Pioneer DJ Launches DDJ-SB3 New Budget Serato Controller with Pad Scratch


Feature

Pioneer DJ has announced DDJ-SB3, the latest addition in its popular DDJ-SB controller for Serato DJ. With this new two channel DJ controller users can do transition between tracks using the new FX Fade feature and create and use scratch effects without the need for turntables.

KEY FEATURES OF THE DDJ-SB3

It has Pad scratch for easy, professional scratch performances

By simply pressing the Performance Pads on the DDJ-SB3, users can use the Pad Scratch feature to imitate eight different scratch techniques recorded by DJ Jazzy Jeff. Any track that users are palying or have cued up will be scratched, and the scratch speed automatically matches the track’s BPM.

FX fade for smooth mixing

Using the new FX Fade feature helps to reduce the volume and apply FX to a track at the same time. Whether someone is an experienced DJ or a beginner, this enables everyone to smoothly transition to your incoming track, even if users are playing with different genres of music. There are eight FX patterns to choose from, with two of each of the following types: high pass filter, low pass filter, loop playback and back spin.

Visual design enables intuitive performances

The DDJ-SB3 feels natural to use because of its clear visual division of the player and mixer sections, which feature a hairline and glossy finish respectively. The aluminum jog wheels create a quality look and feel.

OTHER FEATURES

• Built-in sound card (audio interface) – plug and play by simply connecting the controller to your laptop using a single USB cable.
• Class compliant – no need to install a driver.
• Mic input circuit – clear audio without distortion, even with high input level.
• USB bus powered.
• Grab handles on both sides – easy to carry.
• Paid upgrade to Serato DJ Pro (previously known as Serato DJ) – for more professional DJ performances. (available separately).
