Pioneer DJ has announced their latest two-channel battle mixer, the DJM-S7. The unit is geared toward open-format DJs, allowing a range of customization options to tailor the mixer to each individual’s performance style. It also comes in at a more affordable price point than Pioneer DJ’s other battle mixers.
The DJM-S7 has the 16 large performance pads (eight per channel) and Magvel fader their battle mixers are known for. Each channel’s pad modes are independent, meaning, for example, deck one’s pads can be set to trigger hot cues while deck two is set to the sample bank.
The effects section includes all 22 Beat FX from the DJM-S11, and the mixer also has Bluetooth connectivity for additional audio routing. Other features borrowed from the DJM-S11 (when used with Serato DJ Pro) are Scratch Bank, Gate Cue, and the aforementioned Combo Pad mode.
Loop MIDI, a new feature exclusive to the DJM-S7, allows DJs to use the effect levers to send MIDI messages to Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox, as a way to control performance features rhythmically.
Pioneer DJ’s DJM-S7 is available now at a suggested retail price of $1399 USD. Watch Mojaxx’s first look below.

The DJM-V10-LF’s crossfader has been removed in exchange for longer channel faders with optimized curves and a new custom-designed curve preset to ensure smooth and accurate mixes. This allows the new 60 mm shaft slide faders on the DJM-V10-LF to extend further down the top plate than the 45 mm faders on the original mixer. This development enables users to control the audio source volume from each channel more precisely.

Pioneer DJ has announced the DDJ-FLX6, a brand new four-channel controller supported in both rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro. The controller combines unique features and a professional club-style layout while staying portable and affordable.
The DDJ-FLX6 introduces Merge FX, a new feature that makes it easy for DJs to mix different music styles. The controller includes the Jog Cutter function that applies a professional scratch effect to the last Hot Cue or playback position on the deck in use and built-in presets containing a combination of Serato DJ Pro effects and looping controls. First introduced for the DJM-S11, the DDJ-FLX6 features Scratch Bank, which allows users to load scratch samples or full tracks for pad mode use.

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.
