PIONEER DDJ SZ2 Issues found:

Out of the box (PIONEER PRE-CONFIG)
I’m having an issue with the mapping of the DDJ SZ2. What is the proper configuration when ASSIGNING CHANNELS in both DJ PRO under preferences. (Example: Internal and External mixer mode channel examples) and how should this be configured on the Pioneer Utility Driver? Which allows you to assign which channels are going to be used, and in what order. I can not get the RECORD OUT, or MASTER VOLUME to be sent back via USB. Period. It will not work, unless you assign channel 1+2 to CROSSFADER A. Which for some odd reason also plays the cue and channel 2 audio, And if you assign the OSCiLATER to channel 3 or 4, you can also assign this channel to CROSSFADER A, and you can now here the oscillator by turning up the channel fader. Also, I don’t know why, but CHANNEL 1’s LFO/RFO Knob doesn’t work. CHANNEL 2 knob works, but not channel 1.

When I read the instruction manual provided by Pioneer, it states if you’re using any DJ application of other than Serato DJ, to please turn on off the SERATO SETUP that comes preconfigured by hitting the KEY LOCK button on the DDJ SZ2 while in UTILITY mode. When I disable the serrate config the DDJ SZ2 works great! The audio is also routed better, and is more lively in external mixer mode. NO ISSUE RUNNING THE SOUND BACK, OR CAPTURING THE REC/BOOTH OUT: all via one USB cable. I mean, thats the point of a MIDI controller :slight_smile: +But the lights on the freaking cogwheels don’t work!!! Probably the coolest feature of the controller, and I thought I had found the solution only to be disappointed.

Does anyone know of a fix for the above ?? I’m sure not the only person. that would like a diagram of what channels to assign what ? I mean, thats not like mapping out an entire board, someone just needs to figure it out, and document it. Any UBER nerd should be able to crush this task in no time, as just trying to play some music.

Thanks - SD

If i set to internal mode i can’t use the A & B usb input configuration properly, if i set to external i don’t get pre-cueing. I don’t want to disable the serato set up cause my buddy uses serato. Also having the same issue with LFO/RFO. Please help. What is the proper mapping from djay pro to the SZ2. What mode should i use, internal or external and do i need to go into MIDI setup to fox these issues?
