Pioneer DDJ‑SZ


The Pioneer DDJ-SZ is the first Pioneer controller to closely match the experience of a CDJ-2000nexus and DJM-900nexus setup for the most intuitive DJ experience. Features include full size, aluminum jog wheels inherited from the CDJ-2000nexus, illuminated, super accurate digital track position indicators, large Performance Pads with RGB customizable multi-colored LEDs and two USB sound cards for ultra-smooth DJ change-over.

The DDJ-SZ is also the first Pioneer controller to offer Support for DVS control, which allows DJs to connect CDJs or Turntables, and use Serato NoiseMap™ Control Vinyl or CDs to operate Serato DJ. The DDJ-SZ can also be used as a standalone four-channel mixer.
