Pioneer DJ has released their newest beginner/intermediate-level Digital DJ controller for their Serato lineup called the DDJ-SB. This new, compact, and USB-powered controller has the familiar 16 Performance Pads, Slip-Mode, built-in Low Pass/High Pass filter knobs, and comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro to get users started. The DDJ-SB is a great addition to the more powerful DDJ-SX and DDJ-SR that comes at a lower price while still maintaining lots of the features and functions that are found on the pricier models. It also has a new Filter Fade mode button that allows DJ's to crossfade music while simultaneously implementing a High-Pass filter. Finally, the DDJ-SB still includes the familiar aluminum top jog wheels, hot cues, loop controls, effects, and sample controls right in a layout similar to the higher-end Pioneer models.

The DDJ-SX is the biggest and most advanced Digital DJ controller developed by Pioneer DJ to date. The DDJ-SX is longer and wider than the previous DDJ controllers and it has more weight to it as well. There’s a also a variety of buttons, knobs, controls, and pads that all add an incredibly precise level of control to the Serato DJ software. The Pioneer DDJ-SX Digital DJ Controller with Serato DJ is an excellent and truly professional all-in-one mixing solution for any DJ who wants great sound quality, performance style controls, and a full DJ software package to get the most out of their controller experience.

The Pioneer XDJ-AERO is a new stand-alone Digital DJ mixstation that can be used in many different ways and in different combinations all on the fly. The Pioneer XDJ-AERO is a two-deck digital DJ MIDI/HID controller that can work with almost any DJ software of your choice. Unlike other models however it can function as a true standalone two channel DJ mixer ( no laptop needed) by playing audio files directly from on-board USB flash/hard drives. Furthermore the AERO can even transfer audio files wirelessly between up to four different Wi-Fi enabled devices that are running the Rekordbox Pioneer DJ library software. All of these functions can be performed on each deck individually meaning the DJ has the choice of using the XDJ-AERO in hybrid mode to mix between different tracks in different modes. The XDJ-AERO is a solid all-in-one mixstation that gives DJ’s so many playback options that it can be used in many different setups in many different ways. I recommend the Pioneer XDJ-AERO to DJ’s who need this level of versatility (with or without a computer) and don’t want to be boxed into one way of playing music.
