Prepare for Battle: Introducing the DJM-S3 2-Channel Mixer

Serato DJ and Serato DVS Enabled with pro-grade features

TORRANCE, Calif.--()--We’re releasing a 2-channel mixer that offers a new entry point into the Serato DJM Series; the DJM-S3. The DJM-S3 is Serato DJ and DVS enabled thanks to its built-in sound card inherited from the professional DJM-S9 - so you can plug it into your PC/Mac and start using it with Serato DJ (*1) immediately.

With its scratch-friendly layout, the DJM-S3 is built to withstand intense performances and the highly durable Magvel crossfader, inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, provides a smooth, accurate response. The mixer is Serato DVS Enabled, so you can control your digital tracks via turntables using the Serato Control Vinyl (*2). Bringing even more creativity to your performances, you can also connect the DDJ-SP1 controller (*3) and use its large Performance Pads for tactile control of many Serato DJ features, including its FX.

The DJM-S3 will be available from September at an MAP of $499.
