Quick Look: Pioneer DDJ-SB3

The 2-channel Pioneer DDJ-SB3 is a DJ controller designed for dedicated use with Serato DJ Lite (previously known as Serato DJ Intro). This new controller offers an intuitive interface for beginner DJs to craft electric performances, as well as hone their skills.

The DDJ-SB3 is more intuitive than its predecessors, inheriting traits from the layouts of the top models in the DDJ-S series, and comes with new dedicated play and cue buttons and the independent Auto Loop button.

In collaboration with DJ Jazzy Jeff, Pioneer has created Pad Scratch. This new feature on the DDJ-SB3 enables you to reproduce scratches based on the hip hop DJ’s own recordings by simply pressing the Performance Pads. Plus, smooth mixing is a breeze thanks to another new feature, FX Fade.

  • Designed for use with Serato DJ Lite for intuitive DJ performances
  • World’s first Pad Scratch for easy, professional scratch performances
  • FX Fade for smooth mixing
  • Visual design enables intuitive performances
  • Built-in sound card (audio interface)
