    The Pioneer DDJ-SB3 DJ controller has been developed in conjunction with DJ Jazzy Jeff to offer users of Serato DJ Lite a powerful, yet intuitive entry level controller that upgrades the incredibly popular DDJ-SB2 to allow users to create exciting performances as they hone their skills.

    So just what happens when DJ Jazzy Jeff and Pioneer get in the mix? Well they've come up with a new feature called Pad Scratch - this enables users of the DDJ-SB3 to reproduce scratches based on performances from the legendary hip-hop DJ's own recordings with ease, simply by hitting a pad! No matter which track you're playing or cueing simply press the performance pads for perfectly in time scratch performances without missing a beat. Take things further by combining with your own scratch patterns and the creative possibilities are limitless.

    The DDJ-SB3 improves on the SB2, gaining features from other models in the DDJ-S range including dedicated play and cue buttons and the independant auto-loop button. The addition of the all new FX Fade adds another layer of professional sheen to your performances, allowing you to control volume and trigger FX at the same time - exciting transitions have never been easier even if you're a relative novice behind the decks.

    Pioneer's SB3 also features a built in audio interface which makes plug and play operation a breeze straight out of the box using one USB cable. Thanks to the DDJ-SB3 being class compliant there's no need to install drivers and the microphone input delivers clear audio without distortion, even with a high input level. The SB3 is easily transported thanks to it's lightweight chassis and grab handles on both sides.
