From complete beginner to playing on your Pioneer DDJ-SB2 using beatmixing, cues, loops, samples & more

You're here because you've got (or are thinking of buying) one of the most popular DJ controllers, the Pioneer DDJ-SB2, and want to know how to play awesome DJ sets on it.

I'm here because I make DJ and DJ/producer courses for Digital DJ Tips, the online DJ school of choice for over 18,000 students in 105 countries.

Welcome To How To DJ With The Pioneer DDJ-SB2

Here at Digital DJ Tips, we train DJs and DJ/producers from beginner right up to fully pro. Scratch DJs, mobile/wedding DJs, club DJs and music producers have all turned their dreams into full-time careers by following our full curriculum.

But we also know that many DJs give up in their first six weeks!

They find taking those first steps in digital DJing just too hard and so their new gear ends up gathering dust under the stairs. Even if they persevere, it can take them months to nail the basics.

That's why we've created our "How To DJ With" series.

Featuring the same world-class instructors who teach our pro curriculum, these concise and practical courses take you from complete beginner (yes, we mean complete beginner) to being a DJ!

You'll master the gear, the music, the skills and the features so that you too can pull tricks that will amaze your friends and family, and help you to pack dancefloors right from the very start.

What makes this course so different?  Apart from being absolutely FREE!

  • It doesn't throw jargon and features at you with no explanation of what or why.
  • It doesn't lose sight of the fact that you want to know the important stuff so you can actually play the music you love to other people, fast!
  • And crucially, it doesn't forget what it's like to be a beginner.
  • Get started today and join the thousands of happy students of Digital DJ Tips - and who knows, it could be your first step to a changed career, fulfilling a lifelong dream

So what does this course cover?

  • We'll teach you how to source, organise and prepare your music, including how to incorporate iTunes into your hardware and software set-up

12 hours of live classroom training via our Digital DJ Tips StudentLive monthly webinars, where you get to ask questions and get instant help with your DJing

Welcome to your new controller
It's an exciting moment! Let's get your controller out of the box and show you around. By the end of this lesson you'll be clear about all the controls on your DDJ-SB2, and where everything plugs in to the controller.
Downloading and Installing Serato DJ Lite
Your Pioneer DDJ-SB2 needs software in order to work, and you'll need to head online to get it. In this lesson, we'll show you where to go, and how to get everything downloaded and installed correctly without a hitch.
Connecting Your Controller, Headphones and Speakers
In this lesson, you'll learn how to hook up your controller to your laptop, how to attach a a pair of speakers (you'll need to use external speakers with your DDJ-SB2), and where to plug your headphones in. By the end of the lesson, you're fully set up...
Running Serato DJ Lite For The First Time
While it can look a little complicated when you first see it, Serato DJ Lite is actually pretty straightforward to use... when you know what's what. By the end of this lesson, you'll have got everything working, and have a good idea of your software's features.
How the DDJ-SB2 Mirrors Serato DJ
In this lesson you'll see how DDJ-SB2 controller mirrors the Serato DJ software interface on your computer or laptop. This will get you more familiar with the way the hardware and software relate to each other.
Getting Your Music On
Finding tunes, organising your music and generally getting you party ready!
Where's My Music!?
In this lesson, you'll learn about the music file browser in Serato DJ Lite, which is where your music library will live. You'll find out how to drag and drop music files both into the browser and onto the decks, and we'll talk about using iTunes to get better organised, too.
How To Use iTunes To Organise Your DJ Library
Maybe you already use iTunes to organise your music, maybe not - but if you do (or if you want to), there are lots of tricks to ensuring it works well with Serato DJ Lite. Indeed, miss some of these settings, and it won't work at all! Lucky this lesson has everything you need to know.
How To Organise Playlists In iTunes or Serato DJ Lite
One of the signs of a good DJ is that he or she can get just the right track to their fingertips, fast! In order to do that, you need to use playlists. Here, you'll learn about using playlists in both iTunes and in Serato DJ Lite.
Want More Music? Here’s Where To Get Them
Getting music onto your decks is a bit more involved than just connecting up your Spotify or Apple Music account. In fact, to DJ using Serato (as with most DJ software), you actually need to have music files that you've bought, right there on your laptop. So let's go shopping...
You're going to do your first mix, then rapidly improve your techniques, learning to line up (or "sync") your beats and tempos, and to count bars of music (the BIG DJ secret).Exciting!
  • No pre-knowledge is required - enthusiasm is all you need
  • A PC or Mac
  • No software is required in advance of the course (the software you need is available free to download)
  • Some music files to mix with (we'll show you where and how to get 'em)
  • A pair of headphones and a powered speaker or speakers that you can plug in to your controller
