Fully supported in Serato DJ Pro 2.2.3, the controller delivers 16 performance pads per deck for the first time in Serato DJ Pro, along with touch sensitive slide FX strips that give control of up to three Serato DJ Pro FX simultaneously.

“The DDJ-XP2 has multiple preset pad modes, plus user mappable layers that gives you endless possibilities to manipulate and play with music” says Serato’s Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren. “Personally, I love using Serato DJ’s Pitch Play mode in tandem with the silent cue feature and echo out to create exciting transitions between songs.

The beauty of the DDJ-XP2 is that it allows all this potential, without sacrificing mobility”, Maclaren adds. “The DDJ-XP2 encompasses packing a punch with portability – an infinite amount of options packaged into a sleek, portable unit.”
