Pioneer DJ Launches DJM-S11 Professional 2-Channel DJ Mixer




Pioneer DJ has introduced the new DJM-S11 professional 2-channel, 4-deck battle mixer bringing enhancements to various elements from its predecessor, the DJM-S9, and offers a host of brand-new features to help DJs perform more freely with Serato DJ Pro or rekordbox.

When scratching and making mash-ups on the fly, every second is priceless. The DJM-S11 allows DJs to spend more time focusing on their mix thanks to the mixer’s 4.3-inch customizable touch screen, which has all the information DJs need. Browse tracks, check on playback positions and waveforms, and dynamically change the texture of the music by moving a finger across the Touch FX screen. With Touch MIDI, DJs can even trigger functions in their DJ software. All this meaning they can stay focused and keep their eyes on the mixer during their performance.

Packing more sounds into a set can make the difference between a good crowd reaction and a great one. In a battle, it could even push a DJ up the podium from second to first place. Thanks to Deck 3/4 Control, DJs can play up to four tracks at once on the DJM-S11. The additional decks appear on the touch screen with a selection of controls so artists can browse and load tracks, adjust EQs, set loops, trigger Hot Cues, and more. If using Serato DJ Pro, with Deck Move DJs can move tracks from deck 1 to 4 and deck 2 to 3 without a break in the music –freeing up the main decks to prepare to drop in the next track. DJs can also switch on Dual Deck control to use one fader, knob, or control vinyl to manipulate the tracks loaded to decks 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. This means DJs can scratch two tracks at once, add effects, or adjust their volume simultaneously.



As well as a different look, there are enhancements made in the way the DJM-S11 feels compared to its predecessor. Its Performance Pads are larger and the MAGVEL FADER PRO has been strengthened to give you more stability when you’re scratching. There’s a host of fresh features including, 4.3-inch touch screen, Deck 3/4 Control, 22 built-in effects, Smooth Echo, a new effect that can automatically engage when DJs move the faders or hit the pads they’ve assigned as triggers. Sound quality has been improved too, with clear, powerful audio that reflects every nuance of the performance.

The DJM-S11 has been specially designed so DJs can effortlessly play the way they like. Its built-in USB hub enables to directly connect with CDJs and the DDJ-XP2. It’s also compatible with Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox straight out of the box with no need for license keys, so simply plug in and play. For DJs who want use another DJ application - Every fader, knob, and button are fully MIDI mappable.
