Pioneer DJ has upgraded one of its popular Serato DJ controllers to create the new 2-channel DDJ-SB3, designed for dedicated use with Serato DJ Lite (previously known as Serato DJ Intro). The new controller offers an intuitive interface for beginner DJs to craft professional performances and improve their skills.
The DDJ-SB3 improves on the DDJ-SB2, which gained a strong reputation with a wide range of DJs – from beginners to pros – thanks to its combination of professional features and easy portability. The interface of the DDJ-SB3 is even more intuitive to use than its predecessor’s, inheriting traits from the layouts of the top models in the DDJ-S series, including the introduction of dedicated Play and Cue buttons and an independent Auto Loop button.
In collaboration with DJ Jazzy Jeff, Pioneer DJ has also created Pad Scratch. The brand-new feature on the DDJ-SB3 enables DJs to reproduce scratches based on the legendary hip hop DJ’s own recordings by simply pressing the Performance Pads. Plus, smooth mixing is a breeze thanks to another new feature, FX Fade. Aspiring DJs can use these features to create a professional performance, even if it’s their first time behind the decks.
The DDJ-SB3 is available from today (1st March 2018) at an SRP of £229 including VAT.
