Following its announcement on Tuesday, Mojaxx has provided a first look at Pioneer DJ’s new DDJ-800 controller. The device, which is designed for rekordbox dj, is a more portable and affordable version of the DDJ-1000.
Pioneer DJ changed the game when it introduced the DJM-909 mixer in 2004. Equipped with 50 effects and a touchscreen, the DJM-909 was ahead of its time.
Not only did it become a favorite among club DJs, but it also paved the way for future two-channel mixers by Pioneer and its competitors. That includes the company’s extremely popular DJM-S9.
Pioneer DJ has announced the DDJ-SX3, an update to its hugely successful DDJ-SX series of controllers.
Designed for use with Serato DJ Pro, the unit expands on the functionality of the previous generation. It adds a second USB port for easy changeovers and back-to-back sets, and a third microphone input, making the DDJ-SX3 a great choice for DJs who work with singers, MCs, and other live performers.
The DDJ-SX3 comes with licenses for Serato DJ’s Flip and Pitch & Time expansion packs and is the first model in the SX series to have dedicated pitch play controls. The mixer section now features four standalone Color FX, Echo, Jet, Noise and Filter, which will be familiar to users of the company’s club mixers.
Available in early June, the DDJ-SX3 is set to retail for $999 — the same price as the previous DDJ-SX2.

The first new hardware to be released with Serato’s new DJ Lite software, the DDJ-SB3 includes elements from the company’s higher-end controllers, such as performance pads, independent auto loop buttons, and control over four decks.
The unit also includes a unique new Pad Scratch feature, co-developed with DJ Jazzy Jeff, which enables users to trigger eight preset scratches by pressing the performance pads.
The DDJ-SB3 will be available in stores soon, priced at $249. Find out more at Pioneer DJ’s website, and check out the introduction video to hear Jazzy Jeff talk about the new features.
