Having been in the position of reporting on gold Pioneer DJ gear a couple of times before, I’m running out of obvious gold themed headlines to tag to the stories. But I’ve never been down the C3PO route before. So rather than just wrap some whimsical words around another limited edition paint job story, I got pre-breakfast creative with Photoshop, to quickly announce that the DDJ-SX2-N (a very droid sounding name) is the limited edition Serato DJ controller you’re looking for.

We’ve intercepted this message from the empire:

Pioneer DJ DDJ-SX2-N limited edition gold Serato DJ controller (3)

Gold Rush: Introducing the DDJ-SX2-N

Limited edition 4-channel Serato DJ controller in new gold finish

We’re releasing an exclusive new version of one of our most popular Serato DJ controllers in a stunning gold finish. Production of the Serato DVS Upgrade Ready 4-channel DDJ-SX2-N will be strictly limited to just 1000 units, each featuring a plaque engraved with a unique serial number, so you can create a one-of-a-kind DJ set-up.

The DDJ-SX2 gives you native control over Serato Flip – the Expansion Pack for Serato DJ that lets you record and replay hot cue sequences on the fly – and you can get hands on with the latest features in the Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Pack, with Key Shift, Key Sync and Pitch Play controls. The DDJ-SX2 also inherits features from the flagship DDJ-SZ, including Performance Pads with multicoloured cue point LEDs and on-jog digital cue point markers. Plus, it’s Serato DVS Upgrade Ready and boasts responsive jog wheels, making it the scratch DJ’s perfect companion.

The DDJ-SX2-N will be available from mid-September at an SRP of €1,149 including VAT. Licences for the Serato Flip and Serato Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Packs are included.

And that’s me out of Star Wars themed badinage.
