Meet the DDJ-SB3-S

Limited-edition version of Serato DJ Lite controller in new, pure-silver color

Brighten up your sets with the DDJ-SB3-S, a brand-new limited-edition version of one of our most popular DJ controllers. Featuring high-quality, silver-colored aluminum jog wheels and a matching body, the new unit brings a fresh look to parties and your home set-up.

The DDJ-SB3-S includes all the features from the original DDJ-SB3, the 2-channel controller which unlocks Serato DJ Lite. Simply plug the unit into a computer running the software and start DJing.

Keen to develop your skills? The controller’s intuitive interface is ideal for learning the basics on, as well as moving onto more advanced techniques. And special features enable you to easily create professional-sounding performances – even if you’ve never stepped behind the decks before. Use Pad Scratch to effortlessly reproduce scratches recorded by DJ Jazzy Jeff and take advantage of FX Fade to ensure your mixes are smooth.

The DDJ-SB3-S will be available in selected regions (only available at specific retail stores in Asia Pacific, the Americas and Latin Americas, and not available in the EMEA regions) from mid-July at an MAP of $249.

You can unlock Serato DJ Lite by plugging the DDJ-SB3-S into a PC/Mac running the software – you don’t need a license key or subscription. If you want to use more advanced features and FX, you can upgrade to Serato DJ Pro if you buy a license key or subscription. You can download Serato DJ Lite from here.

Key features of the DDJ-SB3-S

1. Limited-edition striking, intuitive visual design

The DDJ-SB3-S feels natural to use thanks to the clear visual division of the player and mixer sections, which respectively feature a high-quality, hairline and glossy finish. With its striking silver color, this new version of the popular controller brings a distinctive look and all the aesthetic style to match your DJ performances.

2. Designed for natural use with Serato DJ Lite

The layout design of the DDJ-SB3-S is inherited from the top models in the DDJ-S series. The jog wheels, Performance Pads, play and cue buttons, independent Auto Loop buttons, and all the knobs and fader positions in the mixer section are arranged in a way that enables you to craft intuitive, professional DJ performances.

3. Pad Scratch for easy, professional scratch performances

Simply press the Performance Pads on the DDJ-SB3-S to use the Pad Scratch feature and imitate eight different scratch techniques recorded by DJ Jazzy Jeff. Any track that you’re playing or have cued up will be scratched, and the scratch speed automatically matches the track’s BPM. So, even if you have no experience, you can create professional scratch performances without breaking rhythm. Use the feature in isolation or combine it with your own scratching on the other deck for limitless creative possibilities.

4. FX Fade for smooth mixing

Reduce the volume and apply FX to a track at the same time. Whether you’re an experienced DJ or a beginner, this enables you to smoothly transition to your incoming track, even if you’re playing with different genres of music. There are eight FX patterns to choose from – two of each of the following types: high pass filter, low pass filter, loop playback, and back spin.

5. Other features

  • Built-in sound card – plug and play by connecting to your PC/Mac using a single USB cable

  • Mic input circuit – clear audio, even with high input level
  • USB bus powered – no need to find an outlet
