The Pioneer DDJ-SP1 DJ Controller for Serato is the first add-on DJ control surface that provides limitless access to Serato DJ! This slim and compact controller uses 16 rubber performance pads with LED illumination along with a wide array of controls, buttons, and knobs to trigger a variety of unique audio samples and effects. The DDJ-SP1 is designed to be the ideal companion to the Pioneer DJM-900SRT mixer but can also be matched with other systems via its MIDI controller functionality.

- Dedicated sampler volume slider conveniently located to quickly control the output of the 16 trigger pads
- Slip Mode function enables continuous music playback in the background even when loops and hot cues are being performed
- FX Knobs/Buttons are arranged for easy operation of iZotope effects within SERATO DJ software

Sixteen rubber Performance Pads are assigned to seven modes: Hot Cue, Roll, Sample, Slicer, Auto Loop, Hot Loop and Manual Loop. The LED illuminated pads’ Velocity Mode lets DJs control the sample volume with the amount of pressure they apply. LED illumination on each pad gives DJs an instant visual reference for the state of play.
Sampler Volume Fader
Sampler volume can be controlled intuitively in finger drum performances by sampler volume fader just next to the performance pads.
The DDJ-SP1 features Slip Mode which 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. Plus, precision loops, scratches and reverses are made easy by Slip Mode by connecting a CD Player or DJ controller.
The Pioneer DDJ-SP1 controller has knobs and buttons in the same layout as Serato DJ for operation of iZotope effects, providing more intuitive effect controls.
Professional build quality and ultimate portability
The compact, slim DDJ-SP1 was built with portability and professional use in mind. The rubber pads and buttons are robust and durable, while the aluminum top plate gives the controller a premium look that will look good in any set-up.
Free download of the ‘Serato Video’ plug-in for sound and image control
A voucher for a free download of the Serato Video video control plug-in, which works with Serato’s DJ software (‘Serato DJ’, ‘Scratch Live’, ‘ITCH’) is included in DDJ-SP1. It makes it easy to insert various video mixes, effects and image files, etc. synced to music.
Fully MIDI assignable to control any DJ software
The Pioneer DDJ-SP1 can be used as a fully assignable MIDI controller and supports all kinds of MIDI-compatible software.
