New Pioneer Serato DJ Controller that Scratches


Pioneer DJ introduces the latest DDJ-SB3 DJ controller, designed for Serato DJ Lite and co-developed with DJ Jazzy Jeff to offer the world's first Pad Scratch for performing scratches with the press of a button.

Pioneer has upgraded one of its popular Serato DJ controllers to create the 2-channel DDJ-SB3, for dedicated use with Serato DJ Lite (previously known as Serato DJ Intro). This new controller offers an intuitive interface for beginner DJs to craft professional performances and improve their skills. The DDJ-SB3 improves on the previous model (DDJ-SB2) with a more intuitive interface, and inherits traits from the layouts of the top models in the DDJ-S series, including the introduction of the dedicated Play and Cue buttons, and the independent Auto Loop button.

Some of the key features include:

  1. Jog wheels, performance pads, Play and Cue buttons, independent Auto Loop buttons, and all the knobs and fader positions in the mixer sections, are arranged in a way that enables intuitive, professional DJ performances.
  2. Any track that you're playing or have cued up will be scratched, and the scratch speed automatically matches the track's BPM, so if you have no experience, you can create professional scratch performances without breaking the rhythm.
  3. Using the new FX Fade feature, you can reduce the volume and apply FX to a track at the same time. This enables you to transition smoothly to your incoming track, even if you're playing with different genres of music. There are eight FX patterns to choose from.
  4. The DDJ-SB3 feels natural to use, thanks to the clear visual division of the player and mixer sections. They feature a glossy finish, respectively, and are equipped with aluminum jog wheels that create a quality look and feel.

You can utilize these features to create a professional performance, even if it's your first time behind the decks. The DDJ-SB3 unlocks Serato DJ Lite for free when plugged into the software. The Pioneer DJ DDJ-SB3 is available from B&H, so stop on by, look, and get behind the decks for a scratch.
