Pioneer has combined the popular features of the DDJ-SB2 with their leading Serato DJ controllers, so learning to DJ is more accessible. The DDJ-SB3 DJ Controller is the ideal tool for beginners looking to hone their skills, this 2-channel controller is easy to navigate, featuring a professional-style layout inspired by the top DDJ-S range. Master Serato DJ Lite, then when you're ready, purchase Serato DJ Pro to progress on this machine. Transition between tracks with ease thanks to the added FX Fade feature and experiment with scratch effects without using turntables via the Pad Scratch function. Co-developed with DJ Jazzy Jeff, this technique adds scratch recordings to tracks at a touch of the Performance Pads.

Intuitive Layout
All of the features were designed to be where you need them, when you need them. The layout inherits elements from the DDJ-S series with jog wheels, Performance Pads, play and cue buttons, independent Auto Loop buttons, and all knobs and fader positions arranged in an easy-to-reach way that mimics professional gear.

Pad Scratch
Add scratch effects to cued and currently playing songs without a turntable thanks to Pad Scratch. This effect lets you reproduce, and create patterns from, eight of hip-hop legend DJ Jazzy Jeff's different scratch recordings. As the speed automatically matches the BPM, you won't need to worry about breaking rhythm.

Smooth Transitions
Whether you're an experienced DJ or beginner, mixing is seamless with the FX Fade feature. By reducing the volume and applying FX at the same time, FX Fade smoothly blends tracks, even those from clashing genres.

Easy to learn



Definitely a winner!!!!


This is my 13 year old son first experience with music equipment. He loves this controller and everyone listening loves the sound it produces.



Good starter / beginner controller


Great starter controller that works with free software Serato



Best dj controller for beginner dj's


Great product for beginner dj's and pretty high quality materials, its more future proof than most beginner dj controllers. my only complaints is it doesnt come with serato DJ Pro and no XRL ports. #sweepstakes



I will be back soon


for my first purchases it was awesome is everything I thought thank you Mohan



New DJ? This is the controller you're looking for


Pretty sweet controller for beginner DJs.








I would buy the controller again if I need one.


Rena is so much help on how to use this controller. I will be starting my DJ job with the Beach Boppers of Orlando in this January and I will be making trips to talk to him about the controler to make sure I know how to hook it up and how to use it.



DJ controllers


The SB3 is a good tool for any DJ



Great entry level controller


For the price, it performs great. I haven't found a way to switch the crossfader mode, which would be useful to unlink one side or the other from the crossfader, but other than that it does a great job for the money.
