Edited by Djinu, Alexander Avdeev, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In another video at Setup DDJ SX2 DJ Controller, we've shown how to set up the DDJ SX2 controller. This video will demonstrate how to start playing music through speakers on the DDJ SX2 controller. When we start playing music, we want to make sure that we do this in a controlled fashion so that we don't play music too loudly for the speakers.
