Pioneer DJ DJM-909

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.

Watch Mister Remix break down the DJM-909’s features and impact on this episode of DJcityTV’s Classic DJ Gear.

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.
