but I just hope that I don't have any issues where I need to get involved with customer service because that department really needs some improvement. But other than this past order, I had no real issues with them.

If there's someone to blame at all, it's Pioneer. But like stated before, it's not really their fault either on a business aspect. Good for them, bad for the consumer. I just hope that none of you sold your primary setup and are currently SOL with no gear to gig with. But it comes with the territory when you buy/pre-order something when it first comes out.

Has something changed in AMS? I didn't know you can Price Match and have the payment plan still. Last time I did that they only allowed it because I didn't know price matched items were supposed to be paid in full. But this was two years ago.
dj-freestyle 5:11 PM - 26 November, 2012
To many variables to buy a piece of equipment that uses software and expect to gig instantly. That seems really relly stupid. Ive had mine since day it came out and ive used it only recently on a gig and had backup near buy. clients pay way to much for you to fail them over bad planning.

Soundlion 5:20 PM - 26 November, 2012
LOL @ Step Up Your Bank Account. Simply just trying to tell everyone. If you cant afford to buy the controller in full, be happy that someone will give it to you as you pay them off, but just shut the eff up until you get it. So he got money ... and pointing and laughing at everyone else.

read it somewhere on the pio forum,they are aware of the issue and fixing it with the newer batches...that's why i said i don't mind waiting...but the supply issue is a pioneer problem not AMS...they seem to have received only a handful of DDJ-SXs...i just spoke to someone @ AMS and she said we should expect some positive results starting this week to next week...it sucks cause it's coming to 2 months for me (pre-ordered on the 10th)....i do have gear right now but wanna switch to something light for mobile gigs...so no rush for me.

But this long wait does put into question the whole pre-order deal if you ask me ;-(

For those that wanna arm twist ams...just tell em to price match guitar center...i think the $200 deal expired but there's a 15%(coupon code:savebig15) off today's cyber sale which is about $150 off the $999 price for the SX....AMS will even price match you upto 45 days after you received your item.

This among other reasons is why I love em.so those that got theirs already can receive $150 back :-) & the rest of us can get price matched.

By the way you guys that have the 5 payment plan may have to switch to the 3payment plan or pay full price upfront to qualify for any price matching...argue for the $200 off,if not use the one i gave you today 15% off @ guitar center,i know many of you are gonna be very happy :-)

Got mine for $799 thru AMS. Price matched. Used the unit for 4 gigs now & no problem at all. Mics sound good. Master output is way too loud which is a plus. Overall, am very happy with the unit.

I told you guys that the 23rd was being way too optimistic. I am tempted to just cancel but I don't know what to get. I guess it is back to cdjs and a mixer.


just hang in there Mav...almost there ;-) just make sure you get pricematched while you're waiting.
DJ Maniti 8:33 PM - 26 November, 2012
From what I was told on Friday is that there expecting a shipment of 60 units this week. At the time I called there were 196 units on back order. The rep said they should have there full shipment of 300 units or so by the first two weeks of December. Not saying this firm but that's what I got from the rep

the payment plan is the big deal for me with no intrest,no tax + price match....you can't beat the price after getting all three on one order :-) i appreciate this very very much.


Has something changed in AMS? I didn't know you can Price Match and have the payment plan still. Last time I did that they only allowed it because I didn't know price matched items were supposed to be paid in full. But this was two years ago.


By the way you guys that have the 5 payment plan may have to switch to the 3payment plan or pay full price upfront to qualify for any price matching...argue for the $200 off,if not use the one i gave you today 15% off @ guitar center,i know many of you are gonna be very happy :-)


Well it's worth a shot... GC has to have them in stock in order for AMS to price match. Which is funny when they don't even have them in stock. But for the 45-day price match, is it guaranteed that they'll price match still?

it's AMS policy to pricematch up to 45 days after you've received your item so you don't miss out :-) ...all that matters is for you to notify them off the % with a link or the store location where the you got that info. they'll price match for sure.

other reasons i love AMS...Never disappointed me before,payment plans,extended free 12 month warranty,no tax (outside New Jersey),free shipping,pricematch upfront or upto 45days of a sale...these guys are really very very fair and after all the above you do save tons of money on all kinds of orders...personally i don't know any other store that has all the above...so i owe it to them to be patient...that's just me.
Asu 9:34 PM - 26 November, 2012
sorry guys 45days is worry free return policy...but if you're on pre-order you can get price matched easy plus all the other goodies i mentioned
Jumbo650 9:42 PM - 26 November, 2012
This is from my Facebook that Zzounds reply:

Thanks for getting in touch with us. Right now we are heavily backordered on the DDJ SX. We have almost 200 pre-orders for it, and several shipment dates in December. We are expecting shipments from Pioneer on Dec 1st, 5th and 7th that will fulfill the vast majority of these backorders.

We fulfill backorders on a first come - first serve basis. The earliest orders that were placed will get the first shipments. Unfortunately, we can't tell you exactly what your place is in line. Since you ordered the item early on, however, it is likely that your order will be fulfilled by one of the earlier shipments.

If there are any changes to these dates, we will update them on our website. You can also give us a call at 1-800-996-8637 or send an e-mail to service@zzounds.com if you have further questions about the order. Please keep in mind that these shipment dates are given to us by Pioneer and are subject to change if Pioneer misses a shipment or reschedules delivery of the products to us.
DJ Maniti 9:45 PM - 26 November, 2012
Ok guys here's the latest... A buddy of mine that order on the first just called to get discount and was told they will honor the GC offer but if he does take the 799 deal he would be bumped in line and then its 3 payments. So the rep gave him 100 off and he still gets to keep his place in line and the 5 payments program too. Now I just called myself and was told they have order of 20 coming in either tomorrow or wed.. The rest are coming thru out the 1st week in Dec... If I hear anything else I will post
spicaly 9:51 PM - 26 November, 2012
wondering how many if any of the video vouchers are available still, part of the reason people pre-ordered was to get that savings ($150) and if thats missing im sure some will be upset

Thats the main reason I pre ordered. because of the Voucher.
diezdiaz 10:47 PM - 26 November, 2012
Just called AMS, said without a copy of the coupon they can't honor that discount but they did honor the 15 percent off that's currently available at GC.

The rep also said they've got around two hundred backorders, and my order on October fifteenth is at the top. Thought some of you might want to know that
Qoolee Kid 11:51 PM - 26 November, 2012
I just did a price match with AMS, they honored the price match since I provided the link of GC's 15% coupon. So I'm on hold right now so I can have that discount applied to my order.

so the 15% is helping out then....glad i didn't misread the price match even after you got your SX kid...correct me if i'm wrong anywhere...but glad i helped out...everyone should take advantage of it today the 15% off

Yeah for once this forum actually provided some useful information instead of it's usual useless belligerence heh. Good tip asu
Qoolee Kid 12:08 AM - 27 November, 2012
HAHA! Wow... So since I price matched online to cover my @$$, I told the CSR that I'm trying to price match with Guitar Center. She put me on hold and told me they can only do a 10% discount/refund. Then I proceeded to tell her I already got approved for a price match online, she put me on hold again, came back and told me I have to call in next time (which I did). As if she was scolding me because I price matched online and made her feel like an idiot for telling me 10% initially. In the end I get my 15%, so $150 knocked off my next payment.

Also she was talking to me as if I didn't even receive my order. I played it off for a few seconds thinking maybe they might try to send me another unit. But then she was too stupid for me not to let her know what was really going on. Thanks Asu for the heads up!
Asu 12:32 AM - 27 November, 2012
Hey we've never all met but you guys are my DJ brethren...call it a x-mas present...$150 is alot of money if you ask me
Felonyruckus 4:24 AM - 27 November, 2012
You all CAN complain about not getting your DDJ-SX because you pre-ordered but, most certainly you can't complain about the prices. I would hate for you guys all to be DJs in my area because you must undersell yourselves. I bought my DDJ-SX as an investment to my means of income and I reflect that in my prices for gigs.

If you are a serious DJ then $150 even $200 is something I just look at as money available right now. In the end you should all be claiming this is a tax write off. I was going to buy the DDJ-SX at $999 or $799 either way, I save that money now or save it later towards tax season which is right around the corner.

I feel for some of the guys that bought through AMS but, pre-order wasn't a guarantee of delivery, it was a guarantee of getting the product based on the availability of the product through the reseller. It's also no the fault of Pioneer, they made a product that is popular but, making a product doesn't mean they knew going in how popular it would be...could you imagine if they made a million units of the Pioneer Ergo? They would have lost their asses.

The people I don't apologetic feeling for are the people that complain that they don't have their product even though their local reseller has it in stock...don't complain, cancel your order and buy it from the local reseller. You then have your new tool of your trade with you and you can start practicing immediately and booking your gigs to help pay off the unit.

The other people that have complained are the people that don't like the customer service they have received from AMS, by keeping your order with them, you empower them. Remove your order and it hurts them in THEIR ALMIGHTY dollar and hopefully they change.

I don't see how you come to this conclusion about a group of people on a forum...very ignorant/arrogant & condescending statement stated without proper facts/personal info of each DJ on here.

Also,no one has complained about the price as far as i know...i was just telling folks to take advantage of any discounts as we wait which was a success by the way...a couple of guys saved $150-$200 off just today.

Some of us here are patiently waiting due to other financial commitments/previous orders.the payment plan does comes in handy when spreading out payments.it's the lack of accurate info that everyone was mostly ranting about ...i do agree with you that if you don't wanna pay the $999 upfront then you can't complain about a local retailer having the unit in stock while AMS doesn't...
DJ Maniti 12:35 PM - 27 November, 2012
Guys..... I have the awaiting shipping message... Yesss. Looks like some of us are about to get our equipment...
Felonyruckus 1:25 PM - 27 November, 2012
is it ignorant or arrogant to say that if you are a working DJ that $150-$200, isn't made up in one gig? If you wait an extra month you can have at the very least 2 gigs WITH the equipment that you want so badly and make up the difference. To say that I'm condescending when, I'm saying that they undersell themselves isn't condescending at all. I'm saying they should and could ask for the money that they are worth. Condescending would me telling people that they AREN'T worth the money, I'm doing the opposite and telling they SHOULD ask for what they are worth.

I read on the Pio forum that you shouldn't use a Mic below 600ohms (my sure wireless is exactly that plus it does have output level control on the wireless receiver)...i also read that it's better for the mic to have a way for you to have some kind of control on the input level into the SX...The pre-amp is very sensitive to high volume inputs...triming the channel level alone on the SX is not enough.

I do shows to where there are peformers, so I use a small Behringer mixer which makes my mic's sound great. I will continue to use my mixer.

I use an external mixer as well. But I used the SX by itself out at a couple of gigs and had no issues with it. But, just as a backup, I bring the mixer along just in case (God forbid) something goes wrong and need a quick drop in those emergency situations.

Got mine for $799 through AMS. I wasn't even trying, I didn't even ask for a discount. The sales rep messed up and he tried to take it back but I asked for a manager. He came back on and said that he spoke to his manager and that he would honor that price.

dj-freestyle 4:28 PM - 28 November, 2012
@austin, it takes time and its not 1200's but i can cut pretty good on it and it really just takes some time. Its weird when you use your tables and then go back. Takes a few to get adjusted again. its a learnign curve for sure
AustinG 4:30 PM - 28 November, 2012
Yeah I have like 2 club gigs experience on cdj's and I like those... I recently sold my NS7 because the knobs and faders were showing major wear (I put that kit to work)... and now I'm really close to pulling the trigger on the sx. It has to sound somewhat close to CDJ's or 1200's though right?
dj-freestyle 4:32 PM - 28 November, 2012
Yes for me its a cross between a ns6 platters and cdjs platters. I had a ns6 so for me thats what it feels like. you wont be dissapointed. Ive got 28 years in the game so i feel like ive seen it all and its dope for sure and sounds good.

I seen ceaser's vids and I notice the scratching sounds... just ok. I know it's a demo vid and all but with the NS7, it sounded close to 1200's.

My partner has an NS6 and I absolutely hate that kit. I don't know what it is but the platters are way too loose for me. I'll play with his 6 some more and make a decision from there... I with Sam Ash or GC would get one in so I can demo it.

with the right mic it's not an issue at all...but it's true the SXs pre-amps are more sensitive than usual...i suggest bringing along a small mixer if you're Mic is not compatible
DJKayce 1:58 AM - 29 November, 2012
Mic works fine on mine. Am using Shure PGX wireless with SM58 mic. XLR & 1/4 cables works fine. Just make sure to leave the MIC channel on thru. No A/B. No need for small mixer. Am happy with the unit.
DeedupDex 2:00 AM - 29 November, 2012
Asu from what I remember when I ordered mine, I wanted to switch it to overnight a week after my pre-order for the SX cleared. The rep told me that I would be put in the back of the line if I changed anything that had to do with any changes. I am hoping they were wrong and I hope you still have your place bro.

Just Mike im pretty sure yours and everyone in this forums will get the vouchers

For those worried about having a gig and dealing with the SX "learning curve" before they take it out, It took me almost 2-3 hours of playing around with it b4 being comfortable enough to gig with it.

They came out with a statement about the Mic section...but i don't think they'd publically admit a problem when many people have their mics work just fine...one guy on the pio forum even found a radio shack $40 mic that worked perfect...i think we as DJs need to get into the habit of reading up on all specs of equipment we buy...i personally do this alot now.

hey Dex,yeah looks like i was bumped when i changed my shipping to priority overnight and the rep didn't fix the position after the changes were saved...but i'm back on top now...i took the issue all the way to a supervisor...so i should get one from next week's shipment.

When I got my price match my rep did something different, he didn't change my initial payment he adjusted my second payment so that I would not loose my place on the wait list.

fedex just dropped mine off, installing the video plugin right now, looks like theres still plenty of vouchers so theres one less thing for people to gripe about.
people arent kidding about the size, shit haha. i have it on a rack next to a single turntable and a kontrol x1 and theres no more table space left. it just almost fits in my chrome bag though. ive got one the larger roll top bags from and if the bag had just another couple inches on top id be able to seal it

Damn even Diaz got his...you guys test the mic section and give some feed back...i wanna use the SX for all mobile gigs...Mic is very important for me and most of you on here i know.
StevenWayne 9:40 PM - 29 November, 2012
Also, if your mic works good, please confirm the manufacturer date on the unit. I highly doubt pioneer can fix a problem like the mic issue and have newer models shipped with the correction done that fast
DJ Maniti 9:46 PM - 29 November, 2012
Has anybody on here gotten any mic issues? I will test out my mic out when I get home to see if i get any issues...
StevenWayne 10:20 PM - 29 November, 2012
its weird how some follks are saying their mics work fine, but ALOT are saying its not. i'm wondering if the ones that are saying theirs is ok, if they're testing it thoroughly or simply testing it in their bedroom setup and thinking its fine.
D-Twizzle 10:27 PM - 29 November, 2012
I think it's because of the input gain that can vary from different mics

not sure if this is the case cuz i read on the forums here that some folks said they have Shures and have no problems, but others with the same mics and have problems.
dj-freestyle 11:51 PM - 29 November, 2012
Its a gain issue but the reality is they never should have put that in the unit. They screwed up. big time. No other pioneer mixers or controllers with this issue so nobody can say different
DJ Maniti 12:45 AM - 30 November, 2012
Guys so far with my Shure SM48 mic no issue at all... I test thru out the week... Loving the unit... Really no learning curve at all.....

Like i stated earlier Steve, looks like this time everyone's gonna have to read up on the specs of the mic section and use the proper Mic...like freestyle said Pioneer said it's a gain issue...the SX mic pre-amps don't like a very hot signal...download the manual the specs are in there...my shure wireless setup fortunately meets the specs...phew!
Asu 4:03 AM - 30 November, 2012
oh by the way i use Shure's ULXS4 wireless receiver, with a BETA 58A Cardioid Dynamic Microphone w/ ULX2 Handheld Transmitter ...the system has volume control too for extra tweaks :-) cost me about $950 but you can now get it for about $750 but sounds excellent and rarely picks up feedback.
StevenWayne 4:25 AM - 30 November, 2012
I hear ya, I'm just trying to gather as much info as I can now so once the unit arrives, I know what I need to do. I use Shure wired and wireless mics, I believe the sm58 and a pg wired mic, so I'd rather use those but if I need to get a new mic then I will, I just like the way my shures sound
salsadj 5:39 AM - 30 November, 2012
Mine came in today, voucher included. Won't be able to test out the mic until tomorrow. I have a PGX2/SM58 and a PG24/PG58 I'll test them both and report back.
Asu 2:08 PM - 30 November, 2012
some one here said there's a -10db switch under the mic head (probably for the wireless units only) if any of you get into some problems with too high an output...
dj-freestyle 4:43 PM - 30 November, 2012
There is a switch under the head, i just switched mine over to test.

Tested the mic. PGX4/SM58 plugged into channel 3 via xlr sounded like A$$. Flipped the switch under the capsule to -10db and crystal clear! It's pioneer issue no question. I've had this mic for three years and used it at literally hundreds of gigs infront of hundreds of people and never once have I had to touch the switch.

Thanks for info, I have the same mic. Where is the -10db switch located? I twisted off the head but don't see a switch there, although I do see a sticker that says opening up the mic voids warranty lol.

Actually @ -10 db,the mic should sound better than -3db which is the default setting i think...the output of the SX from what I've heard is really high (105 to107db if i remember correctly) so this balances out well...and will help with those crazy times people yell so loud into the mic...it just sucks when your mic isn't compatible though...hope i get mine delivered this week :-) thanks for that link kid

I unscrewed the same thing you did initially which was the spit collector screen :D. It's the next unscrewable thing below that. You unscrew the actual transmitter from the whole mic head. You'll see what looks like a mini circuit board. The 0db/-10db switch is a white little recessed thing. Good luck.
StevenWayne 2:39 AM - 3 December, 2012
Thanks salsa! #voidingwarranty
salsadj 5:29 AM - 3 December, 2012
I didn't see a void warranty sticker where I unscrewed mine. Odd that they would place an important function like setting the gain where it would void the warranty. I guess shure and pioneer don't mind that pairing their stuff together without adjusting the gain makes it sound like two A$$ cheeks flapping loudly.

Page 3 of the PGX user manual shows exactly what part to unscrew. I think your warranty should be safe. Good luck

Hey Guys. I received my DDJ-SX and video voucher. The whole time I used my NS7, I have used a windows machine with no problem...HP Envy i5 2.6ghz Quad Core processor, 8 GB Ram, 750 GB Hard Drive, with almost no issus. Every "blue moon", I would get some type of spike that would freeze itch and kill the music for a few seconds. So, I attempted to use my "powerful" windows machine with the DDJ-SX. It ran great!! The DDJ-SX is a beast. The output sound in unreal!! But......my windows had long periods where the cpu usage was very high to where I could notice performance issues...very scary, but no major issues. So, I finally did what I have heard on this website for years on end....I bought a MAC. Mountain Lion, i7, 2.6ghz Quad Core, 8 GB ram, 750 HD.....$2300 smackeroos! But....WOW, what a difference....Flawless operation. I fought it for so long....What was I thinking?!?!

Now, about the Mic output......Like I said before, the unit is very powerful. I plugged my AKG Mic into the DDJ-SX and used it to do a show with peformers, yelling in the MIC all night. I had to tweak the trim on the unit and the Mic base, but after that, it was perfect.

Overall great unit ,which is 1/3 the weight of the NS7, now paired with a great MBP. One happy customer here!

I am using an AKG WMS40. The only thing I dont like about it is, the base as dual quarter inch jacks outputs each mic. I also use a dual Galaxy system that I use when I need more than two mics. The are very inexpensive, and they have only one quarter inch output for both mics. Both units have volume/trim controls for each mic on the base as well. I had no issues with either set.

Happy for you mike,i'm hoping to receive mine this week,i'll report back...i switched from windows in 2007 man and the difference was night and day...i just love the stability of the mac OS...i think it all boils down to the way they implement execusion in the software...gonna sell my 2010 mac (Core 2 duo,750HD,8 gig,2.8ghz,512 Nvidia card,anyone intrested,pm me if you wanna buy it) for exactly the one you just bought to enable faster video encoding/rendering/future proof my self :-)

Guys anyone who wants a Odyssey case I went to planet dj they are having a sale on the SX case for $255. Sign up on their planet gear club on top of the main page they will email you a 10% code. I got the case for $229 out the door with free shipping no tax. This is the revised 2nd batch of cases also. just a heads up


that's some good info Dex...i need one for my SX anyway


Yeah I asked them if it was the second revised version and two diff people confirmed it was. They are just waiting for them to get it due to the LA/LB port pier strike. They also had the black ones for an extra $20. Its the cheapest anywhere.

AMS is still reporting 179 units backordered as of this morning. I ordered 10/29 and have not received mine yet. Just wanted to give an update for those that are still waiting....
Qoolee Kid 4:01 PM - 7 December, 2012
Yup I need to get a case. Already did 10 gigs with no case. I'm using the case for my wireless mics to elevate the SX but it looks stupid. Even more so when it's just sitting on a table by itself. LOL

yup still back ordered,the strike at the port isn't helping either,man those guys get paid so much but i guess they want more...by alot i mean the lowest employee rate was $21 per hour on the west coast 2005,i know it's the same union...used to work there under contract while goin to college too...

Kidd i envy you,but i'll have my day lol,but man that Case is 1/3 the price of the ddj-sx,kinda expensive if you ask me $250 - $299 for a small coffin is a rip off lol...but we gotta have it.

I feel you I order mine from planet dj a few weeks back at the time they said the shipment would be in on Dec 5 they then sent another email two days ago saying the 18th... FUDGE....

Currently I use a tripod table stand that I purchased for a projector it lifts up pretty high. Similar to this but my top is wood.
(www.allsportsystems.com) I actually like this set up a lot, controller on the stand under it laptop stand and hard drive sits on laptop stand or can go behind sx so it looks clean but want the case to protect my investment. So for now I take the pioneer box as my case. Makes me look cheap.... But controller is protected. FYI the table with tripod and controller fit's in a roll around bag and I can even throw in my laptop backpack.... Talk about mobile.

The LA/LB Port strike is over. I heard they get paid over $40 +
Asu 11:23 PM - 7 December, 2012
Dex $40 is for the pros who've been there for a while but i had a security gig there and trust me when i tell you we were the lowest paid @ $21 per hour :-) with 2 hours OT everyday,do the math...the guys in those huge cranes at the docks that unload ships were @ $75-$80/hr...man i'd love a gig down there and spin on the weekends too lol

But at this point i guess the SX is coming in next week since the strike is over...alot of guys like Diaz haven't even reported back here lol...talk about stuck in DDJ-SX wonderland lol

If the ddjsx is stuck at port, then vendors cannot get their merchandise to sell/ship to you.
Strike=no work=no merchandise release=you wait.

Funkytownstopsix 1:22 PM - 12 December, 2012
Since I have the controller I will tell you that it is well worth the wait. FUDGE a NS it can't touch this controller. If you ordered it just wait if you have to rent then rent. Now there is more demand for this controller, unless your cool with trying to get it next year then I would wait. Like you guys I am dealing with back order crap but for that oddesy case I too am waiting and waiting so I undertand trust me, I understand. I was told I would receive it on the 5th got email saing now 18th this could go on and on........Case is no DDJ-SX but damn that's my point it should take that long.... Anyway I would wait until I got it. If you decied you want to go another route I have two MK2s and 57 for sale get at me.

I gotta tell you guys, the DDJ-SX is "The Shyt". I have a Numark NS7 also and other than being able to record the microphone thru the software, the NS7 cannot touch this controller. Plus, the DDJ-SX equals 1/3 the weight of the NS7. I recently had a fellow DJ at my house who firmly believes that using Technic 1200's is the only way to DJ. After 10 minutes on the DDJ-SX, he was doing things that he never could on his turntables. He is ready to buy a DDJ-SX. Yes, it pissed myoff when I had to wait a month to get it, but it was well worth the wait. I haven't decided what to do with my NS7 yet. I may just keep it as a backup.
Funkytownstopsix 3:51 PM - 12 December, 2012
+1 again...... Also most issues other than the mic issue and auto play have been corrected in the Serato DJ update and firmware update. I don't have any issues with the mic it works great even if I didn't I understand what you have to do to get it work if you have a mic that you can turn the gain down on. New stuff comes with new issues but on the real this thing is beast and really fun to play with. You wouldn't undestand if you don't have it but when you do you will be happy you waited.

I do shows and Karaoke also. That can be a problem for the DDJ-SX, if you constantly have to adjust the gains for different singers. Adjusting the master for music is also going to mess up your mic settings. I just use the small Beheringer mixer to get that mic volume that I want. If I was only DJing a gig and only needed one mic, I would run it thru the DDJ-SX. Thru adjusting the gains on the base and the DDJ-SX, my mic sounds fine.
Funkytownstopsix 6:57 PM - 12 December, 2012
I am talking about the wireless mic, wired mic works great for me and on my wireless mic I can make adustments on the mic itself it's a one time thing not everytime if you can do so. I didn't have to do anything for my mic's I was refering to what I read on the fourms about the issue. As it has been said not every unit has this issue.
DJ Johnny S 8:48 PM - 12 December, 2012

DeedupDex 8:55 PM - 12 December, 2012
I will also vouch for the controller given that it arrives to you with no factory defects. It is worth every bit of wait. I understand the frustration of some that sold their main equipment to wait for this controller. I also understand the frustration of having nothing to spin with. That drove me nuts for 2 weeks I can't imagine some who has waited longer. If you end up cancelling and getting another controller I would pretty much guarantee you will regret it and end up trying to get an SX by the end of the year next year. Don't lose your position to get these. There will be more and more people that's going to want this controller the more it gets exposed and the more media it gets. Just wait a lil longer guys its def worth it.

I waited to sell my NS6 to make sure I had the DDJSX and now it is hard for me to get rid of it. It was a gamble, I know but I had to make it, at least now I have a backup. I am still trying to sell it along with the Gator bag and the Numark Redwave headphones. Hopefully someone will think its a good deal. I am selling all three items for $700. Does anyone think I am charging too much? It's in very good condition, the only thing not perfect with it is the markings around the fader which are worn. Everything else is mint.
DeedupDex 10:32 PM - 12 December, 2012
Hey MusicDan,

I think its a very fair price for your NS6. I would prob just keep it as a backup since almost all of the NS6 users i know changed to an S1 or the SX. If you look at the amount of Ns6 and S1 there is people are selling, you might have a hard time getting rid of your equip. Also almost all the stores have the ns6 on sale brand new. I would keep the ns6 as a solid backup imo.
pdidy 11:10 PM - 12 December, 2012
For some this will be a major learning experience. Never sell your dj setup if you dont have a backup system for the sake of getting new gear early. This is even more important if you are a professional dj as you will now be out of work.

Currently my database is corrupt I don't know if it was the software or my drive itself so I might not be the best to answer this question. I have never had a corrupt database it's been about 7 years so I think its about time. I go between the scratchlive and serto dj with no issues crates are in the same place no importing needed. As far as crates how ever you have it set up now it will be the same when you start the program on internal or external drive. I will give you a tip though my folders on my drive match my creates so redoing my crates is very easy. The only thing that you may want to do is re-analyze for the beat grid. If that's not a big deal to you then your ready to go right out the box. No major difference will be easy to use software wise. I just wish they would have spent more time on the video side to bring it up to mix emergencies level. Cool thing is you can get ME to work with it so I like that a lot. The updates has my controller working really good 5 STARS.... Software wise when they add auto play I will then give it 4 stars when they have the ability to record I would give it four in a half when the put the fx's on the mic it will get 5. Oh one thing I hate about this software is when you have a song loaded you can't drag it from the player to create like you could in scratchlive. THAT REALLY SUCKS

Thanks bud, appreciate the feed back! I use drag from deck in scratch live as well, but I guess as more updates come along, Serato DJ will eventually have that. I'm pretty sure the first few versions of Scratch Live didn't have it either. Not a biggie for me, but good to know. Cheers!

For those of you who have it. Are there any issues with the hardware? Platter sensitivity, sloppy? Buttons don't work, system crashes, pauses.

DJ Maniti 2:35 PM - 15 December, 2012
So far all is well with DDJ-SX... The Mic hasn't been a issue with me. Only thing I noticed is on my windows laptop I had a slight pause (about a half a second) when playing for over 2 hrs... With my MBP it was solid all the way thru. Very happy with the unit

Ma man everything is perfect...including the mic section...build date is DEC.2012 so this is def fresh off the production line...zero issues at all...i found that i had to connect my iPod and send sound thru one of the channels to activate the sound card switched to line and then back and boom all was well...

i've tested for about 12 hours total and the software and hardware are amazing...i also had to change the energy saver setting on my 15' Macbook Pro to high performance to get that perfect quality in serato video...at first i wasn't very happy with the output & was actually thinking of buying a newer model,mine is mid 2009 or so,...turns out this trick makes the video as clear as mix emergency...i'm running video in high and all is very stable but i'm blown away by the clarity especially of videos sourced from hd content :-)

very happy with this new compact setup...laptop,ddj-sx,powered x2 12 tops,x2 powered 18" subs and i'm in business without breaking my back :-)

don't know if they changed the mic pre-amp...according to specs,my mic was already good to go even with the OCT 2012 models...to be honest the pre-amp wasn't the issue...pio stepped up the quality but that mean't many mics would be out of spec :-( ...the headphone section sounds amazing too,haven't heard it this deep & detailed before on other mixers...i've used the new iPhone ear phones,and 2 pro DJ headphones and let me tell you,the sound is deep and rich with detail...to me the DDJ-SX is easily worth $2000...it was a steal for $799 for me...

Im pretty sure there are just a handfull of defective or problematic SX's out there. We never get to really hear the amount of good ones out there but we def always see and hear about the ones with problems. I have the OCT 2012 build and Im still trying to find something wrong with it. With just about under 100 hrs or so log time with the SX it still works like brand new.

i'm in no rush to get mine. actually, i hope it comes in after dec 24. NAMM is on jan 24, so if something bigger and better is intro'd at NAMM, i'll still fall within the 30 day return period.

Hey Sixla, I ordered with them late November, so please let me know as soon as you get yours... I am probably 10 to 12 behind you. One retailer just mentioned today Canada is receiving approximately 100 units today so will probably be sent to those retailers who pre-ordered with the main distributor first. and probably another 50 units for Canada before year-end. Rest in the New year! I am doubtful I will see mine until Mid/End Jan :(! Long and Mcquade has over 200 ordered all over Canada. Can you imagine if they were first to pre-order!
DJ Sixla 5:32 PM - 17 December, 2012
Hopefully, i'll get mine this week if the retailer was right !! I'll call dh depot tomorrow and let u know guys

Hey guys, just called DJ Depot and they recieved 2 units yesterday ! I was fkg 3rd on their list so i still dont have mine he said im the next and that they will be recieving a bigger batch by the end of december !
DJ Johnny S 7:22 PM - 18 December, 2012
Yes i am probably 9th on that list lol.. Spectacular Sound (toronto store) called me yesterday and said they have 1 unit and if I want it come pick it up. and gave me an hour deadline.... I tried asking DJ depot to cancel my pre-order but their policies only opt for store credit no refunds... so then i thought maybe i should buy two and sell the later unit! but i didn't make the deadline for available unit! so lost out on that.. .but yes..i got Logic pro to keep me busy until i get the sx. I might just creative and produce a track to try out on the sx!
spicaly 10:19 PM - 18 December, 2012

mine is on its way. i'm really curious if the mic situation was addressed or not....i'm sure it wasn't, but i'm prepared for the work-arounds. i currently use an NS6, which i'm very happy with....i have no idea why i'm even getting this SX lol

StevenWayne,

Once you start playing with the SX, you'll have an exact idea as to why you bought the SX. I have both NS6 and NS7...I haven't touched either of them since November 1st. People aren't exaggerating about the SX.

As for the mic problem, it isn't a defect...you have to match your mic with their specs. People that are saying that it's a defect and think there should be a recall are ridiculous. Read the manual and read the specs...if you are too good for that then don't complain. Use your eyes look around before jumping on the bandwagon asking for Pioneer's heads on a platter.
DJ Baby Raj 6:26 AM - 19 December, 2012

+1

i've tried telling people that pio seriously stepped up the mic preamp but many lower impendence mics were eliminated...just match your mic with the SX and you'll hear the clarity :-) ....there's no mic issue if you follow the required specs...you can't buy a race car that uses 100 octane gas and insist on using 87 lol...
StevenWayne 4:47 PM - 19 December, 2012
I disagree with you guys on the mic issue but I'm not gonna debate about it, everyone has their opinions. Lets just say, Pioneer, being a heavy weight in the dj game, should make products that work out of the box with industry standard gear, such as Shure. It's kinda like if Serato released a software but printed in the owners manual that it will only work with PC's. regardless of what's printed in the spec sheet/manual, it should work with industry standard stuff.
AustinG 5:05 PM - 19 December, 2012
Idk ^ my shure mic is VERY hot with my NS7 and my Rane ttm57 too.. I made the mistake of not paying attention to the specs when buying my mic. I tried to look under the silver part of the mic for a dip switch but o no avail? Maybe I'm not looking in the right place??

Question for you guys here that have dealt with AgiproDJ... So I just got the confirmation email that they are willing to give me a slight break on the price and match some similar deals. I agreed to the price and I'm going to pull the trigger on the SX... But here's the thing, they sent me a link for a PayPal request for the money. This is new to me. I have a PayPal but I've never received something like this when doing a price match. Do you think it's cool for me to go ahead with it?
dj-freestyle 6:01 PM - 19 December, 2012
@austin, using paypal is fine. Actually is a good thing. You have some protection when you use them and agigpro is a huge company so dont worry.

I find this quote funny because it's actually opposite so it should read more like...


Serato works 99% of the time out of the box with a Mac, and it runs PCs as well but you need to tweak it. Runs better because it was designed from a Mac. PC guys do it all the time...they do changes to make their hardware work with the software. We are lucky and I think we are taking for granted that EVERYTHING is plug and play...its a little bit of reading and a small adjustment. I don't think we're entitled to have a plug and play...seriously?

c'mon
StevenWayne 6:57 PM - 19 December, 2012
^ agreed....but to a certain extent. we're talking about a mic input. the hardware/software is so advanced, so much time and money was invested into getting this piece perfect....why would they simply neglect a SIMPLE feature like the mic input. i mean, really, they have the ability to give us 4 deck control, great efx's, sync, touch sensitivity,serato dj, etc...but they "choose" to make the mic input mic specific?? call it what you want, but it sounds like a defect to me.

Thanks freestyle.. I paid $877. They had price matched another online store 2 weeks ago for me and were nice enough to honor that! So big s/o to agiprodj!

Now the wait begins, can't wait to quit lugging my 1200's around and get back into gigging with a controller.
Certified Quality Entertainment 8:19 PM - 19 December, 2012
^^ Awesome price. Im gonna be grabbing one after the new year. Hope to get a good price as well.

Also, Agi is as good as they come. I've purchased a lot of stuff from them, no issuse at all using paypal. I am actually going to be going to them when I am ready to pull the trigger on it.

Good luck with the unit!
DeedupDex 8:40 PM - 19 December, 2012
AustinG You can def trust paypal and Agip roif it give you anymore peace or mind. They do paypal because it so much easier to price adjust with paypal and send you an invoice. You will also be protected under paypal.

Thanks for the replies.. one of the guys in my crew works for Sam Ash so I usually go there and have never shopped Agipro.. I'll use agipro in the future for sure.

As stand up as agiprodj may have been to everyone else I have to say I'm a little disappointed with their Customer Service/Sales... They did me the favor of honoring a price match at $877 BUT they lead me to believe that they had the SX in stock... After sending over the money through paypal (and not getting any confirmation), I called in to CS to find out what the deal was. They told me that it was NOT in stock and that it would be coming from Pioneer. So, the wait begins..... They also said that everyone of theirs had the video voucher included (I have this saved in email from agiprodj). I'm tired of these online companies not giving you the absolute truth on these things.

ya its crazy. I was suprised when i walked on and 10 where stacked with a sigh on them for holidays and they said they had 10 more in back. I was told gc had dibs on all of them so i guess that was true
Asu 1:37 AM - 28 December, 2012
Happy for you Raj...I've used it this holiday season and I'm extremely happy with the unit....i keep thinking i forgot to pack something due to all the gear i used to lug around lol...now i only take the laptop,SX,mic,speakers,stands and a few cables....

Probably because US stores get it before Canadian do. Sucks that we have to wait so long! I called DJ Depot and they said nothing for this year... hopefully sometime in January... Getting very frustrated now! I almost want to order the unit form ana american store and delivery to a near by UPS in buffalo and drive n pick it up.. but won't get a refund on my pre-order... there should be a clause that if the pre-order is taking so long, it can be cancelled!
DJ.Tyme 8:09 PM - 28 December, 2012
i use zzounds & ams all the tyme. but always check the same product your looking for on both websites. sometime one has a better payment plan than the other. example just got my Numark Mixdeck Quad from ams it was 5 payments of $159.99 and zzounds was 4 payments of $199.99 so yeah (Always) check both websites.

word? what's the best way to protect my video library from causing these issues?
Funkytownstopsix 1:58 PM - 31 December, 2012
Backups.... Backups..... Backups. LOL when video came out on Serato there was a really hugh learning curve(key frames,frame rates,data rates),... That was because there was diffrent standards well guess what if you join a legitmate pool they all are using Serato's standards so for you life is easy just download and it will most often work with no issues. For your peace of mind back up your libary I have 3 backup drives. I have lost a drive before it's no fun if you are not backed up..... You can't stop cruption things are built to break.... I hopes this help you young grasshopper.

Always be sure to analyze your files to prevent that, I can't say when but as of late if I load a bad video that would be one with the lighting bolt next to it, It will not play and if it does I know there is an issue with it. So I re-encode the video as I don't want to lose it and problem is solved.
dj-freestyle 3:50 PM - 31 December, 2012
Ive learned from using both mix emergency and serato video that serato video is much more picky then mix emergency. Mix emergency runs alot better and clearer then serato video but serato video has gotton better for sure. Dont uses crappy videos from crappy sites. Your asking for isses that will corrupt your library for sure and yes backup always. I use a 2tb external g-drive thats filled and really have had no issues with serato video at all. I dont really get to crazy with effetcs and stuff because i feel like thats what screws it up usually. its very taxing on a system just to do videos i feel. Just my opinion
AustinG 5:11 PM - 31 December, 2012
Cool, thanks for those tips. My first goal for '13 is to start spinning vids... The ddjsx is scheduled to arrive Jan 2 from agiprodj. My fingers are still crossed that it will have the video voucher as promised..
Funkytownstopsix 6:26 PM - 31 December, 2012
13 humm will that work with vid...I recall at one time people saying it did not. Make sure you check to see so you don't waste money. Mine came with a voucher I didn't use as I am already a paying member of the Serato Family...... Either way good luck and welcome the world of video and controllers! It is a damn good contorller...

i've had 3 crashes so far with serato DJ and i re checked and the files don't seem to be corrupt...1 crash happened at close to the end of my set,2 happened in offline mode...it happens when the previous file is a video i noticed...when i drop a audio file...that's when it has crashed...should i start a thread for this???....also where are the crash logs located on mac so i can send it to serato team...i do periodically clean out or re-encode corrupt files.

I got a rant about Serato and there little lighting bolt. (corrupted files) It started happening right around version 2.4.0 Certain files that weren't corrupted and played find are now showing up in my library as corrupted. They still play fine, but now I have that dam lighting bolt icon next to them. What gives?
phatbob 11:47 AM - 2 January, 2013
More recent versions are more adept at spotting corrupt files than older ones.

You should start a help request so you can upload examples for Serato to check out.

When you hover over the lightning bolt what message do you get at the bottom of the screen?

Removing corrupt files seems to have helped,but i'll rescan the whole library when i get my new i-7 quad core (with HT can scan 8 files at a time) Macbook Pro....too slow on a duo core :-(
Funkytownstopsix 2:39 PM - 2 January, 2013
As Phatbob said they are being more careful in the newer versions of making sure videos don't crash the software during an event. I hated that too becasue videos played with no issues on my part unitl I upgraded. Most of the videos I had to re-encode where from the same person or group. As for sanning taking to long you are correct that's whay I use a PC Desktop for all of that... Save my poor old mac book pro..... Man have you went out on ebay and checked the prices on used macbook Pros if not you should... Some great deals out there.

At work right now, but I can tell you off the top of my head that since I upgraded to Serato 2.4.0- 2.4.3 , it's saying some of my visuals are corrupted. Of all the visuals that Serato thinks are corrupted are the exclusive free Beeple content that was available to download last year. (serato.com) So how are these newer releases of Scratch Live adapting to better spot corrupted files when the files aren't even corrupted in the first place? When I get home tonight I'll let you know what Serato says when i hover my mouse over a corrupted file.

Of all the visuals that Serato thinks are corrupted are the exclusive free Beeple content that was available to download last year. (serato.com) So how are these newer releases of Scratch Live adapting to better spot corrupted files when the files aren't even corrupted in the first place? When I get home tonight I'll let you know what Serato says when i hover my mouse over a corrupted file.

My sx arrived today! Can't wait to get home and unbox it... Anyone have suggestions on JOG WHEEL settings for a turntablist. I like for my slipmats and records to be slick yet have a bit of grip. In other words I don't like my vinyl to feel too loose or too tight. I like that medium feel.
AustinG 4:23 PM - 4 January, 2013
Also, has anyone been able to buy the Pioneer soft bag yet? Can you gig right out of the bag? Some of my gigs don't have a booth so I have to setup my turntables on flight case to get them at the right height. That soft bag looks almost like you can gig right out of if??

try this one www.dynamic-sounds.com

or the black one with glide top www.dynamic-sounds.com

Black with no glide + cheaper :-) www.dynamic-sounds.com

personally I'm getting the black one with no glide...u know many DJ booths are cramped already...no room for glides just a laptop stand on the side works for me :-)
AustinG 5:28 AM - 5 January, 2013
Yeah I'm in for one of those without the glide, rather have mine off to the side too..

Question, will my video plugin (free voucher) work for both my SX and for my ttm57? Or will I need a separate license for the 57?

good luck bro...i'm still blown away by the quality of this controller...it's changed the game :-)
AustinG 3:45 AM - 9 January, 2013
I agree Asu, it's a very nice controller and I really do love it. I can't complain at $877 shipped with free video voucher!!

My biggest knock on it is that I wish it were a little wider. I feel the platters are too close to the crossfader. I would pay an extra $50 for this same controller had pioneer used more material to make it a bit wider. The platters are also VERY small for you turntable guys.

I'm not a cdj guy but these platter feel very loose. That's coming from a butter rug/flying carpet type 12000's user... I like my vinyl slippery but these sx platters are very loose. They feel like an NS6, maybe a bit tighter but not much.

The kit is loaded with shit I'll probably never learn nor need to use but still very cool.

The upfaders are way too tight for me. Is there anyway to adjust these? I'm affraid my unit is bad or was it designed this way. Will the upfaders loosen up as they get more use?

The crossfader IS butter though!!

I'll keep this and wait for an NS7.2. I still feel the NS7 was the best kit on the market. If they make it lighter and add some more features and better effects I'll but another in a heartbeat.
AustinG 3:47 AM - 9 January, 2013
*buy another (NS7.2) in a heartbeat*

I am going to rent the DDJ-S1 for my gig... has anyone used that?? Is it reliable, how is the mic connections on that? Its a small gig with not much mixing needed, but I would like to get some feedback and tips on usit the unit! Any help is appreciated!!

DeedupDex 8:45 AM - 15 January, 2013
Sixia when buying the new macbook, determine weather you will be using Serato Video or not. If you do not plan on using video then even the lowest model macbook will be fine. If you are going to be using or planning on using serato video in the future, you need to get a macbook with a dedicated video card for compatibility.
Asu 6:05 PM - 15 January, 2013
What do u mean it stopped working?...did it die suddenly or it won't boot up?...if it won't boot...that can be fixed @ the nearest apple store,happened to me too once...always check disk permissions once a month to prevent future problems...

Otherwise it should still be fine...& God loves u that's why he sent u a DDJ-SX :-) Stay Positive bro,get it checked out @ apple store
DJ Sixla 7:29 PM - 15 January, 2013
It won't boot up .. I sent it to repair shop and will keep it as a back up i think !

Is this unit similar to CDJ 1000s and a 4 ch djm mixer?

I basically sold by 1000s and DJM 700 for this.. still waiting to recieve it.... almost 3 months in to production and still back ordered!
dj-freestyle 5:49 PM - 21 January, 2013
No not like cdj's. They are touch sensative platter so very different.
AustinG 7:28 PM - 21 January, 2013
Yeah it's very different. I was expecting it to be more like the platters of cdj's but it's really not even close. For me nothing will replace 1200's or CDJ's. The sx is more like that crap box NS6. I'm actually about to trade my SX for an NS7.... At least I was fortunate enough to get the free video voucher.
dj-freestyle 7:37 PM - 21 January, 2013
They made it clear from begnning they were touch sensative. Controllers are turntables. 3900's are closest thing to tables ive used. Ns7 is nice but still feel very different. I like my 3900's alot more then the ns7 but the ns7 is a controller and easier to set up so i get it. Ive used them all. I like the ddj but i like my ns6 alot. It was a tank and worked perfectly.
dj-freestyle 7:37 PM - 21 January, 2013
arent turntables
Asu 8:32 PM - 21 January, 2013
Like everyone here said,the jogs are touch sensitive & very responsive...just set them between 10-11 O'clock senstivity.It's a very excellent unit...can't even compare the build quality to ns6 or 7...and once you practice with it,you'll find it very very responsive.it is everything i thought it would be...for mobile DJing especially this is the king of controllers...my 2 cents
dj-freestyle 8:37 PM - 21 January, 2013
I spent 2 months just practicing on it before i would take it out to a gig. I love my 3900's so wanted to be comfortable and really its a great great controller. The software has been stable as hell and with the coming updates will be even better. Ive had 23 years in this game and used it all and my opinion and just my opinion is its a great product. my 2 cents only.

i'm with you on this...the hardware simplicity + software reliability can't be beat...DJing has come a long way :-)
StevenWayne 9:26 PM - 21 January, 2013
I've been practicing at home with it but still hesitant to take it out. Twice, the hardware froze up on me, no buttons would function but Serato dj kept playing. The only fix was to restart the controller. I can't seem to duplicate the problem though but it happened two different occasions. A quick search on the forums shows this has happened to others too both Mac and PC users. I got a beefed up MBP so not sure what the issue is.
Asu 9:59 PM - 21 January, 2013
Hi Steve,

happened to me once right when i got it...i updated the firmware,removed corrupt files,updated Serato DJ to 1.1.1,increased video buffer to 1GIG, and all is good...even did a 8 hour set new years eve...also make sure u turn off wifi & bluetooth.

And when u update Serato dj make sure u replace the shortcut on your desktop,you may open the old version,watch for this...and on mac use the USB port closest to the SD card reader...many people swear by it :-)
StevenWayne 10:04 PM - 21 January, 2013
thanks for the advise. yeah, the weird thing is, this happened to me the first hour i took it out of the box. i updated the firmware and software the next day and have been practicing on it about 2hrs a day since and it hasnt happened yet. i've read on the forums that some guys are playing gigs and it freezes on them a few hours into their sets...now thats scary stuff there.
Asu 10:23 PM - 21 January, 2013
seems to me like a break in period but later all is well...just make sure your videos are encoded right,remove any corrupt files and do all i said up there,haven't had any issues...since i did all that.

I'm loving the controller.
Asu 10:36 PM - 21 January, 2013
it will freeze especially if the video encoding is done wrong...i for example noticed that the video service i use encodes at a very high rate i think 4000 - 4500kb...whenever i lopped a video with such a high encode,it caused such a huge cpu spike as the loop went back and forth...this will crash your software eventually as the night goes on.

What i do now...i re-encode all their videos and the ones i do at 3000kb through handbrake and during loops the huge cpu spikes are no more....the quality is still the same pretty much.

So you have to be especially careful with videos...they will crash the software.

My Specs:Mid 2009 Macbook pro,8 GIGs Ram,750HDD,512 Nvidia Video Card...

gonna upgrade to a Mid 2012 Macbook Pro in a few weeks...the GT650M in the newer Macbooks is so damn good....has GTX Specs technically speaking and does a wonderful job decoding videos...thus saving your cpu the load.
StevenWayne 10:36 PM - 21 January, 2013
yeah, i encode about 90% of my videos myself. i've been through the growing pains of vsl since day one. actually, right now, i'm using the Serato DJ + ME hack and its been workign out great
Asu 10:55 PM - 21 January, 2013
Steve,

Sometimes guys complain but they don't tell you the whole story...I did mess around with the ME hack during practice when i had just got the SX.

i can confirm that the DDJ-SX will freeze 1-2hrs into a set if using the ME hack....so that right there is one of your issues and many guys that have complained...

I got away from the hack,did a clean install because the controller would freeze eventually while running ME...that's my experience...there's no way i could trust the hack on a paid gig.

I'm using Serato Video until ME officially supports Serato DJ due to this problem.
StevenWayne 10:59 PM - 21 January, 2013
thats good to know. the ME hack actually hasnt frozen on me yet. when i had the hardware freeze, it was with serato video, both times. but i'll take your word for it
DJ Baby Raj 4:20 AM - 22 January, 2013

Yeah Steve,for me it's not worth the risk while live...at home u can...but it a distabilizing factor to Serato software + hardware.

Raj ME hack is Mix Emergency hack...some guy figured out how you can use mix emergency with Serato DJ but it is quite unstable (from what i found)...i tested it for a week and eventually the hardware or software always froze and had to be reset...i was just telling Steve my experiences & conclusions about the hack.

So for Serato DJ just stick to Serato Video for stability.

ME with Scratch Live is excellent though :-)
dj-freestyle 4:03 PM - 22 January, 2013
Im huge mix emergency guy but hacks scare me when i client is paying me a ton to dj. Usually enough other crap to worry about i dont want a added issue but i get it totally. me blows serato video away thought serato video has come a long way. media crate was a huge step forward. I hated attaching ambients.
DJ Baby Raj 4:43 PM - 22 January, 2013
Ohhh Ok.. I never messed with ME... Is it that better than serato video?

definately night and day difference. the question is.....whats more riskier, Serato Video at 100% or a hacked ME setup? Serato Video has been glitchy at times for me as well. i've been a VSL user since day one when it was released, then went onto ME, but then went to Serato Video when it was released for Itch last year. Serato Video has had a few bugs that has effected my gigs, so rolling the dice with a hacked ME setup might not be too bad of an option for me.
dj-freestyle 7:55 PM - 22 January, 2013
Could be. Serato video has been super stable for me so for controllers i just use it. Figure why mess with karma. M E always with scratch live for sure.

ME has it down for sure...hope serato video catches up via feature set,but its very stable for me...longest video gig was New Years eve...Serato Video run for 8hrs Straight...now that's Stable :-)

Good luck with the hack Steve,you'll need a sack of it if you ask me lol
StevenWayne 10:27 PM - 22 January, 2013
nah, i'm keeping in mind what you said. i prefer ME over Serato Video anyday. I've had my share of issues with Serato Video, so keeping my options open. I have gigs lined up, but in no rush to make a decision on either setup until i'm 100% confident in it....for now, i'll stick with my 57 and 1200s

Ouch! actually just checked back with AGI today and it looks like they came in. I confirmed mine is shipping today.

Johnny S, maybe cancel and reorder with someone else? I would not be happy if I was waiting almost 2 months

Certified Quality Entertainment 4:10 PM - 30 January, 2013
www.americanmusical.com

Here you go. It's not actually for the DDJ SX but after watching this video, it seemed like the best option for me. I got it for $225 shipped.
Watchwww.youtube.com

Case arrived the other day. Looks great so far. My SX shipped yesterday so I should have it by next week so I will put it in the case then.

one of the reasons i opted for this case was the size of it, the laptop stand and the fact that it has more room under and behind the unit than than other cases i've seen. I'm big into modding cases for power/XLRs etc and this case looks like it will have enough room to do all of that.
DJ Johnny S 6:59 PM - 30 January, 2013
Difference is that I am in Canada... I tried asking AGI, they never replied back to me and their Q&A's say they will not ship to Canada. I have a store in Canada that keeps claling me saying how long are you going to wait for your pre-order with another store, cancel it and buy from them... but when I call to cancel the store tells me they cannot... I think that is abosolute crap and there must a a timeline to fill in the order... else I should be able to cancel..
Certified Quality Entertainment 8:07 PM - 30 January, 2013
Yea I agree...you should certainly be able to cancel after that amount of time. That's insane!

CQE, thanks for the links. How did you get that price? It looks like it's $249 now.

Q: when the lid goes down is there foam in the top of the case to hold the SX down?
Certified Quality Entertainment 8:53 PM - 30 January, 2013
I just called up and asked for a better price! :) Simple as that.

Yes there is foam on the top of the lid. There are 4 pieces that will hold the SX down. I am not sure if they are move-able but they are there.

Ill make sure to take some in depth pics when my SX arrives on Tuesday. I'm really looking forward to it.

I do use my TT's and 57 at home but don't take them out anymore.
I have a wedding on the 16th. Hoping to get familiar enough with it to use it by then.
AustinG 4:06 AM - 31 January, 2013
It's a nice kit, you'll like it. If you're familiar with 1200's and a 57 you won't have any issue picking up on the SX. The software is nice too. Good luck. Thanks again for the link, I'm hoping to get the case by Friday.

Yeah, it's the midi - that red dot lights up and says "midi". I lab'd some new tracks yesterday with the SX and noticed a couple of blips here and there... Again, I had been running Ableton earlier in the day, my wifi may have been on still, and I'm sure I had some other things running too.

Next time I lab with the SX i'll remember to close everything down and do a restart.

I noticed that my Cue point "text" did not get carried over from SSL. Hopefully in the future the cue point labels will carry over to serato dj. I've spent tons of hours on cue points and labeling them with text.

It's called Scan+Repair just google it and you will find the dl link. There may be a new version but i'm still on the original.

Finally got mine last week Thursday! The store mentioned that I am not going tog et it due to further back order so maybe by end of Feb, thats when I said its time to cancel the pre-order as another store keeps claling me saying they have these units ... then via a miracle he calls back saying he has one for me! The guy in line before me cannot pick his up so I take his spot...

Anyways, glad to have the unit... I have some questions though...

1. I have seen videos on how to change the sampler banks via DDJ but I loaded the banks via my mac and the pads 7 and 8 on both sides do not illuminate or let me switch between banks.. can someone help me understand why?

2. Both sides of ddj when switched to sampler is linked to only one bank at a time?

3. While searching on serato DJ within files, if you press key son your keyboard to find tracks in folder starting with "a" or any key that row or above, it doesn't work, but key's "z" to "m" work... why?

DDJ SX = Best Controller Ever

Its so weird, I have the latest firmware and update but still can't switch sample banks using the last two samplers... on either side, I can only use the auto loop parameter to do so.... any one else share this issue? Do I need to hold Shift and something?

They changed it to the parameter buttons so you don't accidentally switch banks whilst hammering out samples on the pads.

Hey guys bumping this back up. Has anyone ever used AMS extended warranty? Having an issue with my DDJ-SX I bought from them.
