Quick Look: Pioneer DDJ-SX3

    Pioneer’s third iteration of its 4-channel DJ controller DDJ-SX sports significant upgrades professional DJs and those looking to improve their craft would appreciate.

    The DDJ-SX3 has new features and expanded connectivity for smooth audio transitions. It has an intuitive interface, familiar layout, and high-quality casing, as well as dual USB ports for seamless changeovers when switching devices.

    The new DJ controller also comes built with a mic input terminal on the front, allowing DJs to talk to the crowd without needing to occupy any of the four mixer channels. Additionally, it has twin mic inputs on the rear along with controls for modifying levels, tweaking EQs, and applying effects to mics independently.

    Rounding out the deal are four popular Sound Color FX and Key Shift, Key Sync, and Pitch Play for effortlessly mixing tracks and creating live remixes.

    Key Features:

    • Three Mic inputs, plus Mic FX: users can control the level, EQ and low-cut filter, and add reverb and compressor to each – enabling you to tweak the sound to suit the venue and ensure clear speech and vocals. You can also enhance performances by applying Sound Color FX such as Echo, plus Serato DJ Pro FX, to the two Mics plugged into the rear panel.
