Pioneer DJ has announced the DJM-S11 mixer, the successor to its game-changing DJM-S9. The two-channel, four-deck battle mixer builds off the success of the previous iteration with some major additions while improving on its predecessor’s key features.
Most notably, the DJM-S11 comes equipped with a 4.3-inch touch screen that displays waveforms, a track browser, FX, and more. The display has a day mode option, similar to that of Serato DJ Pro, which makes the screen easier to view in daylight. An industry-first feature called “Deck 3/4 Control” allows access to decks three and four via the touch screen, to enhance the creative possibilities of live mashups and remixes.
Another notable addition is that the mixer includes dual USB inputs for connecting CDJs and controllers. It features a number of new pad modes as well.
Pioneer DJ will also be releasing the DJM-S11-SE, a special edition that is visually reminiscent of their highly-regarded DJM-909 mixer.
The DJM-S11 is available now at a suggested retail price of $1,999 USD, while the DJM-S11-SE retails for $2,099 USD. In related news, Serato has released Serato DJ Pro 2.4.1, which includes support for the mixers.

The Beatsource LINK streaming service for open-format DJs is now supported by Soundiiz and TuneMyMusic, two separate services that allow users to transfer their playlists between music streaming platforms. On this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx shows us how to use the two apps to transfer playlists from Spotify to Beatsource LINK.
Using Soundiiz or TuneMyMusic, Beatsource LINK subscribers can transfer their playlists from services like Spotify and Apple Music to Beatsource LINK, and instantly DJ with them. SoundCloud, TIDAL, YouTube, Amazon Music, Deezer, and Google Play Music are also supported.
Soundiiz offers two plans: free and premium at $3 a month. The free version lets DJs transfer one playlist at a time, whereas the premium version enables DJs to transfer multiple playlists at once and sync them.
A paid version of TuneMyMusic enables users to sync playlists between services. It costs $4.50 a month or $2 a month when billed annually.
