- Slip Mode: When activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a loop, reverse or scratch and continues audible playback at the exact time when the loop, scratch, hot cues is ended, resulting in smoother transitions.
- FX Mode: Provides access to two types of effect modes, Multi FX and Single FX mode.
- Multi FX Mode: Allows multiple effects to be applied simultaneously.
- Single FX Mode: Allows a single effect to be controlled with numerous parameters.
- Additional Functions:

The DDJ-SX DJ controller can quickly access the multitude of features Serato DJ offers through its buttons, knobs, sliders and performance pads. Thoughtfully laid out to deliver the best controller DJ experience, its buttons and knobs are programmed to the applicable software functions.
- Performance Pads: Pioneer added ‘performance pads’ located below the jog wheel for four different functionalities – HOT CUE, ROLL, SLICER and SAMPLER. Each soft-touch rubber pad illuminates in blue to enable users to quickly tap the pad(s) for each effect, with the output volume varying depending on the strength of each tap.
- Large Jog Wheels: Larger than most current Pioneer controller models, the size of the jog wheels on the DDJ-SX were increased in size for enhanced scratching and mixing performance. The resistance for each jog wheel was fined tuned to provide users with the best feel and the shortest latency possible from any controller. The controller also features an On Jog display located on the center of each wheel to provide instant visual feedback of playback status and the position of playing tracks.
- 4-Channel Mixer: The DDJ-SX features an independent 4-channel mixer which can be used with other external sources such as turntables. Its master level meter provides instantaneous sound level adjustment as well as independent output controls with a display indicator for each channel when used as a standalone mixer.
- Aluminum Finish: The Pioneer DDJSX sports an aluminum top panel and a brushed aluminum finish for the jog wheels for optimal look and feel.
