Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ Serato DJ Professional DJ Controller

Have you longed for a product that combines the convenience of a DJ controller with the feel and functionality of CDJs? Do you need an all-in-one DJ system that doesn't limit your creativity behind the decks? If so, look no further than the Pioneer DDJ-SZ! Serving as their new flagship model, Pioneer's DDJ-SZ emulates their wildly popular CDJ digital players using the same 8.1-inch JOG wheels built into a body that is 35% larger than the game-changing DDJ-SX. Expanded features and functionality, color-changing performance pads, integrated DJM-style mixer, dual USB ports, and a MAGVEL cross fader all bring the DDJ-SZ to a whole new level.

CDJ-Style Jog Wheels

The CDJ-style JOG wheels provide lightning fast response and excellent operability for accurate and smooth scratching and mixing performance. The center of each JOG wheel also features "ON JOG display" to illustrate playback status, cue points and position. To make sure everything works just how you like it, utilize the JOG FEELING ADJUST in order to change the resistance of the jog wheels for ultimate comfortability.

Performance Pads

Directly below each JOG wheel are four effects buttons: HOT CUE, ROLL, SLICER and SAMPLER. Beneath the effect buttons are 8 performance pads that DJs can quickly access to apply effects to the music in real time. In Sampler mode, the output volume of the sampler effects is velocity sensitive, meaning it changes depending on how hard the user hits the pad. Similar to the DDJ-SX2 and other newer Pioneer controllers, the performance pads on the DDJ-SZ illuminate in different colors to indicate which effect mode is currently active.

Dual USB Ports

Transitioning between two DJs and/or adding additional music sources has never been easier thanks to the two USB ports included on the SZ, allowing simultaneous connection between two computers.

High-End Mixer

The mixing area of the DDJ-SZ also closely mimics Pioneer's DJM series of professional mixers, offering a wide array of controls and effects with features including Sound Color FX and new Oscillator functions to allow for more innovative musical arrangements. Outboard players and turntables can also be used with the SZ, as the mixer section can function as a standalone 4-channel mixer.

Oscillator – The new Oscillator on the right side of the mixer provides four types of sound effects: Noise, Siren, Cymbal and Horn. These effects can be activated at the touch of a button and are easily volume-adjustable.

Sound Color FX – The mixer includes four Sound Color FX functions (Pitch, Jet, Echo and Filter), giving you extensive effects to mix and match for a truly unique sound. Echoes can also be synchronized to the BPM of the music through Serato's BPM analysis software.

DVS Functionality – The controller can support DVS (Digital Vinyl System) using control tone to enable external players such as turntables and CDJs to be used as a Serato DJ deck.

Magvel Cross Fader

To maximize durability and enable smoother transitions between the decks, the DDJ-SZ features a MAGVEL crossfader, utilizing a contact-free magnetic system than can stand up to the most rigorous cuts. Fans of Pioneer's DJM-900SRT will already be familiar with the MAGVEL fader, as an identical fader is used in both units. The "cut in" time of the fader is customizable to the user's preferences.

Features:
  • The latest DJ software Serato DJ (free to download) for a truly unique DJing experience
  • All buttons and knobs, as well as the soundcard*2, are "PLUG AND PLAY" – configured in advance to work with "Serato DJ".
  • Top plate and jog wheels built with an aluminum stylish finish
  • Slip Mode for precision scratching: Slip Mode silently continues track playback during a loop, reverse or scratch, and brings the music back at the right point when the DJ exits the performance. It also adds a further level to the Performance Pads, enabling tricks such as Slip Hot Cue
  • Needle Search: touch strip for intuitive, fast searches
  • P-LOCK Fader Caps are impossible to pull off in the heat of a mix.
  • "Auto Standby" function switches to standby mode when a state of no use or no input continues for a certain period of time.
  • Now supportsVirtual DJ Pro.

How much does it weigh?
jk on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Pioneer DDJ-SZ Serato 4 Channel DJ Controller weighs 10.4 kg or 22.93 lbs
What is the measurements l w h?
Steph on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The dimensions in inches are 34 1/4" wide 16 1/4" Deep 4" height. You need to account for the depth to include the cables coming out of the back so add 3 to 4 inches of clearance to plug in your cables. ;)
What are the major and minor differences between a DDJ-SZ and a DDJ-SX 2?
DJTMH on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are many differences, but for starters:

- DDJ SX2 has Dual Deck Mode (control two software decks simultaneously)

- DDJ SX2 is smaller

- DDJ SZ mixer has Pioneer hardware effects

- DDJ SZ hardware mixer EQ's are isolators (full kill), while the DDJ SX2 goes to -26 dB only

- DDJ SZ has an additional cue point sticker at the middle of the jog wheel

- DDJ SZ has two USB ports for seamless DJ transitions or back to back DJing

- DDJ SZ supports DVS (control vinyl input)
So I am thinking of purchasing this product because owning (2) of the CDJ-2000 Nexus units and the DJM-900NXS mixer is just too much cash for something to keep at home ($4900). I know that nobody owns it since it just came out today, but as for something to practice with at home, how similar is it? I have been a vinyl dj for years and have have used the CDJs from time to time, but wanted to get something to keep at home to brush up my skills. Thoughts?
Motionisgay on Jan 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The DDJSZ is actually designed to keep the feel and quality of the CDJ series. Pioneer worked really hard to emulate the World- reowned CDJ's.
Can I connect the Pioneer DDJ-SZ into QSC K12 speakers?
Dave on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the DDJ-SZ can connect to your QSC K12's by using an XLR to XLR signal cable.

Best controller ever!!
Pros: Solo Mic Channel,Full Size Cdj Jog Wheels,Color Coded Pads,Bigger Platform
Cons: Jogs Not Pressure Sense

This is the best controller I have used so far. Pioneer did a very good job of applying the nexus quality to this controller. The only fuss I have about this controller is the platers are not pressure sensitive. So if you are buying this unit coming from CDJ's with the pressure sensitive platers it might take some getting used to. If you are in the market for a new controller I would recommend this one for sure.

THE BEST CONTROLLER Out there!
Pros: Easy To Navigate,Easy To Install,Powerful,Fast

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this controller! I have been a dj since the late 90's and I have used everything from Technics 1200's,Denon cd turntables to Pioneer CDJs and I NEVER thought I would ever get a controller. The Pioneer DDJ-SZ is by far the one with all the "bells and whistles" and all my friends envy me cause I have one. The controller itself is light and is plug and play friendly. All you do is connect the power to the your wall outlet and the usb to your computer and you"re done! I have a bunch of dj friends and often we dj parties together so this controller helps out since we don't have to put a cd to switch from one dj to the next. This controller has 2 usb outlets (only 1 usb cord included in the box) so switching is as easy as pressing a button.
Here's my only problem with this big controller, It's obvious that buying something so fancy you are most likely going to buy the case to put it into for protection right? Well my case also is the fancy box with built in dual laptop stand and even has a little pull out table. When I do dj by myself and this year (2014) was a busy one for me, The case gets heavy, it's bulky when you are taking up lights, dance floor lights, speakers, sub,etc Half of the time you are going to be wishing you had a smaller one. Since I have this one already and don't plan to get rid of it or plan to trade it cause I DO LVE IT! I plan to get a smaller controller for when I do dj by myself. If you are starting out consider getting the Pioneer DDJ-SB or even thePioneer DDJ-SR two good controllers that are cheaper and smaller. Since I do play videos most of the time I plan to go with the SR model.

No Post Fade FX
It has a great quality sound card and master output volume ...The job wheels are very responsive...the only draw back is that the fx such as echo do not work in post fade or after you drop the channel volume, I checked for a firmware update but there hasn't been a firmware update for the sz since 2014 as of today 12 Sept 2016 to address it.
