“Hitting the decks has never been easier and more intuitive – even for first-time DJs. Not only does it boast all popular features from the DDJ-SB – such as Filter Fade and Performance Pads – but it now boasts features not usually found at this price point, including trim pots, level meters, the Pad Trans beat effect and 4-deck control.”
What we find notably impressive is the robust feature-set included with the DDJ-SB2 comes with an entry-level price tag, with most retailers listing it at only $249 USD. For 4-deck control, high-quality built-in audio interface and Pioneer DJ’s legendary quality construction we can see the DDJ-SB2 quickly becoming one of the more popular DJ controllers for DEX 3 and DEX 3 RE DJ software users, especially those new to controllerism. This is an excellent, affordable controller choice for budding digital DJs.
