Features
This unit is an all-in-one DJ system combining Pioneer DJ units that
have earned a high reputation among professional DJs for their high
operability with the “Serato DJ” DJ software from Serato. It is equipped
with operating interfaces that have been optimized for operating Serato
DJ. The interfaces are positioned with room to spare over the large body,
allowing the various functions of Serato DJ to be operated intuitively and
accurately. Also, this unit is equipped with the new “Pad Plus” function
that allows for more individualistic DJ performances using the pads. In
addition, a steel material is used for the top panel for a robust design
allowing the unit to stand up to aggressive performances.
“BIG JOG”
This unit is equipped with large jog dials for smooth operability, so users
can scratch with the feel of an analog player.
“PERFORMANCE PADS”
This unit is equipped with large performance pads allowing the four
functions of Serato DJ (Hot Cue, Roll, Slicer and Sampler) to be operated
with dynamic actions (tapping, tapping repeatedly, etc.). The pads are in
rubber, so they can be operated without getting tired, even during long
performances. When using the Sampler mode, users can select one of
four velocity curves to achieve dynamically inflected performances.
“PAD PLUS”
This unit is equipped with the new “Pad Plus” function by which hot cues
and samples can be rolled automatically in beat with a track’s BPM and
effects and filters can be applied simultaneously with a single action
by pressing and holding a pad to achieve highly individualistic perfor-
mances. It also has a new beat indicator that indicating the number of
beats, enabling accurate performances while watching the number of
beats used with the Pad Plus function.
#	 HOT CUE ROLL
#	 SAMPLER ROLL
	 Hot cues and samples can be rolled automatically in beat with a
track’s BPM by pressing and holding a pad. This makes it possible to
easily create sounds like drum rolls that were difficult to achieve with
previous performance pads and to add individualistic arrangements
to hot cue and sampler performances.
#	 COMBO FX
	 Effects and filters can be applied simultaneously by pressing and
holding a pad. This makes it possible to apply effects while reducing
the volume and achieve performances adding inflections to a track’s
development.
#	 TRANS PAD
	 A track’s sound can be automatically cut in rhythm with the BPM
by pressing and holding a pad. This can be combined with scratch-
ing and other techniques to create individualistic arrangements of
tracks.
Professional Build Quality & Design
A steel material is used for the top panel to achieve a robust design
allowing the unit to stand up to aggressive performances, and an alu-
minum material is used for the jog plates to achieve a high quality look.
This adds visual enjoyment to DJ performances in such settings as clubs
and home parties. Also, a rubber material is used for the controls and
pads to provide not only a high sense of quality but also high operability.
“Serato DJ” Supported
This unit supports Serato DJ, a DJ software application providing a great
number of the functions required for DJ performances. All of this unit’s
buttons and controls are preset to work with the software, so DJ perfor-
mances can be conducted simply by connecting this unit to a computer.
In addition, Pioneer has collaborated with Serato to jointly develop the
“Slip” function.
“SLIP MODE”
This unit is equipped with a “Slip Mode” function with which the music
continues in the background while scratching or playing loops, hot cues,
etc. This enables DJ performances without changing the development of
the original track.
“2-CHANNEL MIXER”
This unit is equipped with a “2-channel Mixer” function with which the
tracks playing on the left and right decks can be identified intuitively,
making it suited for scratching. It is also equipped with the “Cross Fader
Reverse” function with which the left and right decks can be reversed,
so users can scratch in a way that matches their DJing style. In addition,
the unit can be used as a 4-channel mixer by using the deck selection
buttons provided in the player section.
USB BUS POWER
This product supports USB bus power. It can be used simply by connect-
ing it to a computer with a USB cable.
HIGH SOUND QUALITY
The audio output circuitry uses a low-jitter clock and high performance
DAC to reproduce the original sound faithfully and achieve clear club
sound. In addition, the sound quality technology Pioneer has developed
with its professional series is used to achieve the industry’s highest level
of sound quality for a DJ controller.

About the driver software and
setting utility software
This unit functions as an audio device conforming to the ASIO
standards.
Using the settings utility software
This function can only be used by those using a Windows operating
system.

 Launching the settings utility software
Click the Windows [Start] menu>[All
Programs]>[Pioneer]>[DDJ_SR]>[DDJ_SR ASIO Settings
Utility].

 Adjusting the buffer size
In the same way as the buffer size setting in the Serato DJ software,
decreasing the value of the [Kernel Buffers] setting lowers the transfer
delay (latency) of the audio data, while increasing the value reduces the
tendency for dropouts in the audio data (breaks in the sound).
The setting at [USB BUFFER SIZE (LATENCY)] in the Serato DJ soft-
ware’s [SETUP] menu has priority for the buffer size. (The default setting
is 512 samples/10 ms.)
!	 For details on making the settings on the DJ software, see the Serato
DJ software manual.
!	 If the [Buffer Size] or [Kernel Buffers] number is made large, drops
in the data (breaks in the sound), etc., occur less easily, but the time
lag due to transmission delays in the audio data (latency) increases.

 If breaks in the sound occur with the default
setting
1	 Launch [DDJ_SR ASIO Settings Utility] and change
[Kernel Buffers] to [4].
2	 Set [USB BUFFER SIZE (LATENCY)] in the Serato DJ
software to the minimum buffer size at which no breaks
in the sound occur.

 If no breaks in the sound occur with the default
setting
1	 Set [USB BUFFER SIZE (LATENCY)] in the Serato DJ
software to the minimum buffer size at which no breaks
in the sound occur.
2	 Launch [DDJ_SR ASIO Settings Utility], change [Kernel
Buffers] to [2], and check that no breaks in the sound
occur.
3	 If no breaks in the sound occur, set [USB BUFFER SIZE
(LATENCY)] in the Serato DJ software to the minimum
buffer size at which no breaks in the sound occur. If
breaks in the sound do occur, change [Kernel Buffers] in
the [DDJ_SR ASIO Settings Utility] to [3].
Checking the version of the driver
software
Click the Windows [Start] menu>[All
Programs]>[Pioneer]>[DDJ_SR]>[DDJ_SR Version Display
Utility].
