Serato DJ Lite controller inheriting the DDJ-SB3 features
Get your hands on an impressive new version of one of our most popular DJ controllers with the DDJ-SB3-N.
High-quality, gold-colored jog wheels and panel printings on the black body create a unique look that makes the DDJ-SB3-N stand out. The new model packs in all the features from the original DDJ-SB3, the 2-channel DJ controller designed for dedicated use with Serato DJ Lite.
The controller’s intuitive interface is ideal for developing your DJ skills and special features make it easy to 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, ensuring smooth mixes. Find out more about all the features of the DDJ-SB3-N below.
The DDJ-SB3-N will go on sale via certain channels in selected countries (only available at specific retail stores in the Americas and Latin America, and not available in the EMEA regions).
Unlock Serato DJ Lite by plugging the DDJ-SB3-N 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 by buying a license key or subscription.
To protect your DDJ-SB3-N from bumps and scrapes when you’re taking it to friends’ houses, we recommend carrying it in the DJC-B-WEGO3-BAG. Constructed with an EVA Durashock molded body, ballistic polyester, fleeced lining, and eggshell foam, it’s a hard-wearing but lightweight solution with a snug fit.

The layout design of the DDJ-SB3-N 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.
Simply press the Performance Pads on the DDJ-SB3-N 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.
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.
The DDJ-SB3-N feels natural to use thanks to the clear visual division of the player and mixer sections, which feature a hairline and glossy finish respectively. And, with aluminum jog wheels and other design flourishes finished in a striking gold color, this new version of the popular controller has a high-quality look and all the aesthetic style to match your DJ performances.
