Boost your creativity with the DDJ-SX3 4-channel DJ controller for Serato DJ Pro. The DDJ-SX3 is strong yet portable with a familiar layout and lower latency jog wheels. Loaded with advanced features, this controller is ideal for professional mobile DJs performing at club nights, parties, weddings and corporate events.

Collaborate with MCs, rappers or singers by plugging in 3 different microphones at once via the 3 Mic inputs, then control EQs and apply FX to each. Connect 2 computers at the same time for easy DJ changeovers via the dual USB ports. Coming with free Pitch 'n Time DJ and Serato Flip Expansion Packs, you can stretch, mix and cut with precision.

KEY FEATURES

Enhanced Vocals
Whether you're performing with MCs, singers or guest speakers, 3 people can entertain the crowd at the same time via the 3 Mic inputs. Ensure crystal-clear speech with 3-band EQ, low-cut filter, compressor and reverb control on each. Enhance vocals with Sound Colour FX and Serato DJ Pro FX.

Dual USB Ports
Connect 2 computers at the same time for seamless DJ transitions, back-to-back performances or as a backup computer in case your laptop crashes.

Professional Interface
With a layout inherited from Pioneer's flagship Serato controllers, the DDJ-SX3 feels familiar to use. Featuring 4 inputs, connect to CDJs, analogue turntables and use as a stand-alone DJ mixer. Plug in various speakers via the XLR and RCA Master Out and TRS jack Booth Out terminal.

Performance Pads
Use the large multicoloured Performance Pads to instantly trigger 11 Serato DJ Pro features. Watch their colours and illumination change to show the selected pad mode and playing status.

Low-Latency Jog Wheels
The latency of the jog wheels has been reduced for even smoother scratching than its predecessor. Optimised for a perfect scratch response, the illuminated cue point markers with cue countdown give you effortless control without needing to look at your laptop.

This actually a great unit BUT you must be aware of the the issues that SOME of them have. So when the SX3 was first released, they had an issue with audio drops, the platter freezing and an inability to play tracks on one or both decks. There may also be a couple other problems as I had a unit where the first and second mic inputs (on channels 3 & 4) didn't work. Now these units that had the issues were recalled by Pioneer and they were replaced with a fleet of working units. There are definitely a good amount of non-working ones still out there in the circulation. You can check by looking at the box AND the unit. The working units will have a printed black dot on the serial number tag. There are a good amount of recalled units being sold with a fake black dot. I have come across two already where the dot was definitely drawn on with a sharpie. If you have a recalled unit, get in touch with Pioneer and they will replace it for you, free of charge. If you're in Canada like me, you will need to make sure that they know you're in Canada as a lot of the call centers are for the USA. If you have a recalled unit and need it to work temporarily, try setting the platter sensitivity down to 3 or less. This worked for me and I had no problems with freezing when I did that. You can set the sensitivity with the buttons on the outside of the platters labeled '1, 3' and '2, 4' They are the buttons that allow you to change between decks 1/2/3/4. Hold shift and press 1/2/3/4 and the platter will show where your sensitivity is via light up area on the jog wheel. Set it to 3 or less and you should be okay. This is not guaranteed but it worked for me. Happy Holidays DJs.

I bought it 2 weeks ago and I will be returning it asap. It shuts down mid set multiple times. Pioneer is aware of the issues. Hopefully when I talk to then tomorrow they will fix it. Sucks. High hopes but nothing but disappointment.
