Checked other blogs and it seems to be a common issue with consumers who bought controller Xmas 2017. Pioneer controllers are designed to work with Serato, which means that they definitely work better with the software they're designed for. Treat each other with respect. I downloaded the serato dj intro latest version and also installed the pioneer ddj-sb2 latest drivers from their website. You'll immediately know what I mean.
No matter what view you set Serato with, the interface is better. Ultimately, do what's best for you but I strongly believe that Serato is superior software. Do you get audio through your headphones? I tried selecting that and nothing. Just usually a bit skeptical about the Rekordbox only controllers, but much respect to Pioneer. No sound from the cue or from speakers. I have kicked around the idea of using Rekordbox, but I have absolutely loved using djay Pro. Support the artists who make the music and software you use.
Clerk at store where I purchased was also miffed by the issues. A Headphone Cue Mix knob lets you adjust the volume of your cued deck versus the Master output, and makes for a better headphone monitoring experience while mixing. I figured I got a lemon. Any suggestions would be appreciated. This assigns the jogwheel, transport, library, and mixer controls to decks three and four. Just telling it like it is bro.
If you have any more questions, feel free to reply or message me. Using 4 pads instead of 8 is not a problem as I never go to 16 beat loop. Laz's tip for an aggregate device is good if you want to use your computer's audio output too - please follow his link to set this up. If you play a track live, please support the artist that spent countless hours producing that track. Read other blogs stating that Serato has issues w 2017 MacBook Pros w touchbar. I tried selecting that and nothing. Not sure why I would have to do that with serato and not do anything with pcdj? I find them bulky in a tight space….
It can be confusing at first, especially since there are only two volume faders on the controller, but you get used to it over time. You should still be able to get sound, Check the headphone mix- if it's on cue you'll need to make sure you've turned on cue for each channel you want to here orange buttons, also in the middle and ensure the obvious thing of having the headphone volume turned up. And as you say the silly button for the fader is pointless. Checked other blogs and it seems to be a common issue with consumers who bought controller Xmas 2017. Definitely not the gains or anything like that as I mentioned it worked right away with another software. I just requested a refund maybe you should too.

And you can design the mapping to work the way you want it to rather than the way some guy sitting in a cubical at Pioneer decides for you. The same goes for controllers that are designed for Trakor eg: Traktor S4. Just telling it like it is bro. Do not link to torrent sites. It also comes with a two-week free trial period for you to see if you like it enough to purchase the full version and you should! I suppose this is ultimately a matter of preference but the waveforms alone convinced me. Just an led to me as never use it…my friends use sx and sx2.
Not sure why I would have to do that with serato and not do anything with pcdj? Hey JapinoPapi, Are the tracks showing as playing within Serato?. If someone asks you for your page, that's cool, but unsolicited linking will get your post removed. Takeaway: Do you like having hands-on control of different effects? You will not be able to adjust the mix between the Master and the cued up track. If you could let me know how to do it, thatd be really great. Personally I use the sb2.
It packed some then-professional features like dedicated filter and browse knobs while looking the part. Read other blogs stating that Serato has issues w 2017 MacBook Pros w touchbar.
