Pioneer DJ has announced two new products: a two-channel battle mixer called the DJM-S3 and an upgrade to their portable DDJ-SR1 Serato DJ controller.
The DJM-S3 has a scratch-friendly layout with a durable Magvel crossfader, which is taken from the DJM-900NXS2 mixer. It also inherits a built-in sound card from the DJM-S9, making it Serato DJ- and DVS-enabled. Other key features include independent channel filters and two headphone outputs.
The DDJ-SR2 includes the latest features in Serato DJ, including the Pitch ‘n Time DJ Expansion Pack, for which it has dedicated hardware controls. It is 18 percent lighter than its predecessor and comes with multicolored performance pads.
The DJM-S3 and DDJ-SR2 will be available in September with a suggested retail price of $499 and $699, respectively.
