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?

  • You'll learn how to set up your new controller and the software you need to get started
  • We'll teach you how to source, organise and prepare your music, including how to incorporate iTunes into your hardware and software set-up
  • You'll get the lowdown on how to mix, including auto beatmixing and counting beats, for amazing transitions
  • And finally, we'll show you how to use hot cues, loops, and samples, and even how to manually beatmix, so you can play just like pro DJs.

But that's not all! You'll also get:

...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

In this class, I'll walk you through all the basics of using controllers, Audio Effect Racks, and some other tricks.

Also in the class, I have a really special surprise. I've invited my friend James Patrick to show some of his techniques as well. James is a DJ that has toured the world and is known internationally for his engaging performances. He is going to be IN this class and has contributed several exclusive videos for this class.

Topics include:

  • Audio Effect Racks

  • Using Effect Rack Presets

  • Building our own Effect Racks

  • Parallel Processing

  • Fade To Grey

  • Performance Racks

  • Controllers and Controllerism

  • MIDI Mapping

  • The Ableton Push Interface
