By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | March 7, 2018
As a live DJ, you cannot afford to skimp on quality when it comes to buying your decks. Afterall, if your deck stops working, while you’re playing, your set over. Pioneer has a reputation for being well constructed and is an ideal solution for anyone who is looking to buy new decks. If you’re not sure where to start looking, you should check out the Pioneer DDJ-SB2 Portable 2-Channel Dejay Controller.
The DDJ-SB2 is so user-friendly that even a first time DJ can use the unit almost immediately. But, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packed with all the features you could want and need in a controller.

Tactile Performance Pads. Hit the top 4 rubber pads to trigger Hot Cue, Auto Loop, Manual Loop and Sampler – and the bottom 4 for immediate access to Play, Cue, Sync and Shift.
Large Jog Wheels. It may be compact, but the DDJ-SB2 features large, low-latency jog wheels to give you excellent scratch response and accuracy.
Dynamic DJ Play. Use the trim knob and level meters to check and adjust the input volume on each channel quickly.
Manual Filters. Independent low/high pass filter dials are inherited from the premium DDJ-SX2 and DDJ-SR controllers.
Go Beyond Mixing. Hit Filter Fade to add two high pass filters to the crossfader so that you can manipulate both the volume and bass filters with one hand for effortless mixes. That leaves the other hand free to get creative with loops, cue, samples and FX.
