Now Supported: Pioneer DDJ-SB2

An update to the highly popular DDJ-SB, the DDJ-SB2 is supported in Serato DJ Intro 1.2.6 and Serato DJ 1.7.7, both available now. Read up on what's changed and what's new.

New Features / Additions

  • 4 Deck control with the DDJ-SB2 in Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ. A layer button on the left and right side switches control from 1 / 2 and 3 / 4.
  • All new Pad Trans performance pad mode. Trigger a transform effect by holding the pad down - each pad will trigger this at a different beat division.
  • Each channel now has a dedicated channel gain control, giving you more accuracy with your track levels while in the mix.
  • Monitor your levels accurately with channel metering. Make sure everything sits right in the mix.

Alongside standard DDJ-SB features:

  • USB powered. No need to find an extra power outlet.
  • Filter Fade - which helps create seamless mixes by adding a high pass filter to the crossfader, enabling smoother transitions with just one control.
  • Combo HP/LP filter for each channel.
  • Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler modes
  • Dedicated Serato software FX Control
  • Single Mic Input (1/4” jack).
  • Master RCA output.
  • Both 1/4” and 1/8” mini jack headphone outs.
  • USB 2.0 port for straightforward, plug-and-play connection with Serato DJ Intro
  • High resolution, touch sensitive jog wheels.

The Pioneer DDJ-SB2 is a Serato DJ Upgrade Ready device. It's supported out of the box in Serato DJ Intro 1.2.6 for FREE and Serato DJ 1.7.7 with a purchased Serato DJ license.

Hey Serato Team,

Having the same issue as the others...I have Serato 1.9.1 already and it's not recognizing the decks. Please, please help I want to play with this thing! Thank you
nathan0717 10:18 PM - 21 July, 2016
I keep having my whole controller freeze especially after loading a track onto the right side. I can find no help at all.
kyler4Short 10:20 PM - 21 July, 2016
Hey Nathan,

I emailed Serato directly and they got back to me within a day with very helpful information. I think that's a much better route than posting here. Hope that helps.
UKBENJI 9:59 AM - 21 September, 2016
Has anyone got the answer to this issue yet I am having the same problem with no response from serato?
kyler4Short 3:19 PM - 21 September, 2016
Depends what OS you're running but it might be this: support.serato.com

He had me try a whole bunch of things before that to no avail but this is the one that finally worked. If it doesn't, message me and I'll send you the whole thread so you can see all of the other options.

And like I said in that earlier post, Support is really on top of it if you reach out.
UKBENJI 6:02 PM - 21 September, 2016
I have emailed serato twice now with no response. Thankyou for your reply, I am using a windows 7 user but if you could send me the whole thread that would be great.

Thankyou

I am having issues with my ddj-sb2. When I upgrade to serato dj 1.9.5 the wheels are not displaying. Can you help me
JohnnyGoboy 8:59 AM - 1 February, 2017
I'm having the same problem with 1.9.5. I wish Serato would sort it out. It's really frustrating.
Delfino Da Rocha 9:08 AM - 18 February, 2017
I there, could you guys from serato help me please i buy a controller Pioneer DDJ SB2, also already I have the DJ Serato programme but when I connect it doesn't work, can you guys sort out this issue I am having
DJChefNYC 2:01 PM - 9 March, 2017
Good Day DJs there is a few steps you must go through... 1. Obtain Driver from pioneer, here is the link... www.pioneerdj.com 2. Connect all cables, external HDD, ADJUST TRIM KNOBS, and MASTER Knobs Halfway. 3. Then Open Serato DJ. I hope this helps... you should see and hear sound after loading a track. I was looking for help on recording the MIC input Serato DJ will not record the MIC input on my setup. Is anyone else having this issue?
DJ Svilen 3:44 PM - 12 March, 2017
And I have the same problem as colleagues above ... Use controller Pioneer DDJ SB2 and Serato 1.9.0, all versions after 1.9.0 do not want to be unlocked when you insert my usb cable from the console to the laptop. Please if anyone knows how to solve this problem writing because I want to do an update to a new version of Serato. Thanks
DJ StewCrew 12:13 AM - 17 March, 2017
I've connected the DDJ-SB2 to PC, but when I open the program is not syncing...I have Serato DJ Intro and I have no problem. Any help would be fine. When I try to click on the m midi button on the program, it's not highlighted...
Sev 6:10 PM - 4 April, 2017
I had the serato ddj-sb2for the pass three months. Everything was working fine until last then it starting asking to purchase a license. Now I can't use it. Wtf. Why didn't they tell me that when I brought it?😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
DJ StewCrew 9:38 PM - 4 April, 2017
I just did a screen share with one of the techs from Serato, I have both the DDJ-SB2 and Vestax VCI 300, and could only get them to work with the Serato intro... But the DDJ-SB2 wouldn't work right, so after the tech helped me, they both work with Serato DJ... Plus the Serato DJ is only $49.50, half off, so I'm going to purchase it and see what happens... Serato has always been a good program and if they want to keep in good standings, I think the techs should lend a hand.. They could be very busy, but Everytime I email them, they respond.. Good luck guys..
jus.andrade 7:57 PM - 17 May, 2017
hey guys, i have the same problem. how did you fix that? please, help me!
jus.andrade 7:58 PM - 17 May, 2017
did work out?
DJ StewCrew 9:12 PM - 17 May, 2017
Yes, they both work
Get with Serato and have them contact you.. They'll get it working
jus.andrade 9:22 PM - 17 May, 2017
how did you contact him? by phone?
Milos Cejovic 7:04 PM - 25 May, 2017
I bought DDJ SB2 before like 20 days, and I download Serato DJ. Everything was fine. When trial expired, of course I cannot use it. So I buy Serato DJ and everything is fine.
If you use Serato DJ Intro, then its another thing. Its no good at all.
DJ StewCrew 5:09 AM - 5 August, 2017
Yes and By email, they did a screen share and all is working, now I just got another laptop and want to share the program on new one
