Pioneer unveil the DDJ-SB3 controller

The DDJ-SB3 features all the bells and whistles you’d expect in a high-end DJ controller, including jog wheels, performance pads, play and cue buttons, and independent auto loop buttons. 


New features include an FX Fade feature, which enables you to reduce the volume and apply FX to a track at the same time, allowing you to create smooth transitions with the eight featured FX patterns that include high and low pass filters, loop playback, and back spin.


Another new addition to this controller is the pad scratch function, allowing you to imitate eight of DJ Jazzy Jeff’s trademark scratch techniques (the scratch is automatically matched to the track’s BPM). Other key features built into this unit include a built-in audio interface, a mic input, and bus powering. 


Here’s a flashback to a classic DJ Jazzy Jeff track with The Fresh Prince himself to fuel your DJ inspiration:
