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.
Watch Pioneer’s promo video below, which features DMC world champ, Mr Switch, and get more info on their website.
The UK native’s set featured a variety of genres, including hip-hop, trap, electro swing, funk-influenced tracks, and more. He performed with two limited gold PLX-1000-N turntables and a DJM-S9-N mixer.
In 2011, Switch became the first DJ to perform on the BBC Proms, an annual classical music festival held at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Watch him above on DJsounds.
If our review of Pioneer DJ’s DJM-S9 mixer didn’t convince you, maybe this new routine from Mr Switch will. The DMC champ’s video is not only an impressive display of turntablism but an excellent showcase of the S9’s features.
Watch the routine above, which makes use of Terrorbyte’s Eastern-flavored track, “Shaolin Drunken Bass.”
